Desktop enclosure for RB953GS-5HnT-RP

I wander if anyone have seen something like that.
I'm looking to integrate 2 x LTE modems in one unit, aggregate them to increase throughput.
Obviously the case has to come with 4 extra SMA size for the LTE antennas otherwise I'll put the drill at work :)

if they both turn to be close to 100mbps and between RB1100AHx2 and RB450G is still 8... you have a wireless problem :(

there are too many config setups which you can use. they all have good and bad points you only need to find the one that suits you.

Use "access list" and limit your CPEs to connect to only few or one AP.

you jumped from 23 dBm(TX Power) + 18dBi (antenna gain) to 24dBm(TX Power) + 25dBi (antenna gain)
my advise is replace the SR5 with CM9 or R52 and your link will work just fine, probably better than before.
