1562E Mounting position & depth, lightning arrestor cable type and location, recommended CAT6 STP outdoor rated Cable & grounding at switch
Hoping someone can help?
We just purchased quite a few 1562E WAPs. We will be responsible for mounting and connecting them for outdoor and indoor use. Questions are:
Outdoor-using AIR-ANT2568VG-N antennas (dual band) we must use antenna ports 1&2. Is it acceptable to mount the WAP upside down so the antennas & Ethernet cable point downward? Does this affect the signal (loss, pattern) negatively? Or does best practice dictate mounting antenna upward.
We are planning to mount the WAPs 30 to 36 inches out from the outside of our all-metal building. Is that necessary? What distance from an all-metal building is best practice? What about indoors?
Does Cisco offer a mounting bracket that we can purchase to mount these?
Using AIR-ACC245LA-N lightning arrestors, must a low loss coax cable be used, or can we use grounding copper wire? Can we affix the non WAP side of the lightning arrestor cable to either the mount or the metal building, or must we attach said cable to its own dedicated lightning rod in the ground? These WAPs will be mounted 12 to 15 feet up.
Can anyone recommend which CAT6 STP outdoor rated heavy duty cable to purchase?
When the switch side of the CAT6 run is terminated at the patch panel in the switch area, can someone recommend a best practice grounding method?
There is both COAX-SEAL and electrical joint compound included with the WAPs. Can anyone explain exactly which product should be used for what part of this install? We are using only the Ethernet port (PoE) to connect the WAPs. Is the compound used when tightening the nipple that the Ethernet cable goes through?
Most importantly, if anyone can send me a link to a video(s) that shows the RIGHT way to mount and terminate these WAPs that would be exactly what we need. I found a great video for our new 2802i but nothing for the 1562E. Thank you!

On the Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series WLC, enabling/disabling the remote LAN (RLAN) ports on APs requires going into the configuration for each AP and manually enabling/disabling the ports. However, as the number of APs that need to have their RLAN...
It’s been a long road for our AireOS wireless controllers. In fact these products have been around Cisco in some form since 2005. As you may have heard, Cisco made the decision to End-of-Sale (EOS) these products last month.
That means that these AireOS ...
