I take it from this post regarding Canopy that the other systems you tested were not as much speed? Waverider has more aggregate throughput than what each client individually will get because of polling. So maybe three Waverider clients running at full speed could be the same as Canopy aggregate? I just don't know. I do believe that Waverider aggregate max is about 3 meg per sector.

If you want to compare then let us see what you have seen for all the systems you have tested. Let's compare apples to apples. Canopy allows one single client to use full aggregate speed while Waverider does not as far as I know. I believe this is a matter of design choice and not a limitation in Waverider. I could be wrong but I am certain I was told this by Waverider representatives in the past. I welcome your input.

I do not know what other systems use for site survey tools but Waverider has an incredible spectrum analyzer tool which develops a spectrum scan readout of the entire 900 Mhz band. This is a full color chart in PDF format created in the CCU itself. It works fantastic and helps identify any possible interference right away. I am very satisfied with the Waverider systems we have in place. We currently are running 4 towers of Waverider. Two of them have omni's. One has two sectors and another has three sectors. We have about 230 Waverider customers online right now. They are the most reliable wireless systems we have online.

I do not think you will find any 900 Mhz 2M X 2M solutions out there that will scale well. I use Waverider and it works really well for my service. I offer two plans. 768K and 256K up and down. I can get about 70 to 100 clients per sector with Waverider running this way. I think the polling MAC in Waverider keeps the max speed per client at about 1.5 meg up and down. If I have someone needing 2M or more I sell them a connection to my Trango AP.

I sell 2M X 2M connections... will WR gear keep up with this, and what is
the maximum available real throughput?   Not radio rates, but real-world
