Overview
Overview
Deciding which antenna to use involves many factors such as coverage area, maximum distance, indoor
location, outdoor location, and antenna height.
When antennas are used indoors, the building construction, ceiling height, and internal obstructions must
be considered. In outdoor environments, obstructions such as trees, vehicles, buildings, and hills must
be considered. Distance is theprimary factor when using outdoor-wireless communications; however,
coverage area also becomes important when you are using wireless client devices to communicate with
the wireless device.
Cisco Connected Grid 1000 Series and 2000 Series routers support various types of antennas for wireless
communication in Smart Grid backhaul and WPAN networks.

Safety Precautions
Safety Precautions
Warning
Do not locate the outdoor antenna near overhead power lines or other electric light or power
circuits, or where it can come into contact with such circuits. When installing the antenna, take
extreme care not to come into contact with such circuits, as they may cause serious injury or
death. For proper installation and grounding of the antenna, please refer to national and local
codes (for example, U.S.:NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, Article 810, Canada:Canadian
Electrical Code, Section 54). Statement 1052
Each year hundreds of people are killed or injured when attempting to install an antenna. In many of
these cases, the victim was aware of the danger of electrocution, but did not take adequate steps to avoid
the hazard.
For your safety, and to help you achieve a good installation, please read and follow these safety
precautions. They may save your life!
For your safety, read and follow these safety precautions.
•
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance. Your Cisco sales representative can explain which mounting method to use
for the size and type antenna you are about to install.
•
Before you install an antenna, contact your Cisco account representative to explain which mounting
method to use for the size and type of antenna that you are about to install.
•
Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Each person involved in an
installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One
person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
•
When installing your antenna, follow these guidelines:
– Do not use a metal ladder.
– Do not work on a wet or windy day.
– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.

Installation Location
Warning
Do not locate the outdoor antenna near overhead power lines or other electric light or power
circuits, or where it can come into contact with such circuits. When installing the antenna, take
extreme care not to come into contact with such circuits, as they may cause serious injury or
death. For proper installation and grounding of the antenna, please refer to national and local
codes (for example, U.S.:NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, Article 810, Canada:Canadian
Electrical Code, Section 54). Statement 1052
The location of the antenna is important. Objects such as metal columns, walls, and so on, reduce
efficiency. Best performance is achieved when antennas are mounted at the same height and in a direct
line of sight with no obstructions. If this is not possible and reception is poor, you should try different
mounting positions to optimize reception.
The antenna is designed to create an omnidirectional broadcast pattern. To achieve this pattern, the
antenna should be mounted clear of any obstructions to the sides of the radiating element. If the
mounting location is on the side of a building or on a tower, the antenna pattern is degraded on the
building or tower side.
Antenna installation and replacement should only be performed at one of the following, certified
location types:
•
Utility maintenance and repair depot
•
Cisco DF facility
•
Customer premises field depot
Before installing your antenna, determine the optimum location for safety and performance. Follow
these steps to determine a safe distance from wires, power lines, and trees:
Step 1
Measure the height of your antenna.
Step 2
Add this length to the length of your tower or mast, then double this total for the minimum safe clearance
distance from wires, power lines, and trees.
Caution
If you are unable to maintain this safe distance, stop and get professional technical assistance for a
mounting alternative.
Antenna Connections
Before you install or replace antennas, make sure the router is:
•
Powered off
•
Disconnected from all power sources
•
Disconnected from the Field Area Network (FAN)

