Software-Defined Antenna Increases Throughput And Coverage

Taoglas, in partnership with Adant, unveils its Shift, a software-defined antenna system that changes the economics of next-generation wireless networks by extending coverage and increasing throughput by up to 100%. Using Adant’s advanced beam-steering technology, the Taoglas Shiftä antenna dynamically adapts its radiation pattern in real time to increase the link quality and deliver the best signal propagation and reception for mobile and stationary applications, both indoor and outdoor.

 

The Taoglas Shiftä antenna intelligently seeks out and finds the best signal on a regular basis, and then tunes the antenna in real time to achieve the highest throughput—reducing the need for redundant carriers to ensure strong coverage. The antenna and LTE module are combined in a single enclosure for fast solution deployment.

Other capabilities include:

  • Directional beams help mitigate interference from other co-located users
  • High gain helps increase signal-to-noise ratio, improving link reliability in desired direction, and extending coverage
  • Use of spatial multiplexing in 2X2 MIMO linearly increases throughput by switching to most optimal antenna configuration
  • Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS) >3 dB is achieved with respect to a static omnidirectional antenna system of comparable size
