DUBLIN – 30 September, 2020 – Taoglas®, a leading enabler of digital transformation through IoT, Raydiant, digital signage and in-store experience solutions provider and Premier Wireless Solutions (PWS), today announced their collaboration to deliver next generation digital signage solutions.
Using Taoglas’ TG.09 4G Terminal Hinged SMA(M) Mount Monopole Antenna means compact, efficient, reliable and repeatable antenna performance is assured, a critical factor when deploying cellular applications. Combining this antenna choice with Raydiant’s best-in-class digital signage Experience Platform, the team has delivered the ScreenRay LTE solution, which gives customers full-throttle connection to Raydiant’s entire Experience Platform, from anywhere in the world, with 4G LTE access.
We have collaborated with PWS and Taoglas to define the best RF performance and antenna design as it needed to be certified on all major operators globally and needed to meet a wide set of spectrum demands, at the same time, we wanted to collaborate with leading design houses of IoT solutions since we have multiple innovative designs on our roadmap. The combination of PWS and Taoglas provided the experience and global expertise to engineer and develop our solution. Taoglas and PWS were engaged at every step of the process, moving quickly and smoothly from strategic planning to design, engineering and reliability testing to final production of the components and the device.
Bobby Marhamat, CEO of Raydiant
This will be a revolutionary move for businesses being run from food trucks, farmers markets, music festivals, pop-up shops, trade shows or anywhere else with limited wired connectivity, as this latest solution means location is no longer an issue. Password juggling, limited range Wi-Fi, error codes and corporate firewalls are now problems of the past. Additionally, when data is sent through a 4G LTE network, like the one you get with ScreenRay LTE, it’s securely encrypted. Antenna selection is an important consideration in any cellular application for throughput considerations, fringe area connectivity and reliability and also power consumption. The aesthetics of the TG.09 antenna make it very popular for customer facing devices.
We are thrilled to be selected as the antenna partner of choice for Raydiant’s ScreenRay LTE solution and to continue to strengthen our great relationship with PWS, Antennas are a common failure point of all cellular products but at Taoglas we fully understand the pitfalls and have ensured millions of devices are operating optimally on the world’s networks.
