Has anyone seen this issue, and more importantly found a cause/solution?
SNR (uplink) bounces between 2 values giving a sawtooth effect.
In this case it is a 450m and a 450B-LR but I see it on all combinations. This is affecting sumbunall SMs on the AP. It seems to be transitory and in one case was due to 2 visible AP with same Color Code but this SM only sees 1 viable AP (2 others <-80) and no Color Code overlap.
In 450, the SNR is an estimation using the modulation of the link and measuring the data transmitted. It needs data moving (and enough data) for accurate measurements. It is possible the modulation is moving between two values here, which will immediately move the SNR.
I recommend moving to EVM, which was added in 16.1 and a better statistic for measuring the quality of the link.
As an update to what I was seeing with Sawtooth like appearance of SnR graphs…
After concluding this had to be un-timed interference, I found that a local fishing resort had set up a small 900Mhz Point-to-Multipoint backhaul for Wifi access-points around their very rural property. They were approximately 1 KM from our tower, and were using Ubiquiti 900Mhz (airmax???) AP, and multiple Nano-stations.
Once we assisted them with replacing this equipment with something suitable, we were able to turn off the Ubiquijunk and the Interference immediately cleared up. Our RF performance, as seen on stable SnR graphs, is 100% better. No more sawtoothing.
Just thought it would be worth updating in case anyone else has seen this.
