Significant improvement for 60 GHz solutions

Wed Mar 21, 2018 3:49 pm

We have made a significant improvement for 60 GHz wireless (Wireless Wire and wAP 60G) configurations in the latest 6.42rc version release - increased supported distance for wAP 60G to 200+ meters.

Those of you who are willing to test rc versions on your test network, please upgrade to the latest version, test the performance and report to support@mikrotik.com with the results. Your effort and feedback will be highly appreciated.

Please note that rc versions are released strictly for testing purposes and should not be used on crucial network devices.

Could you guys be a bit more specific as to what we are looking for?

Do you mean you can maintain lower mcs rates at higher distance or are you saying we should get full gig at 200+ meters?

What exactly are we looking for here? Also, ptp or ptmp?

I join the question, what exactly are we looking for? Stability at distances +200m on wAPs or a better signal?

I have tried with my 20 - 30 m short link.

With 6.43rc49 I see it hitting MCS 10. With the previous versions the maximum it reached was MCS8.

In simple words, you can get ~900Mbits not only at 100 meters, but now even at 200 meters.

But we are curious souls who would like to Know some details! ;)

Now seriously, I have spammed support with some tests I have done in my link, which is a short one. Stability has gone down with rc49. With rc30 it was rock
solid, as it is with 6.41.3.

The changes I noticed are, higher TX power? (Assuming tx-sector is an indication of TX power)

I installed rc49 on a few of our >100m links (PtP and PtMP) and neither MCS or Signal Quality have changed. Throughput seems better, though, as running a traffic generator over our longest link (160m?) nets a solid 500Mbps full-duplex with little fluctuation. Used to be all over the place. Seeing a lot more link downs, too, but that might be due to rain we've been having. Should we be seeing better MCS and/or Quality readings? What exactly is being improved?

Just a heads up, I had an issue with 6.42rc56 on a multipoint (ap-bridge) AP. Interfaces weren't showing up and the station wasn't connecting. I switched to bridge mode and everything worked again. Really digging the rssi and tx-sector-info, but I don't think it's ready for ap-bridge mode yet.

The perfect product for the 60Ghz, would be a point-to-multipoint solution, clearly with high gain CPE antennas for distances up to max 1km.
Possibility to connect up to 50/60 customers on a single cell
Channels smaller than the 2000Mhz (1000Mhz or 500Mhz)
TxPower increased to 20dB
A integrated failover 5ghz radio could be failover when primary 60Ghz fail due to rain

With this solution provider wisp can delivery 100/200/500 Mbps to customers and fight vdsl fttc/ftth of cable isp

Confirmed. The interface hangs if I set the mode to ap-bridge.

I'm kinda keen to see some more helpful SNMP OIDs soon - as it would be really useful to see how the link behaves in bad weather. e.g. coding scheme, and RX and Tx sig strength?

I would be pleased to have on option in the Wireless60G to
- run a script (like netwatch)
- or disable/enable the bridge port status depending on Signal (or CCQ in future)

This would be useful to switch to backup before link quality goes down to loosing packets.

You can do it that now just run script in scheduler read RSSI or signal and disable or enable port in bridge or whatever you wont it is possible now with script run in scheduler.

yes, i know, i can run a scheduler.
however generally in wireless would be a nice option to offer a (netwatch alike) option to run script in case of
- signal (or ccq) is decreasing and reached X value (disable in bridge or dyn.routing)
- signal (or ccq) is increasing and reached Y value (enable in brdige or dyn.routing)

Would be nice even with general wireless package.

The coding scheme is available through : MCS

sofar I am happy with 60ghz dishes, hopefully there would not be any bugs with them to run on production : )
still under big question, will they beat 2.7-3km range or not, so far as I calculated should be on the limits, with fail-over to existing 5ghz could be a good improvement.

increased supported distance for wAP 60G to 200+ meters.
@strods: does this apply to all units, since the beginning of product distributions or is it limited only to some HW version? I know it has been reached by SW modification and phase array patterns, just want to be sure it is not HW dependent.

Thank you.

It is OK, that it is about SW improvements, but this SW improvements improves HW specifications. Maybe I was not clear enough, so once again (hope you will not consider it as spamming...)
Does the improvement for 200 meters apply for all WAP60G units which have been produced (regardless of license level) or is it valid only for some HW revisions (if there are any...) of WAP60G?

