SXT Lite5 ac

The SXT Lite5 ac is a new low cost device in our 802.11ac product lineup.

Unit is equipped with powerful 650MHz CPU, 64MB RAM, 10/100Mbps Ethernet port and has 5GHz 16dBi 28 degree beamwidth antenna.

The SXT Lite5 ac supports 256-QAM modulation and 80MHz channels, so you get more speed per same frequency width as 802.11 devices. It also supports 802.11a/n, Nv2, Nstreme mode and is compatible with all legacy RouterBOARD devices. New industrial wireless chip QCA-9892 provides support for 5/10 MHz channel width for 802.11an standard.

We have two versions available - RBSXT5HacD2n (International) and RBSXT5HacD2n-US (USA). RBSXT5HacD2n-US (USA) is factory locked for 2412-2462MHz, 5170-5250MHz and 5725-5835MHz frequencies. This lock can not be removed. RBSXT5HacD2n (International) supports 2412-2484MHz and 5150MHz - 5875MHz range.

  1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
  2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
  3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
  4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
