Can I effectively use an outdoor mesh AP inside a warehouse?

I'm trying to find what I need to provide WiFi throughout a large warehouse with multiple rooms divided by walls.  I have looked at some indoor wireless mesh system, where very few of the APs have to be run to the router with network cables--which is good.  Still, they have limited power and a max coverage of about 700 feet, meaning I will need to buy quite a few APs.

But then I see high-end equipment such as the Motorola 6562 outdoor wireless mesh system, which apparently has the power--or something else--to cover a much wider area.

Can I use something like the 6562 inside the warehouse, requiring fewer APs?

If the answer is "no", please help me understand why not.  And, I wonder if I placed a 6562 outdoors on the roof above of each large room in the warehouse, would I get good WiFi coverage in the warehouse below the AP--since it is apparently so powerful?  TIA

I wouldn't recommend it.  As well as the AP covering a large area, the clients need to be able to do the same in order to talk back to the AP.  If you can hear the AP but it can't hear you it won't work.
