Complete Cellular & LTE Data Communication From a Single Antenna

Patent Pending Design Optimizes Performance Inside a Single Low-Profile Housing

October 6th, 2014 – Hotels, airports, warehouses, offices – a clean and reliable cellular or wireless network signal is becoming a requirement in virtually every location of our daily lives. Designing a single antenna housing which combines cellular, LTE, and wireless network capabilities with superior performance across all frequency bands means companies can have the connectivity they need while saving valuable space indoors. That’s why Laird, a global leader in the design and supply of performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless systems, announces a patent pending for their CMD Family of 2-port MIMO multi-band ceiling mounted omnidirectional antennas.

The CMD family of Antennas by Laird features complete 3G/ 4G cellular and LTE data communications in a single antenna. The low profile housing is aesthetically neutral, while the components inside are specifically shaped to provide optimal performance from a ceiling mount location. The Antennas mount directly and easily to ceiling tiles and are also available with a wide variety of cable and connector options to maximize compatibility.

This unique design is built to offer superior performance across a wide bandwidth including 700/800/900/1800/1900/UMTS/2300/2400/2500. The CMD family of antennas are only available from Laird or an authorized Laird distributor.
