Oh great listserv, I would like your assistance.  We are planning on moving from Cisco to Aruba.  I wondering if anyone is using outdoor MIMO antennas and articulating mounts that are not made by Aruba.  The mount that they have suggested is a little heavy and bulky so we'd like to try to identify something else.  For the Cisco antennas we were using a Cushcraft universal articulating mount but eventually started having to modify those to make them work. 

Suggestions, thoughts!

We've used Terrawave antennas, specifically these: http://www.terra-wave.com/shop/80211n-245-ghz-6-dbi-mimo-patch-antenna-w... The articulating mount feels a bit on the flimsy side though so I'm not sure I'd use it anywhere there would be significant wind loading. -- Nick Kartsioukas Cuesta College Computer Services 805-546-3248 ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
Hi Rick,

I remember receiving an information packet about Aruba mounts from Oberon Wireless:


We did not purchase any of the mounts; it might work for your setup.
