Never tried to put that many on a tower, but then again we don't use too
many towers. We've had 15 or so on a single roof before, but for the
most part we never really put more than 5 radios on the same structure.
We have over 100 roofs under contract, so we don't really need to load
up any single roof with too many radios.

We rarely use multi-point systems for customers and when we do they
are either small businesses with very little voice and data needs or
they are just data customers. All of our customers with any
significant amount of voice are running on dedicated radios. I would
say our average customer buys 12 lines of voice and delivering that
over a Canopy backhaul works just fine.

So you agree then that being able to do VoIP is key. I'd like to
about your experiences with VoIP. Is your solution actually doing it
is that your idea of doing VoIP well is 8 only concurrent calls per

very users of other common 5GHz brands these past few week and we
consistently told that performance is just dandy until you bump up
calls. That is a less than 50 call per cell limit, which does not
enough to justify the investments needed on the NOC end for the

Matt, to further your comments that you see WISPs providing layer 2
We have multiple CLECs and non-CLECs buying layer 2 transport from
us now. All are used to buy alternative access from fiber providers
and therefore fixed wireless was a naturally next step. Further,
almost all indicated they would have done it sooner, but the fixed
wireless companies they approached weren't willing to offer them
layer 2 transport.
How about VoIP? How many of you consider VoIP to be an
important part of your service future as a WISP? If so, how do you
support since it cannot be done decently with the other popular 5GHz
solutions. That's not my opinion so much as the opinion of many larger
Trango and Motorola WISPs I have been talking to lately.
We are doing a significant amount of VoIP now. We have VoIP
customers running on top of both Trango and Canopy radios. Canopy is
a significantly better solution for VoIP since we can properly
prioritize voice with Canopy, while we cannot with Trango. We also
wholesale VoIP to other operators and help them --if they require
it-- with getting their network ready to support VoIP.
If a key goal of WISPs is growing ARPU, what are WISPs plans for
with whatever your current technology permits?
I believe VoIP is the number one way to grow ARPU and the fact that
we bundle VoIP is why I believe we have one of the highest ARPUs in
