A better product is nice and all, but there is more to product selection
than just price/performance. We have to take into account availability.
With distributors we can rely on them to stock a product, so that when
we need it in a short time frame it is available. Distributors provide
other benefits as well that I am sure most on this list are aware of.
With Trango's actions we simply can't buy from them.

I also know Trango is a better product than Moto is more ways than one
and Trango is going to be releasing a lower priced 5.x SU that will be
very competitive with Moto as they have made some changes in the
production of the external housing to allow a lower cost. I think they
are going to implement a cheap plastic housing like Motorola?

We are looking to start deploying 5.8Ghz multi-point radios at some
of our sites. I am hoping some folks on this list can share
experiences and ideas on what radios might meet our needs. We have
experimented with Canopy and Trango, but would really like some
better choices. From a specification standpoint, Canopy general meets
our needs, but we don't like being constrained on the antenna. We
would like to use sectors bigger than 60 degrees and we would like to
use horizontal polarization. We don't want to use Trango for no other
reason than they can't work with distributors. We really like the
flexibility on many 802.11a-based radios and certainly the price, but
the contention aspects of the protocol and the perception of Wi-Fi
being a consumer grade technology stop us from going that route.
Any thoughts from the list?
