With world-class engineering and RF expertise, the Wireless Systems division continues to develop technologies and capabilities that make a wirelessly connected world possible. Specifically for this event, Laird’s Infrastructure Antenna Solutions group will showcase their new Elastomer Spring for whip antennas and a new UHF Wideband Whip Antenna.
The Elastomer Spring is made of EPDM rubber that provides increased flexibility and shape retention while reducing wind and system noise as compared to a stainless steel spring. This new spring is interchangeable with existing stainless steel springs. The UHF Wideband Antenna is a NMO whip style antenna that covers full UHF band and provides 2dBi of gain. The company will also be showing two prototype Shark Fin antennas. The first features internal UHF, Wi-Fi, GPS with external VHF while the second features internal LTE/EVDO, Wi-Fi, GPS with external UHF or VHF.
“As one of the key shows for the public safety industry, IWCE presents an excellent opportunity for Laird to showcase our capabilities,” said Rob Antonio, Laird Technologies Product Manager. “Laird is an industry leader in providing mobile radio antenna solutions that are reliable and ensure maximum performance for situations where it matters most.”
IWCE hosts over 7,500 technology buyers and industry professionals from government, public safety, transportation utilities and other enterprises to see the latest effective and efficient communications systems. The exhibition showcases the hardware, applications, interoperability and integration that attendees need to communicate reliably and dependably anytime, anywhere.
