SkyCross Receives 2014 Mobility Tech Zone LTE Visionary Award

Dual iMAT Antenna Solution Honored For Its Ability to Help Mobile Operators Support Growing Data Demands 

SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 7, 2014 – SkyCross, a leading global designer and manufacturer of advanced antenna and RF solutions, announced today that its Dual iMAT antenna solution is a recipient of the 2014 Mobility Tech Zone LTE Visionary Award.

The LTE Visionary Awards recognize companies developing new technologies to support mobile operators’ LTE networks. The winners are companies that are making a documented impact in advancing LTE, such as developing solutions that facilitate the evolved packet core, delivering HetNet and small cell architectures, supporting network systems that enable complex applications, as well as those striving to increase data rates and network capacity. Contestants are evaluated based on their impact to expand reach and improve performance.

“SkyCross is honored to be recognized as a winner of the LTE Visionary Awards,” said Ben Naskar, CEO and chairman of SkyCross. “Our Dual iMAT antenna technology drastically improves data rates and overall performance for LTE devices while improving spectral efficiency, and we are excited about the role this product will play in helping carriers meet the immense global demand for high-speed wireless service.”

SkyCross Dual iMAT is the first-ever MIMO solution with more than 2 antennas for smartphones, and has achieved data rates approaching 600Mbps – more than 3X faster than today’s LTE mobile networks and devices. This revolutionary antenna innovation enables four or more antennas to fit into a smartphone form factor, while delivering sufficient isolation for MIMO (multiple input multiple output).

 “It is a pleasure to recognize SkyCross with this award. Their contribution toward the future of mobile broadband is noteworthy,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to more innovation from SkyCross in the future.”
