We are waiting for it, when will be available?
Good move, the 802.3af/at POE, but the power supply is only for home users.
For a serious stabile link, I would use a 48V 1,6A power supply, no?

Interesting but expensive, should be higher gain as 23dBi is too low for suggested price, higher gain is what I am looking for as there is very dish antennas on the market with around 27dBi gain, loads at 30dBi and higher.

License = L3, it can be used as CPE (client) or PTP (one end as CPE, the other in bridge mode, same as AP mode with just 1 client)

Unshielded cable with outdoor device?

It was either this, or remove it from specifications altogether. This way, at least maybe somebody benefits from such option.

Something wrong with the design ?

some people like to know why it is not possible with shielding.

If we don't use shielding al our links would-be running @ 10 mbit half duplex

Do you mean unshielded cable required only for 802.3at POE?

There's no such restriction when using passive POE?

Yes, of course.

It works fine with Shielded cable if you don't need 802.3af

Like I already said, you can use passive PoE with any cable, and 802.3af with unshielded cable. Provided Voltage range is correct for any PoE

QRT is almost three times more expensive than SXT Lite5. If QRT is "very high quality" please made something like QRT Lite5 for distant clients.

SXT and QRT should not be compared, the SXT is also much smaller and has much smaller antenna gain. What are you saying exactly?

There is a product for every distance/price category. Choose according to your needs.

No, there is not. Normis look at ubiquiti products. They have "product for every distance/price category". We need something like nanobeam NanoBeam M5-300 and M5-400 in the same prices. You don't have products with 22dBi and 25dBi gain in these price.
This is not just my opinion. Many times forum users please you about products like these.

Would be better with L4 license.
Using it as a CPE for "home users" is just overkill.
The same goes for QRT-5 and QRT-5 ac (which both have L4 license and we are
using QRT-5 as APs for medium range p2mp connections).

Mikrotik, please make cheap 5GHz high gain CPE unit, SEXTANT is neither cheap (for what it is)
nor a high gain device (just 2dBi higher than SXT Lite5).
We need 22-25dBi CPE under $100 price (even single pol device 1x1 would be excellent for the right price).

Dear Normis,
for a less than 1/2 of DynaDish's price we are assembling Mikrotik
based 23dBi 1x1 5GHz CPE unit (with third-party single-pol antenna).

I'm sure you could do it better in the same price range and still make a decent profit.

No they don't work for free, we're paying our workforce :) .
But we do need just about 100pcs a month so it's not too much to handle - it takes about
10 minutes per 1 CPE and our crews are completing them just before installation at costumer site.

It is for our home-users who are too far away for regular SXTs.
So, we're not reselling those CPEs on open market.
We are in WISP business, mass-manufacturing CPEs (or anything else) isn't something we want to do but
there is nothing like Airgrid with 22-27dBi antenna in your current product line (in "below 100$" price category).

Economic situation is far from great today (especially in my country) and we're simply trying to
minimize costs for us and our less-demanding costumers.
For higher demanding (and paying) services QRT and Dynadish are just fine.

That's all.
Regards,
M.

+1 for cheap CPE 22-23 dbi version

SXT is super , cheap for 500-700 metres max

SEXTANT hmm - This product is no longer necessary

we need cheap QRT :) L3 licence, 100mbit port is enough, but need 23dbi antena with cheap price 110-120USD
or smaller dynadish (22-23 dbi fi 33cm) 100mbit port L3 licence , and this low price

Total QRT better than DynaDish with standard RB in the middle.
Only do handle suggested simpler and less expensive for QRT such as dynadish

I have one 6.81km (4.23mi) link going right now. I have had it up for a month or two. I would say that it performs about as well as the rest of our MT BHs. We generally use ARC dual polarity panels in an ARC integrated enclosure with RB922s.

I do like the mount for the DynaDish. The capability to aim the dish but keeping it from slipping down the mount is a plus.

The one issue I am having with it right now is similar to the issues I have with the RB922s, they have a tendency to lock up for no reason at all. While the RB922 is a huge improvement over the RB711s, I don't have this issue with the RB711s.

Other than that, I can see using these more often as the cost to build an ARC IE with a panel and board is much more significant. While they have been really reliable for us, having an all-in-one unit is nice.

The board stops responding to pings. On the DynaDish, it will stop passing traffic and be non-resposive to anything other than mac-telnet (because I can always access it via mac-telnet, I have not tried). On some of the RB922s, the board will be come unresponsive to pings, no winbox access, but will still pass traffic.

The DynaDish is currently running 3 We experienced this issue starting around 6.26 if I not mistaken.

