Linx Expands Monopole Whip Antenna Offering For FirstNet Public Safety and LPWAN

Linx Technologies, an Oregon-based developer and manufacturer of antennas, has expanded its CW Series and PW Series single-band monopole whip antenna lines to support low power, wide area (LPWA) applications for cellular IoT (LTE-M, NB-IoT), LoRaWAN and SIGFOX as well as cellular public safety applications in LTE Band 14, according to a recent release.

Linx single-band monopole antennas are designed to provide better performance in the targeted frequency band while costing less. CW Series antennas mount with an SMA or reverse polarity SMA connector while the PW Series antenna are cabled panel-mount solutions with either a U.FL/MHF connector or plain wire for soldering to a printed circuit board. Both antenna series are weather resistant and offer the potential for IP-rated solutions.

The new CW Series and PW Series antennas target cellular LTE Bands 5, 8, 13, 14, 20 and 28, and LoRaWAN CN470-510 for use in China. LTE Band 14 is designated for FirstNet public safety applications in the United States. FirstNet is U.S. federal entity that ensures the building, deployment and operation of the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety and administers the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network being developed by AT&T. In addition to the new LTE Band 14 antenna, the Band 28 CW Series and PW Series antennas also perform very well in Band 14 with good performance in other typical AT&T frequency bands, providing a public safety antenna option with capability to operate elsewhere on the AT&T network.

“We are excited to offer industry-first single-band external antennas for LTE-M and NB-IoT applications including LTE band 13 for Verizon NB-IoT solutions and European NB-IoT on LTE Band 8,” said Tolga Latif, President and CEO, Linx Technologies, “and because our CW and PW Series antennas have been used in harsh environments and in public safety applications in ISM bands for years we are also very pleased to offer an LTE band 14 antenna for FirstNet public safety applications.”

CW Series and PW Series antennas are available today via Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks.
