How does the LAP1041n work?

I have an AP, model AIR-LAP1041N-A-K9. How does the AP  work? How does the AP broadcast?. Is It a circle and the AP is the  center? Does the AP broadcast more front than back? Have any blind spot?

I see the datasheet (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5678/ps11203/data_sheet_c78-609338.html) -

Integrated Antenna

• 2.4 GHz, gain 4.0 dBi, horizontal beamwidth 360°

This is not many information.

Also the 1040 units should be mounted on a wall or on a drop down celling to get the best performance out of it.

In the simplest of term, the 1040, 1130, 1140, 3500, 3600 have a similar wireless signal propagation pattern.  And that is like a ball:  360 x 360.

Note that I said "like a ball" and not "exactly like a ball".  It's not a perfect circle but it's "round".
