    Netvanta 161 - Approved External Antenna's

    wjlawrence New Member

      I am trying to find an approved or supported external antenna for the 161.

       

      Can anyone point me in the correct direction?  Either Omni or Patch..

       

      Thank you

          For external antenna options (other than the omni's available directly from Adtran), we recommend you contact Tessco (http://www.tessco.com) and talk to their engineers about your specific requirements. They are quite familiar with our BlueSocket product line and offer 3rd party antenna solutions like patch, hi-gain, cables, mountings, etc. The key in your specific situation is that the NetVanta 161 is the same as the BlueSocket model 1840 (BSAP-1840) just with a different firmware load, so from Tessco's point of view the antenna options for the BSAP-1840 and the NV161 are identical.
