Are there stats anywhere for maximum packets-per-second for rocket M5 and nanostation M5 products. Looking at using these for pTp units but not sure they have the horsepower to replace my ligowave equipment. I don't question the ability to do high bandwidth from a sigle user but what about when there are 500 users and 5000 streams competing for radio time?

Don't get me wrong, these numbers are excellent. It might have been better if they used a faster Atheros processor, of course. I think Atheros makes a 680MHz chip they could have used. blah, blah, blah

Right now about the most PPS I see through a single link is 5k so if these in fact will do 10k comfortably they'll work fine for my minor backhauls and certainly for AP's. The ligowave backhauls are supposed to do 50k but I have no way of testing that. They do perform well but these are a fraction of the price. We'll see how stable they are....

If you don't SNMP the actual radio, you could do it on the switch ports you are using.
I would suggest doing your own testing rather than using hearsay or marketing material. The radios are cheap enough to get a pair.
