Re: [WISPA] Static IP Pricing

If they are able to legitimately justify a /26 in IP space then it’s possible 
you aren’t charging enough for your service.

Typical cost is around $1-2/IP/Month with various fiber providers.

I've been planning to charge something like $10-20/IP/Mo for commercial in 
order to only sell to people who really need it.

How much do you charge business customers for static IPs?

 

Comcast Business class cable internet charges

 1 - $14.95/mo.

 5 - $19.95/mo

 13 - $34.95/mo.

 

What do fiber providers charge?

 

I have a potential client that currently has a /27 with his current provider, 
and would like at least a /27 or preferably a /26 from us.

 

We only have a /21 worth of space from ARIN.

Since we have more than one mounting option now and different folks want 
different ones, we are pulling the mounts out of the radio box and letting it 
be your choice which one.

 

The transition has been less than smooth. We are reminding all our partners 
about this.

 

The sector is the first to change. The rest of the MetroLinqs will follow 
eventually and will get a corresponding cost reduction.

 

Please bear with us and let us know if you have difficulty getting mounts!

Re: [WISPA] WAN Optimization products for Medical Imaging / Radiology ?

2014-01-24 Thread Brad Belton
We're very familiar with PACS.  Not sure what if anything you need to do
unless the network is congested.  Typically the remote user will either have
a pptp or ipsec tunnel back to the server/network.  The bandwidth the remote
user has available to them (at home, hotel etc.) will obviously vary
depending on what they are using.  The images will simply move faster with
higher bandwidth connections and slower with lower bandwidth connections.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti ERLite-3 3-port Router

2013-01-09 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed.  A carpenter once told me that some tools require more skill than other 
tools to use properly and get the desired results.  This isn’t meant as a jab 
towards anyone, but I feel is an honest truth.  I know there are several tools 
in my bag that I wish I was more skilled with…MikroTik included.  

 

The RouterBoard capacitor issue was a pain, but I believe they determined it 
was a counterfeiting issue and not a design problem.  They received a large 
batch of capacitors that were not up to the specifications they should have 
been.  As compared to many wireless operators here we don’t deploy a bunch of 
these boards, so I can appreciate the heartache some must be going through as 
these boards with bad capacitors fail slowly over time.

 

BTW, I think if you look at the board you can visually tell if it has 
counterfeit capacitors or not.  Pretty sure the green colored caps are the bad 
ones and the brown ones are good.

 

Best,

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti next product.... another router?

2012-09-14 Thread Brad Belton
Relatively speaking we deploy few UBNT radios as compared to many operators
here, but ever since v5.3.2 we haven't had any issues with UBNT lockups or
UBNT radios requiring a power cycle.  Install and forget.  Very pleased with
their radios.

Matt,  Have to disagree with you here.  UBNT equipment does not just
run..

It locks up for no reason and requires a power cycle in order to come back.

 

If you want equipment that  JUST RUNS   and requires no baby sitting that
equipment has a Cambium logo on it.

You pay dearly for it and I have a significant amount in my network but I am
not deploying it because the cost is too high and 

the bandwidth is too low.  UBNT equipment is very high maintainance and
super hard to diagnosis what the problem is when you have one.

 

With all that being said I am still currently only deploying UBNT and
actually taking down Canopy FSK to replace it with UBNT 2X2

Greg,

I don't ever recall seeing bleeding-edge firmware with bugs released

from Ubiquiti unless you mean the betas?  But that's what they

are... betas.   Since 5.3.3 up to the current 5.5.2 release I haven't

had any problems with the final releases of software.

 

I can't count the number of Linksys, DLink, Hawking, whatever wireless

routers we've replaced for customers because they had problems with

their Internet.  We put in a Power AP-N, or an AirRouter and we never

hear from them again.

 

Truth be told... Ubiquiti equipment just runs... it doesn't need

rebooted.  It doesn't need babysat.  It just runs.

 

No I am not being paid to make these statements.  I just have many years

working in IT.  I've used Cisco, MikroTik, Alvarion, Motorola and now

Ubiquiti.  The Ubiquiti equipment just works.  I have a backhaul that's

been up for over a year with no reboots and no problems.

Good point.  All our sites (clients, towers, etc) have a APC UPS being
monitored every 10 seconds by a MikroTik router.  Nothing is on our network
without our managed router plugged into a UPS..radios included!

Relatively speaking we deploy few UBNT radios as compared to many operators

UBNT radios requiring a power cycle.  Install and forget.  Very pleased with
their radios.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti next product.... airCAM Pro...

2012-09-14 Thread Brad Belton
Hello Ben,

 

We are very interested in UBNT multi-megapixel cameras.  Love to see some
5MP or 10MP cameras!  We have one airCAM that we've been playing with, but
as expected it pales in comparison to the Arecont 5105's we currently use.

 

If UBNT wants to truly be market disruptive than they need to introduce a
$200 5MP+ security camera!  Axis and the like have had a stranglehold on the
IP camera market for far too long!

 

Also, the airVision software is exciting, but needs lots of improvement.

 

Best,

 

Brad

Hi All,

This week my career with ImageStream/Blue Technology will come to an end.
It's been a 12 year run (to the day!) filled with highs and lows...but far
more highs. I've made lifelong friends, both co-workers and customers. I was
able to travel the world. We sold great products to great people. I want to
thank J.C. Utter, Scott Yoder, Doug Hass, and Laraine Mastrianna for the
trust and encouragement that they provided me at various points in those 12
years.

Working with WISPs and with WISPA has been, and will continue to be a
highlight of my career!  

I'm looking forward to where God will direct me for the next phase of my
career.  If you have any thoughts or potential opportunities, I'd LOVE to
hear from you!  My contact information is below.

Thank you all for your friendship and support!

2012-08-03 Thread Brad Belton
Rick,

Exactly the point I'm trying to make.listing every ZIP Code in the country
wouldn't do the potential client or potential provider any good.  That is
why I suggest listing the ZIP Codes the potential client is interested in
and the providers that feel they can serve the area immediately (or expand
their coverage to earn the business) can respond.

I would be very surprised to learn that we are the only provider that will
build out or expand network coverage in order to acquire a new account!  So,
the idea of a provider listing only ZIP Codes that they currently cover
would be considered short sighted.IMO.

I'll add that the street runs both ways as well.  We have facilitated many
circuits within our network for third parties.

Best,

Brad

I don't think our database could accept that many and it would not give us

Yes, Crovitz' article got some serious reactions from the people who were

with Internet, perhaps because they rhyme and are both high-techy things,
which to a finance guy like him make them equivalent.  Then he completely
distorts the history of the ARPANET and how the Internet evolved from it.
He wasn't there.  I was, and I was at BBN in the 1970s when we were building
the ARPANET for the government.  And I was at BBN in 1994 when they bought
three of the previously government-sponsored NSFnet regional nets from their
university owners and created a commercial ISP business.

Just goes to show you that when Rupert Murdoch wants to spread a lie, he'll

Re: [WISPA] Dragonwave Horizon Compact - one way traffic only?

2012-07-31 Thread Brad Belton
I've only seen this behavior twice from a Trango radio...it pains me to
admit the first time was user error.  This happened during a new
installation.  I was in a hurry.it turned out that one side had opmode
enabled and the other was not yet turned on!  That'll pretty much guarantee
one way traffic.

