cisco aironet 1410 bridge integrated antenna vs sector antenna

Hi all,

i need assistance with a wireless bridge deployment , i currently have a couple of 1410 bridges with integrated antenna and a couple of 1410 bridges with sectoral antenna , please can someone tell me which one is meant to be the root and non root bridge.

i am thinking the bridges with sectoral antenna should be around my datacenter as roots while the 1410 with integrated antenna should be installed at the distributions.

can someone please clarify.

Re: cisco aironet 1410 bridge integrated antenna vs sector ante


the root or non-root role has nothing to do with the antenna. It will change nothing with that regards.

The only point of chosing root or non-root is :

-It's the root deciding the channel and power

-If it's a point to multipoint link, the root is the one centralizing everything. So in that case, it's best to have the non-root having the most directionnal antenna (pointed to the root) and the root having the most omni antenna (covering all the non-roots).

I hope it clarifies ?
