I have a b24 link in trial. It’s not well aligned (the mounts are terrible!) but signal levels are unvaried after a few months of use. We have not experienced any rain fade.
We do experience a pretty frequent collapse of PHY 3 & 4, with 4 suffering most often. I’m taking stats once a minute using Telegraf + InfluxDB & visualising in Grafana as honestly I thought our problem would be rain fade. Anyway, we see this in the short term:
There’s no correlation between increased noise or rain events and the PHY collapses.
Over the longer term, we see this type of event as an orange dip in the PHY. Note how often this happens - below chart is a one-week timescale.
We’ve already shifted to a 50:50 traffic split but that hasn’t done much except increase latency across the link.
Any ideas? Maybe its interference & the noise charts just are not capturing it?
If there’s a new mount with better fine-alignment we can beta test (happy to pay) I’d love to because this one is as bad as circa-2006 Bridgewave brackets and I know there’s more dB in our budget I can claw back.
