    Hello everyone
    Regarding the correct installation method of the directional antenna, the connection of the feeder, and the influence of the panel orientation on the signal, where should the feeder side face when using the ceiling-mounted deployment method? The AP uses 534, and the directional antenna uses AP-ANT-45 and AP-ANT-48. The height of the directional antenna from the ground is 2.614m, and the deployment method is as follows. Now the test data shows that the signal on the feeder side is weaker than the opposite side.

    According to the ordering guide here: only the ap-ant-40 is designed to be ceiling mounted so close to clients.  In my opinion, the ap-ant-45 and the ap-ant-48 should be mounted much further away from clients.  You will get a decent amount of distortion by doing client testing so close to the ap-ant-45 and ap-ant-48.  Try to mount the ap-ant-45 and ap-ant-48 on the wall and put the client much further away and see what performance you get.
