The pat answer is yes. Just set the 5GHz radio to mesh in the device config. Are you planning on using this for backhaul or failover? For backhaul, you may want to use something other than AP121, and certainly something with directional antennas.

Of course yes, but pay attention on which channel you're trying to achieve it...DFS is a must with outdoor solution.

the customer is going to use this for backhaul. 
I'm going to advise to replace the AP 121.
Thanks for the DFS tip...
