Microwave links

I have an application where I'd would need to provide 200Mbps -  1Gbps internet connectivity over a microwave link over distances of 20-50 miles.

Sites would be transient so the idea of portable structures and trucks comes to mind.
I'm not initially thinking about buying the service.  Rather, implementing it.  

I'm starting to think that the typical equipment/system manufacturers' customers are larger communication companies and finding out much about what they (the microwave equipment folks) offer is a bit difficult.

I can do all the system analysis but I'm not familiar with current equipment / companies.

I'm looking for suggestions, links, etc.  Any actual experiences would help.
Also, any notions about costs for a microwave link end-to-end?

Have installed a variety of Ruckus ZoneFlex Wireless devices for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint backhauls. Found very reliable performance up to roughly 10 miles (15 km). http://www.ruckuswireless.com/products/zoneflex-outdoor/7731

Also looked at a variety of Trango Systems (Microwave) PTP and PTMP devices. Lots of information on their site:

Sounds like you could get by with a few portable structures or trucks with PTP relays to get to those distances and bandwidth.
