Mixing APs 900 Mhz and 2.4 Mhz

Is it possible to have a 900 Mhz and a 2.4 Ghz AP in the same cluster?

Yes, no problem, you can also add 5.2 and 5.8 GHz.

No problem at all. I have seem customers installing multiple bands of clusters on towers that service heavily populated areas.

For example they would backhaul with 5.7 GHz and then have AP clusters of 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, or 5.2 GHz.

Just for clarity sake;

Could you actually have the different frequency radios “in the same cluster,” or would they have to be seperated some distance on the tower?

I have tried to put a 5.7 SM near a 2.4GHz omni (non Canopy, mind you) and had obvious RF issues, in spite of the fact the frequencies were as described. Perhaps the problem was not having a CMM to cordinate timing in that scenario . . .

Again, just thought I’d ask for clarity sake, in case dvolmut is somewhere banging his head against a tower . . .

I’ve co-located 5.2GH Mikrotik with a 5.7 AP and it did not work too well…

we colocate on 900MHz Cellular towers, and we are generally ok…

general advice is create as much vertical seperation as possible… (min 3ft on cellular)

No problems here with 900, 2.4, and 5.7 on the same towers.

Without CMM timing that may have been the issue

2.5, 5.2, 5.7 Canopy kit works fine colocated without being centrally timed…

we have a 5.7 cluster (full CMM) we put a 2.4 BH generate its own timing, no issues
