[WISPA] VOIP solution ?

2006-04-03 Thread G.Villarini








List,



I got a Customer with 70 locations(retail chain) that what
to implement a private VOIP system to their main office PBX, basically they want
to create virtual extensions of their Main Office PBX. We have tested Asterisk
in house and other low end solutions like the Sipura adapters for other
projects, but we really need a tested solution for this project. Already got
Cisco and 3com quoted, any other I should look at ?

RE: [WISPA] RE: Solectek Skyway 7000 -- Follow Up

2006-03-29 Thread G.Villarini








I need to chime in. it seems Airaya
is using common AP PCBs with their own firmware, but I doubt that Firmware truly
breaks 11a protocol. I have yet to see a regular 11a or 11b PCB that has
custom firmware that breaks the 11a PHY MAC. I do have seem custom PCB
like the Trango, WaveIP and Alvarion, that they use 11a chips but they
implement their own PHY MAC but thats on custom PCB with 11a RF
chips only.



I doubt that Airaya can modify 11a PHY MAC
on a off the shelf PCB.



Anyone with more info? Input ?

Thanks for the list. I've passed it on to Mike at
Airaya for comment.











One of MY big selling points on the Airaya gear is that it's
NOT 802.11a like the others (Tranzeo,
 MT, StarOS, etc.) that you're
likely thinking of. 











It uses the 802.11a CHIP to keep costs down but they've put
their own firmware on the radio. I'm running these units in a rotten
environment and they work better than my Trango distribution system at the same
tower sites. Fewer ping losses, higher speeds etc.

Im not stuck in the 1950s.
Im not looking for vacuum tubes and 100lb power supplies to justify my
purchases. I could go to a number of other vendors and get the same
802.11a setup for $700 or less. The pictures speak volumes and it seems a
fair number of the subscribers on this list got a lot of information on the
product from the pictures alone. Others asked for my list and I sent
it. I dont need Airaya suing me, so Ill let their hardware
do the talking. I know for a fact I have cost them a number of future
sales based the responses Im receiving from other members who were
considering their product for future deployments.



I sent you the same list of 15 or so items
so you can make your own call. Here is one that I really love:



https://secure.airaya.com/proddetail.asp?prod=AI108-4958-O-050

http://www.connectronics.com/airaya/index.html

http://shop.wirelessguys.com/s.nl/sc.2/category.346/it.A/id.2395/.f



Notice where it says AES encryption?
Its listed on every PDF and vendor page I have seen for the unit.
It was a deciding factor in my selection of this unit. It will be a
really great feature when it is actually implemented. You get WEP for
now. Would have been nice if there was an asterisk there telling you
AES Support Coming in Quarter 3 2006.

Times are changing. If you want devices with lots of
chips and blinky lights you'll have to pay extra. Everything it done at
the board level these days. And everyone is using the same basic chip set
these days. Airaya writes their own mac level firmware for them.











I have 4 links. 2 of the original version (prior to
what you've got there) give me a little bit of trouble on a tough link (fresnel
zone). The new radios haven't skipped a beat though.











I love my Airaya radios. They've been a great value.











I'm curious, you've not said why you don't like them.
Is there something about the performance? Software? Setup?
Gotta be something other than what's in those pics.

Last month I posted to the list asking

discounts from one of our vendors. In short, I hate them J If youre

We bought two complete links and before

 I have never used the Solectek equipment and am looking at either trying
 their Skyway 7101 or the Trango Atlas for some short building to
 building links.  I have seen enough favorable posts about the Atlas to
 know plenty of you are using it successfully - although I sure wish I
 could get one of their sales folks to return a phone call.  Leave a
 message about buying 250 CPEs and no one calls back  Anyway :-)



 I would like to get opinions on the Skyway 7000.  This would be for very
 short .5 mile links between buildings.  We would normally use
 Terabeam/Proxim systems but are looking for alternatives with similar
 capabilities and 20-40% lower cost.  Any info/opinions on reliability
 and real world throughput would be great.

The Spectra would be around $20k with external
antennas. A licensed product is going to be at least that, and probably $5k
more.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] VPN and router choices

Bo,

make sure that you're that you're not mis-interpreting VPN support with 
VPN services.  Most of the $20-$100 routers will allow IPSEC (the good 
stuff) and PPTP to pass through the device.  But, the only way I know of 
to get any of these to act as a VPN client or server is to upgrade to 
opensource firmware.  For example, the WRT54GL will act as PPTP client 
or server and can act as an openvpn client when you use DD-WRT.  See 
wrt54g.net for info on how to do this.

