Title: RE: stds-802-16: FW: Cisco announcements
for your comments.
read once again the PAR and didn't see any reference to the business
customers. At the contrary, our aim is to give a solution for the huge
quantities of residential market. This was also the aim of the NWEST mandate, if
I remember well.
Evidently that in residential urban deployment
conditions you can't provide line of sight generally, and short-range,
reflection based propagation is generally seen as a solution in the LMDS
frequencies. In these cases the modem should have multipath
can't refuse apriori to answer the residential market problems, and by
this stop its development. On the other side, the business market is the only
one that is able to pay the existing price of the LMDS
is why I think that we should draft more than one PHY
to have good answers for both markets. Due to the fact that the
general schedule is very aggressive, maybe we should try to find, if
possible, already standardized solutions.
Cisco's product is targeted for MMDS frequencies aiming for
the residential market. The MMDS band is out of the scope of the current PAR.
Furthermore, the PAR prioritizes business customers.
One of the reasons that we decided to go with 10 GHz and above
(And not below) is mainly due to the different propagation conditions
associated with MMDS frequencies.
