As much as I've protested Canopy, (in my mind poor design), the smaller the gaps are getting. The problem is that Trango kept degrading their gear more and more like Canopy. And Canopy kept improving their gear.
Trango still wins, because Trango is less expensive.
Canopy still has some of the traits that I also don't like about Trango (darn DSS dish antennas).

My goal is to gain the High Arpu business. Who the winner will be is not a dying breed product, but the manufacturer that steps up to the plate to deliver a complete product. I want to be done with half-assed antennas. What I've learned is that the ANTENNA IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE RADIO.

Trango's strength had always been their internal antennas and options for good external ones.

On a side note, Does Canopy 5.8G CPEs have external connectors?

The truth is, I want the cheap CPE antenna option, for half my installs, cause it saves me money and thats all I need to do the job. I just don't want to give up the flexibilty to optimize reliabitly for the other 50%.

The other thing you forget is, I'd now rather fight it out, and stay put on the channel, doesn't mean that I will win. With Trango, I still have the option to change my mind, when somebody beats me up, and I need to go run to another channel or polarity. Its always good to have a backup plan.

What I'm learning is that as my business grows, the abilty to change and
move (channel options) is becoming less important that the abilty to
effectively battle it out. The reason is that if every time I hiot noise, I
move away from the channel, eventually others take those channels., until
they are all gone, and their is no where else to move to. Sometimes its
better to claim the space and say, "I'm here first", "go find another
channel to play on".  And keep fighting back with better antennas. As the
antenna grows, you over power the interference, but the important point is,
you reduce the interference to you and them, by restricting the beamwidth.
The high power via antenna you go, the more courtious it is to the other
player to attempt avoidence of signals interfering.  Alvarion gives that


Based on that observation...shouldn't you be looking at Canopy <ducking>
