outdoor cisco access points

I want to order 4 outdoors access points from cisco to connect point to multipoint sites. Should I order Roof Mount kit or Wall mount kit? And what's the difference between both kits. Should I order power injector too?

you dont mention the model.

the models we use 1400, come with a indoor and outdoor unit with a integrated antenna, the indoor unit is where the power plugs in, and provides the ethernet and terminal connection point.    The indoor and outdoor is linked by a twin co-axial cable that can be ordered up to a length of 100meters.

As to the bracket, the wall mount is built for bolting against a wall, with a adjustable arm that the radio mounts on.

the model is AP1310

The roof mount kit (for indoor or outdoor use).
The radio consists of 2 parts similar to 1400, outdoor radio with or without integrated antenna, and then the indoor unit.

the roof mount kit comes with two dual-coax cables [20 ft (6.1 m) and 50 ft (15.2 m)] that can be used to connect the indoor and outdoor part.

If this is to short then a longer dual-coax cable must be orderd,  power is provided to the indoor unit (Quite small) and this will feed the power to the outdoor unit through the dual-coax cable.
