TAIPEI, Taiwan -- SkyCross, a global antenna solutions company, is providing award-winning iMAT® antennas to TECOM Co., Ltd. (Tecom), a leading manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, for its latest WiMAX USB dongles. VMAX, a WiMAX operator and 2.5 GHz license holder in Taiwan, will offer the USB dongles for its trial network in June and its full commercial launch in Q3 of this year.

The WiMAX standard requires MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) operation, which typically calls for multiple antennas. However, today’s small mobile devices do not provide the additional space necessary for these antennas to operate without interfering with each other. iMAT solves this challenge by enabling a single antenna element to behave like multiple antennas. Recent field tests confirmed that the antenna is a key component to the overall system throughput, and the iMAT antenna yielded the highest throughput on average compared to PCB antennas, ceramic chip antennas, and others.

“We are very pleased that Tecom selected our antennas for the WiMAX network deployment in Taiwan,” said David Williams, Director at SkyCross. “This win underscores the benefits that iMAT delivers not only to the device, but also to the network. A greater number of efficient, iMAT-equipped devices on a network can improve the capacity and bandwidth of the entire system, enabling operators to optimize network performance without additional infrastructure investments.”
