Re: cAP-ac Throughput & High Ping Problems

I believe the reason you want to have different configurations per cAP is so that you can assign frequencies. This may not be the best move.
Create the four channels or more on CAPsMAN, then set channel reselect interval to 15 minutes. This way, cAPs shall select the best channel amongst the preset.

Re: cAP-ac Throughput & High Ping Problems

Reduce Tx power.
Install the cAPs in a zigzag format, not rows.
Possibly add more cAPs.

Re: CAP AC & RB1100AHx4 dude capabilities

Yes to everything. I would go for a RB4011 and have access list rule on the cAPs based on signal strength not weaker than -67. A pair RB750 for CAPsMAN would also be included for redundancy. Play well with frequencies to avoid interference in adjacent classrooms.

You can download and upload the latest release of RouterOS in the files section of your CHR then point cAPs via CAPsMAN to pickup the latest ROS from there and update. Could be MIPSBE or any other.

Re: Capsman question

Yes cAPs do support redundant setups. Simply configure a second CAPsMAN exactly as the primary then in your cAPs, add the IP or name of the redundant CAPsMAN under the primary. Any changes to primary CAPsMAN have to be manually duplicated in redundant CAPsMAN.

Re: Suggestions requested: general hotspot controller improvements in functionality

Just to emphasize on Failover and redundancy. Implement proper synchronization so that if master hotspot server goes offline, the redundant one doesn't cause users to login again.
Do this for Capsman too so that when performing changes on CapsMan, one doesn't have to configure two routers.

Your installation site matters. Check out the beam formation pattern of the devices and compare to your installation case. You risk having a weak signal on one side while it goes to waste on the other.

USB power is 5 volts. This is not enough to power LTE, WLAN, GPS and other internal functions concurrently. This is known and a thread about the same exists on this forum. GPS misbehaves without an external antennae. Of course you have to download the GPS package for it to work.
