Frequently asked questions

  • Routers are typically rated at 150 Mbps, 300 Mbps, etc. What can I really expect and how does the number of antennas affect speed?

    These are the theoretical maximum speeds the access point can deliver, including all Wi-Fi overhead, in a perfect environment. As a rough rule of thumb, these numbers are at least twice what you can expect in a real-world environment. Furthermore, it is generally not “good neighbour” practice to use wide (80 MHz) channels on 2.4 GHz as it this uses at least two of the three available channels and interference would likely prevent it from working well. Therefore, 2.4 GHz maximum is typically half that again.

    Here is a table of maximum real-world speeds you can expect on our (or any) 802.11n devices:

    2.4 GHz:
    1 antenna 40 Mbps (OM2P, OM2P-LC)
    2 antennas 80 Mbps (OM2P-HS)

     

  • Where should I use the OM2P high power/external antenna model?

    All Open-Mesh models (except the original OM2P) use custom optimized power amplifiers to boost power at higher speeds without boosting power at slower speeds. This “flat power” reduces noise in the network and helps shift clients to faster connections that consume less bandwidth—exactly what you want indoors where you are deploying several access points to support a large number of users.

    The original OM2P will produce higher “maximum” power, but primarily only at slower speeds. This is desirable in low density deployments where you want range over speed and need to connect clients no matter how slowly. An example of the use case for the original OM2P is an outdoor deployment where you have a smaller number of clients over a larger area to connect.

    We highly recommend using the “optimized power” models in dense areas such as hotels, schools, airports, etc where you deploy multiple access points to serve a high number of users and need the fastest speeds.

  • How does Open-Mesh compute power?

    There is no industry-wide standard for reporting power. Many companies will use the most favorable method of reporting power to make their devices look best versus competitors. Open-Mesh does not do this. Our power ratings are always per antenna (not combined), average (not peak) and do NOT include the antenna power “gain” (really not gain, but focus in certain directions at the expense of others).

    Note that Open-Mesh “flat power” models typically provide much higher power at high speeds compared to competitive models that may cost several times as much.
