The Hyperlink HG2412SXP-120 spatial diversity antenna is designed with two identical and independent cross polarized antenna arrays fed via (4) connectors. The HG2412SXP-120 provides high gain with a wide 120 degree beam-width making them ideal professional quality "cell site" antennas designed primarily for service providers in the 2.4GHz ISM band. Applications include IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n wireless LAN systems. The HG2412SXP-120 is ideal for use with wireless access points, CPEs and routers that have dual antenna ports and MIMO capabilities.
The spatial diversity feature of this antenna is useful for operating in areas susceptible to the affects of multi-path interference. By providing spatial diversity, the radio's internal circuitry can select between the two receive antennas for better wireless reception. In the case of 802.11n or MIMO, two or more spatially or polarization diverse antennas are required for the radio to operate at its highest data rate.
Cross Polarized - X-Pol
Each of the arrays in HG2412SXP-120 feature two independent antennas with cross polarization. This feature doubles the wireless capacity over the same channels. Each array is fed via two N-Female ports, once for +45 degree polarized and one for -45 degree polarized signals. This feature makes this antenna ideal for polarization diversity systems.
