Yes.  You can search past 471 at the USAC website using the search tool. You
will need to determine what the BE discount rate is and then back that out
of the contracted amount to determine what the school actually pays.

Re: [WISPA] Prevailing Wage

2013-03-18 Thread chris cooper
We pay Davis-Bacon wages on our stimulus project work.  Its not hard to
deal with.  You have to pay any worker working on site the proper wage,
pay them weekly, document it properly and fill out the wage report for
each week.  Make sure you look up and apply the proper wage
determination for the county/twp that the work is completed in.  You can
look that up on DOL website.  If you cannot find a WD for your
particular workers/work to be performed, you will need to complete a DOL
form 1444 and submit that to DOL for approval. DOL will provide
definitive answers. Put up the wage notices in office and on jobsite.
Make sure each worker knows how much they are paid per hour and what, if
any, deductions come out of that rate. Keep your files in order in case
they do audit you.

Hello,

We are working on several wireless and security camera proposals
for municipalities in our area, Illinois.  The question has been raised
about Prevailing Wage and if we have to pay it.  When looking into it,
it looks like we do.  All $44/hour to any one that works on the project.

I do not want to get people all up in arms about the Prevailing
Wage act.  That is a discussion we can have at a WISPA show after hours.

Has anyone had to deal with this?  Did you get a for sure

Re: [WISPA] OT: I have to share this.. Its BIG news for Colorado ISP's..

2012-12-07 Thread chris cooper
The important thing to remember is that each application had to be
submitted with an environmental plan attached.  Winning applicants had
their environmental documents submitted for environmental review and
approval.  Awardees can't deviate from the approved environmental plan,
at least not without additional environmental approvals from EPA, USFS,
USFWS etc.  If they did indeed get hung up for environmental reasons
this could have nothing whatsoever to do with the perceived or actual
merits of the project.  If whatever they were doing caused them to
violate the terms of an EIS or caused them to need to prepare an EIS
then that alone is a show stopper.  The awarding agencies want these
projects to get built but awardees have to follow the law.

I can understand some of the environmental rules; digging up the 
ground in wetlands and other sensitive areas can be quite 
harmful.  However, the actual processes are probably a lot more 
details and complex than they need to be, especially since nothing 
spills out of a communications conduit or fiber pipe.

But it was a convenient way to call ENA out for building where they 
were not supposed to.  They were apparently trying to reach their 
percentage milestones by building fiber in low-cost prairie areas of 
eastern Colorado instead of high-cost mountains of western 
Colorado.  Only others had already built in the east, with REA 
funding, so it wasn't needed there, and it left the west 
unserved.  ENA (and NTIA) were given several offers to settle, but 
turned them down, or pretended to accept them but went ahead anyway.

 BREAKING: Grant suspended for govt funded broadband provider
EAGLE-Net
 due to ongoing concerns relating to compliance with grant rules

The suspension letter was posted on the ntia web site.  However, that
site is not very reliable, and doesn't seem to be up now.  A copy was
downloaded by the lawyer who has been leading the opposition to ENA
(I've been helping him out a bit myself) and he sent it to me.

ENA's grant was suspended on (theoretically) environmental
grounds.  By not building where they had originally proposed, and by
not doing full environmental review of the actual revised routes that
they were building, they were in violation of the grant.  So they are
frozen.  They can get permission to start building again if they can
complete the various requirements (quite a few, actually) that they
are not in compliance with.  Of course the easiest way to do that
would be to go back to the originally-approved plan.  You know, the
one whose maps were redacted in the original public form of the
application by having a black box layer placed atop them in the
multi-layered PDF... gee that isn't hard to remove in OpenOffice, is

There are roughly 60 days left before the election.  I doubt I could get
the local dog catcher candidate to take a policy position 60 days out
from the election, much less a complicated position.  The election has
the nation polarized.  In Ohio the race is neck and neck +/- a few
points.  I figure that represents my customers pretty well.  If I
believe that the lobbying efforts would be fruitless, why would I expose
my business to retribution by alienating members of one party or the
other?  Just doesn't make sense to me.

