Signal Improvement Solutions (Cellular)
Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular Router 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.

Pre-Configured Outdoor Cellular Antenna Kits

See below for the most popular LTE antenna kits to boost the signal of your Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular 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-MAX-BR1-100 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-MAX-BR1-100 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-MAX-BR1-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Cellular Repeaters/ Bi-Directional Amplifiers

Because the Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular 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:

LTE Antenna Boosters/ RF Bidirectional Amplifiers/ Repeaters/ Relays

Customize your solution

STEP 1: Your Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular Router operates on these frequency bands: LTE Band 2, LTE Band 4, LTE Band 5, LTE Band 13, LTE Band 17, LTE Band 25. Determine what frequency bands your operator uses here, then click on the frequency band link to view the best rated 4G LTE antennas compatible with the frequency band that both your device and your cellular operator supports.

 

STEP 2: Determine the cable length you need from the outdoor antenna to the Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular 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:

PIGMAX-BR1 (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)
Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular Router includes an antenna port 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 an RPSMA-Female antenna port. To mate this port to an N-Male coaxial cable (or an antenna with an N-Male connector) use an RPSMA-Male to N-Female adapter as below:

Because the Pepwave Max BR1 Cellular 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
