Barracuda up to 6-Port UHF /3G / 4G / 5G / ISM / CBRS / WiFi / GNSS Vehicle Antennas

Overview

The Barracuda low-profile multiport/multiband antennas provide an excellent solution for Public Safety, Transportation and Aftermarket Fleet applications. 

Barracuda is a 6-port antenna that comes configured for 2-port MIMO operation over the 3G/4G/5G/ISM/CBRS bands, and 3-port MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands. The additional 6th port provides an active antenna for enabling GNSS global navigation services (which includes GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, and other regional systems).

NEW Barracuda (VFH69383B22JU) UHF version also supports 380-520 MHz.

The Barracuda antenna is available in multiple variants with different subsets of frequency support:

  • VFH69383x22JU - 6 Port (1 UHF, 2 Cellular, 2 Wi-Fi, 1 GNSS)
  • VFH69383x23JW - 6 Port (2 Cellular, 3 Wi-Fi, 1 GNSS)
  • VFQ69383x2NJU - 4 Port (1 UHF, 2 Cellular, 1 GNSS)
  • VFQ69383B11JU - 4 Port (1 UHF, 1 Cellular, 1 Wi-Fi, 1 GNSS)

Key Features include:

  • 5G Ready
  • Configured for FirstNet MIMO operation
  • Single-hole mounting reduces vehicle damage and installation costs
  • Attractive IP67 low profile aerodynamic housing
  • Multiband/MIMO operation with GNSS navigation

Barracuda antennas not only increase signal reliability and data throughput but enable the possibility for vehicles to function as communication hubs. They are 5G ready, aerodynamic, and ruggedly reliable, and are the only vehicular antennas in the industry to come with a 5-year product warranty.

Gar 5-port Vehicle Antenna

The Gar 5-port Antenna is nearly identical to the Barracuda, however it comes standard with 2-port MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands instead of 3 ports to offer a cost advantage.
