Utilities customers. For example, advanced smart grids utilizing our
antenna could reduce outages and efficiently manage alternative energy
sources,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, PCTEL’s Chief Operating Officer. “The
antenna’s ultra-broadband technology also supports LTE-Advanced carrier
aggregation and delivers superior 4×4 MIMO performance for asset
management, video communications, and other applications that require
high data capacity,” added Bharadwaj.

This is the latest in PCTEL’s field-proven BOA antenna series, deployed
in a variety of fixed IIoT applications around the world. The new
antenna features:

  • Multiple network compatibility
  • Four (4) broadband ports supporting LTE, LTE-Advanced, LTE-M, NB-IoT,
    2G/3G cellular, Wi-Fi, and private wireless technologies
  • One (1) GPS/GLONASS port with PCTEL’s unique high rejection GNSS
    technology for network timing and tracking

PCTEL will display its new LTE multiband antenna June 19th and 20th at
