This is a great band into which to deploy mobile WiMax because of the geographic coverage -- Clearwire says that they can reach 90m residents with current licenses -- and the channelization, which is wide enough to allow sufficient bandwidth for real mobile applications, including video.
Because Vivato's product is both an access point and an antenna integrated into one package, they may have more control over how they handle this kind of channelization or reuse while still working within Wi-Fi specifications.
Cindy Brown, who runs the Gulf of Mexico program for The Nature Conservancy (and, I am proud to say, is a Nicholas School alum), applauds projects like this but believes they will eventually fall short without addressing the root causes of the wetlands problem -- the mess we have made of the Mississippi River with the dams and the levees and the channelization and the canals crisscrossing the delta.
Deforestation, over grazing, river channelization, hardscaping (covering large swaths of landscape with asphalt and concrete), and many other activities impact the frequency and severity of natural disasters.
First, by closing unused canals and halting destructive channelization projects and dredge and fill operations in the midst of the Louisiana wetlands.
