Maxrad recently introduced a line of directional sector panel antennas designed for wireless Internet point-of-presence network sites that operate in both the Wi-Fi and WiMAX unlicensed bands. The MSB2401690 utilizes pattern-shaping technology to allow contoured coverage and optimal signal performance within the desired propagation area. It covers frequencies from 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz with 16 dBi gain and front-to-back ratio greater than 28 dB.

The WiSP24017MBH is a 2.4 GHz horizontally polarized antenna that offers selectable horizontal beam-width options of 45, 60, 90 and 120 degrees, and up to 17 dBi gain in a compact UV-resistant housing. It has a front-to-back ratio greater than 30 dB at 120, 90 and 60 degreees, and greater than 26 dB at 45 degrees.

In addition, Maxrad has added two antennas that cover the 2700 MHz to 2900 MHz frequencies, and said it would introduce a wideband adjustable sector panel antenna covering 4.9 GHz to 6 GHz in mis-September.
