Overview

Executive overview

This antenna reference guide explains issues and concerns about antennas used with a Cisco® Aironet® and Catalyst® wireless LAN system or wireless bridge system. It details deployment and design, limitations and capabilities, and basic theories of antennas. This document also contains information about the Cisco antennas and accessories, as well as installation scenarios, regulatory information, and technical specifications and diagrams of the available antennas.

Overview of antennas

Each Cisco Aironet radio product is designed to perform in a variety of environments. Implementing the antenna system can greatly improve coverage and performance.

To optimize the overall performance of a Cisco wireless LAN, it is important to understand how to maximize radio coverage with the appropriate antenna selection and placement. An antenna system comprises numerous components, including the antenna, mounting hardware, connectors, antenna cabling, and in some cases a lightning arrestor. For a consultation, please contact a Cisco Aironet partner at: http://tools.cisco.com/WWChannels/LOCATR/jsp/partner_locator.jsp.

Cisco partners can provide onsite engineering assistance for complex requirements.

Antenna properties and ratings

An antenna gives the wireless system three fundamental properties: gain, direction, and polarization. Gain is a measure of increase in power. Direction is the shape of the transmission pattern. A good analogy for an antenna is the reflector in a flashlight. The reflector concentrates and intensifies the light beam in a particular direction similar to what a parabolic dish antenna would do to an RF source in a radio system.

Antenna gain is measured in decibels, which is a ratio between two values. The gain of a specific antenna is compared to the gain of an isotropic antenna. An isotropic antenna is a theoretical antenna with a uniform three-dimensional radiation pattern (similar to a light bulb with no reflector). The decibels over an isotropic radiator (dBi) value is used to compare the power level of a given antenna to the theoretical isotropic antenna. The U.S. regulatory agency (the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC) uses dBi in its calculations. An isotropic antenna is said to have a power rating of 0 dB, meaning that it has zero gain/loss when compared to itself.

Unlike isotropic antennas, dipole antennas are real antennas. Dipole antennas have a different radiation pattern compared to isotropic antennas. The dipole radiation pattern is 360 degrees in the horizontal plane and 75 degrees in the vertical plane (assuming the dipole antenna is standing vertically) and resembles a doughnut in shape. Because the beam is “slightly” concentrated, dipole antennas have a gain over isotropic antennas of 2.14 dB in the horizontal plane. Dipole antennas are said to have a gain of 2.14 dBi (in comparison to an isotropic antenna).

Some antennas are rated in comparison to dipole antennas. This is denoted by the suffix dBd, short for decibels over a dipole antenna. Hence, dipole antennas have a gain of 0 dBd (= 2.14 dBi).

Note that the majority of documentation refers to dipole antennas as having a gain of 2.2 dBi. The actual figure is 2.14 dBi, but it is often rounded up.

Types of antennas

Cisco offers several different styles of antennas for use with access points and bridges in both 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz products. Every antenna offered for sale has been FCC-approved. Each type of antenna has different coverage capabilities. As the gain of an antenna increases, there is some tradeoff in its coverage area. Usually high-gain antennas offer longer coverage distances, but only in a certain direction. The radiation patterns described below show the coverage areas of the styles of antennas that Cisco offers: dipole, omnidirectional, and patch antennas.

Omnidirectional antennas

An omnidirectional antenna (Figure 1) is designed to provide a 360-degree radiation pattern. This type of antenna is used when coverage in all directions from the antenna is required. The standard 2.14-dBi “rubber duck” is one style of omnidirectional antenna.

Omnidirectional antenna

Figure 1.               

Omnidirectional antenna

Directional antennas

Directional antennas come in many different styles and shapes. An antenna does not offer any added power to the signal; it simply redirects the energy it receives from the transmitter. By redirecting this energy, it has the effect of providing more energy in one direction and less energy in all other directions. As the gain of a directional antenna increases, the angle of radiation usually decreases, providing a greater coverage distance but with a reduced coverage angle. Directional antennas include patch antennas (Figure 2) and parabolic dishes. Parabolic dishes have a very narrow RF energy path, and the installer must be accurate in aiming these types of antennas at each other.

