I've been tasked with figuring out a solution to get wireless signal to a few light poles for surveillance cameras.
I've got distances figured out: 320' and 1175' for the two poles with line-of-sight. I plan on bridging the connection to antennas at these poles for the other spots which are both roughly 500' away from the line-of-sight poles.
I'm a bit worried about choosing an antenna for 1175' with a reasonable data rate for good quality video from the cameras. I've found a "2.4GHz Square GRID Parabolic Antenna 15 dBi " I assume that a pair, aimed at each other, would provide decent data rates? They say the distance is .75 miles, where the 1175' is .225 miles.
I'll power it from a "Meru OAP180 Rugged Access Point" and a 4' cable.
Is this a good choice? Are there other considerations?
