Low Loss cable length

I have to install Aironet 350 wireless bridge, but the distance between anteena and bridge will be more then 75metre (due to some LOS issues at site) so how can I have low loss cable of 75m when from Cisco, maximum 150ft cable is available??

Re: Low Loss cable length

LMR-400 is considered 'low-loss', but LMR-600 has even less loss and LMR-900 loss is exteremly low.

Your loss at 75 meters would be approximately:

LMR-600 - 10dB

LMR-900 - 6.5dB

You'll probably never find RP\TNC connectors, so plan on using Type N and N-to-RP\TNC jumpers to connect to the bridges.

Re: Low Loss cable length

I have found an excellent source of custom and pre-made cables from Fleeman Anderson & Bird Corp http://www.fab-corp.com/ I have dealt with them on numerous occasions with excellent results and quick turn around. They will even make custom cables with the required RP\TNC connectors on them eliminating losses associated with multiple adaptors.

Note to anyone checking out their site they do offer several amplifiers for the 2.4 & 5.8 Ghz bands. Please consult a knowledgeable engineer before attempting to extend your range in this fashion and always use good grounding practices.
