Fairview Microwave Inc. has released a new series of 5G outdoor-rated omnidirectional antennas that cover 4G, 5G, LTE and CBRS bands.

These small form factor omni antennas are designed for applications that require broad coverage 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). 

The company’s new 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 can 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 2×2 and 4×4 MIMO configurations ensure double and quadruple data speeds in comparison to single-input antennas.

“We’ve designed our new line of 5G omni antennas to cover all of your wireless networking needs. This includes broad coverage for rural areas and other areas that are typically difficult to cover,” said Kevin Hietpas, Antenna Product Line Manager. “Not only are they technically superior to traditional base station antennas, they’re also economical and highly reliable.”
