New AF24 link replacing 2 years old Rocket AC link

by a week ago - last edited a week ago

Yesterday I replaced a Rocket 5AC link 50 MHz 380 Mbps with AirFiber 24.

Not only do I release 50 MHz 5 GHz channel width for other purposes, I also lowered overall latency with 2-3 ms on the link....

It's moving some traffic.....

Today at 13:00 it was raining heavily.....

The link has OSPF + BFD setup, so that it immediately takes another route in the network, if it drops out....

I will later tune the settings. It should drop Ethernet if it's below > 80 Mbps capacity...

This is a nice post jjonson.

 

Nice traffic graphs, what kind of software are you using to monitor your devices ?

Do you have a failover link with a lower frecuency ? What about the distance ?

@acriollo@SimonK is right. It's not Observium (Any wISP using that should upgrade to LibreNMS). It's http://librenms.org

 

LibreNMS has full support for all UBNT devices and will discover them without problems. Also relevant information is pulled from the devices, like signal strength etc. and best of all over time graph...

@DWC with LibreNMS supports syslog and backup.

 

My LibreNMS setup show syslog for all MK and UBNT equipment.
