This note just came up on Scott Steven's Facebook page:

On a mountain top, overlooking the ocean, at a tower site in Northern 
Washington on Monday, October 15th, Scottie sadly took his own life. They say 
the spot was beautiful, and everyone knows that broadband technology was his 
passion; perhaps he is finally at peace.

He left behind three children; Sahara, Tate, and Ty. His dad Jay, mom Deb, 
brothers Shawn and Chad, and his sister Jenny. And many family and friends who 
will miss him dearly.

There will be a gathering to share stories, look at pictures of his life, write 
messages that will be carried away by balloons, journal memories in a notebook 
that will be given to his boys Tate and Ty and his daughter Sahara, and embrace 
all of those who lost him.

All are welcome, his kids deserve the opportunity to know their dad through 
your experiences with him. His laughter was contagious, his mind was brilliant, 
and like us all...sometimes, he could be a bit of a punk; no matter your 
history with him, come share your stories and hear all of ours.

An event will be created soon and the invitation is open to all. We will open 
the house up to guests on November 3rd, 2018 (Saturday). We would love locals 
to bring a dish to share too!!

November 3, 2018 (11/3/18)
Location: Hood River, OR
*Address will be in event details.
Time: 1pm to closing:)

Please feel free to message any of us for additional details:

We are all very sad and this is very difficult for the boys who are 11 & 9, and 
Sahara who is 19.

[WISPA] Wispapalooza - Where is the Gear Beef?

2017-10-13 Thread Gino A. Villarini
It doesn’t seen that Wispapalooza is the new gear coming out party it once was? 
No new gear announced? Has the industry lost its shine?

Nothing new from Mimosa

UBNT just showing just another 5 ghz backhaul

Cambium with just another backhaul too? And AC Epmp… nothing spectacular either

Where is the new gear in 24 ghz? Multiband backhaul? (5,24,60), more 60 ghz? 
SFP ports?

Broadband VI is in a similar predicament as Gino.  We had double the pleasure,

We are taking advantage of private relief aircraft for our critical material.

Since Aeronet is critical infrastructure, FEMA and DHS have people dedicated to 
helping Telcos.  Gino needs to find these people and have them ship down the 
gear he needs.

I am heading up the WECAT response for this. Please send me an 
email to bwebs...@wirelessmapping.com<mailto:bwebs...@wirelessmapping.com>. 
Gino Villarini is a large WISP on the island who has requested help. The 
problem is logistics right now. His replacement equipment is still stateside 
and we are working on ways to get it to him. He has asked that I coordinate the 
manpower resources and response. There are no scheduled commercial flights to 
the island yet. Until he gets the equipment there,. Having people show up is 
not prudent. He is working on a detailed manpower list for me once that 
equipment hits the island.

Subject: [WISPA] Puerto Rico assistance

Back in 2005 Mac Dearman had organized some relief for the gulf coast after 
Hurricane Katrina -- I believe it was under an organization called 
RadioResponse, which I'm not finding much on now.

I spent several weeks with them in Mississippi helping set up phones, 
communications, and computers for several of the shelters and helping some of 
the local WISPs get back on their feet.

Does anyone know of anything similar for Puerto Rico? I don't have much for 
resources but do have an authorized climber certification and a strong 
electrical, mechanical, network, and WISP background that I'm sure could 
benefit any similar effort if there is one.


Thanks,

Dan

To the extent any WISPA member needs relief from FCC rules in an emergency 
situation (e.g., an STA to operate at variance from FCC licenses), that is 
something that we are prepared to do.  But, that need is not known right now.  
I understand Gino is in contact with the feds on the ground in PR, and Mike 
Meluskey has reported that he is working with them in USVI.  Brian Webster and 
I are communicating about equipment delivery, but I’m not sure if that is a 
FEMA/DHS issue or not.  There is equipment stateside for Gino, we just need to 
get it there.  I know Brian is working hard on that, and I’ve tried as well.

It is not Cisco or Sonicwall! The list is long. For us we have always been a 
Cisco & Mikrotik shop, but felt we were messing  a piece of the security and 
firewall business. Mikoritk has a great firewall, but it is not active o what 
you would consider an Enterprise firewall. Cisco has a great firewall, but it 
is expensive and complex.

We got involved with Fortinet through a client who needed support for several 
hundred units. Once we started dealing with Fortinet we quickly realized how 
powerful what they have built really is. The Unified Threat Management is very 
advanced and very scalable. There are several pieces that make it a  true 
Enterprise solution like the Forti-manger, the Forti-analyzer etc. On top of 
that the Next Gen, IPS, VPN forwarding and processing is very impressive, and 
so are the management, the Virtual Domain, the HA config, the Clustering 
technology and so on. We also do a lot of virtual routing and their 
Fortigate-VM is very nice too. There is a reason these guys are growing so fast 
and are on the top of every security vendor list out there.

