In considering MIMO LTE antenna solutions for your application not all product offerings are equal. In addition, not all solutions will be suitable for your project.
A supplier with a range of many flavours of MIMO LTE antenna can greatly assist your quest for the best possible wireless deployment. This range should cover as a minimum blade antennas, low profile antennas, magnetic antennas and outdoor omni-directional and directional antennas.
A modular range of products allows the customer the choice to pick the correct product option. Take a low profile puck antenna for example, you may have the option of a MIMO LTE permanent mount puck antenna. This however might not quite meet your requirements, but the option of having such an antenna with an integrated WiFI element or an integrated GNSS element might be more suitable. Notwithstanding those options, it may be that you do not want to drill a hole in the skin of vehicle, cabinet or kiosk and a magnetic mount MIMO LTE antenna is preferable. In this case once again, the options of 2 x LTE, 2 x LTE + GNSS or 2 x LTE + WiFi are welcome to help you meet the requirements of your installation.
In terms outdoor MIMO antennas, a similar principle applies. Directional or omni-directional radiation patterns are important and how to mount the antenna, wall, pole or cabinet mount – a solution needs to be able to address these requirements. Also the possibility to marry these antennas with custom length low loss cables such as RF240 and RF400 rather that being offer a fixed length cable solution at 5M.
EAD is excellently placed to help you with this product options. Many of our antenna solutions are based on modular platforms meaning that we can mix and match radiating elements to deliver exactly the antenna our customers need. In addition, we have access to a broad portfolio of world-class products in our SAS product porfolio which augment and enhance our offerings. For one-off single unit requirements, many of our antennas can be purchased via our sister company’s webshop.

EAD has introduced new multi element puck antenna offering MIMO LTE and WiFi based on the popular CPx platform. The C2LW low profile puck antenna incorporates two 700-2700 MHz LTE elements and one WiFi element with a robust housing.
This new C2LW antenna augments the MIMO LTE range of low profile puck antennas to facilitate the addition of WiFi capabilities to a MIMO LTE antenna. This is very useful for transportation, logistical and telematics applications and well as wireless security deployments and charging station systems.
The CMO is a two element 700-2700 MHz low profile puck antenna. For small quantities, the CMO can be purchased via the Connex webshop.
The CMG is a MIMO LTE + GNSS low profile puck antenna.
The CLWG is another multi element puck antenna offering 1 x LTE, 1 x WiFi + GNSS.
EAD is pleased to introduce a 4 x 4 LTE MIMO antenna for external fixed and mobile applications. Based on the innovative LPO antenna, this new platform has four broadband 690-2960 MHz elements co-existing inside one low profile radome. An active GPS/GLONASS antenna element can also be configured to reside alongside the 4 LTE elements.
For applications requiring high speed LTE making use of 4 x 4 MIMO functionality, the LPO-4L offers a compact and robust solution with each antenna element fed by a separate cable.
The LPO-4L is one of a number of LPO antenna configurations available including the standard LPO (2 x LTE, 2 WiFi + GNSS) and LPO-D4547 with 2 x 450 MHz elements.
For more information and pricing on the LPO-4L antenna, please contact us or your local EAD distributor.
The LPO-4L antenna can also be used with RF240 low loss cables to extend the installation.
The standard LPO can be purchased from the Connex webshop.
