  1. @Brandon Lege- Distance of Horns are based on many variables. No antenna has a fixed distance assigned to it. Noise, CPE used and acceptable modulation rate are just a few things to consider when answering your question. If you used a NB25 type CPE you can do 4Km to a 90deg Horn if you stayed in the -3db beam and maintain low to mid -60s for signal. If you tried your NB16 at 4Km you would be in the -70s. That same NB16 to a 60deg Horn will see something in the mid -60s. If you use the correct CPE for your particular Horn both 60s and 90s will work and in most cases achieve full good mod rates.
  2. @Brandon Lege- Based on the distances and CPEs you will use you don't need much down-tilt at all with a 60deg Horn for everyone to get great signals as long as its LOS. If you want to use down-tilt to limit exposure at the horizon I would suggest about 10deg to start but no more then 15deg to ensure your customers at 5km stay in the low -60s. With all that said, please consider these Horns are about 8-9db less gain overall then traditional sectors so by default you are limiting your horizon TX and RX capabilities. The math says 10-15deg down-tilt max, but I feel 5deg is all you need.
  3. @Brandon Lege- What CPEs are you using and what AP radio?
  4. @Clarence- That was a picture from over a year ago. Sorry
  5. @mistry7- We are looking at late Q2 for the UltraHorns and about 8 weeks for the UltraDish. We are working hard to meet that time frame.
  6. Its only been 6 months. We announced them for the first time in October at WISPApalooza. We will have it as soon as possible.
  7. We are trying @Burc. A quality product takes time and when its available it will be amazing...
  8. @Stephen_J- The AF5X adapter is still in the works. You will probably not see them any sooner then 6 weeks. If you need something now, then I suggest our Carrier Class Horn if you are Ok with a 30deg Horn.
  9. @JosephK- Thank you so much for reporting it. We want all feedback no matter what. Glad we got it sorted out...
  10. @aardvarkglory Thanks for the post. I will be happy to work with you on this. The biggest issue I see is getting signal into some of the valleys. You cant transmit through hills Distance is not an issue here. The longest link seems to be around 5 miles and 30deg Horns will do that easily. Even the 40, 50, 60deg Horns are spec'd at 5-6 miles. What we may need to play with a bit is the down tilt of the Horns. You should not need much as you are only about 1500 ft above most of the customers that I can see. Probably something like 3-4deg. I will send you a PM with my email so we can talk in more detail.
  11. @Stephen_J- PRISM adapters shipped last week to all US distributors. They should have stock this week. Microcom, Streakwave and ISP supplies have them..
  12. @wirelessrudy We understand your point of view. It's something we have considered and may be considered again in the future. For now, we have the Carrier Class Horns if the radio you want to migrate to is not supported by a TP adapter. I dont think your old TP adapter is a waste after that as you can re-deploy it elsewhere in your network...
  13. @dlaw, WOW, that looks AMAZING!!! With 12 AP's on a tower you must be reusing channels, Right? Please let us know and thanks for sharing...
  14. @dlaw, Thanks for posting and sorry for the problems. When building out new towers with horns it can be slightly challenging because of the sharp drop off on beam angle. What I would suggest is using 40deg horns or maybe 2x 30deg and 1x 40deg for your 90deg coverage area. 40deg horns only have about 2db less gain then the 30's so you will not notice a difference in your links. The extra 10deg of coverage would allow you to overlap a bit and close any dead zones between Horns. We are looking into ways to perhaps mark and angle or have a add on tool that will help visualize the coverage area. Please let us know if you try the 40's and how they work. We would love to see pictures of your install and if you could share your CPE type and distances of links with signal, that would be great!
  15. Step, They are planned for release late Q1 in 2017. Maybe late March 2017.
