Frost & Sullivan presented Antenna Company with its Technology Innovation Award for Advanced Antennas for Wireless Communications. Frost & Sullivan noted that the rollout of new wireless standards is driving an increase in the number of multi-band antennas per system, while product form factors continue to shrink.
The analyst firm concluded that these trends require a new approach in antenna technology to deliver the best performance and end-user experience.
With the award, Frost & Sullivan recognised Antenna Company’s patented SuperShape technology, which enables antenna systems to overcome the challenges associated with integration of multiple antennas into consumer and enterprise applications. SuperShape technology combines 2D and 3D optimisation of antenna geometries with engineered polymer materials to create Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) systems with excellent efficiency, isolation and coverage.
“Antenna Company is honoured to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan,” said company CEO, David Favreau. “The award recognises the scalability of SuperShape technology across multiple applications where data throughput, extended coverage, or streaming video performance is critical.”
Antenna Company is working with customers to integrate its technology into products such as WiFi routers, set-top boxes, home gateways, notebook PCs, outdoor access points and telematics devices.
“Antenna Company has successfully demonstrated the benefits of its technology for WiFi and GPS applications,” said Jabez Mendelson, Senior Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “In addition to those examples, we see strong potential for the application of Antenna Company’s technology in the emerging 5G market to help improve network capacity and coverage.”
