I offer this only to help.
1. I cannot deploy ePMP 3000 until some type of QOS is in the firmware. I've already waited a long time for other basic features of this product. It sits on my inventory shelves as I buy more ePMP 2000 and Force 200/180 subs. About 75% of my network cannot use 20Mhz channels or larger, which also makes this product unusable for us. This has taken too long.
2. The Force 300 and PTP 550 latency is just not going to cut it. Period.
3. The PTP670, which is a modded PTP650 is a solid backhaul. But the price point puts this older backhual into cheaper licensed backhaul territory. It seems no new territory is being broken in this segment of Cambium's business in favor or the AC wave2 stuff, which again, I've highlighted as being poor or unfinished. It seems that R&D has been focusing on wifi based chipset instead of the proprietary Cambium chipset -may not have been a bad thing if ACwave 2 stuff worked, but hasn't for us thus far.
I've been a primary Cambium user and I am the first to praise their products and give credit where due. But, lately things seem to be rolling differently. Like, lets make the products feature rich but put a back seat to performance and reliability -and in my case usablity. I don't get why the focus was so high on forward and backward compatibility of the 3000 when you guys didn't even have QOS or 10Mhz channels available. Cart before the horse in my opinion. All of this while releasing new software like CNheat, advanced spectrum analyzer, other flavors of the 3000, the focus on transitioning other brands with "elevate", and expensive switches that are not rated for tower use. All this stuff is doing in my opinion is pulling focus away from making great radios. What's next, solar panels?
I'm not an expert in what makes money for Cambium, I'm just a customer who remembers that Cambium used to wait to put out products that #1 worked great out of the box and had all the features you needed to build and grow a WISP. Maybe other WISP's were asking for some of these products and services you've horizontally integrated into, but I never saw it on the idea's page or in the forums. Meanwhile, there are actual ideas from customers that are ignored in the idea forum.
