We’re deploying new WIFI towers at several of our vacation resorts and have decided to migrate from Wireless G to Wireless N access points.
We currently have the following in each WIFI tower – Hotspot
1 x 25mbps/5mbps circuit (inside air conditioned shed)
1 x Cisco 881 router (inside air conditioned shed)
3 x Cisco 1310 AP’s (inside air conditioned shed)
3 x Luxul Wireless - 2.4 GHz, 1 Watt Outdoor Amplifier (inside air conditioned shed)
1 x 25 foot three pillar antenna mast.
3 x 30 foot TNC cables
1 x PCtel 2.4 GHz ISM All Terrain Sectorized Omnidirectional Antenna (offset 5-10 deg down )
I’ve been researching and speaking to our partner pre-sales team, and have narrowed the choice down to deploying 3 x AIR-AP1261N-x-K9 at each of our towers. I have been unable to find suitable replacements to the 1watt Luxul 2.4ghz amplifiers we’re using, or really good N sector antennas to mount to the top of our masts.
The 1260’s are all 802.af, so besides getting power injectors there shouldn’t be to much to think about.
Do any of you guys/galls have any suggestions for suitable N sector antennas , or suggestions?
Is there specific antennas I can use to utilize the 2x3 MIMO feature of these AP’s?
