  1. Hello, the stickers on boxes were part of a promo that is long gone unfortunately, but I will shoot you a message and let's see what can we do

    Throughput

    Users of RF radios in wireless networks often mix a few terms, such as throughput. Out of total data stream passing the propagation channels, only a portion is going to be the user data. In this Inside Wireless episode we explain the difference between throughput and physical rate. Be careful though, the throughput your link can achieve is the maximum possible. Link budget equation tells you how big of a throughput you can actually achieve - https://youtu.be/FmhfBYcJeVo When sending a physical letter to someone, besides the letter itself, there is also an additional information - such as addre

  7. Hello, so far we don't have a custom adaptor for ePMP Force 400c - to use it with horns / Twistport products, use TPA-SMA.

    Growing a WISP network can be challenging especially in 5 GHz unlicensed frequency band because of strong noise or self-interference. RF elements Horn Sector Antenna technology lets you grow indefinitely.. how? Join our webinar to find out!

  10. Hi Andrea, thanks for the effort! What we'd need though are the sensitivity data to each of the CPE radios. Some, like AF5X or LUT rocket have those in the datasheets but other than that, they do not
  11. If you use Google Network Planner, you can download the radiation patterns of our antennas in a suitable format and plan your network coverage with RF elements horns! DOWNLOAD HERE: GNP radiation patterns
  12. Aim the horn up a hill.. that is rather nonstandard indeed.. If you have any more questions please let us know!
  13. Hello, horns help to minimize interference - they decrease the noise floor, and increase SNR as a result of that. The number of clients you can connect to it depends on the radio you use for the most part. You can figure out how far you can reach with horns using our link calculator - https://rfelements.com/calc/ - where you can setup all the details of the AP radio and CPE as well.
  14. Hello, no, the CPE radio is the client device - you have the option to choose LTU Rocket or AirFiber 5xHD as a CPE for the PTP links. With the AP radio, you only setup the output power and antenna gain, there is no choosing a particular radio..

    Deal with the RF noise using our Horn Sector antenna technology. This event will be introduced by RF elements and is co-hosted with SICE Telecom, our Italian partner who will present the topic in Italian language. REGISTER HERE: http://bit.ly/2NtNBab
  16. Hello, sorry about that, the adaptor is still available, it is TPA-PAF The same adaptor is compatible with all these UBNT radios: airFiber 5X, airFiber 5XHD, Rocket Prism 5AC, and Rocket Prism 5AC Gen2. You can find handy adaptor compatibility sheet suitable for print HERE
  17. Hi Sergio, You can use TwinHorn Bracket mounted Horns in both modes. The differences are following: 1. MU sector with angle diversity - based on the general theory of MU MIMO with array of antennas, they can be spaced horizontally as well. The resulting performance depends on how the radio operates. We have no detailed documentation to ePMP 3000 so we cannot comment on the results you should be seeing. 2. Split sector - this one is easy to understand and safer, you cannot go wrong with this mode. If you feel like experimenting, my advice would be to test both modes for a pe

    MCS rates

    Wireless radios use MCS rates to express a few pieces of information: the QAM modulation depth, number of spatial channels, coding rate. What do these mean? Check out our IW episode for details! But, the real throughput you are likely to see in a radio online interface is most likely just approaching this maximum limit. Multipath propagation, changing weather conditions, interference, physical obstructions, and antenna alignment mismatch are other factors influencing the actual throughput. In the end, you have to understand that the throughput you see depends on many factors and it shoul
  23. How the performance will be influenced depends on the material and thickness of the flat radome. If you tell us what material and thickness you want to use and the application you use it for, we can do a quick simulation for you..
  24. It is rounded for optimal RF performance, but the primary purpose of the radome is to protect the inside of the antenna from weather and birds nesting inside. The rounded radome is the only one we have and we do not plan to make flat ones.
  25. Hello Ewa, thanks for reaching out, what kind of unconventional usage you have in mind?
