real world throughput on SXT

Mon Sep 15, 2014 5:54 am

anyone got some real world numbers/example of a dual chain NetMetal 5 w/ mANT30 (or RocketDish 2')

I'm interested in basically any channel widths. I'm looking for a radio replacement for a 20km link between two rocketM5 w/ RD30.

Right now I'm up against a RocketM5's 100Mbps port as my primary limit. I'm syncing worst case at MCS13 on the rocket (moderate rain), but typically I'm sitting at MCS15 with room to spare. I think I might be able to pull 256QAM on a perfect day! That said, I'd be pretty happy getting 150x20Mbps across this link short term and could move to 3' dishes to go 256QAM and 80Mhz channel in the future.

The question is, how does a NetMetal 5 work in 'ac mode? how comparable is it to a RocketAC-lite for example?

You can check my topic here :

Also I think there are a few more topics with real life results with Netbox / Netmetal

I can not get 256QAM on my link. I think there is still some work to be done on rate selection and nv2/nstreme stability.
