Taoglas to Appear at embedded world Exhibiting 5G NR Beam-steering Gateway Antennas

New Taoglas 5G NR KSF.410?complements the Taoglas Shift Sub-6GHz antenna to provide an integrated antenna solution for 5G fixed wireless access gateways.

BARCELONA, ES. and NUREMBERG, DE. Taoglas announced the launch of the Taoglas 5G NR KSF.410, a new 5G millimeter wave beam-steering antenna targeting frequency bands 27.5 GHz to 28.35 GHz. Taoglas will be showcasing the 5G NR KSF.410 at embedded world in Nuremberg, Germany from February 26-28 and can be found in hall 3, booth 336. 

Taoglas’ beam-steering technology changes the economics of next-generation wireless networks by extending coverage and increasing throughput exponentially, while requiring less equipment.

Taoglas’ beam-steering technology found in the KSF.410 array and chipset combination is configured to work with an algorithm to provide dynamic beam control. This new antenna array means the solution has extremely robust amplitude and phase control with very fine beam tuning. The KSF.410 utilizes a new beam-steering chipset technology from Analog Devices.

Additional capabilities of the KSF.410 include:

  • Wide azimuth coverage; +/-60 degrees beam scan
  • Peak Gain: 17dBi
  • 16-element array with full amplitude and phase control at each element
  • compact package at 105x35x1mm

“Beam-steering is critical to 5G, allowing operators to extend coverage of 5G networks and achieve higher throughput without additional infrastructure investment,” said co-CEO and co-founder of Taoglas, Ronan Quinlan. “Taoglas was early to market with beam-steering technology in our groundbreaking Taoglas Shift™ antenna for Sub-6GHz applications, and now we have beam-steering at NR mmWave with the KSF.410. The availability of production-quality beam-steering chipsets from a company like Analog Devices at production prices is a testament to just how quickly the 5G market is maturing. Now customers developing fixed wireless access gateways for 5G networks can integrate our Shift Sub-6GHz and the KSF.410 NR mmWave antennas quickly into their products to be first to market. Our engineering teams will work with the device manufacturer to get the product integrated, optimized and tested quickly.”
