Enterprise Wireless in the Age of Tablets and Smartphones


  1. Hi Rory,

    You speak about the A5’s cpu utilisation. Where do you see that? We don’t seem to be able to see.

    We are trying to migrate 30-40 Mikrotik SXT’s to the A5 but run into several issues:
    We have also 2 x C5’s setup to the same AP (A5).
    So far we could not get higher then some 80Mbps max. sustained throughput (download) towards the clients (4 clients running a tcp bandwidth test) Any more load on the AP starves the downloads on the running SXT. Each SXT has 25mb limited. With three we reach 70-75, with 4 we reach 80, with 5 nothing more….
    All CPE’s within 300meter range and all 802.11n (except for those C5’s) and channel width set to 40Mhz.
    Any ideas? We are looking to offer 50Mbps that should be able to be reached by at least 3 or 4 simultáneos running clients while some other light traffic is around. So far not even getting near.
    Or do we really have to invest in 35 C5’s? And what if that ain’t working?