Directional patch antenna

Directional patch antenna

Cabling

Cabling introduces losses into the system, negating some of the gain an antenna introduces and reducing the range of the RF coverage.

Interconnect cable

Attached to all antennas (except the standard dipoles), this cable provides a 50-ohm impedance to the radio and antenna, with a flexible connection between the two items. It has a high loss factor and should not be used except for very short connections (usually less than 10 feet). Typical length on all antennas is 36 inches.

Low-loss and ultra-low-loss cable

Cisco offers two styles of cables for use with the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz product lines. These cables provide a much lower loss factor than standard interconnect cables, and they can be used when the antenna must be placed at any distance from the radio device. While these are low-loss cables, they should still be kept to a minimum length.

Two types of cables are available for mounting the antenna away from the radio unit. The 100- and 150-foot cables are LMR600-type cables, while the 20- and 50-foot cables are LMR400-type cables. All four lengths are supplied with one reverse polarity-TNC (RP-TNC) plug and one RP-TNC jack connector attached. This allows for connection to the radio unit and to the interconnect cable supplied on the antenna.

Connectors

According to the U.S. Federal Code of Regulations, products used in the 2.4- and 5-GHz ISM bands manufactured after June 1994 must either use connectors that are unique and nonstandard (meaning not readily available on the market) or be designed to be professionally installed (“professional” here indicates a person trained in RF installation and regulations). Since many of the 2.4-GHz products are installed by non-RF-trained personnel, these products must comply with the unique connector rule. The Cisco outdoor access and bridge products are designed for installation by an RF professional, and therefore may use a standard N-style connector. Cisco Aironet indoor products use RP-TNC connectors. While these are similar to the normal TNC connectors, they cannot be mated to the standard connectors.

Cisco has recently introduced a new multi-RF connector known as DART. DART connectors can support four or eight RF signals along with several electrical pins. Cisco developed the DART connector to simplify installations and to create a single insertion cable to go along with a new line of self-identifying antennas (SIA) containing circuitry to automate provisioning and detection.

To ensure compatibility with Cisco products, use antennas and cabling from Cisco.

Mounting hardware

Each antenna requires some type of mounting. The standard dipole antenna simply connects to the RP-TNC connector on the unit. Mast-mount antennas are designed to mount to a variety of mast diameters, and each comes with mounting hardware for attachment. Patch antennas are designed to mount flat against a wall or ceiling, and ceiling-mount antennas are equipped with a drop-ceiling cross-member attachment.

For most indoor applications, a .75- or 1-inch electrical conduit provides a suitable mounting. For outdoor applications, use a heavy galvanized or aluminum wall mast that will withstand the wind-loading rating of the selected antenna.

Lightning arrestors

When using outdoor antenna installations, it is always possible that an antenna will suffer damage from charges developing on the antenna and cable, or surges induced from nearby lightning strikes. The Cisco Aironet lightning arrestor is designed to protect 2.4-GHz to 5-GHz radio equipment from static electricity and lightning-induced surges that travel on coaxial transmission lines. Both systems need to be properly grounded as identified in the hardware installation manuals of the products. These protection mechanisms will not prevent damage in the event of a direct lightning hit.

Theory of operation

The Cisco Aironet Lightning Arrestor (Figure 3) prevents energy surges from reaching the RF equipment by shunting them to the ground. Surges are limited to less than 50 volts, in about 0.0000001 second (100 nanoseconds). A typical lightning surge is about 0.000002 second (2 microseconds).

Cisco Aironet Lightning Arrestor

Figure 3.               

Cisco Aironet Lightning Arrestor

The accepted IEEE transient (surge) suppression is 0.000008 second (8 microseconds). The Cisco Aironet Lightning Arrestor is a 50-ohm transmission line with a gas discharge tube positioned between the center conductor and ground. This gas discharge tube changes from an open circuit to a short circuit almost instantaneously in the presence of voltage and energy surges, providing a path to ground for the energy surge.

Installation

This arrestor is designed to be installed between your antenna cable and the Aironet access point. Installation should be indoors or inside a protected area. A good ground must be attached to the arrestor. This can be accomplished by attaching a ground lug to the arrestor and using a heavy wire (number 6 solid copper) to connect the lug to a good earth ground.
