Wideband Antennas Named Finalist in 2013 CTIA E-TECH Awards

Wideband Antenna's Wavestack Recognized for Innovation in Network Infrastructure -- Green Telecom & Smart Energy Solutions

TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2013) - Wideband Antenna's Smart Antenna System Wavestack™ was named a finalist in the Network Infrastructure -- Green Telecom & Smart Energy Solutions category of CTIA's annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. The CTIA E-Tech Awards honor the industry's most innovative new wireless products and services in mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise & vertical markets and network technology. Winners will be announced at CTIA 2013™, taking place May 21-23, 2013 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. Wideband Antennas will showcase its smart antennas at Booth #2425.

Wideband Antenna's Smart Antenna System and patent-pending Wavestack antenna technologies open a wide range of groundbreaking possibilities for commercial and residential wireless services that require high performance, flexible design, and reliable coverage. Available in active and passive versions, Wideband's antennas lead the industry by:

  • Providing multiple cellular (GSM, LTE, 3G, 4G) and Wi-Fi RF band coverage in a single antenna.
  • Delivering unparalleled bandwidth and gain.
  • Providing higher gain, lower VSWR, and a smaller environmental footprint than competing solutions.

Together with the broad portfolio of advanced IP solutions, Wideband's Wavestack antenna solutions lead to ubiquitous high-speed mobile coverage with no dead spots.

"Our entire team is honored and excited about the prestigious nomination to the elite group of CTIA finalists along with the recognition our Wavestack products continue to receive. After dedicating decades developing products that met my passion for excellence, I observed a glaring omission in wireless communications: Nowhere could I find a total solutions package that covered all radio-frequency bands of communications using a single antenna," stated Wideband Antenna CEO Henry Cooper. "At Wideband Antennas, we were able to develop a revolutionary solution we call Wavestack that allows one antenna to operate in all current cellular (GSM, LTE, 3G, 4G) and Wi-Fi radio bands."

"We achieved this breakthrough using a modular package that is a third of the size of competing solutions that can only support a subset of radio frequencies using a much larger enclosure," added Cooper. "I welcome the opportunity that CTIA provides to work closely with manufacturers, OEMs, and VARs to craft targeted RF drop-in solutions that articulate their vision and success."

Nearly 300 entries were judged by a panel of highly respected industry experts, reporters and analysts. Submissions were scored on innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall "wow" factor. E-Tech winners, including Best in Show and Online Pick will be announced at the awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 22 at 2:00 p.m. PDT at CTIA's Exhibit Innovations Stage on the trade show floor within CTIA World, booth #5646.
