I bought my first kit ptp mimosa, B5 Lite version, I was very excited when I saw the throughput above 500mb in both TCP and UDP.
But I noticed something that has taken away the tranquility, the antenna that is in Station mode always has a temperature above the one in AccessPoint mode (As you can see in the print).
I also put in this print, the temperature of my city, but this only to avoid future speculations, I did a test with this kit before putting them into production and also presented the same discrepancy of each other, both of which were indoors with a distance of less than 50m.
During this test, I changed the shielded CAT6 Hercules cable to other ones with the same specifications, but I did not get any changes, but when I removed the PoE source and put it back in the socket a few times, they got the same temperature as expected, importance to this, I considered that it being in Station mode, would be doing some kind of “improvement” of the link and after that, it would normalize.
But after putting them into production for 2 days, I did this little test passing 200mb TCP to see that it goes from 100º, and in the specifications says:
(Operating Temperature -40 ° C to + 55 ° C (-40 ° F to 131 ° F)).
The reason to open this topic is because I believe that so my Station will lose its useful life as well as its power / sensitivity and even processing capacity, we know that the lower the temperature the faster the processor works and thus, I will have more band and less latency.
No more is this, I hope someone can give me some clarification, thank you!
