We are passionate about helping our clients
achieve their goals & grow their brands.
For LTE operators, our technology provides capability to steer Vertical & Horizontal beams with any desired beam-steering increments to fine tune their coverage area and minimize interference among the zones.
MRA can dynamically change antenna radiation pattern, polarization
and frequency to select the winning state in the wireless zone.
MRA can dramatically boost user experience by eliminating interference
and increasing reliability to all wireless assets with the define network policy.
Our team is almost exclusively comprised of experienced engineers who are focused on developing antenna technologies over a decade. And we are committed to keeping it that way.
i5 is commercializing groundbreaking, patented hardware and software based antenna technology that makes wireless networks higher performing, more efficient, and easier to use.
We're building solutions designed to radically improve end user device performance while providing carriers, GSM Operators and ISPs with increased data revenue opportunities.
i5 communications designs and develops Multifunctional Reconfigurable Antenna (MRA) systems with their patented technologies. In house design and engineering expertise are consistently applied to develop new products that meet the unique needs and expectations of each customer. Finding solutions for unique needs or applications is our specialty and what truly sets i5 apart from the competition.
To meet the demands of an increasingly wireless world, and target the legacy performance problems of wireless communications, i5 developed smart antennas that are capable of dynamically adapting radiation pattern based on exiting wireless channel parameters by avoiding interference and poor signal strength. Markets served include IT, telecom, industrial & instrumentation, space, automotive/transportation, medical, mining, aviation, maritime and railroad.
A Beam-Steering Reconfigurable Antenna for WLAN Applications

Abstract—A multifunctional reconfigurable antenna (MRA) capable of operating in nine modes corresponding to nine steerable beam directions in the semisphere space is presented. The MRA consists of an aperture-coupled driven patch antenna with a parasitic layer placed above it. The surface of the parasitic layer has a grid of 3 3electrically-small square-shaped metallic pixels. The adjacent pixels are connected by PIN diode switches with ON/OFF status to change the geometry of the parasitic surface, which in turn changes the current distribution on the antenna, thus provides reconfigurability in beam steering direction...