Chris,

Let me reason this out with you and Jack.  I've always felt WISPA is too
conservative in simply making filings and a rare visit.  I've felt that
education of our Congressional members has helped them remember us when
staff reviews new laws.  What we haven't done is bear any pressure or
seek to make our issues into the public consciousness.  

This is an election year, a rare moment when small issues become
campaign promises (whether kept or not).  I will only touch on politics
for a moment, keep in mind a Democrat FCC Chairman is proud that he
converted USF to CAF and seeks to expand it's revenue by adding
broadband.  The Republicans are screaming for 'no new tax' issues, just
last night Ryan called out Corporate Welfare.  Here we are with this
huge outdated tax and the FCC wants to make it bigger by taxing a whole
new industry.  The main points we can make are:

1) Congress said no tax on the Internet and now the FCC wants to go
around them and tax the Internet anyway
2) 100% of the new tax would go to corporate welfare not directly
helping a single tax payer, it's socialized Internet
3) The Telco industry isn't even a Broadband company, they are a
telephone company no more than cable is an Internet company.  At least
cable got investors to build their networks, telco wants the government
to pay for all of their expansion.
4) The cost of Wireless to expand to areas is a fraction of the cost of
wireline but is being completely left out.

I think a properly briefed politician could get excited about helping to
push our agenda, make it public and dramatically raise the profile of
our discussion.  Imagine a politician who took a pledge of no new taxes
having to take on the burden of having approved a new tax in CAF.  There
is nothing radical about taking advantage of opportunities and the
election cycle seems primed for our issues.  Politics is always a
radical and risky proposition but no one here has yet to say how this
will hurt us other to say it's risky.  I'm all ears.

I know the FCC wouldn't be thrilled with us but we've felt all along the

Re: [WISPA] Datamatic Mosaic 900Mhz smart water meter

2012-08-10 Thread chris cooper
We worked with Datamatic in 2006 when they began deploying smart meters
locally.  One high density neighborhood where they deployed the meters
was directly under one of our 900Mhz sites.  The site is very high so we
know we look down on every meter they have.  We tested with the vendor
and we did not interfere with them and they didn't cause us any problems
either.  If I recall, the unit itself broadcasts at .5 db.

Sean,

Good luck. I think any of the smart meters running on 900mhz will
interfere with your network if you are running 900mhz. We had only a
couple of handfuls of customers on 900mhz when our electric company
installed their smart meters. They run all the time and blast their
signal. We just couldn't compete. Eventhough we contacted them , we have
to move our 900mhz customers back to 2.4 or uninstall them if the 2.4
signal wasn't good enough.

Don't take their word for it. Ask to test with them, so you don't
interfere with each other.

How does it scale across a large network?

I think it's interesting that a private equity company made a bet on

Anyone have any suggestions for a small enclosure to use on a tower?
We plan to put it at about 500 feet
with a fiber convertor, switch and power for the APs.

Ive said good things about CO staff in the past.  Check the archives.
One of the CO staff work for Intelliwave previously.  I know for a fact
that he understands WISPS, wants us to succeed and really cares about
getting broadband to rural subscribers.

 Wow - it's amazing how different everyone's experiences with CN has

 We've had just the opposite of most of the folks posting here. We've

 great support for our wireless efforts . . . everything from design

 engineering to going out and finding us money to do special projects
with.
 If we can understand that at the root, they HAVE TO BE technology
 independent, they do have some very good wireless folks, Chip Spann
and Bart
 Winegar among them. As for the meeting that Robert was refering to,
here in
 Ohio they (Connect Ohio) have a grant that, to my way of thinking,
helps me
 or any other provider. They are offering training for folks who are
not
 versed in the Internet to drive adoption. Then, then in exchange for
 providers offering some discount to the folks who participate in the
class,
 they will advertise your services, and encourage folks to subscribe.
That's
 what was presented to Robert. I don't see why he was so offended by
that
 proposition.
 
 Again, it's all in your perception. All I can say is that we have
found
 that they can be very helpful and are very willing to help. Do we take
 every suggestion or service they offer? No way. But just because we
can't
 use something they offer does not make them bad. I can say without
 hesitation, that I've not found them to be in the hip pocket of the
telcos
 or big boys at all. They've been very supportive of our efforts here.

Oh yeah and it needs to be cheap too.  I want to start using something
like this for our site surveys because it would be much easier than
getting out the telescoping pole we use and having someone hold it
steady with a radio on it. I was thinking of just making one myself but
even the telescoping pole itself is hard to find.

Re: [WISPA] Netflix goes to Canada partly because of great Broadband

2010-09-23 Thread chris cooper
Interesting language from the CEO of a consumer services company
regarding his customer base:
 
THR: Are you concerned that American Netflix subscribers will look north
and ask for the same discount Canadians get at $7.99? 

Hastings: How much has it been your experience that Americans follow
what happens in the world? It's something we'll monitor, but Americans
are somewhat self-absorbed.
 
 
Doesn't hurt that Blockbuster filed Chapter 11.  Maybe the Canadians
will be able to stream more than the latest Gunsmoke reruns. But they
still cant stream Red Green.  Go figure.

At my house, I live in a hole with about ¾ mile of solid oak trees
between me and the tower.  2.4Ghz in the late spring (meaning good,
saturated leaves) I can run 4meg.  When it rains, service will be spotty
and sometimes drop.  I would never install a customer in those
conditions.  We do have a few customers through trees, but with our
noise floor here, we don’t do much more than just a few trees at a
pretty close proximity to our AP’s.   I wouldn’t even think about 5Ghz
through trees at all.  3650 – haven’t done anything through trees yet so
I don’t know.  
 
900Mhz worked great for us for awhile but noise floor went too high and
couldn’t work around it so we pulled all our 900 equipment.

So what kinds of distances are people currently going through trees, and
what kinds of signals, CCQ, throughput, etc. are you seeing? I guess I'm
looking for success stories. I need to sell this to the partners. I know
it can be done, and I'm fairly confident it will work in this situation,
but they aren't.

I've found a few instances online of people going 1 mile with 5.8
through some trees and still pulling off a -65 and 20Mbps of throughput
- this was PTP.

I know 3.65Ghz is supposed to be somewhere between 2.4 and 5.8 in terms
of tree penetration, but I'm thinking this might be a good place to use
3.65, simply because of the lack of noise.

I have never worked with 900Mhz as of yet. This was our initial
alternative, but there is the added cost of deployment - $160 for a
LocoM900 vs $80 for a NanobridgeM2. Literally doubles our ROI.

3.65 is limited in that you can only go as high as 99 feet I believe -

If you are using airmax - 2.4 should help 
 
5ghz you may have some issues w/ trees however 
 
My suggestion is a mix - I noticed that you have not mentioned 900mhz 
900 and trees especially at that distance - sub 1 mile is awesome - but
doubt you will see the 10mbps speeds you wish. 
 
5ghz is your best choice - if you can use it. 
 
setting up both 2.4 and 5ghz sectors may help - double the cost - but in
the end - would allow you the most flexibility

