how should a Ruckus T310c be mounted?

i haven't been able to locate any documentation which describes how to mount the T310c.

parallel to ground or perpendicular> and recommend height from ground might be helpful as well.

You can find the mounting instructions in the QSG (Quick Setup Guide) on the support portal here including how to attach on a flat surface, to a pole, how to earth grounding, etc.

i've seen that document. but it doesn't explain how that affects its radio's pattern.

You can check the radiation pattern here.  Or you can also see the Azimuth and Elevation Antenna Patterns of T310c in the datasheet here.  Those figures 2-5 applied to T310c as well.  It is omni directional antenna.

@Tony Heung
The Knowledge Base article with radiation patterns is a great resource, Thank you very much for sharing the link!
Will the article be augmented with 11ax/Wi-Fi 6 AP patterns? At the moment only R750 is there.

You are welcome.  I believe it will be updated by our tech pub team.

Hi Robert,

As stated in the QSG the standard mounting recommendation is for the T310c/d (omni) AP to be mounted horizontally 'dome down' (parallel to the ground). 

However; as BeamFlex+ has vertically and horizintally polarised antennas; it is also possible to install the AP vertically, IF this suits the deployment type, as it will not give equivalent coverage to a horizontal deployment.

There is no specified recommended height for installation, as this is dependent on the use-case in your deployment. The distance to the client devices you are connecting is the primary consideration factor.

HTH.

Regards,
Darrel.
