What is LTE-A, (LTE-Advanced) and LTE+. A short video by Dr Andre Fourie explaining what these are and why you need a BROADBAND MiMo antenna to get the full benefit of using these technologies. More on our Broadband MIMO antennas here: http://poynting.tech/product-category/lte/ Some LTE-Advanced enabled devices (from the FLOW website): Vendor Model Form Factor Apple iPhone… Read More
People sometimes want to paint antennas to camouflage them. Our antennas can be painted as long as you paint it with a paint that contains no metal. Latex paints should work well as do most common spray paints that adhere to plastic. Most paints won’t stick very well to the plastic but once the paint… Read More
To find the best solution to increase throughput and signal speed with an antenna several dimensions should be considered. Indoor / outdoor: If you can mount it, a suitable outdoor antenna can deliver much better performance Directional (panel, LPDA) or omnidirectional antenna: If you are in a remote area where the direction of the next… Read More
Provided that you are within the 3G/LTE signal range a suitable antenna will provide you with higher data rates as your signal to noise ratio is increased, thus a better transfer rate can be achieved. A high gain antenna mounted outside in a fixed position aligned with the relevant base station will give you best… Read More
The antenna offers the opportunity to receive the signal from an outdoor environment which is not prone to the multi-path fading experienced in an indoor environment. There is a 10-20 dB advantage when receiving the signal in an outdoor open space environment as compared to a cluttered indoors. This together with the antenna gain provides… Read More
Most of the antennas manufactured by Poynting are shipped with a connector or bracket that allows you to fasten the antenna to a wall – by drilling holes and fixing the connector to the antenna and the wall or by fitting it to a pole, with a U-clamp that connects around the pole. More information… Read More
There are a multitude of websites and online measurement tools that can track the speed of your connection. Test the speed before installing the antenna and then again after you have connected to the new antenna. That way you will be able to calculate the improvement in connectivity speeds that your antenna has given you.
Most routers and some modems have an antenna connector. You will use a so-called pigtail connector to connect your antenna with the router. If you use a USB modem or something similar that does not have an antenna coupling, you can use a special adapter. Have a look at the Adapter section of the website… Read More
With walls and a lot of clutter inside the house, you would be better served to place the antenna outside of the house. By some calculations your gain in placing the antenna outside the house can be up to 20 dB.
A good high gain mobile antenna will improve the signal to noise ratio, which will help you to get better data rates than was previously possible. Keep in mind that your signal strength is also influenced by other factors, such as the walls and other buildings between you and the signal source, the length and… Read More
