Signal Improvement Solutions (Cellular)
Cisco 819 LTE Router includes 3 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.

Pre-Configured Outdoor Cellular Antenna Kits

See below for the most popular LTE antenna kits to boost the signal of your Cisco 819 LTE Router. These kits include cables, lightning protection, and all required pigtails/ adapters. If none of these pre-configured kits works for you, see below for customized solutions.

Pre-Configured Antenna Kits
Outdoor Direction Yagi Antenna Kits (RECOMMENDED) with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

12 dBi Directional Yagi Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. Slightly larger than Panel (dimensions: 35" x 9" x 2") but higher gain.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFWY12-C819GW-LTE-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Outdoor Directional Panel Antennas Kits with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

10 dBi Directional Panel Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. More compact than Yagi (dimensions: 26" x 13" x 5") but lower gain.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFWP10-C819GW-LTE-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Outdoor Omnidirection Antenna Kits with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

9 dBi Omni-directional Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. ONLY recommended if have no dominant signal from specific direction.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFW0M9-C819GW-LTE-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Cellular Repeaters/ Bi-Directional Amplifiers

Because the Cisco 819 LTE Router 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:

Customize your solution

STEP 1: Your Cisco 819 LTE Router operates on these frequency bands: LTE B2 (1900 MHz) LTE B4 (1700 MHz) LTE B5 (850 MHz) LTE B13 (700 MHz) LTE B17 (700 MHz) LTE B25 (1900 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 Cisco 819 LTE Router 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:

PIGC819GW-LTE (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.

Signal Improvement Solutions (WiFi)
Cisco 819 LTE Router includes 3 antenna ports to attach external WLAN antennas. See below for different options for high gain and high performance indoor and outdoor antennas to improve the signal strength and indoor coverage.
Pigtails & Connectors for WiFi Antenna Port

This device has 3 RPTNC-Female antenna ports. To mate this port to an N-Male coaxial cable (or an antenna with an N-Male connector) use an RPTNC-Male to N-Female adapter as below:

Because the Cisco 819 LTE Router device has an external antenna port, you could use the high gain external antenna kits above to boost your signal. However, if your access point is very far, or you need to reach a WLAN station that is very far, or you require a very long cable run to get from the antenna mounting location to the device (long runs lead to large signal loss) consider using an WLAN signal bidirectional amplifier the supported WLAN band to extend your WLAn coverage within regulatory limits
