[WISPA] unknown password on Stratex XP4?

2008-03-19 Thread Jon Langeler
Kudos to who can answer this! We have an 18GHz XP4 plus link with the 
SNMP card option deployed for years. However we never got the 
login/password for the VTY port (didn't know it would be an issue until 
now). This link might be from that larger wireless copmany that went 
bankrupt some years ago... Any ideas on how to reset/default these 
things. There's a reset button on the card itself, but holding it down 
doesn't seem to do anything but cycle power as far as we can tell. Thanks!

Re: [WISPA] Intel-based 4-port Fast Ethernet Card - StarOS

2008-03-19 Thread Anthony R. Mattke
Honestly, My core is 100% ImageStream Routers. I have no problem 
trusting them to run, day in, day out, 100%

As far as Microtik goes, I'm curious about the question that got pushed 
aside, what do they use for Dynamic routing? Quagga? Zebra? I ask 
because from what I've heard they're violating open source licensing 
with their MPLS implementation. I can't remember from who or where, and 
honestly I've never touched a Microtik, but someone expressed grave 
concern for their licensing. I personally would do more digging on that 
before I ever bought one of their products

Just my 2p,

-Tony

 What does MT do that Star doesn't do in the routing arena?
 I'll add that both platforms have the same flaw.  They use 
 OpenSource, but then close the system. Seems kind of opposite the purpose.
 On a possitive note, I have to say, Mikrotik has really innovated 
 their platform, with a lot of their own code and solutions, to solve 
 problems that couldn't be solved using the previous alternative 
 popular open source apps usually used for those purposes.  My hats 
 goes off  to them.

 But the risk that keeps popping up is...  They aren't Cisco, in the 
 terms of 1000's of top tier people to research and support 
 development of their platform. Can we trust MT's or any small 
 player's proprietary code, for the long haul?  In the Open Source 
 world, there is a clear answer to that, make it open source, and if 
 the developer stops maintaining it, there is a way to get someone to 
 take over maintaining it, without loosing the investment into the platform.

 I'm not saying companies like MT and STAROS should make their 
 proprietary code into open source. But what I like is the ability to 
 ADD packages to an existing platform.

 I can give an example, of a monthy ago, when I installed a MT router 
 because , I thought the pretty GUI would make a good impression, but 
 then 24hours later I had to pull it because there was no way for me 
 to test the performance of the link remotely, easilly for my 
 specific situation. I needed Iperf on the router. It was a better 
 choice to use a standard Linux system, basic native routing, because 
 it also enabled Iperf.

 MT and STAROS are two nice products, but this discussion doesn't 
 stop there.

 For example ImageStream, even though a bit more expensive, they 
 provide an Open system. Their OS is maintained and preloaded with a 
 few bells and whistles.  But you CAN LOAD your own code ALSO.

 Then there is Voyeta.  Its based on 2.6 Kernal of Linux, and its 
 100% open source, and give the security of using a maintained OS 
 (for example BGP and QUAGGA fixes). But you can pay extra for 
 maintenance and quicker updates.

 MT and STARTOS, will stay winners for high end WIFI Radio CPE and 
 APs. But when it comes to Core Routers, to stay competitive, they 
 really need to open the platform, and allow third party modules to 
 be loaded by owners or developers.  Sure, there is the arguement 
 that CISCO DOESNT DO  THAT, but they aren't Cisco.

FYI... Alvarion is shipping a DC power supply that supports all of the VL and

It accepts 12-28VDC at 7A max and outputs 55VDC at 1A. It might help all of the

Hi Mike. How are you?

Yes we do for VL, not BNETB. It is based on the BS-SH chassis. You would order 
a BS-PS-VL-48 and the appropriate chassis radios. I do not have a -48vdc 
stand-alone supply though. Just the one I mentioned earlier.

FYI we had a 11-28vDC input to 48vDC output unit made for the wind/solar
power design:

s_id/247

While there is some energy loss in the conversion the overall cost and
quality of a 12vDC works out better than using a pure 48vDC when you
consider one could use this design to power other non-48vDC systems.

I think Paul Gipe is a respected name in wind. I was looking at his  
site over the weekend, he has an older review of the Air-X, he seemed  
to think it should really be rated as a 200 watt generator.
http://www.wind-works.org/articles/sm_AirXtest.html
(I see the company has a newer model out now called the Air Breeze,  
rated at 200watts)

He also links to another test site: http://www.detronics.net/ 
airx_report.pdfThey have another report that lists the advantages  
of running a combination of wind+solar to balance things out over the  
year. But I think this is highly variable, depending on an area's  
sunshine and windspeed.

