I’m just starting up a new WISP system. I’ve got over 40 years of experience with RF, mostly up to 900 Mhz, and about 17 years with VoIP and some basic networking. I have done a bit of work over the last 10 years or so with point-to-point systems at 5 Ghz, but not a lot.
I’ve used some MikroTik equipment for a few point-to-point systems lately and they work well for what we needed.
So, now I’m looking at what antennas to use for the A5C APs. We’ll be using the C5 CPEs. The price difference between the KP Performance and MTI Wireless sector antennas is considerable, so I lean towards MTI Wireless. But, I also see some differences in the design, construction, and specifications of the two antennas (I’m looking at the 65 deg models).
Can anyone give me an idea as to how these two antennas would compare in ‘on the air’ performance? Has anyone used both of them, to get a ‘real world’ idea about how they compare? Even from a theoretical standpoint, should one of them be any ‘better’ than the other in working with the A5C and C5 units?
