11a is not that bad (every tool has a place). I could use the cpe <today> in my network and get a trango AP when one of the sites has more then a handful of people on it. I am assuming the AP's will be more thne the [EMAIL PROTECTED] units price too. If a AP is $200~300 then its easy to pick. $500 or more and its not such a great deal (for me). I can do $200 cpe and $300 AP's faster then I can a $150CPE and a $500+ AP. That is just my business setup today, and it will be changing very soon. It is also a flexability that other manufs do not have. They could likely move a very large number of 11a units and get more people to switch up to Trango AP's later,
I know it would get me hooked.

The purpose of using Trango is to NOT be 802.11a.
Trango solves all the 802.11a problems, why would you take the problems back on again, after Trango solved them?

Would it be possible to have standard 802.11a support from this client?
What about 5/10mhz channels?
That would make this a "super killer product" even more then it sounds
now. Personally I would pay a
small fee per unit to have 11a support, 5/10mhz channels are becoming

    Trango Introduces New $149 WISP Subscriber Unit

      /— Lowest priced fixed wireless modem available —/

*SAN DIEGO, CA — January 18, 2006* - Trango Broadband Wireless, the leader in fixed broadband wireless equipment, introduced a major addition to its product line which will enable Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) to, for the first time, compete head-to-head against cable and DSL providers with the high performance /Atlas Fox/ M5580M-FSU wireless modem, priced at just $149 and capable of internet transmission speeds from 10 to 30 Mbps.

“We truly believe that the introduction of the /Atlas Fox/ wireless modem is the sea change event that will transform the wireless internet service market into a consumer mass-market service capable of out-competing cable and DSL delivery methods,” said Zdravko Divjak, CEO and President of Trango Broadband Wireless. “This product is eliminating the final obstacle toward nationwide deployments of fixed broadband wireless networks capable of serving millions of users coast to coast.”

“There’s nothing /lite/ about the /Atlas Fox/ M5580M-FSU,” said Todd Easterling, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing for Trango Broadband Wireless. “This product offers the industry’s highest performance and at a dramatic price breakthrough. Our engineers have outdone themselves on this one, and many of the wireless internet service providers who have Beta-tested the /Atlas Fox /are raving about the price to performance ratio. To provide /real/ 10 Mbps to their subscribers, at only $149 for the CPE (consumer premise equipment), enables WISPs to offer high-speed internet access to an entirely new market. More than ever, the return on investment and break-even points for WISPs deploying Trango are measurably superior to our competitors,” added Mr. Easterling. “Over the past few months we have clearly seen the cost and design benefits associated with controlling the entire product development and sales process—from engineering specification, to radios rolling off the production line of our own state-of-the-art factory in San Diego, to the direct sales model for the U.S. market. And most importantly, we’re passing on many of these benefits to our customers.”

Trango’s /Atlas Fox/ M5580M-FSU wireless modem, which can reach internet subscribers over twelve miles away from an Access Point (AP), currently provides upload and download speeds up to 10Mbps, and is upgradeable to speeds over 30Mbps. This provides a platform for next generation internet services known as the “triple play” (voice, video and data). In contrast, cable and telephone/DSL companies generally offer service between 1 Mbps and 6 Mbps bandwidth for downloads, and between 128 Kbps and 768 Kbps for uploads. Trango is taking orders for the /Atlas Fox/ now. Shipments begin February 7 th, 2006.
