Laird Announces the Release of Machine to Machine Antenna

Laird announced the release of a Machine to Machine (M2M) antenna with most complete cellular and data coverage inside a discrete, weather resistant design. In operational critical environments like manufacturing, warehouses, and field services, reliable and fast data access as well as alarm and control functionality are crucial for productivity and safety. The new LPS69223NT Omni Directional LTE Disk-Puck Antenna from Laird delivers these by offering complete cellular 3G/4G LTE data coverage, a low-profile design, single port connectivity, all from a housing built to withstand harsh environments (weather resistance rated IP67). The LPS69223NT Omni Directional LTE Disk-Puck Antenna is designed for applications where low profile, permanent mounting is a requirement and it is ideal for use where discrete tamper resistant installation is a must. Other applications include outdoor kiosks, remote ATMs, unsupervised RF remote monitoring and control devices.
