Omni-Directional Antenna

The antenna featured on this page 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.

Excellent Antenna

We�ve been using a Mikrotik Metal AC as a WiFi extender on our sailing catamaran. With the stock antenna, we�ve been able to grab signals on both 2.4 and 5GHz bands. The Poynting Omni 496 is a more robust antenna. So far signal looks great at the marina we are at. We will look forward to more robust tests as we are at anchor and further from land.
