 There is a lot of products out there now.

 Quite a few are members of wispa and I don't want to give a more 
 favorable endorsement of one of the other.

 I see a lot of wisps happy with the products they use and thats a 
 great thing. I think there is no better time as up till now for 
 choices in products that actually work reliably right out of the box.
 But, I don't believe there is a best and the rest worse, I think it's 
 the product that fits your business. And a different product for each 
 specific need.

 Having said all that, I use Star and have no issues with it.

 The upgrade software versions that some one else mentioned, is what 
 you expect for a product that never stops trying to make itself 
 better.
 I have systems of star from 6 years back working flawless and systems 
 all the way up to the last version working that are ultra stable.
 The latest version in beta 1.4.x is too new for me to mess with. But 
 when it gets to maturity, I will probably upgrade to it.

 The newest versions have the most advanced features. Those features 
 when added have to have the bugs worked out to get to stable. Only 
 way that happens is releasing a broken product and letting the 
 testers find the problems, so they can fix them.

 Support is all on the forums, and really, if you are used to 
 programing a radio and a router you should have no problems 
 programing and configuring a star ap. You just have to be familiar 
 with routing.

 If a person is not familiar with configuring a router then they most 
 likely will run into problems and need forum help.

 The Star-os guys are there for feedback on real issues and bugs and 
 deficiencies in their product.
 Helping people figure out how to make to radios talk to each other or 
 config ospf bgp or something like that is above and beyond the 
 manufacturer's responsibility.

 They do offer advice and help and I've seen countless times where 
 they have personally logged into their wisps systems to help them 
 out.

 Some of the very best support comes from the other users on the 
 forums.

 I don't sell anything and I don't make anything from giving this 
 positive feedback.

 I just hate to see the wrong opinion be touted about a good product 
 that many of us use.

I know in MY case I don't advertise much at all.  Our growth already nearly

I have seen several HP laptops - nothing really good or bad about them,
 they're just out there.

 I am a die hard fan of Thinkpad,  Thinkpads for me.  Thinkpad moved their
 manufacturing half to Lenovo.

 I just bought our new employee a $500 Lenovo from Systemax/Infotel and I'm
 quite impressed.  There are touch sensitive buttons for media, the screen
 has NO latch to break (it's magnetic or part of the hinge).  The keyboard
 isn't quite Thinkpad goodness but is still better then most.  The screen 
 is
 awfully reflective.  Battery LEDs on the chassis itself is also a bonus.
 Great specs for an installer.  Also I should note Butch Evans has used a
 Lenovo for years - he has proven his laptop works quite well as a Linux
 workstation.  I only wish I could make that leap.

 For $500 I couldn't be happier - I need to get one myself (ethernet port
 fried) but I need it dock capable.  Not sure if Lenovo offers that.

E-zy.net has SSH and Telnet enabled by default.

We just want to make sure the service is available when you need it, so
you do not end up wishing you had enabled it before.

Of course you have to make sure you change your passwords but this counts

 I agree... Just put one up and try it.  Don't be afraid of the learning
 curve.  The performance and flexibility is outstanding.

 Also, there's alot to be said about NOT having a web interface.  I can't
 tell you how many times I've done this:

 1.  Realized I screwed up the gateway address or IP address on the CPE.
 2.  ssh into the AP, put and IP address on the wireless interface that
 client is associated with, ssh TO the client FROM the AP (not from my
 workstation).
 3.  Been on my merry way and not have had a truck roll.

 We use methods like these to prevent truck rolls over  over again.

 I wish that the other, mainstream product manufacturers would get a clue
 about this ability.  You can essentially move about your network using
 ssh,
 hopping from one device to another until you can reach the device you
 want.
 You can ssh from your computer or PDA to your border router, then ssh from
 there to wherever on your network you want to go.

 Also with this method, it is possible to take a brand new AP to a tower
 site, set to defaults (with default IP address) and have the guys back at
 the office reach it and configure it.  VERY POWERFUL!!

