external antennas for wireless bridge

Userlevel 2

I need to make a wireless bridge between two buildings (150 meters), no cables.

I have seen that with two simple AP7522 I could do it (I understand that using meshconnex configuration).

Which antenna should I use for outdoor in this case?

Thanks in advance.

Here is some considerations:
1. MIMO is not working outdoor so you could expect 150Mbps rate maximum
2. Check "show wireless regulatory device-type ap7522 " for DFS and maximum allowed power including antenna gain.

I could recommend two patch/narrow pattern antennas and 1xALL antenna mode. I.e. AP will use always one (primary) antenna to send signal and both antennas for listening. Use this for link budget calculations.