Update on TV Whitespaces Comments:
There are currently 44 WISP comments publicized on the FCC Website
supporting the WISPA proposal.  Keep up the good work but we still need
more!
We need everyone to take 15 minutes out of your busy day to voice your
opinion on the WISPA TV Whitespaces filing.  We have attached a template
letter that you can use.
1. Download attachment and customize it.  Can be submitted as DOC or
PDF.  It is as simple as adding your name and bits of information about
your specific need.
2. Submit to  http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=rhroc
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=rhroc with the proceeding
numbers 04-186 and 02-380.
Give me a call if you have any questions.
UPDATE:  WISP Filing updates are beginning to show up in the FCC
database.  Good job and thank you to those who have filed.  Go to
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment_search/input?z=vd7pb
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment_search/input?z=vd7pb and search
for 04-186 to read other WISP comments.  More importantly, get your
comments filed pronto.  The deadline is September 16, 2010.  We need a
good showing from the WISP industry to substantiate the importance of
our industry in the decision making process.  This is not about WISPA,
it is about your future and the WISP industry.
All WISPs,
This week, WISPA filed comments on the TV Whitespaces once again.  The
FCC is set to make decisions on this crucial topic very soon.  It is
imperative for all operators to take a few minutes and file individual
comments to the FCC about Unlicensed use of the TV Whitespaces spectrum
this week.  Please don't procrastinate as the timeline is fairly short.
I have attached a template support letter that Jack Unger has written to
make your support and comment filing easier.  Jack, Steve Coran and the
FCC committee has worked hard for several years and especially in our
recent filing.  We need to support their hard work efforts and produce a
mass support campaign to give the WISPA filing even more credibility.
WISPs need more spectrum and we need spectrum that will penetrate
foliage and other obstacles.  This is our opportunity and essentially
our obligation to stand up for our needs before this crucial decision is
made.  The WISPA filing can be read at
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view?id=7020911589
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view?id=7020911589.  
Please customize the attached template letter with your company
information and if you want to add additional local flavor, it is
accepted.  The FCC staff will read each letter and register the support
for the WISPA filing to assist them in making this tough decision.  We
have received excellent comments back from the FCC, other trade
associations and manufacturers about this filing and now our membership
and industry participants need to stand up and be counted as well.
Once you have customized the letter, please make a .pdf copy or a .doc
file and upload it at the following website.
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=rhroc
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=rhroc.  If you choose not
to use the WISPA template letter but want to write your own comments,
you can either follow the previous procedure or use the Express filing
method at  http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=nc5cd
http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=nc5cd.  The proceeding
number is 04-186.
I cannot stress how important this is for each WISP company to do.  I
hope to search the filings Monday morning and find 1000 or more new
comments supporting the WISPA filing.  Take the time and git r dun
before your busy work schedule begins again Monday morning.

Re: [WISPA] More BTOP/BIP

2010-08-21 Thread Chris Cooper
Round two awards are up to 70% grant without  a waiver. RUS expects to  
be paid back on the loan portion and structures the deals so that they  
are made whole before anyone else.

I think it's all grants.

The funny thing is that the RUS BIP grants were basically only given  
to existing RUS lendees.  So they won't be asking Windstream et al  
to repay these. Of course the repayment doesn't come from them -- it  
comes from USF, another tax.

The BIP money mostly went to ILECs, it seems.  Windstream cleaned up

satellite stuff.  The BTOP side was a little more varied.

bypassing the traditional content distribution mechanisms  There is a

Birds suck.  Bird crap all over the new sectors, grids, everything.
Tired of coming home smelling of bird crap.  I prefer my usual stink.

Is anyone using the plastic owls or any other weird thing to keep those
flying crap machines off the AP's?  i think of it everytime I climb a
grain leg but never do anything about it.  This is the year!

Oh, and racoons.  One AP is a 100 foot grain bin with steps up the side.
Racoon poop (i only imagine that it what it is) on every other step.
That I can deal with, I have kids afterall.  But the birds just need to
stop.

 Matt Larsen - Lists wrote:
 I was on a conference call with the State of Nebraska broadband
mapping 
 contractors and the Public Service Commission this morning and came
away 
 with a bad feeling.

 Based on the Form477 data, and the PSC's broadband provider
registration 
 information, there are 283 broadband providers in the state of 
 Nebraska.  But they only have complete information for about 25, and 
 signed NDAs from only 160.   I offered to them that they would have 
 better luck getting data if they weren't asking for so much 
 information.The data template that they ask for includes:

 1)  All subscriber addresses, and the type of broadband deployed at
that 
 location
 2)  GPS coordinates for all of our tower locations, the types of 
 antennas provided and the frequencies in use at that location
 3)  Key anchor institutions that are receiving service from our
system

 I have had a couple of phone calls and several emails back and forth 
 with the mapping subcontractors, and they (and the PSC) are still 
 adamant about the data collection requirements.   I thought that we
had 
 negotiated to the point that they would accept a shape file and a 
 summary of the number of subscribers per census block, but the phone 
 call this morning confirmed that incomplete data submissions (ones
that 
 do not include the tower verification information and subscriber 
 information in the format that they requested) will not be included
in 
 the summary data, or the state broadband availability map that will
be 
 released to the public.

