Antenna Parameters & Performance

At Maxtena, we recognize the critical importance of antenna parameters in optimizing performance and reliability. One key parameter is isolation, which plays a crucial role in minimizing interference between LTE and adjacent RF bands, such as GNSS, WiFi, Iridium, and ISM. Other important parameters include antenna gain and efficiency, radiation pattern, polarization, frequency bandwidth, VSWR and angle of coverage.

  • Isolation: our LTE antennas feature high levels of isolation, exceeding 25 dB to 30 dB, to minimize interference between antenna elements and adjacent frequency bands. This ensures robust signal integrity and maximizes system performance.
  • Antenna Gain: with antenna gains ranging mostly from 2 dBi to 5 dBi and sometimes even higher, our LTE antennas provide increased signal strength, extended coverage, and improved data rates, ensuring stable connectivity in diverse environments.
  • Efficiency: Our LTE antennas boast exceptional efficiency values exceeding 50% to 60%, translating into minimized power losses, enhanced battery life and maximizing spectral usage.
  • Radiation Pattern: our LTE antennas offer balanced azimuthal and elevation coverage, optimizing signal distribution and ensuring efficient use of transmitted power. In most cases, radiation pattern is omnidirectional, with exceptions when there is a need for more directional beams.
  • VSWR: our LTE antennas exhibit low VSWR values below 1.5:1 or 2:1, ensuring excellent impedance matching and minimal signal loss for optimal power transfer and signal reliability.
  • Polarization: designed for compatibility with linear polarization, our LTE antennas feature vertical polarization as standard, maximizing signal strength and minimizing polarization mismatch.
  • Frequency Bandwidth: covering the LTE spectrum from 698 MHz to 2700 MHz and being compatible with new 5G network from 600 MHz to 6 GHz, our antennas offer wide frequency bandwidths, ensuring compatibility with global network deployments and future-proof connectivity.
  • Angle of Coverage: with angle of coverage ranging from 60° above, our LTE antennas provide exceptional signal coverage, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for users.

From initial design concept to final product delivery, we adhere to the highest standards of quality assurance to ensure that every produced antenna exceeds industry benchmarks for performance, reliability, and durability. Our manufacturing facilities are certified to ISO 9001, ensuring that every aspect of our production process meets the highest quality standards.
