Range is useless except for just "fun" and testing around indoors or across the street. When is the WISP gear coming out? I remember seeing LAH 60Ghz models advertised almost a year ago at the Denver MUM, is there any ETA on when those will be available, or did they scrap it? Also would be nice to see a large outdoor beamforming AP sector with high gain antenna, then use the LAH-60 CPE's (hopefully a high power version) for customers and at LEAST get us 1 mile or 1.5 mile range, to make it somewhat useable in those rare cases where we have customers so close to the tower they can hit it within a mile.
So because your customers are all at least a mile away this classes the present 60Ghz units as 'useless fun'?
I use Mimosa for 50 to 500 meter distances and deliver up to 250Mbps in a crowded 5Ghz band. Highly profesional network!
Now MT has their 60Ghz solution so we are planning to build a back to back 60Ghz back bone infrastructure to deliver even more speed to our clients. We are having cells where in a 100 meters range 50 or more household can be found........
With the price policy of MT this is an absolute breakthrough in massive 60Ghz deployment. You can now build a wireless local backbone network by building-hopping with 1Gb symmetric capacity for a price even the heaviest subsidised fibre can't compete. I would classify that as "highly useful fun."
