Re: [WISPA] Do you recognize this tower?

2016-11-14 Thread Eric Rogers
I bet it is a Motorola brand tower (made by Rohn).  We had a 100' tower, and it 
is nearly identical to the SSV, except the pads are 45* out from standard SSV.  
You can get a section of that is made with the 45 plate at the top and the 
standard at the bottom to continue building a taller tower if needed.  We chose 
to buy a newer tower than to re-engineer one.

Re: [WISPA] Small IP PBX - Grandstream UCM

2014-05-14 Thread Eric Rogers
Our consulting firm put one in at a lawyer’s office, to replace an OLD Nortel 
system.  They wanted the simple ability to have an inbound call ring all 
phones, but if it times out after 3 rings, goto an IVR.  We have been doing 
this for a long time with FreePBX, but it is limited with GS.

 

The other bad thing about GS is there are SEVERAL bad bugs that done in a

Re: [WISPA] Motel WiFi Authentication

2014-03-26 Thread Eric Rogers
We use Mikrotik to create a VPN tunnel for our management of our equipment, and 
we keep our UNIFI server on a hosted instance in our DC.  It allows us to 
update APs and we get the alerts when something drops off and prevents us from 
having to use NAT or provide a public IP for each AP for management.  Using VPN 
also allows us to put in other devices (mFI, Cameras, Etc.) onsite without any 
infrastructure changes.

 

If you have multiple sites, you can carve out an instance within Unifi, and 
give access to the local location, but your account has access to all sites.

We run the unifi server in the office.  The only requirement is the unifi units 
need to be able to connect to the unifi controller on port 8080, you will also 
need 8880 and 8843 if using the portal redirect.  So even if the controller is 
behind a NAT you can set up a port forwards.

While I haven't set up the AWS controller, those that I have talked to said it 
was dead simple using the steps on the wiki, even from people who aren't system 
administrators.

If the staff is willing to do the vouchers they are pretty simple.  You just 
create a bunch ahead of time, print out the codes and they can hand them out as 
needed.  Every place I have wanted to use it the staff didn't want to mess 
around with it so they just change the WPA2 key every month.

You can still host the Unifi server at your place if they do not keep a

Re: [WISPA] Referencing the earlier L I TelecommununicationsLicensing Discussions

First off... why are you reading the law?  Has someone pointed you to
it, saying you are breaking the law?

 

Based on my observation, and my legal disclaimer... I am not a lawyer,
and I don't even play one on TV.

 

This is low voltage line, there is no line voltage at 110AC or above.
This is 24V DC with 300mA output.  Also, you are not

Reading the Washington State WACS

Page 80 of 118

WAC 296-46B-925 Electrical/telecommunications contractor's license

 

Things that puzzle me are items (10) and (12) below. 

 

If a WISP firm installs and maintains ownership and responsibility for
the radio, cabling and POE adapter and power supply all the way  to the
customer's Internet router or personal computer, where would the demark
point be? Would it not be at the point where the CAT 5 cabling from the
POE LAN side connects into the customer-owned equipment and thereby
qualify under item (12) and eliminate the need for an 09 license? 

 

If the WISP uses an all-in-one, UL approved and licensed POE unit where
the power supply and the POE are built together as one unit, example:
Ubiquity, then wouldn't that qualify under item (10) and eliminate the
need for an 06 low-voltage administrator's license and an 06 low-voltage
journeyman electrical license, required to install and connect a POE
device to a Cat 5 cable? 

 

I wrote to the LI people in September for a clarification on this but
they simply came back citing Chapter 19.28 of the RCWs saying that to
install Cat5 one had to have an 09 Administrator for the company and to
install a POE adapter one had to have an 06 Administrator for the
company and all POE installations had to be done by a licensed
journeyman. This entire thing is frustrating to me and confusing,
because it appears that the laws are at odds with each other and are
very unclear on this subject, and that the people in Olympia can simply
rule it however they wish to their own advantage.

 

Can anyone here clarify the differences between the WACS and the RCWs
and how they relate or interact? Does one trump the other?

To be the WACS look like the standards on how to install, administer the
laws contained within the RCWs. But if the WACS state that something
does not fall under the requirements or are not legislated by the RCWs
then does that mean we can go by what the WACs say to the exclusion of
the RCWs, in this case the items (10) and (12)?

Update after more work today.
Replaced all the electronics at one end early this morning.  No real
change.
Replace the cable and antenna at that end this afternoon.  When we got 
there the link was running with RSSI of around 67/70 and CCQ in the 50's

both ways.  Aligned the antenna and I watch the stats for a while while 
the climber we getting the old antenna off of the tower.  Signal 
strength went to around 57/65 and quality was running in the high 80s to

mid 90s.  Thought it was fixed.  Climber finished attaching new cable to

tower as he came down.  When He got to the bottom I checked things 
again.  Signals are 67/70 and CCQ is all over the place.  I have seen 
the CCQ jump from 90 to 14 at least once this evening.  It didn't drop 
the link at 14, rather it climbed back up to nearly 80 and then dropped.
I am at a complete loss as to what is going on.
Oh, the last time I looked, noise floor was around -100 so SNR is 
running 30 to 40.

Re: [WISPA] I'm new, I hope this is the right list...

2011-11-29 Thread Eric Rogers
Rich,

 

As I see it, you have two options.  One is to get into the fixed
wireless business and find a tech person that KNOWS what they are doing.
If you are going to outsource everything, you MUST know what is going on
with the network and not just run it, or you cannot control the
functions of the business.  This doesn't mean you need to be an expert,
but must know how to set metrics for the outsourced companies and have
standards they must meet.  DO NOT get into the mobile business with the
unlicensed spectrum that is available... too many variables to provide a
good service.

 

Second option is to partner with a Verizon build-out like Charles Wu.
He is licensing some of the 700MHz spectrum from VZW and building it out
for them in hopes he will make money along the way and possibly sell it
back to them when it is done.  This model allows VZW to not lose their
frequencies because they have to use it or lose it.  This is also LTE,
and able to do mobile broadband.

 

IMO, I have always been told that a smart investor should only get into
something they know about.  If you don't know how ISPs work, should
probably stay away from it until you do know it.  I am not saying you
shouldn't do it, just maybe not now.  Stay on here, ask a lot of
questions and maybe you will find that tech partner you need.

