The 16×16 Planar Patch Fixed Beam Array Antenna can be used for base station point-to-point/multipoint links. This high-gain array provides coverage by use of satellite communication at Ka-band.
The antenna can be integrated in 5G V-band Access Point to provide omnidirectional coverage once stacked in 120 degree or 90 degree sectors.
Future applications for V-Band will be similar to that of Ka-Band where currently Ka-Band antennas are being used on vehicles for remote monitoring purposes and also to provide satellite broadband internet and communications on aircraft and marine vessels by the likes of Inmarst and ViaSAT.
The 5G-ready antenna patch feeds the radio module via microstrip transmission line.
