As usual I seem to inherit all kinds of networks.
We have a number of external AP's which if you look on the installation notes should be earthed, the poles should be earthed and basically the external copper link cable should have some sort of surge/lightening protection.
Reading the installation notes this earth is a must .. so the next question is :
Functional ( local earth spike )( document implies earth spikes )
Electrical ( connected to some sort of building earth )
Basically this installation has none .. so from an AP operational view , they work , from a lightening strike and safety point of view , they are at risk and also with external copper link cables , the switches and possibly the buildings mains are at risk.
So my question to the forum , is for those that have installed external AP's what did you do ? (With no prejudice to yourself or the company)
