Install Antennas

The ION 1200-C-NA, ION 1200-C-ROW, and ION 1200-C-5G-WW devices support multi-band antennas which can be easily secured to the device. The ION 1200-C-NA and ION 1200-C-ROW have three antenna SMA (F) connectors. The ION 1200-C-5G-WW has four antenna SMA (F) connectors.

  1. Secure the antennas to the SMA connectors located at the corners of the device.
    Rotate the antennas at 180-degree movement about the SMA connectors. Tighten the antennas by hand.
  2. Adjust the antenna orientation to receive optimal signal strength in your environment.
    It is recommended to conduct a cellular location assessment of the site to receive best signal strength before installing the ION device.
    Position the antennas to receive optimal cellular signal strength. Check the signal strength on the ION device by viewing the Cellular LED signal strength indicator or on the Prisma SD-WAN web interface.
    Do not place the antennas close to, or pointing to one another, or layover one another.
    Make sure the power cables do not cross over the antennas to avoid signal quality distortion and antenna performance degradation.
    When installing the ION on a wall or a desktop, it is recommended to orient the antennas upright and slanted slightly outwards, not exceeding 45 degrees, to improve the signal quality.
