Repeat Wireless 1000 ft. to Satellite Office with Cisco Products.

We  have an arrangement with a Neighboring business and their ISP (yes it's  approved by the ISP or WISP, rather!) to use their internet.

They have provided us a guest network on their Ubiquiti Access Point.

So  we need to take the wireless signal from the neighboring  network 100ft  away & retransmit about 1000ft away in a straight line.

I realize we will lose bandwidth when we repeat the signal.

Can i do this with some Aironet AP's? Or what is the simplest way with Cisco Products to connect two distant points wirelessly?

The only way is probably to bridge the signal over to the other location. Now it depends on clear line of site between the two locations. Cisco has the 1300 and 1400 that are EOS or you can look at the Cisco Exalt r5005 bridges.

Thanks! The Exaltr5005 looks very interesting. I wonder why Cisco is using a partner to provide this service?

Whar about the 1400 with the parabolic antenna?

"Data rates of 54 Mbps can be enabled for  point-to-point links up to 8.5 miles, and for point-to-multipoint links  up to 2.75 miles. Aggregate throughput can be obtained in excess of 28  Mbps. Also, by using higher gain antennas or lower data rates, ranges in  excess of 20 miles point-to-point can be covered."

One of the articles stated something about an aironet 1550

Cisco sort of stopped making bridges and that is why they resell the exalts. The exalts work well and they too have great support. The 1500 and 1550's are mesh units that also require a wlc. They cost more and don't give you the range the exalt would give you. You can go either way, it's just up to you.
