Maybe someone has had a similar problem. I have (2) AV8185 cameras and a 2DF8223 camera on a pole. Etherwan switch. Link is 500' to another pole. Other radio set goes from there to college campus fiber (1000'). Signal levels -50s with no noise. Frequencies 5.8 band 40 Mhz channels, no overlap. Cameras end up on Exacqvison Virtual.
I also have, from same campus fiber spot, radio link to pole (two 2CD4332), link from there to pole (two 2CD4332), multipoint from there to another pole (two 2CD4332), and other multipoint (two Darkfighter fixed). Links are also clear line of site, 5.3/5.8, -40--50s signal level, no frequency overlap. Quite a load (would use Nanobeam nowadays).
Now the problem. All Hikvision cameras on these dual radio setups stream all frames through the campus fiber network. The arecont cameras, however, have broken frames, or go offline quite a bit. I have put in hundreds of wireless applications (in the past, several Areconts on Tranzeo radio solutions). The only thing I can think of is that a) campus network blocks arecont packet/frame structure or b) the Ubiquiti radios have trouble passing the packet/frames of the areconts. Possibly Airmax protocol or other settings. (Even though the PTZ camera on the Arecont links passes frames, it is sluggish, unless you disable the Arecont cameras).
If anybody has had similar problems or can possible shed some light on this, I would appreciate it.