But, keep in mind that this configuration voids the warranty and any 
support.   Also, the device has 200mhz processor with 8MB RAM and 4MB 
flash.  So, it's no powerhouse.  You might look into linux boxes (to do 
an SSH VPN, IPSEC with FreeSwan, or OpenVPN for an SSL-based VPN), a 
Cisco PIX, or a SonicWall.  I warn you that VPN is not an easy thing.  
PPTP is fairly simple (and it works with win98 clients with no 3rd party 
software).  But, it's also proven to be insecure.

VPN appliances are not cheap (probably $500-$1000 for one that can 
handle any sort of load).  But, you might be able to use a soekris board 
with a linux firmware that supports some VPN technology.  Those are 
still cute and tiny (with plenty of horsepower), but cheaper.

Luck to ya,

 wondering if someone could tell me what is the easiest router for setup. 
  
 Also, does one have to have a VPN server( i.e Windows or Linux) or 
 does the router take place of this for remote connections.
  
 The senario I have is one central office with 2 satalite offices that 
 connect to central.  The central office having the main VPN router.  I 
 want to have the two seperate locations seen in the network

 Would this be a router to router VPN?  If so what are the easiest

The orthogon software upgrade pertaining to the 5.4 gzh band only applies to
the Gemini 5.4 capable unit only wich is for the Euro Market, non US based
gear has been certified yet for 5.4 ghz

From the Orthogon release notes:

1.1 Support for the 5.4GHz Hardware Variant
The Orthogon Systems OS-Gemini product range has a new frequency variant to
compliment its existing 5.8GHz product range. The new 5.4GHz hardware
variant operates between 5.470 to 5.725GHz (defined as the ETSI 5 GHz band

As far as I know, the hardware/software has to be contention based to be

allowed to operate in this spectrum.

I can tell you that Orthogon has already released the firmware upgrade for
the Gemini product to be used for the 5.4 Spectrum.

I just sent an email to them about the release date for the Spectra upgrade.

 I talked to the FCC the other day.  5.4 is at the grammatical checking 
 stage.  All of the hard work is done.  Should see product soon.

 They (the FCC) has extended the certification of the existing rules (5.4's

 rules also affect new 5.2 gig gear) for the current crop of 5.2 gig gear. 
 Only till around June though.  The new rules should be well in place by 
 then.

I would strongly suggest looking at Mikrotik for the following reasons.

#1 - Pricing - very inexpensive to maintain and swap out equipment in the event
of a failure
#2 - You can provide them up to 36meg connectivity for the same pricing anyone
can offer then 10megs
#3 - Ease of replacements

You can also provide them Wi-Fi connectivity with a MT Based system for laptops
in between the properties if they desire. The reason I suggest MT is the amount
of flexibility and options you can tack are are far superior to any proprietory
solution out there you can get your hands on.

The Cellular Sector is pushing for

organization not like other Manufacturers. And The Cellular Division is
pushing for licensing the 3.65 band so they can sell more BTS to the Cell operators.AFAIK,
the Canopy group has nothing to do with this since they are on another Division

I would strongly suggest looking at Mikrotik for the following reasons.

#1 - Pricing - very inexpensive to maintain and swap out equipment in the event
of a failure
#2 - You can provide them up to 36meg connectivity for the same pricing anyone
can offer then 10megs
#3 - Ease of replacements

You can also provide them Wi-Fi connectivity with a MT Based system for laptops
in between the properties if they desire. The reason I suggest MT is the amount
of flexibility and options you can tack are are far superior to any proprietory
solution out there you can get your hands on.

As well as battery backup units all installation work etc. Additional cpe is possible but not guaranteed in the future.My question is, what do I charge for this? I can handle the monthly part but I've never put a service contract on a wlan before. Used to do it in my copier days all the time so I understand the concept. Just need some help with the numbers.The site is about 1.5 hours from me, and that far from anyone else that knows anything about anything too. I believe that the contract price should be tied to cpe deployed.Too low and any repair work, device failures etc. will kill me. Too high and I'll loose the deal. What's standard in the industry? As I'll be using Trango I'll hopefully be giving them 8 to 9 megs of throughput (all sites are within 1/8th of a mile) from building to building. I'll likely only contract for 6 megs though.thanks,Marlon

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Mikrotik Bridging w-Nstreme

Thought I'd share my test results on NStreme.

