Re: Wireless Outdoor Bridge

Hi,

1300 AP/Bridge comes in two configuration. One comes with the integrated antenna. So there is no need of external antennas. The first three configurations mentioned by you corresponds to AP with integrated antenna. 13dBi represents the antenna gaint. Normally the integrated antenna has a gain of 13dBi.

The second model is where you dont have any integrated antenna. Insted you have external connectors(RP-TNC) in order to connect external antennas according to your requirement. So the last three configurations corresponds to this category.

FCC, ETSI and TELEC are different regulatory domains defined by Cisco. Depending on your location different domains have been defined where you will be having some predefined regulations. Also based on the AP/Bridge you want to purchase you need to check with the regulatory domain whether its allowed for shipment in your country.

Following link will help you identifying which regulatory domain you need to select based on your country and you can check if that particular model is allowed to be shipped in your country.