The second time was a faulty GigaLINK 11GHz ODU (Serial # 0007).   After
years of reliable service, this path would at random times begin to lose
link lock status on one side.  Trango Support was extremely responsive (as
always) and ultimately identified which of the four components (IDU or ODU)
needed to be replaced.  This was not an easy task given the random nature of
the problem, but extremely helpful given the location of this link.  Trango
saved us countless man hours by positively identifying which IDU or ODU was
faulty prior to us making the trip out to the site.

If you are experiencing traffic lockups  Ethernet instability on several of
Trango's models I would suggest looking into what common denominators are in
play on these links.  We have not had the trouble you are seeing with Trango
radios.

Re: [WISPA] Dragonwave Horizon Compact - one way traffic only?

2012-07-31 Thread Brad Belton
Interesting.  We have a few Apex  ApexPlus radios deployed and haven't seen
this.  We have preferred to use the GigaPlus in most cases.  What are the
Apex radios plugged into?  (e.g. Cisco, MikroTik Routerboards, switches etc,
etc.)  Does the cable distance make a difference?  

Are you seeing this with the SFP port too?

Thanks,

Brad

We've been working with Trango from day one on this issue which is now going
on its 10th month with no resolution. Trango seems to believe this a problem
with the Broadcom ethernet chipset in the Apex and ApexPlus radios. The
problem doesn't seem to be related to our network as we can replace a
problematic link with a Trango GigaPlus or DragonWave Horizon Compact and
the problem goes away.

The only common denominator is those particular Trango models.

Re: [WISPA] DFS2 gear

2012-02-28 Thread Brad Belton
 The every day, CAnopy versus Trango thread :-) 

First it was the Proxim vs. Sunstream (aka Trango)  threads with Allen M.

Winner = Sunstream (aka Trango)


Second it was Alvarion vs. Trango threads with Patrick L.

Winner = Trango


Third it was Canopy vs. Trango threads.I forget the huge Canopy
proponent.

Winner = draw  Trango was a better product, but Canopy PtMP is
still here!


I'm just glad Trango finally listened to some of their clients and moved
away from the cheaper is better/race to the bottom product and moved into
the licensed arena!  Now Trango needs to stop trying to compete with
RadioWaves and focus on continuing to build better/faster licensed radios.


We too still have many Trango radios in the air plugging along very nicely.
We only recently pulled the last of the Sunstream radios offline.  I think a
couple of those have earned a home in our little hardware archive collection
and be spared from the landfill.   Lol

No question that Canopy stayed in the PtMP game longer, to go beyond the
10mb barrier, with advantage line and OFDM..

But to keep it real  At a typical Trango Link Budget / Max distance,
inserting a legacy Canopy w/ its inferior small antenna size and weaker link
budget, Canopy would be lucky to get 5mbps, if it could even associate in
our noise floor.  How quickly its forgotten, the Canopy 8db AP integ
antenna, and Trango's 14db-18db AP integ antenna, gaining Trango the winning
link budget, even after considering the C/I.  It brings back memories of the
past.. The every day, CAnopy versus Trango thread :-)

are smarter minds than mine that have been trying to figure that one out
since this industry started.

As Jay mentioned, Clearwire is probably the closest business model to
what you are looking for, and even with their deep pockets and licensed
spectrum they are having a tough time making it work.  And I think it is
precisely because they are choosing to go the route that you are looking
for.

If they took their spectrum and equipment and used it as traditional,
professionally installed fixed wireless setup they would probably have a
working business model.  Sure their return on investment would be higher
due to the installer cost, but if they took a dish-network model to
getting installs done they would only be looking at 3-6 months break
even on the install cost and considering the amount of money that has
already been poured into the business I would think that would be a drop
in the bucket.

Re: [WISPA] 24port POE switch recommendation

2011-04-25 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed, we keep the phones separate from the PCs on LANs with more than a
few users.  Makes troubleshooting much easier in the event something goes
awry down the road.

That is a decent price for a 24port PoE switch.  We've standardized on the
Dell switches and have been very happy.  We really appreciate Dell's use of
a common, intuitive user interface throughout their switch line.

Dell prices are better than what is published on their site once you have
established an account and start doing a little business.  For example on
the discount, the PowerConnect 2824 costs us 179.00 rather than the 269.00
they list on their site.  I haven't priced it yet, but my guess is the
equivalent Dell PoE switch will be more expensive than the NewEgg Netgear
deal Travis posted.

Brad

Re: [WISPA] Mikrotik or ubiquiti with fiber interface?

2011-03-29 Thread Brad Belton
Hmmmmust have overlooked the email from MikroTIk.  However,
http://www.titanwirelessonline.com just emailed me the information on the
RB2100.

Looks interesting...wish it was all GigE ports and had more of them.  Glad
to see it has a USB port and is rack mountable!  However, I'm concerned the
are marketing this as a low cost router...makes me fear it will have a poor
CPU.

Thanks!

Brad

I don't have any readily available, but what is publicly available was
emailed, on their forum, on several blogs, etc.

It only has 1 SFP port.

Re: [WISPA] non-802.3 rackmount poe switch

2011-03-04 Thread Brad Belton
Hello Kevin,

 

Starting to sound like this project is taking shape!  Keep me posted and can
we get an updated bullet point list of the feature set you are thinking?

 

Maybe the output voltage should be just a simple pass-through from whatever
redundant power supplies the end user selects for their PoE equipment?  This
may help future proof the PoE Controller from possible vendor changes like
UBNT is considering. (e.g. 24VDC to 48VDC) 

 

Best,

 

Brad

Yes, better.  At this time, we only use AC to power devices.

Also I didn't see a web interface or cli on your list of features...

Also also, number of ports should = 12

At $250, depending on features when it actually hit the street, we would
take about 20.

On 3/4/2011 10:56 AM, Kevin Sullivan wrote: 

I guess the biggest question in my mind is whether most WISPs would need a
non-standard 24v or 48v out. At the last Ubiquiti conference they mentioned
that their newest line of AirBeam APs will be running 48v. Obviously their
current line is 24v, as is Trango and Tranzeo. Moto needs the GPS sync
signal, so this wouldn't work for that.

 Also, would most people use DC or A/C to power the device? If DC, 24 or
48v?

I talked it over with our electrical engineer, and he says the $450
number is what it would cost in the three-four quantity we had been
discussing. In a batch of 100, the price would be closer to $250. Is that
more appealing?

Hello Kevin,

I'd be interested depending on how many ports you think this device would
have.  It seems 12 ports would be a good compromise.  If a HUB site requires
more than 12 ports then that site should easily justify another $450 in
equipment, IMO.

Would surge suppression be included similar to whatever basic surge
suppression is found in today's PoE's?  

24VDC output would probably be our preference too.  Are you saying the DC
input would be adjustable or are you looking for a consensus?

1U shallow depth rack mount is pretty much a requirement for us.

Keep us posted.

Best,

Brad

So... we're most of the way through a mid-span design similar to what people
are outlining here. Right now it's only non-standard POE, though. No 802.3.
Again, we were only going to build three, for our own use. If we sold
something that was:

Remote on/off per port

Auto-ping reboot per port

Dual-power supply, with notification on fail

DC powered, either 12, 24, or 48v

The one we are working on is 24v output only

1u rackmount or small form factor wall mountable

SNMP for reboot, voltage monitoring, input monitoring

We figured if it's a DC device, we can plug it into 110v easily with a
transformer.

