Dual-Band Antenna Ideal for WLAN and 4.9 GHz Public Safety Applications

St. Louis, Missouri, USA – September 14, 2010 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its new TRA(B)24/49003(P) Phantom® dual-band antenna.

The patented TRA(B)24/49003(P) Phantom® dual-band antenna operates simultaneously in the 2.4 GHz and 4.9 GHz frequency bands and features both vertical (VPOL) and horizontal polarization (HPOL). This gives the antenna diversity, frequency agility, low visibility, wide bandwidth, and a low angle radiation pattern that is superior to traditional gain antennas in most applications.

“The cross-polarization design of the TRA(B)24/49003(P) Phantom® dual-band antenna has no equal with true field diversity,” said Robert Antonio, Laird Technologies LMR Antennas Product Manager. “Its patented dual-polarization provides unsurpassed performance, ensuring uninterrupted transmissions in urban canyons and rural drop-off areas. It is an extremely tough antenna for outdoor or indoor applications, and is perfect for the growing 4.9 GHz wireless broadband market.”

An industry standard NMO mounting socket that mates with all Laird Technologies’ magnetic, trunk lid, and hole mounts is included. A threaded permanent stud mount model is also available for vandal-resistant mounting on brackets, panels, ceilings or any other kind of housing.

The TRA(B)24/49003(P) is an industry standard vehicular cellular antenna solution for public safety, transportation, utility, military mobile, and fixed radio applications. For more information, please logon to
