The HD2 Dome is a fantastic new product from Peplink, with various mounting options it is a great product for vehicle installations, or land-based installations, where running long coaxial cables for external antenna isn’t an option. The HD2 dome is IP67 rated and powered via PoE – so a single CAT5 / CAT 6 cable is all that is required. In particular, this is an ideal product for the maritime installations, allowing the router to be mounted high on the mast and with the SIM Injector install on the bridge, swapping SIMS becomes easy.

This technology is an excellent way to ensure the router is as close as possible to the antenna, whilst providing easy access to the SIMS – especially useful in the Maritime Sector, as mentioned by Sam Norris in the mPCE webinars : New Peplink Certification
