Long-Range LPWAN Enabled Applications Through Innovation in Antenna System Design
One of the most promising new technologies driving the IoT revolution is Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology. LPWAN provides a new alternative to traditional cellular/M2M communications, coming in both licensed frequency spectrum (cellular), and unlicensed frequency spectrum technology variants. Both licensed and unlicensed LPWAN technologies promise low-cost IoT devices with long battery life that can expand IoT use cases and enable IoT deployments on a much wider scale. There is no one size fits all connectivity solution for all wireless IoT applications, and many will utilize a mix of licensed and unlicensed technologies. Given the wide range of use cases IoT will need to address, diversity of solutions and technologies is a key requirement when considering an antenna solution provider.
Leveraging our existing footprint in embedded antenna solutions for the short-range IoT space, both in unlicensed (ISM) and licensed (cellular) frequency spectrum, we are taking a leading role in enabling the expansion of IoT into long-range LPWAN enabled applications through innovation in antenna system design. We have developed antenna solutions with optimal range and service coverage for LPWAN use case scenarios, including embedded, external (indoor) and outdoor antennas. We offer both off-the-shelf and custom integrated LPWAN antenna solutions in support of major U.S. carrier trials and commercial network deployments in the U.S. and internationally.
