Metal 9

    RBMetal9HPn is our first product for 900MHz frequency. With the same case as our Metal2 and Metal5 models, it's completely waterproof, rugged and high powered. RBMetal9HPn is equipped with RouterOS L4 license (AP, point-to-point or CPE).

    Metal9HPn is compatible only with another Metal9HPn, and available only with US type power plug. It will not work with any other 900MHz manufacturer product.

    Supported frequencies: 902-927MHz (Selectable center frequencies 907 to 922)

    1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
    2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
    3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
    4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
