Extending AP's antenna Outdoor
Wireless signal loses a majority of its strength when penetrating a concrete wall. Therefore, indoor AP has difficulty to makes its signal available outside of the building.
The WAE-509GP allows your AP's antenna to extend outside, mounting on a rooftop or outside wall. This is essential for a community wireless network where the AP will service as the central internet connection hub. Because of its 360 degree coverage, it will ensure the signal will cover the area around the building. However, it is not recommend for building to building bridge use.
The antenna comes with N-Type connector for connection with outdoor AP. To connect with indoor AP's reversed-SMA connector, a RG316-SNF adapter cable and RG213-SNN cable is required.
