AP-175 for Client connectivity

We want to install an AP-175 for outdoor use for client connectivity only, no mesh network configured on this AP-175. So to get the full functionality of a/b/g/n, I would need to install 4 antennas, 2 for Radio 0 and 2 for Radio 1. Is that the common deployment scenario?

Hi Bob - you will need only two antennas. One for 2.4Ghz (b/n) radio and another antenna for 5Ghz radio (a/n).

Re: AP-175 for Client connectivity

Mohammed, 

 

Thanks for the quick response.  If I could ask a couple follow up questions:

1) In a mesh configuration for the mesh point AP-175, I have the A radio, radio 0, for the mesh link, do I only need to connect 1 onmi-directional antenna for the b/g radio, radio 1, for clients connections ? I currenly connected both? 

2) For the mesh link we use ant-2x2-d805 antennas. Those antennas have 2 connectors, so I connected them both to the R0 connectors on the AP-175. Is that the correct way? Or could I have just connected one of the connectors? 

 

I didn't see much documentation on connecting the antennas to the AP-175, and what options are available.

Bob -

 

1. Aruba sells pair of Omni directional antennas. So you need to connect both antennas to R1. Which 2.4GHz antenna are you using?

 

2. Yes the D805 has two connectors. Please connect one connector to RO-1 and another to RO-2. You will need to connect both cables from D805 to the AP.

Re: AP-175 for Client connectivity

Mohammed,

 

1) We purchased ANT-2X2-2005 for the 2.4 ghz and ANT-2X2-5005 for the 5 ghz. 

 

Currently for the mesh mesh link, I have an ANT-2x2-D805, which both connections to both R0 connectors. For client connectivity, I have 2  ANT-2X2-2005, connected to the R1 connectors. Would tha be correct? 

 

Then to my previous question, for an outdoor AP with only client connectivity, should I connect 2 ANT-2X2-2005 to the R1 radio and 2  ANT-2X2-5005 ?

Yes thats right.

For AP with only client connectivity - Pelase connect the pair of  ANT2x2- 2005 to R1 and pair of ANT2X2-5005 to R0.

Re: AP-175 for Client connectivity

If you are using the AP-175 for just client coverage using the D-807 antenna, should you use two D-807s per AP deploymentD
