Mount the BT11 Access Point

This topic provides the various mounting options for the BT11. You can mount the access point (AP) on a wall, ceiling or junction box. The AP ships with a universal mounting bracket that you can use for all mounting options. To mount the AP on a ceiling, you'll need to order an additional adapter based on the type of ceiling.

Note:

We recommend that you claim your AP before you mount it. The claim code is located on the rear of the AP and it may be difficult to access the claim code after you mount the AP. For information about claiming an AP, see Claim a Juniper Access Point.

See Access Point Placement for Location Services for guidelines on AP placement for location services.

Universal Mounting Bracket (APBR-U) for Juniper Access Points

You use the universal mounting bracket APBR-U for all types of mounting options—for example, on a wall, a ceiling, or a junction box. Figure 1 shows the APBR-U. You'll need to use the numbered holes to insert screws when mounting the AP on a junction box. The numbered holes that you use vary based on the type of junction box.

Figure 1: Universal Mounting Bracket (APBR-U) for Juniper Access Points Universal Mounting Bracket (APBR-U) for Juniper Access Points

If you're mounting the AP on a wall, use screws with the following specifications:

  • Diameter of the screw head: ¼ in. (6.3 mm)

  • Length: At least 2 in. (50.8 mm)

The following table lists the bracket holes that you need to use for specific mounting options.
