Re: LoRaWAN support

you're right, would be the best choice for out of the box solution! The cost would be 179$ for LTtap 4G kit + 89$ for R11e-LoRA, so 268$ . I was aiming at the most affordable solution which I think would be RBM33G 49$ + R11e-LoRa 89$ + R11e-4G 79$ + generic outdoor case ~12$ -> 229$, but of course w...

Re: LoRaWAN support

the LORA KIT is basically a regular wAP + Lora modem in the only slot. If you remove the Lora card, you will have a default wAP and you can use a 4G modem or anything else, because it's just a wAP. Thanks, this is what I though. So in order to build a Mikrotik LoRaWAN gateway with 4G WAN, I'd need ...

Re: LoRaWAN support

I'm also wondering: does the wAP LoRa8 kit includes both LoRa modem + a free pcie slot to put an LTE modem.

This would be usefull to deploy a standalone LoRaWAN gateway without any Wi-Fi or Ethernet uplink, but only 4G/LTE backbone.

Re: Hotspot HA and load sharing with VRRP

Hi, Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay. I use 2xRB1100 because based on my tests the hotspot part of routeros can only deliver 600-650Mbps on RB1000AHx4, not 2Gbps. Maybe I had an issue in my setup, but I've done a lot of bandwidth tests (iperf, Mikrotik BT tool, file transfers...), either...

Hotspot HA and load sharing with VRRP

Hi, I recently installed a residential wireless hotspot solution in a student residence with ~150 users allowed to connect with 5 device, so 750 maximum hotspot sessions. My config is based on 2x Mikrotik RB1100AHx4 for the routing/dhcp/hotspot part, and Unifi for the switching and wireless part (cf...

Re: Hotspot behind Gigabit WAN lines

Yes I'm not so worried about the backend side of the 802.1x solution, I already tested it successfully, adding users to the RADIUS would be more or less the same process than with hotspot. I'm more concern timing here, I've till the end of the week to test the new solution, write new procedures/user...

Re: Hotspot behind Gigabit WAN lines

Hi, thank for the quick reply! I thought about 802.1x but I there is two reasons I didn't go with it (yet): - I have some doubts about device compatibility: more and more users want to connect with game consoles, or connected devices/objects, and I'm not sure if most of them are 802.1x compliant (I ...

Hotspot behind Gigabit WAN lines

Hi, I work for a small ISP doing mainly hotspot access in residential buildings, students residences, etc. We use mainly Unifi for the wireless part and mikrotik RB1100XX for gateway/hotspot. Usually our sites have either slow WAN lines or few users, so it works smoothly, but this time there is 150 ...
