I am planning a new install with 1250 APs. This structure is steel so I have to plan for both indoor and outdoor AP deployments. Indoors, I am planning to use the 5gHz radios in order to allow for more channels, Outdoor I am lookng for advice on which frequency to use. Any one have an opinion?
Follow-on questions are:
-If the outdoor AP needs to be installed in a location about 40 feet from an omni antenna, what is the range and throughout I can expect for the 1250 with a 8db antenna? A 6db antenna? Assume cabling is LMR400.
-Will the 1250 allow for use of just a single remote omni antenna? If it could only have a single coax connection to the 1250, what would the effect be on the range and throughput?
