Linx Technologies, a Merlin, OR based developer and manufacturer of antennas and connectors, is pleased to introduce two new compact whip-style antennas for the growing 450 MHz band cellular equipment market. The ANT-450-RHR-SMA and ANT-450-RHS-SMA antennas provide right-angle and straight antenna versions for cellular and cellular IoT (Internet of Things) applications in the 450 MHz to 470 MHz range, including LTE bands 72, 73, and 31.
The low frequency of the 450 MHz spectrum provides for robust connectivity enabling broad coverage and deeper signa penetration through walls and other hard-to-reach areas. These characteristics make the 450 MHz band well suited for LTE-M, NB-IoT, and smart devices that require reliable communication.
“The 450 MHz LTE band provides an excellent opportunity for long-range performance for smart grid deployment or penetration of interferers in challenging environments like smart metering applications. Already a leader in 5G at 600 MHz (band n71), Linx recognizes the potential at 450 MHz and is providing antennas to serve IoT devices and infrastructure equipment alike,” said Linx CEO, Tolga Latif.
The RHR and RHS 450 LTE antennas are available now via Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks. For more information about the antennas, please visit the product pages:
