Aironet 1250 AP with 5.2 dBi mast mount AIR-ANT2506
Hi, I am currently deploying a wireless network using Aironet 1250 ap's. I would like to use a few of these in an outdoor setting enclosed in a NEMA enclosures. I was going to use attach a single mast mount omnidirectional antenna to these 1250's. Will this work correctly or do I have to attach three to take advantage of the MIMO technology in the 1250 model? I have tested one with a single AIR-ANT2506 5.2 Db antenna and have had good results. Just wondering if connecting two more would make a difference , because the the ceiling mount antennas that we use for the indoor installations have 3 connections to the ap. I know this may sound silly, but i could not find any literature on Cisco's site regarding this.
This feature provides support for the new antenna, AIR-ANT2451NV-R. This low-profile, omnidirectional antenna features six elements: a set of three antennas for the 2.4-GHz band and a set of three antennas for the 5-GHz band. Peak gain is 2.5-dBi in the 2.4-GHz band and 3.5-dBi in the 5-GHz band. This antenna was specifically designed for use with 802.11n access points to optimize performance.
