How to Peplink: Getting the Best Out of Your Peplink Antennas

''Choosing the right series for your wireless connectivity needs''

Why do you need an antenna?

An antenna is used in combination with a router connect with the internet wirelessly. The antenna converts electric signals into radio-frequency power and vice versa. To transmit and receive clear signals between multiple wireless points, you need the optimal antenna on the road, at sea or from a static point. Antennas are of utmost importance for cellular deployment. Mainly, there are two types of antennas, Directional and Omnidirectional.

Directional antennas are primarily used for stationary installations. They focus weak signals in remote or crowded locations with a lot of noise such as residential, offices, fixed installation IoT devices and utilities. This type of antenna transmits and receives signals from a specific direction.

On the other hand, Omnidirectional antennas cover 360º of the area, like a donut. This type of antenna is mainly used for mobile applications to increase signal strength and quality under any conditions. For instance, in a ferry of RV.

Mobility series Explained

Mobility series Explained

As the name suspects of the mobility series, these Peplink antennas are ideally suited for mobile situations, so omnidirectional. These 5G-ready antennas IP68 rated and UV proof to protect from dust, water, and the sun so you can use it even in poor weather conditions. The antennas support extended bandwidth range, including B71. With 7dBi High Gain they have an increased signal strength for a stronger connection and less interference.

There are 5 different models with 2, 4 or no cellular channels, with our without 2 Wi-Fi channels and with or without High Gain LNA GPS.

The antennas with 4 cellular channels are most suitable for large scale deployments that need more heavy network usage. Where the antennas with 2 channels are most suitable for small scale public safety, mobile healthcare, and transportation connectivity. The Mobility 02 with only Wi-Fi channels is ideal for maintaining a strong signal strength when various obstructions may weaken or block Wi-Fi signals.

Maritime series Explained

The Peplink Maritime antennas are 5G-ready High Gain omnidirectional antennas. They are designed for long range with increased signal strength for a stronger connection and less interference. The harsh conditions at sea clearly make it mandatory that the antennas be able to withstand these weather conditions.

With the Maritime series, you have a choice of three antennas with 1, 2 or 4 cellular channels and the option for GPS.

The Maritime 20G and 40G are suitable for maritime applications and fixed land installations and are perfect when there is a need to support connectivity to several cellular towers located in different locations.

The Maritime 10 not only has most features of the 20G and 40G, but also a higher gain, which can reach 9.3dBi. Despite its relatively small size, this antenna enables extra long-range reception. It is suitable when you want ultra-reliable signal reception.

IoT Antenna Explained

IoT Antenna Explained

Peplink's IoT antenna is the only outdoor directional antenna. This makes it perfect for static locations that need a 5G-ready, IP66 Rated, UV Proof, 10dBi High Gain antenna. The antenna has a wide frequency range supporting LTE and 5G bands (600-6000MHz). Ideal application for the IoT 20G are Remote Sites, Public Safety and Mission Critical Connectivity, Event Connectivity and LTE/5G Office Connectivity.


Peplink has made it as easy as possible to find the right antenna for your situation by classifying everything into different series. In addition, the numbers and single letters in the name always correspond which and the amount of channels available in the antenna. Frontier BV is the official European Stocking partner for antennas and with our technical expertise we can assist you with finding the right antenna.
