Looking at a laundry list of antennas and their capabilities might overwhelm you. Now that the raw data has been presented, we show you a few examples of how these antennas can be used.
Because warehouses and manufacturing facilities are large installations, an omni-directional antenna, mounted at 25 feet up, provides good coverage. You want to place the antenna high enough so that it clears racks of equipment. However, you don't want to place it so high that you lose range. Remember that although omnidirectional antennas radiate in a 360-degree horizontal plane, they don't often exceed 75 degrees vertically.
Optimally, you can locate the antenna in the center of the facility. However, in cases where an antenna must be placed against a wall, a directional antenna is best.
It should come as no surprise that different sized offices will require different antennas:
Antennas for wireless bridging vary, and they depend on the type of bridging you employ:
You can even increase outdoor ranges if you use a parabolic dish antenna25 miles with 2.4-GHz systems and 12 miles with 5-GHz systems.
