August 06, 2018
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2018--
PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical
TELecom solutions, announced at APCO 2018 the next generation of
its Trooper™ antenna, the company’s flagship multi-band platform for
public safety fleets. The new Trooper™ II provides optimal wireless
communications performance through the antenna’s 4-port 4G LTE
connections and 4x4 802.11ac Wi-Fi MIMO capability. It also incorporates
PCTEL’s newest high rejection multi-GNSS technology for high precision
tracking and asset management.
“The Trooper II antenna enhances PCTEL’s successful Trooper platform,
with expanded multi-band RF and GNSS capability in a robust, aerodynamic
housing. Its slender new design with a single cable exit accommodates
installation restrictions often encountered on modern public safety
vehicles,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, Senior Vice President and General
Manager of PCTEL's Connected Solutions group. “Our Trooper antennas have
been broadly deployed on public safety fleets, notably in support of the
leading FirstNet public safety broadband network systems. The Trooper II
is also ideal for many Industrial IoT deployments,” added Bharadwaj.
The rugged Trooper II is exceptionally versatile and easy to install.
The antenna features PCTEL’s new proprietary high rejection multi-band
technology, which supports GPS L1, GLONASS, and Galileo for high
precision tracking. In addition to public safety applications, this
antenna is also excellent for tracking and communications support for
industrial IoT and other fleet management applications, including
farming tractors for precision agriculture, utility service fleets, and
railway positive train control systems.
PCTEL will display the Trooper II antenna August 6-7 at APCO 2018, Booth
1719 along with its portfolio of antennas for the public safety industry
and grid testing solution for in-building public safety networks.
The Trooper II antenna is available for pre-order now. First shipments
are expected in early fall. Order using part #GL9X1AX-TRB.
