AIR-ANT2440NV-R Installation

Hi,guys

     Recently, I'm going to install AIR-ANT2440NV-R antenna for AIR-CAP3502E-C-K9. The Cisco document for AIR-ANT2440NV-R says it can be installed outdoor. But I'm worried about the line conneted between the antenna and the AP. Does it need to be protected from the complex outdoor environment?

That can be used outdoors. You just need to follow some basic steps when installing antennas outside.

You need coax seal to cover any openings and connectors, make sure you have a drip loop and make sure you mount the antenna the correct way, cable on the bottom.

I have used these and others outdoors, but I also have installed a lightning arrestor in each antenna lead prior to connecting to the AP just for protection.
