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 Wi-Fi (dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz), plus GPS support.
- MIMO-3-17: 7-in-1 ultra wideband 4x4 MIMO cellular (w/ CBRS), 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi (dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz), plus GPS support.
All the variations come in the same low-profile fin-shaped housing, with flexible hole or mag-mount options.

Cellular antennas can be a vital part of your signal enhancing strategy to get a better signal, and thus better cellular data performance. They come in many shapes, sizes and varieties.
They can be used directly connected to your mobile hotspots or cellular embedded routers, or they might connect to your cellular booster. They come in omni-directional vs directional, single vs MIMO, and might support different frequency bands. They come in combination antennas with Wi-Fi and GPS.
But most importantly, is your installation options on your RV or boat.
So before choosing an antenna, be sure to understand all of these variables - and keep in mind that there likely isn't a single 'one size fits all' solution here. You may need to make compromises, or even have speciality antennas for challenging signal areas.
