Signal Improvement Solutions (Cellular)
AirLink Raven RV50X LTE Gateway includes 2 antenna ports to attach external cellular antennas. See below for different options for high gain and high performance indoor and outdoor antennas to improve the signal strength and indoor coverage. Additionally, see below for RF bidirectional amplifiers/ distributed antenna systems/ repeaters/ small cells to further improve indoor coverage without directly attaching pigtail/ cable the device.
Pigtail for External Cellular Antenna

Pre-Configured Outdoor Cellular Antenna Kits

See below for the most popular LTE antenna kits to boost the signal of your AirLink Raven RV50X LTE Gateway. If none of these pre-configured kits works for you, see below for manual selection of choice of antenna, cable length, lightning protection, etc.

Pre-Configured Antenna Kits
Outdoor Directional Panel Antennas Kits
10 dBi Directional Panel Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. Includes 50 ft cable and lightning protection, and all required pigtails/ adapters. More compact than Yagi (dimensions: 26" x 13" x 5") but lower gain.

Also available with 20 ft cable RFWP10-RV50X-020 or 100 ft cable RFWP10-RV50X-100 or see below to configure custom solution
Outdoor Direction Yagi Antenna Kits (RECOMMENDED)
12 dBi Directional Yagi Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. Includes 50 ft cable and lightning protection, and all required pigtails/ adapters. Slightly than Panel (dimensions: 35" x 9" x 2") but higher gain.

Also available with 20 ft cable ( RFWY12-RV50X-020 ) or 100 ft cable ( RFWY12-RV50X-100 ) or see below to configure custom solution
Outdoor Omnidirection Antenna Kits
9 dBi Omni-directional Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. Includes 50 ft cable and lightning protection, and all required pigtails/ adapters. ONLY recommended if have no dominant signal from specific direction.

Also available with 20 ft cable ( RFW0M9-RV50X-020 ) or 100 ft cable ( RFW0M9-RV50X-100 ) or see below to configure custom solution
Cellular Repeaters/ Bi-Directional Amplifiers

Because the AirLink Raven RV50X LTE Gateway device has an external antenna port you could use the high gain external antenna kits above to boost your signal. However, if your outdoor signal is very weak, or you require a very long cable run to get from the outdoor antenna to the device (long runs lead to large signal loss) consider using an RF bidirectional amplifier/ repeater suitable for the supported bands and cellular operator to boost your indoor coverage:

LTE Antenna Boosters/ RF Bidirectional Amplifiers/ Repeaters/ Relays

Customize your solution

STEP 1: Your AirLink Raven RV50X LTE Gateway operates on these frequency bands: LTE B1 (2100 MHz) LTE B3 (1800 MHz) LTE B2 (1900 MHz) LTE B4 (1700 MHz) LTE B5 (850 MHz) LTE B7 (2600 MHz) LTE B8 (900 MHz) LTE B12 (700 MHz) LTE B13 (700 MHz) LTE B20 (800 MHz) LTE B25 (1900 MHz) LTE B26 (850 MHz) LTE B29 (700 MHz) LTE B41 (2500 MHz). Determine what frequency bands your operator uses here. Then determine compatible antennas based on what your device supports and what your operator supports here.

 

STEP 2: Determine the cable length you need from the outdoor antenna to the AirLink Raven RV50X LTE Gateway and configure your length here (select N-Male on both ends)

 

STEP 3: Determine if you need a lightning protection device. If you do, you will need a jumper cable.

 

STEP 4: Order the pigtail for your modem below:

PIGRV50X (NOTE: Need this pigtail to connect this device to antenna cable. It is included in preconfigured kits.)

 

STEP 5: If the pigtail's Connector 2 is FME-F you will need an N-Female/FME-F adapter to mate to the N-Male cable in step 2. Alternatively, select an N-Male/FME-M cable in step 2 above (more expensive and less re-usable) to avoid requiring this adapter.
