Aironet 1500 & 1300


Q1.I think it is Mandatory to order antennas for Cisco aironet 1310 with RP-TNC type connectors, right?

Q.2 The Aironet 1310 with integrated antenna is not a good solution to be installed out of the building for mobile wi-fi users, right?

Q3. Aironet 1310 can be installed out of the building? i.e: for weather conditions.

Q4. Is it Mandatory to order an antennas for Cisco Aironet 1500 series? or can be installed without an antenna?

Q5. i think we can order one antenna 2.4GHz for any aironet device, not Mandatory to order two antennas?

Thanks in advance

Hi a.hajhamad,

Here is some info in answer to your questions:

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge

From this doc:

Access Point

Engineered specifically for harsh outdoor environments, yet also capable in indoor deployments, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is ideal for wireless LANs (WLANs) requiring external access points. The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is WiFi-certified as an access point and also supports the innovative features available with Cisco Aironet and Cisco Compatible client devices.

• Wide operating temperature range of -22°F to 131°F (-30° to +55°C)

• Meets NEMA 4 and IP56 specifications for harsh environments

• Captured antenna for easy mounting and support for external antennas including existing Cisco Aironet 2.4-GHz antennas

The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series provides the 802.11g interface for access-point capability or bridge connections. By placing the unit outdoors, close to the antenna, you can minimize the wireless cable losses-thereby maximizing the range of the network. The unit is available with either an integrated antenna, or with connectors for external antennas (Figure 4). The high-gain integrated antenna is designed for easy installations of point-to-point links or non-root nodes of point-to-multipoint networks. The nonintegrated antenna version provides professional installers with an RP-TNC connector that allows the deployment of omni-directional, sector, or high-gain dish antennas for specific application requirements.

• Air-BR1310G-x-k9: Air interface (integrated directional antenna)

• AIR-BR1310G-x-k9-R: Two RP-TNC type connectors for external antennas
