March 15, 2017 - L-com Global Connectivity, a manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced that it has released a series of dual-band, dual-polarized 2x2 MIMO antennas for use in MIMO/802.11ac devices.
L-com’s DPU2-series antennas are dual-band, outdoor, Omni-directional antennas with dual-polarization that permits them to operate in both vertical and horizontal polarizations. One of these antennas can do the same work as two antennas by simultaneously transmitting data on one polarization while receiving data on the other polarization. These antennas also increase Wi-Fi data speed by allowing the attenuation of unwanted signals from adjacent channels and/or co-located equipment, which improves RF performance and increases data speed.
DPU2-series antennas feature both 2.4/5 GHz horizontally and vertically polarized antennas in one radome. They deliver 360-degree 302.11ac coverage while decreasing performance issues from RF interference. These antennas are designed for enabling multi-stream communications on IEEE 802.11n/ac networks. Supported MIMO types include 1x2 systems for 802.11a/g/n protocols and 2x2 systems for 802.11ac protocols.
L-com's DPU2-series antennas have industrial-grade construction and are available in 6 dBi, 9 dBi and 11 dBi versions. A UV-resistant, PVC radome helps ensure long-term, reliable operation in all weather conditions. A heavy duty extruded aluminum base/mount allows the antenna to be mounted to masts up to 3.7 inches in diameter.
