Poynting Releases Its Latest LTE Antennas

Poynting has recently released their latest Cellular LTE/5G Ready omni-directional antennas that can be used to improve your internet speed whether you are working in the city or require connectivity at sea.

Poynting's new OMNI-402 and the OMNI-600 MIMO omni antennas are based on the very popular marine antenna (OMNI-291), already used by boat owners worldwide. These antennas all share the same physical radiation elements within the antenna enclosure, which result in similar performance characteristics as its single port predecessor that has become so popular in the marine industry.

These Cellular LTE (5G Ready) 2x2 MIMO omni-directional antennas cover the contemporary 698MHz to 2700MHz bands as well as the recently available 450MHz LTE/CDMA band as well as the 3.5GHz LTE/CBRS bands, providing reception capability of the most popular international LTE bands.

For customers that require 4x4 MIMO, the implementation of two of these antennas will offer significant space reduction when compared to four antennas - not to mention the aesthetic advantages.

In the case of upgrading current SISO antennas to MIMO, this saves space onboard or on your building, making it possible to increase your throughput with MIMO capabilities while keeping the same number of antennas and mounting positions as before.

Although both antennas are electrically the same, the OMNI-402 is specifically designed for marine applications and the OMNI-600 targeted at inland environments:

  • The OMNI-600 is designed according to IP65 requirements to prevent water and dust ingress while installed outdoors. This antenna is UV and weather protected and aimed at commercial, industrial, residential and urban implementation.
  • The OMNI-402 is the marine version of the same antenna, boasting IP68 protection against water, making this antenna ideal even in the most severe storms at sea. This marine antenna is also fully salt water protected so that it can be used in highly corrosive environments, including chemical and toxic environments thanks to the SAN Marine ASA radome material. This antenna is marketed to support 410MHz to 2700MHz for marine applications, but also supports the 3400MHz to 3800MHz CBRS frequency band when used inland.


The OMNI-402 marine antenna offers a standard 1"-14TPI marine adaptor in the box. Poynting can optionally provide a standard 1¼"-11TPI marine adapter where these larger mounting points are already installed on the yacht or boat.

The OMNI-600 urban antenna offers a 316-grade stainless steel L-bracket as standard (also provided with the OMNI-402).

Both antennas comply with CE, EN, CSA, RoHS and IEC Standards and are rated for temperatures of -40°C to +80°C and will survive winds of up to 160 km with a rating of IK08 impact resistance.
