Siretta Antennas, UK based M2M antenna specialist unveiled its Oscar 15 antenna, a rugged 2.4GHz antenna designed for increasing working range between access points and remote sites. The Oscar 15 antenna uses a high gain directional patch design enabling it to operate on the global licence exempt 2.4-2.5GHz ISM band. This ensures its suitability to operate on the Bluetooth and WiFi (802.11) networks, ZigBee Mesh networked systems (802.15.4) as well as other proprietary networks.

Long-Range 2.4GHz Antenna for Zigbee Bluetooth WLAN ApplicationsIncreasing the working range of up to 850 metres when compared to a 0dB antenna tuned on comparable frequencies, Oscar 15 ensures high data rates can be achieved over longer line of sight distances whilst using standard wireless equipment.

Oscar 15 is designed for point to point systems and radiates a 65º horizontal and vertical beamwidth providing a “torch beam” radiated pattern. Ideal for outdoor environments, Oscar 15 ruggedly built using a die cast aluminium base with an ABS gray plastic cover over the radiating element.

A mounting bracket is supplied allowing secure fixing to a variety of bases and this has been tested at wind speeds of up to 150Km/h. Oscar 15 answers the growing trend of an affordable, high powered, 2.4GHz outdoor antenna to be used with standard 2.4GHz router and access point systems. Ensuring respectable data rates are achieved over longer distances. Oscar 15 makes it ideal for use in remote building, outdoor SOHO or high end leisure park environments ensuring a good Quality of Signal is maintained for clients benefits
