I am finalizing my first wireless network for deployment. Here is my layout: (I was not able to paste a drawing here)
Link 1 (A) to Link 2 (B) using C5c with 30 dbl antenna, 18.7 mile link with clear LOS.
Link 2(B) to Link3 © using C5c with 30 dbl antenna, 8 mile link, clear LOS.
Link 2(B) to Link 4 (D) using C5c with 30 dbl antenna, 6 mile link, clear LOS
Link 2(B) to Link 5 (E) using C5c with 30 dbl antenna, 4 mile link, clear LOS
Here are my concerns:
- How would I connect Link B to transmit received signal from A to links C, D, and E?
- Would you recommend using an A5c at link B? Again, how to connect to make signal pass through to rest of network?
- With the shorter distance, would a sector antenna work? (or multiple sectors for Link B to C,D, and E)
I am trying to set the initial network to minimize changes to the hardware within the first year. My team and I have been going in circles about Link 2 (B) bottlenecking the network without proper planning for signal transmission. This will be our first Wireless network for a small community of 880. We want to make a good impression out the gate since larger telecommunication companies do not want to provide needed service to this area. Thanks in advance for everyone’s input.
