Merlin, Oregon October 15, 2019 – Linx Technologies, a Merlin, OR based developer and manufacturer of antennas, has tripled its MON antenna series for LTE cellular applications, including LTE-M (Cat-M1) and NB-IoT cellular Internet of Things (IoT) uses. The addition of the “MON-L” and “MON-E” antennas provides more options for engineers and designers working in the demanding 600 MHz and 700 MHz LTE frequency bands that are favored in cellular IoT applications for signal range and robustness. MON Series external connector-mount antennas are compact with hinged, rotatable whips for performance optimization in indoor and protected applications.

The new MON-L provides excellent performance at 600 MHz LTE band 71 (Peak Gain 3.4 dBi, 73% efficiency) while both the MON-L and MON-E antennas offer outstanding performance at the 700 MHz frequency bands favored by North American carriers, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as in 800 MHz and 900 MHz ranges favored in Europe. All MON Series antennas also support cellular bands from 1710 MHz to 3800 MHz used by carriers worldwide. Additionally, the MON Series antennas can be used for low-power wide-area (LPWA) network applications at 868 MHz and 915 MHz for LoRaWAN® and Sigfox®, and members of the series also support Bluetooth®, GPS/GNSS and Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) applications.

“At Linx we recognize the tremendous need for compact antennas supporting the Internet of Things, and the lack of antennas that adequately address 600 MHz and 700 MHz LTE bands, particularly because of their importance for Cat-M1 (LTE-M) and NB-IoT in North America,” said Tolga Latif, President and CEO of Linx Technologies. “Our goal is to provide customers with the best opportunity for success in cellular IoT and that comes with low-band LTE performance in the new MON-L and MON-E antennas.”

The new MON-L (ANT-LTE-MON-SMA-L), MON-E (ANT-LTE-MON-SMA-E) and existing MON antenna (ANT-LTE-MON-SMA) are available today from Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks.
