We’re a small WISP new to the Epmp 3000 platform, currently testing it to transition away from Ubiquiti on some of our high-density towers. We’ve got one epmp 3000 AP using the 90 degree MU-MIMO sector antenna serving ten SMs with mostly quite good MCS rates. We’re using a 20mhz channel and 75/25 down/up ratio. Guard interval is set to short, max distance 8 miles.
However, I noticed today that we’re seeing high frame utilization (peak of 88%) despite relatively low throughput (max 55mbps or so). We had expected to achieve significantly more throughput than this before maxing out the AP, but it’s my understanding that high frame usage indicates the AP is nearing its max throughput. Is there something I’m missing here? Or perhaps some settings we need to tweak?