If it was $450, would anyone buy them? Actually, what I really need to know
is, would we be able to get rid of 90 of them? We'd have to make a batch of
100, and we could use 10.  We'd get them back from the PCB manufacturer
mid-May.

We've had more failures than successes with the Digital Loggers eight port

Maybe this version is more reliable?  I've also read that the DIN mount

Seems like a natural fit product that they could also manage via their

Kevin, 

On cost:  With your model, we're still going to need to buy a device like a
Digital Loggers remote AC reboot device because we will need to reboot a
router or switch.

If it can have a couple of AC ports to power a Mikrotik router (x86-based)
and a switch, we don't have to ALSO buy another remote boot device ($350
value).

Since we can get the remote booting with the digital logger box, then all
your box has done is clean up our PoE's, and I wouldn't pay nearly that
much.

Brad,

A tip on the Loggers 8 port...there is a rechargeable battery inside that
doesn't seem to last more than a year. Once it dies, you lose your config
and if the device ever looses power, everything comes back in either all off
state or all on state. I tossed one logger and then when it happened to a
second, I decided to tinker. I got a replacement battery at batteries plus
and it started working correctly again, saving my config after a power
outage. I'm not sure what can be done about it except to put them on a
maintenance schedule. Of course this was on the older devicesmaybe
they've gone to flash memory now?

Maybe this version is more reliable?  I've also read that the DIN mount
style rebooter is more reliable than the 2U rack mount style.  Maybe Kevin
could somehow integrate the DIN unit into his PoE controller to save costs
and development.

 

While I think adding a couple AC ports to this device would be neat..let's
not divert from the intent of this product from being a PoE controller.

 

I wonder why UBNT doesn't design a PoE controller that would fit the need?
Seems like a natural fit product that they could also manage via their
AirControl System management software.

Kevin, 

On cost:  With your model, we're still going to need to buy a device like a
Digital Loggers remote AC reboot device because we will need to reboot a
router or switch.

If it can have a couple of AC ports to power a Mikrotik router (x86-based)
and a switch, we don't have to ALSO buy another remote boot device ($350
value).

Since we can get the remote booting with the digital logger box, then all
your box has done is clean up our PoE's, and I wouldn't pay nearly that
much.

1u rackmount or small form factor wall mountable

SNMP for reboot, voltage monitoring, input monitoring

 

We figured if it's a DC device, we can plug it into 110v easily with a
transformer.

 

If it was $450, would anyone buy them? Actually, what I really need to know
is, would we be able to get rid of 90 of them? We'd have to make a batch of

mid-May.

Brad,

A tip on the Loggers 8 port...there is a rechargeable battery inside that
doesn't seem to last more than a year. Once it dies, you lose your config
and if the device ever looses power, everything comes back in either all off
state or all on state. I tossed one logger and then when it happened to a
second, I decided to tinker. I got a replacement battery at batteries plus
and it started working correctly again, saving my config after a power
outage. I'm not sure what can be done about it except to put them on a
maintenance schedule. Of course this was on the older devicesmaybe
they've gone to flash memory now?

Re: [WISPA] non-802.3 rackmount poe switch

2011-03-02 Thread Brad Belton
Hello Kevin,

 

I'd be interested depending on how many ports you think this device would
have.  It seems 12 ports would be a good compromise.  If a HUB site requires
more than 12 ports then that site should easily justify another $450 in
equipment, IMO.

 

Would surge suppression be included similar to whatever basic surge
suppression is found in today's PoE's?  

 

24VDC output would probably be our preference too.  Are you saying the DC
input would be adjustable or are you looking for a consensus?

 

1U shallow depth rack mount is pretty much a requirement for us.

 

Keep us posted.

 

Best,

 

 

Brad

Re: [WISPA] non-802.3 rackmount poe switch

2011-02-28 Thread Brad Belton
And here I am thinking all this time that I was the only one who would
appreciate a device like this!  I spoke with someone at Streakwave a few
months ago about this and basically got a blank stare response.  He had no
idea why I would want such a thing..sigh

 

So, to any manufacturers up to the task, here is (IMO) a starting point of a
bullet point list for the PoE device I'm envisioning:

 

(1)  Multi-port models.  (e.g. 6, 12  24 ports) 

(2)  SNMP  Web Interface Management with ACL firewall.

(3)  Redundant power supplies with separate power cords.  (e.g. UPS Blue 
UPS Red)

(4)  Dip switch DC polarity selectable per port.  (e.g. Trango/Canopy vs.
UBNT, etc.)

(5)  Dip switch 12VDC, 24VDC, 48VDC passive and standard 802.3af selectable
per port.

(6)  1U shallow depth form factor.

(7)  Auto-Ping per port.

(8)  LED Status indicators per port.

(9)  Optional DC power source model for solar sites?

(10)  Optional Trango Apex/Orion GigE model?

 

 

What else would be beneficial in the design of this PoE controller?

Re: [WISPA] non-802.3 rackmount poe switch

2011-02-28 Thread Brad Belton
Exactly.  I think those of that want a device like this clearly understand
it will cost more than 24 PoEs!  I doubt 24 PoEs will give you power
redundancy, Auto-Ping, etc, etc all the features we are looking for.

 

Granted some of the options I listed are not needed for my particular needs
or possibly the next guy either, but I wanted to throw a few extra ideas
into the pot just to see if there is interest.

 

Depending on the feature set that is ultimately offered I would be willing
to pay in the $500 range.  Add up the costs of a remote reboot, power
supplies, etc, etc to match this proposed PoE Controller and then consider
the pros vs. cons of each method.

 

I would also hesitate to assert the market is demanding something cheap.
Many of us here are well beyond the cheaper is better philosophy and are
able/willing to pay more for a better product.  Adding a $500 or even $1000
to the overall cost of a HUB site for these features from a high quality
device is well within reason, IMO.

 

Best,

 

 

Brad

The problem becomes that something with all those options are going to be
more expensive than 6,12,24 PoE's.  The market is demanding something cheap,

You have all of these people bringing water up from the well (the water is

bottles, etc. and distributing them to others.  One day the well runs dry.
This does not mean you are out of water because you have all these people
out there who have bottled water they can sell to others.  They just can't
go back to the well and get more.  What they have is what they have.


As someone else said, the fat lady has not yet sung, but she is on stage and
the curtain is being lifted. This is a very real problem and does need to be
addressed. 


No, it's not a real problem.  I liken it to the exhaust of homesteads in the
past century.  You used to be able to go to a land office and ask for your
40 acres.  Then they ran out.  But you could still buy a farm from somebody
who previously had a homestead.

The B-team kidz who developed IPv6 (if you're too young to remember the IPNG
process in the 1990 time frame, don't attack my characterization) did not
think much about transition, and forgot about compatibility.  The resulting
transition plan is dual stack, meaning that you need to run IPv4 until
everyone is running IPv6.  Since IPv4 necessarily outperforms the higher
overhead IPv6, there's little reason to not use v4.  Since you thus need v4
addresses anyway, the market will reallocate them, just as the market
reallocated farmland.  If there turns out to be some real scarcity in the
future, then the price will rise, and IPv4 addresses will be used more
efficiently (more NAT, more use of private address space, etc.), and more
large-block holders will release some to the market.

Funny how much Frame Relay got done with a 10-bit address space.

LOL, funny how my history teacher was right about his saying, history
repeats itself.

I remember being on the isp-wireless list and getting emailed about one
sentence responses and emailed everyone I was done. So Mike started up the
Part-15 lists.

Then it went from there to WISPA.

