The Poynting Omni 296 WiFi Medium Gain WiFi Antenna is a low cost WiFi specific antenna that is suitable for outdoor deployments and pole mount applications. Compliant with IEEE 802.11b/g/n ad 802.11AC wireless standards. This antenna covers the 3.5Ghz CBRS band for future 5G applications. IP 65 Vandal and water-resistant enclosure. See documentation tab for additional information.
Note this antenna requires Type N Male to RP-SMA Male cables for most mobile router installations.
This antenna is an omni-directional antenna. Omni-directional antennas are designed to pick up signals in a 360-degree pattern around the antenna and do not require that they be aimed or pointed at the cellular or WIFI broadcasting tower. Omni-directional antennas offer a blend of performance and ease of use over directional antennas that may have higher performance and gain specifications. Omni-directional antennas also perform well if a customer is utilizing multiple cellular or WIFI connections that may be broadcasting in different directions, for example if a customer has data plans from multiple cellular providers and cell towers are in different directions. Omni-directional antennas are the preferred style of antenna for mobile travelers and those who change their location and method of connecting to the internet frequently as they offer solid performance without the need to point the antenna.
Directional antennas may be better suited than omni-directional antennas for customers with fixed locations such as rural home or business customers.

I wanted to thank you for the support you provided at the time we were setting up the equipment in the coach. We sort-of got cut short at the end and traveling out of Albuquerque back to Callie and with the holiday craziness I never got back to you to thank you properly! You were always on my mind however. Your assistance was what made the whole installation process as smooth as could be expected! So thank you so very much! Your customer relations are exemplary and I just have to tell you that. Please share this review on your store.
