MIMO antenna targets high data capacity stadiums

Galtronics has has unveiled its newest EXTENT D5778i 60/60° MIMO panel antenna, designed for use in high-capacity venues such as stadiums, arenas, speedways or campuses where excellent wireless coverage is desired.

The EXTENT antenna line consists of outdoor DAS and Stadium antenna solutions and offers high density venue owners options including the EXTENT D5501i 30/60° and EXTENT D5777i 30/30° beam width antennas as well as the new D5778i 60/60° antenna.

Coupled with our Pear Product line for in-building wireless DAS networks it creates a full and complete product portfolio for high capacity venues as well as in-building DAS.

“With this 60/60 high capacity ‘Galtronics technology inside’ antenna product we reached a significant milestone, completing our high capacity venue product portfolio for DAS market as it exists today,” said Ephraim Ulmer, President and CEO of Galtronics. “We will continue to innovate in this fast moving wireless space, and we are working closely with our key customers on the next generation of products to further enhance high density and large venue wireless communications.”

The new antenna provides precise, consistent and fast roll-off patterns for a clear-cut footprint and low interference. It handles up to 250–watt input power and is optimized for multi-carrier systems.

It covers a particularly broad frequency range of 698-960/1710-2700 MHz, making it an attractive and future-proof choice for wireless network deployment.

Galtronics tests all covered spectrum bands for Passive Intermodulation (PIM) to ensure high quality and performance.

“Galtronics engineers put particular effort into ensuring that the D5778i 60/60° antenna’s radome design will blend seamlessly into a stadium environment,” said Ben Bar, Galtronics’ Executive VP Sales and Marketing.

In addition, a mounting bracket for the antenna allows both wall and pole mounting and fine-tuning of the antenna’s tilt and alignment in both the horizontal and vertical planes.

Key features:

  • Low VSWR of <1.7:1

  • High Gain of up to 9 dBi

  • PIM certification guaranteed to be less than -150 dBc at 2x43 dbm

  • Maximum input power per port of 250 watts

The antenna will be available for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2014.
