Were toying with the idea of offering a 20mbps contented service in 5ghz bands. Do you think this is really possible in a point to multipoint scenario?
We have the oportunity to use all MT hardware and we hope to use 5.4ghz for backhauls and 5.8ghz for service provision. We know this is operating on the limits of the technology and we wonder if this is a pipe dream or if it's actually possible! We would expect not to offer guarenteed bandwidth but would hope at some times the burst download speed would reach around 20mbps mark and that even at busy times the speed should still be pretty good.
Does anybody with any real experience of these speeds have any feedback? We think the p2p backhaul performance is possible but were not sure if point to multipoint AP's really can achieve this level of service? If it was possible how many users can we pop on each channel?
