Overview

The multi-mode composite antenna developed by researchers at Stellenbosch University achieves near hemispherical coverage with reduced power gain variation and improved polarisation discrimination capabilities when compared to conventional dual-polarised dipole antennas. This is currently the only antenna in the world which radiates over such a wide angle. This technology is ideally suited for wireless Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) access point applications where it is desirable to receive and transmit signals from a wide variety of possible angles, yet standard antenna elements rarely offer this type of performance and are never completely omnidirectional.
