External LTE antenna with cable for MX67C?

I have an MX67C at a remote location.  I have a tertiary LTE SIM installed in it.  It is installed in a cabinet, door closed, of course.  The LTE signal is being impacted (shocking).  Are there any external antennas that are supported that I can try? It's be nice to be able to mount them on top of the cabinet.

 

Thanks!

Kind of a big deal

The official answer is:

Can I change the antennas to improve my performance?

The MX68CW has fixed antennas for Wi-Fi and LTE that cannot be swapped. For the MX67C, only Meraki antennas are supported. Replacement antennas will be available for purchase.

 

If my antennae are lost or damaged, can I use 3rd party antennae that fit on the Meraki device?

Only the Meraki antennae are supported. Lost or malfunctioning antennae can be replaced by contacting Meraki support. 

 

That said, the connector on the MX67C is RP-SMA so you're welcome to try. People have done it. Keep the cable as short as possible though. See these topics:
