The Poynting OMNI-493 is a 9dB Omni-directional 5G wideband antenna, designed to cover as many signal frequencies as possible for reliable coverage no matter the location and with CA (Carrier Aggregation). This antenna is built to be robust, with a waterproof and weatherproof IP68-rated design that allows it to excel in marine and coastal environments such as marinas, boats and offshore facilities, even under adverse conditions.

The OMNI-493 is built for reliable long-term use in all possible environments and, consequently, is future proof. It ensures this by covering all current UK frequencies, including the 1427-1517MHz band used by Three, as well as all planned future frequencies - this includes the 617-698MHz band and even the 3400-38000MHz band to be utilised by 5G applications. This guarantees that the OMNI-493 can be relied on to receive a strong mobile signal not just in the UK but anywhere in the world.

The OMNI-493 is a high-performance antenna and maintains a positive dB signal across all frequencies for superior pattern control, something which is only achieved through the use of a new ingenuitive antenna design featuring multiple dipoles and the implementation of a unique patented feed network.

This antenna features an N-Type socket connector for cable connections and comes with a marine-grade mounting bracket (the BRKT-40).

In this episode of A Word from the Wise, Louise and Daniel talk through the Poynting Marine Antenna options available and which antenna would suit your needs best.

4G & 5G Podcast

Video Podcast - Episode 3

Episode 3 covering the acronyms and letters surrounding 4G and 5G and what their meanings are. Where does LTE fit in? What are category classifications and their download speeds? How many antennas on a mobile router? Would you be better off with a higher category 4G router than investing in a 5G router? Steve and Louise also discuss antenna cable and the losses involved with having a too long cable which leads on to conversation about the new Teltonika networking range.

Article - Antenna Choices for your Vehicle, by Louise Barrett

The Solwise antenna range has traditionally contained antennas that have been mounted on a pole or on a wall/building/portable building but in more recent times we are seeing more antennas used on vehicles. These include a wide range of vehicles such as cars, buses, lorries, caravans, motorhomes, boats, barges and even a space agency, an F1 team, mountain rescue teams and a defence contractor have all bought antenna hardware from us so who knows where some vehicle antenna have ended up!
Across our range we offer permanent and temporary solutions for antennas to mount on your vehicle; these antennas cover WiFi solutions and Mobile Data Solutions which means we have something for most situations.

Guest Article - Choosing between a directional or an omni antenna, by Stephen Froneman of Poynting

The choice of omni-directional and directional antenna is not always simple. We will try to explain the key differences experienced by using a uni-directional (aka ‘directional’) antenna vs. an omni-directional (aka ‘omni’) antenna.
Article - IP Ratings Explained, by  Daniel Coombs

Article - IP Ratings Explained

IP ratings, or Ingress Protection ratings, are a standardised benchmark of how capable a product is of withstanding ingress from foreign entities that could negatively impact its functionality. They’re helpful because terms like ‘weatherproof’ and ‘waterproof’ are unspecific terms and don’t always convey the necessary level of detail – waterproof on one device can mean it’s capable of withstanding rain. In contrast, on another device, it can mean being capable of complete submersion in water for extended periods.
