The Poynting XPOL-1-V2 is a cross-polarised omni-directional LTE antenna. Its robust IP65-rated design makes it extremely resistant to harsh external conditions and its radiations patterns are well-controlled to spread itself as evenly as possible while supporting a wide variety of UK frequency bands, as well as being 5G-ready.
The XPOL-1-V2 is available in two variations: the standard V2-21 and the more expensive V2-41. The V2-21 is a 2x2 MIMO antenna, meaning it acts as two antennas built into one and comes with two separate antenna cables for two streams of data. Conversely, the V2-41 is a 4x4 MU-MIMO antenna that acts as four antennas built into, supporting four antenna cables for four separate data streams. A 4x4 antenna such as the V2-41 can therefore, theoretically, achieve double the performance of a 2x2 antenna like the V2-21, although only when used with a 4x4 LTE router which could support the four data streams.
The V2-21 XPOL is a 2X2 MIMO device, whereas the V2-41 XPOL is a 4X4 MIMO device. This refers to how many data streams each antenna can support simultaneously, which essentially boils down to their maximum concurrent data bandwidth. 2X2 devices like the V2-21 contain two antennas, each supporting their own data streams, and 4x4 antennas like the V2-41 contain four antennas for four data streams. Most mobile LTE routers only have support for two data streams, so the V2-41 won't be necessary in most cases unless a 4x4 router is used with support for four LTE data streams.
If you're planning to use the XPOL-A0001 for your mobile solution, consider upgrading to the 5G XPOL-1-V2-21 instead. This allows you to future-proof your network and achieve faster speeds from both the 700MHz and 3400MHz frequency bands.
