Building a AP and CPE 900mhz

Tue Jul 25, 2006 4:17 pm

Wondering what to use to build a good AP/CPE combo for one of my test bed towns. I want to use the SR9 card. I was thinking about putting sr9 with a 532A and then using wrap boards for the CPE. Maybe just use a rubber duck antenna for customers within 1 mile, then they can just place is on their desk and hopefully get good signal. customers outside the 1 mile, I will use wrap board in the outdoor case and mount it to the outside of thier house. Any siggestions on hardware, and if this will work as good as I think it will? Thank you.

I haven't researched the AP as much as the client unit, but Rootenna has a good 900MHz unit on wisp-router.com.

with it, all you really need to worry about is POE and outdoor ethernet.

I haven't found good AP antenna I like for 900MHz at this point, but the real money, the cost, is on the client AP. Rootenna seems to be the way to go.

Indoor cpe

I wouldn't count on an indoor rubber duckie going more than a few hundred yards - a mile is unrealistic in my opinion.

I have marginal signal at my desk with trango 900 11 db ap to a su with 10db patch at 0.25 miles both with 26dbm output and -98 receive sensitivity.

I'd scratch that idea :)

The Trango 900 is only rated at 400mw, the SR9 does 700mw.
