I have SYNC and SESSION traps set up on the AP unit this SM is Synched to. We had really bad weather, and I got about 20 traps of a resynch.

Am I getting rain fade even with the reflector? Any other way to see if this is having or going to have a detrimental effect on the clients performance, without advertising that their might eb a problem? (Sensative customer we have had many issues with)

Any Comments are welcome.


We had a SM that perfromed similarly to the one you described…similar RSSI and Jitter.

The RF path was thorugh the top of a tree and each time it rained the extra water on the leaves caused the link to degrade.

We solved the problem by adding a reflector.

At another site we had to change the Freq…due to interference.

Hope this helps!
