AP8163
« on: April 23, 2015, 01:19:50 AM »
Hi,

I would like to ask if AP8163 can use dual-band antennas?  To which port on the AP8163 will I connect it when I use dual-band antennas?

Thanks,
Redski

The recommended antenna to use is ML-2452-HPAG5A8-01 which is dual-band.
Really you could use any antenna with an N-connector.

Connect the antennas to all of the ports for the radios you are using i.e. if you are using R1 and R2 you will need 6x ML-2452-HPAG5A8-01, but if you are also using R3 then you will need 8 x ML-2452-HPAG5A8-01.

The casing beside each connector is labelled with the radio number.

Hi McNulty,

Thank you for your reply.   How is the MIMO of dual-band antennas being calculated?  6 x dual-band antennas gives 3x3 MIMO?   

Thanks,
Redski
