Announces Telegesis ETRX3 ZigBee Module with Antenova’s 2.4GHz ZigBee antenna has been selected for Smart Gas Meters by Elster

Cambridge, UK – 27 February, 2012 – Antenova Ltd., the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced their 2.4GHz ZigBee antennas have been selected by Telegesis for their latest range of ZigBee Smart Energy Modules. Antenova further announced the collaboration has resulted in the Companies’ products being designed into a Smart Gas Meter by Elster, a leading global provider of gas, electricity and water meters.

“The machine-to-machine (M2M) market is growing at rapid pace with Smart Metering being one of the fasting growing sectors,” stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova. “Analysts predict explosive growth with many citing that more than a billion smart meters will be connected to M2M operator networks in 2020. Working closely with major cellular module vendors and more recently with low power wireless module companies like Telegesis has resulted in many successful design wins for Antenova. A complete off-the-shelf wireless solution is a very attractive proposition for companies looking to add wireless connectivity to their devices and shorten design cycles but have little or no internal RF resource.”

Nicholas Gomersall, Managing Director of Telegesis commented, “Telegesis has gained considerable traction with our extensive range of ZigBee Smart Energy modules and designs. We selected Antenova’s A5839 Rufa 2.4GHz antenna for our latest ETRX3 ZigBee Modules for its high performance, reliability and lower cost than a custom antenna design. These benefits enable us to provide customers lower cost standard solutions that accelerate their time to market and deliver predictable performance.”

Antenova offers the gigaNOVA range of market leading standard antenna solutions for a wide range of wireless M2M and embedded applications requiring cellular, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and GPS (1.575 GHz) connectivity.

Antenova’s full range of gigaNOVA antennas and Telegesis ETRX3 ZigBee Modules are available from Anglia M2M (, a specialist division of Anglia and a key UK and Ireland distributor for Antenova and Telegesis.
