Sorry for this noob question. I am a bit confused about the radiation pattern of APX access points. I came across some debate about "wall mount vs ceiling mount" so I search the Sophos APX documentation for the radiation pattern of the APX access points and I found some diagrams for "Horizontal" and "Elevation" radiation patterns. But I am not sure which side of the APX Access Point is the "Horizontal" and which side is the "Elevation". I've included the image of the radiation pattern with possible device orientation below. I edited the image and inserted the Sophos APX device images of two different orientation. Can someone verify if it's correct?
Thank you for contacting the Sophos Community!
In the first image, the AP is kept Horizontal, so the AP would be mounted on the ceiling. The white casing facing the ground, that is when you…
In the first image, the AP is kept Horizontal, so the AP would be mounted on the ceiling. The white casing facing the ground, that is when you see the Horizontal radiation pattern.
The second set of images is for wall mounted APs, 90 degrees to the ground.
Thank you for the reply. That means those radiation patterns are all "top to ground" view, am I right? And does that mean that Sophos APX Access Point are more efficient when installed on the ceiling?
