Ventev Wireless Infrastructure, a division of Tessco Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: TESS), has added three new TerraWave-brand LTE-band mobile antennas, designed to ensure superior cellular connectivity even in the most remote locations. The company says new mobile antennas support 3G/LTE, SCADA, wireless backhaul and broadband communications applications that are critical for applications such as asset tracking/RFID and remote monitoring (M2M), fleet management and public safety in the energy (utility, oil and gas), industrial, warehouse and transportation sectors.

The new products, according to the company, include the following:

3G/LTE Terminal Omni Antenna -- This antenna (TESSCO No. 515219) is designed for use in environments where robust cellular connectivity is needed for data/voice/video, SCADA/telemetry and process control applications. The terminal omni antenna supports a broad range of 3G/LTE modems and terminals, while eliminating cable loss and performance variations associated with antennas integrated with extension cables. It includes a hinged right-angle SMA connector that allows flexibility to support various connector positions.

3G/LTE Outdoor Omni Antenna -- This antenna (TESSCO No. 566090) is designed for remote monitoring in the oil and gas industry and also for smart-grid and utility meters. This robust antenna can withstand the elements while consistently providing outstanding 3G/LTE omnidirectional coverage and connectivity. The 698-960/1710-2170 MHz Wi-Fi 2/4 dBi omni antenna has N-style plug connectors and is designed for data acquisition over long distances.

3G/LTE/Wi-Fi/GPS Omnidirectional Antenna -- Designed for M2M communications such as tracking assets in the manufacturing and warehouse industries, and remote monitoring in the oil and gas/utilities industries, this antenna (TESSCO No. 512336) is also used in public safety for broadband communications and fleet management. This omnidirectional antenna especially space-constrained or budget-conscious users because it provides multi-frequency coverage in a small form factor. It includes three 13” pigtails; one dedicated to GPS for communicating location; one to the Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz frequency band for communications with local terminals and radios; and one to the LTE frequency bands for backhaul to the network.

“Our new TerraWave mobile antennas expand Ventev’s comprehensive portfolio of integrated LTE solutions for all applications, as well as power management, RF management, cable routing, and environmental and security protection,” comments Jeff Lime, vice president of Ventev. “No matter how remote, we’ve got you covered.”

The new antennas are compatible with industry-leading radios from manufacturers including GE, Sierra Wireless, DragonWave and FreeWave. For detailed product information, visit
