Wireless PTP Solutions

I am in the process of researching fixed ptp solutions and I am trying to get a better grasp of what would be involved in deployment and the technologies currently in use.  We have a remote location which is less than 30 miles away from our data hub which has broadband resources that we would like to pipe in.  But due to its remote nature I cannot achieve the solution using current telco products.  We have gotten by with satelite for a few years but we have out grown its ability to provide bandwidth and uptime haas been an issue.  So the question is as far as technology goes what should i be looking for and what in your estimation would be a ball part cost of deployment.  Realistically bandwidth would be >= T1 but would need to be a scalable solution.  Direct line of sight may be an issue due to moutains so I need to be flexable in that regards.  Thanks in advance for your comments.

    You will probably need a p2p T1 or better..  this site is a good start, and as far as pricing, that depends on the area you are in..

    Sorry for not being more clear with the question, I have the T1 bandwidth solution at point A but what I need is the hardware solution to send that data wirelessly approx 15+ miles to point B.

    <<Telco>>-------T1--------<<Point A>>---{ Microwave solution }----<<Point B>>

    This appears to be a solution within my paremeters as an example

    Are there any providers offering 802.16 (WiMAX) or LRE (long reach ethernet) point of presence near that remote office <<Point B>>?  If so, you may be able to get a site-to-site VPN to the data hub <<Point A>> with pretty good bandwidth.  These are emerging technologies so their availability is scarce at the present time and may not be available.  It's worth checking though...

    Quote from Documentation  "Aggregate throughput can be obtained in excess of 28 Mbps. Also, by using higher gain antennas or lower data rates, ranges in excess of 20 miles point-to-point can be covered"

    To Buy a Antenna I would go here.  These guys will also tell you what you need to purchase to achive what you are doing.

    YOu would need to purchase an antenna similar to this for both ends.