Lucaya has complicated things for me by requiring 48V on their new  
radios. (I was just going to run radios directly off 24V batteries)  
Does anyone know about the Powerstream PST-DC2448 (converts DC 24 -  
48V)  http://www.powerstream.com/dc12-48.htm

Or suggestions on other reasonable ways to keep radios running for  
several days of no power?  All my sites have grid power so far, I've  
decided that my best investment is in batteries.

 At 9500ft the air is pretty thin and you'll get maximum about 70% the

 sea level air density.  The plus side is that you may be in the clouds
 part of the time and enjoy some air laden with moisture.

 I agree. Wind turbines really only produce about 50% of what they
 claim (even at full wind speed). You will need 4 or 6 of that size
 wind turbine to keep things running.

Kudos to who can answer this! We have an 18GHz XP4 plus link with the 
SNMP card option deployed for years. However we never got the 
login/password for the VTY port (didn't know it would be an issue until 
now). This link might be from that larger wireless copmany that went 
bankrupt some years ago... Any ideas on how to reset/default these 
things. There's a reset button on the card itself, but holding it down 
doesn't seem to do anything but cycle power as far as we can tell.
Thanks!

[WISPA] FCC Approves New Broadband Mapping Plan

2008-03-19 Thread George Rogato
http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20080319/tc_pcworld/143619;_ylt=Arm6Nh.9uPFRIzMCaVig6nMjtBAF

The new plan would measure broadband availability by Census tract, a 
geographic area that's typically significantly smaller than a Zip Code. 
And the agency will break out five speed tiers in its upcoming broadband 
reports, the lowest tier being 200K bps to 768K bps and the fastest tier 
more than 6M bps.

At least they are making an effort

Re: [WISPA] ISPCON

2008-03-19 Thread Chuck Bartosch
Brian,

I think it is worth every penny to go at least once a year if you  
count the business ideas and interchange you get when meeting some of  
your fellow owners, even aside from the value of the educational  
sessions. There's stuff that gets discussed that just doesn't come up  
in email, or doesn't come up in the same way in email. It's made more  
than a $700 difference for me in my business. It's also amazing how  
nice a lot of these folks are when you get to meet them in person.

I think you can just do the show floor (which is free or close to  
free iirc), but you're likely to miss a lot not being in sessions  
with most everyone else since many conversations are sparked by the  
topics at hand or between sessions. But going and missing he sessions  
is better than not going at all IMHO.

Chuck

 Everyone, HYPERLINK http://www.ispcon.com/ISPCON is rapidly  
 approaching even though winter seems to keep coming. WISPA is  
 planning a “WISPA Powered” track with a full slate of speakers at  
 this event. This is one of two Wireless tracks at ISPCON. WISPA  
 will also be holding our WISPA Reception on May 13th at 6:30 pm.  
 This event will be sponsored by HYPERLINK http:// 
 www.imagestream.com/Imagestream and HYPERLINK http:// 
 www.powercode.com/Powercode. We are also planning a WISPA “Jam  
 Session” this year and will invite attendees who are musically  
 talented to bring their instruments and play to everyone’s  
 enjoyment. This event will be sponsored by HYPERLINK http:// 
 www.mikrotik.com/Mikrotik. Being in Chicago this spring, we  
 expect a very good turnout of vendors and operators. We are  
 planning accordingly as last fall’s reception had an overflow of  
 attendance into the hallway. We are asking for a larger room this  
 time to accommodate a larger expected crowd given the more  
 centrally located venue of Chicago. I will be accepting WISPA  
 Shirt orders again this year. I plan on making the order on April  
 20th and need to have all orders in by April 15th. Please send me  
 your shirt size, color and number of shirts by this date. These  
 will be a nice button down dual blend shirt with the WISPA logo  
 embroidered. I have considered adding ISPCON Chicago 2008 below  
 the logo if enough people desire it, so let me know. Assuming  
 there have been no price increases, I anticipate the cost of the  
 shirts will be $42 picked up at the show or $47 if shipped to  
 your location. We will hold a raffle again this year and I have  
 asked vendors to consider donating door prizes for this event at  
 our reception. We hope many of you will consider attending this  
 spring as we feel you will definitely get your money’s worth. I  
 would like to get an idea of how many WISPA readers and members  
 will be in attendance, so please RSVP ASAP so that we can begin  
 to get an idea on the head count planning on attending. Please  
 let me know how many people from your company will be there. Last  
 fall, many vendors donated some very nice door prizes including  
 HYPERLINK http://www.alvarion.com/Alvarion with a Full B100  
 link listing at $7990. Many thanks to all the vendors who  
 participated last fall and to Patrick Leary and Alvarion for  
 their very nice doorprize. Respectfully, Rick Harnish Vice