Then splintered to AFMUG and Butch's Mikrotik list.

Now we may be back to WISPA and the new wug.cc , although I do believe in
neutrality, but no hard core bashing. Be a little mature ( although it's
hard to say what age this begins ) about posts and put some forethought in
responses.

Oh I almost forgot wisp-equipment, Judd's list.

 Um people bash WISPA on this list occasionally. It's usually not 
 warranted. There are a few trolls that like to make trouble. Why do 
 you feel that we can't bash WISPA on this list? If there are 
 legitimate concerns with the organization, and one feels they are a 
 threat to the industry, then voice them.

 Also going on a list and complaining usually doesn't get anything done.
 It just wastes peoples time and bandwidth. If someone has 
 constructive criticism, and a well reasoned argument/position, that 
 will get something done.

 I've subscribed to the WUG list. Hopefully it will be interesting and 
 not a waste of time, however I will probably start various new 
 threads on the WISPA list, as it has served my and many others needs
quite well.
 I've been on the list since 2008 and been very happy with it. 
 Numerous products/services/organizations have been praised when 
 necessary, and called out when necessary. So I'm not quite sure the 
 purpose of the WUG list.

 We will see what the WUG list does. My initial feelings, is that it 
 will be a fringe list that ends up doing a lot of harm to the industry.
 Journalists will see lots of trolling and pick that out as the face 
 of the industry, because it makes better material for the 
 sensationalist media.

 I realize that as business owners, we have very strong opinions and 
 value our independence and rights. However we must also keep in mind 
 that we as an industry are under attack on a continuous basis. WISPA 
 has provided a focal point for us to coalesce around as an industry. 
 They have continuously shown a deep understanding of how to keep the 
 industry growing. They have produced a number of products (3.65 regs, 
 whitespaces, dfrs etc.) These end products take substantial amounts 
 of time and effort to produce. They have seen how the sausage is 
 made, and not been afraid to get their hands dirty.

 I hope to join WISPA in the near future and contribute my support. 
 I've been slowly ramping up my WISP and preparing to roll out a broad
beta.

 I should get back to that now, have a demo due by the end of the week

 Hi,

 In an effort to create a neutral discussion forum, a new mailing 
 list has been created called Wireless Users Group. This list is 
 100% free, and is not tied to any product or service being sold. It 
 is hosted on a free server, with free bandwidth and free 
 administration. No fees or vendor sponsorship will ever be asked by
this new list.

 To subscribe to this new list, send an email to 
 users-requ...@wug.cc with subscribe in the subject field.

 We support many of the wireless pioneers in this industry such as 
 Motorola, Wireless Beehive, and WISPA. We would just prefer a 
 vendor neutral list that allows discussion of any product (whether 
 good or bad) so that we can all learn.

2011-01-21 Thread Brad Belton
Nice to see products like this developing and being made available, but it
still misses the mark by not including SFP ports.  Also, the GigE port count
is far too few.  Six?  Need more like 24 or 48 ports!  grin

 

USB ports are great to see on this router!  Good job there and what IMO
should be mandatory on all HUB site or core based routers.

Baltic Networks introduced a new low-cost 6 Port Gigabit Router Powered by
MikroTik at the Animal Farm Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah

January 14, 2011

 

Aurora, Illinois - Baltic Networks introduced MaxxWave RouterMaxx 1106T, a
new low cost 6-port Gigabit Router powered by IntelR newest technology, the
CoreT2 Quad/, the CoreT2 Duo Processor at the Animal Farm Expo.  RouterMaxx
1106T runs on the MikroTik RouterOS platform and by combining it with the
latest Intel technology, it is the next-generation commercial-grade gigabit
router.  Based on the latest Intel 82574L Gigabit Chipset and utilizing 6
independent Intel gigabit controllers and a multi-core CPU, it's possible to
achieve over 200,000pps.  The product provides performance up to 3 times
faster than MikroTik's flagship product, the RB/1100. RouterMaxx 1106T
competes directly with MikroTik RB/1100, Cisco and LinkTech PowerRouterT.

 

Brian Vargyas, Managing Director at Baltic Networks, said: We felt that
there was a need to bring in the next generation gigabit router to the
market, given that the existing products on the market are all based on the
technology that is either out of date or not providing enough port power for
commercial-grade applications.  Teaming up with MikroTik and MaxxWave, this
next product represents a further step ahead in Baltic Networks' strategy,
aimed at providing low-cost and ready-to-deploy solutions.

 

RouterMaxx 6T Features:

 

- Fanless Desktop Size

- 1U Rackmount Bracket Optional

- Runs RouterOS V5+

- Level 4 RouterOS license included

- 1.6Ghz Dual Core Intel Atom Processor

- 6 Intel 82574L / 82583V Gigabit controllers (Supports Jumbo Frames) 

- 1 GB DDR2 800 RAM

- 1 mPCI-E internal slot for expansion (3G/4G Wireless Cards)

- 2 GB Flash

- 2 USB 2.0 Ports

- 1 RJ45 Console Port (Includes RJ45 to DB9 Console Cable)

- 1 2.5 Open HDD Spaces -- Includes SATA Cables - Use for Web Proxy Cache

- MTBF over 100,000 Hours

- Low power consumption of 15Watts (+2 Watts per port running)

 

Power: 100-240Vac, .5-3A, 50/60Hz  (12Vdc 5A Max)

Tested Operational Temperature:  -20C to 70C

Dimensions: 1.4H x 7.4W x 5.7D

Weight: 2.6lb

Re: [WISPA] Email Accounts

2010-12-15 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed.  VMware is amazing.  Server management is no longer cumbersome and
with HA (high availability) running there are no more hardware worries.
Servers are no longer rack-mounted boxes, but instead just files we can drag
- drop - copy - start - stop - upgrade - downgrade with a click of a mouse.

The power savings are terrific too.  Fewer servers (hosts) running = power
savings.  Less heat generated in datacenter means fewer Liebert A/C systems
running = power savings.  More datacenter floor space to sell...virtual
servers are better in every aspect.

Best,

Brad

Re: [WISPA] Email Accounts

2010-12-15 Thread Brad Belton
I'm sure that would largely depend on the host or hosts platform you are
using for the virtual servers.  Ours is a Dell blade chassis with M610
blades currently attached to 7TB of 15K drives.  We haven't seen any I/O
issues...

Just because you can spin up 100 servers on one host doesn't mean that's a
good idea!  The great thing about VMware is its ability to constantly
monitor all servers and manage your total host resource pool to maximize
your hardware utilization.  As our CPU, RAM or HDD needs increase we simply
add additional blades (hosts) and additional storage.  We can manually
migrate virtual servers away from any particular host that we want to remove
or take down for maintenance without losing a single ping to the server
being migrated.  Ok, maybe I saw one ping lost once doing this...

Great stuff...can't say enough good about VMware and their support.  Dell
support has been fantastic too.

Best,


Brad

I have heard that for I/O intensive applications they are not a good choice.

