AirMax PtMP question from a newbie

Dear community,

 

Would greatly appreciate any advise you could lend. I have worked with the UniFi line for several years now but lack experience with the AirMax line. Client wants to setup wireless Point to Multi-Point network between three barns and home. Please see attached document. Client purchased two NanoStation Loco M5s. I'm unsure of exactly what equipment is needed to complete the design. My lack of experience is holding me back on this design. Can you please advise? Thank you in advance.

Re: AirMax PtMP question from a newbie

He purchased two NanoStation M5s but needs three locations connected to the base? Could pick up one more NanoStation M5 and possibly get a Rocket M5 and matching omni. Had he purchased two NanoStation M2s, he could have got away with one more NanoStation M2 and a PicoStation probably...

A rocket m5 and omni at the "base":

 

AMO‑5G13

 

and 3 nano/loco m5's, one at each location.

 

M5 and M2 will not communicate with each other.

Correct, he has one base and needs to connect to three remote locations. Are you suggessting one Rocket M5 and an omni antenna at the base and utilize Nanostation M2's for the three remote sites?

You had said NanoStation M5s in previous post. Are they 2G or 5G?

Client has them in a box but we have not opened them. Should the box mention this information?

Yes, are they called M5 or M2 on the box?

NanoSTation Loco M5 (part #LocoM5).

Does this automatically assume it is 5GHz?

Re: AirMax PtMP question from a newbie

Disregard my question, I crossreferenced the model numbers and now understand the 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz correlation.