 The contractors and the attorney for the PSC gave the indication that

 the NTIA is mandating this level of data collection, and that their
NDA 
 should be enough protection to ensure the safety of our proprietary 
 information.   My position, and the position of the majority of WISP 
 operators that I have visited with, is that I am not going to turn
over 
 the information that they are asking for.   Full disclosure of all my

 tower sites and the addresses of my customers is an onerous request
and 
 fundamentally unnecessary to determine where broadband coverage
exists 
 within the state.   I would prefer to run the risk of being overbuilt
by 
 a government funded program in the future than to turn over
information 
 to entities (NTIA in particular) that could be legally obligated to
turn 
 over that information through a FOIA request.

 I don't know whether it is too late to push back at the NTIA to
reduce 
 the data that they are requesting.   I can sympathise to a certain 
 degree with the PSC and the contractors, as they are just trying to 
 collect the data that NTIA has mandated them to collect.  But they
are 
 simply asking for too much information.   In the end, it will be
another 
 inaccurate representation of broadband coverage and that information 
 will be used to develop policy and programs that will make the 
 competitive environment for WISPs and other independent ISPs even
more 
 difficult to succeed in.   That sucks.

 But the Feds potentially could.  Remember it is FCC policy/law to

 It may come down to a legal issue on whether the FCC has authority

may
 depend on the impact of the data that would be missing, and their
real legal

 In MD, we were just contacted, and the mapping initiative is really
a racket
 for free money. MD had already started a very substanial mapping

 The article says they will increase coverage to 29,922 new

 Many of the areas they list (Idaho Falls, Rexburg, Ammon, Blackfoot,

[WISPA] Send MONEY Now!

2010-01-14 Thread chris cooper


This is completely off topic, but stick with me a few minutes.  There is
a WISP tie in here. 

As you all know, Haiti has been hit by a devastating earthquake.  Haiti
is the most impoverished country in the western hemisphere - these
people were already struggling to live on a daily basis.  The situation
there now is horribly nightmarish.  Tom Fritz, the director of Connect
Ohio, is treasurer of Lifeline Christian Ministries.  Tom has been very
supportive of the WISP industry here in Ohio.  You can learn more about
Lifeline's work here:  http://www.lifeline.org.  Lifeline has been
working in Haiti for decades.  They feed the hungry, provide medical
care, operate schools and provide shelter for orphaned children.  I
spoke with Tom this morning. He said that they have been able to
communicate with their staff on the ground in Haiti and things there are
getting worse by the hour. He said that many of their structures are
leveled.  One of their orphanages is gone and they believe scores of
children housed there are dead.  He said that they are out of medical
supplies and have been reduced to treating amputated limbs with duct
tape.  Bodies are piling up. They expect thousands more to die simply
because they don't have medical care, food or even water.

I think it's sometimes difficult for those of us here in the US to know
how to help during a crisis like this.  I also know that the WISP
community mobilized to help those in need after Katrina.  It's time for
our community to do something now.  I'm asking you to give $100 today to
help the people of Haiti.  $100.  That's less than the cost of a CPE.
You can afford it.  Tom assured me that 100% of your donation will pass
directly to their efforts in Haiti.  If you have more questions you can
contact Tom directly at tfr...@connectohio.org.  

To give your $100 now you can go here:
http://www.lifeline.org/2003/html/currentList.htm


If you for some reason would rather not give to Lifeline you can go here
to give your $100:

www.doctorswithoutborders.org
www.redcross.org

Don't look away from this horrible crisis.  It's only $100.  Give now.

 because they don't have medical care, food or even water.

