Mobile Mark’s antennae used at NHS Nightingale

Mobile Mark, which supplies wi-fi components to the bus and coach sector, played a part in the rapid establishment of the NHS Nightingale hospital at ExCel in London.

As the 4,000-bed facility in ExCel Centre was established to help fight COVID-19, Adey Electronics chose a Mobile Mark antenna to ensure reliable wireless connectivity so that essential medical data compiled by Visbion’s mobile ct scanner unit could be sent easily to medical personnel.

“The Mobile Mark LTM-302 antennas were selected for this critical project quite simply because they offer great solutions for applications that present very specific technical challenges,” says Lewis Harvey, Adey Electronics. “They were able to offer a bespoke version of the LTM-302 antenna design to meet the technical and aesthetic needs of the end user and very importantly, within tight project deadlines.”

Mobile Mark’s LTM302 multiband antenna employs MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) technology using two 4G LTE Cellular antenna elements for faster and more reliable data through-put. The cellular elements cover 4G & 5G spectrum from 694-3700 MHz.

The LTM302 used at the temporary medical facilities also contains a GPS antenna that can be used to track the scanner’s location for efficient management of equipment inventory. 

Linda Clark, managing director, Mobile Mark Europe, says: “Communication within that building was made possible by Mobile Mark antennas. We are proud to be doing our bit towards the continuing fight against this awful virus.”