Installation Requirements
•
Note
Removed from a pole-top installation
Caps on the N-connectors are installed on the CGR 1240 antenna ports to protect them from the
environment. They must only be removed to install the integrated antenna or the antenna RF cable. For
more information, see , page 1-31.
Optimum Performance
The higher your antenna is above the ground, the better it performs, generally. It is good practice is to
install your antenna about 5 to 10 ft (1.5 to 3 m) above the roof line and away from all power lines and
obstructions. If possible, find a mounting place directly above your wireless device so that the lead-in
cable can be as direct as possible.
Antennas transmit and receive radio signals which are susceptible to RF obstructions and common
sources of interference that can reduce throughput and range of the device to which they are connected.
Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Install the antenna vertically and mount it with the cables pointing towards the ground.
•
Keep the antenna away from metal obstructions such as heating and air-conditioning ducts, large
ceiling trusses, building superstructures, and major power cabling runs. If necessary, use a rigid
conduit to lower the antenna away from these obstructions.
•
The density of the materials used in surrounding buildings’ construction impacts antenna signal
strength. Consider the following
– Signals penetrate paper and vinyl walls with little change to signal strength.
– Signals penetrate only one or two solid and pre-cast concrete walls without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals penetrate three or four concrete and wood block walls without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals penetrate five or six walls constructed of drywall or wood without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals are likely to reflect off a thick metal wall and not penetrate it at all.
– Signals are likely to reflect off a chain link fence or a wire mesh with spaces of 1 to 1-1/2 in
(2.5 to 3.8 cm).
•
Microwave ovens and 2-GHz cordless phones can cause signal interference because they operate in
the same frequency range as the WiFi radio to which one of the antennas is connected.
•
For instructions on installing or replacing a Cisco Connected Grid module, see the corresponding
installation and configuration guide for each module.
•
For detailed instructions on opening the door, see the installation guide of your router. Before
installing the antenna according to the installation procedures in the following chapters, you must
complete these steps:
– Open the router chassis door.
– Remove any plug or connector that is installed in the antenna port.
– Verify the correct antenna port for installation, based on the antenna model you are installing.
•
See the installation document for your router regarding the correct antenna port location. Antennas
must be installed in the correct antenna port for ease of installation and optimal performance.

General Installation Instructions for Mounting Antennas
Note
Ensure that you are able to access the antenna port from inside the router. If an installed module prevents
you from reaching the antenna port, you might have to remove the module before installing the antenna,
then reinstall the module. See the corresponding module installation and configuration guide for each
module.
General Installation Instructions for Mounting Antennas
Caution
For outside installations, make sure you do not mount the antenna upside down or block the bottom of
the antenna at the cable exit. The correct mounting position is with the cable pointing down (towards the
ground) so that any moisture will drain through the antenna drain holes. The antenna ships with a yellow
mounting instruction label temporarily attached to the antenna radome.
The following instructions are common to most mast mounted installations.
Step 1
Assemble your new antenna on the ground or a level surface at the installation site.
Step 2
Connect its coaxial cable while you are on the ground and attach the antenna to the mast.
Step 3
Ensure that the mast does not fall as you raise or remove it. Use a durable non-conductive rope secured
at each two foot level as the mast is raised. Have an assistant tend the rope, ready to pull the mast clear
of any hazards (such as power lines) should it begin to fall.
Step 4
Use the mounting bracket provided with the antenna.
Step 5
If the installation will use guy wires:
Step 6
a.
Install guy anchor bolts.
b.
Estimate the length of guy wire and cut it before raising the mast.
c.
Attach guy wires to a mast using guy rings.
Carefully connect the antenna and mast assembly to its mounting bracket and tighten the clamp bolts.
In the case of a a guyed (tall, thin mast) installation, you must have at least one assistant to hold the mast
upright while the guy wires are attached and tightened to the anchor bolts.
Step 7
Attach a “DANGER” label at eye level on the mast.
Step 8
Install ground rods to remove any static electricity buildup and connect a ground wire to the mast and
ground rod. Use ground rods designed for that purpose, not a spare piece of pipe.
When to Install or Replace Antennas
Depending on the router configuration, it could arrive in the shipping container with all required
antennas already installed and connected to the corresponding Cisco Connected Grid moduless (CG)
that inside the router.

However, you might need to install an antenna on the router when:
•
You purchase a CG Module separately from the router. The antenna is included in the module kit,
and must be installed on the router to complete the module installation procedure.
•
You purchase an antenna separately to replace a faulty or damaged antenna.

Antenna Port Numbering
This section illustrates the antenna port locations on the router. Each antenna port is numbered. The
antenna port numbers can be referenced by installers, support technicians, and other end users when
installing, replacing, or troubleshooting the antennas.
Caution
Any Connected Grid antenna can be installed in any of the router antenna ports, however, Cisco
recommends that antennas be installed in the locations recommended in the Cisco Connected Grid
Antennas Installation Guide. Doing so ensures correct antenna cable management, ease of installation,
and optimal antenna performance.
The recommended location for each antenna depends on several factors, including:
Note
•
The type and number of Connected Grid modules installed in the router
•
The type and number of antennas required to support the installed modules
The router integrated WiFi antenna is always installed in Port 5, and should not be removed or replaced
with another antenna model.

