NSM5 config considerations

Looking for confirmation that this will work:  Unif  to NSM5, NSm5 will have a UniFi AP powered on the secondary port.  Bridge this NSm5 to second NSm5 slightly over 100m with some really minor obstacles ( tops of very tall bushes) .  The second NSm5 will have a G3  attached to the second port.   what are considerations for NSm5 configurations ?NSM5 config.png

Re: NSM5 config considerations

A few things to consider.

 

  1. You will need to confirm if the UAP model you are planning to use supports 24VDC.  The UVC G3 does, but UAP will be model dependent.
  2. You may need to upgrade the POE from a 12Watt (24VDC/0.5A) to 24Watt (24VDC/1Amp).  The NSM5 has a max power consumption of 6.5Watts, while the UVC-G3 is 4Watts or 9Watts if using the IR extender.  If you are not using the IR extender, you could use the include 12Watt power (6.5W+4W)

Re: NSM5 config considerations

the UAP is UAP-AC-M-PRO and is using the 48V, 0.5A PoE  injector that came with it... Can I power the NSm5 with that and the M-PRO?

 

Will not be using the IR Extender, so the POE injector supplied with the NSm5 should be adequate.  

 

Power settings for both ofthe NSm5's... set it to minimal?

Re: NSM5 config considerations

You won't be able to power the NSM5 with 48V.  It will only accept 24VDC power. 

 

I would suggest the NS5AC (updated Nanostation that supports 24/48VDC).  You could use the POE included with the M-Pro to power both units.

Re: NSM5 config considerations

will the NS5AC work as a station with NS5M as the  access point?

No, only the other direction is supported.  airMAX AC AP -> airMAX M Station.
