Antenna mounting question - AIR-ANT2506

I was told by a wifi tech that the "pipe bomb" antenna [air-ant2506] should be installed upside down when installing inside a building, ie warehouse.

When I go to the hardware installation page for the antenna, Cisco makes no statement regarding this....they clearly show the antenna with the metal end at the bottom, not top.

Ultimately does it really matter which end is up if you are mounting inside? Just as long as it's vertical correct?

You are right.... as long as they are verticle you should not have any issues. The reason why they might ask you to face it downward is due to code in some area's..... code sometimes states that there will not be any objects facing upward.... just in case someone falls. So it is more of a safety aspect.
