MIMO (Multiple In Multiple Out) is the use of more than one antenna to increase signal performance. All LTE devices internally have at least two antennas to take advantage of this technology. This antenna is designed with two antennas inside it's panel case, and then had two plugs that can go directly into a device with TS-9 ports (typically used on mobile hotspots like JetPacks and MiFis).
Simply mount with the included suction cups to a window most closely facing the cellular tower you're connected to, or use the included clips to attach to the screen of a laptop. No tricky roof installation needed. And then plug in the two connectors to your Jetpack, MiFi or hotspot device's TS-9 ports.
It's portable and rated for indoor or outdoor use.

We have tested the TS-9 Netgear MIMO version of this antenna, which we are presuming is of near enough specification. We do not intend to specifically purchase this antenna for testing.

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.
