How to connect feeder cables to APs
Feeder cables are used to connect APs to external antennas. Feeder cables need to be made onsite and should not be too long. Connectors of feeder cables should match those of APs/antennas. For details about how to make and connect feeder cables, see HUAWEI Access Points Antenna Quick Start. - Indoor APs generally use thin feeder cables. Such cables may cause severe signal attenuation. Therefore, it is recommended that the feeder cable length be no longer than 15 m. - Outdoor APs generally use thick feeder cables. Such cables have low signal loss but are hard. The bend radius is large (> 150 mm for RG-8U feeder cables; > 50 mm for 1/2" feeder cables; > 250 mm for 7/8" feeder cables).

Can antennas in an antenna group on APs that support MIMO technology be used independently
Yes. When using independently, antennas using the MIMO technology cannot achieve the optimal performance. Multi-antenna MIMO technology can increase AP throughput and provide diversity receiving capability, improving the receive SNR.

How does the AP bandwidth change if MIMO antennas are not used
802.11n APs support a maximum of 150 Mbit/s bandwidth if MIMO antennas are not used.

What is the AP bandwidth when an AP does not use the MIMO antenna
Theoretically, the 802.11n APs support at most 150 Mbps bandwidth when not using MIMO antennas.
