Cellular Dual Diversity MiMo for 4G LTE

Cellular antennas have played an important rule for a lot of consumers that live in areas with poor or no cellular signal. Carriers are now aggressively rolling out 4G LTE like Verizon Wireless, which already offer LTE in over 400 markets and other carriers like AT&T and Sprint trying to catch up. Unlike 3G connectivity, 4G LTE service takes advantage of MiMo (Multiple-input/Multiple-output) allowing you to use separate antennas for send and receive if your device supports dual antennas.

What is MiMo Dual Diversity?

MiMo technology can offer increased data throughput on both the downlink and uplink without requiring additional bandwidth or transmit power. Rather than having twice the transmit power MiMo allows the device to spread the transmit power across the antennas to achieve diversity gain to improve link reliability. To take advantage of MiMo in a 4G LTE area you’ll need an embedded solution, which allows you to insert a SIM card directly into a router to provide connectivity.
