  1. In nearly all cases, a short range PtP link this will have about the same added latency as if you added a few switches between your computer and router - meaning just one or two milliseconds. You shouldn’t notice it being there at all. Most of the latency in regular wireless is from devices having to take turns talking to/from the router and with other devices using the same channel with other networks. On the 60GHz radio there will be no congestion, and the 5GHz should see almost no congestion because it is a highly directional signal with just two devices. Rain may cause the 60GH
  2. I recommend these devices as options for your situation (in order from best choice to ok-ish choice): 2x Ubiquiti GBE-Plus aka "airMAX GigaBeam Plus 60 GHz Radio" ($179 USD each, $358 USD total) 2x Ubiquiti GBE aka "airMAX GigaBeam 60 GHz Radio" ($129 USD Each, $258 USD total) 1x Mikrotik CubeG-5ac60adpair aka "Wireless Wire Cube" ($248 USD for a pair) 1x Ubiquiti UBB aka "Unifi Building-to-Building Bridge" ($499 USD for a pair) These are all 60GHz point-to-point short-range options that would give you around 1Gbps in both directions (2Gbps half-duplex), however
  3. If you're going to spend any money at all, look at ITPro.tv - $500/year or $50/month includes all you can watch video series, which have all been excellent (gone through Network+, Security+, and CCNA with them), full labs that you perform on actual hardware (the lab backend is ridiculous to dig into), and practice tests.
  4. Not sure how things are in your country but in the USA each cable is just individually buried without a tunnel/conduit, except in the middle of urban areas. A more general answer to your question: Fiber networks are really split into two categories, direct fiber connections and PON. Direct fiber connections require more expensive electronics but can achieve higher speeds, and are used for businesses, or for an apartment building you might have one fiber connection split up by a router that feeds the apartments. PON (Passive Optical Network) is more similar to a DOCSIS (Coax/“C
  5. That part is wrong. The official spec sheet says “Delivers up to 90W per port on 4 PoH 802.3bt ready ports.” The CommScope website is full of bad data. Always look at the PDFs.
  6. All of the Ruckus ICX “ZP” switches have 90W ports: 7150-C10ZP 7150-48ZP 7550-24ZP 7550-48ZP 7650-48ZP The 7150-48ZP has been showing up on eBay for around $500 because the sellers get them confused with the 7150-48P which is a very different product.
  7. All the video streaming services use either HTTPS or QUIC, both of which have the content encrypted differently for each client and thus unable to be cached by a network device in the middle. For large complexes (thousands of apartments) they can apply to have a Netflix server placed directly onto their network: https://openconnect.netflix.com/en/ “For offload efficiency and system scale, we require a minimum of 5 Gbps of peak Netflix traffic per deployment site”
  8. SyncThing is essentially the open source version of Resilio Sync.
  9. That's a nice service flow diagram, but this thread is more about the physical and internetworking side. Router, switch(es), AP(s), where the ISP and server connect into; is it all 1Gb? Any 10Gb? Using any non-ethernet connection methods (powerline, MoCA)?
  10. You’ll want to surge protect both ends (and the surge protectors must be grounded). A common good model is the Ubiquiti ETH-SP-G2. There are two types of outdoor cable - direct burial and outdoors. Direct burial is meant to be buried and is not particularly UV resistant. Outdoor cables are UV Resistant but not tough. You can find some that are both Direct Burial and UV Resistant
  11. There are 8 wires in an ethernet cable, in 4 pairs. Each pair is twisted together at different turn rates. The spec then expects those 4 cables to be in a round bundle, and some Cat6 and all Cat6A and above have a plastic guide inside the wire to keep them evenly spaced (it is cross shaped). My point is, the specification expects a round cable, and was very specifically designed to reject RF noise. For long runs, unless you need flatness to fit somewhere (going under a carpet/rug is the only option, for example) you should use round cables.
  12. As long as you have different public IPs with each ISP (as long as you don’t have a public subnet of /24 or larger that you can use through both ISPs at the same time via BGP) then ECMP has the negative effect that any time the routing table changes, which will happen at least every 10 minutes, there is a chance connections will swap ISPs and thus die. The better method for this is PCC: https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/Firewall+Marking#FirewallMarking-Example3(PCC) because the assignment of connections to one ISP or the other is based on hash, not on chance.
  13. You won’t be able to use ECMP to split a single tunnel over multiple ISPs because the public IP is different on each ISP. Half your packets would have one source IP and half your packets the other. The tunnel wouldn’t even get through the connection process. To use both ISPs, you would need at least two VPN connections, do some configuration (route marking) to pin one to each ISP, and then configure your torrent and other software to make connections using both, if they have such options. Product/services which allow you to “combine” multiple ISPs work by making one tun
  14. You can try this (at your own risk, I haven’t tested this, make sure to have a backup): https://community.ui.com/questions/How-to-recover-access-to-a-unifi-controller-when-the-admin-password-has-been-lost-/bea32e54-c8cd-4d08-ba98-b836acebfeb4
  15. To be clear, is this AP square shaped? If it is, then 5.6.x is your only option - that has been removed from the controllers since then.
