Greetings and Good day, trust you are doing good.
I have recently purchased the RAK811 LPWAN Breakout Module from RAK store.
This module integrates both SMA and iPEX antenna connectors. As such, I wanted to know how long can we extend the antenna cable? Either using
Option 1: using SMA
Connecting the RAK811 with RP-SMA to N-Type Cable
Option 2: Using iPEX
Connecting the RAK811 with iPex to N-type Cable
The main reason for me to ask this question is, basically, I am placing the RAK811 inside a data cabinet which mainly consists of steel (on either side, top, and bottom).
Thus, I wanted to make sure data availability, as a solution I was thinking of an antenna extension from the RAK811 module using either of the above options, I would require around 4.2m extension.
Is this the correct/best practice way in doing so?. Can someone please advise?
