Re: Point to Point Latency

If i were in your shoes i would be attempting to narrow the channel width down to 20mhz (you are unlikely to find 40mhz in the 2Ghz band); limit your MCS rates to 0->13 and run nstreme is your protocol. If this all goes to plan you should easily get 60mbit one way with 0-1ms latency.

In our testing we found that when you've tuned NV2 for lowish latency (say 2-3ms TMDA period size) Nstream produces more or less the same results up until you are maxing out the link - then latency goes up as the link becomes congested. If we use larger TDMA period sizes, then NV2 wins the day for p...

You can do two things: Limit his number of connections entirely - but how much data is he pushing?

The clients will be Mikrotik CPE right? Dont limit the data rates at the tower, leave the tower unset, and set at the client side - do this by testing the various rates 12/18/24/36 and set each client with the rates that get the best throughput.

Try using a lower frequency, 5745, or even to test, set your country to germany and use 5500 (to test only)

If your link stays up you can be sure the problem is interference, if not, you know the problem lies elsewhere
