Many connected devices are battery-powered meaning low-power consumption is important for prolonging the useful life of the device and achieving an acceptable Return on Investment (ROI).

Antenna choice and position have proven to be some of the most critical decisions for finding the optimal balance between radiated power and battery life requirements and, in many cases, these are the primary factors affecting device power consumption. A more efficient antenna will require less power to transmit the same data payload.

Jaap Groot, Ignion’s CEO, will share how Virtual Antenna™ technology provides engineers the peace of mind that products will meet carriers’ performance requirements, and that valuable battery power is not consumed simply to compensate for antenna inadequacies.
