AirFiber 65km / 40miles over sea

Aquí les compartimos nuestro enlace sobre el golfo nuevo, desde la ciudad de Puerto Madryn a Puerto Pirámides (Península Valdés) en la provincia del Chubut - Argentina.

Costó un poco la orientación y calibración pero los resultados son más que satisfactorios Man Very Happy

Dependiendo de las condiciones climáticas extremas del golfo hay días que baja un poco la modulación.

En la captura de pantalla se puede apreciar la configuración realizada.

¡Muy agradable! Pero a esa distancia, una AirFiber 5x pudo haber hecho mucho mejor.


El 5x es más adecuado para larga distancia.

Hi Cody!, thanks for you appreciation. You're right, an AirFiber 5x would offer better performance, but our resseller can't provide us that family product yet. In future we will upgrade our equipment once we have the chance. The challenge here (and what we wanted to share) is that we crossed all the gulf of Peninsula Valdés. We believe that, taking note of the circumstances, the result was more than satisfactory. Here you have a map to see the geography. Regards! P.S.: Sorry for the english, some help from google translate too Man Wink

What a link for a pair of AF5s!  Do you have any issues with that link going over water?  I'd be curious how signal/capacity changes.  Great job, and thanks for sharing!

Also - What are the antenna heights ASL on each end?

Yes, issues.... many! Man Very Happy During the day, the signal level and capacity varies due to fog, rain, humidity, some days we have a fairly extreme weather. Generally the modulation remains between 64QAM MIMO and 256QAM MIMO. Some days it fall to 2QPSK SISO or less. But most time we have a capacity over 90 / 90 mbps Antenna heights: Pto. Madryn: 165 meters, 519ft (tower 48mt) Pto. Pirámides 133 meters, 445ft (tower 48mt)
