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?

    Numbers like 150, 300 Mbps, etc. 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 (40 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, the 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), 80 Mbps with wide channels
    2 antennas 80 Mbps (OM2P-HS), 95 Mbps with wide channels
    5 GHz:
    2 antennas 160 Mbps (OM5P wireless*)

     

  • Which model should I choose?

    Each model is built for a different goal, so it's difficult to suggest which one is best for your particular use.

    If you're looking for the best overall performance on 2.4 GHz, select the OM2P-HS. This model also offers 802.3af PoE support, so you can use it with a standard PoE switch.

    If you would like to add 5 GHz support in your network, or you don't need to support 2.4 GHz devices, then select the OM5P. We typically recommend a mix of OM2P-HS and OM5P models to gain performance and still support legacy devices. These models operate in different bands, so they won't mesh, but users can connect to the same network through them.

    The OM2P works well when you don't need as much speed or you need to use an external antenna. This model supports passive 12-24v PoE.

    The OM2P-LC was designed for extremely cost-sensitive deployments. It has half the power of the other models and is a great choice for budget-conscious deployments. This model also supports passive 12-24v PoE.

  • 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. We don't. 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).

    Open-Mesh uses flat power in all models, which typically provides much higher power at high speeds compared to competitive models that may cost several times as much.
