Help choosing external N-antennas

Hello

I'm trying to choose the appropiate AP and external antennas for one of my best customer but I have doubts. Let me explain them and I wish you can help me.

I must choose between AP 1262 and 2600e and according to the document (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps7183/ps469/at_a_glance_c45-513837.pdf) there are antennas specifically for 1260 and others for 1600 and 2600 series. I have reviewd the datasheet of every antenna and all of them have RP-TNC connectors. So, the questions are:

- can I use a AIR-ANT2566P4W-R on a 1260 AP?

- can I use a AIR-ANT2451NV-R on a 2600 AP?

In other words, can I use all the antennas labeled (in this document) for 2600 on a 1260 and viceversa? Thank you very much

Dani

Yes you can. What I'm saying is dual band will work for a radio that is a single band or a radio that is dual band.

Well the issue is that the 1600, 2600 and 3600 uses dual band antennas. The 1260 doesn't, but you can.

So to clarify:). The antenna ports for the 1260 is dedicated to either 2.4ghz or 5ghz. The 1600, 2600 and 3600 has dual band support. Makes sense?
