I am testing a mimosa B5 for a PtP link here at UNC Chapel Hill, right now at 2x80 I get  1 gbps total troughput,  (average 500 Mbps up and down) we have a UBNT Powerbeam 5AC at another location but looking to go standard airfiber or mimosa for all locations, anyone have suggestions for which airfiber to use? I am looking at the Airfiber X or airfiber 5XHD with smaller antenna the link is 2.2 miles.

At the 2.2 mile range you can use a airfiber 24 and get awesome speeds and free up your 5ghz frequency for other links. I haven't tried many mimosa links but the ones I have tried the ethernet has always broke and went to 100 instead of 1000.

@Rbradsher I would recommend an AF-5XHD with 23dBi dishes if you are looking for a small size, if you want the best gain go with a 2ft AF-5G30-S45.