 

Thanks,

 

Eric

Hello,

 

I operate in the custom software development industry and am considering
setting up a WISP as a new business investment. I know very little about
the industry and am hoping that some of you will not mind giving me some
feedback. In exchange, I'll be glad to answer any software development
questions you may have that I can answer or that I can get an answer
for.

 

I'm a business person. I'm not interested in learning the low-level
details about wireless hardware or protocals above and beyond what I
need to run the business. I have no desire to ever
install/troubleshoot/repair the equipment myself.

 

What I want to do is own the service and run the business. My first
thoughts are I want a setup that makes it easiest for the customer to
start using the service. If there is a particular hardware setup that
lets me mail a dongle (small device that would plug into a USB port) to
the customer and viola they're up and running, great! Also, I am
wondering if operating in a licensed spectrum will provide me with some
protection from frequency overload.

 

I am interested in finding people who may be able to help me analyze a
territory for potential profitability and engineer a setup. So, if it
doesn't violate mailing list rules, feel free to respond with your
contact information so that I can contact you to find out what it would
cost for your services.

 

I know I have a lot to learn and want to stick with high-level
information so that I can quickly determine if this is a good
opportunity for me.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Rich

We are adding a fairly large new tower to our network and it will be a

At the base I would like terminate them all at a large surge arrestor
bank
before entering the cabinet or building.  We will initially have a
cabinet
and perhaps later a building.  Does anyone know of an outdoor surge
arrestor
I can put at the base of the tower that accommodates a number of cat-5
runs
neatly?  Something like the standard outdoor canopy surge arrestor
except
would protect 8+ cat-5 lines in a larger outdoor enclosure.  This would
also
serve as a termination point if we move from the cabinet to a building
in
the future.

Who knows eRate on this list?  We have an opportunity to rent fiber to
provide a connection to our tower site using an asset the school owns,
but because this is a technology asset, doesn't it qualify under e-rate?

they have to reduce their e-rate funding by the same amount?

Re: [WISPA] Who Knows eRate

2011-10-29 Thread Eric Rogers
That makes sense, and that is kind of why I am asking if anyone is doing
this.  I am trying to consult with an e-rate specialist, but the one
that works with the schools is extremely hard to get ahold of.  We want
to rent fiber from a school that they paid to run to their tower for a
small TV station they operate.  If we rent the fiber, and the tower, as
long as it wasn't paid by some sort of erate funding, should be ok from
what I am reading.  We would be providing the wireless equipment, we
just want the fiber transport and facilities to put our gear up on.  I
also would like to use the rooftop of the school to put up broadcast
points or breakout points in this community.

If they were purchased with erate, then we can qualify for the community
portion of the access, but the school CANNOT charge anything for it.  It
is also optional and are not required to open their network.

I don't know the system very well -- I advise checking with a
specialist, since it has some pretty strange policies -- but it probably
matters who owns the fiber.  It used to be that only carrier-provided
services were eligible, other than on-premise stuff (a different pool
of money available some but not all years).  Now, government-owned dark
fiber is eligible, though there are bidding rules.  Wireless links are
still not eligible for purchase subsidies (not that unlicensed radios
are expensive enough to need them any more), but eligible service
providers can probably sell services they deliver over their own
wireless links.

Re: [WISPA] Splitters with Motorola Canopy 320 - Results Update

2011-10-25 Thread Eric Rogers
I have often wondered if it would be better to have two antennas in one given 
direction, with one being \ pol and the other antenna being used for / pol.  I 
wondered if special diversity would allow us to achieve better penetration

Basically order the two of the standard moto antennas, but use one polarity on

 On 10/25/2011 06:39 AM, Chuck Hogg wrote:
 I thought I would post back on here what we did and our results.
 These are preliminary.

 Equipment:
 1 x 320AP

 Configuration with only one sector:
 Power set to 19.9dB (per the manual for legal power settings)
 AP set to -65 power leveling
 Client signals at the AP were -65 (or thereabouts, this fluctuates
 from -65 to -70) for all clients.
 Client receive levels ranged from -61 to -75.

 Equipment:
 1 x 320AP
 4 x 16.5dB 90 degree sectors
 2 x 4 way splitters from L-Com

 Configuration with only one sector:
 Power set to full 25dB (per the manual for legal power settings,
 assuming a -6.5dB of loss)
 AP set to -65 power leveling
 Client signals at the AP were -65 (or thereabouts, this fluctuates
 from -65 to -70) for all clients.
 Client receive levels ranged from -64 to -78.

 So essentially by adding a 4 way splitter the clients receive levels
 increased by about 3.5-4dB.  Tower receive levels were unchanged, as
 most of the clients were power leveled down.  Only one client is
 transmitting at full power now.  That client is also the highest
 signal on both sides.  Most client transmit levels are also running at
 a higher power now as well.

 Conclusion:
 I think that running 1 x 320AP x 4 sectors through splitters is a
 little aggressive.  If the majority of your clients are going to have
 decent signal levels, then I see no problems with it.  However, I
 think that our current situation is a little on the edge.  I think
 that if you are looking for an inexpensive way to use 320AP's, I would
 recommend this solution.  I think that this solution has a higher net
 gain over using an 8dB omni.  My results show that it is pretty
 consistent on being about a total loss of about 8dB using a 4 way
 splitter.  You can overcome 6.1dB of that loss in turning up the
 transmit power of the radios.   Your net loss is about 2.5-3dB,
 however you are able to focus the sectors a little better.

 In the long run on future deployments, we will likely use 2 AP's and 4
 sectors with 4x2way splitters (MIMO).  Once they reach capacity, we'll
 add additional AP's.

 Chuck

Re: [WISPA] DMCA Takedown

2011-09-27 Thread Eric Rogers
I wanted to thank everyone for their input.  I am trying to summarize
what I have found.

I found a great informational site maintained by Stanford University.
http://www.chillingeffects.org/piracy/notice.cgi?NoticeID=973.  It has
many links and FAQ for a basis to make decisions.  It basically looks
that if the ISP has a policy regarding copyright infringement, and a way
to track each user, then the ISP is not playing COP, but responding to
claims/accusations and should be protected under section 512 safe harbor
laws in the DMCA.

There are many requirements for the letter the copyright holder must
follow, up to and including they have to swear under penalty of
perjury that what they are sending is correct.  If it isn't constructed
properly, it is nothing.

We are drafting a policy regarding receiving the letters, and how many
times we will allow it to occur before we must protect our rights under
section 512 for the safe harbor clause of the DMCA.

Unless there is a legal document requiring us to present customer
information, we will protect our customer's rights and privacy.

Finally, we are seeking some legal advice to help draft those response
letters and review our policies before implementing them.

Thanks again.

Eric

Re: [WISPA] What is everybody using for alarms?

2011-09-24 Thread Eric Rogers
We use Mikrotik's The Dude.  To accomplish what you are asking, we setup
Parents to each node.  Now, if the core router is down, we don't get an
email for each AP, switch, ups, EMU, or camera, but we get notified that
that tower's main router went down.  Basically, now we only get the
individual towers that are down, and maybe backhauls to/from each one.

Hi Ed

email that summarize what went down and what when up, i.e. the state

anybody has found something with this approach?

Re: [WISPA] Power for tower sites

We use the 1500 APCs (non SMART-ups), but when  the batteries are at the
end of their life, the entire unit shuts off and we have to visit the
site.  We still continue to use them until we find something better, but
at about 3 years, expect the sites to randomly shut off.

Subject: [WISPA] Power for tower sites

 

Currently we are having some horrible issues with power
at our tower sites.  Our current configuration is that we have tripplite
smart 500VA rackmout UPS connected to deep cycle marine battery.  This
seems to work OK for a month or so and then kills either the battery or
the UPS or both.  We then notice that the equipment at the tower will
power off (battery shuts down for about 10 min) and then powers back on.
This happens almost daily and in some cases multiple times in a day.  I
think it may have to do with the output volts of the battery not being
high enough for the UPS to operate.  We are desperately looking for
other alternatives to what we are doing to resolve this issue.  Most
equipment will operate at 12/24 volt.  1x Mikrotik, 2x Trango AP, 2x
Trango Link45, 4x UBNT Rocket.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

[WISPA] UBNT to Mikrotik Connection

We are changing out some Mikrotik Backhauls to UBNT M5 rockets and want
to replace one end at a time.  We have successfully linked an M5 to a

Isn't 24M negotiation A only?  Has anyone successfully linked MT to

The easiest solution I can think of, is to stick an old routerboard at

Has anyone run into any intellectual property companies claiming patent

User-level Hotspot Services to the Public?  One of our customers just
got a letter from an attorney representing Innovatio IP Ventures,
offering to settle up now for a license with highly favorable terms.

Leaving aside such terms as slimeballs and preying on society...  
Since this means pretty much anyone who uses Ubiquiti, and could
probably be extended to apply to Canopy even though they aren't using
802.11, I was wondering if anyone else had run into this.  My customer
is much higher profile than I am, and so is a better target, but I
figure it's only a matter of time.

It also means pretty much any company in the entire world, so I figure
they have their work cut out for them.

Ok, I have a strange one.  We are trying to block DHCP return requests
from a Mikrotik CPE.  It used to work but in recent upgrades, we are
showing that the bridge filter is not working.  We are using 4.16

Here are the rules:

/interface bridge filter

add action=log chain=forward comment=Block DHCP Servers from ETH1
disabled=no in-interface=ether1 ip-protocol=udp log-prefix=DHCP: 
mac-protocol=ip packet-type=broadcast src-port=67

add action=drop chain=forward comment= disabled=no in-interface=ether1
ip-protocol=udp mac-protocol=ip packet-type=broadcast src-port=67

 

The counters are incrementing for both the LOG and DROP rules, but it is
not dropping the packets in the last rule.  I have also tried turning on
the Use IP Firewall option, but still no results.

Re: [WISPA] Bandwidth Providers

2010-09-01 Thread Eric Rogers
We are only 8 miles from Indy, but there are no other CLECs in the
central office for Mooresville.  So, our options are ATT, or Comcast
(because they have coax).  Shoot me a call (317) 831-3000 x200 if you
have ideas.

No no no no What I am saying is that I am willing to re-up the
contract (as I have done for the last 6 years) and get current services
that they are selling to others.  I am fully capable/willing to finish
my contract with them.  What bothers me is that to Upgrade to more
speed, they are selling it to me at nearly double the price as what they
are selling it to anyone off the street.  Wouldn't you want to reward
current customers for being loyal?

It is forcing us to look elsewhere for the upgraded speed, which we
should be doing anyway.  Just the principal that they won't re-negotiate
the contract to what they are selling to others.

Why not use N radios?  If you don't like UBNT Rockets, then look at
Mikrotik 411s with Baltic Networks' Ubitik device.  You can buy the UBNT

 Hi all,

 Obviously using 2 radios in the same RB (e.g. RB433) is not a bad
idea,
 the cost is lower, but I was wondering if this can lead to some
 interference considering that the radios could be working on adjacent
 channels.
 
 that's why I would appreciate any suggestion about multiple radios on
 the same routerboard.

Re: [WISPA] I NEED HELP

2010-08-01 Thread Eric Rogers
Forbes,

Can you give me a little more info on the setup of your network?  Are
you layer 2 throughout your backhauls and tower sites?  I have seen OSPF
flapping causing some weird issues on layer 3 networks.  If you look at
the routers in the tower site, do you see anything in the log as to what
is going on?

Experience says it is the first site that is having issues that is
causing issues behind it.

Subject: [WISPA] I NEED HELP

This has been a very long day, after a lightning storm we started to
have towers randomly drop for 2-10 minutes with no consistency as to
where, how how long.  The tower that was affected by last nights
lightning restarted (locally) so that wasn't it.  The outages were so
extensive that at one time we had 17 devices down and five minutes later
65 devices down, 10 minutes later 33, so you see where this is coming
from.  I went to the head end and rebooted everything from the core
router on out., changed passwords on the core in case it had been
compromised but show run didn't reveal anything.  Oh the other thing,
every computer we have started to say IP address is in use on the
network, no matter what we changed it to, even a subnet we don't yet use
it said it was in use.  I had to repair my connection often just to do
work on the network and it would work for a while then again say
duplicate IP.  That's why I'm convinced it's traffic.

I started turning Towers back on one at a time and for about 6 towers
there were no drops, I drove to the next junction site to turn more on
but by then the original 6 were dropping, I turned the rest of them on
but by now it's 11PM so traffic was probably lower as it's Sat. Night.  
Honestly I don't know what to do, Our Backhauls are all Mikrotik to our
12 towers, WireShark isn't seeing anything unusual, I have icmp packet
drop in the filters.  My weekend is basically ruined, what's new in this
business, but if anyone has ideas I've talked to two networking gurus in
town and they both said geez I don't know you wireless guys have way
bigger networks than we do.  sigh.

