MR86 Sector Antenna AIR-ANT2513P4M-N high density

Hello Team,

 

I need to cover a large amount of people in an area so i design by placing Sector antennas AIR-ANT2513P4M-N one near the other as these are very narrow as i read that high density is about 30 clients per AP.

 

Can i place on the same pole two MR86 with AIR-ANT2513P4M-N antenna facing with the opposite direction  in different channel or is bad idea and i will have interference?

 

If yes i should install the in different heights or back to back ?

 

Thank you

@nbenis I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t install these back to back on the same pole, obviously each antenna with its own MR86. The data sheet for the antenna is here, https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/antenna/installation/guide/ant2513p4mn.html and the radiation patterns show very little radiation behind the antenna, it is virtually all forward as you’d expect. And as they’ll be on separate channels there should be minimal interference.
