It doesn't matter what kind of antennas and/or APs going to be used.  The most important thing with RTLS is whether or not a wireless site planning was made or not.  

RTLS require a minimum of three (3) APs to triangulate a wireless client or badge.  First AP, for example, needs to have a minimum RSSI of -68 dBm and second and third AP have -72 dBm RSSI.  If the APs are in the wrong position and/or isn't able to provide adequate coverage then RTLS will not work.

Depends on the RTLS requirement(s) and where the APs are located.
