As reliability of wireless connectivity becomes increasingly important to SD-WAN and MEC applications, Lanner has allocated R&D resources towards wireless technology innovations –  not only did Lanner CAT-6 LTE module PGN-300 receive PTCRB and Verizon certifications, but it innovates LTE antenna design that enhanced signal efficiency and network compatibility.

Aiming to boost the signal efficiency of a compact desktop appliance such as NCA-1515, Lanner RF engineering team innovates the LTE antenna with the dual-layer coupling design, which amplifies signal transmission and reception in a multi-antenna setting. The new antenna design optimises the MIMO wireless data transmission performance as follows:

  • Outperforms signal efficiency of counterpart products by 30%, while narrowing the distance between two antennas down from 8cm to 4cm.
  • Improves the network band frequency comparability for all countries, which simplifies raw material preparation process as well as facilitating logistic support.
  • Design ready for future 5G Sub-6GHz band frequency.

The new antenna design is now available for all Lanner appliances and modules, including uCPE NCA-1515 and swappable LTE module PGN-series.

Lanner’s swappable LTE module

To deliver beyond-the-standards edge to cloud connectivity, Lanner offers PGN Series, a scalable, hot-swappable LTE module compatible with Lanner’s Intelligent Edge Appliances, such as V3S, V6S, NCR-1510, LEC-2290.

The swappable caddy design makes system maintenance and upgrades easier to meet customer needs. The modem card is optimally designed for intelligent VMS, mobility SD-WAN, and 4G LTE fail over for business continuity.
