Siretta Antennas announce 4G compatibility of Cellular Antenna range

Siretta Antennas – the Berkshire, U.K based M2M antenna specialist today announced that their range of Cellular antennas will be compatible with the European requirements of 4G.

4G is the fourth generation of cellular communications standard which is expected to succeed the current 3G and 2G standards. Its aim will be to provide a wider range of data rates of up to gigabit speed using a denser spread but lower powered set of cellsites, ensuring suitability for mobile and stationary users.

The European Commission decision has decreed that 4G communication devices are able to operate on the 900 / 1800MHz frequency bands and this must be implemented by EU Member States by the end of 2011. This will help to achieve the targets of the “Digital Agenda for Europe” which gives every European access to basic broadband by 2013 and fast and ultra fast broadband by 2020. Documents supporting this drive are IP/10/581, MEMO/10/199 and MEMO/10/200

David Taylor, Business Manager of Siretta Antennas explains “whilst neither the standards bodies nor carriers have set the exact frequencies and timeframes of 4G, the EU decision of using existing infrastructure is an important stake in the ground in solidifying what is required to comply with European 4G requirements. This sets the scene for future expansion on these frequencies followed by other frequencies later on and Siretta will ensure that their products are able to comply with these and future cellular requirements”.

4G is expected to provide IP based voice, data and streaming multimedia such as interactive TV through hand held devices. The European Commission aims to have all residents with access to 30Mbps connections by 2020. Today, only half of Europeans access the internet on a daily basis.
