U.S. company Laird Connectivity has recently announced its 5G CFD Distributed Antenna System (DAS) antenna series.
The firm noted that the new CFD 5G series delivers optimized performance in 698-960, 1350-1550, 1690-4200, and 5150-7125 MHz with a VSWR rating of <1.7:1.
The antennas are PIM rated up to 4.2 GHz, offering a low average PIM value of -162 dBc and 25 dB isolation. The antennas also utilize two-port MIMO technology that enhances multipath mitigation to ensure a strong and reliable connection, the company said.
The antennas can be utilized in many applications from commercial in-building cellular to public safety, including First Responder/FirstNet. The antenna coverage includes popular and emerging 4G/5G, CBRS/C-Band, LAA, and LTE-U frequencies, making it a diverse and multi-application antenna series, Laird Connectivity said.
The CFD 5G antenna is an ultra-low-profile antenna that is only 7.6 mm thick. With a variety of mounting options for hard and tiled ceilings, they offer an aesthetically solution in a small form factor with maximum mounting flexibility, the firm added.
Paul Fadlovich, director of product management for antennas at Laird Connectivity, said: “I am very pleased Laird Connectivity is adding yet another product to our broad portfolio that demonstrates the company as a leader in emerging technologies like 5G. Our aim is always to provide industry-leading technologies with extremely high quality and performance at an affordable price. The CFD 5G antenna series continues this trend.”
CFD 5G series antennas are supplied with a QR code that reveals the antennas PIM and VSWR values as well as angle marking on the antenna’s radome for fast installation and optimized coverage.