 I say let go of the web interface.  I did and I'm glad I did.  My name is

Also, should have brought this up sooner.  Hi gain omni antennas suck swamp

8dB omni's, even then I almost always put electrical downtilt on them (you 
buy them with it).

I'll second Marlon.  Sectorize your access points.  3 120° units will
lower your noise floor by 1/3 (assuming all your noise is equal

 We have had 2.4Ghz running on one of our towers since early 2001.  About 
 2
 years ago the noise floor got bad and we moved from a vertical omni to a
 horizontal omni.  That worked very well for the 20 clients we were 
 serving
 off it.  Within the last month, we are again having problems with noise.
 We've replaced the antenna with a lower gain horizontal omni, replaced
 cables and even replaced the AP itself.  Currently, this is a RB411AH 
 with
 XR2 AP running off a 13db Omni.  I have a band-pass filter that is 
 blocking
 everything but channel 1.  That has helped, but still seeing lots of 
 noise
 and clients dropping on and off.  Would moving to horizontal sectors help
 the problem, or would i be better off just dumping 2.4 for something 
 else?
  I'd hate for us to spend money on 4 sectors and 3 new APs to come up 
 with
 the same results.  Any advice?

 I've mentioned this before but I think the only spectrum you can use to do
 this would be 60GHz.  Obvously, very short range but high speed.  I'm 
 pretty
 sure 24GHz can only be used for PTP links.  But, could be used as your
 backhaul to your 60GHz repeater site.  I don't know if this would work 
 with
 omni antennas but you could develop a small 120 degree sector I'm sure.

Hello Dimitri

Congradts to you and your partners on developing a product that wisps 
can use to their advantage.

I don't think we have seen an introduction of you and your compay on the 
wispa lists.

Why don't you take this time to introduce yourself, and your company and 
products to the list.

For those who don't know Dimitri, he is a long time wisp who used to be 
very active on these various wisp lists.
I'm sure developing his product and company has minimized  his 
socializing  on the various lists.

Re: [WISPA] Thinking out of the box ... Gigabit PTMP? Possible solution that could be done today.

2009-02-09 Thread Brian Webster
So I have been thinking about this idea and here's what could be done.
Disclaimer: This won't be sub $100 CPE and it won't scale economically for
rural areas. This is metro market high customer density stuff.

The 24 GHz band has 250 MHz of spectrum available as unlicensed (available
today).
It is designated for PTP.
Navini and SkyPilot have successfully won arguments with the FCC to get
their multipoint systems certified as PTP using logic that only one client
talks to the base at one time.
The JRC system is TDD and even more able to make the argument that only one
base and CPE are talking on any frequency at one time.
The JRC system can deliver up to 46 mb throughput per channel. Channels are
26 MHz wide, so you could easily build up a 6 sector or more system.
Each JRC base station/sector can support 239 CPE's.
The product is available today and would only have to be moved down from the
26 GHz they use it on in Japan (JRC has already stated they can do this).
The challenge is getting the units FCC certified for use in the 24 GHz band
as a PTP system.
If a person or group hired the lab/lawyer who got Navini and SkyPilot
approved they should have a good shot at getting this done.
The FCC has already set precedent to do this.
TDD is more easily argued that it is a PTP system on any given frequency at
any given time.
24 GHz is a signal that is easily contained and manageable from a noise
perspective.
There are no consumer level devices operating in this band.

This band is available today, no waiting for public policy and political
whims to make spectrum available. This would be innovation. It could be done
so fast that pundits or competitors could not use their political influence
to thwart the effort. This could happen before they knew what hit them.

Trees and buildings will be an issue as is distance with the propagation,
but where else can you try to make something like this work today with
already developed product and 250 MHz of spectrum? It's certainly an idea
worth considering and could compete for high bandwidth customers in metro
markets against cable and fiber.

You decide, is the glass half empty or half full?

