[WISPA] ISPCON Notes

2007-10-17 Thread Rick Harnish
WISPA held its biannual reception at ISPCON last night.  Attendance was
fabulous with a crowd that reached overcapacity for the room we had
reserved.  We want to thank all members, potential members and vendors who
came to the reception and shared this time with us.  The highlight of the
evening was the announcement of the WISPA Outstanding WISP Operator of the
Year Award.  President Matt Larsen made this presentation following an
outstanding speech about WISPA, our accomplishments and our goals for the
future.  This year’s winner was Travis Johnson of IDA.Net.  Travis received
a very nice plaque for his accomplishments of serving around 4000 clients in
the rough terrain of Idaho.  Our sincere congratulations go out to Travis,
his staff and his family.  Great Job!

 

We also want to thank Imagestream and Powercode for sponsoring the
reception.  Without vendor support, many events such as this would not be
possible.  Special thanks to JC Utter and John Wright for stepping up to the
plate this year.

 

We also held a raffle at the end of the reception.  Doorprizes were donated
by many vendors and the winners are listed below.  Thanks to all the vendors
who supported this raffle.

RE: [WISPA] 20ft mast mount

2007-10-17 Thread Mark McElvy
I use channelmaster 30ft telescopic masts (actually about 27') I use a
foot that bolts to the roof and have a socket for the bottom of the pole
and swivels to allow you stand the mast up. I then guy it to 4 eyebolts
screwed into roof rafters and sealed well with silicone or roof tar.
Works great.

Subject: [WISPA] 20ft mast mount

What is the best prduct/method for this isntallation?

1.Must have a Mast that extends 20ft-25ft beyind the peak of the roof.
2. The roof is a Metal pitched roof.  Every 18 there is a lip where the

metal sheets overlap, creating a channel vertically for rain to slide
down. 
The pitch is minimal, almost flat, about 5ft rise from edge to center
peak, 
which is about 75ft wide.
3. The backwall to the ground pavement (2 stories) is also a metal,
which 
has mountable space up top, but loading shop door underneith along the
first 
story of wall.
4. Will be mounting a 12 or smaller panel antenna, fed with Coax.

My thought is I'd either use some sort of Tri-pod mount, and fasten
straight 
down onto the roof Peak, about 5-10ft from the back edge. Then use 3 Guy

wires spread equally around all sides, such as fasten to peak, and two
to 
the roof's edges.
Alternatively, I could use M-Mounts to the wall, with up to 10feet of 
cantelever leverage below peak, but then I would not be able to put guy 
wires equally on three sides.  (As there would be nothing to tie to on
the 
side over the edge of wall. (Nothing can extend to the ground because of
Car 
Traffic entering into the shop from the back.

So what is the best way to mount?

Is there a Tri-pod peak mount designed for 20-25ft and guy wires? Is
there a 
support rod option that can get rid of the need to have Guy wires
equally on 
all side, if used wall M mounts?

Is this just a combination of the standard Rohn Telescoping Mast with a 
standard Rohn Tri-pod?  Any Best practices for securing Tri-pod down
onto 
Metal Roof?

If any vendors have a solution for this, please hit me offlist, for 
immediate purchase.

PS. in the past, for this type install, I'd mount too wall, extend the
pole 
down to the ground, with concrete at the base, but not an option for
this 
job, to go to ground level.

Thanks.

Rick,

Don't forget the late entry of a full BreezeNET B100 link that went to
WISPER Wireless Internet in Belleville, IL by the draw of Mike Delp's
card. That thing lists for $7,990. Thanks for allowing Alvarion to
donate the link to the raffle at the last minute.

Mike, if I see it on eBay I'll break your legs! :)

Matt Larson has one up now and he told me last night the link is over 30
miles and it is pulling over 20 mbps without blinking and that it has
been true set-and-forget.

Rudy, Jeff, George, Mac, J.C., Matt, Jack, Rick, Dave, et all...it was
great to see you last night. The reception was absolutely packed. Nice
job and thanks to Powercode and ImageStream for stepping up to sponsor
it.

Stating that the crowd was overcapacity is an understatement. There was
standing room only both in the room and outside in the hallway. Further,
many people didn't stay because there was no room.

