Directional Outdoor AP-367

Hello Friends,

 

Do you know how we should position/install the AP-367 directional Access Point ? it's shape is similar to the Omni one; so where is the main Lobe situated? should we Wall-Mount it, looking to the side or looking to the ground?

 

Thanks

For the AP-367 if you are wall mounting, it would mount facing out (bottom of the plastic radome facing in the direction you want coverage).

Thank you Jerrod,

 

Do you have a deployment picture of 367 you can share with me?

 

Thanks

If you mount the AP367 horizontally will it be just as good as the picture of it vertically, what is the best way to mount it horizontally?

Thank you.

Thank you.


If mounted horizontally, the signal will be directly below the AP, rather than to the side as when it's mounted vertically. Where do you need the signal to go?

Re: Directional Outdoor AP-367

I am mounting it on the flat roof of my building (about 60 ft up) and would like to project it onto the front of my building. I see on the spec sheet that you have listed the AP-270-MNT-V1 bracket for this unit, which extends out but the AP unit is mounted horizontally vs vertically. Which bracket is better in this situation?

Re: Directional Outdoor AP-367

From the pictures in this thead (particularly AP-36x-MNT-H2-1), the signal is directed from the side with the Aruba logo printed on it. So if you intend to hang the 367 over the side of the building horizontally (ie facing down), and the users you are getting coverage to are below the AP, then you should be fine.

 

The MNT-H1 is another option that provides an articulated joint so you can dial in an angle between horizontal and vertical, if your coverage need is not directly below your mounting location.