Thank you.

Improvements in SW many times improve overall functionality. Therefore one can not say what's HW specification... better to refer to it as "system" specification.

In my company (I work for mobile division of incumbent telco) we have an internal joke about vendors: "yet again they managed to speed-up execution of infinite loop". And that particular (world-class) vendor officially changes capacity figures in their documentation ... or better yet, the specification explicitly states the SW version it's valid for.

So yes, SW improvements can considerably improve performance and capacity without any HW change.

Remember that a phased array is the antenna rough equivalent of a FPGA chip. So, just reconfiguring it can be equivalent to installing a new antenna.

In my case (units purchased in February) the change was so dramatic that it caused overload problems (my link is short, 20 - 30 m across a street). I had to reduce power, go figure! :)

For all WAP60g users please Mikrotik to explain the TX-sector numbers. For use of PtMP or colocation, it would be very useful to know the angles and directions of radiation. Please also add the option to modify the RX sector or turn off the beamforming routine. Thanks

No, tx-sector 29 means +0.6 degrees azimuth, -0.2 degrees elevation. tx-sector is just a sector (beam configuration) identifier that translates to some predefined azimuth/elevation combination, as output to the console.

I have a pair of WAP-60G and have modified some reflectors to increase range up to 1-mile, is there still any distance LIMIT in the software that would prevent them from even registering if they could see each other at 1600 meters? Do I need the latest RC firmware?

As said a few times in other topics, this will not work well. The devices are precisely calibrated so that the beamforming antenna array knows exactly how to adjust itself. If you put that into a reflector, it gets really confused. It may work sometimes, but most likely it will not work.

For a reflector to work properly you really need to "flood" it with radiation.

If the antenna main lobe is more like a sharp pencil the reflector won't be so effective.

Think about a new room with 200 students.
- In the ceiling there will 9 double sockets with RJ45
- I'll add 9x cAP AC to those with lowered sending power...
- I will also have some RJ45 sockets.

Ist WAP 60G meant to work like cAP AC with CAPSMAN enabled, multiple concurrent SSIDs enabled and support for 20/30 smartphones connected?

/interface w60g set 0 tx-power=[1..15] or default.

In my case set 0 tx-power=10 works great, it links fine with 5 as well.

However, be careful with this setting when updating firmware. If they make changes to the antenna patterns you may need to change/remove it.

The correct answer should sound, Mikrotik does not want it, unfortunately. There is no technical reason why the WAP60g does not work well in the focus of the parabola. When receiving (RX) everything is OK, unfortunately the transmission angle (TX) is set to a much smaller angle, so the parabols are not very bright. If it was possible to set the beam angle (TX) fixed or much larger, it would be after the problem. Well, maybe we'll get a special version of FW, WAP60g in the focus of the parabola ...

Re: Significant improvement for 60 GHz solutions

please show us exactly how are you testing this. We get full speed on much higher distances by using same testing tools.
make sure that testing PCs has enough power, if possible run test in multi core mode, use multiple streams as well.

Re: Significant improvement for 60 GHz solutions

In simple words, you can get ~900Mbits not only at 100 meters, but now even at 200 meters.
Hi Normis and friends,

Question: 1
Is this speed ~900Mbps only single upload or download bandwidth tests or both directions?

Sinario: 1 I need advice on please?
I setup a 60GHz point to point link, with RB4011iGS+ connected to the links on either side. (Routers not in a bridge configuration IP's directly on the interface of router port)

Equipment:
CAT6 shielded outdoor cable. (3 meters) both high site and CPE simulation sides.
Shielded CAT6 RJ45 connectors.
24 volt power feed.

Distance between links was 160 meters signal was between 90 and 100.
TCP test: Freq 58320
Upload 940Mbps
Download 940Mbps
Both directions 884 / 885 Mbps

0 packet loss

I did the same TCP both directions (Upload and Download) test directly between the 2 routers with a half meter CAT5e cable and the speeds are 918 / 917 Mbps

Is this the fastest throughput i can expect through the links my boss would like to know?

I am happy with the testing results.

Is there any other settings that I can adjust besides ensuring good alignment and change between the four frequencies available, with router OS 6.44.5?

Thank you in advance!