 I think it's sometimes difficult for those of us here in the US to
know

 community mobilized to help those in need after Katrina.  It's time
for
 our community to do something now.  I'm asking you to give $100 today
to
 help the people of Haiti.  $100.  That's less than the cost of a CPE.
 You can afford it.  Tom assured me that 100% of your donation will
pass
 directly to their efforts in Haiti.  If you have more questions you
can
 contact Tom directly at tfr...@connectohio.org.  

 To give your $100 now you can go here:
 http://www.lifeline.org/2003/html/currentList.htm


 If you for some reason would rather not give to Lifeline you can go
here
 to give your $100:

 www.doctorswithoutborders.org
 www.redcross.org
 http://www.oxfam.org/en/emergencies

 Don't look away from this horrible crisis.  It's only $100.  Give now.

Re: [WISPA] OT: health insurance

2009-12-07 Thread chris cooper
Another thing to consider in this scenario is negotiated fees.  If you
have insurance, the insurance company will negotiate a discount on the
fees charged by the provider on your behalf.  You pay your deductible,
your insurance carrier pays the difference between your deductible
contribution and the discounted amount. Most carriers will have
pre-negotiated discounts in place with the providers.  The providers try
to get the costs up to factor in the discounts. In the case below, the
discount could get the ultimate cost pretty close to the cash price.  If
this was a Medicaid case, the actual payment to the provider would be
$1000 less than the cash price of $15,000.  Medicaid has @ a 65%
discount.

You pay the insurance company a premium.  Out of that premium the
insurance company does three things - takes profit, pays claims and pays
its administrative costs. Here are the rough numbers for the three
silos:

Profit  3%
Overhead11%
Claims  86%

There isn't a whole lot of room to shift allocation on the first two
items.  The biggest column to move is the $.86 of every dollar that gets
paid out in claims.  The only way to do that is to use less services or
be smarter about the ones you do use.  The best way to do that is to be
well.  Live a healthier lifestyle = less sickness.  You might be able to
reduce your premiums if you promote wellness within your employees just
because they will go to the doctor less.  Incent them to stop smoking,
loose weight, exercise etc.  Share some of the savings you realize in
premium dollars with them through deductible rebate, wellness program
expenses etc.  A healthier group will have lower premiums.  It pays to
have your group healthy.

Our medical system is set up to treat and not prevent disease.  As a
nation we eat quarter pounders and drink quarts of soda.  This causes
heart disease.  When you get heart disease, you go to the doctor, he
puts you on meds and sends you to the cardiac care unit to get a cardiac
procedure done.  This generates big dollars for the drug company and big
dollars for the hospital performing the procedure.  We all could save
the system, and therefore ourselves, billions just by avoiding this
scenario.

Chris




 I believe it is the doctors/hospitals causing the issues with high 
 insurance. Here as a good example... True Story: I have two friends
that 
 have children that needed/had the same operation. Friend 1 had
insurance, 
 Friend 2 did not. They went to the same doctors and same hospitals.
Friend 
 1 with insurance was charged around $40,000 total for the child's
surgery. 
 Friend 2, that did not have insurance, told them up front, and the
cost 
 was around $15,000 total. There were no complications in either case.

 I also made a trip to the emergency room a few years ago. I was
charged 
 $10 for 1 Tylenol.

 So something smells awful fishy here.

The answer to your first question is our government currently limits
where
insurance companies can offer their coverage.  Open up the entire
country 
to
all health insurance companies and you'll see competition increase and
prices decrease.  This is economics 101, but our elected officials
can't
seem to get their arms around it...or simply choose not to.

Your second question/point is correct.  Creating a government option
will
discourage competition resulting in a single payer system.  With a
single
payer system it is my opinion the cost will go up and the services 
provided
will go down.

Without competition I see this as the only outcome.

Best,


Brad

Honestly, I don't pay too much attention to the news anymore because

this:

1. If the high cost of health care insurance is being caused by the
insurance company executives raking in loads of money, why hasn't free
enterprises created competition. If all the insurance company A is 
averaging
a profit of $100 billion/year, wouldn't free enterprise generate a
competitor that decided to charge 25% lower premiums and still make a

$75 billion/year?