I am happy with John Tulley's (Mikrotik's) attitude, in the sense that they 
are constantly trying to improve their product, and listening to comments 
from users of their product, and attempting to make sure users are not 
misinformed about the features of their product. They are smart guys, that 
have a lot of skin in the game, and experience beyond many in this industry.

I think Mikrotik is on to something, in their attempt to make a better 
protocol to enhance Wifi, and commend them on their guts to do so. However, 
with that said, I was rather disappointed with the results of NStreme in my 
testing.  I think its still needs a lot of work.

I used the same test bed I've been talking about the past few days 
(originally with Trango), 10 miles, -47db rssi on Mikrotik w/Range5, one 
radio per 532 MB, 2 ft quickfire dish.

My goal was to test how Mikrotik handled packet loss, when it was thrown at 
it at different speeds.  I used three primary tools for testing performance.

Mikrotik's included Btest/bandwdith tester and Iperf TCP and IPerf UDP.

I was surprised to see that Mikrotik's Built-in BTest program actually 
performed (on Average) pretty darn close to the results that I got with 
Iperf. It was hard to tell that at first because BTest is a bit jumpy with 
sparatic speeds, but the average reading was pretty close if an eye was kept

on it.  Iperf was more accurate in getting precise results.  The most useful

test is Iperf UDP. The reason is that Iperf will show you at what point 
(speed) you start to get packet loss and how much. All of Mikrotik's 
performance tests, leave out packet loss in their results, so you can't 
see the effect or choke points.  In a real world enviroment, with lots of 
subscribers and over subscription, its likely that a link will get hammered 
from time to time, and nice to know what will happen from a packet loss 
point of view when limits are reached.  But the biggest help of Iperf UDP, 
is to detect the MAX speed possible from the radio, and at what trade off of

packet loss.  The Iperf UDP speed results is what should be utilized for 
configuring bandwdith management tools. Tke note: That Iperf purpose is to 
see what point packetloss will occur, and it ALWAYS occurs with any 
connection which is pushed beyond its limits. no inteligence at other layers

is applied to slow tranmittingto reduce packet loss.

My goal was to compare Nstreme to not using NStreme. (used new version 9.12)

The majority of the time the Station side, negotiated at 54 mbps, however on

the AP-bride side negotiated speed could jump around from 48mbps to 6 mbps. 
but usually around 36 mbps (QAM16) majority of the time.  I was watching the

negotiated rate at the same time as testing to look for modulation change. 
It didn't change often. To be clear tests were done with WDS mode, and all 
default auto settings. Polling was turned off since a PtP link. And best 
fit, was tried on and off, however, that would not have much effect, as 
Iperf was sending consistent size packets of 1470 bytes.  Often people will 
see better speeds and less packet loss when testing with smaller packets, 
but to get menaing ful results its important to test a full packet size.

Mikrotik reported a Tx CCQ of 93-98% and noise floor of -101, in status of 
WLAN..

In Iperf you set the speed at which you want to send data to the link, and 
then it reports the speed transfer at and at what packet loss.  I ran the 
tests several times for each speed, so I had a good average to consider.

I was stunned by the results.

Using NStreme
Throughput (mbps) /  Packet loss.
6M / .12%
8M / 1% - 2.4%
10M / 1.2% - 8%
12M / 4%
13M / 8.3%
15M / 21%
18M / 35%

In summary, NStreme could perform well without packet loss at about up to 
8mbps.

Using Standard Wifi

10M / .73%
12M / .36%
13M / 1.8%
18M / 2.2%
19M and up- started to see high packet loss

Without NStreme, I could push almost 18mbps at the same packet loss 
Nstreme's 8mbps. And at 12mbps, I got very low packet loss. So in summary, 
Standard Wifi doubled the throughput of NStreme.

Unless there is some hidden tuning commands for NStreme, its not cutting it 
yet, over default Wifi.

Using Mikrotiks BTest, I got about 8M (4mbps in each direction) with 
NStreme, and about 12M (6-7mbps one way, and 5-6mbps in the other.). 
Likewise I tried Iperf TCP, which produced results very similar to 
Mikrotik's average.

Note: understand that this enviroment may have some noise considerations, 
tested to be around -80db with Trango. I tested the Mikrotik using 5.3Ghz, 
but

Subject: [WISPA] M5580 feedback and Dish mounting help


The Trango M5580 is a great product and been working well from a stability 
perspective and price point, and glqd to have it as an option. However, 
there are several challenges to deal with.

