MTI Wireless Edge LTD. Deploys 5G Fronthaul Patented E Band 38 dBi Flat Antenna
We are proud to announce the first and only commercially available ETSI Class 3 and FCC Flat E Band 38 dBi Antenna. This patented antenna was developed in cooperation with our customers to provide a small form factor solution for 5G fronthaul, which complies with the international standards.
The antenna is part of MTI’s unique and patented Flat E Band antenna family, supplementing the existing Flat 43 dBi ETSI Class 3 and FCC compliant antenna.
Specifically following the FCC proposal to lower the minimum antenna gain in E-band from 43 dBi to 38 dBi, the embedded antenna offers an ideal solution for urban 5G fronthaul providing the smallest possible footprint. . This solution will reduce costs, facilitate network densification, and help support the provision of backhaul for emerging 5G services.
In a very short time hundreds of this innovative antenna have been integrated and deployed in new customer installations.
Israel Saraf MTI’s CTO and Chief Antenna Engineer commented “Developing a flat E Band antenna was a challenge, especially in such a small factor, I am glad we were able to rise to the task and in addition utilize a unique, high accuracy, plastic molding and metallic coating production technology, to provide a patented antenna complying both with ETSI Class 3 and FCC regulations while maintaining low production costs which have brought the antenna to a mass market maturity stage”.
