IdentiFi point-to-point 5km


Userlevel 6
Hi, all!

We need 450Mbps in point-to-point with 5km distance with AP3865 or 3965.
Aslo it have to be 5GHz. (If it possible with 2,4GHz - tell me this too, please).

In documentation I saw that this distances possible.



But numbers is for 802.11n stadard.

May be this numbers higher for 802.11ac?
Or I have to use other antennas? (which one?)

Any ideas?

Thank you!

I do not believe you can do 5km on 450Mbps with official certified solution on 11n.
you should be able to get to the 240Mpbs link rate.

let me check 11ac

it will be very tough = 80Mhz channel and still "only" 390Mbps link rate

and please check if 3865 and the antenna are certified for your country. the estimator tool does not have this updated 😞

Hello, Pala!

1. For now outdoor AP's not certified.
But we have an projects, which can give us financial possibility and reason to certify this AP's.
2.
with 802.11n - 240Mbps
with 802.11ac Wave1 - 390Mbps
Can it be 450Mbps with 802.11ac Wave2 (AP3965)?

Thank you!

Hello, Jeremy!

It's cool that other vendors have such solution.
But we want to sold Extreme's solution )))

Thank you!

Extreme makes a great solution, however sometimes purpose-built hardware works better for these things. A.k.a. more visibility and easier to set up. You will also get better throughput and lower latency. I've even had sales people from extreme go on about how great the point the point solutions are. So I would choose extreme networks any day over Ubiquiti, but for the sole purpose, I would choose them.

P.S. they have solutions that do 1 + Gbps at 50+ km.