Unused Antenna Ports-N Connectors
Port plugs or female N-connector bulkhead adapters with weatherproof caps must be installed in any
unused antenna ports.
The weatherproof cap on the N-connector protects the router interior from environmental elements
including water, heat, cold, and dust. They are installed on unused ports before the router is shipped, and
support Cisco external antennas.
When you install a new antenna in a port with an N-connector:
Note
•
Chassis-mounted antennas—Remove the N-connector before installing a chassis-mounted antenna.
•
External antennas—Remove weatherproof cap, then connect the supported Cisco lightning arrestor
to the N-connector. Then connect the antenna cable to the lightning arrestor.

Step 6
From the interior of the router, install the coaxial end of the cable to the appropriate connector on your
installed module. The antenna cable and module port should be the same color (red, yellow, or green).
For more information, see Antenna and CG Module Color Codes, page 1-35.
Note
Take care in routing cables so they avoid pinching and interfering with the Battery Backup Unit
(BBU) when the chassis front door is closed.
Note
Some modules require two antennas: a main antenna and a diversity antenna. These modules
have two antenna connectors on the front panel, labeled MAIN and AUX. Be sure to connect the
main and diversity antennas to the correct module connectors.
Antenna and CG Module Color Codes
The antennas and the Cisco Connected Grid modules are color coded to help you correctly connect the
antenna cables to the CGR modules installed in the router. The antenna cable has a color at the connector
end that corresponds with colored antenna cable port(s) on the supported CGR module.
The color coded modules and cables apply to the integrated antennas and the 4G omnidirectional stick
dipole antennas only.
When you connect the antenna cable to the CGR module, as described in the section installation
procedures of your antenna, match the cable color to the module connector color.

Cisco Lightning Arrestors
This section provides an overview on how to ground your mast and antenna using the lightning arrestor.
See the product documentation for your lightning arrestor for details.
Note
The lightning arrestor is not required for indoor antennas.
Cisco lightning arrestors provide a level of safety protection to the installer as well as to wireless
equipment by shunting to ground over-voltage transients induced into outdoor antennas and cables.
These transients, in mild cases can produce interfering signals in a wireless system, and in extreme cases,
can be dangerous and destructive.
Overvoltage transients can be created through lightning static discharges, switch processes, direct
contact with power lines, or through earth currents. The Cisco 3G-ACC-OUT-LA Lightning Arrestor
limits the amplitude and duration of disturbing interference voltages and improves the overvoltage
resistance of in-line equipment, systems, and components. A lightning arrestor installed according to
these mounting instructions balances the voltage potential, thus providing safety and preventing
inductive interference to parallel signal lines within the protected system.
Consider the following:
•
Find a suitable location for the arrestor near a suitable ground per the relevant Safety codes.
•
The arrestor should either be bulkhead grounded (preferred way) or grounded through the lug
provided and 6 AWG wire no more than 20" (50.8 cm) long.
To install a lightning arrestor for the Cisco 1240 CGR (CGR-LA-NM-NF), see:

Cisco Lightning Arrestors
Installing the Lightning Arrestor for the CGR 1120
The lightning arrestor (CGR-LA-NF-NF) is designed to be installed in series, between the antenna cable
that is attached to the 3G outdoor antenna and the second antenna cable entering the building. It is
recommended that the arrestor and its ground connection is made as close as possible to where it enters
the building, either just outside or just inside the building.
Cisco recommends that the lightning arrestor is bulkhead-mounted and is being directly attached to a
well-grounded bracket or well-grounded panel through the threaded shaft of the arrestor and the supplied
nut. If this is not possible, then the next best option is to use the ground lug provided with the kit. The
ground lug requires a 6-AWG copper ground wire (user provided) that is crimped onto the lug and the
other end connected to a good solid ground point (for example, an electrical ground buss bar). You must
keep the ground wire length as short (under 20"/50.8 cm) as possible for best results.
This section provides an overview on how to ground your mast and antenna using the lightning arrestor.
See the product documentation for your lightning arrestor for details.

