  • Just look up Ubiquiti and Rukus on if you want to know which has the better products. UBNT has hundreds of rave reviews for each product while RKUS has usually one or two and they could easily placed by employees. Also look at the YahooKey Statistics: PEG for RKUS is 2.24 vs only .72 for UBNT. It's hype and PR vs a genius-led company with products like Apple used to do (Robert Pera, the resident genius came from there.)

    "The 60GHz band has been used for high-capacity networking indoors and to extend fiber-optic Internet service from one commercial building to others nearby. The FCC loosened some rules governing this band of spectrum last year, saying that it could be used to provide wireless connections of up to a mile at speeds up to seven gigabits per second.

    That could extend service without the cost of building new wireline networks in some areas, the FCC said in August. Most broadband Internet services offer much slower speeds, below one gigabit per second.

    On his LinkedIn profile, Gelbman described Alpental’s product as a “self-organizing, ultra-low power Gigabit wireless technology” that extends the reach of fiber-optic networks. It was designed for dense urban areas and to work with next-generation 5G wireless networks and Wi-Fi" (Wall St Journal)
    Low noise and not bothered by rain and snow, these frequencies could revolutionize everything. Hopefully the surprise promised by Pera will use that band.

    Two pictures in the Wired article show a yellow base station ball that probably contains the UBNT device. If they provide LTE it will probably get its signal from this ball. LTE uses licensed frequencies too so a cellphone provider would probably distribute the connection.

  • Their project Loon system uses standard UBNT equipment hanging from balloons to relay internet to the ground. They can cover the earth with about 300 balloons. The balloons currently stay up for 75-100 days. Here's a hopeful quote:
    ""We’ve definitely crossed the point where there’s a greater than 50 percent chance that [internet service enabled by high-altitude balloons] will happen," Google X project director Mike Cassidy told Wired."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • This is where bids and turnaround plans would be presented. Glad to be long!

    The problem is that the traders don't look at fundamentals at all and just see fast growth as a bubble no matter what. In the end fundamentals will surely win. Just relax and hold on and longs will win big in the end.
