We had 950 MHz equipment and moved sites. Since the only thing available there at the time was 768kbps DSL, we decided to avoid paying the phone company for crappy service and bought a Moseley LanLink system. Basically a diplexing filter and a 1 Mbps radio (the radio is half duplex). I saw an article somewhere about upgrading such a system using the Ubiquiti radios. I got a couple of used Loco M900's on eBay and some RP-SMA to N cables. Powered off and disconnected the LanLink radios, connected the Ubiquitis to the 900 MHz side of the filter, and powered them up.Lee_Wheeler wrote: ↑Mon Feb 27, 2017 6:43 pmI am fascinated by this as well. How did you go about getting the Ubiquiti radios to work without cross polarization? I thought the way Ubiquiti did duplex was to send and receive on the same frequency but on the other polarity (ie: TX-Horizontal, RX-Vertical).
I would love to buy some cheap Ubiquiti 900 MHz stuff to back up my 3.6 GHz radios for data.
On the M900s you have to set them to 1x1 mode using the external antenna connector only. They will run half-duplex so there's no cross-pol to worry about. If you want full duplex you need to get something fancier like the AirFiber series.
Since this was installed, another tenant came to the site and used his connections inside the cable company to get them to run high speed internet. However, we decided we'd rather just stick with this and save the $60 a month or whatever they charge for "business" internet.
