I was able to sit down at WISPAMERICA and talk with Dmitry from Cambium about some of the misconceptions of using 3rd party antennas with ePMP 3000.
Cambium shows us some of the features and benefits of the 450 and MU – MIMO.

Some of you will get that reference.
Look for some lab tutorials coming soon. Some of these will be for Patreon only subscribers, and some will be public. Make sure to subscribe to Patreon on the linjk below.
One of the biggest tasks on a wireless AP is finding clean channels. Once you find those clean channels, making sure you stay on a clean channel is the next task. ePMP has a feature under tools called eDetect. One of the things this can do is give you an idea of how many devices are on a given frequency.
The ePMP AP you see above is on a 20mhz channel, which is why many home routers and other devices are showing up. If this was on a cleaner frequency it would look like the following.
While eDetect is not a replacement for spectrum analysis, it can give you a pretty good idea of what’s using a particular frequency. Please note, you see the most things on 20MHZ channels because that is what most home routers are set to.
