Getting the correct custom RF cables, which are used in a wide range of wireless solutions, has long been a frustrating and overly lengthy process for engineers but now Taoglas has modernized the procedure with a new online cable assembly wizard that revolutionizes the whole transaction.
Dermot O’Shea, President of the company, explained to me at the CTIA Wireless show in Las Vegas, that his company has taken human interaction out of the equation. Although his company has manufactured cables in Taiwan for many years, he says the company’s new location in San Diego, CA will address the needs of companies who can’t wait for the cables to ship from overseas.
In addition, the company has new antenna solutions for IoT and has recently opened an office in Munich, Germany to serve the automotive among other markets. In January of this year, Laura Stotler covered the company’s growth in the M2M space via an article on TMC’s IoT Evolution World site.
Dermot also showed me the company’s Gemini LMA100 antenna for 2×2 MIMO LTE/4G coverage as well as a new in-car solution which is powerful enough to prevent the need for drilling holes in the vehicle’s roof for coverage.
The bottom line is antenna technology is helping to improve coverage in numerous applications and Taoglas has a reputation for testing of all its components and solutions before delivery. This is important as the cost to remotely diagnose and eventually roll a truck and find a damaged wireless solutions is very high. Anything you can do to minimize faulty connections ahead of time, needs to be done to minimize excess costs.
For your viewing pleasure I’ve included some of the past interviews TMC has conducted with the company but before we get started – here is one of the more interesting news items about the company getting involved in the LTE antenna market in 2012. It’s an article that was covered on the Next Generation Communications Community sponsored by Alcatel Lucent.:
