I have an application where I need an Outdoor Access Point (30m by 30m open space, AP can only be mounted at the far end of the property, clear LoS).
I'm wondering whether I will get good enough performance on 5 GHz when using the wAP ac.
From the spec sheet, I see its omni antennas only have 2 dBi gain.
I don't know if the (mostly low-end) 5 GHz devices will have sufficient power to reach such a (relatively weak) antenna from 30m...
I want to keep transmit power from the AP low enough, to avoid penetration in the neighbouring buildings.
> Would it make sense to make the small jump to the wAP R ac, as this one seems to have (only slightly stronger) 2,5 dBi antennas? (I don't need the LTE)
It also sports more recent & more powerful chips, don't know if that is of much importance?
> Any other alternatives?
The Omnitik 5 ac would be an uber-AP, due to its 7,5 dBI antennas, but I'd really like some 2.4 GHz support in the AP for some occasional, really old devices...
An indoor unit with a single outdoor antenna would also be possible, but I can't seem to find such an offering in the MT catalogue.
Thansk for your input.
