Vivato’s WiFi Switch
Vivato has launched its “Wi-Fi phased-array antenna/switch, an indoor office system that can serve up to 150 users at 11 Mbps at distances up to 300 meters for about $9,000.” Analyses Glenn Fleishmann:
The Vivato unit is a switch not an access point.
Let that sink in, and you’ll realize what it means: each user has the potential through steered and focused beams to receive a full Wi-Fi speed connection without interfering with other users.
for many kinds of installations, primarily large venue hot spot and enterprise-scale campus or building projects, Vivato radically changes the deployment and maintenance costs and complexity, while so dramatically increasing network throughput on a per-client basis that it practically cannot be compared to any other product currently on the market.
