The new CLTM603, a WiFi 6x MIMO ceiling mount Antenna, is designed for 802.11ac networks. The new antenna featured six separate connection ports in order to provide optimum MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) performance for the new WiFi 802.11ac modems.
The antenna provides coverage on both 2.4-2.5 & 4.9-6.0 GHz. This allows the antenna to operate on the 5 GHz band for 802.11ac, but also be backwards compatible for 802.11n and 802.11b/g modems. This antenna is ideally suited not only for 6x MIMO but also for dual 3x MIMO.
The CLTM603 antenna measures only 5.5” (14 cm) in diameter and 2.4” (6 cm) high. It offers 4 dBi gain on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band. These gain levels provide an effective level of wireless coverage for a fixed hotspot.
The antenna gets high marks for its electrical efficiency and for an antenna isolation figure of greater than 20 dB. It is designed to handle up to 20 watts of power.
