Does the PMP450m lite in 5ghz have any advantages over the PMP450i with integrated 90 sector in a high noise environment? I have some very noisy sites that I was hoping the beam forming would steer around the noise in upstream at least.
Yeah, you still get the benefit of uplink beamsteering which can give you upto 8dBi RX gain over a traditional sector... you just don't get the MU-MIMO on the downlink and uplink. Seth Poche just wrote up an excellent KB article on using the 450m for just this reason.
Agree with Eric… this is a great reason to utilize 450m with cnMedusa technology. You can even try out MU-MIMO (extra capacity) for 30 days of runtime until you need to pay for that upgrade.
