Antennas for the New NB-Iot
Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has developed a brand new antenna for the new Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) standard.
Built to a novel design, the antenna measures just 20 x 11 x 1.6mm, allowing excellent performance within a device, whilst being easy to integrate onto a small PCB. This is a chip antenna in the company’s lamiiANT antenna family. It is named Latona, (part no. SR4C033) and will be exhibited at Embedded World 2017, with samples available to order.
Narrow Band IoT is the latest mobile broadband standard. It uses the 3GPP licenced network spectrum which is secure and free from interference, and offers the combined advantages of low power, long range and the ability to penetrate walls and metal barriers. Narrow Band IoT is good for connecting devices within a long range or weak-spot signal distance
