MP Antenna Partners with Skycasters

North Ridgeville, OH – January 19, 2011 MP Antenna chose to partner with Skycasters on MP Antenna’s High Gain 2.4 GHz Multi-Polarized Omni-Directional 8dBi WiFi antenna after Skycasters tested and selected the 8dBi for improving its Mobile Satellite Trailer WiFi reach.

Many Mobile Satellite Trailer customers use mobile wireless devices including laptops, VoIP phones, and SCADA control devices. It’s not always possible to park a satellite trailer right at the scene of action, due to necessity to “see” the satellite from the trailer’s position. So ample WiFi hotspot diameter is important.

Skycasters’ RF Engineer Mario Tomaselli described Skycasters’ choice of the HG antenna, “We’ve been looking for a way to improve the wireless signal at distances as far as a thousand feet from the trailer. We chose MP Antenna’s product because they’re based in Ohio, the antenna is reasonably priced, and in our field evaluation where we ran comparison tests with a comparable antenna, the Omni out-performed the other antenna.”

That’s Skycasters’ story, but just the beginning of the story for MP Antenna because Skycasters modified the HG antenna to fit the Mobile Satellite Trailer’s WiFi antenna mast, and showed the modification to MP Antenna. MP Antenna liked the modification so much they created a new part number for it, and sends Skycasters the antennas when another customer wants a similar modification.

“MP Antenna was founded just a few years ago because we innovated antennas no one else had,” said Mark Ardire. “So we’re very interested in partnering with customers who tweak our product in such a way it becomes that much more useful. We’re already getting inquiries on this modification, and that’s exciting.”
