MIMO Antennas

MIMO (meaning Multiple Input Multiple Output) entails the use of many antennas at either the transmitter or the receiver, or both, to improve communication performance. For optimum performance, both the transmitter and the receiver must support MIMO. 

The majority of our MIMO antennas take advantage of ‘polarisation diversity’, which provides the greatest benefit to our customers. This means using orthogonal polarisations within the same aperture, either Vertical and Horizontal, or ±45°, which avoids the need for multiple units placed a number of wavelengths apart, and results in compact antenna units that are highly efficient.

One of the key benefits of this approach is that it enables significant increases in data throughput without requiring additional bandwidth. Other benefits include: 

  • Increased diversity-gain using dual-polarisation
  • Greater coverage using multiple sector antennas in conjunction with higher order MIMO systems (eg 4 x 4)
  • Minimise signal drop-out for a moving source
  • Space-efficient antennas
  • Cost-savings in antenna installation.
