What Is A Parabolic Grid Antenna?

The most Parabolic grids are shaped like a dish and is popularly called a dish antenna or parabolic dish. The main advantage of a parabolic antenna is that it is highly directional. This type of directional antenna has the some of the highest gain.

Parabolic dish is usually used to for point to point, such as router to Access point or for networking, computer to computer by wireless. Parabolic dishes are used for data communications, satellite communications, spacecraft communication antennas and in radio telescopes.

The Parabolic grid is more of a narrow beam used to direct signal in one direction. This type of antenna is used to send and receive signal in one direction over long distances. The wavelengths are visually like that similar to a flashlight spectrum.

When parabolic grids are used in a multi-point to point network, the grids are pointed to a central access point which is omni directional antenna or a dipole antenna.
