How many 4mp ip cameras (not Ubiquity) can I put on a M5 AP before I saturate the bandwidth. my application will have a max of 20 cameras.  I'm covering a storage facility.

A well set up AirMax M5 PtP bridge with CLOS and no incursion running RX levels between -50 to -60db will attain around 75Mbps.

Re: 200+ Camera Deployment

I expect 20 cams to use somewhere between 150 and 250 mbps depending on settings so more than what M5 is capable of.

Re: 200+ Camera Deployment

If a M5setup won't handle it,  what would you suggest?
