Why Choose Laird
Laird’s expertise and experience designing and manufacturing RF modules and antennas for Cellular/LTE, Massive MIMO, V2V/V2I as well as other wireless technologies has uniquely positioned Laird as a technology leader in the public safety space.
Laird’s unique and proprietary AIO (Artificial Intelligence Optimizer) software enables Laird to design antennas that are fully optimized for specific applications, beyond the capabilities of conventional software design optimization.
Laird has proven itself as a leader in low profile and ultra-low-profile antennas with the best range possible for environments that demand antennas that aesthetically blend into their environment.
Public Safety DAS – In-building Distributed Antenna Systems (iDAS) improve indoor public safety connectivity by bringing UHF/3G/4G/FirstNet radio signals inside buildings supporting critical communications for first responders. Proper antenna selection helps ensure the call quality and connection speeds that users expect in locations such as:
- Shopping centers
- Public venues
Vehicular Solutions- In the past, public safety vehicle solutions were used to enable specific communication technologies. Today, with multi-agency, first responder, critical communication systems that enable video, data, cellular, location services, LMR, and FirstNet communications, the vehicle has become a mobile communication hub (acting as a LAN). Therefore, the deployment of antennas is more complex, requiring low profile, multi-port antennas with MIMO enabling technology.
2-way Portable Handheld Radios- These radios require traditional VHF and UHF ¼-wave/ ½-wave rubber duck antennas as well as ultra-wide band antennas, including VHF/UHF/700/800/GPS all in a single antenna solution.
Base Station- Base station antennas are a critical element in any public safety network. The deployment of antenna solutions require a combination of antenna styles with various RF characteristics, mechanical and environmental needs. These include high gain omnidirectional and directional antennas.
