NV2 Sync

Wed Oct 14, 2020 4:42 pm

We have many sectors which use NV2 and have had good success with NV2.
With that said there are issues with Sync loss.
We are using 30deg RF elements twistport horns with the Shielded RB Enclosures.
I believe that this limits the sectors from hearing the beacons affecting Sync.

What is the feasibility of using omnitiks as NV2 masters with no clients?
Would there be broadcasts that could be seen by clients of the sectors which could impact performance?

If anybody has Ideas about this please advise.
Perhaps even MikroTiks in-house wireless engineers have suggestions?

It's a good idea if the horns can hear the omntik with a good signal. You must have an omnitik for each frequency.

My real concern is : will there be unwanted broadcasts outside of the sync beaconing which may interfere with data broadcast from the slave sectors?

P.S. to Mikrotik: would be nice if there was an NV2 beaconing mode as opposed to AP-Bridge. If, and only if, the OmniTik Master works in this configuration. Or perhaps it is unnecessary.

Will keep this thread posted.

I have deployed an OmniTik5ac.
It acts as the NV2 Master, with default authenticate off.
All Sectors are syncing, and so far everything is playing well.

Hello,
Are you saying that you use NV2 sync with success ?
If so, are notice performance leak in upload.

For example, 2 APs with 60 Mbps capacity over the air, are able to deliver each 40 Mbps in download in BTest TCP-4 with a CPE using NV2 sync at 70% downlink ratio. But when try to test the upload with the same CPE on both APs, we can hardly get a 5 Mbps...
30% of 60 Mbps = 18 Mbps
So, I was exepected something around 10 Mbps at least...

Do you have some working example ?

Regards,
Michael
P.S. Remember Chicago MUM ;)
