Is CISCO AP 1200 mountable on the ceiling ?

Unanswered Question
Feb 8th, 2007

I am unable to find any reference to mounting the AP 1200 on the ceiling.

Does anyone know or have any experience

with mounting the AP 1200 on the ceiling.

We need to install about 22 of them all on the ceiling. I would appreciate a quick reply. Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

Hi Seshan,

The 1200 AP's can be mounted on the ceiling using the bracket that shipped with the AP's. Have a look at the instructions;

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point Hardware Installation Guide

Mounting Instructions

From this doc;

Hope this helps!

Hi Seshan,

You are most welcome :) Best of luck with your project, it sounds like you have alot of work ahead of you. Make sure you use the locking hasp mechanism to prevent the AP from sliding out of the bracket when mounting on the horizontal.

Take care,

I am using 1200 AP's and found a ceiling tile replacement that works wery well, keeps them secure and makes it easy to access them. Go to and check out their product. Hope that helps.

If you have a susupended ceiling with T-rails seperating tiles any of the solutions listed in the link sent by Rob will work.

Make sure there is not much clutter in the ceiling, it is always advisable to remove the ceiling tile and replace it with housing for AP as Chris is suggesting. This way the signal will distribute uniformly and you don't need to worry about flapping rubber duck antennas in the ceiling. You will know where the APs are located and it will look neat too.

I've mounted these in T-bar suspended ceilings and have had no problems. The T-bar clip was included in the kit (for the 1230, at least).

I have also used the aluminum bracket to mount them to a harder ceiling, again with no problems.

After doing this, make sure you adjust the antennae correctly (quick site re-survey).

Thanks to everyone who responded. We have now revised our plans to mount them on the walls. I found information on the mouting bracket.