There are two negatives that creates a third.

1) 8 db int antenna, so 7 db less than Fox5800.
2) No longer supports RF Threshhold command.

The range drops down to two miles, giving you a -74 signal, more easilly 
able to survive the noise using DSSS.
However when upgraded to OFDM, I'm concerned about the low gain of the radio

being able to survive the noise with adequate singal to noise threshold. 
I'm guessing the range will be more like 1 mile to have high enough signal 
to support the high modulations. Unless of course the dish install is used. 
This is where we make a savings. Using a inexpensive M5580 w/ dish apposed 
to Fox-D.

The foxes without the dish was convenient because we could mount lower, on 
the side of the wall or under eves. Now we are in most cases goingto be 
required to mount on the roof or on the side of the house at the peak.  I 
hate drilling down into the roof, for water proof liability reasons, but its

likely that may have to start happening.

What we are finding is that most of the houses we are targeting, we are 
finding that the peaks are taller than our 30 ft ladders can reach, and 
often taller than our 40 foot ladders can reach.  We are also finding our 
underserved area, are larger homes with very steep peaked roofs, causing 
safety issues.  We often will carry a 20 ft section of ladder with hooks, 
and lift it onto the peak as our method to climb. But when the edge of the 
roof is up 30 feeet, its scary pulling the ladder up, to lift onto the roof.

Clearly a two man job, that takes care.  What we are finding that we are 
doing instead, is we are finding a way up to the peak of the roof, and then 
we straddle the peak so we can safely manuver to the  side edge where we 
mount a Pole (with M-mount and contilever mount), and have DSS dish extend 
over the roof line.  Its can be difficult hangling down over the edge to 
mount the bottom cross bar to stablize the pole.

So my question is, how are people optimizing this process? I know some one 
makes a pre-made kit in steel, for this type of mount, without needing to 
cut 2x4s.  Whats the best place to find these mounts, and what thickness do 
they need to be to adequately support the Fox Dishes?

I need to make the determination if we can cost effectively still mount to 
the side of the house easilly for these installations, or if we have to 
lower ourselves to Cable TV standard, and screw through the roof :-(   And 
at what point we are better off staying with Fox5800 SUs, apposed to the 
timely and more costly install requirements.

Any suggestions to speed this mounting process is helpful. ( at heights 
higher than 40 feet, for DISH mounting )

One of the guys at The Trango show had some suggestions on this, but I 
misplaced the info I got from him on part numbers.

I was consodering upgrading to a bucket truck, but most cost effective 
bucket trucks wont get us up to the 45 feet peak height requirement in most 
cases.  (walk out basements, with Step peaked roof, and multiple stories are

common here and killers of the quick install)

One thing is that Wimax wont certify gear in the 700 , 900 or other bands
and the other is that Manufacturers release gear in those band with the same
specs of Wimax, just without the Wimax logo...

Still doesnt change the fact that wimax sadly looked over 900mhz  
( not that a wimax phy or mac would
work well in 900 mhz )

Subject: Re: [WISPA] 3 ft Dual Pol antennas

I actually got clarification on the Pacwireless solutions yesterday.
2 ft feeds do not work for 3 ft dishes, different lengths.
The PacWireless is a dual pol feed on a 3 ft dish, but only has the gain of 
less than a 2 ft dish.
The purpose of upgrading from a two foot to three foot was to increase gain 
not decrease it.
So PacWirelesslesses Dual Pol dish today, is a useless product. I was told, 
its in engineering now for a redesign.

Gabrial 2ft dual pol- 28.9 dbi   ($350) - best value to day.
Radiowaves or Andrews 3ft dual pol- 32 dbi ($1024) - desperate to get 3 more

db.
Gabriel 4 ft Dual Pol -34.5 db ($1000.)
Pacwireless 2ft single pol - 29 dbi ($180)
Pacwireless 3 ft single pol- 32 dbi ($250) - Very cost effective Option, if 
you can live with Single Pol.
Pacwireless Dual Pol (3 ft)- 27 dbi. ($450) - worthless.

There is a clear gap in our options for 3 ft dual pol, and good value.

Four feet dishes are a big pain, won't fit through some hallways and most 
roof hatches. And the windload is atrocious, when trying to mount it.

Three feet dishes are MUCH easier to work with, half the windloading, are 
safe to install on existing wall mounted masts of slightly smaller diameter 
(2.5) left from Teligent and simliar companies.  But yet maximizes the 
available DB able to get from an antenna for a link.

