RFI SW1486 3dBi Magnetic Base Mobile/M2M Antenna


Key Features


  • Roof/enclosure top mounting for optimum performance

  • Ideal integrated antenna for ICS, M2M devices

  • Black finish will not scratch or peel

  • Ground independent

  • Limited lifetime warranty.




  • Indoor & Urban M2M Environments - this low gain 3dBi Telstra Next-G antenna is designed for operation of cellular devices in highly multipath environments, such as indoor and urban environments

  • The wide vertical and omnidirectional horizontal radiation patterns allow your receiver to pick up heavily varied transmission paths

  • Buildings, walls, and other obstructions create a multipath propagation environment - transmissions that bounce off walls or trees at an acute angle cause signal echos

  • Having travelled a further distance than a straight line transmission, these signals are delayed, and to a simple receiver would be nothing more than interference. However thanks to clever technology used in cellular communications, multipath signals can recovered by your modem's RAKE combiner

  • A RAKE receiver consists of a series of sub-radios which read the incoming signal at different delay periods (typically one chip in WCDMA) and then combined to result in a higher quality signal

  • Roof mount antennas are recommended by system operators, mobile manufacturers and system designers as they provide the strongest reception and most reliable performance of any cellular mobile antenna

  • At the heart of each RFI SW1486 antenna is the MB14 base

  • The base (SW1486) is intricately constructed, much like a coaxial connector

  • The precisely controlled termination is reliable electrically and mechanically provides a superb match resulting in a broad bandwidth.
