Classification of Outdoor Antennas

TP-Link outdoor antennas can be divided into 2 categories, including Outdoor Single-Stream Antenna and Outdoor Two-Stream MIMO Antenna. The following table lists the antenna products of each category:

Outdoor Single-Stream Antenna

Outdoor Two-Stream MIMO Antenna

TL-ANT2414A

TL-ANT2409A

TL-ANT2424B

TL-ANT2412D

TL-ANT2415D

TL-ANT2424MD (dish antenna)

TL-ANT5830MD (dish antenna)

TL-ANT2415MS (sector antenna)

TL-ANT5819MS (sector antenna)

TL-ANT2410MO (omni antenna)

 

Combinations of Antennas and APs

Note:

It is not recommended to use Outdoor Single-Stream Antennas on SOHO AP/Router for long-distance wireless transmission. The reasons are as follows:

  • SOHO AP/Router has smaller transmit power and is not suitable for high-gain antennas.
  • SOHO AP/Router is usually used for wireless coverage within 300 meters and has no Distance Settings feature. If you use SOHO AP/Router for long-distance transmission, ACK timeout cannot be calculated correctly, which will cause communication problem.
