The Altelix AC2458G3M2 Dual-Band 2-Port 2x2 MIMO Ceiling Antenna provides wide omnidirectional coverage in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously with a downward radiation pattern optimized in-building use. This antenna contains two individual antennas with separate connections, and each port supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Spatial diversity provides optimal multipath performance for maximum range and throughput. The AC2458G3M2 features a sleek low-profile white radome which blends in with the typical commercial office environment. It is designed to mount directly through a small hole in a drop ceiling tile and no backing plate is required. It can also be attached to a fixed ceiling or other structure using an optional bracket. The antenna is also suitable for outdoor use provided it is mounted in a dry location. As an added feature the antenna cables are 24 inches (60 cm) long and a number of standard and customized connector options are available, eliminating the need for additional radio "pigtail" cables for many installations.
