Mesh Portal and Point (point-to-point)

Hi,

 

I'd like to know IAP 270 series to run mesh portal and point, as described at http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/InstantMobile/Advanced/Content/Instant%20User%20Guide%20-%20volumes/Mesh_Instant_Access_Poin.htm

Questions:

1. Do I need to use external controller/additional license to run mesh portal and point? or the current IAP OS can handle. 

2. Between offices with point-to-point, around 300meters, line of sight with IAP 270 series, any suggestion for choosing antenna?

 

Thanks.

1.  No licenses.  The IAPs do not require them.

 

2.   Please see the ordering guide here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/assets/og/OG_AP-270Series.pdf  The 5314 is a candidate on the face of it because it is a high gain sector.

 

You should engage an experienced consultant to find out what is the correct antenna and to understand if your physical setup is a candidate for mesh at that distance.  More information can be found in the VRD here:. http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Validated-Reference-Design/Outdoor-MIMO-Wireless-Networks/ta-p/155624
