Prismstation addition

by on ‎07-12-2017 12:59 PM

Recently I added several prismstation 45 deg horns to a micropop. The horns on the prismstation is full aluminum, as is the radio itself. At first I was concerned about the azimuth getting changed if you ever have to swap a radio, but the swivel mount stays on the tower, thus preserving your aim. They seem to have good isolation, but I lose some of that having them in such close proximity.

 

Sync works nice (prismstations have GPS antenna) but I did discover that you need to have a reasonably good signal to noise ratio on the client, as it has trouble when it hears more than one AP to loudly.

 

 

I think I may need to adjust the downtilt a bit....bit much downtilt for a flatlander. I don't have many customers on these yet as this POP is pretty new.

Nice setup! How many clients do you have connected?

@UBNT-SNK currently only 12. I wanted to do some testing without affecting a large amount of customers, so I put it on a tower that has only been there for about a month.

@amishgenius A bit off topic but how are you finding the Litebeam 120? Can you give a few details on users, plans, average throughput etc. 

 

Thanks!

I really like the Litebeam for micro pops. Thing about micro pops is many times there is not a large concentration of clients. Throughput is very much like other AC products. I sell up to 20 meg.

So ho many clients can you get up to on Litebeam before start to see performance issues or do you have that many connected to those currently ?  We have about 10 of them to deploy in different areas and have not tested more than 6 or so clients so far.  Just wondering if specs show correctly or if can stretch a few more in without degrading performance...

@amishgenius I have been using LiteBeam AC-APs for micropops. Greate price for a setup with 1-5 clients. Add a shield and they're useable. But now with isoStation horns I prefer those instead. Great isolation and price (still cheap for a micropop), much less problems with mounting....