Re: [WISPA] Senate to cut Rural Broadband from Stimulus Bill!

2009-02-09 Thread Steve Smith
I agree with John's summary of how it works.

If you want to see the current Senate version go to www.senate.gov

On the right you will see a link for active legislation.

Under the popular titles you can see the current version plus the
amendments.

The combined House/Senate version is what matters and the conference
committee report (merged bills) can't be written until the Senate passes its
version.

From everything I read though there will be a bias towards projects that can
be started within 45 days of the passage of the legislation.  So have your
projects engineered and ready or if you don't want any in your region then
make sure NTIA and RUS know that you already provide advanced services.  I
kind of doubt anyone in the nation provides what they have in mind for fiber
broadband speeds.  The House version called for fiber networks to provide
45mb down 15 mb up and the Senate version calls 100mb down and 20mb up.
For wireless the House calls for 3 mb down and 1 mb up.  Senate says 3 mb
down and 768 k up.

I believe this is a move that is happening to make the House and Senate
bills more closely aligned. Steve Coran also stated similar thoughts
regarding this move. The House bill had $6 Billion for broadband. The Senate
package allocated $9 Billion. Once both bills pass they must go to Committee
for a new version to be voted on by both House and Senate. Clearly the
dollar amounts must meet in the middle which means that the Senate ir
proactively getting their borabdand dollar amounts in line with what has
already passed the House. I know it is comfusing but creating new laws is
something that is a little tough on purpose so as to stop knee-jerk
legislative actions, or at least I think that is the reason behind the
convoluted steps created by the process. Some of my high school civics

GigabitPTMP? Possible solution that could be done today.

So I have been thinking about this idea and here's what could be done.
Disclaimer: This won't be sub $100 CPE and it won't scale economically
for rural areas. This is metro market high customer density stuff.

The 24 GHz band has 250 MHz of spectrum available as unlicensed
(available today).
It is designated for PTP.
Navini and SkyPilot have successfully won arguments with the FCC to get
their multipoint systems certified as PTP using logic that only one
client talks to the base at one time.
The JRC system is TDD and even more able to make the argument that only
one base and CPE are talking on any frequency at one time.
The JRC system can deliver up to 46 mb throughput per channel. Channels
are
26 MHz wide, so you could easily build up a 6 sector or more system.
Each JRC base station/sector can support 239 CPE's.
The product is available today and would only have to be moved down from
the
26 GHz they use it on in Japan (JRC has already stated they can do
this).
The challenge is getting the units FCC certified for use in the 24 GHz
band as a PTP system.
If a person or group hired the lab/lawyer who got Navini and SkyPilot
approved they should have a good shot at getting this done.
The FCC has already set precedent to do this.
TDD is more easily argued that it is a PTP system on any given frequency
at any given time.
24 GHz is a signal that is easily contained and manageable from a noise
perspective.
There are no consumer level devices operating in this band.

This band is available today, no waiting for public policy and political
whims to make spectrum available. This would be innovation. It could be
done so fast that pundits or competitors could not use their political
influence to thwart the effort. This could happen before they knew what
hit them.

Trees and buildings will be an issue as is distance with the
propagation, but where else can you try to make something like this work
today with already developed product and 250 MHz of spectrum? It's
certainly an idea worth considering and could compete for high bandwidth
customers in metro markets against cable and fiber.

You decide, is the glass half empty or half full?

Hello,

I am all for it.  You have to pick the right equipment/spectrum for
the right tower/area.  I have at least 10 maybe more towers that have about
1000+ potential customers within about 1.5 miles of the tower.  It would
allow me to use the current 2.4, 5.2-5.8 on other towers for the clients I
could not get or at least have less AP in those bands on these towers.

At best guess what would be the range of the spectrum?

Well if this is certified as a PTP system then it would be allowed to run
under those power levels. I have seen manufacturer claims for 24 GHz PTP
systems of 2-3 miles and up to 5 miles at lower throughput. The rain fade
for any given market is going to have a lot more to do with that however.

