Can an 3G antenna be repurposed for 4G/5G boosting?

Heya! The topic is self-explanatory, here’s the antenna in question:


Also, if I were to plug it to RUTX50, which SMA connector that would be? :sweat_smile:

Hello,

The antenna in question covers only a very small frequency range of 1.9 GHz to 2.1 GHz. In contrast, 4G, as well as 5G, usually covers frequencies from ~700 MHz to 3.5 GHz. With this antenna, only B1/n1 band would receive optimal coverage. This could greatly affect the performance of RUTX50.
Additionally, the aforementioned antenna only operates in SISO configuration (has 1 wire), thus all benefits of MIMO available on the RUTX50 would be lost.
I’d suggest exploring other options from us or our partners. If a directional antenna is necessary, Poynting or QuWireless offers a lot of great antennas compatible with RUTX50. More information about third-party antennas can be found here: Third-party Antennas - Teltonika Networks Wiki

Best regards,
