Airgain’s OptumX antenna is described as the first ‘shot-glass’ MIMO LTE antenna of its kind. In a small form-factor, commonly referred to as a ‘shot-glass’ or ‘salt and pepper shaker’ antenna, the OptumX utilizes patent pending technology to enable dual MIMO antennas to operate in very close proximity within a single enclosure, overcoming key technical hurdles including MIMO antenna isolation.
The OptumX is tailored to the needs of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications with often restricted exterior mounting options and a need to keep installation costs to a minimum. IIoT and M2M solutions have previously been required to choose between the increased cost of using two separate antennas, or to use large and often unsightly antennas designed for different uses.
As a shock-resistant, low-profile antenna with a smaller footprint and bolt-mount base, the OptumX can be ordered in either black or white and will be available in November. For more details, visit Airgain.
