Tech Tip- How to mount a WiFi antenna on the side of a building
In some cases it may not be possible to install a WiFi antenna on a standard vertical mast or pole, or depending on your application, you may need to attach a WiFi antenna to the side of a building or structure. L-com offers the HGX-UMOUNT universal antenna mount to address these side of building WiFi antenna installations. In the diagram below two of L-com’s HGX-UMOUNT brackets are connected to a HyperLink ® brand HG2414SP-090 sector antenna. This mounting option will work with sector style antennas that have two (one upper and one lower) mounting points as well as with standard flat panel antennas and Omni antennas using just one HGX-UMOUNT (see diagram below).
