EE Adopts WMM8G for Rapid Site

“The WMM8G is designed to be quick to install and offers several mounting configurations, making it convenient and versatile component.”

01

The Challenge

EE’s Rapid Site connects remote or temporary locations with EE’s superfast 4G broadband. Rapid Site is the optimal solution for sites where IT is integral to operations, providing a data connection when it is needed the most.

As the hardware for the Rapid Site needed to be able to deploy quickly and reliably, providing an antenna solution was no easy task. In addition to requiring a fast installation time, finding a high performance antenna that could be quickly deployed and withstand the elements once installed was a challenge in itself.

The Antenna

The WMM8G is a high directional gain 2 x 2 MiMo antenna for 2G, 3G and 4G networks. The rugged, weather resistant housing contains two separately fed wideband elements that offer 6dBi peak gain 698-960MHz and 9dBi peak gain at 1710-2700MHz.

This antenna can be mounted either directly onto a wall or on a mast with the supplied brackets, allowing a more diverse range of options for mounting the antenna to ensure optimal signal. The WMM8G is built to ensure a stable network link for network operators with improved data rates. This makes it ideal for both permanent and temporary applications where a reliable point-to- point connection is paramount.
