System Requirements System Requirements This antenna is designed for use with Cisco Aironet access points and bridges but can be used with any 5-GHz Cisco Aironet radio device that uses an RP-TNC connector. Safety Precautions Installation of this antenna near power lines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation Warning directions.
Each person should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
Generally, the higher an antenna is above the ground, the better it performs. Good practice is to install your antenna about 5 to 10 ft (1.5 to 3 m) above the roof line and away from all power lines and obstructions.
Use the antenna as a template to mark the locations of the four mounting holes. Step 2 Use a drill and a 3/16-in. (4.7 mm) drill bit to drill four holes at the locations you marked in Step 2. Step 3 Start a plastic anchor into each hole.
Mount the antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where the lead-in wire enters the building. Step 4 Drill a hole in the building’s wall as close as possible to the equipment to which you will connect the lead-in cable.