Subject: [WISPA] Licensed 11ghz Link Issues, Need Advice

I have a Dragonwave link that was performing about 35-40db lower than the
link budget says it should.  I sent tower climbers up to repeak the link and
found they did have it on aligned on a horizontal side lobe.  
After re-peaking it got better, but is now about 15-20db lower than the link
budget.  It is running about a -52 and the budget calls for a -34.  
They did peak the vertical axis, but is it possible that even though both
antennas were mounted plum, that they are aligned on a vertical side lobe.
Like I said, they did say they peaked the vertical, but I don't know if they
did a proper sweep on the vertical because it is not a quick to do as on the
horizontal.  They are both plum, but the antennas have about 300ft of
vertical separation at 5 miles.  Would difference in height put them in into
a vertical side lobe?  I am asking because the 30in antenna's had come
slightly damaged, but it appeared to just be where the raydom attached to
the dish.  Dragonwave did not think this would cause an issue.  I just need
to know if I need to pay for 2 more tower climbs to re-peak the vertical, or
take down the dishes to return them.  Thank you in advance for any advice
that can be given here.  By the way, it is our first licensed link, so it is
my first experience with anything above 5ghz.

Re: [WISPA] Licensed 11ghz Hops

2010-11-05 Thread Brad Belton
That was my next reply to Josh.what series or model of Ceragon has he used.
All our Ceragon links have been the older Fibeair 1500 series.  There were a
few re-branded versions of this radio for Nortel and maybe another name too.
I think even Lockheed or General Dynamics had these relabeled under their
name.

 

Agreed, while price is always important we feel a solid product with good
support is paramount.  While Trango may have had some early firmware issues
they have been responsive and resolved any issues that resulted in a down
link situation.

Best,

 

 

Brad

Ceragon today is NOT the same Ceragon it was 3 years ago.  

Unlike many here when it comes to choosing equipment I don't chase the price
point.  I look at who supplies the outstanding support.  I look for the
company that has my back when I am up against the wall with a dead link.

And until someone can blow away their delivery schedule and their
technical/customer support, Dragonwave is my company of choice for licensed
microwave. Radio clips to the antenna, POE, simple interface, easy equipment
replacement.  

And most importantly.  the sh*t works!  

I can't remember EVER needing to do a firmware upgrade on a Dragonwave radio
to make it work right. I can't say that for many of the other manufacturers
and I have installed a lot of different equipment over the years.

You coordinate two paths.  We have a Trango GigaLINK 6GHz link using two
radio pairs and a combiner plate attaching to one antenna on each end.  One
radio set is V the other is H.  Gives us twice the capacity (165MB x 2) plus
failover in the event one ODU or IDU fails plus Frequency diversity for
higher overall availability.

No, I do not think so.  FCC limits 11GHz channel size to 40MHz.  However,
165 + 165 = 330, so that gets you beyond 300MB in 6GHz with a combiner and
265 + 265 = 530 in 11GHz with a combiner plate.

If we can pretty much set 'em and forget 'em then they're ok in our book.

Re: [WISPA] Full BGP on RouterOS

2010-11-02 Thread Brad Belton
We've been running BGP with MikroTik for quite some time now.  It hasn't
been flawless by any stretch, but ever since late v2.8 or early v2.9 we
haven't had much trouble with it.  We running v3.30 on two routers with two
full feeds each and a third running v4.11 with two full feeds.  All of these
routers have a handful of downstream BGP peers that we are also delivering
full tables to.

So far I think v4.11 might be the best, but we don't have as much time on
that version as we do with v3.30.  The only reason we moved one of our
routers from v3.30 to v4.11 was because we had an unusual hang with that
particular router.  We weren't sure if it was hardware or OS related,
however moving it to v4.11 seems to have resolved the problem.  (knock on
wood)

Bottom line is given the price of a beefy MikroTik router vs. buying an
Imagestream or Cisco that is equivalent we can have hot standby spares on
hand and still be thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars ahead.  That
coupled with building a network that isn't solely dependent on any single
point of failure further reduces the crisis when a core router fails. 

Things break...doesn't matter if MikroTik, ImageStream, Cisco or Juniper
makes it.   ALL things break eventually, so plan for it!

Best,


Brad

 Hi,

 Does anyone have 1-2 full BGP routing tables on a MikroTik router? If 
 so, what kind of hardware are you running. I'm testing a single feed 
 on a P3 800. It loads the routes fine, and seems to handle the routes 
 in stride (all 328659 of them), until you start poking at the routing 
 table like...

 /ip route print count-only where bgp-as-path=1234

 An AS that yielded 500 routes took 1-2 minutes at 100% CPU to complete.
 Is this normal these days, or is significantly greater hardware in 
 order? I used to have a full feed on a Cisco 3640. It took 5-10 
 minutes to load all of the routes after a reload, and it was almost 
 impossible to log in, high packet loss, etc. during that time.

 So, should it take 10 seconds on real hardware, or is this type of 
 query always slow?

 Thanks,

Re: [WISPA] Full BGP on RouterOS

2010-11-02 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed.  Breaking about once a month or possibly even more frequently than
that is what we started to see with one of our v3.30 BGP routers.  This was
after flawless performance for many, many months.  This is why we initially
felt it might be a hardware issue.

MikroTik Support response was simply to upgrade to current version (v4.11),
so we did.  That was about 50-60days ago I think?  Since then the router
hasn't had any trouble, so we're feeling pretty good about it.  If it
happens again or the hardware is/was the issue and it ultimately fails; we
have an exact matching router racked up right beneath it ready to go.
Eventually we may have Butch help us setup VRRP or some other method to tie
the two routers together and keep both routers running all the time.

We bring in multiple upstream GigE feeds from diverse geographical locations
into our network, so losing a BGP router doesn't necessarily mean the
network goes down...we just lose that particular peering point.

Best,


Brad

This is exactly what I am concerned with.
Things breaking once in a while is not an issue..
Things breaking once every month or few weeks is not going to be acceptable
from our users..

Trying to determine if this is a 'feature' or a short term 'bug'.

Cisco's and Junipers, get a premium even in the used market place, but the
primary reason for it is stability...

Any other that can chime in with their experiences ?

Many thanks in advance.

 We've been running BGP with MikroTik for quite some time now.  It

 two routers with two full feeds each and a third running v4.11 with 
 two full feeds.  All of these routers have a handful of downstream 
 BGP peers that we are also delivering full tables to.

 So far I think v4.11 might be the best, but we don't have as much 
 time on that version as we do with v3.30.  The only reason we moved 
 one of our routers from v3.30 to v4.11 was because we had an unusual 
 hang with that particular router.  We weren't sure if it was hardware 
 or OS related, however moving it to v4.11 seems to have resolved the 
 problem.  (knock on
 wood)

 Bottom line is given the price of a beefy MikroTik router vs. buying 
 an Imagestream or Cisco that is equivalent we can have hot standby 
 spares on hand and still be thousands if not tens of thousands of 
 dollars ahead.  That coupled with building a network that isn't 
 solely dependent on any single point of failure further reduces the
crisis when a core router fails.

 Things break...doesn't matter if MikroTik, ImageStream, Cisco or Juniper
 makes it.   ALL things break eventually, so plan for it!

 If so, what kind of hardware are you running. I'm testing a single

 1 for laptop access when technician is there

Strictly Mikrotik options for this include:

RB1100 - not available at this time due to backorders and EVERY distributor.


RB800 + RB816 - The 816 board is around, but the RB800 (like the 1100) is
hard to come by.

RB1100 will be around $400 and the RB800 with expansion will be around
$475-500.  RB1100 has 13GigE ports while the RB800+816 will have 19 total
ports with 3 GigE and 16 10/100.  FWIW, they both have the same processor
and (I think) the same memory.  

If timing is of essence, then one of the other routers that are out there
are your only choice.  Every distributor is giving a time frame, but nobody
really knows.  

