Now that Alvarion has dedicated a person to lend an ear to the wISP industry and an Official Alvarion Representative is a member of the list I think this is a good opportunity to field the pros and cons of the VL product.
What are the VL strong points vs. the shortcomings? Here are a few off the top of my head and I would encourage other VL users to post their findings. The objective is to provide the feedback I'm sure Alvarion is looking for to improve and help shape the evolution of current and future Alvarion products. Pros: High quality construction VLAN support Alignment LEDS Committed and enthusiastic personnel Capable of 10MHz & 20MHz channels High payload capacity under ideal conditions ATPC (Auto Tx Power Control?) Cons: No dual band capability No dual polarity capability No Rx threshold AU requires lengthy reboot network downtime for RF survey AU requires lengthy reboot network downtime for many configuration changes Non-standard CAT5 color code requires re-termination of included cable Weather seal not large enough to pass RJ45 through Best, Brad -- WISPA Wireless List: email@example.com Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
