We did some testing of the system in a real world scenario. Took the field node to the lookout and drove around town with the mobile node. While we did not get close to our expected speeds of at least 65Mbps, we did have a few places that reached 30Mbps, which is more than enough to make for a usable network if constructed correctly.
From the lookout to the fresh parking lot, the system held just under 32Mbps. With more nodes, this speed could be brought up. Live video at 1080p, however, was not an issue at all during testing. (The bigger problem was people going out of their way to be in the camera’s field of view…..even with a paper that says please don’t do this…people, read please.)
