ePoynt – Outdoor LTE/5G Antenna and Router Enclosure

Jun 22, 2021 | Articles, June 2021, Product News

EPNT-1 & EPNT-2

Poynting is known for its superior outdoor antennas for faster LTE and 5G speed. With this new series of antenna enclosures, you can now integrate your router in the antenna enclosure for a top end solution.  Whether your customers are at the office or working remotely they need to get that extra bit of speed from your connection. The new ePoynt antenna series is designed to give your solutions the edge by housing your LTE or 5G router in the antenna enclosure.

This solution is ideal for any organization or industry that depends on reliable broadband communication like:

  • Commercial, industrial, residential, and urban applications, where reliable LTE/5G reception is required
  • Network operators offering a Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solution
  • Smart Environmental, Water Systems and Utilities M2M & IoT
  • Farming & Agricultural M2M & IoT
  • Oil & Gas communication systems
  • Municipal & Government systems
  • Repeaters & coverage enhancement amplifiers

The ePoynt series has space to house a variety of router modules, transforming the antenna enclosure into a Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). They enclosures can accommodate routers with dimension up to 185 mm x 145 mm x 45 mm.

The current series consist of two enclosures – the ePoynt-1 and 2.  The EPNT-1 is an omni-directional LTE/5G solution, and the EPNT-2 is a directional LTE/5G solution. Both enclosures also have:

  • two dual-band Wi-Fi antennas that cover the 2.4 GHz and 5 -6 GHz Wi-Fi bands for 2×2 MIMO,
  • and a GPS/GLONASS antenna.

More about the LTE/5G Antennas

The ePoynt-1 (EPNT-1) antenna enclosure has four cross-polarised omni-directional cellular antennas with a wideband coverage from 617 – 3800 MHz with a peak gain of 4 dBi

The ePoynt-2 (EPNT-2) antenna enclosure has a cross-polarised, high gain, directional antenna that offers wideband coverage from 698 – 3800 MHz with a peak gain of 11 dBi. Additional to this are two omni-directional antennas, making it ideal for 4×4 MIMO.

The installation of the router within the enclosure has been made easy and simple. The combination of the external antenna with your router within an integrated enclosure results in a self-contained unit. The ePoynt series will offer ultra-low losses between the router and the antenna due to short fly leads. Meaning that the maximum RF signal is transferred between the network base station and the router. This will result in maximum throughput, with lower radio signal fading, and enhanced connection reliability.

The EPNT-1 & EPNT-2 will come standard in the exact same enclosure, giving it an overall size of 264 x 260 x 168 mm³. The antenna has hardware included for wall or pole mounting and comes with suckers for window mounting. The antenna complies with the relevant CE and RoHS standards as stated in our technical sheets. The antenna is also rated for temperatures from -40°C to +70°C and will survive winds of up to 220 km/h with an impact resistance rating of IK 08.