2. I keep hearing that the idea of a federal government sponsored

industry.
How can tax dollar funded anything be considered true competition to
free

 Secondary requirement is a company I won't have to spend 1 year

 I am installing a 1 Gig (800M/800M) licensed PTP link from my NOC to

 The choice of carriers here will be more limited.  With Abovenet

 It's really kind of funny I was just a few years ago (12) when

Using a 900 AP (like Trango) theoretically allows up to 3000 (3.0 
meg) bandwidth. But there has to be a limit on how many simultaneous

point -- how many using/downloading etc at the same time -- would the

has to, logically, be some kind of limit to what the pipe will hande.

We are looking at co-lo on a structure that is also home to a cellular

submittal
of the 477 form he mentioned how all of that data is not very good

And when the government was mentioning how we need to work within the

I was going to suggest that clear wire would be the biggest winner in

 TODAY'S SPOTLIGHT... Former Sprint exec tapped as NTIA deputy director
 
 The Obama administration has named a former Sprint Nextel executive,
 Anna Gomez, to serve as deputy director of the National
 Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), which will
 handle as much as $6.65 billion in new stimulus wireless and broadband
 grants that will be available to Sprint and its competitors.
 
 Gomez, former vice president of government affairs with Sprint, is
 currently acting director of NTIA, which influences the president's
 telecom policy within the Commerce Department.
 
 NTIA spokesman Bart Forbes said in an interview with the Wall Street
 Journal that Gomez understands that the public has every right to be
 concerned about her role in a potential broadband grant program,
 because of her history with Sprint. She is discussing this with the
 ethics office and will look to remove herself from the decision-making
 process for grant applications where appropriate, he said.

[WISPA] MDU access point selection

Hi-

 

Im looking for robust, outdoor APs for a high density MDU application.
Im intrigued by the Ruckus Zoneflex product for it's adaptive antenna
arrays and possible noise management values.  We've deployed MT APs
under similar situations in the past.  They work, but noise can be a
challenge as the pop. Density of the MDU climbs.  If you've used ruckus,
do you like em?  Hate em?  Or, if you have another product
recommendation Id like to hear that as well.

 

Happy New Year

Subject: [WISPA] Interference at the neighbors

Just curious, how are you dealing with interference that comes from the
neighbor of an existing or potential customer, i.e. you survey a
potential's house and see noise level -58 on 900su (rssi being -76)
anyway the noise seems to be coming from a neighbor (non-customer) how
do you approach the situation?  This seems to be an increasing problem
for us in the 900mhz

Re: [WISPA] Running Fiber

2008-08-20 Thread chris cooper
You might be able to rent one of the pneumatic boring rigs at your local
tool rental outlet.  For shorter runs, you can also use a backhoe - Dig
a trench on either side of the road/sidewalk and then use the hoe to
push sections of rigid underneath the pavement.  You just thread on
another section to the tail end of the previous section if you go over
10'.  We've done that to push conduit up to 30'.

Hello,

If one was wanting to run fiber in an already developed neighborhood,
the
obvious obstacles are existing concrete roads, drives and sidewalks.
What
are your options for getting around this other than destroying and
fixing
which is not an option? Is there a technology that would allow you to
drive
conduit underneath concrete drives and such?

  So, if I have a suspect antenna that might have got water in it, is
 it
  ruined, or can it dry out, be resealed and work just fine?
 
 
  Specifically, I have a couple omni's from sites that seemed to be
 under
  powered.  The culprit could have been the radio card, pigtail, cable
 or
  omni, I don't know.  I replaced it all.  The reason I ask about the
 omni
  is because way back a few years ago I got paranoid after I have some
  water issues.  A couple of these omni's I put too much tape and
 mastic
  on the bottom by the connector.  I wrapped it up too high and thick
 and
  covered the weep holes in the bottom of the omni.  So maybe I got
  condensation, or water in there if it could not leak out
 
  So if an omni like that got wet, will it dry and be ok?  What about
a
  dipole on a grid?

