MikroTik’s SXT 5 ac hardware is used in a radio link in Nuremberg, which is still under construction. The goal should therefore be a connection over approx. 700 m with a bandwidth of over 200 Mbit / s.
In the city center of Haßfurt only NanoStations Loco M2 are operated in the 2.4 GHz band. All Ubiquiti devices have been provided with the Freifunk Franken firmware. Thus, the routers only have to be supplied with power via PoE because they are connected to each other via mesh. Thanks to the adapted firmware, access point and mesh scenarios can be set up at the same time, so that the routers not only build a wireless bridge to other routers, but also serve many clients at the same time. So far, this structure has proven itself and up to 50 clients can be served per access point. All clients share the bandwidth; Website calls and various messengers are still stable and easy to use.
