SXT comes with a level3 license. For PtMp u need level 4 license.
Get an AP. I would suggest a RB433AH with R52Hn and dual pol 5ghz sector antennas.
Use SXT as client CPE only.

yes, mahnet says is right, before you buy a routerboard, please see level first! and see the manual level.

level 3 license can only p2p link, level 4 license or above is p2mp.

rather than upgrading the license for license i would suggest you to go for a AP and sector antenna.
the sxt has very narrow beam hence u may not be able to cover a bigger area even if u upgrade the license.

The beam of the SXT is not very thin.
Thus the coverage area, if choosen wisely might be better (more far away from the AP) than of a 60°, 90°, or 120° sector let alone 360° omni.

All depends on the given cirumstances.

I usually do small PtMP setups with 16dBi to 24dBi dishes, which are working very good.

So I presume that a PtMP setup with the SXT as AP - if done correctly - can work better than the OmniTik or a sector-antenna driven system.

dishes for ptmp or sxt can be good for 2-3 clients who actually fall along the same line as the beam pattern of sxt or dish.
The AP and sector is a more sorted approach

also, upgrading the license of SXT costs 45$. It might be cheaper to simply purchase a different kind of routerboard.

Normis, it's not always the money you pay directly, which is important.
You also need to calculate the efforts needed to assemble a routerboard + outdoor case + sector antenna.
Or in the worst case to exchange an SXT by such a setup.

Upgrading a license from L3 to L4 is much easier and more effective then climbing up a tower and exchanging hardware!
