1. CAT6+
2. Carrier Aggregation- Band 3, 20 and more
3. 3G or 2G - Both. For devices with GPS, this is a must.
4. Region - Kenya, Eastern Africa.
5. Which LTE carrier providers? Safaricom, MTN, Vodafone, KTRN.
6. Support dude remote monitoring just like RMS for Teltonika. Monitoring 100s of units is a tough job.
7. Support simultaneous WiFi AP and client in known hotspots. When vehicles are stationery at the depot, it makes no sense using expensive LTE yet the LTE kits could automatically switch from LTE to WLAN client mode. If a config for this exists, kindly share.

We would like to know our customer wishes and use cases on what kind of future LTE technology would be interested in?
1. Which LTE Category you are interested in most - CAT6, CAT7, CAT9, CAT11, CAT12, CAT16 or some other?
2. Which LTE bands and which Carrier Aggregation combinations should be supported?
3. Should it also support Legacy technology like 3G or 2G?
4. Which World/Region/Country would you use it?
5. Which LTE carrier provider you are interested connecting and is there speed/monthly cap for the subscription plans?
This may be late for this post but for most ISP or WISP on this forum without the luxury of a license fee for LTE band or network, the most reasonable LTE device is to get some sort of NLOS advantage with the LTE-U devices (eNBs or APs if you like) with ODU CPEs in B46 5ghz LTE unlicensed frequency.
Meanwhile, support for TDD LTE (band 42) is desperately needed from Mikrotik, not available yet as at today I think.

Hi, i will bet interessed to try B42/43 CAT 12 - 16 with carrier aggregation. You have any compatible board? I just found the newest B42 CAT4 without CA.

Can we please have manual band control/locking for the US modem? I have dozens of SXTs deployed, and they are jumping into Band 12 from Band 2, and Band 12 is over-provisioned and near useless in my area. I need the ability to force Band 2 or 4, and the modem doesn't even support any of the same AT commands that are listed in the wiki. Support tells me that the wiki is for the international modem only. When support doesn't ignore me.

Can you please add this feature? It would make me not have to move to another hardware solution. I just can't have a device do 90Mbps down one day, and 10Mbps down the next, and generally bounce around based on weather and leaves.

Also, GL.iNet is offering a Carrier Aggregation/CAT 6 modem in their latest LTE router at the price point of $134USD. If they can source the Quectel EP06As that cheap, so can Mikrotik.

Well, I don't know if Mikrotik still read this thread, but let's see.

1. At least cat 6 (300Mbps), it's the minimum in 2018.
Cat 7 would also be nice, il would support 150mbps upload, only the Netgear M1 and Huawei E5788 support that upload speed currently. I'm using a LTE connection on a distance site for video-surveillance, I would really appreciate better upload performance.
Currently you are stuck with old Cat4 modems (150Mbps dl) on your products, your are out of the game, you are losing a big part of your potential customers.

2. 800, 900, 1800, 2100, 2600MHz
CA, well all variants.

3. Not necessary, but it should have the ability to receive and send SMS (I think it only works over 3G or 2G)

4. EUROPE/Portugal

5. NOS/Vodafone. No limit/30GB. 300/300Mbps


I would suggest to use a Qualcomm X16 modem (the X24 may be too expensive).
It support LTE 1Gbps in 4x4 MIMO mode, but in 2x2 mode it still support 600Mbps. It's available on M.2 module (It connects over USB 3 or PCIe)
https://www.sierrawireless.com/products ... ts/em7565/
Image Image


