Some Mikrotik SXT photos and first thoughts.
I have been wanting to do some photos and thoughts on the Mikrotik SXTR-LTEs and other Mikrotik LTE products. I recently fired one up using dual sims. One is from Tmobile and one is from At&T. Verizon is pretty nonexistent in my area. I am about 2.5 miles away from a Tmobile tower and about a mile from a fiber-fed AT&T monopole.
As you notice in the following photo I am pretty buried in trees.
Some initial notes. Setup of LTE is a very easy process as far as the mikrotik is concerned. I literally had to put in some information in the APN and that was it as far as LTE goes. I did set up standard Mikrotik stuff (DHCP server, security, etc.).
Adding the second sim card can be a huge pain due to the location of the sim card slot. Luckily I had some tweezers that were angled to be able to slide the card in the slot. These were part of a dental kit I picked up off Amazon for releasing stuck SFPs and the like.
Look for a more in-depth series on Mikrotik LTE coming soon.j2networks family of sites
