Agilent Technologies Inc. and the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame announced that they will establish a collaborative research initiative aimed at developing the next generation of multiple-input, multiple-output wireless technologies.
L-com Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products has introduced two new HyperLink® brand horizontal polarized waveguide omnidirectional antennas. These rugged new 2.4 GHz antennas are available in 9 dBi and 13 dBi versions.
The MBA6-3.5DS45/2045 Multi-beam Hub Base Station Antenna has been developed by Cobham Antenna Systems, Microwave Antennas to enable MIMO radio system operators to meet their goal of 1 Gbps/km2 anywhere within a cell.
The demands of cost reduction and greater efficiency in cellular base station design are leading to a rapidly growing market for remote radio heads. According to a new study from ABI Research, this market is on track to exceed a value of $1 billion in 2017. Cellular base stations are now undergoing a design revolution. A base station was traditionally a rack of equipment inside a shelter. That design is now becoming anachronistic because it is expensive, and because the required coaxial cable running up the tower to the antennas often results in significant losses of power.
Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, announced it will attend the SAE Convergence Conference and Exhibition. The event will take place at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan, October 16-17, 2012. Laird Technologies will exhibit at booth #919.
