I really like them for cpe.  We have hundreds out there.  The only thing 
missing is a reset button :-).

I hate the ap's that I've used so far.  Most work like crap when they get at 
all busy.  Even the newest software isn't helping much.

Think I'll stick with MT for my AP's.  At least until I get a software 
version of the Tranzeo software that makes for a good ap.

>> A few responses here:
>>
>> 1)  You don't have to use Tranzeo APs with Tranzeo CPEs.    The new
>> Tranzeo APs (EN-500 series) does have a lot more management features
>> than the older Tranzeo units (TR-6000, TR-5a).   You can also use StarOS

>> 2)  The older CPEs do need to be rebooted occasionally.   The newer

>> 4)  Tranzeo is RUS approved.   I would have to dig up the link, but I

>> 5)  They work great for PTMP, and there are hundreds of thousands of

>> 802.11a based gear is especially capable and a great value.
>>
>> Hope that helps.
