SkyCross, an antenna solutions company, has announced that it has applied its Isolated Mode Antenna Technology (iMAT) to a new product line for access points and routers. Both commercial and enterprise networking base stations are configured today with multiple antennas. iMAT consolidates the performance benefits of multiple antennas into a single antenna to lower cost of ownership, simplify integration, and improve aesthetic designs without compromising performance.
The first antenna released in this product line covers 2.4 GHz and 5.1-5.9 GHz to support 801.11 a/b/g/n. iMAT is particularly advantageous for 802.11n, which requires MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) operation. Traditionally, this protocol requires device manufacturers to have two to four external antennas on an access point or router. By using an iMAT antenna, device manufacturers can quickly realise cost and integration savings, and end customers can easily see the reduction of antennas when selecting a product.
"iMAT is perfectly suited to free device manufacturers from the convention of using multiple antennas for access points and routers," said Joe Gifford, executive vice president of Business Development and Marketing at SkyCross. "This unique solution has attracted major OEMs and ODMs, and we are pleased to serve this market."
