ARLINGTON, Va. -- Galtronics Corporation Ltd. (www.galtronics.com) announced today that its single 690–2700 MHz In-Building Distributed Antenna that provides MIMO for the LTE 690-806 MHz band significantly outperformed two spatially separated competitor antennas in data throughput tests recently conducted by American Tower at the Las Vegas Hilton. These test findings, unveiled here at the DAS in Action 2011 forum, confirm the MIMO advantage for In-Building DAS systems operating in the 750 MHz LTE spectrum.

In the on-site testing, the Galtronics dual-polarized MIMO antenna (Model No: 02108261-04772) significantly enhanced data throughput in the LTE 750 MHz band throughout the hotel’s common areas, outperforming two spatially separated SISO antennas tested at the same locations. The Galtronics antenna more than doubled the overall speed and also enhanced the quality of reception at the edge of coverage. These enhanced capabilities deliver higher data rates to mobile users while offering the venue owner lower installation costs by only having to install one antenna instead of two.

“Galtronics is pleased to announce these revolutionary test results of our in-building antenna product,” said Ephraim Ulmer, president and CEO of Galtronics Corporation Ltd. “The industry has long speculated on MIMO capabilities at 750 MHz for an in-building environment; these tests prove the case once and for all. Galtronics’ break-through antenna solution provides remarkable MIMO performance through a single antenna eliminating the need for two spatially separated units -- saving system and installation cost while providing breakneck speed for the end user.”