[WISPA] buzzard attenuation?

2008-07-17 Thread chris cooper
We noticed some fairly significant packet loss on CPE associated with
one particular 900 Mhz cell this morning.  We went to several client
locations to trouble shoot. Everything, except the packet loss, looked
good.  When we went out to the cell site we found a few very large
buzzards parked on our antenna.  Im not sure how to calculate the
attenuation of a buzzard, but when we were able to persuade them to
leave all the packet loss cleared up.  This is definitely a first for
us.  Do anti-roost strips deter them?

Re: [WISPA] Update from the FCC on 3.65Ghz and CBP

2008-07-03 Thread chris cooper


I think it's very important to remember the cost of the CPE in this
equation.  The CPE will be the primary driver in your ROI. If you can
spread the fixed cost of the AP over a large number of subs, obviously
the cost to add a user declines each time you add another sub.  However,
if the CPE cost is overly burdensome, costs to add subs can greatly
inhibit your growth from a cash management perspective.

resi marketing efforts are designed to drive calls to our CSR staff.  We
want our staff to have a real incentive to convert those calls into
sales.  This also gives them an incentive to follow up with people who
call in but don't commit to buy on the first contact.  When call volume
is low, they pick up the sales tickets that are still open and give
those people a call back just to follow up and give them another

work with them to detach and reattach gear as they work around the tank?
The contractor we worked with wasn't concerned with RF, but just wanted
to make sure that they had cleaned and repainted every square inch of
tower.  If you can work it out to stay on there, this is a great time to
do any welding you need.

I would listen very closely to the fear inside your head.  Don't let it
paralyze you, but listen to it.  Fear is a great motivator and often
prevents us from doing some very foolish things.  I once saw Pat
Parelli, the great horse trainer, lead an absolutely wild horse into a
closed corral with him. Horses are big, dangerous animals that can
easily kill you if you make a mistake.  As the horse stormed around him
he said Do I have butterflies in my stomach? You better believe I have
butterflies in my stomach.  The difference between me and the average
guy is that I've taught my butterflies to fly in formation. Most
entrepreneurs Ive met are driven by the fear of lack of success, not
necessarily the fear of failure (the two are different)or the fear of
loss of capital. You just have to focus that fear and push ahead.

I would agree.

In a dense urban enviorment the usual cell size for a 3.65ghz  wimax  
deployment is a 1km/ cell. Suburban, 2km cell, and rural, 3km cell.   
Obviously once you get below 3ghz the propogation gets better. It  
really doesnt get any better until you are talking 2ghz or lower. Of  
course, then once you get below 1ghz you have issues with surface  
refactivity and self induced interference limiting the CINR.

It sounds like you might have noise impacting the local AP on channels

the customer PC?  That might be the reason you are seeing the difference
in performance between the two.  Did you run netstumbler or otherwise

Subject: [WISPA] Some days I don't seem to know anything.

Is it possible for interference to prevent a signal from showing up in a

site
survey in Windows Zero Configuration utility? I set up a relay AP at a
home yesterday, the AP being on the roof of the garage (couldn't get
a link to my tower from the house). The wireless card I put in the
customers
computer would not connect to (usually would not even see) the AP,
although
it would find APs in other homes 1/2 mile away at times. My laptop,
sitting
on the desk next to the computer, connected immediately, with great
signal
strength. BUT, if I changed the channel to either 9, 10, or 11, then the
desktop unit would connect, also with great signal strength. I changed
out
the radio on the garage, changed the PCI wireless card in the desktop, 
antennas,
everything, but as long as the AP was on channel 8 or lower, the desktop
would usually not find it, and when it did, the RSSI was very low. My
laptop
however, did not have any problems connecting no matter what channel
the AP was on, with excellent RSSI reported on all channels.

Is there an explanation for what I was seeing?

We usually use Belden 7919a for tower applications.  It's good cable and
has served us well.  It is however a little pricey.  Can anyone else
recommend a good, shielded exterior grade cable for vertical work that
is less than $325/spool?

 

Thanks

Chris
