MikroTik RouterBOARD RBLDF-5nD
LDF 5 Antenna 5GHz 9dBi Integrated (International Version)
The LDF (Lite dish feed) is an outdoor wireless system with a built in antenna, meant to be installed on satellite offset dish antennas. The dish will act as a reflector, amplifying the signal.
This means you can use any available satellite TV dish with an offset mount to quickly deploy powerful long range wireless links. The offset mount is universal at 40mm diameter, and the LDF can easily be placed inside it. Since the LDF itself is a tiny little package, it makes shipping and deployment simple and low cost.
Using a dish of up to 100cm in diameter, it is possible to obtain antenna amplification of up to 30dBi. The device comes preinstalled with RouterOS and is ready to use.
