Recommended PtmP antenna and radio for Micro pop

Hi all,

Just as the subject line says.  The micro pop is for small rural community.. tress are a factor... tower is .5 miles from town well elevated above town as seen in link planner.  Furthest subscriber would be 2 miles away.  Looking at not needing anymore than 90degree coverge, probably would be safe at 60 degree coverage.  Just looking for some input/feedback.  Thanks!!

450m.

We've been doing a bunch of testing with 450m 3GHz for nNLOS shots. Our tests are finding that you can have around up to 6 large trees completely blocking the tower before you get disconnected. In many instances with non LOS and just a few trees in the way it worked very well, better then LTE.

Thank you for your replies!  I should of mentioned a smaller budget lol!  450m is a bit to pricey and want to stay in the unlicensed realm.  

Out of curiosity, how far out are your SMs from the 450m?

Cambium has a first timers deal for 450m 3GHz... it's the best pricing you'll ever see on this gear. 50% off AP's and SM's. I'd strongly urge you to take advantage of this, it's an incredible opportunity. Ask your RSM for details.

We did our nNLOS testing out to almost 8 miles.

Test site 1: 
1.79 miles away
257 degrees azimuth from the tower
-48 dBm, 8X MIMO-B, Linktest results 99Mbps/27.71Mbps
No los, shooting through 2-3 trees.
 
Test site 2:
1.74 mils away
257 degrees azimuth from the tower
-72.2 dBm, 4X MIMO-B, Linktest results 55.74Mbps/13.71Mbps
Complete no los, shooting through a two story building.
 
Test site 3: 
2.13 miles away
250 degrees azimuth from the tower
-69.2 dBm, 3X MIMO-A, Linktest results 41.90Mbps/10.28Mbps
No los, shooting through very heavy tree coverage
 
Test site 4:
1.75 miles away
303.82 degrees azimuth from the tower
-71.2 dBm, 2X MIMO-A, Linktest results 41.74Mbps/6.86Mbps
Clear los to tower but hitting side lobe of antenna
 
Test site 5:
1.38 miles away
272.5 degrees azimuth from the tower
-59.2 dBm, 6X MIMO-B, Linktest results 106.03Mbps/20.78Mbps
No los, Heavy trees blocking los.
 
Test site 6:
4.98 miles away
252.19 degrees azimuth from the tower
-69.2 dBm dBm, 4X MIMO-B, Linktest results 55.72Mbps/13.51Mbps
No los, shooting through multiple trees with good amount of leaves
 
Test site 7:
7.07 miles away
256.47 degrees azimuth from the tower
-63.5 dBm, 6X MIMO-B, Linktest results 111.05Mbps/20.51Mbps
Marginal los, shooting through a gap in between two trees.
 
Test site 8:
0.55 Miles away
229.93 degrees azimuth from the tower
-68.2 dBm, 6X MIMO-B, Linktest results 58.76Mbps/12.74mbps
Clear los to the tower proper, but in it's current mount on site it's shooting through trees up near the tower.

That is impressive!  So the deal from Cambium is for first timers using 3GHz?

First time to use 450m 3GHz. Talk to your RSM for details.