Thanks,
Forbes

If it was legitimately an accident, they happen and probably look for an
insurance claim, or just eat the cost.  See if any vendors/other ISPs
would sell an end in case of a lightning strike or something.  It
doesn't make sense that they would only sell them in pairs.

If the employee was jacking around, then ABSOLUTELY fire him.

We had over 100 ft of separation, and we were horizontal and they were 
vertical.  I was very skeptical at first, and my clause stated that no tenants 
after me could cause interference.  I was expecting something, but honestly, I 
saw nothing.  Worked like a charm.

I would try it and see if it causes problems.  If it does, then re-address it.

There is a lining inside the tank as well as the outside.  If they have

Subject: [WISPA] Customers routers backwards?

We've had this happen a efw times and its very time consuming to find
and stop. I.e the customer plays with cables and ens up sending DHCP
into the network

anyone know of a way with mikrotik routers to stop this, we use
mikrotik for our core router and tower side bridges, I'd love to put a
firewall setup on them to stop this. and track down.

Thanks --

Re: [WISPA] Does anybody have any ideas?

2010-03-31 Thread Eric Rogers
Is there a reason you are using Pseudobridge?  You will not be able to
pass any MAC addresses behind the Station (CPE/Slave), it MAC NATs.
Change to WDS instead and see if your problems go away.  It is better to
have a layer 2 bridge and deal with the broadcasts at each site.

Re: [WISPA] Postfix/Dovecot Experts

2010-03-26 Thread Eric Rogers
Ok... I fixed it.  We were using PAM using LDAP for the authentication
for SMTP and just LDAP for Dovecot (imap/pop3).  I found an article on
how to set SMTP to use Dovecot as the authentication source for email so
I just change the LDAP settings in one place.

http://www.linuxmail.info/postfix-smtp-auth-dovecot-sasl/

That sped my lookups up when the auth line goes through, instead of
being 30 seconds to more than a minute to less than a second.

Thanks for all the input, but I thought I would pass it along that it
was fixed.

I did check and I am not using any RBLs, the failure was on the
authentication.  I did check DNS entries and made sure everything is
going through successfully.

Are you using a DNSBL that doesn't work anymore or that is blocking
you?
Is the delay before or after the banner, and if after, at what point?
Have you tried doing an SMTP session by hand with telnet to see where
the delay is?

Re: [WISPA] [Motorola II] OT: Barracuda Updates?

2010-03-24 Thread Eric Rogers
I will second that.  We are a reseller as well and we had someone that had 
purchased one on e-Bay that called us about renewal.  When we called Barracuda 
to re-up it, when we gave them the serial number, they knew it was on ebay and 
had disabled the unit.  They have people that actively watch those sites and 
disable them as they find them.

Jack,

 

Who do I contact to get on the list?  I am like 5 miles from one of the
TDWR radar sites.  We are using Motorola 5.4 with 9.5 so it supposedly
has more updated signatures.  I would rather get on the list voluntarily
than they find me.

The FAA and NTIA want all outdoor operators to 1) verify if within 35
km, 2) if within 35 km, register your equipment and contact information
in a (voluntary) database so they know who to contact if there is an
interference problem, and 3) use channels that are more than 30 MHz away
from the single-frequency that the nearby TDWR uses.

1) Stay off the 5.4GHz band
2) Keep your EIRP down
3) Check your installations for out of band emissions.

[WISPA] E-Rate Information

2010-03-11 Thread Eric Rogers
Ok... I have a question about eRate.  We have been providing service to
a school corporation at a discounted rate (because they are a school)
and now they are requesting that we become e-rate so the government pays
part.  They are also looking at increasing the bandwidth as well.  I am
thinking that would be a good time to apply for e-rate and increase
rates back to where they should be so the school gets a discount still,
but we are paid for our services.

 

Are there any downfalls to signing up and getting a SPIN?  I don't think
this will increase my ability to get schools/libraries.  I am a bit
concerned that becoming e-rate, I must collect USF fees or something
like that.

 

Any feedback or discussion is welcome as I am still on the fence.

 

Thanks,

 

Eric

$49 - Jetway 3 X Gigabit LAN
$29 - 1 GB Memory
$39 - 1 GB SATA DOM

I have also built basically the same as above, but an Intel D945GCLF
(Single Core Intel chipset) for about the same.
 
$69 - M350 Enclosure with PSU (unneeded) and Power Adapter
$69 - Motherboard
$9 - Riser Card

Re: [WISPA] Rocket M2 Dish

2010-03-03 Thread Eric Rogers
The only dual-pol antenna I found was
http://www.hol4g.com/ac/product.aspx?number=RWS-SPD2-2.4NSp=171423sc=3
557.  Is UBNT on these forums?  Do they have any prototypes to test
with?  We have a project as Andy stated that we need to get a link up
quickly (month or so) to a school.  5.X is already busy and they need
something capable of 20 Meg (10 each way).  It is in the country, but
the tower that will feed them is full of 5.X GHz.

Suggestions?

 ROPE FOR SALE

 I have about 300 rolls available of 3/8 propylene rope.  1200 foot on a

 all NOS - in original shipping boxes on spools.

 This can be had in black or in that special yellow.  (Everyone knows how
 special
 yellow rope is, sort of like a yellow housecat...)

 Tug with it, pull with it, lift with it, tag with it.  Works great.

 Did I mention it was NEW old stock?

 Now - the best part.  $100.00 per roll.  Can you believe the madness?  How
 can
 he sell it so low you ask?  Cause it's crazy Blakes, and we are positively
 INSANE!

 We can even offer quanity discounts at over 20 rolls.

 Shipping will be from the actual shipping quote - or you can pick up - or I
 can
 deliver if you are in my forecast travels (pretty much only in Missouri and
 Oklahoma this month).  You can also buy the rope and just abandon it
 also

 Rope is located in southern Missouri.

 Pictures are available in case you have not seen such rope before.

 Payment is via paypal upon order of rope.

