I have a reqmt to deploy an outdoor wireless mesh to extend connectivity from one location to another location which is 5 kms far away. In the paths, i have a reqmt to connect switches to the mesh AP's and connect IP cameras to them. Is it possible to extend the mesh network by having a series of RAP-MAP, RAP-MAP .... by connecting the 2nd RAP to the switch connected to the first MAP ? Will this solution work ? In the below scenario, will RAP2 be made a "RAP" since it has a wired connection to the switch1 (even though the connectivity to controller is going through switch1-MAP) ? whew ! that was hard to explain !
Yes i can the bridging, but my reqmt is to put a switch at every MAP on the path and i dont have any other "wiring" available for the next RAP. So i am thinking i can use the switch connected to the MAP to be used as the "wired" interfface for the next RAP ? and then extend it in similar way till the end of 5kms ?
As Stephen mentioned, a RAP is a mesh AP that is associated to the WLC similar to a local mode AP. What you can do in you scenario is use MAPs which are 2-3 hops from the RAP and have ethernet bridging on for the MAPs for the IP cameras.
