MIMO Antennas Take 5G On The Road

(Laird Connectivity)

Laird Connectivity expands its vehicular antenna portfolio for public safety, FirstNet, and aftermarket fleet applications via two low profile, MIMO vehicular antennas with multiband operation and GNSS navigation. The Gar (VFP69383B22JN) has five ports and comes configured for 2-port MIMO operation over the 3G/4G/ISM/CBRS bands, and 2-port MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands. The additional 5th port provides an active antenna for enabling GNSS global navigation services.  

The Barracuda (VFH69383B23JW) has the same form factor and capabilities as Gar but adds a 3rd port for MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands, with the 6th port providing GNSS services. Both antennas are configured for FirstNet MIMO operation, allow for single-hole mounting, and feature IP67-rated, aerodynamic housings for reliable operation in harsh environments. Single-hole mounting reduces the risk of vehicle damage while lowering installation costs.
