Got a design question here. For hallways with offices on each side of the corridor, or hallways with corners, which AP do you like best? Internal or external? If external, which antenna have you had the best success with?
I dont think we are addressing other issues you might have with a hallway design. Let me share a few items.
1. If you plan on just data with a few users per ap you will be fine with either, but you really should do a survey and map the coverage.
2. If you plan on voice or heavy data and video hallway is not the way to go regarless of antenna. You need to place aps in the rooms.
3. If you do a hallway deisgn, note RRM may not work for you. APs will see each. Your CSMA will be jacked up as well.
Let me share with you 2 pics. Same ap, same area .. you will see the RF for yourself.
If any of this is helpful please support the rating system.

Your two pictures paint a good picture of the problem. Placing the AP in the Hallway itself does not provide good coverage for the offices along the corridor. With offices on both sides what have you done in some of your designs.
