The HG2458-20P is a high performance multi-band directional flat patch WiFi antenna suitable for indoor and outdoor applications in the 2.4GHz (2400-2500 MHz) and 5.1-5.8 GHz (5150-5850 MHz) band. The Multi-band design of this antenna eliminates the need to purchase different antennas for each frequency. This simplifies installations since the same antenna can be used for a wide array of wireless applications. The HG2458-20P features a heavy-duty UV-stable radome for all-weather operation. It is supplied with a tilt and swivel mast kit which allows installation at various degrees of incline for easy alignment.
Multi Band Operation
The HG2458-20P is actually two antennas in one. A dual element 2.4 GHz antenna and a dual element 5 GHz antenna coupled to a single feed. Since many dual-band 802.11a/b/g radios share a single antenna, the HG2458-20P can split these signals so that the two separate internal 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antennas can be used to improve performance. The HG2458-20P can also receive separate 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signals and combine them into a single feed.
