Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Harris Communications, the nation’s leader in the creation, design and installation of enhanced wireless networks, cell phone repeaters,bi directional amplifier and bi directional antenna technology, announces the launch of their latest line of products that comply with the new changes that have been implemented by the FCC with new rules for cell phone boosters, giving booster makers an absolute advantage after years of debate over the issue. The FCC has also managed to get the nation's wireless carriers to all agree to the new changes in the rules.
AWT Global’s new ATC series low PIM anechoic chambers are designed for measuring antennas from 700 to 6000 MHz. Besides the high shielding coefficient of more than 90 dB, ATC series antenna test chambers generate lowest residual passive intermodulation (PIM). The combination of chamber geometry, specifically designed pyramidal electromagnetic absorbing material and innovative manufacturing techniques result in remarkable characteristics.
Premix, the leading specialist in conductive plastics, launches the PREPERM® product family with customizable dielectric properties for high-frequency applications. The new product range provides high-frequency device manufacturers with an outstanding material that maximizes performance without increasing overall costs. PREPERM grades can be cost-effectively injection molded to high frequency antenna parts.
Lab-Flex® AF, a modified version of the popular Lab-Flex series is now available from Florida RF Labs. This new family of cables has been enhanced to perform in typical harsh environments associated with airborne, shipboard and ground-based applications. Florida RF Labs proprietary cable assembly design utilizes a redundant sealing system to prevent water ingress in both cable and connector interfaces and it employs a very durable dielectric design which is able to withstand crushing or kinking.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced plans to release a new omnidirectional antenna specifically designed for broadband in-building distribution of modern wireless communication systems such as LTE, GSM, CDMA, PCS, 3G, WiFi, WLAN services in Q2 to the North American market.
AWT Global has launched a new line of field strength meters with spectrum analyzer capability: The UBA 9290 Series. The battery operated, handheld analyzers are well suited for wireless field applications but are also a very useful tool in the RF laboratory.
Medical devices that send small amounts of data wirelessly will be able to run for months or even years on a coin cell battery when they use new Bluetooth Smart™ modules announced today by global technology leader Laird Technologies.
