My church campus has 3 buildings (Church, gym, parsonage) that need to have WAPs in each building. What airMAX products would be the easiest to wirelessly link each building on the outside so that the network can be routed inside? The distance of each building is no more than 100 ft away from each other. Is there an outdoor airMAX product that can send the signal to multiple outdoor receivers? Thanks for your help!

Here is the overhead view of the church campus, with the church on the left of the picture, and the other two buildings that would receive the internet transmission from an airMAX product. The red line is approx 160 feet in distance; the yellow line is approx 280 feet in distance. Which airMAX transmitter and receivers would be the best option? Thanks!

Ok, so suppose Shane wanted to place the Loco transmitter inside his initial building. Is this doable or does it have to be placed outside?
I have almost the exact set up for building placement, but someone suggested placing the transmitter inside the window, pointing across the parking lot to the receivers also inside windows. As in the picture Shane posted, it's direct LoS.
I'm the Chicago area, so we get harsh, cold winters with snow and ice, and hot humid summers.

Here's another question for networking the church campus: what about using airGateways (once I link the buildings using Nanostation 5AC Locos) to broadcast the wifi inside the buildings?

I suggest the airCube for wifi inside.

I would need the ACB-AC to line-up with the Nanostation 5AC loco? If I understand the unit's advantages over a AP-AC-Lite correctly, I can power both the ACB-AC and the NS 5AC-Loco using the same, included power supply? (So no separate power supply needed for the NS 5AC-loco?) Plus, the ACB-AC has 4 GB ports (so no separate portswitch needed!). And, the ACB-AC has better range than the AP-AC-Lite?

I understand that the airCubes are not meant to be mounted outside. Once I install the Nanostations to link the 3 buildings together, my original thought was to use a UAP-AC-Lite to broadcast Wifi INSIDE the building. Usually, I have to add a portswitch for hard-wired connectivity. Since your airCube product has the portswitch built-in, and powers the Nanostations outside, I can eliminate the separate power supply necessary for the Nanostations and eliminate a separate portswitch.
