Circularly Polarized (CP) antenna technology offers numerous performance advantages over traditional linear (LP) technologies.
- CP waves “match” any Wi-Fi devices: the orientation of the signal is often random, depending on how the device is being held by the user. CP antennas transmit in all planes, making it more likely for a mobile client device to be able to establish a reliable signal link regardless of the antenna orientation of the device.
- CP waves propagate better: RF signals from different planes react differently depending on the type of material being struck. Because it transmits on all planes, a CP antenna has a higher probability of penetration to deliver a successful, stable link.
- Less destructive interferences with a CP transmitting antenna: CP based systems may incur reflected signals, but the reflected signal is returned in the opposite orientation, largely avoiding conflict with the propagating signal.
- Less multi-path effect when the transmitter and receiver use circularly polarized antennas: lower likelihood of signal cancellation.
