Wideband omnidirectional antenna

26 May 2021 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Taoglas’ newly launched wideband, omnidirectional antenna – the Taoglas Discone One – is expertly engineered for 5G/4G routers and devices. This new antenna is designed to cover all worldwide 5G and 4G bands, including all sub-6 GHz deployments across the 400 MHz to 6000 MHz spectrum.

The Discone boasts excellent efficiencies of over 50% across the entire spectrum and a high peak gain of up to 6,6 dBi, to deliver best-in-class throughput on all major cellular bands worldwide. It is innovatively designed to deliver reliability on new, dedicated mission-critical communications bands between 400 and 500 MHz. Additionally, it covers extended 4G, band 71 and all 5G NR sub-6 GHz bands while also covering 3G/2G bands to allow for fallback when 5G/4G isn’t available – keeping applications and devices connected when it’s most needed.

“It can be challenging to maintain high antenna efficiency over an extremely wide band from 400 MHz to 6 GHz and exhibit an omnidirectional radiation pattern,” explained Dave Ghilarducci, global vice president of engineering at Taoglas. “The DCN.01 features a smart discone antenna design to achieve a uniform omnidirectional radiation pattern especially on the azimuth (horizontal) plane, meeting the requirement for mission-critical and smart grid applications. This design methodology, in parallel with the lightweight, efficient and robust materials used, helped to achieve optimum antenna efficiency and gain across a wide range of frequencies covering different applications. By investing in the Discone antenna now, it means you’re future proofing your devices and applications with 5G and 4G connectivity, resulting in bigger savings down the line.”

The Discone cable type and length and connector types, are fully customisable and it comes packaged with a pole- and wall-mounting kit as standard for rugged, vandal-resistant installations.
