The Puck series of low-profile combination antennas by Poynting offer MIMO cellular and dual-band WiFi support as well as GPS/GLONASS coverage in a small form-factor. This style of antenna is a dome antenna with the cables routed through the base of the antenna. More information on installing these antennas can be found in the Antenna Installation - Low Profile Roof Mounts.
The series comes in several variants but the Puck 5 (5-in-1) appears to be the only model easily available in North America.
All options come in the same low-profile housing designed for transportation and IoT. The antenna comes with a wide variety of mounting options:
- Spigot Mount
- Vertical Pole mount
- Horizontal Pole Mount
- Magnetic Mount
- Surface Mount (Double Sided Tape)
- Wall Mount
Poynting is a South African-based manufacturer of antennas for wireless high-speed data applications for a variety of uses. They offer a diverse product lineup focusing on residential 4G LTE, GSM, IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) use cases. Some of the antennas can be used for mobile applications.

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.
