Interlocking modular antenna system for 5G
22 March 2017, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

The new antennas – including the Adaptrix CMM200.A, which features a patent-pending, modular interlocking system to help operators scale quickly to meet the speed and capacity demands of 5G – were demonstrated for the first time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

Wireless industry pundits have dubbed 2017 the year of 5G, as ultra-high-speed networks begin to move out of the proof of concept stage and into the field. Designed to support the growing demand from IoT devices and users for high-speed, low-latency connectivity for a growing multitude of use cases across industries, 5G networks need to be able to scale quickly to support demand, with the flexibility to accommodate different spectrum requirements and use cases as they emerge.

The new 5G antenna solutions from Taoglas include Adaptrix CMM200.A, a 5 – 6 GHz C-band massive MIMO array; Aurora CMM100.A, a 5 – 6 GHz C-band massive MIMO phased array; Pegasus CMM300.A, a 5 – 6 GHz C-band 2x8 slant polarised massive MIMO panel; and Sauron ELA100.A, a 77 GHz E-band lens array antenna.

The Adaptrix antenna is the first in a series of millimetre-wave antenna arrays from Taoglas that demonstrates the company’s patent-pending interlocking modular system. Dermot O’Shea, co-CEO of Taoglas, said, “This first-in-the-industry antenna system means that when you need to add capacity, you simply attach extra panels. You can build them up vertically or horizontally like Lego blocks. You don’t need to worry about spacing, alignment or positioning, it’s a fool-proof system to achieving optimal installation methods.”
