IAP-114 and external antennas choices

I have a customer asking for external antennas, low profile, etc.

I have not had any experience with the type of external antennas that are offered and was wondering if the ones I chose are correct for the type of AP.

 

Can the following antennas work?

AP-ANT-13B (pack of 3)

AP-ANT-16?

Both are low profile, 13B allows the placement of the antenna in different areas.

 

What about the cable to purchase with these antennas to connect back to the IAP? Does it come with one? is it separate?

Either antenna will work.  The 13B has higher gain in 5GHz than the -16.   All three of the AP-ANT-13B, however, need to be mounted in the same place for proper operation similar to the photo below.   Both antenna come with pigtail cables.

 

For more information refer to the Antenna Matrix here: http://www.arubanetworks.com/pdf/products/matrix-antennas.pdf

and the Installation Guides here: http://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/EntryId/279/Default.aspx

 

Also, please describe the requirements of the application so we can make sure these are the correct antenna for the project.
