Re: [WISPA] Looking for opinions on a proposal for PTMP in 6Ghz Part 101 spectrum

2017-06-07 Thread Blair Davis
No Omni's!

65deg max antenna beam pattern?

That kills all the consumer gear right there...  And cell phones.

And kills the Cable Co hanging PoP's.

NN... with the License # REQUIRED for a distributor to sell gear... With 
penalty's... say 200% of the gear sold without a license?

How about the gear has to be unlocked, like Mimosa, but also requires 
your NN license number to unlock and register...

Re: [WISPA] Marina Hotspot Setup

We have several resorts and campgrounds and a fairground running

Works well for us.

Looking for some input. When we bought our
  wireless company we inherited a hotspot at a marina. We had to
  manually put in mac addresses in the AP’s in the beginning. It
  was brutal. So few years ago I found Chillifire.net and
  started using them with custom firmware for Rocket M2.
It really a lot of trouble because is there
  is issue they are in New Zealand so we might be down or having
  issues for couple days. Since its custom firmware I cant get
  much help.
Anyway fast forward to now. I was wondering
  what some of you are using at marinas? Ultimately this place
  doesn’t bring in much money as there is only a couple handfuls
  of customers that are there all the time. So I don’t want to
  spend a ton.
My other issue is coverage. That’s my
  biggest complaint there now. We have 1 AP on each covered
  dock. I have a total of 5 2.4 Aps in a small area and noise is
  an issue as well.
 
Have any of you tried the Outdoor Unifi
  with hotspot? If so how are your results?
 
They are only setup to get 4Mb each
I will attach a crude map of what it looks
  like as well.
We have a Rocket M5 at tower with sector.
  Each dock currently has a loco m5 feeding it. Rocket M2 with
  UBNT Omni on the dock. We also tried UBNT Sector and shot
  straight down dock but it didn’t help much really. Docks all
  have metal roof.

While I understand your reasoning, I would disagree. If you could do this, for the security of a WISP, we will shut down all 
Access Points via Deauth attack that my Access Points can see. Also note, I am not talking for the FCC, but for what I believe is 
right, in this case, you can’t own a location or area of the wifi bands, therefore, you can’t cause harmful interference, and a 
deauth attack would be harmful, and interference. 

I can agree that you can detect it and shut it off on a port on your network, but you should not be able to interfere with other 
operations, regardless if it is your property or not. Maybe that’s not the intent from those actions, but it’s clear that if it’s 
not on your network then you can’t do much about it. Now, if they are on your property, sure you can tell them to turn it off or 
leave, but that’s another issue. lol

There is no mention of a blanket refusal. In the FCC citation, the fact that they're charging for Internet access is brought up 
every time the deauthing activity is. 

https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-329743A1.pdf 

https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-14-1444A1.pdf 

In reading that second one, they also keep bringing up that Marriott charged for Internet (and a lot at that). 

"Specifically, such employees had used this capability to prevent users from connecting to the Internet via their own personal 
Wi-Fi networks when these users did not pose a threat to the security of the Gaylord Opryland network or its guests." 

Sounds like security is a viable defense.

I've done a bit of work previously to reverse engineering the 
provisioning mechanism, and I see nothing that would be a problem 
collecting stats via that method. You'd still have to use 
groundcontrol to initially connect/provision the units first to 
exchange SSH keys, and you'd want it to be on a different ip that your 
previous aircontrol server.


A nasty thing about ubnt provisioning... if you replace the server on 
the same ip or a different ip, all of the radios that were previously 
provisioned will always try to connect to the old ip/server, which 
causes quite a bit of arp traffic.


 one thing I'd like to do is create a cleanup tool for that, 
though pssh (parallel ssh) + wireshark helped me clean up that mess 
manually in the past.

For those of you who haven't heard, several of us started a new

project yesterday.

  


https://github.com/esseph/groundcontrol

  


Licensing is tentatively set as falling under GPLv2.

  


We have already been offered code snippets, a dev box, a db server,

and several people have decided to volunteer time to make this 
happen.

  


The initial idea is that the system itself will be free, with a

possibly paid support/features option, or maybe a model similar to

observium where the is a community (free as in beer) version that

comes out every 6mo or so, and a paid version with newer features

and direct support. We're not sure yet, but we want to make this

project accessible and fairly vendor-neutral.

  


If any of you could volunteer time, support, code, documentation,

ideas, etc.it would be greatly appreciated. This is a project by and

for the WISP community. Thank you!

payments (e.g., my pay) by check.  Why not electronically? Because he 
knows the system too well. It turns out that if you open your account 
to make ACH payments, it's trivially easy for someone to take an 
unauthorized payment.  A personal account has 30 or 60 days to catch 
it and undo it, but a business account has two days.  So if somebody 
literally robs you via ACH, you're out the money if you're not 
checking it daily. Corporations with dedicated finance staffs can do 
that; small businesses like us (four partners, no staff) can't.  
Similarly, the cost of electronic payroll-type payments is way too 
high for a small business.


It is insane that the major automation to the US banking system 
(Europe is ahead of us) is to use scanners to pass around pictures of 
checks electronically.  But the system works pretty well for handling 
checks, so once you leave that paradigm, it gets funky fast.  So we 
print checks.  And I then write checks out of my own business account, 
both to pay myself and to pay rent and a few other business expenses.

one of our clients, don't worry about how long the repair lasts.'  and 
'Why should we bother to put a DSLAM out there?  It's only gonna get 
used up by them anyway.' and 'That pair of T1's is more than enough to 
feed that subdivision...  They aren't our users anyway.' and lots more 
similar comments in the trenches tend to make me somewhat skeptical of that.


I won't say that it may not have been a part of it.  I will say, that as 
the workers saw it,  when forced to give away their bread n butter, they 
rightly felt that it wasn't their problem anymore. When I refer to 
workers, I mean anyone who would have been CWA or equivalent.  I'll even 
include lower management.


Prior to Judge Greene, there was an /'esprit de corps'/ among the people 
of the Bell System.  It persisted under Ameritec... for a while.  By the 
time SBC was trying to become ATT all over again, it was gone.  And 
when SBC became att, the employees, as far as I could see, didn't give 
a damn any more.  It became more 'Good enough to get paid.  By the time 
that becomes a problem, I'll be somewhere else...' .  Prior to that, 
people expected to be working on and using the plant forever.  When they 
fixed something, the fix was intended to last longer that the original.

That was the Bell party line, for public consumption, but it wasn't true.

Section 251 (sections of the Communications Act, 47 USC, beginning 
with 2 are in Title II) has the rules for demonopolization of PSTN 
carriers.  They had a de jure monopoly; they still have a natural 
monopoly on mass-market services.  So they have facilities that are a 
necessary inpu to competitive providers. They built their networks 
using rate of return regulation and de jure monopoly status 
(essentially a guarantee of profit) and that put them at the 24 mile 
line in the competitive marathon.


Section 251 says that ILECs specifically and uniquely have to provide 
unbundled network elements at forward-looking cost.  Just what cost 
is is not a simple answer.  Cost is not price.  Cost can be embedded 
direct cost, fully distributed (various methods), long-run 
incremental, total service long-run incremental, total element 
long-run incremental, etc.  Lots of room to argue cost, and that was a 
lot of fun back in the rate case days, to do cost studies and argue 
over details.


Non-ILECs have fewer obligations than ILECs.  There is a separate 
fundamental right of common carriage if a company is deemed a common 
carrier, but the just and reasonable standard is generally enforced 
only to what I call a shocks the conscience level.  No formulas, 
just don't horribly offend the Commission. It is very rarely invoked.


The Bells stopped maintaining their plant because in 1992-1993, they 
transitioned from rate of return regulation to price cap (alternate 
form of) regulation.  Under rate of return, their total profit was a 
percentage (11.25% return was the last number, still in use) of their 
rate base (undepreciated capital plant). So the investment was to 
invest heavily; investing in rural areas paid really well because the 
high cost would be recoverable from urban monopoly ratepayers.  Under 
AFOR, though, some basic service prices are capped but not profits, so 
they could increase profits by reducing costs.  And they sure did!  
AFOR was met by massive layoffs and a general decline in maintenance.  
Accountants running companies devalue the future, so disinvestment 
look good to short term profits, and CEOs live for quarterly bonuses, 
which are not based on how they position the company for 10 years 
out.  Well, 20 years of AFOR and the chickens have come home to 
roost.  The plant is very heavily depreciated, not maintained, and the 
parent companies have put their capital into wireless, which has been 
more profitable lately.  Such is deregulation, helping turn the USA 
into a third world country while rentiers take the money and run.

To Fred's point, the article mentions:
That's because of the way the law and the forbearance provision are 
written; they apparently do not allow for any immaculate ruling where 
the FCC somehow rules the service and carrier of Internet traffic are 
regulated, but not the Internet traffic itself that is precisely what 
defines the service and carrier.




The article is pure garbage.  Read the January ruling of the DC 
Circuit.  It was quite clear that the Computer II framework was 
legal.  And the Telecom Act was meant to memorialize that, not 
overturn it.  The Computer II framework very explicitly held that the 
basic carrier function was regulated while the higher-layer 
enhanced traffic was not.  The reason the FCC keeps getting in 
trouble is that they don't want restore that working model, since it 
would hurt some carriers' fee-fees.


The idea that Title II requires metered pricing makes less sense than 
the average diarrhea that comes from Louis Gohmerts' tuchus. The .0007 
rate is for termination of local telephone calls; it has nothing to do 
with bits or data services.  Whoever wrote the article is either a) an 
utter ignoramus; b) an utterly contemptible liar, or c) both.


There are all sorts of reasons why Title II would break the Internet.  
But applied to the access layer, it would simply mean that ISPs could 
lease DSL for a certain price per line per month, and perhaps a 
certain number of cents per gigabit, but that price would have to be 
just and reasonable in light of its actual cost to provision.


Oh, and Scott Cleland is now a lobbyist for the Bells, a professional

Tim,

In most cases you can split the hot leads on the 240v outlet
into two 120v circuits. There are adapter pigtails for this if
you don't want to hardware it.

From memory, our local hardware store sells these (in the US).

Re: [WISPA] Off topic sorta power question....

2014-11-06 Thread Blair Davis
I've never had a problem doing this.  While I see the theoretical issues 
you state, in practice it works.

The issue you are describing is caused by a defective outlet or wiring 
job.   While it happens, it is no more or less likely than your 117VAC 
outlet having the same issue with it's ground.   If you assume every 
outlet is defective, then you will need isolation transformers everywhere...

US 3 prong 240VAC outlets are wired as hot/hot/neutral with a strap on 
the device grounding the chassis metal to the neutral as a ground.  This 
was standard.  In most areas, new 240VAC outlets are wired as 4 prong 
hot/hot/neutral/ground and new devices are wired with a 4 prong cord. 
Most devices can have a 3 prong cord installed by following the device 
instructions.

 While this should work in theory you cannot assume that
 neutral and ground are the same. The farther you get from the service
 the greater the possibility that neutral varies from ground, and if
 you have a corroded junction somewhere between your location and the
 bonding point
 you can have significant voltage on neutral. Just try and make digital
 equipment work if your feed 5-10 volts AC in on the ground.

 To do this properly requires an isolation transformer to separately
 derive the source and
 a new bonding point or better yet a four wire source pigtail where
 neutral and ground are
 separately presented on the plug. (Be careful about over current
 protection.)

 I've had to do this in a remote locations with 240 V generator.
 I used a one-to-one isolation transformer with a center tap. The
 primary is connected to
 the two hot legs. The secondary center tap is bonded to earth ground
 and both neutral
 and ground originate at that point. 110 is present on either end of
 the secondary relative
 to the center tap.
 The whole thing has to go to a fuse/breaker box for protection. All in
 all if there is
 service anywhere close it's easier and cheaper to hire an electrician
 to drop a 110
 receptacle close by. Fires and/or electrocuted kids/pets are a PR
 problem of the first order.

 A) I completely understand how I can take a single 120v wire from
 leg1 or leg2 of the power source and then take the neutral to both
 neutral and ground of the router power supply and make this work -
 thats easy - but not code.
 B) I also understand how I could take a neutral, a ground and one
 hot wire with voltage anywhere from 110-250v and it will work with
 cloud core power supply. (but not I do not have this configuration
 at source)
 C) I do not understand how you can take two hots and a neutral and
 turn that into anything (just by using a cable) that the router can
 use unless that cable is doing nothing more than what I described
 above in A

 Here is the info on AC power arrangement
 http://www.oempanels.com/what-does-single-and-three-phase-power-mean
 The CCR specs show it having :
 Dualpowersuppliesforredundancy,110-250Vinput,IECconnectors
 which means that, you can use either 110 or 220 or 240 on the same
 power supply.
 All you would have to do is match the power cables...

I don't know, but I am interested in devices that could cache Windows 
update and Apple updates...  But it HAS to be transparent to the end users.


I'd be willing to dedicate hardware and disk space to this  iOS and 
Windows update can often cause major traffic loads...


And, if these updates were stored on a local server at my head end, I'd 
be able to unrestrict traffic to them... making updates run faster... 
looking better in the eyes of my clients...

I've never bothered with the DVR stuff...  just the cams themselves.

All of mine are running 1.1.5 with a script that pushes a .jpg capture 
to an off-site server once a min.


the box of new ones I just looked at have 1.2.0 on them... So, I guess I 
have to see if they can be flashed back to 1.1.5.

Ironically, ISTM that would probably be good for WISPs.  If the FCC 
decides that 10 Mbps is the baseline and areas that don't get it 
become eligible for USF subsidies, areas with WISP unsubsidized 
competitors are among those likely to be hit by subsidized new 
entrants (usually ILECs).  4 Mbps isn't spectacular but other than HD 
video, it is adequate for most applications. Some 5 GHz systems can of 
course go faster than 10 Mbps, but it would be a real crunch on 900 
MHz and TVWS networks, low frequencies needed in wooded areas.

Re: [WISPA] Favorite replacement for UBNT zip ties?

2014-04-28 Thread Blair Davis
Because NanoStation's, Loco's, Rocket dishes, PowerBridges and NanoBeams 
all have a place depending on what you are doing?


Even AirGrids and Bullets have value for some things

Just because they put them in the box, it doesn't mean you have to

But that is exactly the point.  Been waiting for NanoBeam M2 for a while 
now.


Many locations, I don't need the extra gain or wind load.

Others, the Nano or Loco is less intrusive.

I simply see that having more gain choices is good...   In 2.4GHz we now 
have 8,11,18 and 24db in dual polarity, 16 and 20db in single polarity.


I would love to see a NanoBeam in M365.   Here we have 13db for the 
NanoStation, 20 db for the PowerBridg, 21db for the NanoBridge, 26db for 
the RocketDish.  The problem is, the PowerBridge M365 is crazy expensive 
and the NanoBridge M365 looks like cra...

Re: [WISPA] Solar powered repeater kit

2014-04-19 Thread Blair Davis
Well, here, my power company simply says the equipment must be approved 
under these two standards...  I have to show them the inverter and it's 
nameplate.

I put in my own transfer switch and generator.

Oddly enough, around here, as long as I am only working on MY property, 
I seem to be able to do most anything.

Your original message was complaining about the removal of
compliance test mode.  The specific purpose of compliance test
mode is to permit a radio to operate outside of legal
limits.   For instance over the legal power limit or on DFS
bands without DFS enabled or outside legal channels for that
radio.

UBNT has stated over and over that their intent was not to
prevent any legal operation of their radio.  I haven't heard
of any instances where not having compliance mode has resulted
in a meaningful impact to a legal operator.   I hate to defend
them but in this case it seems like they may have gotten it
nearly correct.

Is there a specific frequency and power you're using you think
is legal but isn't permitted unless you turn on compliance

I'm going to agree with others...

Running outside legal limits doesn't look good to the
FCC, and it sounds like you are definitely running
outside the limits since you are whining about the
ability to run your radios in a mode which seems to
have no use than to exceed the limits.

I will also add that if you're running all your radios
hotter than they should be that your nose floor
problem is most likely self inflicted. My experience
over the years is that radios are designed to run at a
specific tx power and if you're exceeding it you get a
lot of out of channel bleed over. Even if the radios
don't do this you are introducing far more rf than is
likely needed causing an overall

Haven't we had this discussion before?  In reference to m-PCI radio cards?

Didn't it break down to a 'spirit of the law' group and a 'letter of the 
law' group last time?  Professional installer, anyone?

Won't it do that again?  Isn't insanity doing the same thing over and 
over and expecting a different result?

The fact is, if a DFS compliant AP changes channels and it's CPE follow 
it, the radar occupied channel is vacated.  Yes, it is not letter of the 
law compliant.  OTOH, it is unlikely to cause interference.  Isn't that 
the goal?

I don't have a dog in this fight.  The only thing I have in this band is 
a legacy 600 yard 5.3GHz PtP from before the new rules.  So it doesn't 
affect me either way.

 I often wonder how long WiFi has before it is totally unusable.  It is

 So I called the company (the Whittier CA branch, not the ones in Poland)
 and spoke with a gentleman named Pedro.

 Their current model holds only a single Rocket. However within the next
 couple of weeks (estimated availability) they will have a model that
 holds two Rockets. The downside of this is that there is space in the
 enclosure for two Rockets, however it's not molded or designed for them
 to snap into place - it's up to us to determine how to stabilize the
 Rockets inside the enclosure. I understood Pedro to say they are looking
 into rectifying that. (That was the only downside of this product that I
 saw. That's not to say I didn't ask the right questions, but of the ones
 I did ask, this was the only negative.)

 They are 90 degree -3dBi sectors.

 The gain on the antennas is 15 dBi (for the 2.4 GHz), and 18 dBi (for
 the 5 GHz).

 List price is currently $209 per unit. This may increase slightly (10 to
 20 percent) when the units are released that hold two Rockets. Pedro
 felt the cost would remain less than $250 though, after the increase.

 Hope this helps someone. I'm pretty psyched about it, and am very
 interested in testing them out.

   Good Morning,

   I believe I know the answer to this already, however my managers 
 wanted
   me to ask. Has anyone ever heard of an access point that has two
   different frequencies (ie. 2.4 and 5.8) and each of their antennas
   integrated all into a single unit? The thought process behind this 
 being
   to save on tower space and load.

   This isn't referring to a full duplex configuration used for ptp links
   where one frequency transmits while the other frequency listens. This
   would be for PTMP between the tower and CPE units.

   Thanks,
   Sam

A good explanation is at Wikipedia strange enough...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U-NII

People running equipment in frequencies at a power level higher than 
intended is the issue.  Also, the 5470-5725 band requires DFS.




Actually, so does 5.25-5.35, as of 2004 or so.  It didn't originally, 
but when they added the 5.47-5.725 band, which needs DFS, they added 
the requirement to the original U-NII-2A band.  So

15.407(h)(2) Radar Detection Function of Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS).
U-NII devices operating in the 5.25-5.35 GHz and5  
http://www.hallikainen.org/FCC/FccRules/2013/5/47-5/section.pdf.47-5  
http://sujan.hallikainen.org/FCC/FccRules/2013/5/47-5/index.php.725 GHz bands
shall employ a DFS radar detection mechanism to detect the presence of
radar systems and to avoid co-channel operation with radar systems.

The power level down there is adequate for some applications, like 
half-mile links.  Lots of old Motorola PTP-400s are legally pumping +5 
to +9 dBm into panels... one urban path is working over 2 miles, 
though we're replacing it.

I'm going to agree with others...

Running outside legal limits doesn't look good to the FCC,
and it sounds like you are definitely running outside the
limits since you are whining about the ability to run your
radios in a mode which seems to have no use than to exceed
the limits.

I will also add that if you're running all your radios hotter
than they should be that your nose floor problem is most
likely self inflicted.   My experience over the years is that
radios are designed to run at a specific tx power and if
you're exceeding it you get a lot of out of channel bleed
over.  Even if the radios don't do this you are introducing
far more rf than is likely needed causing an overall rising
of the noise floor.

Please don't interpret everyone's ire incorrectly.   We've
just all either dealt with an operator like you are now or
have been an operator like you are now.  And right now we're
trying to gain credibility with the FCC which is hard to do
when some operators are flagrantly breaking the rules.  Which
makes us a bit grumpy.

I'm sure some of your neighbors out there would love to help
you better understand what you are doing to yourself and help
you improve your operations which will in turn improve your
quality of service.   Heck, I'd drive over there for a
weekend if my schedule wasn't so packed.

In any case please ask for help in appropriate spots and let
us help you reap the rewards of a correctly and legally
operating network.

I'm with Forrest here.
Back in the back ol' days of everyone running amps (we had to back

power means faster service at longer ranges right?
WRONG.  Carrier to interference level is where your speed and 
distance comes from.
The high power systems, as Forrest says, cause the radios to produce 
much more *detectable* power outside their main band.  That power 
outside the main band causes the interference.
It was always a struggle, but when I used to do interference I 
convinced many WISPs that LOWER powers would actually improve the 
performance of their networks. It was nearly 100% true.  In the rare 
cases when lower power levels didn't work it was because people were 
trying to use higher powers to over-ride physics and go through 
trees, buildings etc.
One very important note here.  If you do try lower power levels 
you'll have to lower ALL of the devices back down to reasonable 
levels (RSSI should be between --65 and --75 for most modern radios 
to perform their best, --55 will work but see the above notes about 
self inflicted interference).
A quick check is to shut down all of your AP's in an area and see 
what the noise goes to.
Oh yeah, very few radios really report accurate interference 
information.  If you are checking those levels via anything other 
than a real spectrum analyzer you'll likely find out that there are 
also other things happening in your area.

Call if you'd like and we can talk this out a bit more.

Still interesting, but a few defects from my POV...

1) AP price is too high for me
2) No connectorized AP
3) CPE price is kinda high... Could deal with this if the AP
pricing was substantially better.
4) No connectorized CPE

I don't have the density in many locations to need sectors. 

But still interesting. As it evolves and pricing improves, I can

Charging $30 a month.  Of course we only have one paid employee.  The

dial-up or satellite.  When CenturyLink finally moves into a

still have tons of folks with no options other then us.


It cost us about $30K every time we have to upgrade the backbone and 
back haul and APs, but luckily we have enough time between upgrades 
to bank the funds.


I don't know how you guys can make a profit.

If you can't get at least the package you want we don't install
you.

We are getting to the point in a lot of our markets that we
need to offer different speed packages. Issue being some
markets, being 900 or slightly sub-par infrastructure, we
wouldn't be able to promote these packages across the board.
Was curious if others are offering packages to different areas
that would not be possible in some? And if so, do you get any
backlash from those who cannot get those packages? Is it
appropriate to offer extended packages to users on one tower
when another tower down the road wouldn't be capable of these
packages? Its bad but we just offer a residential rate, no
matter if that customer can get 1 meg down via Canopy 900 or
close to 10 meg on a UBNT SM. I have caught a little heat in an
area where we fired up 900 about 4 years ago to a market that
had only satellite. Then we hooked up a tower in a small town 4
miles away with UBNT M2 and news spread like wild fire. We went
from 40 900 subs to about a dozen, and a pile of radios I don't
want to deploy again.  Shame on me for not offering the
extended packages at that time for those wanting more bandwidth.
I also have the area outside my home town that Century Link
offers what they claim is 12 meg service, but it never gets
close. I am constantly adding more sectors in these areas, Im
getting to the point where I am adding UBNT to offload Canopy,
then adding more UBNT to offload the UBNT that was offloading
the Canopy, it gets to be a vicious circle. I am already $20
per month more than CL, not sure if a lot of customers would
stay if I were to charge them more for what they are getting
now. Once again shame on me. The bosses think the prices should
be the same across the board, but technically performances
cannot be matched across the board, plus Im running ragged
satisfying existing customers when I should be looking at new
areas, and start the vicious circle all over again LOL.

nods to Zach-

I've been building outdoor wireless (mostly mesh) networks since about 
2002.  When I worked for Earthlink in 2006 and 2007 and deployed about 
7 large Muni systems (12,000 APs in Philly for example), it was an 
open system. Anyone (including a WISP) who had the up-front $$ could 
get an SSID and be handed off their traffic. We had SSIDs for Vonage 
and DirectV as others.


Several local towns here also installed various (mostly Cisco) Cisco 
mesh systems. Then they chose an ISP to power them. The later company 
I was with (a small WISP, not Earthlink) was chosen in two of the 
towns. We were handed an Ethernet cable. On the other end of that 
cable were all the residences and businesses in town that the Muni 
system passed. Pretty sweet.


Back years ago when the WISPS on the lists were worrying about the 
Muni systems, you may remember that I promoted a don't fight 'em, 
join 'em strategy. Very few did.  Now of course it is different 
because the Cablecos realized they could do it too. They have the 
(almost) unlimited wired backhaul, the access rights, the strand 
provided 60-90v power, and the DEEP pockets.  This is why Cisco even 
stayed in the outdoor AP business at all. Their mesh did not perform 
well. But who needs mesh if you can make every AP a root (wired) 
access point.

 If it's that they also deliver Internet over another medium,

also deliver Internet over cable and fiber?

 If it's that they also provide TV service, then what about those
of us that also run transport, hosting, development, and

 Not that I wouldn't love some protected spectrum, I'm just

For those who do computer repair, there is a good opportunity there.

But we closed our repair shop when my business partner retired.

I don't have time to do it.  And, IMO, it is not a job for someone at

hackers and spammers are gearing up for the end of XP patches),
we will suffer too... in our networks.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti radios failing?

I've seen this issue with xr-2 mPCI cards,  f.20 mPCI cards and others.  
Don't really think it is a UBNT only issue.

I think it is just one of the failure modes of the Atheros chipset.

 As far as I know there is no mailing list to read something like yes we
 have a problem on these units do not install them but if you are aware
 please send me the right pointer. It would save us a lot of money just
 checking the serial numbers instaed of doing the installation twice (or
 3-4-5-6 times).

 Now we have to monitor which unit is failing which is not, then
 reorganize the logistics with the customer, stay at the phone with the
 customer to explain that have to fix a failing unit (the custoer will
 think we are taking excuse for some reason) and then finally go there
 and HOPE that the new unit is not broken

 Now, I hope mikrotik will release new products and we will see if it's
 time to switch to mikrotik.

 Do a little searching on the UBNT forums. There were a few batches of

We moved to this model years ago.

50G per month, up to 10Mb/s burst,1am to 7am doesn't count against cap, 
drop to 256K/128K when you reach the cap, no contract


Very few complaints.

If they want streaming, we sell them a CIR at whatever speed they want.  
$200 for 2M, $350 for 4M and so on.  Contract required.

I got that off my chest.
So our situation has been for years residential customers pay a flat

calls about netflix I make throttle adjustments in the SM to make 
them happy. Well eventually I have an overloaded AP, then I have to 
either sectorize or add a different frequency, add higher capacity 
BHs out of my pocket, just to keep my customers happy at the same 
price we have been charging for 10 years. (We recently, since going 
to new billing service, added a $2 paper fee for non emailed invoices 
and I get crucified by the same customers every month). Ideally I 
want to get away from mechanical throttles.
We are in the middle running our authentication thru our new billing

we should have been doing from day one. Anyways, once we get things 
squared away, what's a common practice on doing packages? If you have 
basic customers out there that do not stream or use tons of bandwidth 
would you keep them at the current rate, or drop the rate and 
throttle them tight? I would assume that we would want to offer an 
increased package to known streamers, maybe throttle them down to a 
basic level and wait to hear from them when they are willing to 
upgrade their package? I would then anticipate that making the 
expenditures to provide them with the service would be worth the venture.

http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless


This is a really big problem for WISPs.  Streaming high-quality video 
has been the potential elephant in the room of the ISP business for a 
long time.  It is finally starting to show up in the room, thanks to 
Netflix, Hulu, and others like them.


Poisoning the well is the public's paranoia about cable companies, who 
usually have ample Internet capacity (fiber to a major peering point; 
high capacity HFC networks).  So if they do anything to limit 
streaming, it's seen as an anti-competitive trick, to get people to 
buy more channels.  This may or may not be true, but that's the public 
perception, which was a major driver of the network neutrality 
kerfuffle now in court.


Of course most WISPs are nothing like cable!  But the public doesn't 
see the difference, and if the FCC gains authority over WISPs (which 
they shouldn't have, by law, but what's the law when the public wants 
their circuses, I mean teevee?), then if WISPs do anything that 
selectively blocks video, or even UDP, it might be seen as a 
violation.  So your legal authority to act is in question.  And who is 
leading the appeal against the law? Verizon, who is actually behind it 
(since it hurts Comcast more than them).  Hence their arguments are on 
the lame side.  The only things going for us in the DC Circuit are 
that the DC Circuit dislikes the FCC in general, and the FCC did a 
really bad job in claiming the authority.


Thus the neutral answer is to move towards bandwidth caps.  This to 
me makes more sense, to a WISP, than a rate-based price tier. Somebody 
can burst at 10 Mbps once in a while and put little load on the 
network, but somebody watching TV at 3 Mbps all day will clobber you.  
Gigabytes/month represents a monthly average load. If you do this, you 
can raise everyone's base rate to the max. Cellular does this.


But there are two very different approaches taken even by cellcos when 
the cap is reached.  If you are on VZ, ATT or Sprint, you are charged 
extra when you exceed the cap.  A lot extra.  This leads people to buy 
bigger plans than they need, just to be sure they don't hit the cap.  
If on the other hand you're on T-Mobile, once you hit the cap your 
data is throttled WAY down to EDGE speeds (around 80 kbps if the wind 
is from the west), but they don't charge more.


So my gut feeling is that the best strategy for dealing with pink-eyed 
elephants is to move to usage-based plans.  Look at the actual monthly 
usage for each customer and see how many would fall into any given 
tier, if you draw tiers.  Set it 

Re: [WISPA] question for the group

2013-09-19 Thread Blair Davis

  
  
Oh boy!

IANAL... That phrase 'Professional Installer' is likely the single
most contentious thing the FCC has done in the last 20 years...

In general, it seems that as long as you follow the EIRP and
frequency rules and don't cause interference to a licensed user, all
is good.

OTOH, if you run way over the power limits, operate out of
band or interfere with licensed users,
they will, sooner or later, come find you.

Others have other opinions.

My opinion is that the terms 'Professional Installer' and '
Professionally Installed', have no real meaning as the FCC has, to
the best of my knowledge, failed to define either term.

YMMV

[WISPA] 802.11 and roaming

2013-09-07 Thread Blair Davis

  
  
I've tried MikroTik.

