L-com announced that it will support the latest IEEE wireless standard 802.11ac with a series of indoor ceiling mount and outdoor panel style Wi-Fi antennas that feature 2.4-5.8 GHz operation. 802.11ac offers up to 1 Gbps wireless transmissions and the ability to support up to eight MIMO spatial streams as well as 80 MHz channel bandwidth.

The HG2458-4SDC-6 series ceiling mount 802.11ac MIMO antennas feature 4 dBi of gain and six independent spatially diverse antennas in a single package. Three are designed to operate at 2.4 GHz and three are designed to operate at 4.9 to 5.8 GHz. The HG2458-3SDC-3 series ceiling mount antennas feature spatial diversity between three independent/integral antenna ports providing better wireless reception in areas susceptible to the affects of multi-path interference.
