Alcan Systems is developing a new class of innovative smart antennas—ultra thin flat panel technology, very low power usage, and able to adjust its beam electronically without any moving parts—at an extremely affordable price.
The result is a high-performance, future-proof data connectivity solution for any location. With the groundbreaking method of using liquid crystal display assembly line for production, the Alcan Systems flat panel antenna represents a technology breakthrough in satellite and cellular communications.
Alcan smart antennas are designed to meet the needs of a range of markets including maritime, aero, land mobility, consumer broadband, and enterprise. Alcan’s systems are compatible with satellites in any orbital altitude (LEO, MEO and GEO) and can support Ka and Ku band frequencies.
The low profile, low power, low cost nature of the Alcan antennas also makes them ideally suited for cellular backhaul, easily placed on top of cell towers for expanded 3G and 4G coverage, and ultimately 5G services as well.
Furthermore, Alcan’s antennas will provide critical Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) for 5G, as the mmWave signal from the cell-towers need to be transferred into buildings.
