2 x 20MHz channels for PtP,
6 x 10MHz channels for PtMP, as you only want <=2mbps.
Plan your cells carefully and beware of ghost frequencies when using 5/10MHz.

Routed is best!
You may even tunnel the client into the core.
Use OSPF for failover/loadbalance on the PtP.

Re: route p2p link instead of wds-bridge

NO!
It's not a regular "bridge", its a tunnel.
It will bridge your IP net so you may use PPPoE, i.e. you will have two ethernet endpoints terminated into your PPPoE client and server.

Take a look at the diagrams in the manual for other tunnels, the networks are still ROUTED!

Create a tunnel (via FO) to SAT provider, this will be for upstream, OR get an IP from SAT provider and use it as your source (out interface) IP (so the only route back will be via SAT DVB).
