Cisco 1552 Mesh AP Point-to-Point Bridge Application

I have two 1552 Cisco Mesh APs.  I want to use it solely as a bridge application from one location to another.  I am trying to find out what my max distance of my Bridge link could be.  I have a distance of 1.6 miles to get across.  And what antenna you guys recommend.  Obviously, it would end up being a directional antenna.  Not to sure the patch antennas cisco recommends would work.  What do you think?

Hi Fernando,

The links below should get you started on what to expect and what should go into your calculation:

Range Calculator for 1552:

Now, for that range you will more than likely be using a directional as you stated.  The db required from the calculator should give you a good idea of which directional antenna to choose.

Cheers,
Erwin
