Portage, MI (PressExposure) April 09, 2008 -- Portage, MI, Feb 08,2008--Advanced Antenna, Inc., a manufacturer of wireless antennas for broadband and cellular applications, announced today that its WiMax solution for 3.5 to 3.65 GHz passed field testing at customer sites in Canada and Michigan.
Advanced Antenna, Inc. introduced an innovative wideband 3.4 to 3.7 GHz feed last year for use with their ten different grid antennas. This allows them to offer cost-effective range of performance options with excellent wind loading for WiMax applications.
"In 2006 we began development of this feed," said Tom Mansfield, Advanced Antenna, Inc. Development Engineer. "We knew WiMax was coming at these frequencies, so our goal was to do a single feed that would perform consistently across the 3.4 to 3.7 GHz range."
The feed was tested in the field by 20/20 Communications of Ann Arbor, Michigan in December 2007. "We tested the feed with their 32 inch round grid rated at 25 dBi gain," stated Jon Zeeff, 20/20's Chief Network Engineer. "The antenna has the performance needed for our rural broadband deployments. We just purchased eight more for further testing and will try their smaller grids for closer locations."
Advanced Antenna, Inc., based in Portage, Michigan, also has a wideband feed from 2.1 to 2.7 GHz that easily handles 2.5 GHz WiMax, as well as traditional 2.4 GHz applications. They also offer antennas for applications from 900 MHz to 5.8 GHz, and are the leading manufacturer of third party antennas for Motorola Canopy at 2.4, 4.9 and 5.7 GHz.
