Review: MIMO Antenna by Urant (Cellular Antennas) Copy

Urant's MIMO antenna with 2 TS-9 connectors works for 4G (only) signal enhancing of a cellular mobile hotspot device with two antenna ports.

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 has two plugs that can go directly into a device with TS-9 ports (typically used on mobile hotspots like JetPacks and MiFis).

Suction desk / flat surface mount through single suction cup. No tricky roof installation needed. It's portable and rated for indoor use.

Thoughts & Analysis

Favorite Features:

  • Affordable
  • Directional aiming focuses the gain for maximum performance
  • Hardly any installation needed - bring it out only when needed
  • TS-9 connectors built in, designed to plug directly into mobile hotspots (minimal signal loss)
  • Portable - you can take it with you in a backpack, purse or briefcase

Potential Downsides:

  • 4G Only
  • Directional means you'll need to do a little trial and error at each stop to find the optimal window to place this in.
  • Suction cups easily fall off when moving around.
  • Only works on devices with dual TS-9 antenna ports, which are primarily mobile hotspots (our top pick 7730L, AC791L, Unite Explore, Unite Pro and Sprint Fuse will all work with this.)
  • If your windows are coated with a metal based film (for privacy, heat reflection, etc.) - this could block the signal. In this case, having the antenna on the inside of the window would see little to no gain.

Device Compatibility

This antenna will only work on devices with dual TS-9 antenna ports - and only for the 4G network. Popular mobile hotspot models that include these ports are:

To check to see if other models have dual antenna ports, check our Mobile Hotspot Review Center and click the search button for 'Dual Antenna Ports'.

If your device does not have antenna ports, then antenna only options will not work - cellular boosters are the best option in this case. If your device only has a single antenna port (such as the Verizon 6620L), this antenna may work with just one cable plugged in - but be sure to experiment as both the hotspot and the antenna tend to have 'primary' and 'secondary' connections. You'll probably be better off using a single antenna option.

Smartphones do not tend to have consumer accessible antenna ports anymore, and thus will need a booster to enhance their signal.
