L-com Supports Gigabit WiFi with 802.11ac Antennas

802.11ac offers up to 1 Gbps wireless transmissions and the ability to support up to eight MIMO spatial streams as well as 80 MHz channel bandwidth.

NORTH ANDOVER, MA - 12/12/13 - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that it will support the latest IEEE wireless standard 802.11ac with a series of indoor ceiling mount and outdoor panel style WiFi antennas that feature 2.4-5.8 GHz operation.


802.11ac offers up to 1 Gbps wireless transmissions and the ability to support up to eight MIMO spatial streams as well as 80 MHz channel bandwidth.

The HG2458-4SDC-6 series ceiling mount 802.11ac MIMO antennas feature 4 dBi of gain and six independent spatially diverse antennas in a single package. Three are designed to operate at 2.4 GHz and three are designed to operate at 4.9 to 5.8 GHz. The HG2458-3SDC-3 series ceiling mount antennas feature spatial diversity between three independent/integral antenna ports providing better wireless reception in areas susceptible to the affects of multi-path interference.

The HG2458-14DP-3NF outdoor rated panel antenna features three Independent 14 dBi antennas with two vertical and one horizontally polarized element. Other features include a heavy-duty UV-resistant plastic radome ideal for all-weather indoor or outdoor operation and a tilt and swivel mast mount kit which allows for quick installation at various degrees of up/down tilt.

?We strive to offer our customers support for the latest technologies. Our new 802.11ac antennas provide high speed wireless connectivity as well as high quality construction which are a hallmark of L-com?s products,? said Ken Burgner, Wireless Product Manager.
