Bonding or dual nstreme asking for suggestions/recommendatio

Tue Aug 21, 2007 6:05 pm

Hi there

We have the necessity of upgrade one of our links, that link carry our main internet feed, this link is about 3 miles long, this is due we are currently topping up it available bandwidth.

This links consists of two RB532's w/SR5's an 27 dBi hyperlink's grids, usually connected @54Mbps, the real throughput of this link is around 18-22Mbps Half duplex

So the idea is to upgrade this, and here's the big question and I am asking for your recommendations and experience.

- Option 1: Use a uATX intel mobo w/2.0 Ghz Core 2 Duo cpu, 1 GB RAM, 2 pci to miniPCI adapters a XR5 for TX and a CM9 for RX, all this connected to a PacWireless HD Series Dual polarization dish using dual nstreme. (Per side)

- Option2: Use two RB532's with one XR5 on each RB, Nstreme, same Pacwireless HD Series Dual polarization dish, one RB+XR5 connected to Vertical feed, the other RB+XR5 connected to H pol feed, then do bonding of these two links in a third RB532 board. (Per Side)

Which one of these two setups will give me best throughput?
Which one of these two setups will give us better reliability?

I have clear option2 two is a lot easier to implement, because option1 requires a bigger nema box up in the towers, requires ventilation, requires AC voltage upthere instead of PoE....

Best Regards

option3: simply replace the RB532's with RB333's.. Using nstream and regular 5ghz I'm able to get ~34 mbit tcp half duplex..

option4: setup a dual nstream link with a single RB333 and 2 cards on each end and get ~65 mbit tcp using that dual pol dish from 1&2..

option5: wait for the RB600 series and get even more bandwidth from a dual nstream link..

... but you had it indoors and that's totally different than going to real world and trying to consume 80MHz of scarce bandwidth ; not speaking about fact that those 80MHz are more like 100MHz really due to bandwidth overflow.