I'd really like to see a 3 ft Dual pol option under $600, at some point. 
What really is Dish antenna anyway? More or less just a large trash can lid!

How much can it really cost? Its not that difficult. I'd like to see 
PacWireless finish the job, and redesign that feed to get the 32 dbi that it

should be able to get.  Or Gabriel to fill in the hole. What I'd really like

to see is Maxrad make a Dual pol version of their 3 ft dish. There 3 foot 
single pol dish was the best we have ever tested from a gain point of view, 
really sweat.  It out performed all the 4 fts from competitors. Its around 
$450 but its only single pol now :-(

others are able to use the same radio cards with similar antennas with

Ah..Lets do some math...

Lets say the radio has a +20 dB output.  For this example there is no 
line loss.  The antenna is rated at 30dB x-pole isolation.  Here we go...

+20 dB
-30dB xpole
=
-10 dB receive level. 

In my book that is high enough to kill any link of the same freq on the 
opposite polarityNo???

Add to that a radio that needs to Rx and Tx on and off and you should 
have receiver blocking...

ebay, The new SM lite has a MRSP of $200 on 25 packs, usually you can

Bob, I hear what you're saying and have been through the figures a few
times
and even tried turning the power of the radio cards down to 1dB output
(still unable to run both links simultaneously) but this doesn't explain
why
others are able to use the same radio cards with similar antennas with
little to no problems.

Charles, unfortunately Canopy isn't a financially viable solution at
present. I have a rough idea of these 2 terms but I'll research them a
little deeper to see if they shed some light. Anything else that may
help on
my quest?

Ah..Lets do some math...

Lets say the radio has a +20 dB output.  For this example there is no 
line loss.  The antenna is rated at 30dB x-pole isolation.  Here we
go...

+20 dB
-30dB xpole
=
-10 dB receive level. 

In my book that is high enough to kill any link of the same freq on the 
opposite polarityNo???

Add to that a radio that needs to Rx and Tx on and off and you should 
have receiver blocking...

 Depending on various factors, you should see at least 15db of

 Theoretically, you should see 20db. In any case, 15db is enough 
 attenuation even on the same channel to operate two links reliably.

 List,

 When antennas are separated by normal distances, they can only see

 are close they will experience capacitive and inductive coupling.  
 Dual pol antennas work fine when only receiving (as in those large 
 satellite dishes from the 80's that used 90° pol changes between 
 adjacent channels).  I think you will always have trouble overloading

 the receiver when transmitting with this setup.

Hi,

I would recommend that you do some research on the terms dynamic range
and
front-end compression as it relates to your particular hardware /
radio
platform.  Understanding those terms / concepts will give you the
understanding you need to make your homebrew system work

Otherwise, if you want to just plug and pray your network -- you're
better
off probably just buying quality name brand products that have enough
built-in safeties to let one just mindlessly deploy

-Charles

P.S. -- although I happen to have an understanding of Rf theory, HAM
stuff,
and Radio engineering, when I ran my WISP, I found that in the long run,
it
made better business sense to subscribe to a lazy WISP plug-and-pray
mentality due to the fact that I liked knowing that I could focus my
core
efforts on sales, marketing and customer service.  From a deployment
side, I
could just put some stuff up and have the ability to blame all my system
mishaps on my friendly manufacturer / vendor =)

RE: [WISPA] Good Backhaul?

2005-12-20 Thread G.Villarini
John ,

Youre best and cheap option here is a 38 ghz lic. Backhaul.  For around
$1000 or less you can buy the whole DS3 link with antennas, youll need to
buy a pair of DS3 to Ethernet converters if you want Ethernet (around $1500
or less for the pair).  The license lease is around $500 anually

This will give you a full duplex 45 mbps link with a 1 - 2 ms round trip
delay

we're talking 900 mhz, right? I don't use Moto 2.4 or 900 mhz stuff. 
never tried 2.4 and the 900 mhz didn't work for me - but it was a press. 
some 15 miles with NLOS so.. it could have been a path too challanging 
even for 900 mhz.

$295 for a 900 mhz radios is very good. You still have to add $100 for a 
900 mhz antenna. I've stayed away from 900 mhz mostly because of the 
learning curve and additional spectrum/antenna considerations. They are 
much bigger of course than 5.7 or 5.7 antennas/reflectors for the same 
gain, but that's obvious.

Still $260 for 5.7 ghz radio with spectrum analyzer built-in, audio tone 
alignment, weights a few ounces, goes a few megabits / second, supports 
vlan tagging, dhcp / nat / shoulder-spectrums / has snmp / is supported 
by a network mass-firmware upgrade program (yes, its really crap, but at 
least its *there*). I could easily do remote upgrades of 30 units at a 
time without headache to move to new featured firmware - live, online, 
no crap-outs...

Like I said, it isn't for everyone, that's for sure. It just was for me.

You would think it would work that way, but Volume Buying ends up eating 
the organization and the organization becomes caught up in being a 
volume club.
/snip

We all know that there's more to a WISP than just putting up an AP and
getting a T1 line

Having run both a WISP and a distribution company, I can personally attest
to the fact that there's more to distribution (which is what your proposing)
than breaking up a 500 pack amongst WISP

Have you considered all the risks / implications that the buying group
faces? For starters, there's the question of payment -- given that the
buying group has no / limited credit, chances are that any vendor will
require cash up front for the purchase

So, for example, say Motorola Canopy is the product WISPA chooses
Then WISPA / Buying Group needs to come up w/ $100k to purchase that 500
pack (at say, $200 / unit for simplicity's sake)
Then, WISPA / Buying Group needs to come up w/ a warehouse to store stuff
Then, WISPA / Buying Group needs to come up w/ a shipper/logistics guy to
repackage / ship stuff

On top of that, chances are, 50% of the WISPs who committed to purchasing
the packs will renege and/or delay their deliveries due to unforseen things
that always happen in deployments (e.g.,  lightning, customers don't sign
on, interference from competitor, DSL coming to town)

So now, WISPA / Buying Group needs to hire a sales guy to sell excess units

Now, you've added overhead (and you need to add an administrative fee /
margin to compensate)

In the meantime, either

1. Motorola to announce a 50% price reduction in their Canopy line, and all
WISPA members now wanting the new lower price (therefore causing a huge
loss)
2. Trango (or some other company) to come out w/ the new flavor of the
month and no one wanting the inventory anymore, sticking WISPA w/ $100k
worth of boat anchors

Go get some Canopy client radios for $260 each, complete  - check the 
performance, ease to install and setup. We did homebrew for quite a 
while and it has its downside as we're seeing. Just my opinion. You get 
a nice spectrum analyzer built-in, 2 minute setup, 2 minute test once 
its placed. Audible signal strength - no pc needed on the ladder. There 
are lots of solutions. 5.2 / 5.7 ghz Moto stuff runs thousands of 
subscribers. I'm not affliated with Moto/Canopy and don't ask me to sell 
you anything.

Best wishes.

 Hello to the list...

 My name is Mark Nash and I own  operate a little WISP of about 300
 customers in Oregon.

 For CPE, I started out using Breezecom 2.4GHz FH radios then switched to
 Karlnet RSU's loaded w/Turbocell.  Then the YDI/Terabeam/Proxim 
 series of
 mergers  acquisitions happened and I've got products from all 
 companies but

 they are all Turbocell CPE.

 We have 6 WiPops surrounding our customer base (rural southern 
 Willamette
 Valley).  We're using Trango backhauls...I started out using them simply
 because of their low cost and advertised bandwidth.  I still have two 
 in use

 from when the company was called Sunstream (I think it was 2002).  I 
 remain
 happy about that decision.

 We started out with a bridged network then ARP changed my tune and we 
 went
 to a routed design.

 OK, so...there it is.  For those of you who know what's going on with
 Turbocell from the new Proxim, you probably know that I'm not happy 
 as they
 have set out to discontinue the Turbocell client software.  So I will 
 soon
 have to purchase new AP's and shift some customers around because I 
 won't be

 able to purchase Turbocell-based devices.  That's the word from Proxim.
 So...anyone heard any differently?  I've also asked Proxim if we can
 'downgrade' our Turbocell products to 802.11b and they are saying 'no'.

 It's a you-know-what sandwich from which I'd rather not take a bite.

 Does anyone feel my pain?  Any way around these issues aside from 
 replacing
 CPE?

The same way you do it if you didn't run DHCP.  Use PPPoE, HotSpot,
static DHCP based on MAC, ACL for association at the AP, any number of
ways.

DHCP has little to do with authentication, although it can be a part
of the process.  What DHCP does is automate the user TCP settings so
that if you renumber your system in order to move to routing it is
painless to assign new numbers.  If you have to change DNS servers
then that is also easy.  Just change the DHCP config and within an
hour everybody is using the new DNS.

