Fairview Microwave releases 5G outdoor-rated omnidirectional antennas

Fairview have designed a line of 5G omni antennas designed for high performance in extreme weather and rural areas for broad coverage of wireless networking needs.

Fairview Microwave, a provider of on-demand RF, microwave and millimetre wave components, said that the new series of 5G outdoor-rated omnidirectional antennas covers 4G, 5G, LTE and CBRS bands.

These small form factor omni antennas have been designed for when broad coverage is required but traditional base station antennas are too bulky or expensive. They support 6, 7, 8 and 10 dBi gain and are also offered with fiberglass radomes (PRO series).

Fairview’s 5G omni antennas offer range extension and simple deployment to build out WLAN and cellular communications networks as well as private networks. They also include heavy-duty steel mast mounting brackets for rapid deployment and feature low-cost polycarbonate or ABS options. The antennas’ rugged polycarbonate and fiberglass radomes withstand extreme weather and are rated to over 120 mph wind loading.

These collinear omnidirectional antennas feature Type-N connectors and are suitable for SISO or MIMO operation. Additionally, models that support 2x2 and 4x4 MIMO configurations ensure double and quadruple data speeds in comparison to single-input antennas
