Fairview Microwave Inc., an Infinite Electronics brand, has just released a new series of 5G outdoor-rated omnidirectional antennas that cover 4G, 5G, LTE and CBRS bands. These small form factor omni antennas are the perfect product when broad coverage is required but traditional base station antennas are too bulky or expensive. They support 6, 7, 8 and 10 dBi gain and are also offered with fiberglass radomes (PRO series).

The new 5G omni antennas from Fairview offer range extension and simple deployment to build out WLAN and cellular communications networks as well as private networks. They also include heavy-duty steel mast mounting brackets for rapid deployment and feature low-cost polycarbonate or ABS options. Rugged polycarbonate and fiberglass radomes withstand extreme weather and are rated to over 120 mph wind loading.

These collinear omnidirectional antennas feature Type-N connectors and are suitable for SISO or MIMO operation. Additionally, models that support 2×2 and 4×4 MIMO configurations ensure double and quadruple data speeds in comparison to single-input antennas.

“We’ve designed our new line of 5G omni antennas to cover all of your wireless networking needs. This includes broad coverage for rural areas and other areas that are typically difficult to cover. Not only are they technically superior to traditional base station antennas, they’re also economical and highly reliable,” said Kevin Hietpas, Antenna Product Line Manager.

For example, the FM51OM1038 for 5G/LTE outdoor applications uses a single multi-band design omni directional omni vertical antenna for a wide array of telecommunication applications where wide coverage instead of using separate antennas. Covering 698 MHz to 2.7 GHz, with an N-type female connector, the antenna is ideal for LPWAN/IoT/M2M, CDMA, LTE, 5G applications including NB-IOT, LTE-M, and LoRA.

With an impedance of 50 Ohms and maximum input power of 100 W, the FM51OM1038 omni vertical antenna is well suited for point to multipoint use in large open areas such as base station installations or large campuses.

The new 5G outdoor omnidirectional products are in-stock and available for same-day shipping.
