Supply of 802.11n antennas is expected to continue on the upswing to match demand for faster data rates.
- Rising supply: WLAN antennas based on 802.11b/g/n are mainstream in China, and 802.11n types represent only about 40 percent of output. Production of the latter kind will continue climbing, however, in line with demand for faster transmission rates and compatible frequencies.
- Bandwidth, gain & VSWR improvements: Widening the frequency bandwidth, raising the gain and lowering the VSWR make up the cornerstone of companies’ R&D targets. Some models now support 35dBi gain and less than 1.4 VSWR. Upcoming units will enable omnidirectional, dual-polarization operation.
- Multiple frequencies, signal coverage: Suppliers are speeding up the development of antennas that work with VHF, UHF, GSM, CDMA, 3G and WIMAX. For signal coverage, companies offer directional and omnidirectional designs. More releases will adopt high-grade radome.
