A quick update New Years Update!
We officially began initial beta testing early this week of the GPS Sync TDMA 2.2 software release.
I've received a number of questions about whether there were technical issues causing the delays so far, I'd like to clarify this has purely been Mimosa ensuring we had adequate internal multipoint test networks in place in real-world GPS sync typical environments, not just lab testing or simulation. Since this is our first major multipoint release, we needed to spend the time to expand our outdoor network to bake out the software, and validate both local tower A5c sector sync and distributed geographic A5 MicroPoPs with a representative scale of clients. This is all to avoid wasting your time as best as we can.
So that you all understand our multipoint beta process, we do the beta test staging sequentially, adding new beta users that we've carefully surveyed AP and client distribution scenarios on existing A5/A5c/C5 deployments. As we see continued success and have confidence that it's high quality software, we expand to new beta users. So while we have talked with many users about beta testing, we are coordinating this cycle carefully to make sure we have resources here at Mimosa in support and engineering to analyze every deployment carefully.
So some good news at the end of the year, but it's likely at least a 6 week process to get to full release for the software to get out into the wild in general release.
Happy New Years everyone!
