The second difference is the number of devices on the frequencies. 2.4GHz suffers moreContinue reading “2.4GHz and 5GHz Wireless”

Cisco: Air Provisioning

I was recently asked to design¬†a point-2-point wireless solution which fast became a point-to-multipoint. ¬†Regardless of the design the Access Points used were¬†AIR-AP1532E-UXK9 with a vision of utilising the 5Ghz back-haul and a 14dBi¬†directional antenna to cover line-of-sight. These UX Access Points address the worldwide regulatory compliance by dynamically setting their¬†regulatory domain/country based on theirContinue reading “Cisco: Air Provisioning”
