Colocation with 5G

    Dear all,

    I'm looking for recommendations if Aruba outdoor APs (e.g., 560 or 570 series) can be co-located with 5G transmitters (3.7-3.8GHz) closeby (e.g., at the same lightpole)?
    I know that WiFi and 5G will use different frequency bands but I am concerned if out-of-band interference may cause issues if the antennas of both systems are really close by.

    What is the RF input filter characteristic for the APs or what is the maximum interfering out-of-band power they can tolerate without loss of sensitivity?

    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards,
