Antenova Poised to be the Provider of Choice for Global Off-The-Shelf M2M Antennas

By Michael Guta April 10, 2013

Machine to machine (M2M) communications uses machines to capture events and relays it over a network by transmitting this data so it can be used accordingly. A key component in these machines is the antenna used to transmit the data. Because M2M devices are placed in many different types of environments, the antenna and other components have to be designed together to withstand extreme heat, cold, motion, moisture as well as other conditions. Antenova M2M provides high performing antenna solutions for M2M applications, and recently announced it will be focusing on the global M2M and connected device markets with off-the-shelf antennas.

Antenova is entering the global market with its line of gigaNOVA and RADIONOVA RF Antenna Moudules. These systems have a proven track record in real world applications for wireless M2M and embedded device applications including automatic meter reading (AMR), fixed wireless access, electronic shelf labels, home automation, industrial computing, mHealth, telematics, trackers and wireless security.

Both antennas can be applied in embedded antenna systems that have to meet size, efficiency, power consumption and OEM price points for vendors who provide M2M applications for a variety of customers. The systems can be integrated for automotive, consumer, enterprise, industrial, maritime and industrial applications.

The gigaNOVA and RADIONOVA RF antennas provide a broad range of wireless connectivity solutions including GSM and CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ISM, WiMAX, ZigBee and FM. The flexibility, size and reliable performance of these antennas give system integrators many different possible applications including Automatic Vehicle Locators (AVLs), Maritime Emergency Identification and Tracking devices, Personal Trackers and Vehicle ‘Black Box’ amongst others.

“Most of our customers require more than one type of wireless connectivity for their M2M applications. For instance, most tracker applications for vehicles and personal safety require a GPS connection for location information and a cellular connection for communicating back to the system operator, while home automation or security systems may use a Bluetooth, ZigBee or ISM connection for communication between nodes in the home, office or building, but use a Wi-Fi, GSM or LTE broadband connection to the service provider,” stated Colin Newman, vice president of sales and marketing at Antenova M2M.