Note
Arrestor should either be bulkhead grounded (preferred way) or grounded through the lug provided and
6 AWG wire no more than 20" (0.5 m) long.
To ground the antenna in accordance with national electrical code instructions, follow these guidelines :
Step 1
Use No. 6 AWG copper or No. 8 or larger copper-clad steel or bronze wire as ground wires for both mast
and antenna lead-in.
Step 2
Securely clamp the wire to the bottom of the mast.
Step 3
Secure the lead-in wire to a lightning arrestor and mast ground wire to the building with stand-off
insulators spaced from 4 ft (1.2 m) to 8 ft (1.8 m) apart.
Step 4
Mount the lightning arrestor as close as possible to the lead-in wire entry point on the building wall.
Step 5
Drill a hole in the wall as close as possible to the equipment to which you will connect the lead-in cable.
Caution
There may be wires in the wall. Make sure that you determine the place you intend to drill the
hole is clear of any obstructions or other hazards.
Step 6
From inside the building, pull the cable through the hole and form a drip loop close to where it enters
the building.
Step 7
Thoroughly waterproof the lead-in area using an outdoor weather seal.
Step 8
Install a static electricity discharge unit.
Step 9
Connect the lead-in cable to the equipment. See the installation steps in the following chapters.
Note
Create a strain relief loop with a diameter of at least 0.75" (1.9 cm) for LMR240 cable or at least
1.75" (4.45 cm) for LMR400 cable at the cable/arrestor connection.
Step 10
Attach the lightning arrestor.
Step 11
Attach a second cable 25 to 50 ft (7.62 to 15.24 m) from the arrestor to the 3G-HWIC main antenna port.
The total maximum length of cable recommended is 75 ft (22.86 m) for LMR-240 cable and 100 ft.
(30.48 m) for LMR-400 cable in areas with good outdoor signal reception. If this is not sufficient cable
length for the application, a site survey and the installer must calculate an appropriate link budget to
determine the maximum cable length that can be used for the specific installation.

Safety Warnings
Safety Instructions
Each year hundreds of people are killed or injured when attempting to install an antenna. In many of
these cases, the victim was aware of the danger of electrocution, but did not take adequate steps to avoid
the hazard.
For your safety, and to help you achieve a good installation, please read and follow these safety
precautions. They may save your life!
For your safety, read and follow these safety precautions.
Warning
In order to comply with FCC radio frequency (RF) exposure limits, antennas should be located
at a minimum of 7.9 inches (20 cm) or more from the body of all persons. Statement 332
•
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance. Your Cisco sales representative can explain which mounting method to use
for the size and type antenna you are about to install.
•
Plan your installation procedure carefully and completely before you begin.
•
Choose your installation site with safety performance in mind. Remember that electric power cables
and telephone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any line is an electric power line until
determined otherwise.
•
Call your local power company or building maintenance organization if you are unsure about cables
close to your mounting location.
•
When installing your antenna, do not use a metal ladder. Dress in rubber soled shoes and heels,
rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
•
If an accident or emergency occurs with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help
immediately.
•
Before you install an antenna, contact your Cisco account representative to explain which mounting
method to use for the size and type of antenna that you are about to install.
•
Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Each person involved in an installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what
to do and when to do it. One person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and
watch for signs of trouble.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident occurs with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.

Installation Notes, page 2-17
•
Tools and Equipment Required, page 2-18
•
Install the Antenna onto the CGR 1240 Router, page 2-18
Installation Notes
This Cisco Multi-purpose Integrated Antenna is designed to be mounted directly onto the router.
In addition to antenna orientation, wireless access point installation location with respect to all wireless
clients plays a significant role in determining overall network performance.
Because antennas transmit and receive radio signals, their performance can be adversely affected by the
surrounding environment including distance between the Field Area Router (FAR) and cellular base
station, physical obstructions, or radio frequency (RF) interference.
Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Install the router with antenna without physical obstructions. Barriers along the line of sight between
the FAR and cellular base station degrade the wireless radio signals.
•
The density of the materials used in a building's construction determines the number of walls the
signal must pass through and still maintain adequate coverage. Consider the following before
choosing the location to install your antenna:
– Paper and vinyl walls have very little effect on signal penetration.
– Solid and precast concrete walls limit signal penetration to one or two walls without degrading
coverage.
– Concrete and wood block walls limit signal penetration to three or four walls.
– A signal can penetrate five or six walls constructed of drywall or wood.
– A thick metal wall or wire-mesh stucco walls causes signals to reflect back and cause poor
penetration.
•
Avoid mounting the antenna next to a column or vertical support that could create a shadow zone
and reduce the coverage area.
•
Keep the antenna away from reflective metal objects such as heating and air-conditioning ducts,
large ceiling trusses, building superstructures, and major power cabling runs. If necessary, use an
extension cable to relocate the antenna away from these obstructions.
Caution
Install the router and antenna away from appliances that share the same frequency bands. Microwave
ovens, cordless telephones, and security monitors can temporarily interfere with wireless performance.
Caution
Avoid installing wireless antennas in or near rack-mounted installations that include networking
equipment and computer servers whose radiated noise emissions can severely degrade radio
performance.

