The GNS-1814 tri-sector antenna uses three 120 degree sector antennas. 10ft. total coaxial cable and included lightning arrestor complete the package. We recommend the 3-way splitter in order to connect this setup to a single antenna port on your access point. In order to transmit the farthest possible distance, please use either the GNS-AP570N, or GNS-1460 indoor amplifier, both of which will provide 1000mW TX/RX power. This will provide the highest transmit power to the antenna, which assuming you have LOS to your clients, will give you the farthest range, and signal strength. The 3-Way Combiner shown below, is also recommended in order to combine the 3 antennas to your single antenna connection.
This Wireless Hotspot does not come with any Wireless Access Point. Please choose your Wireless Access Point based on your particular application. If you are unsure about the difference between Access Points, please contact us anytime. For the best signal strength to your customers, please connect this antenna to at least a 500mW Access Point. The stronger the transmit power on the access point, the better performance you will see from the antenna.
This basic Wireless Hotspot Setup is great for the beginner WISP. This package includes everything you need to build your own Wireless Hotspot with friends or neighbors. It also works great if you are trying to extend the coverage of your current indoor or outdoor access point, or router, to provide better coverage to a Marina, Campground or other outdoor venue. Simply connect the cables, Lightning Arrestor, and Antenna to the back of your Access Point or Router, and your ready to go. No configuration necessary.
The antenna should be mounted outdoors, on the roof, preferably about 15 to 20 feet high. Any user that is more then 200feet away and using a low end wireless card, may need to upgrade to a better card before being able to connect to this antenna. For high obtruction applications, wireless repeaters may be required for maximum coverage. The strength of the connection depends on the weakest link between the two devices, please contact us for more details.
The �Tri-Sector Omni' antenna uniquely maintains signal integrity/throughput via interconnect between three of our high performing �Single-Sectors'. All Wifi-Plus antennas provide obstruction penetrating technology. Standard configurations is without the three cables and 3:1 power port divider (splitter). This Unit can be configured with three 12" LMR200 N-male to N-male cables connected to a 3-to-1 power port divider (splitter).
The antenna has the ability to reach users up to 1000 feet away, but the distance depends on the strength of the end user devices. Laptops will generally get a better signal then phones/tablets, and ipads. Wireless repeaters should be added depending on the size, and/or layout of your desired coverage area. This antenna works great for start-up WISP's, small RV-Parks, and small Campgrounds, or Marinas.
If your AP is not in an ideal position in order to meet the 25 foot requirement, please take a look at our Power-over-Ethernet adapters, (POE). We recommend using this antenna with a high power access point that is outdoor rated, and supports POE, so that it can be installed directly behind or underneath the sectorized antenna. Please contact us for more information.
