All environments need to be analyzed, but some general guidelines may help. Place outdoor APshigh up on your poles or mount points, dome facing down, for best coverage. You should get up to300 feet circular pattern around typical outdoor APs, ie T300, T310c. The T301s (sectorized) is builtto radiate RF in a focused range, rather than 360 degrees for perimeter considerations. If using acontroller, you can mesh your APs, but try to limit to just 1 or 2 hops maximum, for best client through-put. I hope this is helpful.
