    Can I use Extreme Networks Antennas with WiNG AP´s?
    I want to connect Access points in freezer environment. One option is to put the AP outside the cold chamber and the Antenna inside.

    Years ago we use ML-2452-PTA3M3-036 with Motorola´s AP. There is a better antenna to use with AP-7632?

    Regards,

    Hi Pablo, it would be best to review our Extreme Antenna Suite / Guide for listing of compatible antennas and coverage patterns. The AP7632 with external antenna connectionrs has RP-SMA female antenna connectors where the referenced antenna ML-2452-PTA3M3-036 has an RP-SMA male antenna connector for direct fit to this AP.

    RP-SMA female is the same on AP-650?

    That is correct. RP-SMA female antenna connectors on AP-650

    Here is a picture of the RP-SMA female connector on the right and RP-SMA male connector on the left.

    Ron,
    So the documentation has errors?
    Check this:

    In the doc, the RP-SMA Male is this one:

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will work with correct resources to get this information corrected. In the meantime - here is a good connector compilation which shows the correct antenna descriptions and gender:

    OK, going back to the initial question, is the ML-2452-PTA3M3-036 the best option for the AP-7632?
    I Will put it on the ceiling.

    The connector in the middle is for BLE and you can use the usual antenna
