[lime-users] Outdoor Equipment

Hello,

Continuing with this theme, it turns out that in the NuestraRED.org project
we need to purchase several new equipment to improve coverage.
For several years we have been working with Ubiquiti but with the recent
changes in these computers is almost impossible to install OpenWRT on
computers with firmware versions higher than 6.1.7 which is the one that
comes with the new equipment.
That's why we are looking at the possibility of buying MikroTik equipment
but we have never used those equipment and although I see that several are
supported on the list of OpenWRT I want to know if anyone has had
experience with these equipment and can recommend some of these equipment
to me to risk trying them.

The Mikrotik teams that I have seen that can be of use are the following:

MikroTik - RB912UAG-2HPND-OUT
Mikrotik LHG 5 Light Head Grid 5 GHz
MikroTik LHG XL HP5 Dual Chain Extra Large High Power 27dBi 5GHz CPE
MIKROTIK RB911G-5HPND-QRT Mikrotik QRT 5, RB911G-5HPnD-QRT 23dbi 5GHz
Wireless 802.11n
RBLDF-5nD-US

I have also reviewed the outdoor range of TP-LINK equipment, but in
Colombia you only get the new versions that are not 100% supported, I have
looked at this equipment
TP-Link CPE610 High Power Outdoor CPE/Access Point
Has anyone had any experience with him?

Also if someone has a guide, how to convert an indoor equipment Dual Band,
an outdoor equipment would be very helpful, on the Internet I have not
found anything, I remember that altermundi people had some guides based on
equipment wdr3600 and other TpLink but I can not find them.

I hope you can help us.

Thank you very much.
