I have a Balance One Core router and would like to add 2 LTE connections on WAN ports.
I live In a quite rural region, and have tested LTE with IOS devices. Get 27 up / 12 down and 12 up / 10 down with two different providers, which is not that exessively good but far more than my cable connection.
The LTE devices will be mounted on top of my roof. First of all, the distance between my roof and the position of my router is about 25 meters, too much for antenna cables - high loss. But fortunately I have 2 CAT6 cables from my router to my roof…
What unsettles me: is it better to use 2 MAX BR1 IP55, or use an IP66 - 68 case to house 2 MAX BR1 Slim and have 2 external MIMO antennas? (HD2 IP67 is no option)
What do think, is it better to use the same LTE provider in both devices, or use two different providers?
Thank you very much in advance!
