Wireless Antenna Tutorial

What is a Wireless Antenna?
A wireless antenna is the part of a radio communications system that radiates and/or collects radio frequency energy.

How are Wireless Antennas used?
Wireless antennas are typically connected via low loss coaxial cable either to an amplifier, splitter, filter or directly to a wireless access point or router. For outdoor applications wireless antennas are often attached via mounting clamps to a mast or to the side of a building via mounting brackets. Wireless Antennas used indoors are typically ceiling mounted or sometimes mounted high up on a wall.

Where are Wireless Antennas used?
Wireless antennas are used in many environments and for many applications. Models for both indoor and outdoor use are available as well as specialty antennas such as Marine antennas used in nautical applications.

Wireless antennas are used in both commercial and military/government applications including small office /home office (SOHO) networks, Enterprise (office) networks, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) networks, homeland security, factory automation, mining, oil processing , wireless cafe “hotspots”, energy management and control, police, fire and emergency services networks, radio frequency identification (RFID) applications, and industrial science and medical (ISM) networks.

Wireless antennas are used in/on buildings, oil rigs, wind turbines, terrestrial vehicles, boats, aircraft and other mobile and stationary platforms.
