Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a standard for wireless broadband communication for mobile devices and data terminals, based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA technologies. It increases the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements.
Omnidirectional and directional LTE antenna
The directionality of the antenna is presented by a directional (radiation) diagram. The radiation diagram is really three-dimensional, but in practice it is represented in most cases by a 2D spatial section in the vertical or horizontal plane. From this diagram, a very important parameter called the antenna radiation angle is determined. It is the angle of the radiation maximum, which is defined by two values, which correspond to a decrease of the maximum field strength by 3 dB.
LTE is commonly known as a 4G network, although it does not meet the parameters of 4G. Technologically, it still falls into the older network. 4G networks are marked LTE Advanced. For practical use, however, we can choose from the category of LTE Antennas or 4G Antennas.
In the Czech Republic, bands 1, 3, 7, 8 and 20 are allocated for LTE networks and LTE antennas from our portfolio are tuned to receive and transmit signals on the frequencies of these bands, namely 2100, 1800, 2600, 900 and 800 MHz.
LTE antennas are designed to receive LTE signals. LTE antennas are suitable for modems and routers. LTE antennas have multiple types of connectors and the customer can choose the type and length of the cable. LTE Antenna attachment can be magnetic, mounting, adhesive or soldered.
