Full Duplex PTP over 7 to 14Kms

Fri Feb 27, 2015 2:10 pm

Anybody using Mikrotik full duplex (x4) in PTP links between 7 to 14Kms?
What throughput can be expected ?

no mikrotik products come in full duplex modes as of today.

you need 4 radios cards 2 on each side for full duplex to work.

Or use OSPF and 4 QRT's for example and base setup on http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Dual_Setup_with_OSPF.

I have a few sites doing that - for example we use an RB850GX2 at each end and 4 x QRT's.

Set up two unique /29 subnets for each wireless link and the radio's as simple bridge (bridge/station-bridge).

Apply the different costs to the RB850 interfaces facing the radios so traffic flows in a clockwise (or CCW) direction and you will see uplink on one segnment and downlink on the other.

Disable one link to prove recovery. This gives full duplex and fail-over should one link fail.

Another way (not personally tried) would be to use bonding and two layer two bridges. This is not strictly full duplex but gives good aggregated bandwidth and failover :-) http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=70808

I had for 2 years a link with 4xSXT bonded. It worked very well.

90% of our towers uses this method.

Usually we use LigoWave because they are more reliable in high noise environments.

For the other links where there is no interference we use rb912uag-5hpnd and bridge them.

Gets 100Mbps + both ways.

If one link dies ospf takes care of the rest.

I would say it works so well that if you don't have network monitoring you wont notice when one link goes down

In my opinion: ospf is better.

Can I ask the max distance between towers using this method?

I've just found my first bonding result. Sadly the tutorial no longer exist. I've used 4xSXT and 2xRB750GL.

Found it : http://wiki.specialistoff.net/index.php ... ti:Bonding

It was a better choice for me than full duplex.

Hi,

The longest link we have is about 150km.

Using RBNetmetal 5's and the biggest dishes ubnt makes.

Signal is -57/-55 getting about 40-60Mbps

Not of the physical equipment, but I can share point A and B

I can share a screenshots of the signal and distance

can i keep your photo around all my installations as an inspiration?? :)

are you having a clear LOS for 150kms? because i thought the earth's curvature spoils RF signals when you work in the GHz frequencies.

please correct me if i am wrong.

That is true.

I haven't checked LOS when curvature is calculated.

For this link I only want stability, the tower at B are providing internet to mostly farmers with voip, since there is no cellphone reception.

I think it is near perfect because point A has a elevation of 1.9Km and B 1.1Km

Any good tool to check the fresnel clerance?
