Working Principle and Installation Position

An ODU is an LTE wireless signal receiving and transmission unit. You are advised to install ODUs in open areas without obstacles on suitable walls, balconies, and roofs. You can power on an ODU to test signal quality and choose a location with better signal quality for installation.

B2368 ODU can be installed at various locations, including planes, slopes, walls, and poles (horizontally or vertically).

You do not need to adjust the ODU angle thanks to a unique design of ODU. Pay attention to the following notes when selecting an insatllation location:

  • An ODU must be within the lightning rod protection scope (45 degrees) to avoid being damaged by a lightning strike. If an ODU is installed on a rooftop, the ODU must be less than 2 m above the rooftop.
  • ODU performance varies according to the installation position and nearby obstacles, especially metal objects. You are advised to install an ODU in an open area without obstacles.
