KP Performance Antennas, a manufacturer of wireless network antennas, released a new 4-port OMNI antenna for WISP, cellular and fixed wireless applications.
KP’s new 4-port, slant-polarized antenna delivers “true OMNI performance in a small form factor package” according to Ken Izatt, Antenna Product Line Manager. Izatt said this 27-inch OMNI antenna limits the tower footprint and provides 360-degree coverage with 13 dBi pre-beamforming antenna gain, making it ideal for micro-pop deployments.
It also optimizes 4×4 MU-MIMO’s full capabilities with the Cambium ePMP3000, using the antenna’s two overlapping bidirectional dipole-like pattern. These patterns provide high gain to maximize coverage area and low side lobes to improve isolation between MIMO chains.
The new antenna includes a Cambium ePMP3000 radio mount with an aluminum cover that protects the radio and cables from the environment. Also included are 4 x Reverse Polarity SMA to N-Male LMR 195 6-inch cables. Depending on the radio and terrain, operators can expect coverage to span within 2-5 miles of the antenna. This antenna will stand up to the harshest elements with a UV-resistant PVC radome and robust hardware, according to KP.
“Our new 4-port OMNI antenna is a stand out product with a small form factor design, optimized for the Cambium Networks ePMP3000 access point to provide a cost effective, high gain, single antenna solution for small cell and macro deployments,” said Izatt.
