I'm only interested in mesh device with proper dedicated backhaul, in this case the XT8's 5G-2 is solely used for backhaul traffic only not to mix with any other serving radio.

Note : The testing is solely based on my current environment/setup/configuration, it's for my own reference only and should not be used for any other comparison or benchmark purposes.
