Maximum Cabling distance between AIRONET 2500 SERIES and AP

Which will be the maximum cabling distance between antenna AIR-ANT2544V4M-R and Access Point Model AIR-CAP2602E-N-K9??

I'm trying to connect these equipment to the IDF which is 180m far from the AP/Antenna location. My plan would be to connect the AP at 90m from the IDF and the antenna at 90m from the AP but I want to be sure that the antenna will work. I will use AMphenol TWB4001 coaxial cable for cabling between Antenna and AP.

Re: Maximum Cabling distance between AIRONET 2500 SERIES and AP

according to the Amphenol attenuation tables:

there be a 22.31 dB/100m at 2500 (802.11b/g) loss.  I would imagine twice that at 5g.

the max output of the 2602 is 23dBm (less that 1watt)

this project would result in a very small/slow coverage area.

 

a better idea would be to use an industrial switch at the 90m point and good cat6a cable and put the 2602e into a NEMA box.

The longer the cable the higher the loss.
90 metre coax cable will definitely not work.
