OSBRiDGE 5GXt deployment, Case Scenario 2


The devices were deployed on a 6 kilometers distance. One of the devices is deployed on a 40 meters tall tower, the other one is deployed on the rooftop of a building, 3 meters above the roof. There actually is a line of sight between these two points but fresnel zone is severely obstructed, which seriously impacts performance in one direction - compared to the performance (H-Polarization) in the other direction.

Pictures of the installation on the rooftop, on second side of our link:

Here we can see this big fat builiding that is breaking our v-polarized fresnel zone

For testing purposes we have configured devices to operate using 40MHz channel widths.

Iperf was used to test the link throughput, first using TCP/IP:

As you can see the link was capable of running 44 Mbps real TCP/IP traffic in one direction and 56 Mbps real TCP/IP traffic in the other direction.

Here we can see first side effects of vertical polarization fresnel zone being obstructed. However we still were able to achieve 18/29 Mbps full duplex real TCP/IP traffic.

UDP throughput test was performed too:

Results: 55/23 Mbps full duplex UDP throughput. And again, performance of one of the polarizations is affected by obstructions on the path though the results are quite good.

Please note that all these tests are performed using uncompressable data, therefore they are pretty close to the real life traffic. This has nothing to do with so-called 'test' traffic which is highly compressable, may give better visual effects, but is hardly ever spotted in real-life deployment scenarios.
