Ceiling vs Wall mount for 7982?

New Contributor II
Ceiling vs Wall mount for 7982? What is the optimal position and where can we see full radiation pattern map for its antenna array? Since overhead mount in the centre of the space to be covered is seldom an option for my case, just how much do I lose with a wall mount and what to look for in such deployment scenarios?
For example Cisco explicitly states not to use integrated antenna models as wall mounts, but to use ext. antennas positioned flat up and down the wall. I see no warning in Ruckus manual but I guess you can't have optimal beam in both of these cases?

Yes, the tbar clips fit better on the bracket than on my actual tbar.

An alternative to attach ZF7982's to recessed ceiling grids:

I am presently experimenting with a piece of drop ceiling grid and a specialized grid attachment hook. All from home depot for a install price of about $1.30 per drop ceiling mounted ZF7982 (AP).

1. Purchase extra drop ceiling "T" at any length. Longer pieces reduce cost per section.
2. Cut the spare "T" grid to about 6 1/2 inches. (tin snips are helpful)
3. Drill two 1/8 inch holes in vertical side of ceiling grid.
4. Slip 6 1/2 inch cut ceiling grid into AP slots.
5. Attach grid hook and mount to ceiling grid.

Perfect? No. Cheap? Yes

Hi, i have a LGPA77U Led projector which i placed in the ceiling about 8' 11'' h  and 9' 9'' away from the screen (100'' diag), i noticed that when I’m trying to adjust the focus to stabilize the image, half of the screen down or up looks blurring, and i just remember that when i placed it before on top of a shelf in the back wall (projecting directly to the center of the screen) (10' 6'' away from the screen) i didn’t had that problem, the image quality was great!  My question is: is this can be true? I will always have better image quality projecting from the wall vs the ceiling directly to the screen?
