Does IAP-274 need antennas to broadcast SSID?


sorry for silly question but we have at customer's side outdoor AP 274. I'm looking at Data Sheet of 270 series and every AP of the series has integrated antenna except for AP 274.

Am I correct that it's cause of not broadcasting SSIDs while the device is UP and connected to a controller with no error flags?

I'm young so I don't wanna ask our sales department to order something (in my case antennas) which wouldn't be needed to make it work.

I just wanna make myself sure. It's better to ask if you simply don't know.

The 274 would require you to enter a gain number for the antennas before broadcasting.
