ePMP 1000 Integrated Radio - Near LOS - 2.4GHz or 5GHz best?

I’m planning to setup link using ePMP 1000 Integrated Radio.

Distance 1Km
Elevation 5m
Near LOS Condition (1 tree and house in the path)
Bandwidth requirement minimum 20mbps Down & 10mbps Up

Just wondering 2.4GHz or 5GHz best suits my requirement?
As this is a residential area there will be some 2.4GHz wifi interference from the houses around.

As you mentioned, 2.4 GHz in general is much noisier than 5 GHz. Also the 2.4 GHz band is very small relative to the 5 GHz band and you will have a better chance of finding a clean channel in 5 GHz. ePMP supports the entire 5 GHz band (5.1 - 5.9 but with restrictions based on regulation in each country). 2.4 GHz will theoretically perform better than 5 GHz in nLOS conditions but noise is a bigger factor and that should be your primary concern. Hence the recommendation to try 5 GHz first.

tengo un requerimiento parecido a nuestro compañero....la distancia es de 1km y necesito de 5ghz...este radio ePMP integrated radio es la referencia indicada para este requerimiento?


El radio integrado de 5GHz debe poder cubrir la distancia de 1km en condiciones con linea de vision sin obstrucciones. El rendimiento del enlace puede variar dependiendo de factores como  el nivel de interferencia en la localidad y el canal de operacion escogido. Para tener una mejor idea, le recomiendo intentar nuestro LINK Planner (http://www.cambiumnetworks.com/products/planning-tools/link-planner), que incluye simulaciones para la serie de radios ePMP y el ePMP Link Capacity Planner Calculator (https://support.cambiumnetworks.com/files/epmp/), ambas herramientas disponibles sin costo.
