Increase AP power

I have 3 APs 3601I  that have outside antennaes. Trucks dump the video output to a server over this wireless SSID. They are asking if I can increase the power so the trucks can connect out in the parking lot. They are set to a coverage level of 12 db should I increase this? or decrease it?

Won't work.   If you want to

Won't work.  

 

If you want to "increase" the AP power (if you could, that is), then the trucks can hear the signal from the AP but the AP can't hear the signals from your trunks.  Wireless is a two-way-street in relations to transmission.   SO for this scheme to work, both ends must be able to hear each other.  

 

The only way to maximize signals from the Trunk park is to deploy MESH AP.