Like Jack suggests, you really need to check with Verizon.

I'm pretty sure there might be potential features that Sprint has  
turned on for that phone, that would prevent Verizon from working with  
it.  For instance, I had an older Verizon phone that didn't include  
location features and Verizon refused to turn it on.  (even though the  
phone I was using was even older and didn't include location tracking  
either)

Eighteen months ago Verizon said they were moving to a more open  
system, but I don't think they have moved very far in that direction  
yet.

Re: [WISPA] 3.65ghz sector

2009-02-09 Thread Eric Albert
Hi Gino,

I am glad to be here. Thanks much. 

When you follow the link I sent earlier (I got it from www.wispa.org)
you will get three items in return; a ROI white paper that covers most
of your questions from below, a datasheet on the product line and a link
to a video that a partner put together detailing a drive test. Very cool
stuff. 

Check the link out and if you have unanswered questions please let me
know.

One more note. A few months back we put out an excellent guide on how to
obtain the 3.65 license from the FCC. It was authored by a former
Alvarion person who is no stranger to the list. (Gotta give credit where
credit is due, we are still friends.)If anyone needs a hand on how to
get authorized for the band, whether you are implementing our gear or
the next guy's, this is the place to start.

http://www.alvarion.com/3650licenseguidedownload/?ref=WISPA.orgsource_t
ype=Text

For both iterations of our 3.65 product line you do not need an ASN.
DHCP for the CPE broadcast domain is definitely a good idea. We don't
require DHCP to manage the network. 

As in any network an NMS is always a good idea. I have never met a
doctor that does not carry a stethoscope. Network visibility, trending,
alarming, software updates are all important tasks any operator faces.
However, we do not require an NMS right out of the gate. You could
migrate to our own NMS called Alvaristar as well as a configuration tool
called Alvaricraft. Since we support SNMP you could use your own tools
already in place as well.  

I hope this helps folks.

That's because, while finishing up the other stuff Rick Harnish 
mentioned, I made a couple typos and accidentally unsubscribed everyone. 
Twice. I am a human wrecking ball, apparently.

Everyone has been re-added, and I apologize for the confusion.

Re: [WISPA] [Motorola II] OT: Redline AN50e QoS

2009-02-09 Thread Josh Luthman
You can get a better answer from sup...@redlinecommunications.com (it's VERY
good and free, don't worry) but to my knowledge it's about as capable (in
this respect) as a Dlink switch from Walmart.  Packet is a packet to them.

I run VoIP over my network over several AN50s.  I know when I was stuck at
one tower site I was on the phone for most of the day going through 4 links
of AN50s and MikroTik backhaul.

Though I have to admit I have had customers use the same phone on a cable
connection with 5m/384k and some one got into their linksys and used all of
the connection for p2p/torrents.  It merely caused a good 2-3 second delay
in the conversation, but fine otherwise.

Thanks for stating the obvious. Unfortunately, these are not my BH's but 
a customer who's on a tight budget. Congestion isn't normally a problem, 
but when/if it is, the feature set in question may become quite useful. 
Per your suggestion, I've contacted Redline support. Thank you for your 
input.

Hi Gino,

I am glad to be here. Thanks much. 

When you follow the link I sent earlier (I got it from www.wispa.org)
you will get three items in return; a ROI white paper that covers most
of your questions from below, a datasheet on the product line and a link
to a video that a partner put together detailing a drive test. Very cool
stuff. 

Check the link out and if you have unanswered questions please let me
know.

One more note. A few months back we put out an excellent guide on how to
obtain the 3.65 license from the FCC. It was authored by a former
Alvarion person who is no stranger to the list. (Gotta give credit where
credit is due, we are still friends.)If anyone needs a hand on how to
get authorized for the band, whether you are implementing our gear or
the next guy's, this is the place to start.

http://www.alvarion.com/3650licenseguidedownload/?ref=WISPA.orgsource_t
ype=Text

For both iterations of our 3.65 product line you do not need an ASN.
DHCP for the CPE broadcast domain is definitely a good idea. We don't
require DHCP to manage the network. 

