All, Bear in mind, Clearwire uses their own base station technology, which is mostly Nextnet base stations ( now motorola ) . Nextnet's performance is not wimax, just really high power base stations and CPE. 4 QAM / 2 WATT output power / 8dbi directional antenna on the CPE and I think around 10

802.16e in 5.8ghz would be absolutely the biggest waste of money ever as you wouldn't get a true mobile network but your network costs would be around, yaknow, 300k for a market of 20k people for just BASE station equipment. The way to go if you are really worried about upward

[WISPA] Longest 18ghz link

2007-10-07 Thread Travis Johnson
Hi, Does anyone have any information on long 18ghz links? I keep running the path calculations on a link I am considering (28 miles with 2ft dishes) and I come up with 99.99% uptime for my region. I would really like to chat with anyone that has anything around that range and frequency. I'm

I already have the 18ghz set sitting on the shelf, that would be the only reason to use it. Here's the interesting thing about a link that long: 2ft dishes = 99.9955% uptime (23 minutes per year outage) 4ft dishes = 99.9992% uptime (5 minutes per year outage) I can live with 23 minutes per
