802.11a Mesh Outdoors with 5500 controller

Hi

I am working on a project that will involve 5500 controllers managing 1260 series N rate A/Ps. There may be a requirement for MESH but my previous experience using Motorola 802.11a radios is that random, intermittent radio detections resulted in the MESH network having to keep re-forming resulting in less than 100% availability.

What's peoples experience in the UK is 802.11a outdoors?

Ideally i would prefer to use 2.4GHz and repeater access points for those areas not serviced with data connection but I cant find any info' so far on how whether the 5500 controller is able to manage repeater access points.

Any guidance or experiences much appreciated

I don't live or have done work in the UK so can't answer your first question, but for your other question... The wlc does not manage any APs configured as a repeater.

Thanks Scott for clarifying the second point.
