ISP looking at going wireless


I am working for a ISP who wish's to go wireless. I was looking at the ORiNOCO line of products from Verison(now owned by Agere). Has any one used this hardware or know of someone who has?

Im not very concerned with WEP as its easily cracked. I was told supply's some very usefull software for managing wireless networks(and security for them), Again, Anyone used this or know of people who have?

Im also looking around at Cisco's offering's. The WT-2700(the 2710 + 2750 systems) looks close to what i am looking for. This seams to be Cisco's only wireless offerings, Anyone know of some 802.11b offerings from them??

Re: ISP looking at going wireless

I have tested Aironet, OriNoco, and Symbol radios in my lab. The aironet has measurably better throughput than the others because it does it's encryption in formware rather than hardware. As far as WEP, if you're worried about WEP do some sort of 802.11X authentication such as LEAP.
