Hmmm...

I'll believe it when I see it. Kind of like I "believed" MeshNetworks too.

But, if it works as they predict, it could be promising.

This thing is also huge

A 2 foot by 4 foot antenna... not exactly something to install for CPE.

»www.wired.com/news/wireless/0,13···,00.html

"Vivato’s prototype panel is about 2 feet by 4 feet and a few inches thick. Resembling a cubicle half-wall left lying around the office, it contains the array of antennas, a one-unit high rack mount server (or at least the components of one), and sports only a power cord and gigabit ethernet jack on its exterior."

How much is thing thing going to cost? Yikes!

Re: This thing is also huge

HAHHA dirk, I don't think you get it. The CPE that the customer uses is a standard Wi-Fi card. No more AP's needed!!!!!!!