Re: [WISPA] MT Mikropoynt

2010-01-09 Thread Eric Rogers
We did something similar with the pivot Dewalt flashlight.  Since we use the 
18v drills, it worked perfectly.  Took the flashlight part off, and left the 
handle with the switch.  Connected a cat5 keystone jack...whittled out the hole 
where the flashlight head used to be.  Now we have a handle with a keystone 
sticking out the top.  If we want to power a Motorola, we use a straight 
through cable.  If we power Mikrotik, we use a short 2 jumper with a keystone 
at one end (reverse the power blue/brown pairs) so it is a Male Female 
extension.  I don't have pictures, but with Moto, just power the unit with 
headphones for a site-survey...Takes like 10 minutes if that.  Not lugging

 Truthfully though for reoccuring maintenance, I'd rather use the Power

 box the majority of the time. Then I dont have to guess, check, or keep
 track whether the MT SBC that is inside the enclosure is configured for 
 20v, 24V, or 48V.  Its qwicker to just plug in, then to verify config and
 then plug-in.  Sure if someone is back in the office, its a quick call to
 find out, but taht is not always the case.

Re: [WISPA] Metered Billing

2009-11-08 Thread Eric Rogers
Are you suggesting some sort of metric to say they are over-using
service and to move to a higher usage service?  We have been All you
can eat for years but we are at a point where demand is driving
upgrades.  I have always called the customer that used double what the
norm was and explained that we are a small company and that we are doing
this because there are no other options...don't abuse it.  We are
currently switching out equipment on busy towers because of the traffic
we are seeing.  Now business wise, it was probably my mistake or
underestimation that I chose it, but it served a purpose and made money.

 

I have been looking at the explosive growth of technology and for me to
replace equipment every time something changes, or a better product
comes out, that doesn't make any financial sense because we will never
make money.  If busy towers have overage charges, that drives extra
revenue that can be used directly for the benefit of all customers.
(that's my logic)

 

Look at the cellular industry.  They were metered...$XX dollars for YY
minutes and $.ZZ for overage fees.  They then created a Unlimited plan
that is double if not triple the cost.  It is still a tiered plan and
that is totally an option.

 

My thoughts are the following:

$30/mo 768K ...Cap of 20 Gig

$40/mo 1.5M ...Cap of 40 Gig

$50/mo 3.0M ...Cap of 60 Gig

$150/mo 3.0M ...Unlimited

$1/Gig overage fee

AND any previous plan will not exceed the $150 cap.

 

If the plans won't touch 95% of the customers, there is no threat.  It
is those that are bandwidth hogs that are usually the ones that will
drop you or complain.

 

Plus, it will allow the customer to chose to move up as you suggested,
to a faster/higher cap plan.

With thousands of wireless users, I think our unlimited eat all you
want is working quite well. And I can say we have 5 or 6 competitors
(DSL, wireless, cable, licensed Wimax, etc.) so there is no monopoly.
You are brining in $1k extra per month... but it would be interesting to
see how much extra time is being spent on that system... including the
billing, phone calls, tracking, analyzing, etc.

You would be better off to just upgrade those higher usage customers
to a more expensive monthly plan, and stop worrying about billing for
overage. You would make more profit each month by doing so.

 Hi,

 You are talking about having to add additional resources (radius,

 to track it. Then you have to bill it. Then you get to deal with

 during those times. Remove the charge or I will go elsewhere.  So,
 even
 that one extra phone call costs you money (because you have to  
 think
 about scaling). Imagine if you have 100x the number of customers  
 you
 have now... does the same solution work? Probably not.

 The easier solution would be to call that customer and get them to
 upgrade to the next plan up (which would provide higher speed as  
 well).
 This works very well for us... and then I have that guaranteed  
 extra
 income each month, even if they don't use

2009-11-07 Thread Eric Rogers
We are on the verge of changing to a metered or tiered billing structure
with Caps that once they exceed the cap; it doesn't shut off, but they
get charged the overage.  Netflix is getting out of control and I don't
want to punish the customers that only use it occasionally.  I think
they are very innovative solutions and don't want to hinder new
applications.  I just want people that download 160 GB in a month, when
the average is nearly 10 GB a month, to pay their share for expanding
the network.

 

Who has dabbled in the metered/tiered services and what were your
customers responses?

What are your tiers?

Have attitudes changed toward your company as being greedy?

 

We already have everything in place to do it, just need to send out the
letter saying we are doing it and why.

Re: [WISPA] Metered Billing

2009-11-07 Thread Eric Rogers
I use multiple MS IAS radius servers logging to a SQL server with accounting 
on.  I have already built a customer portal to display billing info for 
customers, and I just added a section that shows their current usage.  Each 
time a customer views a page, it will also search the database and look for 
overages and email out reminders if they reach the 75% mark on their cap 
automatically.

All has been custom built, but if you are using RADIUS with accounting, it is a 
snap.

Re: [WISPA] Metered Billing

2009-11-07 Thread Eric Rogers
I do agree with you and that works if there are other options.  One
customer who was downloading 160G, came from DSL and moved into this
neighborhood and now wants high speed where we are the only option.  It
is only a matter of time before others are using Netflix and others.
They come in all gaming consoles now.  Why not have the customers pay
for upgrades?  If there is a high demand for services, the demand drives
growth; or fees stifle demand.

Maybe my logic is flawed, but if 5% of the customer base is straining
the network, shouldn't they pay more?

Re: [WISPA] Backhaul Questions

2009-10-31 Thread Eric Rogers
Ok, so maybe 40 miles is out, seeing is how my links are only 12.  I was
looking at 5.4 solutions because my 3 mile hops have lots of 5.8 and I
am running out of spectrum.  Without frequency reuse via GPS or HSS, I
have to move to another frequency.  5.4 seemed like it might be a viable
option for the short hops, and use 5.8 for the long hops, or even 2.4
with dishes.

So MT guys, with a 411 AH, and R5H, you can see speeds up to 30M with
low jitter?

40 miles @ 5.4?

How is that possible with a 30dB EIRP max limit? Sure you could use a
36dB dish but I can't see how you can turn the power down enough to stay
in compliance.

Well, depending on what the radio was certified with, you could 
theoretically go 40 miles in 5.4 GHz.  I'm not sure I'd put those
antennas 
on a Rohn 25, though.  :-p

MT 20 MHz can go 35 megs or so, depending on board HP and RF conditions.

Re: [WISPA] OT Question....

