Q. What cable length options are there for the Puma Antenna?
There are 3 cables available for the Puma Antenna:
⚬ Option 1 – 1ft/0.3m) For any short-range deployments between the router and the antenna
⚬ Option 2 – 6.5ft/2m) For middle range deployments.
⚬ Option 3 – 16ft/4.8m) For long-range deployments, this will require a short pigtail (Puma-xxx-Q-x-1) plus an extension cable (EXC-xQ-15).
Q. Why QMA is better than SMA/N-type to an extension cable?
QMA connectors are designed as snap-on locking replacement for the standard SMA connectors. In the case of an extension, using a QMA connector is quick to install and prevents any dispatch in the future in comparison to SMA or N-types.
