Charles,

That statement, really depends on the price that is relased, and the volume the buyer is considering, as well as their time frame. If someone is planning on dropping 1/4-1/2 million on Licensed gear in a year, and the price is really good, allowing the provider to get 30% more links up for the same dollar, its not much of a risk being the first, considering the future potential reward. If the WISP's timeline is also spread out over the year, they have plenty of time to wait for bug fixes, before the bulk of the deployments. The golden question right now is, what price is Trango going to be at? The prospective buyers are predicting a low cost entry point, just because Trango has Always delivered industry leading price point, to jump start volume adoption in the industry. However, prior to seeing the price released, I'll say Dragon wave has the upper hand, for potentially being able to be the price leader based on their all outdoor design, compared to Trango's half and half indoor/outdoor.

I will tell you, the most exciting news of the year for me, is clearly Trango's entry into the Licensed space. I selected them once for their Superior designs, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again, if they follow their own suit with the initial mentality of innovated products, such as the 5830 product line in it's day.

With that said... I spoke with Dragon Wave, at the IWPC workshop this week. These guys get it, and is going to be a tough act to follow. The Dragon wave vision is to have a single management platform and infrastructure design for all your needs. Dragon wave is also very highly considering launching an E-band or 60Ghz product to their line, in the near future. Could you imagine that? Thats a product line that could bring WISPs to carrier class. Licensed Backhaul, GB near interference-free last mile.

The $$$$ question with Trango always is who wants to be first...

(Free beta testers don't count)
