Litebeam M5 17.9 km p2p Link

by Saturday

Hi all,

 

I was planing to deploy a low capacity p2p where my client was limited on budget and i decided to try out this low cost high end radio Lite Beam M5. This was a planned site survey but at last we had to complete the work bydoing the full installation since the results were way above expectition. 

 

Below are the screen shots taken. the capacity is quite enough since we needed to do a 6Mbps link and we are able to hit to 14mbps down and 12mbps up at that 17.9km.

Hi,

 

I have a question. On the first image it shows a link at 36 Mbps TX/RX rate, yet you were onbly able to achieve 12 with 14 Mbps? What's the explanation?

 

Thank you.

@illusionsacc We used lite beam too. Did a firmware upgrade to 5.6.8 and we are able to set it up in AP mode.

@cosminp Nice question though i havent found out the actual answer about it but from my throughput experience with M series radio is 1/2 of the Tx& Rx Rate.
