PCTEL Unveils GPS/GLONASS High Rejection Time Sync Antennas

August 20, 2014

Antennas Offer Reliable Network Timing on Multiple GNSS Frequencies

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in performance critical telecom solutions, announced today its new series of GPS/GLONASS High Rejection Time Sync antennas. These new antennas provide great reception on both GPS and GLONASS frequencies for network time synchronization. Their high rejection design makes them ideal for small cells and other LTE base stations, where cellular network signals might otherwise interfere with the acquisition of critical network timing information.

“Wireless carriers are rapidly increasing the number of small cell installations to address network capacity concerns,” said Jeff Miller, President of PCTEL Connected Solutions. “PCTEL’s new high rejection GPS/GLONASS antennas address a crucial need for accurate network timing in an increasingly noisy RF environment,” added Miller.

These new multi-GNSS antennas use advanced filter technology that allows the same antenna to cover both GPS L1 and GLONASS L1 frequencies while maintaining PCTEL’s industry-leading high rejection performance. Their robust IP67-compliant design provides durability for long-term deployments. Their low noise factor means they can be installed adjacent to low-power communications antennas, such as those used on small cell installations. The antennas are available in three versions for different applications, including N-male bottom feed for direct mounting on small cells (8171D-HR-NDH-W).
