San Jose California, (September 30, 2003) - Eurotec Technical Solutions, Limited (ETS), leading designer and manufacturer of antennas for wireless communications today announced the availability of the 5.2 GHz Collinear high performance antenna for in-building and out-door wireless communications. The company's Omnidirectional Collinear antenna provides reliable, widespread coverage for broadband Internet and other 802.11a applications in public places, hospitals, retail stores, office buildings and out-door areas.

"With the increasing acceptance and usage of increasingly diverse wireless networking in offices, restaurants, airports, hotels, retail stores, manufacturing and homes, users are struggling to keep up with advances in wireless communications", stated Tony Jacobs of RF iNet, "The 5.2 GHz Collinear antenna is an ideal solution for enterprises to easily upgrade existing 802.11b voice and data networks to include 802.11a applications coverage."

The ETS Omnidirectional Collinear antenna offers a significant gain improvement over traditional dipole antennas leading to more widespread indoor coverage in crowded wireless environments, Enclosed in a small sleek case, the 5.2GHz 05-5200-V antenna easily attaches to the ceiling tile grid with standard metal clips to blend into virtually any public environment and pose minimal interference on the building interior. A significant feature of the ETS 5.2GHz collinear antenna is that it can be used indoors or outdoors. The Antenna is UV stabilized and uses Plenum rated RJ58 coax cable. The designer stainless steel base allows for mounting both indoors and out thus allowing the customer to purchase one antenna for all their Omnidirectional 5.2 GHz needs.

The ETS 5.2 GHz 05-5200-V Omnidirectional Collinear antenna is extremely high performance with a peak gain of 6 dBi and impedance of 50 ohms. It is a linear polarized antenna and operates at temperatures ranging from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius.
