The Taoglas MA173 (Monsoon) is a low profile combination antenna. It integrates high-performing LTE MIMO antennas with an active GNSS antenna that supports both GPS L1 and Glonass L1 bands. The LTE MIMO antennas are designed for high efficiency, even without a ground plane. 4G LTE applications demand high-speed data uplink and downlink and the high efficiency and gain characteristics exhibited by this antenna help to achieve the required signal to noise ratio and throughput to solve these challenges. Dual GPS/Glonass systems can accelerate time to first fix, especially in challenging environments such as urban canyons or any environment where a large portion of the sky is blocked. A front-end SAW filter protects the GNSS antenna’s LNA from potentially damaging out-of-band wireless transmissions, ensuring that it can be used in environments where these signals might be encountered.
Typical applications for the MA173 include: HD Video over LTE, First Responder and Emergency Services, High Definition Video Broadcast Systems, and Digital Signage.
All antennas are enclosed in a fully IP67 waterproof housing designed for use in the most challenging of environments. Low loss cables are used to keep efficiency high over long cables lengths.
