Overview

The Cisco 4G-AE015-R single-port antenna base is designed for use with portable antennas operating at frequencies up to 6 GHz that connect to 4G wireless enhanced high-speed WAN interface cards (EHWICs) using a threaded Neill-Concelman (TNC) male connector. This antenna base unit, ordered separately, has 15 feet of plenum LMR-195 cable and can be used with antennas listed in Table 1.

The antenna base can be wall-mounted or placed on a rack or desktop, and has the following features:

Multiple band coverage supporting cellular backhaul installations and wireless LAN (WLAN) and wi-fi networks

Ergonomic design

Warning This equipment must be connected to an indoor antenna only. Statement 373

Caution Install the EHWIC 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 avoiding installing wireless antennas in or near rack-mounted equipment that include networking equipment and computer servers whose radiated noise emissions can severely degrade radio performance.

To extend the coaxial cable included with your antenna base, we recommend a ULL coaxial cable for flexibility of installation without significant loss of range.

Table 2 provides insertion loss information for ULL extension coaxial cables available from Cisco.

Safety Instructions

Follow these safety instructions when installing your antenna.


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

Warning This equipment must be connected to an indoor antenna only. Statement 373

Plan your installation procedure carefully and completely before you begin.

If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as that of others, seek professional assistance. Consult your dealer, who can explain which mounting method to use for the location where you plan to install the antenna.

Choose your installation site with both safety and performance in mind. Remember that electric power cables and telephone lines look alike.


Caution 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. Do dress properly: wear shoes with rubber soles 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.
