Fewer antennas provide reliable coverage while minimizing installation all from compact form factor

Global technology leader Laird (LRD: London) announces today that its Infrastructure Antenna Solutions were chosen to provide an in-building wireless reception solution for Terminal One of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Laird’s low passive intermodulation (or PIM) ceiling mount and low PIM pole mount panel antennas offer the reliable and robust cellular signals and mobile data which are essential to the success of a modern airport. More and more travelers rely on mobile phones and cellular data while inside airports. Even the businesses serving those travelers are also using wireless data more than ever before.

As one of the 15 busiest airports in the world, Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport understands the challenge and appreciates the value of providing reliable wireless reception for businesses and passengers. When the Airport Authority decided to expand the airports capacity to 15 million passengers per year, designers knew increasing cellular and wireless data capacity for those travelers was essential to attract the best businesses and maintain a high quality passenger experience.

Because of their industry leading performance and design, Laird’s multi-port CMD and PAS antennas were chosen to build the wireless network inside the Terminal One passenger terminal that enables high performance 3G / 4G and LTE coverage in all high density public hallways and corridors.

"Multi-port functionality means fewer antennas are needed to provide excellent coverage and throughput because of their ability to transmit and receive cellular and data signals at the same time from a single, low-profile design,” explains Senior Vice President of Infrastructure Antenna Solutions for Laird, Monty Rohde. "This improves the ease of installation while the low profile design blends into the architecture of the building to be more visually appealing."

Rohde adds, “We are proud to be selected as a trusted partner to provide an enhanced wireless reception solution used in such a communication critical public venue as Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Enabling reliable connectivity in a high traffic, public transportation environment requires the performance engineered reception products and coverage capabilities, which Laird antennas are designed to offer.”