Now, I have other suggestions that would allow you to differentiate from your competitors
(some features are already implemented on some of your products):
  • Dual SIM
  • POE
  • External antennas (SMA connectors, not TS-9)
  • Maybe you should use a SFP connector on your current LTE Dish antenna/modem, but I don't know if there are modules available that are rated for low/high temperature environment. I prefer an optical isolation (fiber) to protect the rest of the network equipment from potential lightning surges/strikes.
    You still need a 12/24V PSU, but it won't be connected directly to the rest of the network equipment and is therefore easier to protect.
    I will NEVER connect the LAN cable of the LTE dish antenna on the roof, directly on an expensive router. And it wouldn't surprise me if your routers aren't equipped with surge and transient protections (GDT, MOVs and TVS diodes) needed to have a chance to avoid damages to the electronic.
    Currently my external antenna is connected to a media converter (TP-Link MC220L) RJ45<->SFP. Integrating the SFP port on the dish antenna would be a good idea I think. Most of the routers have a SFP port that can be used as WAN port.
    It's not unusual to make use of fiber for dish antennas. There ara already some LNBs (TV DVB-S), that uses fiber optics:
    https://www.rantex.com/615-thickbox_def ... supply.jpg
  • Bridge mode
  • Manual selection of the LTE bands (not like the Netgear modem where the user hasn't any possibility to force the modem to use one particular band)

PS:
By the way, your LHG 4G kit is a great product, It only needs a brother which support at least 300Mbps. 150Mbps is a no-go in 2018, sorry.

I'm pretty sure some vendors, specialized in antenna design and production, have something for you and that specialized producer of software/electronics doesn't have to enter that market. Even those not welcome in some "civilized" parts of the globe ...

Before you whine about price: good antennae don't grow on palm trees and come with a price tag. If they're worth it for you or not, it's up to you to decide.

I note that from the feedback here that there is very little call for LTE Bands 38 and 39.

It would be really helpful to understand the decision process that led to these bands being selected for the launch of the new InterCell Base Station products.

Impossible to get any product of any of these vendors in my country (commercially).

MikroTik has already have LHG. So hard is remove the radio and create antenna only with SMA connectors?

Hi,
A basestation working on the LTE-U Band 46 covers 5150 – 5925MHz is something that, small operators/ WISP s are able to buy and can generate a lot of sale for mikrotik and a lot of benefits for small WISPs.

Multiple LTE cards is the way to go IMO

It would be nice to have an AT&T/TMobile version that supports 2,4,5,12,17, 66, 71

These two vendors (especially TMobile) are extrememly popular in the US for the types of services mikrotik fits. I'm using wAP LTE-US with TMobile now and it's great having 2,4,5, and 12, but I'm sorely missing 66 and 71. 71 is their favorite for new towers in rural areas and I'm giving up connectivity and speed not having that. Only peplink is offering a device with those channels right now.

Yeah, a modem with B28 would be great. Here in Brazil, 4 of 5 major carriers offer LTE over B28, they are TIM, Vivo, Claro and Algar.
Also, most of times you get B7 than B3.

In the UK both Three and Vodafone are rolling out L band which is band 32, its a Download only configuration so carrier aggregation is also required to be able to use it. Three will be using it at 20Mhz bandwidth, they currently use band 3 at 15 Mhz and band 20 at 5 Mhz so if a mast in enabled it will double the download speed if the 3 bands can be aggregated.

So Band 32 & carrier aggregation.

5. Which LTE carrier provider you are interested connecting and is there speed/monthly cap for the subscription plans?
Cat6, B28, 3G <= 2 years, Australia, Telstra&Optus.
Why?
LTE hardware is expensive enough, Cat6 would be the sweet spot for the next couple of years.
Australia is the sixth largest Country by land mass but only 0.33% of the worlds population so its about distance and B28 700mhz does it best!
2G has already been switched off here and 3G services are said to go as soon as next year.

Re: Future of LTE products, user feedback requested

Hi everyone

I'm looking for an LTE modem that will be compatible with Mikrotik routerboards (RBM11G).
I need 3CA LTE-A suppot including L-Band (Band 32) and all the usual bands in the UK (B1,B3, B7, B20)

I am looking at the Telit LM960 and would like to know if others have used this modem in the RBM11G. The Mikrotik (RBM11G) only has USB 2.0 so this will limit performance but I do not expect the 4G networks to be delivering beyond much 100Mbps so this should not be an issue. What is the maximum throughput this routerboard could handle?

Are there any other alternative LTE-A modems that are supported by Mikrotik?

Why doesn't Mikrotik release a better LTE-A modems?

Thanks,
Tim
