Hi Nasir,

I think you can use the mesh AP as a PTP link. But you have to enable ethernet bridging to achieve this.

check this: http://tiny.cc/325yiw

If this works for the 1Km distance, that all depends on your antenna.

Check mesh deployment guide about how to implement Point-to-Point links (enable ethernet bridging and that is it)

That is pretty far for mesh especially for omni antennas on the 1552. You should go with a PTP bridge. Cisco sells the Exalt r5005 that will get you 160mbps.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the information, but i guess Exalt r5005 is not oderable from Cisco directly ?

If not Cisco Aironet 1550 AP , what about 1520, 1300, 1400 AP ???
