We are deploying Cisco 1242 wireless in our campus. In a couple of our buildings we have long hallways (>200ft) with glass exterior walls. We are thinking of using Yagi AIR-ANT2410Y-R antennas to cover the long hallways.
1. Is there a way to ceiling-mount the yagi? Can I use the AIR-ACC2662 mount to hang from the ceiling so the yagi is oriented horizontally?
2. If the yagi is mounted about 12 foot above the floor, about how much area in front of the yagi won't be covered due to the angle of the signal.
3. Would there be a problem if 2 yagis are facing each other? We have a very long hallway that we're thinking of covering using yagis in the middle. If we put the yagis back to back (about 15 ft from each other) then we won't cover the middle area. So we're thinking of having them oriented facing each other to provide some coverage in the middle. (hope this makes sense).
Appreciate any information as we've never used Yagis before.
