Re: 802.11ax [SOLVED]

Mimosa uses the Quantenna chipset which is a BEAST. That said, their deployment model doesn't seem to take advantage of all it's power, and they still don't have a firmware with proper MU-MIMO despite chipset support. If you are talking any apples to apples scenario though, Mimosa will beat mikroti...

Re: 802.11ax [SOLVED]

80Mhz is near impossible to pull off full performance outdoors in 5Ghz. You’d have to be in the wilderness 20 miles from any homes and well below the tree line. True, but one of the advantages of using 80Mhz channel over 40 or 20 even in a 'noisy' 802.11 environment is the ability of the 'ac' stand...

Band; "5Ghz-N/AC" versus "5Ghz-only-AC"

If AP works with 5Ghz-only-AC should CPE also work in "only-AC"? Or is "N/AC" good enough?

Does it trigger a different driver in CPE? Or does it make no difference at all?

(We keep "N/AC" so we can always roll back if needed. But if "ac only" would be better I will set that as permanent setting.)

Sadly in 802.11 is not stable and clients gets a lot of disconnections so I'm sticking with nstreme. The conclusion is Mikrotik have lost speed in any protocol, a lo...

Re: Wireless Wire free Multi-point upgrade for AP feature

I've been SUPER-AMPED about this, as we have come so close many times to pulling the trigger on IngiteNet 60Ghz PtMP. However, I just don't think these little MikroTik 60Ghz units are going to cut it! They're SO small, and the distance is no longer than what you can run with Cat5e. Finally some goo...

Re: Mikrotik and Environment.

Re: Mikrotik and Environment.

In omitting the power adapters the packages can become smaller and lighter. Less transport fees and again good for the environment (less weight to transport, less volume needed) and the price from the package can be reduced a little bit too!

Generally you can't get full modulation with signals stronger than a -38 in my experience. If it is requiring -20s to work in your area you might want to find another frequency or line of work. That is utterly horrible. The actual chipset is designed for like -40 to -97dB. You're usually running in...

I would argue that one must always test radio links with single tcp stream.

Say for example you get 70meg with 1 connection tcp traffic ...
