Poynting offers a range of antennas that are designed specifically for marine environments where performance, quality, styling and weather protection is critical. This range of antennas is aimed at the luxury yacht market and can also be used in other applications with such harsh environments such as the harbour buildings, smaller boats, etc.
The marine range of antennas are designed within Poynting’s customary requirements of high performance, wide bandwidth and exceptional quality. This range is targeted at LTE and 5G reception at sea, as well as antennas to provide dual-band WiFi distribution at sea. Many of the marine antennas are 5G Ready, where they cover the 450MHz LTE/CDMA bands and/or 3.5GHz LTE/CBRS bands which are starting to become available internationally. With these antennas, the yacht owner will not need to replace or upgrade their antennas to benefit from this new technology and frequency bands.
OMNI-291 & OMNI-400
The OMNI-291 is an existing favourite amongst our European customers and the OMNI-400 favoured by our US customers, due to their slightly tailored performance for the specific regions. Both OMNI-291 and OMNI-400 are wideband LTE antennas with gain characteristics and radiation patterns suitable for marine use; for marine, where high gain may result in severe signal fluctuation at sea and too low gain may result in inefficiency and poor reception – but there is a ‘sweet spot’ to consider. We have designed these antennas optimally for these environments from not only an electrical performance point of view but also from a mechanical & environmental perspective (IP68).
