Learn how to install a set of 5G antennas on a PA-400 Series firewall.
firewall supports four multi-band
antennas. The following procedure describes how to install the to the four antenna
SMA (F) connectors on the firewall.
The antennas must be connected before the
firewall is installed in an equipment rack.
Before installing the firewall, it is recommended that you conduct a cellular
location assessment of the installation site to receive the best signal strength
before installing the device.
If installing the firewall on a wall or on a flat surface, it is recommended that
you orient the antennas upright and slanted slightly outwards, not exceeding 45
degrees, to improve the signal quality.
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.
Adjust the antenna orientation to receive the optimal signal strength in your
Check the signal strength of the firewall by viewing the Cellular LED or by checking the
Firewall Web Interface.
Do not point the antennas towards one another or place them close to one
Ensure that power cables do not cross over the antennas as this can cause
signal quality distortion and antenna performance degradation.
