Twinwaves in NPPRO antennas
Undoubtedly, one of the best features for WISPs that NePoint's NPPRO antennas have are their double functionality that can be used with connectorized radios and twist-on solutions for Mimosa radios. This allows an easy infrastructure upgrade and backup.
In Ixtacamaxtitlán, a town in Puebla, Mexico, the combination of NPPRO antenna connectorized with the Twinwaves Adapter plus Ubiquiti Airfiber 5 XHD radio was used to build a backhaul link at a distance of 10 km. Although it is known that the NPPRO antenna is compatible with the C5X radio, it was decided to make a link with a connectorized radio like Ubiquity Airfiber 5xhd to utilize its dual functionality to work with a jumper. NPPRO has a quick installation and easy maintenance of its waveguide and antenna.
In this backhaul type installation, a signal level of less -33 dBm was obtained with modulations of up to 10X, in low power, as well as the capacity of 729/358 Mbps with a capacity of 1088 megabytes. This obtained a viability of 99.6% in a channel width of 80 MHz with a noise floor of less than -90 dBm.