If the wireless interface keeps connection, you should be able to login from either from the router on the far end or the device on the near end. I am going to assume your ether and wlan are bridged and an address is assigned to the bridge. If so, a MAC telnet will not work from the registration table. You need to go to IP > Neighbors and mac-telnet from there. It will work, as this hasn't only happened on the DynaDish5, but also RB922s we use across our network.

You need to go to IP > Neighbors and mac-telnet from there. It will work, as this hasn't only happened on the DynaDish5, but also RB922s we use across our network.
Even better, enable Tools > RoMON and you'll be able to access, as long as both units are connected.

I would however netinstall and reset to no defaults the units using latest 6.33.5 ,then reload the configuration exports and test.

This year?
Normis, please write something more.
very low cost, very good gain, light and nice design. had it in my hands just yesterday :D
I am not sure about the date at the moment.
Any news about this?

I would like to know the total EIRP possible . Sure , it has a 25 dBi antenna , but what is the radio power output? Logging into unit and looking at TX power I see 17dB as default. Is that the maximum?

Maximum Power Levels depend on modulation rates (MCS) according to http://routerboard.com/RBDynaDishG-5HacD

So maximum is 31dBm, before applying local regulatory restrictions and taking into account antenna gain; PIRE at this MCS would be 54dBm which I doubt is allowed on any country; also if your PTP will only work with these settings, your design and equipment pick is simply not right.

Stop looking at power as the sole criteria to get PTP equipment. Higher power levels also introduce higher distortion and reduces SNR.

Some teasing please Normis! Will it be possible to see it at Slovenia MUM? :D

Is there a way to do the 5 sec reset without going up a tower to push the button? I have installed one of these already at 150' and it would not communicate with the mac address software or via IP. The other one had the same issue which I was able to resolve on the ground by performing a 5 sec reset with the button.

Thanks

@Marc85: Is it completely unresponsive? Is it linked by wireless to any other equipment?

It's completely unresponsive via mac or IP, the first unit was installed before we realized there was a problem. I am actually the climber who installed it, I took the other dish home with me as an offer of good will to the customer to figure out if I could get it working. And I able to only by performing a 5sec reset, we attempted this onsite but the directions were misread while I was on the tower. After the 5sec reset it showed the default IP of XX....88.1 Is there a way to do this via some ethernet short without climbing up 200'?

Not that I am aware of... that would certainly be a welcome feature, implementing a "remote reset" signalling it from the ether poe wires.

Ros is able to detect cable length and pair status of pins with many of devices. It should not be so complicated to have a feature in routerboot to check it during the boot process or in ros to check it once per some interval during normal run or so.

Mikrotik DynaDish 5 - verses 922UAGS-5HPacD with external metal dish

FYI

I had a 12 km link using a DynaDish for both sides of the link. One DynaDish was located about 80 feet up a tower in a high RF noise environment (radio stations & radar & other APs). I experienced the following problems:
A) The POE Ethernet would almost never link at 1-gig. If it did, it would normally fall back to 100 meg full duplex in a few hours or so.
B) I could not get a good link connection rate and decent CCQ (bandwidth test could barely do 100 meg)
C) Lots of back-side noise getting into a DynaDish from other stuff (radio stations & radar & other APs) located behind the rear side of the DynaDish.
D) Lots of noise on the Ethernet
E) No second Ethernet port available.

We replaced both sides of the microwave link with a set of Mikrotik 922UAGS-5HPacD with external dishes. Wow - what a difference !!! Now things are much much much better :)
We now have the following:
A) Ethernet1 POE and SFP1 (with Ethernet SFP) both link at 1-gig
B) We have a link speeds of 650 & 702 with a CCQ in the 90s. I am now able to bandwidth test at 400 meg either way and can hold a solid 200 meg full-duplex (200 up and 200 down at the same time). And one side is not fully aimed correctly yet.
C) The back-side noise is now low and no longer creating link problem.
D) Noise on both Ethernet cables is now gone
E) Ability to use two Ethernet cables with both linked at 1-gig (now I can use spanning-tree on the Ethernet links)

So - in summary, I would suggest using a 922UAGS-5HPacD with external metal dish instead of a DynaDish with the integrated plastic dish.

I suspect the plastic DynaDish lets all kinds of noise leak in from the back-side and also that the front-side plastic reflector is not as good as a metal reflector would be.

So - anyways - now that I have two DynaDish Mikrotiks no longer in use, I am considering spray painting the front-side reflector and the entire back-side of the DynaDish with some kind of a metallic or chrome spray paint -or- getting them plated with a metallic shield. I suspect that metal plating would help reduce back-side noise leakage and also increase the front-side db antenna gain. Has anybody ever tried something like this ?

did you find any solution to reset the board without climbing the tower??

That is quite an innovative design.
