BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - February 27, 2008) - Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. today announced the addition of VHF frequencies to its popular Universal Access™ Ceiling Monopole (UACM) Antenna. The UACM Antenna delivers wideband performance in one of the most compact (11.8" by 4.6 inches) units available for distributed antenna applications. For developers adding in-building wireless systems, VHF coverage provides a key link to police, fire, EMT, and security communications through its continuous operation from VHF into C-band microwave frequencies. In addition, the UACM Antenna covers cellular, WiFi, WiMAX and other high-speed wireless network bands.

With its light (1.5 lbs (665 g), compact fractal design, the UACM Antenna is easily installed on typical ceiling panels. The Antenna's wide frequency range protects in-building wireless infrastructure investments by future-proofing the installation as new standards and frequency allocations emerge. At higher elevations between the Antenna and the signal source, the Antenna has excellent gain, avoiding typical room barriers, such as cubicle walls.

"Adding VHF to the popular UACM Antenna brings building developers the ability to easily add necessary communications systems required for the safety of the public," said David Moschella, President and CEO of Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc.

Operating over 150 MHz to 6 GHz, the UACM Antenna delivers excellent omni-directional coverage, with gain of approximately 4 dBi, even at relatively low frequencies. The product is available for immediate order. Contact Fractal Antenna Systems for pricing information. For more product information log onto
