Motorola Canopy Solution. What Access points are good to use.
Posted on 2006-06-12
Hello Experts, I really need advice rather than a solid answer so I will split points on this question for those that help the most. Here is my situation;
I am currently setting up a Motorola Canopy system, very simple system. My Backbone is Cable internet. On top of the main building I am going to have an Omni Directional antennawith a GPS unit that will be for my timing issues with my backhaul unit. There will be 12 Subscriber modules. These are the modules that will bring in the 5.9GHZ signal for the motorola Equipment. Off of these Subscriber modules I will need wireless access points inside the buildings. These buildings are built like bunkers, alot of concrete walls and fairly large. So in some buildings I will need multiple access points. What will be the best bang for my buck for a cheap access point. I do not need ciscos or any hi dollar solution for this project. The canopy solution is already setting me back about 20,000. What is everyones opinion on distance. My reasoning for not needing any hi dollar devices are because it is set so back out of the way that I am not really worried about security since the walls are like bunkers and it sets far off the road. I just want a reliable strong device. Also would anyone consider using an omni indoors? Please let me know. Thanks
