Providing reliable connectivity for advertising billboards
Digital signage is a fantastic addition to any business and can improve daily operations from promoting products to showing public transportation timetables. One of the biggest advantages of a cloud based digital signage solution is being able to control your screen content remotely. However the use of remote management also relies on wireless networks, and a high quality antenna.
For this reason, ABRI Services, a leading provider of outdoor advertising in France, needed to select an antenna that would connect their “urban furniture” to their control room.
The Antenna LPAM-BC3G-26
The LPAM-BC3G-26 has been designed to pro- vide 2×2 MiMo Cellular / LTE connectivity for IOT and M2M applications. The compact, robust low-profile housing is weatherproof and contains two antenna elements covering all current global cellular and LTE bands from 698-960/1710-3800MHz.
There is also an option to include an active GPS/GNSS antenna for applications which require positioning or timing functionality.
Operating in the western part of France, Abri Services is one
of the leading suppliers of “urban furniture” managing the de- sign, manufacture, installation and maintenance of bus shelters,
totems, digital signage and bike shelters with high quality, aesthetally pleasing and environmentally sustaina- ble products.
Established in 1972, the company puts environmental consciousness at the heart of their business and prides itself on having sustainable and innovative products.
In May 2018, Abri Services contacted Panorama Antennas to replace the existing telemetry MiMo antennas mounted on their advertising billboards and bus shelters.
The LPAM-BC3G-26 was chosen by ABRI after a couple of tests, which established the antenna was the best solution due to its rugged design, easy installation, and high quality cellular connectivity. Thanks to LPAM-BC3G-26, Abri Services has reliable and constant communication with their “urban furniture” even in the most challenging situations thus reducing call
out time and cost for technical team.
