Poynting Antennas

If you or your clients are looking for a Fixed Wireless Access solution, you’ll need an antenna to pick up signals from your local cell masts.  Whilst some assume that the small plastic ‘bunny-ear’ antennas that come with a 4G router will do the job just fine, the antenna is as crucial to your LTE network deployments as a solid set of tyres is to a Ferrari.  You wouldn’t drive a supercar with a terrible, cheap set of 3rd-hand tyres, so if your want your network devices to grip strongly to that wireless signal then, just like a good set of tyres, you’ll want to invest in a good antenna.  And when it comes to antennas, you’d be hard-pressed to find any better than Poynting’s.

With a product line that runs the gamut from 5G-ready directional and omnidirectional antennas, LTE and WiFi antennas, and antennas purpose-built to handle any use case you could think of including IoT, B2B, transport, marine and mining antennas, Poynting does it all.


Poynting's PUCK-5 omni-directional, ruggedised LTE antenna

If you’re looking for a discreet antenna resilient enough to withstand even the harshest conditions, Poynting’s tiny PUCK antennas are perfect. Famously able to survive being run over with a Land Rover without so much as a scratch, these small units like the Poynting PUCK-5 are IP68 rated against corrosion, as well as water and dust ingress. Their small size and resilience make them perfect for remote or exposed locations where you need to leave an antenna and trust that, no matter what it goes through in the interim, it will still be functioning optimally in a couple of years’ time.

If you’re installer looking for a Fixed Wireless Access solution, though, you’ll likely be looking at one of Poynting’s XPOL solutions (XPOL-1 variants for omni-directional applications, XPOL-2 variants for directional applications).

Another distinct star in Poynting’s track record; whilst many antenna manufacturers don’t publish the radiation patterns for their products, preferring to hide behind misleading antenna gain statistics, Poynting freely publishes all radiation pattern data for their products. This is a testament not only to their honesty as a company but also to how confident they are in the performance of their products. Head to the NetXL product page for any Poynting antenna and review the data sheets yourselves to see firsthand the uniformity of Poynting antenna radiation patterns.

If you’re looking to install or consult on a new 4G network deployment, then Poynting antennas are a superb choice. What’s more, on top of our already very competitive pricing, NetXL is a direct distributor of Poynting antennas, meaning you’ll get a better price with us than you would anywhere else.

Teltonika 4G Routers

The perfect accompaniment for your new Poynting antennas, Teltonika 4G routers and modems are built to last. Ruggedised and durable, units like the Teltonika RUT955 feature everything you need to make a stable, reliable LTE internet connection a reality. With room for two SIM slots, the RUT955 offers redundancy measures for a business or home network, or even a handy backup for those remote camping trips.


Teltonika RUT955 ruggedised LTE router

The more compact Teltonika RUT240 can be managed remotely with Teltonika’s remote management system (RMS), making these units particularly useful for industrial applications where many different units need to be set up at various locations and managed centrally by a single team. For Fixed Wireless Access applications where a single business has taken out a contract for connectivity redundancy across all of their sites, but these require central management, such a model is perfect.  This model is capable of delivering speeds of up to 150Mbps across 4G, making it great for either M2M industrial applications or personal internet browsing.

As an irrefutable stamp of approval, large-scale ISPs, mobile and automotive companies throughout Europe all choose Teltonika as their tool of choice when it comes to wireless connectivity. When used in conjunction with Poynting antennas, you really do create for yourself the best wireless connectivity solution possible.

Like Poynting antennas, NetXL is a direct distributor of Teltonika products, meaning you can get your hands on those 3G/4G modems and routers at the best prices, along with the same great service you’re used to from us.  In conjunction with volume pricing and the special terms afforded to you by your Trade Account, the savings become even greater, so don’t forget to take advantage of your Trade Account if you have one!  If you think you may be eligible, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your options; we’d love to hear from you.

Lithe Audio

Whether your LTE hardware is serving as a redundancy measure in a client’s business or is providing your luxury camper with its own hub of connectivity, wouldn’t it be cool if you could use that extra juice to fuel a wireless audio system?

Traditionally, a ceiling speaker audio system would require pulling long lengths of cable through floors, walls or ceilings in order to get everything powered and connected to a dedicated amplifier. A hassle in a home and an impossibility in a camper. Today, though, there’s a new option available.

New to NetXL, Lithe Audio’s wireless ceiling speakers bring high fidelity sound to your ceiling without having to wait for a full renovation-scale project in order to install them. Rather than having to be almost exclusively installed in new builds where the cabling can be pre-planned, Lithe Audio’s ceiling speakers feature a built-in amplifier and, ingeniously, can be powered directly from the lighting circuit.


Lithe Audio's wireless WiFi ceiling speaker

And what about a mobile home? Well, with both Bluetooth speakers and WiFi speakers available, so long as your mobile device is connected to the internet, you’ll be able to connect to your ceiling speakers too. This makes them perfect for portable buildings/units like those used by building site managers, too. Say goodbye to that tinny portable radio and say hello to the twenty-first century by installing a set of Lithe Audio wireless ceiling speakers in the site office/mess hall.

These design elements mean that Lithe Audio speakers can be retrofitted into your home (stationary or mobile) at any time in a four-step installation process that is, essentially, a DIY project. If you’re not feeling confident in your DIY skills, the job is simple enough that your favourite local handyman should be able to get the job done in a couple of hours, keeping costs down nicely.

And, if you’re an IT consultant or network installer, this should be good news too. You won’t need to attend any special training seminars in order to learn how to get these units installed. The skills you have already should be more than enough to get these units installed for a client. In this way you can upsell your customer on an exciting new product at minimal additional cost or hassle to them, leaving you with an even more thrilled customer and more money in your pocket.


Lithe Audio Wireless Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker

If all of the above weren’t enough, Lithe Audio Bluetooth speakers are compatible with all your favourite smart home devices, including the Google Nest line of products and Amazon Alexa, while the WiFi models are Apple Airplay 2 compatible, meaning you can group sets of speakers together and zone them off to play in unison, all using the native capabilities of your iPhone.

Android users aren’t left out, though, with the Lithe Audio app and DLNA options available to achieve the same ends.


IT consultants, network hardware installers and consumers alike can benefit from a strong, stable LTE connectivity solution. With Poynting and Teltonika, you have a combination that can deliver just that and, in NetXL, a distributor who can deliver the goods you need in a timely manner and at great prices.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a redundancy measure for your existing home network or for a dedicated internet connectivity solution when you’re on the road, a 4G or 5G wireless connection and some Lithe Audio ceiling speakers can keep you entertained and connected in ways that eliminate the usual sacrifices.

If you’re a Trade Account customer, don’t forget that your special terms with us mean that you can get your hands on any of the kit mentioned in this article at preferential pricing or on credit, so be sure to take advantage of this by placing your next order with us soon.

Finally, if you’re an existing customer active in the industry and you’re interested in a Trade Account with us, get in touch at a time that suits you and we’d be happy to discuss your situation and run through your options.  Combined with our in-house expertise, competitive standard pricing, volume pricing discounts and next day delivery available for orders placed even after the working day has ended and those with a NetXL Trade Account truly have all they’d ever need from a network hardware distributor in one place.
