Hi I'm thinking about running a network bridge between my house and my friends house.  The direct distance is 2km and we have line of sight.  We both have fibre internet. The goal would be to have a single large network attached storage PC accessible by both homes.  Currently we run two separate large media NAS. ~80TB Would save money on power and duplication. I currently use a unifi USG gateway and a unifi switch / unifi Wifi AP.  The Storage PC has 2 network interfaces, and is running ubuntu 18.02 lts server with docker and samba share in a docker. Just wondering what would be the best way to go about doing this. Would we use nanobeam or powerbeam? What is the best way to "bridge" the networks for network attached storage?  I would prefer to keep the networks relatively separate apart from the network storage.

VPN over the existing fibre might be easier.

Actually the height of the dish needs to be 11-15m from ground level, I wonder if you are allowed to have something that high?  The house is 2 story.

 

 

 

This is simulation with dish at 15m from ground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is simulation at a height of 11m.  You can see it still gives 100% but the beam is partially obstructed.

Does anyone know what the rules are regarding antenna / dish height, I'm thinking >12m might require resource consent?

I'd do this. Cheaper too!

Depends where you are. Where I am, I believe the rule was a maximum of 2m over the height of the permitted building height in the zone. E.g. I could go up to 10m from the ground because the zone permitted a building height of 8m.

Broklyn max building height is 12m, so maybe you can go to 14m.

 

 

 

I think the actual 14m pole might be cost and aesthetic prohibitive.

Yea if you already have the USG, then VPN makes a lot more sense.

 

I don't know much in terms of what throughput the USG can do over IPsec, but if its rubbish then just get a pair of Mikrotik RB4011's and you will have no issue pumping a couple hundred Mbps across the VPN.

 

To get the best solution though, get both circuits on to the same ISP to get latency down as much as possible. If you are really serious, it could even be worth talking with a more specialist ISP who can do a hosted WAN with your UFB circuits.

Radio is a fragile technology for networking, especially with anything involving disk operations that could involve saving files. If you're both on fibre just run a vpn between both sites and get some edge equipment to setup and manage the tunnel and leave it at that.
