Difference between Part # RDA698/2700SSM and RDA698/2700-1-SSM

Posted by Michael Crudele on

Q) What is the difference between part numbers RDA698/2700SSM and RDA698/2700-1-SSM?


A) Firstly, I want to pose a question. Will you need to pass any carrier certification testing for your device? If you do need a certification, it leads me to the main difference between the two antennas. Part # RDA698/2700SSM does not have a high enough “efficiency” to pass the testing that AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint require. On the other hand, part # RDA698/2700-1-SSM is recommended if you plan on receiving a carrier certification. This antenna costs a bit more but will easily pass the carrier test for all brands. Below you will find a difference in the construction of each antenna.