As in any network an NMS is always a good idea. I have never met a
doctor that does not carry a stethoscope. Network visibility, trending,
alarming, software updates are all important tasks any operator faces.
However, we do not require an NMS right out of the gate. You could
migrate to our own NMS called Alvaristar as well as a configuration tool
called Alvaricraft. Since we support SNMP you could use your own tools
already in place as well.  

I hope this helps folks.

Do you mean manufacture them and ship them out so all you need to do is bolt
and configure?

I know several vendors will do this.  Eje of Wisp Router or Mike at TenX can
give you a definite answer as far as what they ship you.  I do all my own
enclosures - if there is something wrong I can only yell at myself for
making the mistake.

Of late, I've been using Jeffco SoHo (www.jeffcosoho.com/catalog) partly 
because they're only a hundred miles away, and even ground shipping arrives the 
next day. They also have a couple Mikrotik-certified techs on the payroll, and 
offer a discount to WISPA members. Yes, you can buy the stuff yourself and 
assemble it in-house, but to me it's worth a small premium to not have to do 
the boring stuff. 
I think they also offer some FCC-certified systems, if you're concerned about

You might spend a good 50 dollars in parts that you can reuse between
enclosures for every few or you can pay a vendor to do it (marked up
of course).

If you'd like my full list of parts I buy/use for every AP let me know.

Yes we do this. .  Just shoot us a call or order on-line.

Something to keep in mind, we test, upgrade, and verify operations 
before they leave.  Nothing sux worse then putting in a link or AP, and 
finding out a 5 buck part does not work and then have to do another

We might not have it as a single order sku but if you order all items we will 
assemble it for you free of charge. 

We have a few complete sku's premade in our system as well. 

As you might be aware as well we have certified techs plus of course myself

If you purchase all items for a complete unit we will assemble it free of 
charge. This is a service we been doing ever since we started selling MikroTik 
5 years ago. We will do that even for StarOS or IkarusOS base solution as long 
as all parts and licenses to make a complete system is purchased at once from 
us. We also offer preconfiguration (but for a small charge) if you want a true 
plug and play solution ready to go when you receive the units.

That's why you test on the ground before you go up...  who knows what 
happened in UPS.

 Man, I have seen some small WISPs, doing their second tower, buy all of
 the stuff, and not know they screwed up the UFL or something stupid like
 that.  Then they can't afford to replace the failed 5 bucks, due to the
 cost of the tower climb.!

Re: [WISPA] AP using Mikrotik Routerboard

2009-02-09 Thread Dennis Burgess - LinkTechs
Typically its a build issue.  Screwed on things too tight, etc.  Just 
stupid things.  Seen people not secure the radio cards before taking 
them up the tower etc.   We have been building these things for  over 4 
years, and we have 532s that have been up and running for 3!  wow, just 
thought about that, scarry!

Re: [WISPA] AP using Mikrotik Routerboard

2009-02-09 Thread Dennis Burgess - LinkTechs
Not wishing to say anyone does a better job or worse.  One of the 
biggest mistakes I have seen is the plastic standoffs.  Not only do they 
fail, but they are not grounding the board typically!  I see lots of 
people using the little 1/2 moon power injectors.  They are super cheap, 
and by the way, they are super cheap.  We use POE with Surge Suppression 
Injectors.   You would be surprised how often they protect gear. 

We have in radio Ethernet surge units as well.  we have got units back 
with this ethernet surge unit melted down to goo..  ya goo.  Unplugged 
it, and plugged the radio right into the POE, well a new one, and bingo 
powers right back on! 

All of these things along with the build quality.  If you get free 
builds, that don't mean its good or proper, if you pay for your builds, 
same difference.  compare everyone!
