Point-to-point Limit

Hi, we're planning to do a large outdoor project and will be need to do a couple of p2p shots. I'm wondering if I have one MR74 that's connected to my MX, can it simultaneously do 2 p2p shots to 2 other MR74s?

 

Thanks

Re: Point-to-point Limit

@DannyTaylorThe answer is yes, We can create a multi-point PTP connection. I am not sure how far these sites are but we have several different external antenna's. I typically recommend backhauling on 5ghz and not even using the 2.4. We have a great CVD on this exact design your looking into, i have provided the link below.

 

As @PhilipDAth mentioned we do mesh, the benefit of this is it  is built for resiliency not necessarily throughput. The APs will automatically connect with limited configuration on your part and dynamic fail over. The drawback is no matter what MCS rate your shooting for, your going to be capped around 200mbps in the most ideal setup (from my experience).

Kind of a big deal

Re: Point-to-point Limit

Meraki does not so much do point to point links, but instead uses MESH network - which suits your needs even better.

 

Have a look at this:
