Last Modified: 2015-03-21

thank you for taking the time to read my question and assist me.

Here is the material that i have:
2 outdoor cisco Aironet AIR-CAP1532E-A-K9
2 antenna AIR-ANT2547V-N

Here is what we want to achieve:
Conect both in mesh network (we might add a third one at a later time)
Broadcast wifi over all the construction site

Here is my question:
What distance can each of these device reach in broadcasting WIFI good and reliable enough for someone to connect to ?
what is the maximum distance can they be from each other with direct line of sight ?

FOr those of you out there that already done it using these equipment please share your knowledge with me lol
This is a large construction site there is going to be some interference via other equipment and radio system and all.
So what would be the fair / safe distance it could reach ?

thank you for your time
