Probably because B28 is the lower band with widest adoption globally? Originally it's APAC band, in Europe a sub-band is used, akso used in Americas. The rest of noted bands are limited to use in one of ITU regions ... Additionally B28 is latest addition to MT's LTE portfolio (not counting 3rd party modems which happen to be compatible/supported).... wonder why the marketing folks just mentions band 28 ...
The largest ISP in canada has 1.5 probably soon 2.5 out on fibre.For the love of... why would anyone sabotage any product with just one single 2.5Gb port...
just one single 2.5Gb port...
Yes, I think one 5009 with 2x 10GiB would be really good. No, it doesn't have to be able to route 2x 10Gb + the others ports. But imagine if we could use it to effectively route one 5Gbps connection...Me, I wanted an SFP+ port for the same reason. Overkill, but then you could have fiber back to the core, 2.5G to the WAN, and no congestion for the 1G ports back to the core. Apparently we’ll have to wait for the ax version of the 5009 to get that.

Looks like rather poor gain for lower bands on the ATL.
Hi Normis, thanks for the info, any timeline on capsman ax3 testing and release (roughly).1) white USB port due to 3D render mistake, actual product has a blue port
2) well yes, more AX products are coming, but we need to make AX compatible CAPsMAN first
3) No mistake, the hAP ax2 is clocked lower than hAP ax3, due to better cooling in the larger case of hAP ax3
That rules out the ATL for me, which looked very promising at first having seen the video earlier. I currently have the Chateau 5G with external LPDA antennas (rewired to modem ports 0+1) and it performs roughly 10dB better on the 800MHz band 20 than the LHG LTE I have when tested on same outdoor pole as the antennas. The LHG on the other hand performs about 3dB better on bands 1 (2100MHz) and 3 (1800MHz).The following quote is pretty contradictory in particular if you pay attention to that the ATL low band antenna gains at those frequencies are below or equal to zero:
@Rox169 There are A LOT of MikroTik CAPsMAN networks globally, I can't imagine why you would imagine " Big companies do not use MT for wireless anyway", it's simply not true.
CAPsMAN for AX products is in internal testing. Beta should be available fairly soon.
Fixed your definition, as it gave the wrong impression!.Most likely this definition:
(1) slang: to call someone out for their idiocy/stupidity and failings especially when they think they are arrogantly the kings breakfast etc. To bring people down to earth to reality.
Hi bpwl, I want the facts to be plainly visible on product specs and literature it should note take the resident wifi genius to spend years of research to ascertain the truth! ;-)MU-MIMO is already in wifiwave2 for the hAP ac3. At least that is what I think to be seeing in the beacon sent out by wifiwave2.
I too want one of these without the R11mL-EG18-EA modem. I need to put in a Verizon compatible modem in it.Anyone know if the ATL's modem is replaceable? And/or if an "ATL R" model will be released?
Love the MIMO-ness of the ATL...but the LTE18 band plan looks pretty poor for the US/NA (e.g. no B12 and its ilk).
Then there is hope for the future.Current help page reflects current features supported. If you look at old wiki page, which shows state of art in ROS v6, you can see that VLANs are not supported on MT7621 and RTL8367 ... which both got HW offload support for VLANs in early v7 versions. Meaning that IPQ-PPE can still get HW VLAN support in future ROS versions.
Now there is a dilemma with new ASL. I live 1.5km from LTE-A tower. Now I own indoor Mikrotik LTE18 router with EG18-EA modem (support 2x2 MIMO) + 10m cable + single Iskra P-42 antenna(9.5dbi @ 1800/2600Mhz). RSSI around -60db, SINR around 18-22db. Now the options to FULLY utilise the network and squeeze the max, interested only in mid bands:
1. Invest in second P-42 antenna and put both in 45/135degree configuration. It brings 2x2 MIMO, gain 9.5dbi minus 10m cable loss.
2. Invest in Mikrotik LHG dish, still 2x2 MIMO but higher gain (15dbi @ 1800Mhz, 17dbi @ 2600Mhz), no cable loss.
3. Invest in Mikrotik ASL, more compact, 4x4 MIMO, but gain is lower than LHG (2x antennas 11-12dbi @1800/2600Mhz, 2x antennas 8-9dbi @ 1800/2600Mhz), no cable loss.
Rural area, no buildings around, just forest between me and cell tower.
Option 1 would be the solid choice and the cheapest.
ASL, 4x4, lower gain vs LHG, 2x2, higher gain. First world problems...
Does actual 2.5Gbps work with PoE? I ask, because someone told me that using PoE (in the same cable as data) causes actual speed to be limited to 1.25Gbps. Are there any bandwidth tests for this NIC with PoE on the same cable?hAP ax³ (2.5G Ethernet & USB!)
There is hAP ax lite (L41G-2axD) now with IPQ-5010 (dual core ARM64). That could be a good match for mAP ax as well...... and POE output / throughput on another port. That is what I miss with current hAP ax². I hope for an upgraded mAP ax for this...
