All you need for your FirstNet Antenna Solutions

Panorama Antennas is the leading antenna supplier to public safety organisations around the world. Our success is built on understanding the evolving needs of the public safety industry, which is driven by the ever-increasing demand for complex communication systems. In the case of vehicles, the need to reduce installation costs and improve vehicle residual value at end of service life is of key importance whereas, for fixed sites, the need is to provide an aesthetically pleasing, ruggedized, high-performance solution is vital.

Panorama’s products have already been extensively proven in providing voice and data communications for public safety in the USA and beyond.

The GPSD MiMo Sharkee® antenna has been adopted by many public safety departments. It has a rugged OEM style shark fin housing, with single hole mounting, internal antennas for GPS/GNSS, 2×2 MiMo for 4G/5G with fallback capability, 2×2 MiMo dual band WiFi antennas, and a single, dual or tri-band P25 whip that can be fitted.

FirstNet operates on the AT&T 4G network which uses LTE technology over various frequency bands, to provide prioritized and resilient mobile broadband bearer for mission critical data services and will soon evolve to 5G.

The antenna is a critical part of a FirstNet vehicle installation in order to achieve the optimum 4G broadband performance.

What is FirstNet?

FirstNet is America’s only interoperable public safety wireless broadband communications network. Formed in 2012, its objective is to provide first responders and public safety agencies across the country with a secure, mission-critical platform for high speed data services.

Managed and operated by AT&T, FirstNet utilises a dedicated 20MHz frequency spectrum within LTE Band 14 (700MHz). In 2017, all 50 states in the US opted in to FirstNet and over 80% of the network is currently built out.

When complete over 70,000 public safety agencies across the US will have access to the network allowing for safer communities and more effective emergency responses.

With FirstNet growing by the day, so does the number of FirstNet Ready devices available on the market. These range from phones and laptops to in-vehicle router devices from manufacturers including Cradlepoint, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, PepLink, Digi, and more. Capable of utilising a FirstNet SIM card, these products also require high quality antennas operable at LTE Band 14 to ensure a robust, stable connection for the user.

This could be in the form of an externally mounted vehicle antenna to something more covert in certain circumstances, or in the case of a fixed site, in-building DAS or point to point solutions. Therefore antenna selection is an important aspect of any FirstNet deployment.

About The Technology

A key feature of LTE is that it uses MiMo (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology to enable a high speed broadband connection. The current requirement is for a 2×2 system, which uses two antennas at the client terminal, but with the introduction of LTE Advance Pro, a 4×4 MiMo antenna is required.
