Taoglas Launches End-to-End Antenna Solutions for Mesh Networks
Taoglas Offers a Complete Mesh Network Antenna Solution That Can Be Tailored to Customer Needs
HANOVER, Germany --(Business Wire)-- Mar 02, 2010 Taoglas, the leading M2M antenna provider, (www.taoglas.com), today launched a full range of antennas required for companies who need to build a full mesh network. All mesh networks require three types of antennas: base station antennas, remote external antennas and remote internal antennas. Taoglas is the first company to provide a solution for all three antennas in multiple frequencies including cellular, Zigbee and ISM. All antennas can be customized or used off-the-shelf. These antennas will be showcased at the Taoglas booth C28, Hall 7 (Telematics) in the M2M Zone at CeBIT in Hanover.
Barracuda Base Station Antennas
The Barracuda range of base station antennas are an omni directional antenna that connect directly to mesh access points and telemetry units. They are available at 433Mhz, 868Mhz, 915Mhz, 2400Mhz and 5200MHz for operation in the main licence-free bands used for M2M applications. The Barracuda range is entirely customisable, and can be made in different frequencies, colours and shapes in order to match the access point box. Design options include a connector integrated into the base of the antenna so the antenna can be screwed directly to the access point, eliminating cable requirements and helping with waterproofing and secure connection for long term use.
Hercules Remote External Antennas
The Hercules range of external antennas has been upgraded to meet the demands of harsh mesh network requirements for remote monitoring, metering and M2M markets. Available in GPS, cellular, WiFi and Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) bands 433Mhz, 868Mhz, or 915Mhz versions, this range of antennas includes a thick thread and nut for a secure mounting solution. Taoglas also has the ability to customise cables and connectors including low-loss special cables with armoured options.
Included in the Hercules range of antennas are:
A.01 for GPS 2 stage for location based services,
A.03 for GPS 3 stage for long cable runs,
Range of Remote Internal Antennas
The loop, PCB and freedom range of off-the-shelf flexible circuit antennas are available for cellular bands GSM, CDMA, 3G, ISM and other licence free bands; 433MHz, 784Mhz, 868MHz, 915MHz, 2.4GHz, 5GHz. This unique series of internal M2M antennas is designed to give the largest omni-directional range of antennas for telemetry and remote monitoring.
The embedded series of antennas include;
