F4600Cs are limited to 1 SM in TDD mode.
If you received force4600C instead of epmp4600L please open the support ticket and we will provide the replacement asap.
I’m really sorry for the inconveniences caused.
Sorry, we have kind of two cross thoughts here. My bad.
Yes, clearly if your boxes and products are labeled as AP, and you actually got an SM, then yes clearly that’s a mistake somewhere along the line. I’m sure Cambium will do well on that for you.
Separately from that, one of the core features of the EPMP line was always that any SM could be used as a non-GPS (unsynced) AP. The 1000 series and the 2000 series any SM could be used as a micropop AP. That was a key advertised feature of the EPMP line, differentiating it from previous Canopy and Cambium generation of radios.
When the 3000 came along, suddenly they reneged on that, and the 300 SMs were suddenly limited in firmware to 1 SM association when configured in AP mode. After much backlash, Cambium moved this limitation up to 12 SM association for 300 series SMs in AP mode. That was an OK compromise.
Now it appears with the 4000/400 series, it appears that they’re once again reneging on that, and once again limiting SM’s in unsynced AP mode to just 1 association.
So, sorry if I was confusing issue. I was Just replying to Eric that I didn’t think the SM having a limitation of 1 SM was any sort of error or oversight, it is a deliberate choice by Cambium. That of course is totally separate issue from a shipping order packaging or labeling kerfuffle, that I’m sure they will rectify ASAP. My bad, my apologies. My reply was to Eric’s comment
Funny story, working with another operator moving from Mimosa 6GHz to e4k and they’re playing around with e4k’s WiFi mode to aid in their transition. They get better performance between Mimosa and e4k using WiFi mode then they did when using just Mimosa
Great to hear that Cambium took care of you on this. Keep us posted on your deployment!
