Hey all, I need some assistance picking hardware for the following:
Site A is the main office. Site B is about 500 yards away, direct line of sight, and will only connect to Site A. Site C is about 100 yards away, direct line of sight, and will only connect to Site A. All buildings are single story, and I have full access to rooftops to mount anything.
I was thinking (3) Aironet 1300's, but I've only ever deployed access points for end users, not for point to point bridging.
Which antenna's do I want to use? Two antennas at Site A, or is there a multipoint antenna that I can use? Any issue with placing the AP's inside the buildings and running cable out to the antennas? Aironet 1300's support this type of config?
That all looks right.
You can certainly use the integrated patch model at the remote sites if you prefer. (I just noticed that they're the same price as the connectorized ones, so that saves you the whole price of the external antenna.)
