Products We Provide
Our antenna systems are developed and manufactured to the highest quality standards, leveraging our deep experience in HF technology. Customers value the performance of our systems – which include customer-specific development and integration in existing vehicle concepts in the automotive OEM/tier 1 segment and standard products for the aftermarket, transports and logistics areas and M2M markets. We cover all frequency ranges for analogue and digital reception of radio and TV channels, for mobile data services such as LTE or 3G and 2G, for navigation services, and for keyless entry and remote start, among other applications.
Cars have moved beyond transportation to providing users with comfort and infotainment. The global demand for multifunctional infotainment systems extends beyond navigation, radio, mobile communication, CDs and DVDs, and MP3 and MP4. Internet and TV help make travel more pleasurable for passengers, one reason demand for infotainment systems is steadily increasing.
HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY tuner systems enable first-class reception of radio and TV stations and playback of a wide range of entertainment media for vehicle passengers – even at high speeds. Broadcasting and mobile data services reception can be mapped in a single system, in terms of both technology and installation.

HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY M2M and telematic systems offer powerful transmitter and receiver systems for navigation services and mobile data exchange – suited for M2M markets and the transport and logistics industry. The smart antenna systems have receiver/transceiver chipsets integrated in the antenna package, making them highly flexible and cost-effective. Customers can easily equip telematic solutions with antennas, with no need to integrate them with HF receivers. We offer GPS receiver components, cellular transceiver modules, and new Iridium transceiver antenna system and communication terminals.
Markets & Industries
HIRSCHMANN MOBILITY complete systems are supplied to the automotive industry, including infotainment, antenna and tuner systems, and individual components such as radio and TV modules. From development to production, we offer a full range of services. Our systems enable:
- The reception of classic broadcasting services such as AM/FM, DAB, DVB-T, DVB-T2 and many others for radio and worldwide TV reception
- Mobile data services such as GSM, 3G or LTE/4G, the navigations/telematics services GPS, and GLONASS (and others)
- Satellite services like Iridium and ORBCOMM
We work collaboratively with the automotive industry and OEMs to design an entire HF architecture within the vehicle. Our technologies provide connections in routine, complex, and challenging installation conditions for compact and luxury cars and commercial vehicles. Our portfolio of solutions for vehicles, which can be flexibly integrated, is supplemented with a wide range of radio and TV modules for automotive suppliers.
Thanks to advanced telematic and antenna systems, we can determine the position, status, and surroundings of a vehicle and then analyze this data to initiate any immediate response measures that are required. In this context, "transportation" includes all systems that are linked directly or indirectly to a vehicle.
With our decades of experience and technical know-how, we provide ongoing collaboration to make our customers’ applications a success. Our telematic and antenna solutions deliver impressive transmission, reception quality, and robustness for ongoing use in harsh environments. As a result, they are suited for applications in trucks, construction machinery, and agricultural machinery. In the area of asset tracking, we deliver customer-specific solutions for container and trailer tracking. Our strong network enables us to deliver solutions for customers’ individual requirements.
In the area of aftermarket solutions, we offer our customers retrofitted vehicle infotainment and antenna systems. We supply products to original equipment suppliers, vehicle importers, and distributors which are ready for immediate deployment. Our customers benefit from flexibility and product diversity, with antennas ranging from standard offerings to highly complex, bespoke solutions.
Enabling Car-to-Cloud Connectivity
Vehicles require technology that resists shock, extreme vibration, and high temperatures. We engineered an ethernet solution that enables real-time computing and high speed data transmission – without disruption – for smooth vehicle-to-everything (V2X) interactions.
