Huawei E5186 4G WiFi Router Patch Lead
Connect your modem (SMA) to an external antenna (FME) - 15cm of RG316 cable
Helps boost signal strength and speed of your 4G LTE device
The Optus E5186 mobile broadband router has two antenna sockets for MIMO
When operating in a 4G area it is important to use a MIMO antenna or dual antennas.
Why use an external antenna?
Next time you're out-and-about look around you - every day thousands of Australians use external antennas to enjoy fast, uninterrupted wireless broadband internet
If you're in a rural, hilly, low signal area, or you can't get a good signal indoors, there's no need to tear your hair out over slow mobile broadband crashing or dropping out half way, when an external antenna is often all you need.
What does a patch lead do?
Most antenna cables terminate with a standard connection, most commonly a female 'FME' connector
To plug an antenna into your phone or wireless modem, you need a short cable that acts as a conversion from the FME connector to the device-specific connector that will plug into the antenna port on your device.
