I am reviewing a design for a Hospital Campus environment with approx. 400 "1252AGs". These APs have the AIR-ANT2430V-R (for 2.4GHz) and AIR-ANT5140V-R (5 GHz) antennas installed in them.
But, here is the kicker.
Checking their configurations in WCS I noticed that they are all configured for the AIR-ANT2460 (2.4GHz) and AIR-ANT5135D-R (5GHz) Antennas?
My question is, what are the effects toward the client if the wrong Antenna is selected in the configuration? According to the configuration, if those antennas are selected, they are non-MIMO. Is there a good way to test the effects of not having the correct Antenna configured? I do have the Cisco Spectrum Expert. I'm looking for ways to test for MIMO too if possible.
I'm also checking to see if MIMO functionality is related to software level. I am planning to upgrade the environment to 6.x or 7.x in the future, but would like to know if MIMO is availabily on 4.2. I do know that Client Link/ Beamforming does not look to be available on the 4.2 release.
I am also looking for a way to run a report that shows the Antennas configured per AP. Right now I have WCS/WLC 188.8.131.52 and have not found a way to do it. If anyone does know, I would appreciate it.
