Today I tested the PBE-5AC-500 to our new AC sendlocation on a concrete watertower. We use the Rocket 5AC Lite with a 60 degree antenna on the watertower. Previously we have been with the NBE-5AC-19 tested to 8km but the 50cm version was today really a turn. We have looking for a location with LOS sought about 15km away. The testsite was 17,6km distance. I know I can use better the PBE-5AC-620 or AC RocketDish with those distance but I did not exist.
In the test we tried the internal speedtest on the AC-device and a speedtest on the Internet. Our internet connection at the watertower now has a maximum speed of 160 mbps download and 12 mbps upload.
We also phoned half an hour over this connection. The latency was constant at around 2ms. VoIP goes above expectations about this connection. However, it was inconvenient that every half a minute to the sound from the other side dropped a second. From the test location to the other side was it 100% right, at least, they said there was no failure. It makes no difference if I loaded the connection with a speedtest or connect the VoIP phone directly to the PBE-5AC-500. That requires more attention in the future, I have just opened a ticket for it.
I'm curious what you think of this test?
