Antennas can be broadly classified as omnidirectional and directional antennas, which depends on the directionality. An omnidirectional antenna is an antenna system which radiates power uniformly in one plane with a directive pattern shape in a perpendicular plane. This pattern is often described as "donut shaped". Omni antennas provide a 360 degree horizontal radiation pattern. These are used when coverage is required in all directions (horizontally) from the antenna with varying degrees of vertical coverage. Omnidirectional antenna can be used to link multiple directional antenna in outdoor point-to-multipoint communication systems including cellular phone connections and TV broadcasts.