Chapter 2
Cisco Multi-purpose Integrated Antenna (ANT-MP-INT-OUT-M)
Antenna Installation
Note
If the desired installation site has a marginally acceptable level of radiated noise emissions, consider
using a remote-mounted antenna, such as a wall-mount or ceiling-mount antenna, for better radio
performance and coverage.
Tools and Equipment Required
In addition to the parts included in the antenna kit described in the section Integrated Antenna Kit,
page 2-14, you must provide the following tool to install the antenna on the router:
•
Strap wrench
•
13 mm socket wrench

Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Each person involved in an
installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One
person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
•
When installing your antenna, follow these guidelines:
– Do not use a metal ladder.
– Do not work on a wet or windy day.

Antenna Installation
– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.
Antenna Installation
The antenna installation includes the following procedures:
•
Tools and Equipment Required, page 3-7
•
Attaching the Mounting Bracket, page 3-7
Tools and Equipment Required
In addition to the parts included in the antenna kit, you must provide the following tool to install the
antenna on the router:
Note
•
A #2 Phillips screwdriver
•
A hose clamp (shipped with your antenna)
•
3/4 in. open-end wrench
This list does not include the tools and equipment required to assemble and erect the tower, mast, or other
structure you intend to mount your antenna on.
Attaching the Mounting Bracket
The antenna is provided with a mounting kit consisting of a mounting bracket and hose clamp. This kit
allows you to mount the antenna to masts from 1.25 inches (3.2 centimeters) to 2 inches (5.1 cm). Cisco
recommends that a 1.5 inch (3.8 centimeter) or larger tubing mast be used.
The antenna is vertically polarized. Since the antenna has vertical gain, it is very important to mount the
antenna in a vertical (not leaning) position for optimal performance.

Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Each person involved in an
installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One
person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
•
When installing your antenna, follow these guidelines:
– Do not use a metal ladder.
– Do not work on a wet or windy day.
– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.

Installing the Antenna
Tools and Equipment Required
In addition to the parts included in the antenna kit described in the section Contents of the Antenna Kit,
page 6-19, you must provide the following tool to install the antenna on the router:
Note
•
Phillips screwdriver
•
Open-ended wrench
•
Electric drill
This list does not include the tools and equipment required to assemble and erect the tower, mast, or other
structure you intend to mount your antenna on.
Preparing the Antenna for Installation
Note
Before mounting the antenna on a mast or wall:
- the antenna must be attached to the mounting bracket.
- the signal cable must be attached to the antenna.
To prepare the antenna for installation:
Step 1
Attach the antenna to the mounting bracket.
Step 2
To attach the signal cable to the antenna:
Step 3
a.
Loosely hand-tighten the antenna nut so that the cable can be attached with ease.
b.
Attach the cable to the antenna.
c.
Hand tighten the N-connector to the antenna.
d.
Tighten the antenna nut securely after the cable is installed.
e.
Use weatherproof sealing tape (coax seal) at the connector junction. Start wrapping at the top of the
antenna connector, wrap downward 3 times and end about 2 inches downward from the center of the
connector junction. Then wrap upwards another 3 times to reach the top of the antenna connector.
Decide if the antenna is to be mounted on a wall or mast. Perform the following steps where relevant:
a.
If the antenna is going to be mast mounted, install the clamps provided in the mounting bracket.
Align the antenna so the top of the metal bracket is even with or slightly above the top of the mast
tubing.
b.
If the antenna is to be wall mounted, use the screws provided.
c.
Use both clamps and screws for extra security if required.
Mounting the Antenna
Follow these instructions to mount the antenna:

Connecting the Lightning Arrestor
To install a lightning-protection device, seeCisco Lightning Arrestors, page 1-36 in Chapter 1, “Cisco
CGR 1000 and 2000 Series Connected Grid Antennas Overview”.
Connecting the Antenna to the Router
To attach the router-end of the cable to your router, see Connecting the Antenna to the CGR 1120,
page 1-33 in Chapter 1, “Cisco CGR 1000 and 2000 Series Connected Grid Antennas Overview”.
Note
Coaxial cable loses efficiency as the frequency increases, resulting in signal loss. The cable should be
kept as short as possible because cable length also determines the amount of signal loss—the longer the
cable length or run, the greater the loss).

Installation Requirements
Installation Requirements
Installation Location
Antenna installation and replacement should only be performed at one of the following, certified
location types:
•
Utility maintenance and repair depot
•
Cisco DF facility
•
Customer premises field depot
Antenna Connections
Before you install or replace antennas, make sure the router is:
•
Powered off
•
Disconnected from all power sources
•
Disconnected from the Field Area Network (FAN)
•
Removed from a poletop installation
For Optimum Performance
Antennas transmit and receive radio signals which are susceptible to RF obstructions and common
sources of interference that can reduce throughput and range of the device to which they are connected.
Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Install the antenna vertically and mount it with the cables pointing towards the ground.
•
Keep the antenna away from metal obstructions such as heating and air-conditioning ducts, large
ceiling trusses, building superstructures, and major power cabling runs. If necessary, use a rigid
conduit to lower the antenna away from these obstructions.
•
The density of the materials used in surrounding buildings’ construction impacts antenna signal
strength. Consider the following
– Signals penetrate paper and vinyl walls with little change to signal strength.
– Signals penetrate only one or two solid and pre-cast concrete walls without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals penetrate three or four concrete and wood block walls without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals penetrate five or six walls constructed of drywall or wood without degrading signal
strength.
– Signals are likely to reflect off a thick metal wall and not penetrate it at all.
– Signals are likely to reflect off a chain link fence or a wire mesh with spaces of 1 to 1-1/2 in.
(2.5 to 3.8 cm). The fence acts as a harmonic reflector that blocks the signal.
•
Microwave ovens and 2-GHz cordless phones can cause signal interference because they operate in
the same frequency range as the device to which your antenna is connected.

•
Before installing the antenna according to the Antenna Installation, page 8-8, you must complete
these steps:
– Remove any plug or connector that is installed in the antenna port.
– Verify the correct antenna port for installation, based on the antenna model you are installing.
•
Note
See the instatllation document for your router regarding the correct antenna port location. Antennas
must be installed in the correct antenna port for ease of installation and optimal performance.
Ensure that you are able to access the antenna port from inside the router. If an installed module prevents
you from reaching the antenna port, you might have to remove the module before installing the antenna,
then reinstall the module. See the corresponding module installation and configuration guide for each
module.

Safety Precautions
Warning
Installation of this antenna near power lines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation
directions.
Each year hundreds of people are killed or injured when attempting to install an antenna. In many of
these cases, the victim was aware of the danger of electrocution, but did not take adequate steps to avoid
the hazard.
For your safety, and to help you achieve a good installation, please read and follow these safety
precautions. They may save your life!
For your safety, read and follow these safety precautions.
•
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance. Your Cisco sales representative can explain which mounting method to use
for the size and type antenna you are about to install.
•
Before you install an antenna, contact your Cisco account representative to explain which mounting
method to use for the size and type of antenna that you are about to install.
•
Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.

Cisco Indoor Swivel-mount Dipole Antenna (ANT-4G-DP-IN-TNC)
Antenna Installation
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Each person involved in an
installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One
person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
•
When installing your antenna, follow these guidelines:
– Do not use a metal ladder.
– Do not work on a wet or windy day.
– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.
Antenna Installation
This antenna is designed to be mounted directly to the access point. For information about orienting the
dipole antenna, see the hardware installation guide for your access point.
In addition to antenna orientation, wireless access point installation location with respect to all wireless
clients plays a significant role in determining overall network performance. Clients at the furthest
coverage points might have 10% to 50% of the bandwidth of clients close to it. Wireless network
coverage in one area or location might need to be lowered to improve the performance of other clients.
Because antennas transmit and receive radio signals, their performance can be adversely affected by the
surrounding environment including distance between access point and client, physical obstructions, or
radio frequency (RF) interference.
Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Wherever possible, mount the AP HWIC and antenna where the wireless devices would be within
sight and avoid physical obstructions. Barriers along the line of sight between client and access point
will degrade the wireless radio signals. AP HWICs and antennas can be installed above floor level
in office environments or near the ceiling for better performance since most obstructions tend to be
near floor level.
•
The density of the materials used in a building's construction determines the number of walls the
signal must pass through and still maintain adequate coverage. Consider the following before
choosing the location to install your antenna:
– Paper and vinyl walls have very little effect on signal penetration.
– Solid and precast concrete walls limit signal penetration to one or two walls without degrading
coverage.
– Concrete and wood block walls limit signal penetration to three or four walls.
– A signal can penetrate five or six walls constructed of drywall or wood.