 It says thirteen individual gigabit ethernet ports, two 5-port switch 
 groups, and includes ethernet bypass capability
 
 The two questions I have:
 
 1. The 5-port switch groups... Does this mean that the individual 
 ports can't be routed independently of the other 4 ports in the switch
group?

No.  It means that you have the ability to configure 2 groups of actual
switch ports.  In other words, if you chose to do so, you could have 2
switches + 3 additional ports all in the same box.

 2. The ethernet bypass capability... What's the application for this?

This just means that when the router loses power (for whatever reason),
there is a pair of ports that will still pass ethernet traffic.  This would
be useful in the case where you have another device that (or pair of
devices) that may not rely on the same power source.  I have not seen a good
example of where this will be useful in any WISP/tower configuration, though
I am certain there may be some out there.

I'm happy to work with you on getting the right parts, but like everyone
else, I am at the mercy of MT and the shippers.  I would hope that you
consider purchasing from my own store, given the time I'm investing in
trying to help you understand your options (link is below).

If the distance is really long beyond site, such as 20-30miles, I'd agree.
But if say LOS within 10 miles or so on a clear day, its pretty easy.

 

After our tech eye balls the alignment, I'll usually have the tech do a fine
align just in case we can improve it. BUt 9 out of 10 times, it was not
necessary and maybe we'll gain a half DB. 

 

The secret to aligning dishes is to look through the feed hole before the
feed is screwed in. (for example PAC wireless parabolic dish). You then home
in on the far side area aiming for, positionioned in cetner of hole, and
make sure the Ring around the hole appears equal size all around to verify
it is aligned.  Because the hole has metal around it that has DEPTH, maybe
1/4-1/2 inch, you can see the depth of this inside surface all around the
hole.  

 

As matter of fact, if we dont get our link budget acheieve and we need to
trouble shoot why, we check cables first, because the odds of having a bad
cable is higher than the tech getting the first alignment attempt wrong. 

 

Panels are harder to align, because looking from the side.

 

Sure it can be harder to align a big dish with radome that does not have a
removable feed.

Re: [WISPA] Akamai / other caching servers

2010-09-03 Thread Brad Belton
You guys have it all wrong IMO and should be counting your blessings that
$1000 T1's still exist out there.  Those are the areas a WISP can excel by
offering a better valued service.  Once all the $1000 T1's go away so will
the little guys...YOU!

Location - Location - Location

Absolutely location makes a difference in bandwidth cost regardless of who
is providing service.  If not, you're saying providing service to your
neighbor is the same as providing service to a friend in another county.
What about your tower, additional radios, additional infrastructure support
costs that you will incur to provide this service to Uncle Jeb's farm in the
middle of nowhere?  Does it really cost you the same to provide service in
both these examples?  I think not.

There is no benefit being the first in the race to $0.00...enjoy the fact
there are hundreds if not thousands of markets across America where WISPs
are needed because of the $1000k T1.

 Its possible to prevent Squid from caching certain sites. Just create an

 If you don't want your proxy requests sourced from a single IP then use

 proxy can be fully transparent appearing as if the requests were sourced

 Get a Cisco router and redirect traffic to Squid using WCCP. If your 
 Squid box dies the router automatically stops redirecting the traffic, 
 and your users continue to surf the web normally.

Re: [WISPA] Good Source for Rackmount Servers?

2010-08-24 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed.  We've run HP and Dell servers for years and have been happy, but we
had no idea what we were missing once we virtualized everything.  

 

We purchased a Dell blade chassis and three blade servers to start with.
Loaded VMware and have been blown away with the performance, availability,
power savings and features.  A server to us now amounts to just a file
within VMware that we can copy, backup or move wherever we please with a
simple cut  paste.  If VMware sees a server go down or a host within your
cluster fail it will automatically fire up the affected servers on a
different host.  Really cool stuff.

 

The chassis will hold 16 blades, but just the three blades we have now are
probably 100x the power of the two 42U cabinets stuffed with servers they
replaced!

Running and beginning to migrate to our own VoIP platform was the deciding
reason we went with a blade setup.  

 

Redundancy - Redundancy - Redundancy

 

Everything is redundant and has built-in failover with alarm notification.
Things break and there's no way around that fact, so layer on the redundancy
to keep the bits flowing while you fix what broke.  grin

Unfortunately, these servers are going to be geographically dispersed, and
doing things that cannot really be virtualized.   Three will be doing
NAT/policy routing, three will be running our bandwidth tracking software,
three will be terminating VOIP and one will be a network monitoring server
running Nagios/Xymon/etc etc.

2010-08-24 Thread Brad Belton
There's one in the Dell Outlet right now for $9919.00 with 15 2TB 7.2K RPM 
drives.  About 7-15x the storage you're looking for depending on how you 
configure.  I think that's about what we paid for 15 750GB 15K RPM drives.  

Dell put together a complete turn-key package for us including the VMwave 
licensing  platinum support, storage, chassis, blades, Dell support and 
warranty.  We were lucky and found most of what we needed in the Dell Outlet 
saving us a good amount of money.  We didn't see any reason not to go with the 
outlet gear because it has the same warranty as new Dell gear.

Re: [WISPA] POE Switch

2010-08-11 Thread Brad Belton
The picture of the device in the PDF sure looks more like a four port/device
product than an eight port/device product.  It only shows four (1-4) LED
indicator lights and it appears the top four ports are labeled as Data and
the corresponding bottom four ports are labeled as POE.  This leads me to
believe it functions more like four PoE or DC injectors in one box than an
eight port switch.  

IMO, a design like I describe would be more desirable anyway as many
operators dedicate each backhaul radio or AP to its own port on a router
anyway.  We do not tie any of our radios at HUB sites to a common switch.
We use multi-interface x86 MikroTik routers at HUB sites or RB493AH routers
and route each sector or backhaul radio on its own port.

I like the voltage flexibility it offers (12V-58V) and the ability to use
redundant power supplies.  What I'd like to see is something similar to
this, but in a compact, shallow depth 1U form, higher port count (maybe 12
or 16 ports) and the ability to reverse polarity via dip switch or jumper
setting on a per port basis.  It also doesn't have to be an active Ethernet
device (just another Ethernet chip to worry about failing), but make it a
passive Ethernet pass through like most DC injectors are designed.

Best,


Brad

Re: [WISPA] POE Switch

2010-08-11 Thread Brad Belton
The Tycon Power Midspan injectors look promising, but like you said they
need to add redundant power supply inputs and switches/jumpers to reverse
voltage polarity in order to support more products.  Sure would be nice if
they added the current indicator too so you know if the radio up top is
plugged in/powered up or not.  Lightening surge suppressor on each port is
also a must have for a device like this.

Hopefully their design team is listening to people like us!

Best,


Brad

I was more interested in a 4/8 port POE device with redundant power supply
inputs and switches/jumpers to reverse polarity. I called and spoke with
Tycon and described this and he said to look for something around end of
Sept/Early Oct. I guess they had something like this in the works.

Combine that with a managed switch or a Router Board and it's a nice clean

We played with The Dude a few months ago and while we were very impressed
with some of the information provided we also saw stability issues.  We also
really wanted a system that would geo-tag (? Not sure if that's the right
term), but that would allow you to zoom in and out on a mapping program.

