Hello, I am new to the link planner and I have a question about using 450 SM with Reflector Dish in 5GHz.
According to the document, SPECIFICATION SHEET: PMP 450 SUBSCRIBER MODULE / CN PMP 450 SUBSCRIBER MODULE 07222014
It looks to me that the Link Planner accounts for the reflector gain as 16 dBi for a total gain of 25 dBi.
Which is accurate?
Two more questions:
On the Radio tab of a 450 AP, the Tx Power is listed as Maximum of 19 dBm with (16 dBm H / 16 dBm V).
When calculating the expected signal strength of a multipoint link, should one use the 19 dBm value or the 16 dBm value?
We see about 2-3 dBm discrepency between the reported AP power level and the SM power levels, which power level should we consider as the most accurate?
