I have to cover 2 outside areas (approx. 40x40meters each, distance between areas is approx. 110m) for data users.
For this purpose I would like to use two AP 1252 (one AP for each area) with 3 external 2,4 GHz Antennas AIR-ANT 2506 and 3 external 5 GHz antennas AIR-ANT5160V-R for each AP 1252. I’m going to place APs inside the 2 buildings (one AP in one building) and put antennas outside of the buildings.
My questions are:
1. ANT 2506 is designed as a bridge to bridge point to multipoint antenna (mast mounted) but I think, it should work ok for an AP (for Client laptop applications), doesn’t it ?
2. What is the better high to put these antennas (I have one 3 store building and one 7 store building) ?
I would place no antennae for client use higher than 40 feet above the client device. Might I suggest a 3rd part antenna with all 6 antennae inside a case hardened enclosure for outdoor use. Contact me directly for more info on this antenna.
