It doesn;t really matter, because the Proxim GB 60Ghz PTP radio is a nice radio, and not likely to get discontinued who ever ends up owning the change ownership happy Proxim. The bigger question is wether 60Ghz will meet your need. The real excitement is in the 70 Ghz and 80Ghz bands, that have longer distances applicable for WISPs. What will be most existing is when 70-80Ghz gear is down to Proxim 60Ghz price. I really see no reason a 70-80Ghz radio needs to be any more costly than the 60Ghz ones.

Hi,
Several weeks ago I posted BridgeWave and GigaBeam prices and quick features of wireless Gbps gear.
   Has anyone tried or know about this option:
-- Proxim Gigalink 6451e- 60Ghz; unlicensed; $10,500 complete link; ? 5-year hardware warranty; 1Gbps Pricing is attractive, isn't it (specially when customer's budget is very constrained)? But is Proxim a reliable company at this point?
   Thanks.

Mario
