I got a small boggle about the do's and don?ts of mounting 1131AG access points.
It states clearly that you should not mount the AP's within 3ft of any metal object.
The install guide has illustrations of APs being mounted either under the ceiling tiles or suspended just above the ceiling tiles with special brackets.
I'm about to install 192 AP's into a high rise office complex. The Architects are hell bent on mounting the AP's , over the ceiling tiles, in the ceiling cavity directly onto the above reinforced concrete floor.
My site survey was done, mounting the AP's to the under side of the removable ceiling. And all worked fine that way.
Does any see a problem or has ever experience a problem, mounting the AP's mounting plate directly onto reinforced concrete?
Will the reinforced concrete inhibit or change the characteristics of the wireless signal even thou the AP is aiming away from the concrete?
Keeping in mind that the roof of each floor is also littered with metal Air Con ducts, high voltage wiring and fire sprinkler piping.
