SEPTEMBER 2015

 

A recent report from Beecham Research predicts the rapid growth of the M2M Connected Devices market with cellular modules sales predicted to reach $2.2 billion in 2019. Faster growth of wireless terminals is predicted with M2M wireless terminal sales expected to more than double in revenue terms from 2014 in the period to 2019.

Factors influencing the M2M market include timing, pricing and acceptance of new technologies offered by established cellular networks competing or collaborating with connectivity alternatives such as mesh networks and satellite. Migration of M2M devices to 4G LTE and 3G technologies is set to continue with the closing of 2G networks and the increasing sophistication of M2M applications driving the need for higher speeds.Multi-hop mesh protocols, such as TinyMesh and Zigbee, provide the capability to link together low data-rate machine-to-machine (M2M) applications with cellular gateways. Satellite offering unparalled worldwide connectivity is also seeing increased use for reliable M2M communications. Rapid development of new M2M products for specific markets has been made possible using the latest chipsets, choice of operating systems and a variety of standards based firmware.

The VeraPhase™ 6000 from Tallysman is a full GNSS Constellation antenna.

The VeraPhase antenna provides the lowest axial ratios (horizon to horizon, over all azimuths) across all GNSS frequencies.  The antenna  also provides exceptional front to back ratios, high efficiency (>70%), a tight PCV (± 1mm), and near constant PCO for all azimuth and elevation angles, over all in-band frequencies.

The performance of the VeraPhase™ rivals any geodetic / reference antenna sincluding choke ring antennas but is lighter, smaller, and more economical.

Benefits of this antenna include broadest tracking elevation (0°-180°),extreme precision, excellent multi-path rejection, excellent signal to noise ratio, and IP67 and RoHS compliance.

The performance of the VeraPhase™ rivals any geodetic / reference antenna including choke ring antennas but is lighter, smaller, and more economical. M2M Connectivity is offering a 21 day Evaluation Program for any customer wanting to test this antenna before purchase.
