In this setup we will be connecting a PTP configuration using a Dual Setup and OSPF (Open Shortest Path First).
The requirements for this set up is to have a board that supports at least 02 radios.

The advantages for this setup are:

  • Double the maximum throuput with Full Duplex
  • Automatic Failover
  • No delay of packets. The same set up utilizing N-Streme-Dual can cause delay, which can be a problem if you're dealing with VoIP or applications that requires maximum response.
  • This set up can make use of two radios at each end, so the availability becomes even more robust in case of a radio failure.

Configuring the Radio A:

/ip address add address=192.168.0.1/24 interface=ether1
/ip address add address=192.168.10.1/24 interface=wlan1
/ip address add address=192.168.20.1/24 interface=wlan2
/routing ospf network add network=192.168.10.0/24 area=backbone1
/routing ospf network add network=192.168.20.0/24 area=backbone1
/routing ospf interface add interface=wlan1 cost=100

Configuring the Radio B:

/ip address add address=192.168.0.2/24 interface=ether1
/ip address add address=192.168.10.2/24 interface=wlan1
/ip address add address=192.168.20.2/24 interface=wlan2
/routing ospf network add network=192.168.10.0/24 area=backbone1
/routing ospf network add network=192.168.20.0/24 area=backbone1
/routing ospf interface add interface=wlan2 cost=100

This set will cause the incoming traffic to use wlan1 on 'A' and wlan2 on 'B'.
This also will use any available path to get to the other side (Failover with OSPF).
