The HP J9659A is an indoor ceiling grid-mounted omnidirectional
array especially designed for use with dual-radio 802.11n access
points. Six independent vertically polarized radiators provide null-free
omnidirectional coverage for meeting rooms, offices, departmental
areas, or other enclosed spaces.
For best results, mount the HP J9659A at ceiling level near the center
of the coverage area. A line-of-sight path between the antenna and
active floor locations works best. Avoid mounting next to a column or
vertical support that could create a shadow zone and reduce coverage
to a portion of the room.
