How does panel antenna work?

A panel antenna is a directional antenna, which means it only sends and receives radio signals from a single direction. Unlike Yagi antennas, which typically have a very focused transmission beam, panel antennas have wider beams, which allow the signal to cover a larger area. Because it's still directional, a panel antenna usually has higher gain than an omnidirectional antenna, which basically means it can send a stronger signal and receive a weaker signal than an antenna with lower gain. When used in mobile phone signal boosting systems, we recommend using a flat panel antenna as the internal antenna. The job of the internal antenna is to take the boosted signal from the amplifier and transmit it into spaces where the signal is too weak to be useful. The internal antenna also picks up the signal from any cell phone in the area and sends it to an amplifier, which then boosts the signal and sends it to the external antenna for retransmission to the external cell phone tower. If the panel antenna is designed for outdoor use and needs to cover a larger area, it is possible to use a panel antenna as an external antenna, but in this case we generally recommend a Yagi antenna with a wide beam. Like all antennas, panel antennas are designed for specific frequencies, so if you're putting together your own kit, make sure the antenna you choose is suitable for use with the amplifier. If you've read about omnidirectional antennas, you might think that it's best to use an omnidirectional antenna as an internal antenna placed in the middle of the space.

Why using a panel antenna?


The higher gain of a panel antenna usually gives a better signal than using an omnidirectional antenna. When installing a signal booster system, there are two main options for placing a panel antenna. If your space is long and narrow, your best option is usually to mount the panel antenna on one of the short walls pointing towards the long space. This will cover the entire area with a strong signal, but may not cover the area directly to the side of the panel antenna. If you want to cover a larger space or multiple layers, a better option is to mount the panel antenna facing down on the ceiling. While this setup may appear to only cover the area directly under the antenna, in reality the radio signal from the antenna bounces off interior floors and walls, which causes the signal to spread out and cover a larger area than just covered. The area covered by the antenna beam. With this approach, a single panel antenna can cover an area of 5000 to 7000 square feet, depending on the type of space.
