The Storm MA412 LTE MIMO antenna is a low profile, heavy-duty, fully IP67 waterproof external M2M antenna for use in worldwide telematics applications which require best in class LTE performance. At only 31 mm high, the Storm is the world’s lowest profile global telematics antenna solution. It delivers powerful worldwide 4G LTE MIMO antenna technology while also covering the 3G and 2G bands.
While technically providing some operation on 5G 3.5 GHz bands, at worse than 20% efficiency the antenna may result in substantial performance loss if used on 5G.
LTE 4G applications demand high speed data uplink and downlink. High efficiency and high gain MIMO antennas are necessary to achieve the required signal to noise ratio and throughput required to solve these challenges. Taoglas also takes care to have high isolation between the two MIMO antennas to prevent self-interference. The MA412 does not require a ground plane. Low loss cables are used to keep efficiency high over long cable lengths. In contrast, smaller MIMO antennas with poorer quality thinner cables will have much reduced efficiency and isolation, which would lead to a large drop in system throughput or drops, and may indeed not make a system connection at all.
