MIMO Antenna Technology in COJOT's Steerable Beam Antennas
In the realm of wireless communication, technological advancements have shown in innovative transmission methods, with Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology emerging as a standard approach.
This article introduces three SBA models from COJOT that feature dual-polarized radiators to support MIMO: the brand-new SBA2025B-DP, the SBA3438B-DP and the SBA4450B-DP.
SBA2025B-DP – Dual-Polarized Steerable Beam Antenna for the S-Band
Tailored for the 2000-2500 MHz range, the new SBA2025B-DP is a compact, Steerable Beam Antenna engineered to support MIMO with dual-polarized radiators. Offering up to 20 beams and minimal side lobe levels, it delivers exceptional performance within a compact form factor. Its integrated 3D sensors ensure precise directional control, making it well-suited for tactical communication networks.
SBA3438B-DP – Dual-Polarized Steerable Beam Antenna for 5G
This SBA for the 3.4 to 3.8 GHz frequency band provides output for dual ±45° slant polarizations to support MIMO usage. The extremely fast beam steering capabilities of the SBA3438B-DP are ideal for complex 5G nodes and MESH networks.
SBA4450B-DP – Dual-Polarized Steerable Beam Antenna for the NATO Band IV
Designed for 4400 to 5000 MHz, the SBA4450B-DP is a Steerable Beam Antenna featuring remote-controlled beam steering with both vertical and horizontal polarization – enabling optimal gain direction and interference avoidance. Its swift beam steering via RS-485 or Ethernet communication enhances its adaptability in complex network configurations.

What is MIMO?
MIMO, short for Multiple Input Multiple Output, revolutionises wireless communication by multiplying the capacity of a radio link using multiple antennas for transmitting and receiving to benefit from multipath propagation. Whether it's optimising gain direction or mitigating interference, MIMO-enabled antennas such as the SBA2025B-DP, the SBA3438B-DP and SBA4450B-DP stand for communication efficiency in today's dynamic technological landscape.
