IoA – IoT for Antennas

Antenna Alignment Sensor

IoA – IoT for Antennas is an IoT antenna sensor that monitors alignment in three dimensions: azimuth, tilt, and roll. IoA utilizes LTE CAT-M1/NBIoT to alert of undesired changes to all antennas being monitored.

From the Field to Your Desk

Each antenna can be individually identified on a tower or throughout the entire network. With IoA, operators can set thresholds for changes in azimuth, tilt, and roll. When these thresholds are exceeded, an alarm will be generated, and the operator will be notified immediately. In case of emergencies, priority lists can be easily created using available alignment data, allowing for faster disaster recovery.


Easy to Set Up

Installing IoA is a quick process designed with the technician in mind. Simply insert an IoT-enabled SIM card and attach IoA to the back of the antenna to start reporting antenna alignment data to the cloud. Use the software to set alignment thresholds.

Quality Standards

Every IoA device is designed to surpass performance standards required for wireless monitoring products. It has a battery lifetime of 5+ years* and strictly enforced waterproof sealing standards-IP67.

*Note: Depending on reporting frequency.
