Like the others that have spoken up here we use 
MT. Butch does all of the work on it for us as I'm no router guy. 
Great stuff.

The only problem is that there is basically no 
factory support. And Butch has a real job too. grin

I've been sending my consulting customers to www.imagestream.com mostly. For 
about the same price that mt wants per MONTH for direct support you can get a 
full year of service. And when we buy the units from them they come with 
hardware and software support, pre programmed and with the firewalls all set up 
and ready to go. Great people, I've met a few of the guys from there 
eyeball to eyeball.

I LOVE my MT boxes and the gui is great. The 
lack of support is a deal breaker for me though. I'm stuck with them now 
but starting over I'd probably use something else.

If you have the pc's already laying around it's a 
far cheaper option though. Even after paying the devil (Butch) his due to 
make it work right. (just funnin with Butch here guys, he's THE man and 
should be charging more than he does, he's that good)

Hope that helps!

2005-12-09 Thread Marlon K. Schafer (509) 982-2181

Hi All,

Here's a trip report from Forbes Mercy.  He's one of the 4 man team we had 
in DC last week.


These guys did a great job and the feed back from the FCC folks has been 
very positive.  This trip was done at their own expense and time.  Please 
give them a big thanks for the whole industry!  It's guys willing to do this 
that have helped drive many of the gains we have in credibility etc. at the 
FCC.  The people in DC don't often get to interact with the people actually 
out on the streets.


In 6 or so months we'll want to send another team out there.  Be thinking 
about this and if you are willing to go, save up some coin and volunteer 
when the call comes down.


On the team were:
Dustin Jurman
Forbes Mercy
Tim Wolfe
Matt Liotta

Take care all,

Here is report I gave to my customers:

I was fortunate to be chosen as one of five owners of Wireless Internet
Service Providers (WISP) in the United States to speak to the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC).  I represented the WISPA and was the only
attendee from the Western United States, quite an honor.  The meetings
that we attended were at the FCC headquarters in Washington DC.

This included meetings with Commissioner Adelstein, Chairman Martin's
Legal Counsel and a board of staffers from the office of engineering and
technology.  They made up the WBAT Wireless Broadband Access Task Force
Policy and Technology divisions including the Chief of Staff.  We met in a
series of one on one meetings and then finished with power point
presentations that we prepared for the board.  This meeting was supposed
to last one and a half hours but ran up to four hours as they had a lot of
questions.

We face some stiff competition from the Cable and Telephone companies plus
some new competition from corporations who use licensed frequencies.  The
Commission is interested in the little guy because the feeling in the
industry is that we are the innovators and corporations rarely are.  We
brought Voice over IP telephones, IP Television and of course the original
Internet when the big corporations thought the Internet would be a passing
fad.  In other words we have their ear.  Plus we only come once a year
while the corporation's lobbyist feed them false information.

Among the issues we discussed was our constant need for more bandwidth
spectrum to keep providing more connections.  The feeling at first was the
FCC was appeasing us with a frequency that was shared with everyone else
and in fact could have been easily overpowered legally by other types of
users.  We have been very successful in providing Wireless Internet in
rural areas where President Bush really wants it.  The Corporations have
stopped their expansion as soon building out didn't recoup the investment,
therefore the FCC is giving us more secure frequencies all the time and we
asked for even more.  Another issue is power; in the wide-open West we
have to go greater distance in order to reach areas like White Pass,
Rimrock and the Nile.  The current one-watt radio won't do that.  In the
Southeast the WISP's said they couldn't have antenna dish's larger than
three feet or a hurricane could pull an antenna mast down.  Something I
had never thought of.  With higher power we don't have to use a large dish
but can make dozens of miles.

Other issues included expanding the Over the Air Devices Rule (OTAR) for
Satellite Dishes to Wireless Internet was discussed, securing the new
frequencies to be vendor neutral so competitive pricing can prevail, the
allowance of Wireless Broadband in the 700 MHZ frequencies referred to as
TV White space for heavily vegetated or hilly areas and, preference of
smaller WISP's access to regional purchase of licensed spectrum to prevent
corporations from lease and squatting in order to limit our natural
growth.  We also covered a reporting form being established by the FCC to
track the number of Americans using Broadband Internet.

Lastly we spoke of deployment of Emergency High Speed Networks after
disasters like Hurricanes.  The commission was interested to receive
feedback from hurricane Katrina and how after WISP's from across the
country helped New Orleans the city decided as one of their first action
to put up their own public wireless network.  This essentially shut out
the network that was put up to help them by private providers.  This
information helped the FCC understand how municipal Wireless networks
compete and interfere with successful private networks.

Finally, prior to the trip, we notified our complete congressional

I can't say enough about the guys at Imagestream. I'm a proud customer, host 
their servers and have put my business in their hands on more times than I 
have things to count them on. I've never had an issue they did not stop all 
other work to figure out and get tweaked. We have just installed on of their 
Rebel Routers in a shack at the base of the tower which feeds them their 
internet. Scott, Josh and Eric are working on doing some hard core QOS to 
run across my PTP link and having the added ability to do the QOS and P2P 
tweaking before the packets hit the PTP link has resulted in much better 
performance. Just the P2P work they have done has saved me a lot of problems 
and bandwidth. To say the staff are friends is an understatement. Having 
them on my wireless is also a big benefit to other WISP's as they have felt 
the pain first hand of many of the problems we all encounter from time to 
time a tower down due to massive ice loading, twice I've lost the AP on 
that tower to storm damage and the last issue was my PTP link going dead. 
Not only do I trust them but I rely on them and they have not failed me in 
any way over the last 5 years.

