AirLink RV50 Antennas & Signal Boosters

How To Improve The Cellular Signal To The AirLink RV50 LTE Gateway

There are several different ways to improve cellular reception to your AirLink RV50 LTE Gateway for faster Internet speeds. You can boost the reception of your device with an external antenna or powered signal booster. Adding an external to will improve cellular reception which will improve data transfer speeds. Adding a powered cellular signal booster will improve reception even more.

We offer several options to boosting AirLink RV50 cell reception:

  • Add an External Antenna - directly connected to the router
  • Add an Power Booster With External Antenna
  • Use a Signal Booster Repeater System - Covers multiple devices over a larger area - Home, Office, Large Buildings.

The AirLink RV50 has an antenna connector (SMA Female) on the rear of the unit. Attaching a cellular antenna to the the RV50 requires an antenna cable ending in a SMA Male.

Attach External Antenna

To attach an external antenna to the router you'll need an antenna and cable going between the Raven and external antenna.

Mounting External Antenna

Ideally, you want to place the external antenna where the cellular signal from your service provider is best. It is usually better to mount the antenna outdoors if possible. Directional antennas should be permanently mounted pointing directly towards then nearest service provider's tower. An excellent antenna for 4G frequencies is the Wilson Wide Band Directional Antenna (below).

CABLE: When selecting cable, match up connectors to the router (SMA) and the antenna (FME or N Type). The use of the screw on adapters "SMA Male/FME Male Adapter 971119" or "SMA Male / N Female Adapter" see product listing below) may be required.

Adding An External Antenna & Power Booster

You can also add a cellular signal booster between the external antenna and the RV50 for a stronger signal than antenna alone. Consider the WilsoPro Signal 3G for 3G signal areas or WilsonPro Signal 4G for both 3G and 4G areas.

Cellular Repeater Type Systems

Another solution to improving the signal strength is to use a cellular repeater type signal booster system. These systems take the available signal outside, amplify it, then rebroadcast the signal inside. These systems do not require a direct connection to your device. They also have the added value of being able to boost the signal to other devices in the area. We list it and several different options below.
