Antenna Product Line for Access Points and Routers

SkyCross announces that it has applied its Isolated Mode Antenna Technology (iMAT) to a new product line for access points and routers. iMAT consolidates the performance benefits of multiple antennas into a single antenna to lower cost of ownership, simplify integration, and improve aesthetic designs without sacrificing performance. The first antenna released covers 2.4 GHz and 5.1 to 5.9 GHz to support 801.11 a/b/g/n. iMAT is particularly advantageous for 802.11n, which requires MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) operation. Traditionally, this protocol requires device manufacturers to have two to four external antennas on an access point or router. By using an iMAT antenna, device manufacturers can quickly realize the cost and integration savings, and end customers can easily see the reduction of antennas when selecting a product.
