~2500ft P2MP Network Suggestions

I'm looking for suggestions for the property pictured below. Internet access will originate from house A and be tranmitted to houses B (800ft) and C (2,600ft).  There is a clear line of site between all 3 locations and approximitely a 70 degree angle between B and C from A.  

 

I'm honestly overwhelmed by all of the options available. I was considering the PrismStation AC with the 90 degree antenna at point A, but maybe that is overkill?   Eventually, we would like to add a few more connections around the pond for WiFi access points, but right now I'd be happy with the above.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Are the other locations you might want wifi at between points B and C? Keep in mind that AirMAX AC radios can't connect to normal WiFi clients, so you'll need another Airmax AC radio + WiFi AP to connect a normal client back to A.

 

What kind of bandwidth do you need between points A/B and A/C?

 

PrismStation is overkill for this, unless you have other 5GHz links in place at the same spots already. I would suggest the LiteAP-AC at A (https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/liteap-ac/) and a NanoBeam AC at B and C.  If there's not good line of sight, then 2x Nanobeams at A (each pointing at B or C), and a nanobeam at B and C pointing back at A. If you do NanoBeams at A, then you might need some physical separation between them, or the isolator shield (sold separately). 

 

 

Edited because I missed that original post mentioned clear LOS.

The additional wifi APs would be located on the little golf course between A and C (between 1000ft and 2000ft marks in the picture).  I do understand that an additional Airmax radi and wifi AP would be required.

 

Bandwidth requirements are quite low since service to the ISP at A is pretty bad, but still an order of magnitude better than that at point C.  50-100Mbps between A/B and A/C would be plenty.

You should have no problem hitting 50-100Mbps with a LiteAP-AC and a couple NanoBeams.

I'd set these up as two separate PTP links, with NanoBeams on the shorter one and LiteBeams on the longer one.
