Nanobridge HP

I am looking for an airgrid for distance, but a nanobridge for speed.

Would be awesome to have them in the one model - a nanobridge HP

Like a NanoGrid ? :biggrinjester:

More seriously, if you need that type of performance, use a Rocket with the smallest dish or is it for CPE side ? +1 for a little more HP on the NanoBridge 2.4; not sure if required on the 5Ghz products...

Cheers.

Re: Nanobridge HP

Actually 'nornet' has an interesting idea.

Instead of using the 'smallest dish' that
Ubiquiti has, consider a 3rd-party 2X2
MIMO dish--say in the 24dBi range.

Because Rocket is so cheap, this can make
a good combination at a decent price. It's
not as 'decent' as AirGrid--but I wouldn't
use AirGrid for commercial links myself
unless I had no other options. Dave
No disclaimer. Nothing to sell. I need to fix that.

Re: Nanobridge HP

Next week we are going to put some Terrawave grid dishes on some RocketM365.
ATTN UBNT: in the USA, telecom systems commonly run at -50VDC (that means "positive" ground). Why is my toughswitch using +24V (negative ground)?

We have a Rocket running a dual pol Lanbowan panel and it's running like a swiss clock; 19dbi gain on each pol but this might not be the beam narrowness Ray is looking for...

Re: Nanobridge HP

Good idea- never thought of that.

Unfortunatley the rocket isnt so cheap here.

A rocket is about $100 USD and a rocket dish (30dbi is cheaper than 24dbi) is $220 USD

By comparison a nanobridge 25 or airgrid 27 are both about $120 - Would therefore be happy to pay a more to increase the dish size so its a 26 and the output power of the nanobridge goes up to 25db or 26db

Here the AP is considered a point to multipoint system with a 4 watt eirp limit, but the CPE are considered point-to-point, so they have a limit of 200 watts eirp - perfect for the super long distance CPE's that are only used for offsite backups where the client is doing most of the transmitting and needs a high upload speed and a low download speed.

Other antenna brands are more expensive from local suppliers. I may have to look at importing some antennas.

Re: Nanobridge HP

Ray,
I feel your pain :icon_mrgreen:; same rules apply in Canada, probably becasue were both part of Commonwealth (British) :icon_mrgreen:. We use the Rocket as an AP with the Lanbowan panel and limit output power (bottom line is 200$USD which is cheaper than a sector); on CPE side, we standardized NanoBridge with 10Mhz channels (on AP) as they can pull miracles through some foliage; so far, much better than M9 gear, and again, all proportions kept.
I know Lannbowan make these www.lanbowan.com/products/en_vpro.asp?id=778 or these www.lanbowan.com/products/en_vpro.asp?id=799 and since you are close to China mainland, probably shipping is not too bad; all proportions kept.
If I find better dual-pol dishes as we alloking for it too, I'll post. If you ever get one of these cheap dishes, let us know as we are looking at them from a technical point of view.
Cheers Ray.
