RouterOS v7 and Chateau LTE12

Tue May 12, 2020 3:03 pm

Gurus,

Three technical questions regarding RouterOS v7 and Chateau LTE12.

1. Is it possible to decide/choose which external antenna will be for TX and which for RX? This is very useful feature for users with external antennas. It's possible for e.g. Teltonika RUT955 LTE router.
2. Is it possible to control the power of the antennas? For TX of course...
3. How does the LTE carrier aggregation configuration looks like? Is it enough to mark all required (two or three) band checkboxes via GUI?

Regards,

1. There are total 4 antenna connections for the CAT12 modem and for 2 antenna connections you can change from internal to external antenna - you can configure both antennas connectors separately (which will be external and which internal). For the TX only the main (first) antenna is used - which can be configured to external.

2. No the modem has the standard LTE output power.

3. The same like for the CAT6 modem - you just select which LTE bands modem can use and then it will automatically decide which CA to use.

@uldis - we in Poland now have that device with ROS 7beta6
Where is documentation to that function to change antenna ?
Why Block Diagram not have a sim slot and mPCIe for lte module or at list at left a bumble with LTE information?
What is a code name for LTE module e.g. R11e-lte12-ea ? Why you not use a SoC with -G Global to use it with America too ?
When you upgrade the https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Interface/LTE with information about Chateau ?

Thanks in advance.

SiB, that's because there is no miniPCI in there.

Two possibility options:
  • You enter into M.2 socket to start new era or Perfect MikroTik New Hiper Super LTE Category devices base at Quactel EG12/18 and EG20 and all in Global version.... and we start became innovative again...
  • You integrated SoC with PCB like in old SXT LTE 3-7 :( all because that device in first place was created to ISP market, not for customer market... :( <- I think this is a real case.

1. Chateau board PCB has a future built option for m.2 slot for LTE/5G so it is possible to introduce such configuration in future. To be more competitive it is more effective to use the specific module for each region rather than introduce global version which would be more expensive.
2. We are constantly working on new board designs so we will release new LTE/5G boards in future.
