In a move to accelerate the launch of 5G wireless communications networks around the world, Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT and M2M antenna and RF solutions, unveiled its new series of 5G massive MIMO antenna arrays, designed to allow customers to provide the fastest and best user experiences for the next generation of wireless communications. The new antennas — including the Adaptrix CMM200.A, which features a patent-pending, modular interlocking system to help operators scale quickly to meet the speed and capacity demands of 5G — were demonstrated at Embedded World fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
Wireless industry pundits have dubbed 2017 the year of 5G, as ultra-high-speed networks begin to move out of the proof of concept stage and into the field. Designed to support the growing demand from IoT devices and users for high-speed, low-latency connectivity for a growing multitude of use cases across industries, 5G networks need to be able to scale quickly to support demand, with the flexibility to accommodate different spectrum requirements and use cases as they emerge.
5G demands best-in-class solutions from a quality and performance perspective, and antennas are the critical link. The 5G communications hardware market needs precision, quality and even more engineering support than ever before. Like in the race to 4G LTE, Taoglas is the first antenna vendor on the device side to provide 5G antenna solutions and options.