We have been running the www.wispmon.com program and have been very pleased
with it.  The built-in profile tool is a huge benefit and is much faster
than firing up Radio Mobile.

remaining.  Then sends us an email again once power is restored and again
updates the remaining battery life.  Works well, but unfortunately the
RB493AH doesn't have a USB port for the standard included APC USB

We have many of the Digital Loggers eight port rack mount remote power

similar results from the Digital Logger rack mount 8 port?  They're a great
value at $200-$300, but not if we keep seeing failures...

Cameron - Nick,

No kidding, an internal battery will render the unit unreachable even after
a hard factory reset?  Good to know.  I guess I'll order a couple more
replacements, so I can then crack open the ones that have become doorstops
and check them out.

Thanks,

 I found out what causes this. There is a small battery inside that
 loses its ability to keep a charge. Once this happens, the thing goes
 back to defaults at every reboot. You can get a replacement at
 batteries plus. It looks like a double a, but is some li variant.

Re: [WISPA] Missing Bridgewave

2010-07-13 Thread Brad Belton
While we are not a large customer of BridgeWave, we have purchased and
deployed a handful of AR80X-AES radios.  BridgeWave has always been
extremely responsive to any technical issues we experienced as well as an
overall great company to work with in all aspects.  We will continue to
purchase and deploy BridgeWave equipment.  

I encourage all WISPA members to strongly consider BridgeWave products if
they require a GigE line speed radio.

Regarding this particular issue with an installer losing a radio; there is
too little information provided to take much of any credible stance on it.

Best,

Allthough, I generally dislike policies that only sell radios in pairs, 
their is a flip side.

60Ghz radios are tougher to make work togeather than other freqs. Its very 
important that the power levels of each radio side are closely matched. 
60Ghz radios are usually tested and certified in pairs at the factory, in 
order to be able to guarantee the proper operation of a pair.  A number of 
times, when we used 60Ghz radios (a brand other than brodgewave) and tried 
to mismatch radios from different pairs, often the links would not work 
properly.

It may be necessary to send the single radio to bridgewave to be matched 
with a new second side radio, and tuned and certified as a new pair. There 
could be a significant cost to that.

I do not want to speak for BRidgewave, I'm just saying It can be more 
complicated than just having Bridgewave sell and send a single radio out as 
a replacement, when dealing with 60Ghz.

You are being copied live on a WISPA email list server.  According to

pairs instead of one radio even in a hardship situation like this.
That really sounds like you are bullying the customer to me. So here

this your policy? Are you going to help this operator or not? Remember
that the future ability for you to sell to operators representing a

As Travis said make sure you've issued the tftpd on command, but also make
sure your router isn't blocking or firewalling the traffic from reaching the
radios.  Do your radios have a valid ipconfig with a good gateway?

Those of you that use this equipment do you recommend using the supplied 
connectors for ethernet only or do you seal around them with additional 
material like coax seal or similar?  

I have never liked connectors that have cables enter from the sides into 
the equipment even with the fancy seal connectors provided.  I just don't 
want to have a problem and was curious what you guys do to keep the water 
out or if what is provided is sufficient.

Re: [WISPA] FiberTower for backhauling ?

2010-05-20 Thread Brad Belton
We've leased 38GHz spectrum from FiberTower (actually the company prior to
FiberTower) for several years now.  We also have one very small fiber PtP
circuit from them simply because they had some available bandwidth between
two common sites and it was easier (which is rare) for us to have them
provide the loop than do it ourselves.

All in all FiberTower has been easy to work with, but our situation may be
different than some as we share common some sites together.

YMMV and I agree they are typically geared towards cellular carriers and not
smaller providers.

pay for it.
I was assuming you were asking about backhaul bandwidth.

Ok, I think we finally fixed it. It was only happening when it was hot 
becauseof a loose wire. The PS that came from Trango already had the 
power connector on it, so we didn't check the set screws that hold the wires

into the connector. While I was troubleshooting today, one of the wires fell

out. Both set screws were so loose, I'm suprised they stayed in long enough 
for us to mount the equipment. I tightened them down, and the problem seems 
to be solved.

 Sure its possible to have a radio that is failing. All I can say isthe
 easiest and quickest thing to do is to 100% rule out everything else.
 I have to admit, I jumped to think I had a bad radio twice, even go the
 replacements shipped, and both times it ended up being cabling after all.
 The Apexes are pretty solid.

 There are so many possible ways CAT5 can go bad. And I know, the odds of 
 two
 cables going bad, (the management and Data) doesn't sound likey, but its
 possible.
 the APEX can be powered up by ether management or data cable. You might 
 want
 to try powering from the other one.

 For cable damage, the big things are corrosion on the pins, or a bad crimp
 to one of the pins. Those things are hard to spot, and dont always surface
 for 6 months or so.. Cable blows in the wind, link goes down, or overheats
 or shuts down because not getting enough current or to much while shorting
 out.

 Now when the APEXs first came out (like the first batch) there was a
 manufacturering flaw with a part that I think effected Ethernet life, but
 Trango proactively recalled them, like days after they shipped, and gave
 free repairs on it. (I was impressed, very responsibly done) But that was
 ages ago.

 It's been running six months without a dropped packet. Cable run is ~100
 feet, maybe a little less. We were powering it over the data port, but we
 switched to the management port today. We checked the power output on the
 PS, and with the power supply plugged into the power injector, but the
 radio
 not actually working, we got -47.8v. That makes me think it is unlikely 
 to
 be an actual power supply issue.

I'm starting to wonder if it is heat related somehow. The problem
 started at around 10:00am today, and now that it's nearing six and 
 cooling
 down, the link came back up and started working fine. I can't think what
 else it would be related to... maybe the power injector doesn't like it
 when
 it gets warm? I have a new power injector coming from Trango -- I'm
 thinking
 maybe the current power injector has a bad component that doesn't react
 well
 to heat.

Possibly with the Trango rack mount style power supplies (have to go look at
one to confirm) or a third party power suppliy, but not with the Trango
laptop power supply style.  

We were using the Trango laptop style PS on this particular Apex as it was a
single client user with VERY limited space.  There was no room for even a 1U
power supply!  Now that's limited space!  Lol

Re: [WISPA] Alvarion VL Users

Hello Adam,

Good information to know.  Yes, our experience with VL was some time
ago...well before 5.5.26 for sure!  

I can't believe I'm saying this, but we may have an application for a VL
deployment in a desert at some point.  We're looking for a PtMP system with
AES256 and I'm pretty sure VL has it.  Not sure if there are any other PtMP
products out there with AES256, but if a vendor reads this and has such a
critter feel free to send me information off list.

Hi Brad,
Alvarion firmware 5.5.26 and above have some decent mechanisms to deal with
noise and flooded RF environments. However, the clients need to have a
decent receive level (roughly -65 or better) if the noise floor is higher
than -90 in order to keep traffic flowing decently. There are a couple other
mechanisms internally to the radio such as Noise Immunity controls and a few
others. 5.5 and above is almost a requirement when running Alvarion VL
equipment. Anything below 5.5 doesn't show noise floor or RSSI (they only
show SNR, which is just weird).

 Give the facts, give the opinion, leave the radical commentary for the
 other
 lists for people who share your views and want to hear it.


