ProAnt extends Acal BFi partnership to advance customer IoT and wireless designs across Europe

ProAnt extends Acal BFi partnershipTechnology-driven antenna company ProAnt has extended its existing partnership with Acal BFi, the European leader in advanced technology solutions, across the entire pan-European region. Customers’ wireless designs and solutions will immediately benefit from the newly-extended agreement, which builds on the existing successful partnership between to the two technology leaders in the Nordic region. Customers across Europe can now access technical expertise with a wide range of standard and custom antenna solutions from Acal BFi.

Critical to the performance of every wireless solution, antenna design is a key consideration. Acal BFi directly supports customers throughout their entire design and development stages, advising and recommending the best products and designs to meet their application needs.

This support is vital during early development stages when antenna design is often overlooked. Failing to consider it can have a detrimental impact on a solution’s final performance and could lead to costly, time consuming design changes.

Standard and custom solutions

Part of Acal BFi’s comprehensive IoT and wireless solutions portfolio, customers now have access to ProAnt’s patented and protected designs, such as its innovative Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA). Customers across Europe can now utilise both internal and external antenna options from ProAnt, which cover a range of frequencies for multiple technologies and ISM bands.

Acal BFi’s technical expertise ensures the best solutions are considered in customer designs and, where the ideal solution is not available or does not provide satisfactory results, Acal BFi can design, specify and manage the production of custom solutions from ProAnt, to meet customer’s exact requirements.

Advanced testing and refined designs

Alongside Acal BFi’s European Wireless Technical Competence Centre, the new agreement also provides customers with access to ProAnt’s cutting edge Development Laboratory to test and refine their designs. ProAnt can match, tune and measure antenna performance to further improve customer's designs, providing a full report on the matching circuits used, antenna performance and the radiation pattern of a customer’s individual product.

Lee Austin, Business Development Director for Communications Technology, Acal BFi, commented: “We are extremely excited to extend our existing agreement with ProAnt to all of our European customers. Acal BFi supports numerous customers with their wireless product designs and the antenna is arguably the most important aspect of this. ProAnt is widely recognised for their innovative solutions and, with our expertise, more customers will be able to enhance their designs with this leading technology.”

Tomas Rutfors, CEO, ProAnt, added: “Acal BFi has already proven the advanced levels of support its teams provide customers in the Nordic regions when using ProAnt technology in their designs. We are confident Acal BFi will continue this with customers across Europe, who now have access to our entire portfolio of antenna solutions and our custom design and test services.”
