Mimosa Wireless Traffic Shaping



  • Got some Mimosa C5x radios up servicing a rural region with around thirty customers on a radio. Signal seems really good and clean, and no different than normal. Some customers are doing fine. Some are having massive drop offs in performance, like dropping from a PHY throughput of 720Mb/s to 7Mb/s! But the DBs seem to stay solid and the signal is clean and the CPU is low utilitzation. Everything seems good. It's jumping all over but we can't see any interference.

    We are wondering if traffic shaping rules might be messing with things in some way. Mimosa doesn't seem to document their traffic shaping behaviour in any way at all. We aren't sure exactly how it behaves. Does it block off bandwidth? Does it just prioritize? Anyone have any experience or know?