I've tried Cisco.

I've tried UniFi.

I pretty much don't think there is a working way to roam from AP to
AP with 802.11 in an open system.

The client holds on to the weak AP long after there are stronger
AP's to talk to.

I think this is just the way it works.

Now, we are giving each AP a unique ESSID but keeping them bridged
on the wired side and requiring the user to change the connection
when out of range...

Not the best answer, but it works much better for the clients who
don't move much... I'd love a better answer...

Re: [WISPA] 802.11 and roaming

2013-09-07 Thread Blair Davis

  
  
They may claim it,(UBNT) but, as far as I can tell it doesn't work
on an open network. Haven't tried on an encrypted network.

3.1.3 software. All were on same ESSID, but different channels.
Chose channels to minimize interference. Users work just fine as
long as they can only see one AP. When they can see more than one
some users seem to jump back and forth. Some will grab one AP in a
death grip and keep it to -88. Some just freeze for a min or two.

This is a public area, fairground, and as best I can tell, users
just can't roam reliably.

Of course, LOTS of noise! I remember reading something once about
being able to shut down 'rogue AP's', i.e. AP's that don't belong to
the fairground, but I can't remember who that was. Maybe that would
cut the noise.

These calcs aren't going to be able to factor in the foliage

free space as the loss.

Rocket + UBNT sector as the AP and a NanoBridge as the CPE.

AP - CPE = -63
CPE - AP = -61

Now if we had antenna of the same gain in 900 as I'm using in 5
GHz (18 AP, 25 CPE)

AP - CPE = -49
CPE - AP = -56

So I guess its not as optimistic as I thought because of the PtP
rule in 5 GHz, but in the downstream direction (AP - CPE), we're
14 is dB better and CPE to AP we're 5 dB.

Manufacturers, give us bigger antenna!

  With Cambium, we have connections
that are stable at -82 dB.

We have a backup backhaul for a tower that is about 5 miles.
One ridge in between towers must have trees that interfere
with freznel zone. Towers are 200'. Originally had a Cambium
900 with 6 foot single polarity yagis. It worked for
emergencies in most situations (sometimes rain or snow would
interfere). Put in UBNT with UBNT dual polarity yagis.
Bandwidth available is slightly lower than the Cambium.

From what I have experienced with UBNT 900, it works
marginally better than 2.4 with tree penetration. Cambium
900 actually does work, even without freznel zone clearance
at times. There are many situations it will not work, but it
will reach 50% more of the households than UBNT.

As for interference, I have mounted a Cambium 900 SM with
the UBNT dual polarity with 40 foot horizontal separation
without interference (for testing purposes, not real world
implementation). It did work.

GPS sync is better. I have two horizontal 900 omnis and 1
vertical omni mounted with less than 12" of horizontal
separation on a tower using Cambium (no sectors will not
work in this situation, and additional tower space is not
available). It works. 

We have a tower currently with a 900 backhaul and 900 ap for
distribution. Sync makes this possible. When we raise the
tower another 100 feet this 900 backhaul will go away.
2.4/5.x do not work on this. A few 80+ foot trees
(somewhere) are the problem

Yes, the smartmeter usage of 900 spectrum is problematic
around here and they seem to be a 919 mhz center channel.
Using channels higher than 915 becomes more difficult.

This is why I state that UBNT 900 is not good. Increasing
signal by 15 dB is IMPOSSIBLE for our situations... well,
legally that is.

The key is getting your own IP space.

Then the upstream will leave you alone.

Do
you get notices from your upstream for addresses that arent

ATT before we got our own IP block but only get them
from HBO, Starz, Warner Bros etc now. Havent ever gotten
one from Cogent but havent had that circuit for even a year
yet either.

I
understand the logic behind telling them that youll
research it for a fee but typically the ones that we get
never ask for any response. They just ask that you notify
the offending party and make it stop. We never reply to
them but do check the IP address. If its a NATed address
we note it on the ticket and close it. If its a public IP
we send the customer a notice that there was illegal
activity detected on their connection. That usually stops
the activity right away. The last one that I sent out, the
customer replied thanking us for letting her know. Said she
told her neighbors that they couldnt do that anymore
because she didnt want to lose her Netflix over somebody
doing something illegal. I think we were about halfway
through the month and they had transferred about 250Gb at
that point. Usage dropped to normal Netflix user amounts
after that.

Plug the light in and the voltage stabilizes, which allows the UPS to kick back on to the line power. It also provides some nice lighting if it's at night.

I've seen the generators go everywhere from 40Hz to 90Hz.

Has anyone come across a nice portable alternator (as opposed to a

Do you rent it or own it? (personally, I hate the idea of 'software

Is it local or in the cloud? (I trust the cloud as far as I can
throw it.)
Support type? 
Support cost? Ongoing or incident?
Integrate with MT?
Integrate with UBNT?
Payment systems? IPPay, Authorize.net, other
Support for a Hotspot system? MT or UBNT?

We currently use QB. and renewal is coming up in 2-3 months...
We are open to different answers, but those questions come to mind
right away. 

Vendors, if you will be at KY, consider it a chance to persuade me.

Is anyone else looking to save some cash by staying a mile or two
away instead of right downtown?

