Does anyone else even make product that takes care of FCC new power rules?”

 

Navini, which has it’s own share of problems, for starters, don’t believe everything their website tells you!

Its always disappointing to hear news of a company in the wireless space shutting down. It reflects poorly on the industry, expecially when its a manufacture of a product that has many technical acheivements such as Vivato.  I look at wireless gear, like people, each with their own personality and unique traits, and the world is better off with multiple product personalities as the world is with multiple people personalities.  I wish Vivato and its affiliates the best in getting through this process.  I guess that most likely, some big name brand wireless company will buy the assets and keep the technology alive, as it does have unique capabilty. I'll also say, its probably Vivatos own fault, based on their poor decission to over value their product and try and get $10,000 for a wifi AP, in a world full of tough competitors.  The technology very well may survive based on intellectual property that likely will get bought for a fraction of its original cost. At the end of the day, creditors get screwed, and it becomes an example that incourages investors in our wireless space to second guess their investment strategies.  And I feel for WISPs that chose Vivato, who are likely going to be in a position of significant risk and cost moving forward.  Does anyone else even make product that takes care of FCC new power rules? Other than maybe SkyPilot?  I don't use Vivato, so it does not directly effect me, but indirectly when the industry is effected, it effects us all.  For example, its Vivato that encourages manufacturers to start to make Smart antennas to compete with Vivato. That market pressure no longer exists without Vivato. 

 

Strategically it does buy more time for WiFi WISPs to consider what they will do on their networks to survive the potential candidates that would use equipment that supported the new higher power rules.

 

This is also a lesson for us all. Its says that technology does not guarantee survival, a realistic business plan and reaching its goals does.

 

PS. Glad I chose Trango :-)
