News: Netonix range of intelligent PoE switches now in stock

We’ve recently received a delivery of Netonix switches. We thought we would blog about how amazing these things are, except one of our customers, Wessex Internet beat us to it!

If like those guys, you’re running your own WISP and need to power Ubiquiti or MikroTik radios, we have always advocated using batteries instead of a UPS as the site will stay up for longer when there is a mains failure. These switches make life much easier as they include within their range of products, PoE switches that can deliver 24v and 48V to radios from as little as a 9V DC supply!  We suggest your setup should consist of at least two leisure batteries wired in series, providing 24V or four batteries providing 48V.

HowTo: Building to Building PTP links using MikroTik Wireless Products

748_l

 

We are often asked how to make building to building or ‘point to point’ wireless links. As the MikroTik interface does not change between models this ‘How To’ can apply to any MikroTik Wireless based device. For this How To I will be using a pair of the new MikroTik SXT AC’s, to create a L2 transparent wireless bridge in a simple point to point mode (PtP).  This How To can also apply to point to multi point scenarios (PtMP). One SXT will be set up in ‘Bridge’ mode (effectively an AP) and the other as ‘Station Bridge’ (i.e. the ‘client’), to ensure best performance the link will be created and secured using the Mikrotik NV2 TDMA based protocol.
