Dual-band Omni External Antenna

Answered Question
Aug 18th, 2013
User Badges:

Hello,


Can someone recommend me a dual-band omni antenna for connection to a Cisco 3600? For use indoors.


I have found this:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/antenna/installation/guide/ant2544v4m-r.html


But it seems a bit overkill for what I need. All I want is a small profile indoor antenna I can connect to the AP.


I require the antenna so that the AP can be mounted vertically with the antenna sticking out the top so as to create the correct coverage pattern


Thanks

Hi Kashif,


This document link you've posted is already OUTDATED.   All the antenna's in this PDF are valid up to the AP1250.  The antenna required for the 3600, as what is stated by the OP, is totally different.


Antennas for the newer generation of Cisco APs which are dual-band radios, go here.

Look at Table 5, 6 & 7.


If "low profile" is what you are looking for, then the ceiling-mounted AIR-ANT2524V4C-R is your best bet.