Don't run a network without it.  It is priceless.

 If you take Marlon's advice and do not run DHCP then you get to have
 that personal contact with each and every subscriber if you ever have
 to change network settings.  With DHCP running it is real simple and
 quick to edit the DHCP config and wait for the DHCP client renewal .
 
 My advice is completely the opposite.  Use DHCP for all of your
 customers.  You will be happy you did and will mutter things when you
 encounter someone who is not on DHCP.
 
 The personal contact is nice but what if you have several hundred
 customers?  That is just a little too nice for my tastes.

 With my setup, I am not looking for capacity, I am looking for maximum

 6 60* integrated APs?  Or is the coverage of the 60* not enough of an

Ok, then to go horizontal an external antenna is required.  Which also 
means, one would never be able to use the Canopy integrated unit.

Where do you Canopy users out there get your favorite 900 antennas at?

Subject: [WISPA] Atheros speed WRAP vs RB532

I just installed a link using CM9, Station Server, WRAP board, about 300 
yards away LOS, with only a single client so far on AP to SU mode.  The 
radios associated at 54 mbps, and about -70 db, with a quality of 24/29. 
All speed enhancement features enable, and encryption turned off.

Using Station server throughput test, testing from AP, the RX was 13.6 mbps,

and the TX was 9.1 mbps.

I thought that was odd, because I thought the TX would be faster. (AP to SU)

This supported my estimates that 54 mbps Atheros card's top real throughput 
(for 54 mbps) was about 14 mbps, in a best case scenario.   Then through in 
longer range links, interference, hidden node (or CTS/RTS to cure), 
retransmissions, heavy use links, and before you know real throughput can be

much less than 10 mbps.  Asumming of course Turbo Mode won't be used to hog 
up channels.

My tech question is... Is this being limited by the Atheros chipset, or the 
WRAP motherboard? If using the Mikrotik RB532 board with higher processing 
speed, can a single Atheros card transfer at a higher rate?

For those interested

My business decission question is:

1) If Atheros can't go higher than 10 mbps in real world PtMP and...
2) Trango has fixed its short range packet loss problem (which they have)
3) Trango has new low pricing on Fox-D2 CPE (dropped $100 or so)
4) Trango has better testing tools
5) Trango avoids all the problems of 802.11 standard and home brew that cost

ISPs aggrevations (accept large packets 1600b, pre-assembles, consistent 
availabilty, security, better remote management, ARQ, etc),

What reason would there be to use anything but Trango broadband, even for 
small community projects?

802.11 Atheros gives you...

1) Mesh designs
2) Relay radio designs, multiple antennas/links per single unit, with only a

$50 cost per radio card added.
3) HotSpot, compatible with laptops built-in config.
4) Built in VLAN switch, when used with Mikrotik RB532daughter card.
5) OMNI support, when 6 sector design not needed.
6) One radio to stock, that supports ALL Freqs, for easy on the fly 
adaptabilty (pending antenna swap).

#2 was good to reduce roof top colocation costs, by not needing to discuss 
the need to install two radios with a landlord for roof top approval.

My recent interest, was for #4 and #5 for a small multi-building / 
multi-tenant complex.
I reduce AP costs, by using only one AP w/ OMNI (OK for short range), 
apposed to Trango sector model. In a worse case scenario, where a Trango 60 
degree, would cover all MTUs based on edge of complex placement, Mikrotik 
802.11 would still save about $400 on the AP side.  On the MTU side, I would

normally pay $385 for 802.1q VLAN switch (24 port) for EACH building, 
apposed to $99 additional for Mikrotik RB daughter card (total of 9 ports 
including RB532).  Many complexes have less than 8 subscribers per building.

But if we use an example of a 4 building project, the savings for a VLAN 
switch  would add up quick to around $1100, and adding simplicity with 
maintenance of only one device (the CPE/Router/VLAN combo) instead of two 
devices (VLAN switch and CPE Router).  It also reduces costs for remote 
reboot devices, as the Mikrotik has a hardware watch dog, where as a typical

VLAN switch would not.  We use WDS to accomplish VLAN support.  We use VLAN 
support for several reasons.  1) it protects end users from seeing other end

users for security. 2) It allows us to more easilly centrally bandwidth 
manage and route via VLAN (per customer), apposed to paying attention to IPs

and MACs which may have the need to change over time, or may not be known in

advance.   3) Prevents customer's misconfigurations from effecting other 
users' links or router configs. Because the traffic doesn't cross paths, it 
can't conflict. The misconfigured client only gets effected.

