EDMONTON, Alberta – KP Performance Antennas in Edmonton, Alberta, is introducing the KP-5HVX8-65 34-inch-tall multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) sector antenna for wireless Internet service provider (WISP) applications.

The KP-5HVX8-65 antenna operates in the popular 5 GHz band, and features eight inputs and HV-polarization. It offers dual-horizontal/vertical-polarization with a 65-degree azimuth beam width and eight ports, all within one 34-inch radome.

It delivers high gain over a bandwidth of 4.9 GHz to 6.4 GHz with as much as 17.5 dBi gain at 5.9 GHz. The antenna comes with a universal adjustable bracket with wide U-bolts for mounting on poles or tower legs as thick as 3.5 inches in diameter.

This sector antenna has eight 5 GHz ports with co-located patterns all facing in the same direction. Connecting two four-port radios provides additional redundancy and can help increase capacity by using separate channels on each radio.

Pairing the sector with two of Mimosa's A5C four-port radios provides an additional +2 dBi beamforming gain, which allows for long shots with Mimosa's high client speeds. Four of these antennas mounted to a tower provides complete 360-degree coverage which can be increased to six antennas for more dense applications.
