Creating two PTP links on one Radio - AP175

Is it possible to create multiple PTP links on one Radio of Outdoor AP-175 using directional antennas? If yes, what is the impact of this design on the performance of the access point.

this is not possible with AP-175.  Each radio in on a separate band, and only one radio can be meshed.

 

MeshOS does support this, using separate channels on each radio to avoid any performance penalty.

I do not understand. Cant we create two PTP links on the same channel in different directions using directional antennas?

No.   The radios in AP-175 cannot be on the same frequency band.  One is fixed to 2.4GHz and the other to 5GHz.

 

If you need to go 2 different directions then you must use an omni antenna, which will reduce your overall range.
