    We installed an Alvarion B300 link and removed it after 2 weeks
    Latency was very high 700ms in some cases
    the connection was lost several times a day
    the bandwidth we got was 1/2 comparing to what Alvarion told us
    in any case we found out that it is not really an Alvarion product
    it is from a small Russian company called Infinet, so this is not really Alvarion Quality product, but an Infinet product that Alvarion OEM
    We replaced this link with RW2000 from RADWIN - what a difference
