[WISPA] Mobility and Roaming was: Wifi outperforms Cellular and Wimax

Sadly WISPs have dragged their feet in development of true mobility and roaming. These features are the true differentiators of wireless broadband over DSL or DOCSIS. The cellular industry is more quickly adapting to the need to move to an IP centric platform for their mobile voice/data systems

That comes to $24,288 for 20 miles aerial fiber with 64 strands. Obviously this does not include easements, make ready, labor, etc. but obviously the costs to put in fiber have dropped considerably over the last few years. What brand fiber / supplier quoted you this if you do not mind me asking?

Re: [WISPA] VOIP Adapter for digital PBX over wireless

2009-04-13 Thread John Scrivner
This is not supported. For this to work the interface would have to be capable of replicating all the digital PBX signals from end to end (digital phone to PBX port). Currently only analog PSTN replication is supported or pure VoIP. Digital PBX systems (non-VoIP) do not fall under either category.
