Need Help to design solid wide angle antenna for NLoS - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings All!

New around here! I have a outdoor 2x2 MIMO WiFi radio which has dual linear x-polarization antenna ports and need to design a 90* sector antenna in 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz for solid wide angle coverage for outdoor to indoor coverage in Non-LoS mode to achieve max wall penetration.

The TX output power of this radio is 22dBm.

My question is: What should be the optimum design for this Antenna which can generate max solid angle horizontal and vertical solid angle coverage. Should the 3db dual linear H/V pattern be about 90*/25*? My object is to cover maximum floors and provide good wall penetration with least amount of APs generating max array and diversity gain? PLEASE HELP!

God bless!
