Telco XPOL MIMO Industrial Class Solid Dish 4G Antenna
- Dual-polarised antenna feed with high isolation
- Industrial grade high precision 0.6 m dish
- Ultra high F/B ratio
- Two low PIM N Female connectors
- 17.5 to 19.0 dBi gain across 1800 and 2100 MHz bands.
This heavy duty solid dish antenna has been specifically designed by Telco for operation on 4G LTE MIMO networks. This antenna has an incredibly low VSWR and <-130 dBc PIM making it not only the ideal antenna for commercial and industrial 4G applications, but also suitable for broadcast and carrier applications. With a heavy duty design, the key to this antennas unmatched performance on 4G networks is the solid dish and microwave-class feedhorn element. The finely machined 0.6 m parabolic reflector provides a dead stable main lobe, with sidelobe interference being effectively eliminated with its -32 dB typical F/B ratio. This is extremely important as a cleaner signal will allow the modem to negotiate a more complex (and faster) method of modulation. The 17 dBi gain was chosen to maintain a beamwidth above 15 degrees to permit operation in non line of sight applications.
Is this antenna for me?
While designed for commercial and industrial applications, this antenna suits a wide variety of 4G applications from high speed broadband in city areas, remote and rural farming properties, to linking island communities back to mainland. As with any high gain antenna, this product is designed for operation where the antenna beam is clear from obstructions for the first 50-100 m of the link. The tight beamwidth assists in minimising sidelobe interference however it also reduces performance in highly multipath areas (i.e. where signal is scattered around buildings and dense bushland) and accordingly lower gain antennas may be more suitable.

[collapse title="Engineer Certified"] This antenna has been laboratory tested in a certified 3D Anechoic Chamber. All electrical specification and performance listed has been produced from real-world test data, and not the product of computer simulation.
"From the position shown we have line of sight to the Telstra tower (19 km) and to the office complex (500m). Using the Telco 4G MIMO dish antenna my Netcomm NTC 140W modem reports a signal strength of -55 dB. We achieved some variation in speeds with the best results being 42 M down and 23 M up."
What connection does this antenna have?
This antenna has short SF141 tails with an N Female connectors for attaching thick 4G-rated extension cables (e.g. LMR400).