Additionally, the folks who put together the booth and arranged for WISP
Member ribbons on our badges did an awesome job. The booth made it clear
what WISP was about and the benefits of joining. The messaging was right
on and I think the public perception generated by this event is going to
be tremendous.

Patrick,

Thanks for clarifying the true value of the generous donation that Alvarion
made.  I did have that on the list below.  If I misstated it, I apologize.
It was great to see you to, I'm only sorry I didn't have more time to talk
to you.  You looked like you were feeling much better than last year.

Thanks, 
Rick

Don't forget the late entry of a full BreezeNET B100 link that went to
WISPER Wireless Internet in Belleville, IL by the draw of Mike Delp's
card. That thing lists for $7,990. Thanks for allowing Alvarion to
donate the link to the raffle at the last minute.

Mike, if I see it on eBay I'll break your legs! :)

Matt Larson has one up now and he told me last night the link is over 30
miles and it is pulling over 20 mbps without blinking and that it has
been true set-and-forget.

WISPA held its biannual reception at ISPCON last night.  Attendance was
fabulous with a crowd that reached overcapacity for the room we had
reserved.  We want to thank all members, potential members and vendors
who
came to the reception and shared this time with us.  The highlight of
the
evening was the announcement of the WISPA Outstanding WISP Operator of
the
Year Award.  President Matt Larsen made this presentation following an
outstanding speech about WISPA, our accomplishments and our goals for
the
future.  This year's winner was Travis Johnson of IDA.Net.  Travis
received
a very nice plaque for his accomplishments of serving around 4000
clients in
the rough terrain of Idaho.  Our sincere congratulations go out to
Travis,
his staff and his family.  Great Job!

 

We also want to thank Imagestream and Powercode for sponsoring the
reception.  Without vendor support, many events such as this would not

Re: [WISPA] Re:Keynote

2007-10-17 Thread David Sovereen
I thought it was excellent.  He's a very interesting speaker and I 
thoroughly enjoy what he has to say, as he has a very comprehensive and 
cohesive view of the market that provokes a lot of thought.


Memorable insights:

1.  There are too many backbone providers out there.  Back in the day, there 
were over 100.  Today, there are maybe 12 or so nationally that are still 
significant.  He thinks that number needs to come down to 4 in order for all 
of them to be viable.


2.  Interesting thoughts on telecome deregulation.  Said the cable and phone 
companies are still monopolies and are the cause of limited bandwidth.  They 
have a vested interest in keeping bandwidth scarce and expensive as voice 
and video are simply applications that run over IP.  Since voice and video 
are the breadwinners for telephone and cable companies, they want to limit 
broadband speeds and availability as much as possible so they can continue 
to make their better margin revenues on those services.  If bandwidth were 
super accessible and super affordable, voice and video would just be an 
application on the net and those revenues would disappear.  In his 
pie-in-the-sky ideal world, cable and telephone companies would be reduced 
to being nothing more than wholesale transport companies, would be forced to 
open those networks to independent, retail operators, and should be assured 
a reasonable return on investment and operations... say 12%, for 
shareholders.  Of course, this will never happen.  He gave examples of where 
this type of structure has been implemented in other areas of the world and 
has worked.


3.  Talked about why Cogent does Ethernet.  How there are nearly 2 billion 
(??) ethernet ports on the planet, more than anything else, they are low 
cost, and that makes sense for getting bandwidth to the masses.  GigE ports 
are available at BestBuy for under $100.  OC-3/12/48 ports are available 
only in limited form at very expensive prices.  So Ethernet makes sense for 
economic distribution of bandwidth.


4.  Wireless is bandwidth-limited.  Only so much spectrum.  As a result, 
will never be able to compete with line-based technologies, where terahertz 
of bandwidth are available over fiber optics.


5.  Talked about universal service and universal availability.  Subsidies 
need to go.  Let the market pay to deliver service based on real costs.  In 
his view of the country, probably 99% of the population can be covered with 
market-priced services, and the remaining 1% of people who live on 
mountain-tops, deserts, and jungles where it doesn't make economic sense to 
deliver service should simply not be served.  Let them move.


There was a lot more.  He packed a lot of thought into a short period of 
time.  His keynote was the most interesting and enjoyed I've heard at an 
ISPCON in a very long time, maybe ever.


Dave
