IF you are going from the Base Radio, direct to the customer's house, using a CPE radio, then the AirMax devices are what you want to use.

 

You would setup a Main site, and put up several Antenna Sectors, of Four 90 degree sector antennas, or Three 120 degree sector antennas.  Each Sector antenna would have a Rocket radio on it.

 

Then to the Customer's house, you would use NanoLoco's (13 Db gain) for close up, NanoStations (16 Db gain,little farther out), and NanoBridges/NanoBeams (22-25 Db gain) for the outlying areas.

 

Easiest way to figure this out, is to do a PtMP calculation on one of the sites that provides this.  It will show you what signal strength at what distance you need.  You are shooting for a signal strength of -50 to -70 on each CPE unit.

Select your CPE device as needed to provide that !

 

You want to have use 10-20 Mhz bandwidth on each AP/CPE sector, and keep the number of customers on each to under 30.

 

Each CPE MUST have direct Line of Sight to the AP, no building, trees, etc. in the way!

Re: Small ISP setup

For 2 ghz AP radios:

  90 degree sectors = AM-2G16-90

120 degree sectors = AM-2G15-120

 

For 5 ghz AP radios:

  90 degree sectors = AM-5G20-90

120 degree sectors = AM-5G19-120

 

I would go with 5 ghz for your system, as there is more frequencies available to use, and you can then use the 2 ghz for WiFi routers in the houses.

Re: Small ISP setup

hoping all is good with you..

I am getting in touch with because you've provided some usefull infomartion on this forum.

 

So I have an investor that would like to have a small ISP in Republic Democratic of Congo (DRC) and I was given the opportunity to provide technical requirement and estimation cost.

 

So I wonder if you would be interested to work with me on this so I can provide the technical proposal as soon as possible.

 

hoping to hear from you soon.