2009-10-30 Thread Eric Rogers
One thing, I don't know what kind of RF backhauls you are using, but the
Motorola PTP radios have a feature that disconnect the Ethernet briefly
to reset any Spanning Tree functions on the switch.  Check the radios
and see if they are dropping briefly, causing the Ethernet disconnects.

How close are these links? We find that at 0.10 in/hr of rain fall will
cause our 60GHz link to drop and because of the Ethernet follows
Wireless setting this also drops our Ethernet connection, normally we
only see this in hard rain.

 For those of you that are not aware most Gigabit radios when they
loose 
 their RF link shut down their gig ports on both sides to indicate a

rerouting.

  If copper, then the wire needs to be tested, (no loose connector,
right kind

  If it is fiber then, check the fiber, clean the fiber, check the
SFP/GBIC,
  clear them, reseat them, confirm that you are using right cable
(single mode

  Don't mix MultiMode cables with Single Mode Cables Connectors..
 
  TIP, fiber cables / SFP/GBIC, you can test each side by doing a
LoopBack on
  the Far end... To do a loopback in fiber world, you just have to
find a way
  to connect the two ends of the fiber cable together.
 
 
  Additionally, you may want to setup the devices on both side to be

namely the one titled PCQ Examples.  Simple queues are pretty easy to
use, once you have them figured out.  I hate saying go to the

I want to run RouterOS on an x86 machine between a satellite internet

give one group of users more bandwidth and another group of users less  
bandwidth. It's also important that the bandwidth usage within a group  
be distributed fairly. Can anyone recommend a Mikrotik consultant for  
a small job like this? Does anyone have anything that would do this

Re: [WISPA] Net Neutrality

2009-09-20 Thread Eric Rogers
I would like to applaud everyone and add my $.02.  This has been
extremely professional, though everyone has their own opinions.  Thanks.

I have been not blocking, but limiting P2P so that it doesn't take up
all resources as someone put.  There are still some people that find
ways around it.  I don't limit because I feel they are getting something
they shouldn't or even because I think it is illegal, I do it because I
don't want others' experiences to be slow or bad because of these
network applications.  If there is one, I can limit the CPE to not
exceed, therefore not taking air-time.  If I have several, it is much
harder and more has to be done at the AP to fairly distribute that load.

It is not so much the bandwidth I limit, it is the air time that is
valuable to me.  The more they use, the less others can.  With the hope
of newer technologies like N, WiMax, and LTE, this airtime is dealt with
better and is less of a threat.  The bandwidth hogs will go away when
the entire industry transitions to a metered system.  I don't think it
is too far behind with Netflix, Hulu, YouTube HD, etc.  Now that is the
most fairest way to deal with customers/bandwidth hogs.  I see it as
selling a connections for $X and charging by the Gig.  That way all
models work, as long as we can still prioritize the air-waves, not so
much the bandwidth.  That is how almost all utilities work.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Net Neutrality

Jack,

I do agree that you have been fairly clear, and I wasn't so much
addressing you as being the one conflating the two issues.
I think you have a good understanding of the two issues, and are
reasonable in how you are addressing them. I am somewhat concerned that
free speech was at the forefront of your endorsement of the FCC's
upcoming proposal re Net Neutrality. As I said before, I don't think
free speech is really the issue, either from the standpoint of the ISPs,
nor of those who have been arguing for Net Neutrality, although some
argue for NN primarily on the basis of free speech, which is where I
think the issues have been conflated.

The most visible cases I can recall that caught the attention of the
News Media as well as the FCC were trade issues, rather than free speech
issues. A phone company disallowing VoIP on their data networks, Cable
companies disallowing IPTV on from possibly competing TV companies, etc.
are trade issues. P2P is harder to portray as a trade issue. (Are there
any ISPs who would block P2P to protect their own music business?) But..
P2P is still not really a free speech issue, although it is sometimes
presented as such.

The FCC proposes to regulate ISPs to ensure that they do not
inhibit/impair the *free flow of information AND CERTAIN APPLICATIONS
(quoted from the AP story, emphasis mine). We do have constitutional
guarantees regarding free speech, and the Federal government is charged
with regulating Interstate commerce, but there is no constitutional
right to pass IP packets in any amount, frequency, volume, or direction
you may choose, over anybody's IP network which you may choose.
Advocating that you do under the free speech clause is inappropriate
IMNSHO. :)

As far as my network goes, and I suspect that most ISP's would be
similar, I don't care if you use FTP, HTTP, TELNET, SSH, or Real Audio
40kps stream to receive the speech populary known as I have a dream by
Martin Luther King. I might have an issue if you decide to download the
HDTV version, and then do likewise for every political speech made since
then. But... that has nothing to do with free speech. But, if the FCC
decides that I must allow you to stream the HDTV video file, and that I
cannot as an ISP interfere with that stream in a manner that makes it
uncomfortable for you to view (constant buffering) under the guise of
free speech guarantees, I have a big problem with that.

I also have a problem with a certain application that is designed to
consume every available network resource in an effort to gain an
advantage over other users of the network in file download times. Again,
not speech related, but often portrayed as a free speech issue.

Jack, I know you know the difference, and this isn't really directed at
you. But you were the one who brought the free speech issue into it
AFAICT.

 Hi John,

 Yes, there are two issues at play however I don't believe I have
 conflated them. I think I've been quite clear that there is an issue
 of bandwidth and there is an issue of content.

 On bandwidth, every ISP (in my opinion) should already be managing
 bandwidth and limiting bandwidth so that customers get what they
 contract for and not any more than what they contract for.

 On content, no ISP (again, in my opinion) should be able to be the
 decider and choose what content they will pass 

Re: [WISPA] Apartment Buildings

2009-08-21 Thread Eric Rogers
We deploy in fairly dense housing editions for our wireless service and
run across this occasionally.  We use PPPoE for logged in routers and
DHCP to put them in a Not Configured pool of IP addresses.  During an
installation, we configure the routers for them, securing their
wireless.  If someone plugs a new router in, by default, most routers
use DHCP for configuration.  They get a page that says...Your Router
Lost it's Configuration... Here is documentation on how to set it up.
In the instructions it walks them through setting up PPPoE and the
wireless on their network.

We then drive through the edition quarterly to audit and if we find one
wide open, we log into the router and set the WPA Key to
NETWORK_WIDE_OPEN or I_WAS_HERE.  Then when they call we explain that
neighbors may possibly be able to get into their computer, they are
usually... Really, I didn't know that.  If they refuse to lock it
down, or we find it multiple times, it violates our Terms of Service and
disable their account until they call in and we tell them to stop doing
it or we will disconnect their service and that sharing is not
permitted.

