Mounting of APs

Recommended Posts

Question: When outdoor access points are mounted on the same pole, how far apart should one AP be on top of the other?

Answer: Neighboring APs mounted on the same pole (e.g. directional access points pointed in different directions) should have a minimum separation distance of at least 1 m / 3 feet, as well as being set to independent channels.  Directional antennas have some level of gain in the unintended directions (referred to as back lobes and side lobes), and thus can still create interference with each other if they are mounted too closely together.

How about the outdoor APs that has an Omni Directional type of antenna? Do we mount them the same way?
