Note: The marketing name for this antenna series changed in mid-2020. For example, the "3-V2-15" model is now called the "MIMO-3-15" model. This entry is updated to reflect that change, but some content still uses the older name.
The series comes in multiple versions:
- MIMO-3-12: 2-in-1 ultra wideband 2x2 MIMO cellular including CBRS.
- MIMO-3-13: 3-in-1 ultra wideband 2x2 MIMO cellular (w/ CBRS) plus GPS support.
- MIMO-3-14: 5-in-1 ultra wideband 4x4 MIMO cellular (w/CBRS) plus GPS support.
- MIMO-3-15: 5-in-1 ultra wideband 2X2 MIMO cellular (w/ CBRS), 2x2 MIMO WiFi (dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz), plus GPS support.
- MIMO-3-17: 7-in-1 ultra wideband 4x4 MIMO cellular (w/ CBRS), 2x2 MIMO WiFi (dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz), plus GPS support.
All the variations come in the same low-profile fin-shaped housing, with a flexible hole or mag-mount options.
