A typical BTA for a MMDS or ITFS build may only be 24 Mhz. Half of what you're saying isn't enough (50 Mhz). Some projects I'm working on have a whopping total of 10 mhz.
I remember Patrick disagreeing with the contention based protocal in 3650 not the amount of spectrum. Like I said before, the alternative is for more efficient radio systems and not gear that takes up a 20 mhz channel to get you 6-10 meg's like most systems being deployed today in the name of cheap, interference resilient, or whatever other name you put on the product. I would aurgue the point that the FCC wants more efficient use of our unlicensed bands now and in the future. Brad -----Original Message----- From: Marlon K.

But it is only 50 mhz. How much is itfs? How much is mmds? How much was the new 5.4 gig band? Part of what we're looking for is the WHOLE TV band. I remember Patrick saying that none of you manufacturers were at all excited about 3650 because there just wasn't enough spectrum there to make it useful! My how times change. grin. Your point is well taken though. What would you suggest as an alternative? What are other people's thoughts? thanks, Marlon (509) 982-2181 Equipment sales (408) 907-6910 (Vonage) Consulting services 42846865 (icq) And I run my own wisp! 18.104.22.168 (net meeting) www.odessaoffice.com/wireless www.odessaoffice.com/marlon/cam -- WISPA Wireless List: email@example.com Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
