No it gives you 10 or 10 half duplex, which is a big difference. Symetrical does not necessarilly mean at the same time.

Comcast and Verizon use oversubscription the their advantage in marketing, we use Half Duplex.

Advantage AP 14 Mbps will give you 7 / 7 Mbps, and thats at the same time, wheres with Trango you can only get 5 /5 ...

Because you will run out of upload capacity and the sector will be "full". We sell up to 2Mbps connections (2Mbps down and 2Mbps up)... so I would have to go to 50/50 split, meaning only 3.5Mbps download capacity... compared with 10Mbps for my Trango units.

WE provide Symetrical Business service with Canopy, why you couldn't ?

A Regular AP has 7 Mbps if you split 75/25 that translates to : 5.25 / 1.75

Why can you sell a 512/512 over that type of AP split ?

We use Advantage and have 10/4 MBps of capacity. My biggest Symetrical Plan
is 3 Mbps, any other Customer that needs 5 , 6 10 symetrical gets a
dedicated ptp link ...

The biggest reason we use Trango is because we sell our wireless service as symmetrical. Even on the residential level, if they purchase 512k they get 512k down and 512k up. So, if I use Canopy, I have to do a 50/50 split, which means even the Advantage product only provides 7Mbps of "usable" bandwidth.

I would estimate 15% of our new signups for wireless are because of the symmetrical speed (even though 99% of them never use it). Another 15% comes from offering a real static IP address.

GPS sync is extra $$.

Of course you can also just string sync cables between radios for free.

True, but this is truly what makes canopy works and you have nice 3rd party options like and for the gps sync
units that start @ less than $300 for a 4 port Sync unit

Thanks for the reference to third party sync devices. I am not at all happy with the CMM. I looked at the devices from the respective vendors you shared. While they do look more in line with our needs than the CMM I was wondering if you have seen any third party sync devices that are rack mount and can handle 10+ radios. In fact, handling 24 radios would be awesome for us.
