Gar and Barracuda - 3G / 4G / ISM / CBRS / Wi-Fi / GNSS Antennas

Overview

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

Gar (VFP69383B22JN) is a 5-port antenna that comes configured for 2-port MIMO operation over the 3G/4G/ISM/CBRS bands, and 2-port MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands. The additional 5th port provides an active antenna for enabling GNSS global navigation services (which includes GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, and other regional systems).

Barracuda (VFH69383B23JW) is a 6-port antenna has the same form factor and capabilities as Gar, but with an additional 3rd port for MIMO operation over the low/high frequency Wi-Fi bands.

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

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