Poynting and Solwise
We have been supplying antenna from Poynting for over 10 years and they have become a very well respected brand in the UK and Europe in that time. Their XPOL1 4G Omni antenna is actually our best selling product and one we have had on the books since 2013; in this day and age that is a long time for a product lifespan in the tech industry.
Poynting are one of our key brands, their 3G and 4G antenna range compliment the Teltonika range of routers nicely and as we head into the new period of 5G offerings the new XPOL2-5G is proving very popular too along with the PUCK2 and PUCK5. We don't have the whole Poynting range on our website however if you see something they offer but we currently don't do get in touch as we can easily source it for you. We often do special order items for resellers and customers and the lead-times are generally pretty good. Poynting offers a great range of quality antenna including specialist items for tunnels, mining, vehicles, marine all over 3G, 4G, 5G and WiFi frequencies. Poynting offers a good selection of specialist brackets for their antenna too along with cables to complete the set-up.
