KP Performance Antennas has introduced a new line of 6GHz, Wi-Fi 6E capable sector antennas for indoor and outdoor applications, including large arenas and stadiums.

Its new Wi-Fi 6E sector antennas provide high performance and throughput while supporting frequencies from 2.3GHz to 7.2GHz. They provide 17dBi to 20dBi gain, 65-degree and 90-degree coverage and 2x2 MIMO port options for enhanced speed, versatile coverage, and less interference.

These new sector antennas come with universal radio brackets for simple installation and are shorter than 40", adhering to universal zoning compliance. They also provide Type-N connectors, 1200MHz of extra bandwidth availability, and dual slant +/-45-degree polarisation.

Employing these sector antennas with the extra 1200MHz available in the 6GHz Wi-Fi 6E band enabldes users to reach speeds up to 1Gbps to 2Gbps. The antennas work on 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks and enable future-proof network capabilities with no need for antenna changes.

“Our new sector antennas are first-in-the-market for covering the latest frequency band of unlicensed 6GHz bands, including Wi-Fi 6E. They are designed to deliver high performance for a variety of indoor and outdoor network applications. They enhance the performance of radios and deliver a competitive price-to-performance advantage,” said Kevin Hietpas, antenna product line manager.
