Poor Coverage 1522AG

Hi all,

I deployed wireless mesh with 3 RAP and 1 MAP (AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9 with 4 antenna) + WLC 2504.

The AIR-ANT2480V-N are instelled on pole from a height of 17-15 m.

I noticed that I can't get a good signal (front of antenna between 40m to 60m I got bettween -60 and -70 dbm) with slow connection.


1) What is the best antenna height on pilone?

2) Can I use other antenna (directional) with AIR-LAP1522AG-E-K9?

3) what is the area covered by antenna?

4) the RAP and MAP establish a neighbor between them and work with same fréquence for Mesh connection. is there any impact with that?

Thanks in advance.

I will be happy to hear your suggestion too.

Take Care.

Re: Poor Coverage 1522AG

The AP is mounted above 15-17 meters? That's over 55 feet, which is too high, even with 2.4 ghz/5 ghz 8 dBi antennas. The 1522 AP should be below 10 meters (25-30 feet)
