1600/ 2600 with single external antenna

I have an unusual request to support an access point with a single external antenna to cover a small physical area (elevator car!!). All Cisco's currently shipping APs have dual band antennas using MIMO for throughput in "normal" deployments. Will a deployment with a single antenna work?

You would have to disable the non used antenna ports and only enable one port. Your better off using a 1602i or a 2602i.

What about using an access point with an internal antenna?

like the AIR-CAP1602I-x-K9 /  AIR-CAP2602I-x-K9

or do you already have the access point with a external. Otherwise what about something like

Dual-Band Omnidirectional

AIR-ANT2544V4M-R=

AIR-ANT2524V4C-R=.
