The Taoglas MA963 Guardian is a next-generation 4x4 MIMO antenna. It is the world-first panel antenna designed for gateway and router devices with multiple wireless technologies. This antenna delivers powerful MIMO antenna technology for LTE and Sub-6 GHz 5G bands covering 600 MHz to 6 GHz.

This antenna is designed for 4G and 5G bands worldwide (including 3G fallback) for access points, terminals, and routers. CAT-M1 and NB-IoT and the recently introduced 600 MHz Extended LTE Band 71 are also covered. This wide bandwidth enables designers to cover a wide range of technologies by installing a single antenna installation. It is a heavy-duty, fully IP67 waterproof external M2M antenna available in both wall and adhesive mount versions.

Recommended Use

5G wireless applications demand high-speed data uplink and downlink. High efficiency and high gain MIMO antennas are necessary to achieve the required signal to noise ratio and throughput required to solve these challenges.

Taoglas also takes care to have high isolation among these antennas to prevent self-interference. Low loss cables used to keep efficiency high over long cable lengths. The antenna can be mounted internally or externally on a vehicle. The MA963 comes with 3 metres, low loss KSR200-P coaxial cables as standard.
