  • Page 45: Site Survey

    For a directional link with a single antenna, there is only one RF path. For an omnidirectional antenna, determine all RF paths. The RF path can be determined by knowing the relative bearing from the current site to adjacent sites. Nokia RoofTop™ Wireless Router Installation Guide...

  • Page 46

    Select the antenna type to be used The wireless router is supplied with an omnidirectional antenna, but on rare occasions a directional antenna may need to be used, depending on area and topography. (See also Section 3.1.2 Antenna selection, below) Nokia RoofTop™ Wireless Router Installation Guide...

  • Page 47: Line Of Sight Analysis

    Visual line of sight exists when an imaginary straight line can be drawn between two antennas without passing through any physical obstructions. Verifying visual line of sight is the first step in planning the Nokia Wireless Router System installation. Observation points must be high enough to allow the viewer to see over ground based obstructions.

  • Page 48: Antenna Selection

    3.1.2 Antenna selection 3.1.2.1 General In most installations, it is not necessary to be concerned about antenna selection. The Nokia Wireless Router is supplied with an omnidirectional antenna which is good for most installations. Nokia RoofTop™ Wireless Router Installation Guide...

    Directional antennas are useful for long distance or point-to-point NOTE: contacts, but prevent future growth of the network, by preventing the wireless router from repeating signals to other units. They should be used only when where an omnidirectional antenna will not work. Nokia RoofTop™ Wireless Router Installation Guide...
