Cellular Antenna to be mounted at Side of Building with 25 foot Extension Cables

Posted by Michael Crudele on

We recently had a client reach out to us about a cellular antenna that he wanted to place on the side of his building. He noticed that we had a vehicular antenna, part 170653-000, and wanted something similar to that product. He also informed us that he was looking for a 25-foot cable extension and wanted to receive some recommendations.   Considering part # 170653-000 is a dual cellular product and our assumption that your main concern is to have an antenna outside, we recommend 2 pcs of the Cradlepoint outdoor omnidirectional antenna # 170668-000. Part # 170668-000 is a...

Antenna with UL Type 4X Training

Posted by Michael Crudele on

We recently came in contact with a client that was looking for an antenna with UL Type 4X rating similar to IP67. He claimed that he wanted to mount external antennas on a NEMA box.

In my opinion, if I were putting a router in a NEMA box (I’m assuming we are talking about a cellular router?) I would use the appropriate version of the...

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...