We haven't had very many problems with it.  We actually had someone call
in because they felt guilty for stealing one of our customer's internet.
We got there for a site-survey and found he was pulling off of Comcast,
not us.  We left it...

hotel
 that charges for internet.

 Only way to fight it in a MTU type environment or even with
residential
 is
 educate the users and strike some fear into them that if they run
open APs
 they could get in trouble if the others that piggy back on it does
illegal
 things such as copyrighted filesharing, illegal p0rn or simply are
virus
 infected and they this way risk getting infected and have their own
 computers compromised and become BOT slaves.

 Plus also let them know that they are paying for specific service
speeds
 and
 if they let others use it a lot for free then themselves no longer
have the
 speed for themselves and also possible point to the bit cap portion
of the
 user agreement letting them know that their account could possibly be
shut
 down prematurely because someone else is using up all their allow bit
 count.


 Some students will not care and there might be two apartment that
even
 share
 the cost of the service and then you cannot do much about it besides
maybe
 limit per connections etc to choke them out.

 What we do at one location (granted all pre-wired) is that the
landlord is
 paying a small fee each month but then we provide free internet to
the
 tenants just fast enough to work for a individual doing normal web
browsing
 but then we also provide upgrade service on a for pay basis. The
people
 that
 pay tend to be greedy and want it all to themselves ;)

  We just installed another one and it now is giving kernel errors

[WISPA] Cat5 Grounding

2009-06-11 Thread Eric Rogers
Ok... I have been dreaming a little.  I have had a couple direct hits on
towers because of the storms through the Midwest and it got me
thinking... (ouch it hurts)...

We put patch panels at the top and bottom of the towers and usually run
bundles of cables between.  The more I am getting into the RF world and
towers, (I am an IT guy by heart), I am thinking that using the 25 pair
lines with an armor/shield would be a better way of going.  If I ran 2 -
25 pair runs up a tower, then you can follow the grounding ritual of
grounding at the equipment, as it comes off a tower, and just before it
enters the building with standard coax grounding kits that Tessco and
others sell.

Thoughts?  Anyone do this currently?

Re: [WISPA] Cat5 Grounding

2009-06-11 Thread Eric Rogers
I already use them, but doesn't always help.  That is our standard setup
now.  They have saved us many times, but if we take a direct hit,
sometimes the equipment makes it, and sometimes it doesn't.  For
instance, we got hit last night.  Only two sectors blew, the rest are
still working 9 total radios operating and 2 dead ones.  I was just
brainstorming and thought if we could ground the cat5 bundle better, it
might keep the potential differences to a minimum by grounding at the
top, as it leaves the tower, and as it enters the building.

All units have 4.0.2 and we do not believe the problem is with an

I just moved one client today that was in router mode back to bridge

replicate 100% of the time.



We have eliminated all of the causes of the problem with the exception

of the Tranzeo CPQ.



All units have 4.0.2 and we do not believe the problem is with an

upgrade in the firmware because we can replicate the problem in

version 3.6.7 as well.



I just moved one client today that was in router mode back to bridge

mode because they couldn't do their UPS shipping until we did.

Apparently, we may need to move all of them to bridge mode but with

hundreds of units out there I really don't like that idea.

I've never had a single problem with any of them failing to pass traffic

as mentioned in the thread.  I just upgraded one small town to 4.0.2, a

from any customers . . . everything seems normal.



IMO, the Tranzeo stuff has been fine.  All AP's however are bridged in

my case.

I've got a whole building TVSS on the three phase at my datacenter 
building; it's a separate module that goes next to the breaker panel. 8 
years and no lighting problems despite being connected to a tower. I 
also use UPSs and have an extensive underground grounding network, and 
the generator waits a minute for things to stabilize before returning to

utility power after an outage.

We also keep all the wireless equipment on one rack, and link it to the 
other racks with fiber for connectivity, just to limit the scope of any 
potential ethernet based surges.

I've got a whole building TVSS on my home, where it's like a LED+circuit

breaker on each 120v leg. 9 years and no lightning problems, with about 
8 antennas on the roof. I also use UPSs, and have a diesel generator but

it's not automatic.

I'll probably continue to buy the whole building protection for any new 
building power wiring projects. It seems like a low cost layer of 
protection compared to the amount of damagable electronics in a house or

computing environment or other elaborate protection systems. We use a 
mix of APC and Tripplite UPS systems.

Re: [WISPA] After hour call handling?

2009-04-17 Thread Eric Rogers
I made that mistake... The straw that broke the camel's back was when I
got a call at 11:30 PM on Sunday that I am having problems getting my
Xbox to work.  It says I need a key.  I realized at that point, as I
was waking from my slumber, that it was not a good idea.  I don't
remember my response, but I am sure I wasn't as nice as I would have
been normally...

We use Asterisk and during business hours, we answer calls as much as we
can.  After hours, unless they are paying business rates, it says on our
menu if they are a residence calling for support, press X and you can
leave a message.  If you are a business or a residential customer in
need of immediate support, press Y.  If they press Y, the first
announcement says Note:  for all residential customers calling for after
hours support, there will be a $75 charge for each hour on their next
bill.

It gives the customers that HAVE TO HAVE IT NOW!!! the ability to get
support, especially for that executive that has to have a report done at
3:00 AM for the financial meeting he will be attending and he can't
figure out his email settings on a work laptop that has never been home
to setup.  We can now justify paying off-hour rates to my techs.

Re: [WISPA] Towers....

2009-04-13 Thread Eric Rogers
I would also agree this company is great to deal with.  I have a 190'
NSX tower and it has worked for my little ISP.  However, with the
positive that it does work just like Bob says, they are not solid-rod
towers like Valmont, so the life is yet to be determined.  They are
hot-dipped electro-galvanized (better coating) vs the old-fashioned way
of just galvanizing, but because they are hollow, they can rust from the
inside out.  I hope this investment lasts like most of the 30+ yr old
MCI and ATT microwave towers have held up, but I have my doubts.  So
far so good.  2 1/2 years on it and it still has little to no rust on
the outside.

Just wanted to post a quick plug here for Nello Towers.

