We want as much capacity as possible, but certainly 10Mbps minimum. This is for business customers only and we won't be oversubscribing the sectors, so there isn't a need to support many subscribers per sector. Not sure what you are asking in terms of scale, could you be more specific? VoIP will be used across the radio links however the traffic is encapsulated in MPLS.

Matt, How much capacity do you need per 5.8 Ghz sector? Is this a business
or residential rollout or both? How many subscribers per sector do you want
to support? How large do you want to scale this network and is managment,
batch firmware loads for radio updates, vlan tagging, voip support important
to you? Brad

Subject: [WISPA] 5.8Ghz Multi-point radios

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?
