Nano station set-up

Howdy,
Being that I'm old and not in anyway a nerd..I need some, a lot of advice.
I'm setting up a leased access channel on the local cable outlet. I have access to an old radio tower, the line of sight between this tower and the cable companies tower is 2 to 2/12 miles.
Having a dedicated computer/win tv 250 encoder...ethernet cat 5 cable...
Now I'm told that the NSM5 Nano Station (mimo) 5.8 ghz transmitter/receiver will work perfectly for this.
I'm going to connect the receiver at the headend to a STB Amino unit and send the programming directly from my computer over the access channel.
Do you see any problems with this set-up?, improvements?, upgrades?
Any advice I get will be greatly appreciated. Thanks...nodibs

Re: Nano station set-up

You can use a Nano M2 at both towers. I think Rory has been playing with some STB units for this.

Why the Nano M2 versus the Nano 5? Who is Rory and can he fill me on on stuff?
Thanks, nodibs

Rory is rconaway and he does lots of video integration.

The Nano M5 will get you better speeds.
