Galtronics Releases Ultra-Broadband Antenna for Public Safety, Cellular Frequencies

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – May 20, 2013 – Galtronics Corporation Ltd. announced today the availability of its latest ultra-broadband in-building antenna, PEAR™ S5491i, offering simultaneous coverage for TETRA, cellular, GSM850, PCS and AWS bands. At 380-6000 MHz, the ultra-wideband frequency range supports public safety and cellular networks on the same antenna. The announcement was made this week in advance of CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The small size of the antenna (13.2 inches diameter x 4.8 inches height, two inches smaller in height than other models on the market) makes it uniquely suited for cellular projects that cover public safety [TETRA] frequencies. Its size and adjustable mounting options, including below, through and above the ceiling, minimize visibility of the antenna within a building. Further, S5491i looks identical to other Galtronics PEAR antennas for cellular-only coverage, enabling a consistent look for multiple antennas across the deployment.

The S5491i quad-band antenna offers superior omni performance with a positive gain at 380 MHz (0-1.5dBi), compared to most public safety antennas with a gain of -2 dBi or lower. It is the only public safety antenna with a guaranteed low PIM performance of < -150dBc @ 2x 20W.

“Increasingly, buildings and public venues are required by law to provide seamless coverage for public safety and first responders in the event of an emergency,” said Ephraim Ulmer, president and CEO of Galtronics. “We are responding to this need by providing one of the smallest antennas available on the market today to cover low frequencies starting at 380 MHz.”
