We're looking into purchasing a Cisco BWX-8300 in anticipation of the FCC decision that the 3.4-3.6GHz will soon be open for public use. I do not believe it's possible to have a software solution that provides ASN service. Likewise, I do not believe software exists that provides the functions of the Cisco Broadband Wireless Gateway. Since we want to to allow this unit to connect directly to an ethernet system we want to ensure a purchase of this unit isn't a mistake. We are not looking to invest in anything else (the antenna is included) outside of the base station as we are used to all in one systems such a the Tranzeo model, which runs 802.16D.
I know that the station requires GPS and we intend on purchasing an inexpensive receiver to provide this. Likewise, we do not own a Cisco BWX 8303 Basestation Timing System and are looking to avoid that purchase. As I said, we're a fan of the "all in one" systems.
Thanks in advance for any help and assistance from the community!
