loco m2 in pairs one to send broadband the other to send cctv

I've been using loco m2s to send cameras signals with no problem but now need to send separate camera signal and broadband signal, i know i can use 2 pairs of m2s but not easy to get the distance required between the 2 units (read 1m vertically and 3m horizontally) to not clash is there a different product or way of sending the 2 signals so they don't clash

Re: loco m2 in pairs one to send broadband the other to send cctv

There are third-party screening options available for various Ubiquiti radios including locos. You can often operate device with closer proximity if you have good signals on your links, the main issue is the lack of spectrum at 2.4GHz as there are only three non-overlapping 20MHz frequency blocks.

 

Assuming you have enough bandwidth available on your link you could use managed switches at each end to encapsulate the CCTV and broadband LANs within separate VLANs so they share the available bandwidth but otherwise are completely isolated from each other.

I wouldn't be eager to use 2.4GHz radios for links in any

well-populated area; there is far too much interference.

If you use a wide channel, that makes interference worse.

 

I would not use 'M' series raidios for new applications.

Instead use pairs of NS-5AC or NS-5AC-Loco for short

distances, or NBE-5AC-Gen2 for longer distances.

 

You can combine any traffic you like on the same 5AC

radio link; it acts like an Ethernet cable for most purposes.

You can use one or more subnets, or VLANs if you choose.  Dave

Thanks for your replies it's a open area with very little houses or wifi around so hoping the locos should be ok, that's very interesting that i can separate them with different subnets or Vlans this is all new to me as only just getting more into networking etc
