FUNDAMENTALS FOR OPTIMUM PLACEMENT
In order of importance:
- HOTSPOT DENSITY
- ANTENNA “VIEW”
- APPROPRIATE ANTENNA
- MINIMIZED & HIGH QUALITY CONNECTION LENGTH/CABLES
HOTSPOT DENSITY: Optimum density is determined using Uber’s H3 map. At the low end, hotspots won’t earn from other hotspots less than 300 meters away. At the high end, hotspots can “witness” other hotspots 50 km out.
Back to the Uber map. The map uses (mostly) hexagons to form grids of different sizes. Each size is called a “resolution” or “res” for short. Each hex size has an appropriate density for its resolution.
