The antenna will determine the range and direction. What is the application?

I am providing coverage for an airfield and the customer wants a dedictaed AM. My design has 3 portals and 3 mesh points with 5Ghz backhaul and 2.4 Ghz client. I am trying to determine if I will need an additional AM at each mesh point in order to cover the entire airfield or if I can strategically place a couple and meet the requirement.

Hey DZ, Jerrod here...
The coverage range of an AM is functionally farther than what an AP serving clients can do. Strategix placement is usually good enough. I think 2x the range (say out to 1km radius) for AM coverage versus ~400m for a laptop).
Reach out via email and we can discuss...
