Re: [Equipment] Does the Cisco BWX-8300 require AAA + Cisco GPS

said by newgame1978:

Since we're starting out with a single BTS deployment to test out the propogation differences between this and the Tranzeo moddels, it would be ideal if the unit would run without.

You have to ask the FAE. My hunch is that Cisco firmware can be configured (with hidden options) to allow you to test only the BTS.

However, if your main goal is to compare "propagation differences" with some Tranzeo Wimax model, you don't even need to bother ... the Cisco will win hands down because of much better RF front-end and antenna array design. Cisco does not embellish specs either: »www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collate···408.html

Wavesat of Montreal, who provided the wimax chipset used by Tranzeo, was purchased by Cavium and I recall Tranzeo was delisted from stock markets. So it may not be a good bet for a future wimax network. My guess is that some overseas operators (specially in India) chose Tranzeo mainly because of low cost and maybe that "all-in-one" convenience.
