PCTEL Announces Multi-GNSS L1/L2/L5 Antennas for Precision Navigation

May 22, 2018

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2018-- PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced at the RSSI C&S Exhibition a new series of multi-GNSS L1/L2/L5 antennas for precision navigation and timing. The antennas combine aerospace-level precision with global satellite compatibility, in a highly durable package. They enable critical applications including vehicular automation, 5G network timing synchronization, and Positive Train Control (PTC) systems.

PCTEL’s multi-GNSS L1/L2/L5 antennas increase the accuracy of timing and location information by providing simultaneous access to multiple GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signals across multiple frequency bands. The antennas support all relevant GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo frequencies with excellent multipath mitigation and high out-of-band rejection for greater signal clarity. Their robust AAR and IP67-compliant design makes them suitable for years of use on railways and in other harsh real-world environments.

“Precision navigation is crucial for the next generation of autonomous vehicle technologies, which could drive major improvements in safety and efficiency across a wide variety of industries,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions group. “PCTEL’s new antennas make precision navigation accessible for large-scale deployments in rail, public safety, agricultural, and commercial fleets. They also enable commercial deployments of 5G networks, which have higher accuracy requirements for network timing,” added Bharadwaj.

PCTEL will display its new multi-GNSS antennas along with other antenna solutions for the rail industry, May 22-23 at the RSSI C&S Exhibition, booth #1109. The new antennas will be available for purchase in mid-July.
