The Poynting 2-in-1 omni-directional roof antenna is a compact antenna designed to be mounted externally primarily for vehicle applications. The MIMO-3-V2-12 consists of a 2-in-1 antenna system within a single housing, providing 2x Cellular MIMO performance in a compact housing that has various mounting options.
The 2x Cellular MIMO antennas (for 2G/3G/4G) covers the contemporary 690MHz to 2700MHz bands, as well as the new emerging LTE and 5G spectrum for 450MHz and 3.5GHz CBRS bands, which is becoming popular across the various international cellular network operators for LTE. This antenna, due to its wideband capabilities, can be used across different operators and technologies and is ready for future cellular technologies such as 5G up to 3.8GHz. Additional specifications are located under the documentation tab.
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.
The antennas on this page do not require a ground plane, but adding one will typically improve performance if your installation will allow it. Ground planes are metal sheets of metal (typically aluminum or galvanized steel) that the antenna mounts on top of. For optimal performance a ground plane of a minimum of 16" in diameter is typically recommended. The ground plane does not need to be grounded or wired to the chassis ground of the vehicle, the metal sheet simply helps the cellular and WiFi signals bounce into the antenna optimizing performance. Ground planes are available in various sizes on our store including a flexible adhesive ground plane or a 16 inch aluminum ground plane. For more information on ground planes visit the Ground Plane Guide on Mobile Internet Resource Center.
This device is FirstNet Ready! FirstNet is the nationwide public safety communications platform dedicated to America's first responders. Being built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority, FirstNet utilizes Band-14, which is reserved for public safety but is also being marketed as available to the public for additional bandwidth capacity. In testing Band-14 has been made available during non-emergency situations to the public to provide additional bandwidth and coverages to customers who have a modem that supports FirstNet's Band-14. Not all modems that support Band-14 are "FirstNet Certified" however they typically can connect to Band-14 in most areas. Information on FirstNet certifications can be found on Specification sheets located on the Documentation Tab. Additional information about FirstNet's use and technology can be found in this article from our friends at the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center.

Great quality, this antenna is an absolutely upgrade over everything I've purchased even for similar money. I had my doubts about going to a non directional Mimo, but wanted more of a set and forget for arriving at boondocking spots. Luckily my home base is LTE Challenged, and this antenna is performing as good or better with limited cell as a manually aimed high gain mimo panel.My intuition, from installing this, is this is finally equipment that is built and tested as it claims to be. And the design thought into the mounting is impressive. I love this thing.
