Tom, Yes, their gear (the paging stuff) not only costs more but their transmitters spurious emissions have to remain low or the paging company risks being fined by the FCC. Sure, a transmitter can malfunction once in a while and cause interference to the ISM band but this is not a common

Good info Jack. In a past life I was a headend tech in the cable television industry. and I also performed signal egress and ingress troubleshooting using a Hewlett Packard 8591B analyzer. I spent a few thousand hours on this tool and learned much about spectrum analysis at that time. Here is

Since your customers are mostly on a bridged network then a single malicious or misbehaving customer radio can take your WHOLE network down. The reason your backhaul is not affected is simply because it has more capacity than the prism AP units. I know you guys are tired of hearing from me

Mac, We believe this is truly an outside offender in 2.4 GHz. I have personally seen a carrier that is several times more power than anything I have ever seen. I only saw it for a brief instant though. This interference just does not last long enough to be caught. The high latency is caused
