So, I know that the ideal position for the ZF indoor AP's is a ceiling mount with the dome pointing down.
However, I was reading the indoor mounting advice in the Best Practices guide (http://a030f85c1e25003d7609-b98377aee968aad08453374eb1df3398.r40.cf2.rackcdn.com/wp/wp-wireless-best...
) and the statements about the alternative mounting positions seem contradictory.
The ZoneFlex AP can also be placed horizontal, i.e., flat-side
down, on top of the highest office cubicles .... Wall mounting the AP vertically, i.e., with the dome pointed
sideways, should only be done on the “outside” walls as this
orientation creates a shadow behind the flat-side of the AP
The two statements here seem to contradict each other. If mounting on a wall produces a shadow on the back side of the AP, then wouldn't putting it flat-side-down on top of something tall also mean everything underneath it is in the shadow? Or is it saying that the wall itself is the object causing the attenuation under the AP?
I've got a room with impractically tall ceilings and am contemplating between putting an AP on a waist-high table, on a 10ft tall bookshelf, mounted against the wall with dome pointing sideways.
