I am trying to simulate the 1562D AP pattern on airmgnet survey tool, in the planner you can put the antenna property to get the desired antenna pattern, but I cant find any documentation having these properties.
or .ant & .bmp antenna files, to but in this directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\AirMagnet Inc\AirMagnet Surveyor\Antenna). if its work.
Not familiar with it personally, But I found this on a Cisco support page:
It comes with directional antenna:
AIR-ANT2413P2M-N= 13 dBi (2.4 GHz), Directional, dual polarized
AIR-ANT5114P2M-N= 14 dBi (5GHz), Directional, dual polarized
check the pattern of these two antenna on this link:
We need your Support please.
I'm not associated with any of these companies, and although I sometimes get the opportunity to do outside work, I prefer to have only one employer.
But to get back to your question, have you read the planner(s) support materials or taken any classes on their use ?
Are you using antennas with "down-tilt" ?
This is really a CWDP or CWAP question, rather than CWNA (where you put your question). Have you looked in either of those texts for help ?
I can tell you that businesses with forklifts can have several unexpected problems due to forklift speeds, and sometimes the signal-proof "cans" their operators use to hold the Wi-Fi devices.
Have you ever seen the videos of people "drifting" forklifts ? It makes for great sport at night when supervisors are harder to find.
You mention RRM, I suggest you look at some of Devin Akins articles or webinars on the subject ! By setting just a couple limits, you can control somewhat the "insanity" of RRM.

Unfortunately it appears that Devins presentation has been deleted. Couldn't find it at all.
Maybe it was too Politically Incorrect for the Cisco-centric world.
Hi...i am a new user here. I want to know are you using antennas with down-tilt ?Have you looked CWDP texts for help ?Have you ever seen the videos of people drifting forklifts ? It makes for great sport at night when supervisors are harder to find.
Search Google for "drifting forklifts".
Here is only one example - although I am personally more concerned with max speeds across the factory floor, as opposed to staying in one spot for the sake of the camera. BTW some forklifts have a sideways-crawl feature that looks a lot like drifting, but that is not what I was referring to.:
Roaming times are usually based on walking speeds. Add in a (relatively) high speed forklift, and your standard roaming parameters will probably not work so well. Don't be surprised by lost connections. Some client devices roaming parms can be changed - talk to the manufacturer, or their commercial distributor. Normal retail shops usually won't have a clue - They're not stupid, just uneducated as far as the devices real abilities..
There are both mechanical and electronic methods of engineering-in down tilt. See the following page for examples of both.
It's amazing what can be done on even an originally simple omni-directional dipole antenna.
I have always been impressed with Tessco, their products, and their service.
My older copy of the CWDP-250 manual has several pages covering where to use down-tilt. Mostly for warehouse, industrial building designs and outside in ports - any place with high mounted antennas.
I would assume the new version (302), also has something.
Best bet, talk to Tessco.