To me, $126 a nite +tax is a LOT for a motel room.

Especially when I can find places within 4 miles for less than $50 a
nite + tax.

I can't believe that parking or a taxi will cost more than $75 a
day...

Maybe I'm just cheap, but the only time I've ever paid more than $69
a night was for a special weekend away.

I have no problem with the $498 I paid to WISPA for the conference.

I have no problem with my yearly membership to WISPA. I think it is
worth every penny.

I am also one of those who has no interest in Vegas and who pestered
Rick for another Mid-West show like St. Louis. (Thanks, Rick!! And
for the next non-Vegas conference, let's be thinking
AL,AR,MS,OK,TN,TX. After all, Vegas as anchor pretty much covers
the west.) 

But, I can't justify $126+tax for a room I'll be in 9-10 hours a
day, and asleep most of that! And that extra $250 is, well, $250.
I can think of a lot of things I'd rather spend $250 on than a room
to sleep in.

Maybe it is just a different way of looking at things. When we go
out on vacation, most of the time we are in Motel 6 or Super 8. We
drive and look at things and stop where ever things look
interesting.

Technically, this is work. I'm less likely to spend more on a motel
for work than for play! 

And I am not complaining... I was just looking to see if I was
alone... Seems not.

I
actually do not know yet. The 2450 are new and
different from
the previous ones in terms of some of the hardware
(filters and such), so I
don't yet have North American anecdotal examples.
Most international examples
are not WISP-based I understand, using omni versions
for apps like smart
cities, indoor coverage from outside, stadiums, etc.
The WISP market is a big
reason why we are doing the sector versions.

The
specs on the dual band sector are:
2.4
GHz: HGDP, 12dBi, 120H x 16V
5
GHz: HGDP, 14dBi, 120H x 8V

Effective
directed EIRP totals are high because they meet the
PTP FCC requirements because of the adaptive
beamforming:
2.4
GHz: 48 dBm
5 GHz: 49 dBm

Those
of you smarter than I can probably do the math then
to get
an idea of range at various heights. The one example
I know from a trusted
source (my engineer) is his getting stable 20mbps
with the USB device one mile
away from his house with the BTS mounted on the
railing of his 2nd story porch.
I am not sure of his LOS or NLOS condition, but I
should assume mostly LOS to
be safe. The beamforming is bi-directional from the
CPE up as well, so that
should help the range too.

Thanks.

Along with the pricing, please send or link to some
documentation... 

I like the idea of beam-forming for both Tx and Rx. Under the PtP
power/gain rules, I suspect that there may be some usability in
NLoS.

I also suspect that beam-forming may help solve the 'hidden node'
problem.

Now, I'm thinking of how cool it would be to combine this with
AirMax. (not gonna happen, I know. Still cool)

  Yes. Beta units are the same as what are shipping to

make any sense and would go against every previous beta Ubiquiti
has ever done.
  
  
  Being in Latvia RMAs with MT are a pain in the rear and take
months to get completed - usually involving sending it direct
yourself or back to your distributor who batches them back to
Latvia. With Ubiquiti, being US based, you just send the device
back to SJ and you get a new one.
  
  
  Support? You must have a secret number for MT support. The
only way I know to get support on MT is to go to the MT forums
where you'll get beat up... And heaven forbid you find a
bug.you'll get tarred and feathered. And certainly no
discussion of competitors products on their forums because that
would be a bad thing.  I think it speaks worlds that MT uses

people help them!
  
  
  Ubiquiti has phone support, a very active FRIENDLY forum.
When was the last time you saw a MT firmware developer on the
forum answering questions?

  Hi Folks,

Hopefully this isn't too far off subject for this list.

I want to start learning a little more about mikrotik, but I'm having 
trouble finding good study resources.  I've looked at the wiki, and 
while good, it's more of a cookbook than a tech-pub, at least IMO.  I 
don't want "How to replace your linksys with an MT" and don't need a lot 
of extra text to slog through that's mostly present to keep me 
engaged/motivated.  I'm very used to reading Cisco's doc-cd (or whatever 
they're calling it these days) and honestly prefer technically rich but 
direct and to the point.  I'd also prefer CLI examples rather than 
looking at rescaled screenies from winbox.  Does such a beast exist?  If 
not, what's the standard way to delve in to ROS?

As an example of what I'm running up against, I'll use queuing.  I use 
DSCP markings on the network I manage to differentiate traffic. I was 
stunned to discover that MT (apparently) can't simply match existing 
DSCP markings and act on them, but instead requires me to match them, 
give them some internal packet mark, and then act on those non-DSCP 
markings.  I wanted to better understand what was really going on inside 
the router, and wanted to verify that what I thought I understood was 
really the case.  I read the wiki pages on HTB and Queues, but I still 
don't truly understand how to guarantee, say EF tagged traffic, a 
certain amount of bandwidth other than limit-at= and a higher relative 
priority setting (priority=1?).  But is that single queue enough, or do 
I also need to create what in cisco-land would be "class-default?"  TBH, 
I still don't even understand how and what MT uses internally to "mark" 
packets with tags like "VoipTraffic" or whatever.  Obviously the packet 
isn't being marked with an ascii string...

Ideas?  Better place to ask this?

Thanks!
