ANTENNA: Huber+Suhner has launched the Sencity Rail MIMO 5 Port roof-top antenna designed to support onboard passenger connectivity and allow operators to boost their data transmission while using fewer antennas.

Designed for 2G/3G/4G cellular applications, the antenna meets the EN 50155 railway standards, is fire retardant and works on non-metallic surfaces and in temperatures of between -40 and 85°C. It is protected against high voltage and high currents, and has a common mounting for easy upgrading.

‘Operators can often feel the pinch when it comes to installing data transmission tools on-board trains’, said Daniel Montagnese, Product Manager, Antennas. ‘They must invest in solutions that are future-proof, low weight, space-saving and do not need to be ripped out every three years with the launch of each successive cellular generation. Our Sencity Rail MIMO 5 Port combats all of these issues head on.’
