Well, yeah, a lot has happened in a year with this.
We upgraded to 6.48.2 recently (last month) and that has been pretty stable.
It also opened up the ability to use channel 66000, but on the clients you have to add it to the channel scan for it to pick up.
That does help a bit with another higher channel, though not sure if all radios are fully capable or not, still more testing needed.
We now have areas with up to 9 AP's with the third party shields co-located on a couple of poles.
We get away with that by careful separation of directions and channels, and not loading more than 4 clients per AP for now.
And we opened up more fiber fed locations in the area (four more in this particular high density one) with 4011's feeding PowerBox pro's on the roof on port 10 POE Out using high voltage 54v 1.5A power supplies. And then putting up to 4 more AP's on those to help diversify the client load on AP's, again to keep them below 4 clients an AP and allow room for growth.
We are doing 250Mbps and 500Mbps symetrical plans still on those.
Though in new areas we are reserving the Mikrotik now for only 500Mbps rate plans, and using UI LTU for 100 and 250Mbps asymmetrical delivery/plans.
We are also now using Cambium Terragraph and expanding on that 60GHz system.
It's a whole new bad of tricks, and speeds are sometimes all over the place, but it's for sure a MUCH more stable and scalable system already, using timing and GPS on the same 1-4 channels.
But they can also go out 700m up to nearly 8Gbps FDX with future channel bonding they say. But we'll see about that.
So far I haven't been able to test above GigE speeds on the V3000 clients...
It looks like you didn't want to answer the other few questions, but it's nice to hear about last year's experience.
For 6.48.2 I also haven't noticed any problems (thanks for the feedback).
You mentioned 66000. My CPE is best to go with 60 instead of 62/64/66 and I have no explanation for that.
Your 4 customers per AP - do you think this way you get a bakcup for the other 4 or because the PHY rate is better if there are only 4 customers?
Why choose a high voltage PSU?
Why did you choose UI LTU over ePMP?
Congratulations to Cambium Terragraph, I am also looking to the side, but if on wAP you hold 4 cpe, how much do you plan to hold on Cambium?