Chapter 8
Cisco Indoor Swivel-mount Dipole Antenna (ANT-4G-DP-IN-TNC)
Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request
– A thick metal wall or wire-mesh stucco walls causes signals to reflect back and cause poor
penetration.
•
Avoid mounting the antenna next to a column or vertical support that could create a shadow zone
and reduce the coverage area.
•
Keep the antenna away from reflective metal objects such as heating and air-conditioning ducts,
large ceiling trusses, building superstructures, and major power cabling runs. If necessary, use an
extension cable to relocate the antenna away from these obstructions.
Caution
Install the AP HWIC and any antennas away from appliances that share the same frequency bands.
Microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and security monitors can temporarily interfere with wireless
performance.
Caution
We recommend you avoid installing wireless antennas in or near rack-mounted installations that include
networking equipment and computer servers whose radiated noise emissions can severely degrade radio
performance.
Note
If the desired installation site has a marginally acceptable level of radiated noise emissions, consider
using a remote-mounted antenna, such as a wall-mount or ceiling-mount antenna, for better radio
performance and coverage.

– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.

Install the Antenna onto the CGR 1240 Router, page 12-12
Installation Notes
This Cisco Multi-purpose Integrated Antenna is designed to be mounted directly onto the router.
In addition to antenna orientation, wireless access point installation location with respect to all wireless
clients plays a significant role in determining overall network performance.
Because antennas transmit and receive radio signals, their performance can be adversely affected by the
surrounding environment including distance between the Field Area Router (FAR) and cellular base
station, physical obstructions, or radio frequency (RF) interference.
Follow these guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Install the router with antenna without physical obstructions. Barriers along the line of sight between
the FAR and cellular base station degrade the wireless radio signals.
•
The density of the materials used in a building's construction determines the number of walls the
signal must pass through and still maintain adequate coverage. Consider the following before
choosing the location to install your antenna:
– Paper and vinyl walls have very little effect on signal penetration.
– Solid and precast concrete walls limit signal penetration to one or two walls without degrading
coverage.
– Concrete and wood block walls limit signal penetration to three or four walls.
– A signal can penetrate five or six walls constructed of drywall or wood.
– A thick metal wall or wire-mesh stucco walls causes signals to reflect back and cause poor
penetration.
•
Avoid mounting the antenna next to a column or vertical support that could create a shadow zone
and reduce the coverage area.
•
Keep the antenna away from reflective metal objects such as heating and air-conditioning ducts,
large ceiling trusses, building superstructures, and major power cabling runs. If necessary, use an
extension cable to relocate the antenna away from these obstructions.
Caution
Install the router and antenna away from appliances that share the same frequency bands. Microwave
ovens, cordless telephones, and security monitors can temporarily interfere with wireless performance.
Caution
Avoid installing wireless antennas in or near rack-mounted installations that include networking
equipment and computer servers whose radiated noise emissions can severely degrade radio
performance.

Antenna Installation
Note
If the desired installation site has a marginally acceptable level of radiated noise emissions, consider
using a remote-mounted antenna, such as a wall-mount or ceiling-mount antenna, for better radio
performance and coverage.
Tools and Equipment Required
In addition to the parts included in the antenna kit described in the section Integrated Antenna Kits,
page 12-8, you must provide the following tool to install the antenna on the router:
•
Strap wrench
•
13 mm socket wrench

precautions. They may save your life!
For your safety, read and follow these safety precautions.
•
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance. Your Cisco sales representative can explain which mounting method to use
for the size and type antenna you are about to install.
•
Plan your installation procedure carefully and completely before you begin.
•
Choose your installation site with safety performance in mind. Remember that electric power cables
and telephone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any line is an electric power line until
determined otherwise.
•
Call your local power company or building maintenance organization if you are unsure about cables
close to your mounting location.
•
When installing your antenna, do not use a metal ladder. Dress in rubber soled shoes and heels,
rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
•
If an accident or emergency occurs with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help
immediately.
•
Before you install an antenna, contact your Cisco account representative to explain which mounting
method to use for the size and type of antenna that you are about to install.
•
Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric

Cisco WPAN Dipole Antenna (ANT-WPAN-OD-OUT-N)
Installing the Antenna
•
Each person involved in an installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what
to do and when to do it. One person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and
watch for signs of trouble.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident occurs with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.
Tools and Equipment Required
No tools are required to install the antenna. This does not include the tools and equipment required to
install the router or to assemble the tower, mast, or other structure you intend to mount the router and
antenna on.
Mounting the Antenna
Follow these instructions to mount the antenna.
Note
•
If installing the antenna on an IR529UWP-915S/K9 or IR529UBWP-915S/K9, screw the antenna’s
N male connector onto the N female connector on the chassis. Ensure that the connection is tight.
See Single Antenna Advanced Range Extender—Direct Connect Antenna Configuration in the
Cisco IR500 Series WPAN Gateway and WPAN Range Extender Installation and Configuration
Guide.
•
If installing the antenna to a bulkhead adapter or lightning arrestor, install the lightning arrestor or
adapter to the side of the enclosure first, then screw the antenna onto the N female connector of the
lightning arrestor or adapter. See Gateway Enclosure Mounted Antenna Configuration in the Cisco
IR500 Series WPAN Gateway and WPAN Range Extender Installation and Configuration Guide.
Coaxial cable loses efficiency as the frequency increases, resulting in signal loss. If a cable is used it
should be kept as short as possible because cable length also determines the amount of signal loss—the
longer the cable length or run, the greater the loss.

Warning
This warning symbol means danger. You are in a situation that could cause bodily injury. Before
you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be
familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. Use the statement number provided at
the end of each warning to locate its translation in the translated safety warnings that
accompanied this device. Statement 1071. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
Warning
This product is not intended to be directly connected to the Cable Distribution System.
Additional regulatory compliance and legal requirements may apply for direct connection to the
Cable Distribution System. This product may connect to the Cable Distribution System ONLY
through a device that is approved for direct connection. Statement 1078
Safety Precautions
Warning
Installation of this antenna near power lines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation
directions.
Each year hundreds of people are killed or injured when attempting to install an antenna. In many of
these cases, the victim was aware of the danger of electrocution, but did not take adequate steps to avoid
the hazard.
For your safety, and to help you achieve a good installation, please read and follow these safety
precautions. They may save your life!
For your safety, read and follow these safety precautions.
•
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance. Your Cisco sales representative can explain which mounting method to use
for the size and type antenna you are about to install.
•
Before you install an antenna, contact your Cisco account representative to explain which mounting
method to use for the size and type of antenna that you are about to install.
•
Find someone to help you—installing an antenna is often a two-person job.
•
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance, in mind. Remember that electric
power lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
•
Contact your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your
proposed installation.
•
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Each person involved in an
installation should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One
person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
•
When installing your antenna, follow these guidelines:
– Do not use a metal ladder.
– Do not work on a wet or windy day.

Antenna Installation
– Do dress properly—wear shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, and a long-sleeved
shirt or jacket.
•
If the assembly starts to drop, move away from it and let it fall. Because the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current, even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line completes an electrical path through the antenna and the installer.
•
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, do not touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company to have it removed safely.
•
If an accident should occur with the power lines, call for qualified emergency help immediately.
Antenna Installation
The antenna installation includes the following procedures:
•
Tools and Equipment Required, page 15-7
•
Attaching the Mounting Bracket, page 15-7
Tools and Equipment Required
In addition to the parts included in the antenna kit, you must provide the following tool to install the
antenna on the router:
Note
•
A #2 Phillips screwdriver
•
A hose clamp (shipped with your antenna)
•
3/4 in. open-end wrench
This list does not include the tools and equipment required to assemble and erect the tower, mast, or other
structure you intend to mount your antenna on.
Attaching the Mounting Bracket
The antenna is provided with a mounting kit consisting of a mounting bracket and hose clamp. This kit
allows you to mount the antenna to masts from 1.25 inches (3.2 centimeters) to 2 inches (5.1 cm). Cisco
recommends that a 1.5 inch (3.8 centimeter) or larger tubing mast be used.
The antenna is vertically polarized. Since the antenna has vertical gain, it is very important to mount the
antenna in a vertical (not leaning) position for optimal performance.
