YEP. That was a key point not mentioned in the Commnet brief.
The lower cost APs, will allow a WISP to expand their network footprint quicker, without waiting on a long sector ROI first. The idea is not to shaft Alvarion out of their end game revenue that they deserve, as a WISPs that uses thateir gear for a fully populated network, can well justifiy its cost. And more likely they will get there, if they have quality gear to help them on their way. This program is a program to help a WISP grow, and manage their costs propoirtional to their received revenue, not their unreached potential.
Its that mentality that I liked in the program.

I'm guessing Patrick went over the 25 user stand alone base station that
will retail for $2,595. This will be an upgradeable version that you can
start a POP with, recover some costs, then upgrade when the time comes
and you get close to the 25 subscriber attachments. Brad

Sorry, I have not responded sooner guy, but I kept missing opportunities
to
connect to the Internet.
The reason I did not post details on the List, is that the pricing and
program is a deal designed and offered ONLY to WISPs, and I was not sure

what part of it was suppsoed to be confidential or Open to disclose.

The program is for the existing VL product line, the one you always
wanted
to buy, but thought you could never afford.
There are volume commits involved, but they are VERY minimal. The Plan
is
not just about pricing, it also includes additonal support for WISPs via

online content and such.  When you learn about it, you will see why I
was so
excited.  This program is something that never could have happened
without
someone like Patrick Leary behind it, who fully understands the needs of

WISPs, and went to bat for us.

What I liked about the program is that it came from the principle of how
can
they help us, help ourselves as a group, and ultimately reach higher
volume
of product deployment (For mutual benefit). Understand that this is Best
of
Breed product, at the top of the pyramid, so sod course set realistic
expectations that their is no justification for the program to compete
against $99 CB3 boxes. But it now allows a WISP to make decisions based
on
whether the features and design of the product is the best product for
the
job, rather than having to make selection based on price. It allows a
WISP
to step up their operations a couple notches, and puts FCC certified /
carrier class gear within their reach.

Disclaimer: The fact that I am impressed by the Alvarion program, and
without a doubt will be participating in this program personally, does
not
take away the value that other manufacturer's products may also deliver.

But I now can make my decissions based on the merit of the individual
product lines, for the appropriate locations.  Alvarion is not the
appropriate product for all my needs, but I know where I do need it, and

I've been waiting for this day for that opportunity.

yeah, tom, don't post a book, but give us details.

I'm sure Patrick will be chiming in on this one.

I love Alvarion gear.  Just can't afford it.  Mikrotik's just as good,
if
not
better at some things, but sometimes I'd just love a DS11 backhaul
everywhere...or bigger. :)

Those who were not there, (WISPA meeting), some extremely exciting
news
was
released by Alvarion.
The details of the Comnet program. Clearly the most exciting news from
the
show.
I can't even begin to communicate the impression that it made.
There could not have been a stronger message that they want WISPs as
their
customer.
A WISP will NEVER again use the excuse that they can not afford
Alvarion.
Since this is a public list, I'll leave the details, for WISPs to
discover
when checking out the program.
But I will hint by saying, it enables Alvarion for residential.
Its a pretty hard sell, NOT to switch.
