Signal Improvement Solutions (Cellular)
Peplink Max BR1 Single LTE Advanced 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.

Cellular Repeaters/ Bi-Directional Amplifiers

Because the Peplink Max BR1 Single LTE Advanced 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: Determine what frequency bands your operator uses here, then click on the frequency band link to view the best ranked cellular antennas compatible with the frequency band that both your device and your cellular operator supports. Your Peplink Max BR1 Single LTE Advanced Router operates on these frequency bands: LTE Band 1, LTE Band 2, LTE Band 3, LTE Band 4, LTE Band 5, LTE Band 7, LTE Band 8, LTE Band 12, LTE Band 13, LTE Band 20, LTE Band 25, LTE Band 26, LTE Band 29, LTE Band 30, LTE Band 41.

 

STEP 2: Determine the cable length you need from the outdoor antenna to the Peplink Max BR1 Single LTE Advanced 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:

 

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.

Because the Peplink Max BR1 Single LTE Advanced 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 other Wi-Fi signal extension solutions as indicated below.