If any of you guys or gals is considering buying a tower or towers you 
should consider these guys.  We have been installing tower stuff for 
years and and I can't remember the last time I didn't have to pull out a

mag drill, torch, come-a-long, sledgehammer or some other tool or device

to make a tower go together.  we just installed a 100' freestanding 
Nello NSX tower for a customer and every single hole lined up perfectly,

the instructions were straight forward, everything was labeled and color

coded, and there was even a box that said SPARE HARDWARE  Holy 
Crap!  Imagine that!!!  A freakin' tower dog's miracle moment. we put 
the tower together and hung it in one day without issue. And we were not

short ANYTHING.

We have a second one to do and I can honestly say I am looking forward 
to it.

Now I have no relationship with this company and I don't make anything 
from them.  But I know what a nightmare putting some of these together 
can be like for someone with experience.  Can't imagine a novice trying 
it. Anyone looking for some fun should buy five 100' Super Trylon towers

from Tessco and try putting them together with the instructions off the 
web site.  Took us 4 weeks especially when we realized we had all kinds 
of parts missing.  And the shipping was a killer because Tessco makes 
its own kits and crates each individual section in nice heavy wood 
crates.  10 sections, 10 crates. We had enough wood left over to build a

4 bedroom house!  :-)

Just an FYI.

Re: [WISPA] Anyone have trouble with customers batching credit cardpayments?

2009-04-13 Thread Eric Rogers
Do they happen to have a managed switch or do you have a managed switch
you can temporarily put in to prove it is not your service?  I would
check the error counters on the interface and be SURE it isn't wiring in
their facility.  The best thing you can do to trouble-shoot is to break
everything down into small systems and test each piece until you find
the culprit.

I don't know how your wireless network is set up, but even if you are
using PPPoE, I am sure you set up the MTU to the correct number.  It
could be that you need to change the MTU on the device, but it would
error every time, not intermittently.

You might put a static IP on their connection and get PingPlotter and
find out the packet loss at different times of the day to their exact
location and see if you see anything going on at the end of day.

Good luck,

Re: [WISPA] RouterOS x86 for Skype QoS?

Have you done any packet captures?  If it is a small site, you might be
able to look at the TOS bit and prioritize accordingly.  If you see a
DSCP (TOS) of 46, I assume it is VoIP and tag it for queues.  In
Mikrotik, there is a connection type option, and SIP is one of the
options.  I also tag that one and set it to VoIP for the QoS rules.

It gets most traffic, but don't know about Skype.

Re: [WISPA] bonding

2009-01-24 Thread Eric Rogers
I had 4 T1s balanced using Multi-Link Frame Relay.  Supposedly it only
had a 10% overhead vs. MLPPP of almost 20%.  I was having strange issues
and not always experiencing my full downloads.  The techs always said
they don't see any errors.  I finally pushed the issue and they did an
in-depth diagnostics on each T1, and the guy I got was very good.  He
found that in the MFR bundle, the T1s were not in order and he
re-ordered them in the MFR bundle.  He also found a WIC card that had a
port that was getting errors.  I don't think being in order made that
big of a difference, as the numbers were dynamic, but it helped diagnose
things.  It was enough not to see the full bandwidth.  I bet I went
through 2 techs before I got the 3rd that knew what he was doing.

Might schedule an in-depth diagnostics on your WIC cards at 3:00 AM or
so.  My connection wasn't a managed solution, so I provided the Cisco
router and WICs.  Beware of the cheap China knock-off cards on eBay.

 Yep, we're bonding DSL with MLPPP as well, with direct PVCs through
Verizon.
 Caveat: we generally see only about 80% performance rates (i.e. if [4]
1Mbps
 circuits are bonded together, we get 3.2Mbps throughput). Have not
found a
 way to improve this. Using Cisco gear on both ends.

 Hi Eje,

 Yes, you are correct.  We can bond DSL using MLPPP.

 I do believe you would be able to use an Imagestream. If memory serves
me
 right they do support mlppp. I'm sure Jeff can correct me if I'm
wrong.

 Hi,

 We currently provide DSL service using Qwest. We are a megahost
 provider, meaning we have a DS3 directly to Qwest, and then we can
sell
 DSL
 circuits using our bandwidth, etc.

 In the past, we have been able to bond multiple DSL lines using a
Cisco
 router on the customer side and then using Cisco's CEF protocol.
 This provides a true bonded connection, because it does a per packet
 load balance.

 Is there a better solution? I have to use a Cisco on our NOC side, but
I
 would prefer to find something cheaper. Any ideas on what protocol may
 work?
 MLPPP or ?

Re: [WISPA] Employee Tracking Program

2009-01-23 Thread Eric Rogers
I just wanted to follow up for those that are interested.  I included
the original email below, but I will summarize.  I was asked to find a
way to log where employees are going on the internet.  I took the many
suggestions of NTop, PRTG, using NetFlow data and a reporting server,
etc.  They worked, but not exactly the simple reporting the employer
wanted.  What I stumbled across is a program called Untangle.  It is a
unix load and very nicely done http://www.untangle.com.  Very secure.
It is a transparent bridge that also does firewalling and is a content
firewall.  I loaded it onto a 1U old Dell server they retired.  We
turned all of the blocking rules to log, so it was totally transparent
to the users.  It logs where each workstation went on the internet for
about 2 months.  Now that they have collected the information, they have
confronted the employees and at least made it public they were being
watched.  Then turned it onto blocking the sites they were wasting time.
It also now blocks the spyware that was running rampant on their
network.

Best of all, Untangle is free, and open source.  There are other Pay
For devices like Barracuda Web (310) is similar, but is routinely
maintained.  They are also great products.  Once this server outlives
its life, they will probably move up to the Barracuda for better
reporting and constant updates.

Anyone that does want more information, I can send screenshots and/or
answer questions should they arise later.

I have a company that would like to track real-time and summary
information of internet activity of it's employees (by IP).  They are
looking for summary information, not email content/instant messenger
chats/passwords.  What would be ideal would be a passive device that
acts like a sniffer that either hits layer 7 and reads the
www.xx.com from the data portion of the packets, or just looks at
the DNS traffic, tracks IPs and reports it.  Maybe even amount of
bandwidth spent at each IP... or something of that nature.

 

Any ideas?  I have recommended software that is a keylogger and
recorder, but they want something that is totally transparent, i.e.
sniffer.

 

Thanks,
