For years we have used Aironet 1200, 1240 and 1250 as enclosed outdoor bridges. 5ghz has been used for backhaul and 2,4ghz for client use.
Usually 5ghz radios is in Root or Non-root bridge with Wireless Clients and 2,4ghz radio i Root bridge with Wireless Clients. Mimo is nice to have but not critical so Aironet AP1242AG has been our favourite workhorse to a fair price. Even the old 1200 series has served us well, but lack of MFP is now causing problems with newer Windows 8.1 devices.
Sadly 1242 is EOL and Ciscos advice for us is to us the 1530 series, but the price is stiff. Anyone know if the Aironet 1600, 2600 or 2700e series could support the same roles as the 12xx AG series?
Yes i see the roles are supported, but can the antenna ports be mapped to each radio? Thought the new radios had dual band ports. For instance the 1602e has 3 antenna ports, so can we map one port to radio0 and one or two ports to radio1?
I think this could work in some way if could assign lets say antenna A to radio1 a plain 5ghz antenna for backhaul. Radio0 then assigned to A and B (or more) with 2,4ghz antennas. Antenna A port would be used for 2,4ghz, but with no compatible antenna it doesnt matter. Not optimal for diversity, but i assume it could work since no 2,4ghz signal can run on the 5ghz antenna anyway. Maybe we order a 1602e to do a field test.
