If you live near any urban area, it's likely that you have taken public transportation at some point in your life. The hustle and bustle of a train or bus station can be overwhelming, but one technological advancement that has helped qualm that feeling is the digital sign. These electronic signs display the arrival times for busses/trains, and help you figure out where to go at what time.
The companies that manage these stations need to make sure that these signs are updated with accurate and timely information. Most of these companies manually control the signs from a central hub and send the updated times and locations to the digital signs. One key component to making sure this process runs smoothly is the antenna. An appropriate antenna can help ensure strong connection/communication and help keep these boards up to date.
RFMAX created the SlimFin antenna years ago with this exact application in mind. As you can see below, this antenna is sleek and slim:
- It is waterproof, which makes it safe to use with outdoor signage
- It has Dual 4G/LTE capability with the ability to be remotely controlled via proprietary software
- It works with many routers/modems, including the Cradlepoint IBR900 and IBR1100 models that this company was utilizing
The Slimfin antenna is perfect not only for these signs, but for any product that only has a small amount of surface area available to place an antenna.