 Company Man.
 It's a term used at times to describe someone who is engaged by the top
 management to work among the producers, to make sure that nobody
 rebelled,
 everyone followed policy, and to give management notice if anyone tended
 to
 be outspoken or lead complaining about things ythat were wrong.   Their
 job
 was to help squelch or otherwise shut down disagreement with the top
 brass.
 Often spies for management, to find out who to get rid of.   Generally a
 derogative term.   Used deliberately by me.
 Let's imagine, if you will, that instead of being a nation, we're just a
 big
 company.   After all, the job of politics is little more than to force
 people to behave certain ways, spend the money they earn for what the 
 top
 brass want.
 Today, almost 3 of every 10 dollars of income is spent by the
 administrations.   That is, management consumes, without investing a
 penny
 in productivity, almost 1/3 of all the company revenues. This year,
 the
 company will spend almost twice what it takes in in revenues.   The rest
 will be borrowed in the name of the employees.   Every management
 function
 of the central office is duplicated by the state offices.   They do not
 agree on the rule in the books that you must follow.Almost every
 management function of the state administration is duplicated at the
 central
 office, as well.   Again, the rules are not the same.And in spite of
 all
 that spending, NOTHING IS INVESTED IN IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY.Nor has
 it
 been in at least a couple decades.
 Despite the fact that nobody in the main office produces anything, has
 any
 idea how to do anything the company does, and the hiring policy requires
 neither experience nor knowledge of what is produced,  the main office
 has
 produced so many rules about how to run it, that their office building
 that
 houses JUST THE PRINTOUTS was in danger of collapsing under the weight.
 And that's just the paperwork about former employee medical benefits.  (
 google for story of VA offices threatened by the sheer weight of case
 files
 backlogged)
 The main office spends about 1 of every 3 dollars that the company takes
 in,
 and it controls additionally about 2 of every 10 dollars the company
 brings
 in, but it does so simply by requiring others to spend it - none of 
 which
 is
 invested in productivity - almost all is spent to PREVENT productivity.
 In addition to that, the main office confiscates 17% of every employee's
 paycheck to spend, and promises that when you retire, it'll pay it back
 to
 you... in payments - if you live long enough.Further,  it takes

Re: [WISPA] Best Backhaul link 11Ghz 20 miles @ 100MB?

2010-04-21 Thread Brad Belton
Hello Scott,

Yes, the links will work great until you have a heavy rain.  Talk to Travis
about the 38GHz links he has running at several miles with great uptime.
Great uptime because he's nearly running them in a vacuum environment...IMO!
lol  Unfortunately you and I do not enjoy such an RF friendly environment
for our paths.

Right now most of our 11GHz links are Trango GigaLINK which are the split
architecture design (we required coax runs) and may not be as powerful as
the Apex.  We have a few Apex 11GHz links up and they do seem to perform
better, but none of them are as long as some of our GigaLINK paths.  The
Apex also has a much better hitless modulation shift than the Giga, so
your overall experience during rain fade events will be better with an Apex
than a Giga.

Agreed, our sites have alternate paths to fail to during rain fade or in the
event of equipment failure.  However, there is still a momentary drop in
service and we strive for as close to 100% availability as possible.  With
the proliferation of VoIP running across our network our clients demand it!

Four nines always sounds great and looks great on paper, but it never seems
to occur when no one is watching!  That hour of estimated downtime is always
at the worst time.  grin

I'm happy to offer any additional help with your Trango gear offlist if you
want to bounce configuration or other specific questions that may come up.

Best,


Brad

Hey Brad...  I'm not familiar with this gear (or any at 11Ghz).  Trango ran 
the analysis and came back with 4 9's for the link. There was about 35db 
rain fade margin at 100Mb rate. 

I assume maybe a problem in a torrential downpour but will a good ole 
regular rain take the link out?  I've got burstable bandwidth that can 
cutover when / if the link goes down on 95th percentile usage so if it 
doesn't happen often it shouldn't be noticed or matter.  Just want to get 
the 100Mb from the other city when available cause its less expensive.

I'm actually considering two back-to-back apex links 18 mile hop on first 
one and 25 mile hop on next one.  Numbers look good on the link path

Ceragon is great gear, but a good bit more expensive than Trango Apex.  

11Ghz will easily rain fade at 20miles in our K or M rain zone.  We have
14mile 11GHz links that have faded with rain I can't imagine Florida with 
a
N rain zone (the worst rain zone in N America) will be a good place for a

I guess it just depends on what level of availability your path requires.

 Trango Apex is on top of my list for now.  If that needs to change let

 Kinda sticking to 11Ghz because I need to keep the dishes at 4ft or

Re: [WISPA] Best Backhaul link 11Ghz 20 miles @ 100MB?

2010-04-20 Thread Brad Belton
Ceragon is great gear, but a good bit more expensive than Trango Apex.  

11Ghz will easily rain fade at 20miles in our K or M rain zone.  We have
14mile 11GHz links that have faded with rain I can't imagine Florida with a
N rain zone (the worst rain zone in N America) will be a good place for a
long 11Ghz path much less 20 mile path!

I guess it just depends on what level of availability your path requires.

Best,


Brad

Re: [WISPA] Part 15 Operation in the 10500 - 10550 Mhz

2010-04-19 Thread Brad Belton
Funny you bring this up.  I mentioned this to Trango some time ago (after
they shelved their MP product) and asked if they could develop a PtMP system
in the 10GHz band.  They were unaware of any Part15 spectrum in 10GHz.

So, the question to all our vendors today is:  Is there 50MHz Part15
spectrum available in the 10GHz band?

Best,


Brad

Can it be used for PTP? Like 24 Ghz?

Re: [WISPA] Switch recommendations

2010-04-19 Thread Brad Belton
Agreed.  Stick with what works for you.  If you've been happy with Dell then
why change?  We've been very happy with our Dell switches.  HP switches are
also great, but we've settled on Dell.

If you've had good luck with Dell, might as well stick with 'em.

Assuming you don't need anything really fancy in terms of management
features, the Dell PowerConnect 5448 might fit the bill, and it's usually
available for under $1000 (possibly way under $1000 if you have a good Dell
sales rep).

I've just rolled out a few 5424s (same thing only with 24 ports instead of
48), and they work well enough. You don't get some of the fancy features
like Q-in-Q, but that's not a problem for most smaller outfits.

Hi All, 

I do not recommend this if your router is still under warranty/support.
Adding 3rd party hardware to the box will void whatever is left.

 Well, for that many NIC included, you got a steal.
 A single 4port Intel oem Gig card PCI-e costs $430 new.

 (Actually that is probably not true, cause its probably an older 
 model that doesn't have PCI-E nic cards.)

  I don't mind the three living ImageStream TransPort routers we

 I am not much of a fan of the interface configuration, though it is 
 currently more flexible and transparent than pfSense for multiple 
 subnets on the same interface.  The shellcmd plugin lets me have a 
 GUI to get around the current inadaquacy of the interface 
 configuration GUI of pfSense 1.2.3.

 I do find that I will make a change to the default route on the 
 Interface Configuration file; it will reload sand; and I will have 
 to go to bash and route delete default, route add default gateway 
 newip manually.  Or, I will put a new subnet on an interface and 
 can't get OSPFd to talk on that interface until I reboot the box.

 Just stopping and starting OSPFd didn't work.  I don't know if that 
 is an indication that I have bad hardware or what.  Using suspect 
 gear for your first experience with a platform is probably not the 
 best situation for figuring out what is what.  The other 4 inherited 
 TransPorts all have one or more blown ethernet ports so I haven't 
 been able to use them.  I can't point to anything on the other three 
 that screams I'm busted.

 Having to reboot is really annoying.  Having to use the shell to 
 manually apply desired configuration changes, annoying, but at
