Motorola products are compatible with each other and what accessories may be required to complete the
system. A Motorola representative or sales partner can also help you determine the best configuration for
your installation.
NOTE: Illustrations displayed in this guide are samples and can differ from the actual
antenna.

Antenna Selection and Description
1.1 Antenna Selection
While several antennas may work in a given environment, some will provide better coverage than others.
Using the right antenna in the right location will maximize both the performance and coverage of your
network. Understanding the key characteristics that describe how an antenna sends and receives radio
frequency signals is critical to finding the ideal antenna for your deployment. This guide supports the
antennas used for an AP-5131 model access point and an AP300 (external antenna) model access port.
Motorola Enterprise Wireless LAN products operate in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ISM bands allocated for
unlicensed use. Access point and access port products available today support either the 802.11b/g or the
802.11a standard, or both (with new 802.11n support planned in 2008). Wireless devices conforming to the
802.11b/g standard operate in the 2.4 GHz ISM band, while 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz band. The
antennas in this guide are grouped according to the frequency band they support. Some antennas are
designed to operate on either band. These antennas (described as "Dual-band") may be connected to radios
operating in either the 2.4 or 5 GHz bands, although a single antenna may not be connected to two radios at
the same time.
1.2 Antenna Selection Criteria
In addition to antenna frequency, there is other criteria to consider when selecting an antenna for your
AP-5131 or AP300 (external antenna) model access port.
1.2.1 Antenna Pattern
1.2.1.1 Omni-Directional
Signal radiates from the antenna in all directions on the horizontal plane.
1.2.1.2 Directional
Signal radiates in a specific direction, typically described as a beam of given width, expressed in degrees in
the horizontal and vertical plane. For more information, see Azimuth 3dB Beamwidth on page 1-3 and
Elevation 3dB Beamwidth on page 1-3.
1-2 Enterprise LAN Antenna Specification Guide
1.2.2 Antenna Type
1.2.2.1 Panel
A panel antenna is a flat antenna mounted to a wall or other vertical surface and radiates RF energy (radio
waves) directionally away from the wall. They usually have gain greater than 5 dBi and are not suitable for
omni-directional situations. Ideally suited for long hallways.
1.2.2.2 Patch
A patch antenna is a flat antenna mounted on the ceiling but whose pattern is omni-directional. Most of the
energy goes out horizontally to the sides of the antenna and equal in all directions.
1.2.2.3 Dipole
A dipole antenna is a tubular antenna that can be either a pipe shape, a straight flexible rod or a paddle. This
antenna has an omni-directional pattern when placed in a vertical position. It usually has 2 dBi of gain.
1.2.2.4 Dipole Array
Essentially a dipole, a dipole array is two or more dipoles that are placed one on top of the other, requiring
a longer tube to hold them. The advantage of a dipole array is that it has higher gain.
1.2.2.5 Parobolic Grid
A paraobolic grid antenna is a very directional, dish-like antenna. Its parabolic reflector focuses the RF
energy like a flashlight. Most of the time the radiating element is a dipole, but when combined with the dish,
it becomes very directional with gain up to 24 dBi. Usually used in long point-to-point systems.
1.2.2.6 Yagi
A yagi antenna is a antenna that has an internal structure resembling that of typical antennas used for TV
reception (a series of rods perpendicular to a main rod, making a triangular shape). This is a directional
antenna with less gain than the PGA, typically around 13 dBi. It may be used in either point-to-point
situations, or to cover a very long, narrow area in point-to-multi-point situations.
1.2.3 Antenna Performance Characteristics
1.2.3.1 Frequency
The frequency band within which the antenna performs at the stated specifications
1.2.3.2 Gain (dBi)
The relative amplification of the antenna with respect to an equivalent isotropic antenna, expressed on the
decibel logarithmic scale.
1.2.3.3 Cable loss (dB)
The signal strength loss introduced by the cable connected to the antenna expressed on the decibel
logarithmic scale.
1.2.3.4 Net gain (dBi)
The resulting amplification of the antenna paired with its cable.
Antenna Selection and Description 1-3
1.2.3.5 Polarization
The orientation of the electrical field which the antenna is optimized to receive. If the transmitting and
receiving antennas are both linear polarized, then turning one 90° so that they are cross polarized will reduce
the range significantly.
1.2.3.6 VSWR
Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) is the ratio of maximum voltage to minimum voltage along the line.
Expresses the degree of match between the transmission line and the terminating element (antenna). When
VSWR is 1:1 the match is perfect, a VSWR of 1.5:1 corresponds to 96% power efficiency.
1.2.3.7 Azimuth 3dB Beamwidth
Width of the antenna beam on the horizontal plane expressed in degrees.
1.2.3.8 Elevation 3dB Beamwidth
Height of the antenna beam on the vertical plane expressed in degrees.
1.3 Antenna Accessories for Motorola Enterprise WLANs
Motorola offers a complete selection of antennas and accessories to ensure optimal coverage and
performance for 802.11a/b/g wireless LANs. Regardless of the size or layout of your environment, from a

1.3.1 Choosing the Right Antenna and accessories for your WLAN
It is important to consider a number of factors when choosing an antenna and accessories for your Motorola
enterprise WLAN. To choose the right components, you'll need to know:
• Where you will be installing the antenna, and what type of coverage you will require
• In which band (802.11b/g or 802.11a) your network operates
• Which Motorola AP you plan to use
• Whether you will be deploying the network indoors or outdoors
• The distance between AP and antenna, to determine extender cable length, if any
Review the Product Compatibility chart to determine which antennas suit your needs. Using the part numbers
provided, determine which of the antennas will work with your hardware in your environment.
1-4 Enterprise LAN Antenna Specification Guide
Product Compatibility
To find the right antenna and accessories for your AP-5131 or AP300 (external antenna) deployment:
• Find your Motorola access point or access point model at the top of the chart (refer to the chart on the
following page). Follow that column down to find the antennas, cables and lightning arrestors
compatible with that model access port or access point. Write those part numbers down.
• Follow the row antenna across the table to the columns for the lightning arrestors and cables you wrote
down to confirm that they compatible with the antenna you've chosen and determine if an adaptor is
required to connect the two selected parts.
