We are looking at deploying some MT RB532s w/ SR5 cards in them. We are a small WISP with a legacy Canopy system & a Locustworld Mesh system running on dual interface PC WRAP boards. With the WRAP boards, we have had nothing but problems (rebooting, hangs, etc.,). They are dual interface with 2.4 backhauls and APs on the same board. Canopy works great but is cost prohibitive.
I have kind of drawn the conclusion that a MT system with backhaul and APs each on their own dedicated board would be more stable (with the biggest drawback I see being the increase in price for a single site). But my main goal is stability, and if the extra cost gets us that, then to me it is worth it.
Until we get equipment and I can do a hands on, the only thing I can do is pick the minds of the more experienced. Am I wrong in thinking that a multi-radio setup on a single board makes them less stable?
I would really appreciate some comments on the pros & cons of each setup, what you did, and if you had it to do over again, would you do the same thing?