 I will say, after all the time it has taken me to order, deploy, figure out

how to configure, and wait for equipment stalling reocurring revenue, I'd 
argue I would have saved by just deploying Trango and VLAN switches to the 
project.

Another problem, is that if VLAN is used, its no longer possible to use a 
Trango sector for both VLAN and non-VLAN customers at the same time, because

large VLAN packets would get their would be no VLAN device on the Non-VLAN 
custoemrs to untag

In summary...

1) If Trango would add a third external connector option to their 5830AP 
line, like the 900APs, it would drastically reduce the justification of home

brew wifi, making it much more affordable to use Trango for these type 
projects.  It still wouldn't fix the VLAN cost reductions,

Covad to acquire NextWeb for
$23 mln

Wed Oct 5, 2005 06:56 AM ET 



Oct 5 (Reuters) - Covad Communications Group
(DVW.A: Quote,
Profile,
Research)
, a provider of integrated voice and data communications, on Wednesday said it
agreed to acquire Internet provider NextWeb Inc. for about $23 million in cash
and stock. 

Covad also said it would assume $1.7 million in net debt under the
deal. 








Our acquisition of NextWeb accelerates
Covad's entry into the emerging wireless broadband market, Covad Chief
Executive and President Charles Hoffman said in a statement. 



The deal, which includes $4 million in cash and $19 million in
Covad shares, is expected to close by the end of the year. 

Covad said a portion of its shares to be issued would be
restricted from sale in the open market for a period of time. 



Privately held NextWeb is California's
largest fixed-wireless service provider for business. 



Shares in Covad closed at $1.05 on Tuesday on the American Stock
Exchange. (Reporting by Renu Pariyadath in Bangalore)

I'm thinking the leg straps is what cuts off the circulation.  Is
this thinking correct?

It is not that the circulation is cut off.  Veins (the blood vessels
that move blood back to the heart) do not have the ability to move
blood without the muscles around them moving.  The veins in your
body have valves every so often that assist in moving the blood back
to the heart.  The problem described in the article is not a result
of blood flow being cut off.  Rather, the problem described is one
where the muscles in your legs are inactive, and therefore, do not
force the blood back up to the heart.  This results in a lowered
volume of blood for available for the heart to pump.  In this
situation, your heart will automatically reduce the flow of blood
by slowing down.  As stated in the article, usually, this reduction
in blood flow will result in the victim fainting, which, for someone
on the ground, is a good thing, because a victim that is prone
(horizontal), gravity can get the blood (at least some of it) back
into the system, and the blood volume will increase.  HOWEVER, since
the vicitim is strapped into an upright position on a tower, this
does not occur, and gravity keeps the blood in the legs.

The thing to learn, for a tower climber, is that it is not a good
idea to let your legs rest by hanging from your positioning gear
with your legs completely inactive for extended periods.  By
extended here, I mean 2-4 minutes.  When I climb, I will sometimes
relax by allowing my legs to dangle below me for a few seconds.
For me, this is not a very comfortable position, but it is nice to
remove the pressure on my feet for a few seconds.

I find this article especially interesting, because when I was in
college, I was a pre-med student, and my love was circulatory
system studies.  :-)

 Your only 21 years old, CONGRATS!
 
 When I read about guys like you and Kurt , who is still in high school 
 and running a wisp, it makes me happy and proud of you guys that are 
 starting life embracing a business and making a go at it.
 
 So keep up the hard work, someday you'll look back on this era of your 
 life and understand why your a success at what ever you will be doing
then.
 
 I strongly believe in young people  getting involved and participating 
 in the business world.
 
 It's a sign of independence and ingenuity, which is what drives the 
 American way.
 
 Congrats again!
 
 George

trick questions that I'll answer wrong.  Than you may insult me.

WISPA:

Good morning,

You are missing out on some very useful information from seasoned
Operators on a wide range of gear. It has been nice to hear the success
stories from the Canopy and Trango operators.  I have enjoyed the
comparison sessions on the Backhauls and 900 MHz gear.  Good advanced
information from what I have seen in the WISPNOG session.  There appears
to be good number in attendance.  

There has been no shortage of FREE delicious food.  

Park City is beautiful.

Good Job - Charles  Staff. 

WiNOG 3 - How about St. Louis, MO?

Best regards,

Jeff
