I am considering Mikrotik Wireless Wire 60ghz to replace my current Ubiquiti Nanobeam ac setup, since my ISP is going to offer 1GBit link speeds in 2019.
My current setup looks like this:
- ISP Link/Router in Building 1
- GBit LAN connection from router to Nanobeam 5AC 16
- Wireless Bridge from 5AC16 #1 to 5AC16 #2 on Building 2
- Distance is about 50 meters with absolute free line of sight
The nanobeam setup handles my current max. speed of 200MBit just fine but will probably max out at about 400MBit/sec.
I have been looking for reviews on the Wireless Wire kit but couldn't find too many ... the ones that did speed/throughput tests showed a max speed of about 600-700 MBit/sec.
Now my question is, is 600-700 the maximum that I can expect with my scenario? Or should a stable link of 800/900+ MBit/sec be possible on 50m/free line of sight, and not much 60ghz interference if any....
Another question is about weather ... I have read that heavy rain and especially snow might cause issues with the 60ghz link? Is this true? Or should the connection be stable during bad weather conditions as well? The antennas would be covered by the roof tops of the two buildings, so they shouldn't be directly covered with snow etc ...