I am in the understanding that we will be able to purchase licenses for
Turbocell for some time but that support and upgrades will not be available.
I will not make any statements as to how long this will last.  

We currently put our CPE's together using ARC Wireless 19 dbi panels, WRAP
Boards, POE, Power Supply, Hermes II mini-pci cards, 64 Mb Compact Flash,
and a license (SV-4100-H) Total cost of these excluding labor is about $320.

We are not building new Turbocell networks!  We are only adding clients to
existing Turbocell networks and continue to build out mini-cells with
Star-OS and WRAP boards in a Hotspot format.

I don't know that you have much choice for Turbocell CPE other than build
your own.

 Hello to the list...

 My name is Mark Nash and I own  operate a little WISP of about 300
 customers in Oregon.

 For CPE, I started out using Breezecom 2.4GHz FH radios then switched to
 Karlnet RSU's loaded w/Turbocell.  Then the YDI/Terabeam/Proxim series of
 mergers  acquisitions happened and I've got products from all companies 
 but

 they are all Turbocell CPE.

 We have 6 WiPops surrounding our customer base (rural southern Willamette
 Valley).  We're using Trango backhauls...I started out using them simply
 because of their low cost and advertised bandwidth.  I still have two in 
 use

 from when the company was called Sunstream (I think it was 2002).  I 
 remain
 happy about that decision.

 We started out with a bridged network then ARP changed my tune and we went
 to a routed design.

 OK, so...there it is.  For those of you who know what's going on with
 Turbocell from the new Proxim, you probably know that I'm not happy as 
 they
 have set out to discontinue the Turbocell client software.  So I will soon
 have to purchase new AP's and shift some customers around because I won't 
 be

 able to purchase Turbocell-based devices.  That's the word from Proxim.
 So...anyone heard any differently?  I've also asked Proxim if we can
 'downgrade' our Turbocell products to 802.11b and they are saying 'no'.

 It's a you-know-what sandwich from which I'd rather not take a bite.

 Does anyone feel my pain?  Any way around these issues aside from 
 replacing
 CPE?

We started out with a bridged network then ARP changed my tune and we went
to a routed design.

OK, so...there it is.  For those of you who know what's going on with
Turbocell from the new Proxim, you probably know that I'm not happy as 
they
have set out to discontinue the Turbocell client software.  So I will soon
have to purchase new AP's and shift some customers around because I won't 
be

able to purchase Turbocell-based devices.  That's the word from Proxim.
So...anyone heard any differently?  I've also asked Proxim if we can
'downgrade' our Turbocell products to 802.11b and they are saying 'no'.

It's a you-know-what sandwich from which I'd rather not take a bite.

Does anyone feel my pain?  Any way around these issues aside from 
replacing
CPE?

Re: [WISPA] Intro/Karlnet/YDI/Terabeam/Proxim/Turbocell

2005-12-09 Thread A. Huppenthal
Go get some Canopy client radios for $260 each, complete  - check the 
performance, ease to install and setup. We did homebrew for quite a 
while and it has its downside as we're seeing. Just my opinion. You get 
a nice spectrum analyzer built-in, 2 minute setup, 2 minute test once 
its placed. Audible signal strength - no pc needed on the ladder. There 
are lots of solutions. 5.2 / 5.7 ghz Moto stuff runs thousands of 
subscribers. I'm not affliated with Moto/Canopy and don't ask me to sell 
you anything.


Best wishes.

Thanks Rick.. I've heard alot about these WRAP boards.  Is this 
something we would put together ourselves or are there products 
available.  What are the costs like?  I guess I'd really be interested 
in what I should be doing for CPE going on, assuming we can still get 
the Turbocell licenses (see post from Blair Davis re: Winncomm 
continuing to be able to sell Turbocell licenses).

Mark,

Contact me offlist as we are successfully deploying WRAP boards with 
Compact
Flash loaded with Turbocell.  My pains are compounded about 4 times 
as I had

about 24 Turbocell POPs when this all started.

Hello to the list...

My name is Mark Nash and I own  operate a little WISP of about 300
customers in Oregon.

For CPE, I started out using Breezecom 2.4GHz FH radios then switched to
Karlnet RSU's loaded w/Turbocell.  Then the YDI/Terabeam/Proxim 
series of
mergers  acquisitions happened and I've got products from all 
companies but


they are all Turbocell CPE.

We have 6 WiPops surrounding our customer base (rural southern 
Willamette

Valley).  We're using Trango backhauls...I started out using them simply
because of their low cost and advertised bandwidth.  I still have two 
in use


from when the company was called Sunstream (I think it was 2002).  I 
remain

happy about that decision.

We started out with a bridged network then ARP changed my tune and we 
went

to a routed design.

OK, so...there it is.  For those of you who know what's going on with
Turbocell from the new Proxim, you probably know that I'm not happy 
as they
have set out to discontinue the Turbocell client software.  So I will 
soon
have to purchase new AP's and shift some customers around because I 
won't be


able to purchase Turbocell-based devices.  That's the word from Proxim.
So...anyone heard any differently?  I've also asked Proxim if we can
'downgrade' our Turbocell products to 802.11b and they are saying 'no'.

It's a you-know-what sandwich from which I'd rather not take a bite.

Does anyone feel my pain?  Any way around these issues aside from 
replacing

CPE?

I like the Imagestream product as well.  It is a really top-notch 
solution for what was originally requested.  I would (like you) have 
no trouble recommending this product.  (I still would say for this 
application, MT would probably work as well for just a little less 
money.)
