Wireless fleet management systems from Mobile Mark

Mobile Mark

Schiller Park, Ill—For wireless fleet management and GPS fleet tracking, Mobile Mark has launched its new LTM series MIMO antennas (multiple-input and multiple-output). The wireless fleet management systems support LTE/Cellular, WiFi 802.11n and GPS. The company will highlight the new antenna series at the upcoming DistribuTECH conference and exhibition, Jan 29-31, in San Diego at booth 949.

"The LTM series antennas provide optimal performance for the latest wireless fleet management systems, whether they feature LTE MIMO modems, WiFi MIMO modems, or both. The LTM is ready to accommodate them all while also supporting GPS in one compact radome that lowers installation costs," said Michael Berry, Mobile Mark president. "For any application that requires real-time video uplinks and downlink from vehicles—from emergency response to commercial transport—our LTM antennas are incredibly robust and dependable. In addition, we can customize the antennas with longer cable runs or specialized connectors to meet the unique needs of any implementation."

The LTM series was designed for wireless applications that combine an LTE MIMO modem with a WiFi MIMO modem and a GPS receiver. This combination requires five separate antenna elements: two for LTE, two for WiFi, and one for GPS. Until now, many wireless systems integrators using this combination had to install multiple antennas. But the LTM series combines up to five high-efficiency antennas in one compact, surface-mount radome. Measuring 5.5 inches (140mm) in diameter with a low profile of 2.38 inches (61mm), the LTM series antennas take up significantly less space than multiple antennas and cut down on installation time and costs by offering a single mounting hole.

Although the antenna is typically available with five cables (LTM501), other combinations are also possible (e.g. 4-cable LTM401, 3-cable LTM301). All three models are equipped with two dual-band LTE antennas for LTE MIMO modems, in addition to a dual-voltage GPS antenna. The LTM301 offers only the LTE and GPS antennas; the LTM401 adds a single dual-band 2.4/5 GHz WiFi antenna, while the LTM501 adds two WiFi antennas for 802.11n MIMO modems. All antennas feature 15-foot cables to accommodate larger transport vehicles, but customized lengths are available.