Another thing is that they really vet their partners. One thing that I have 
noticed in the security industry is that if a IT guys says he/she is using a 
sonicwall, that is a potential red flag.  +80% of the time they have no idea 
what they are doing. When someone says they are a Fortinet Partner, they have 
been through the proper training, been vetted and it is much more likely you 
are talking to someone who knows what they are doing.

Patrick, I agree with your engineer's description.  But I'd argue the use of
the word prioritization is incorrectly applied to Canopy.  Canopy doesn't
prioritize VoIP.  Priority schemes infer media access preference.  Canopy's
separate pre-allocated partitions have nothing to do with prioritization as
VoIP and general traffic do not compete for a common partition (they each
have their own).

VL uses prioritization (and uses the term correctly), as VoIP is given
priority access (most likely by permitting access with a shorter time gap
following other transmissions than general data ... thus VoIP grabs the
media first).  If VL claims to be the first to implement a VoIP priority it
only depends whether anyone else has implemented a true priority scheme
already.  Canopy's is not a priority scheme in any sense of the term.
Prioritization has the clear advantage (no pun intended).  Canopy
essentially divides the rf into subchannels which loses the ability to
dynamically use the channel for in-vs-out, VoIP-vs-general, etc.  As the 3rd
party testing described, the VoIP call volume cited could only be achieved
in a VoIP-only configuration.  A true prioritization mechanism (such as
embodied in VL) is far superior to pre-allocated partitions in so, so many
ways.

  Gino,

  After you informed me of the way prioritization occurs in your solution,
  I asked one of our sharp engineers to articulate the differences to me.
  Here was his reply back and I'd be interested in your feedback:

  
  The [prioritization mechanism in the] __ system is different than VL
  in the way it is deployed and the way it will deploy a priority network.
  With VL the bandwidth for the sector is totally dynamic, any direction
  demand can utilize the entire capacity of the base station.  __
  pre-defines the amount up and down to the sector.  Their implementation
  of the prioritization is stated for DSCP only where we can do it also
  for ToS.  I am not sure if that is unique but keep it in the back of
  your head.  

  Our WLP is also dynamic; where he stated that you specify the amount of
  bandwidth for the priority channel, our can/will fluctuate every
  microsecond during the communication.  This will also happen
  independently in each direction.  Because there is a potential for over
  subscription of prioritized traffic, VL also has an option to set aside
  some bandwidth for best effort traffic incase the provider creates too
  much prioritized traffic.  This prevents the FTP from a customer from
  breaking during the high priority traffic times.  
  

  Make sense?

Set how much bandwidth this high priority channel would use

And you are done,

The Sector AP identifies all the cpes on the sector using this feature

assings them a 2nd slot of time for this traffic for each cpe, so  cpe's

I don't think so Gino, but I'm open to be proven wrong. Tell me who else
can actually prioritize over the air sector wide. I'm talking about not
just pushing out the voice first on any given CPE, I'm talking about ALL
the CPE on a sector being able to send its que'd voice out before any

So why not just use VL with firmware version 4.0 without getting the WLP
feature? The WLP is the key to get the quantity AND THE QUALITY of
service since it reserves air priority for the VoIP. So, in a double

I believe it can now be said without reservation, that if you are using

Or do 5.8 full power and expect a -63 using cm9 cards

I do use their dishes where I have a large enough tower, water tower or a
 roof. I will tell ya though - - the 29dbi grids are mighty fine, much less
 expensive than a solid dish, wind load is no comparison as well as the 
 ease
 of mounting. If you are leasing tower space - - the grid is a no brainer
 unless you have to have the extra db that comes with a dish.

I just installed a PTP 900Mhz Atheros SR9 StarOSV3 link that had 5% packet 
loss that I could not get rid of.
(Set 12mbps modulation, and averaged greater than 20db SNR.)

In theory, CSMA/CA should not get PAcket loss, like a TDD system might, as 
the CSMA waits for acknowledment and re-transmits if it does not get it, 
Wifi's built-in native ARQ.

I was not surprices to see Latency skyrocket, or retransmisson to sky 
rocket, but I was surprised to see uncorrectable 5% packetloss.
Any ideas on why it occured.  Meaning why 802.11 MAC didn't self correct the

packet loss with its native re-transmission?

Subject: RE: [WISPA] Alvarion Comnet Radios have arrived - 
regardinginterference - Part 1


I go to see Mickey Mouse for a few days and look where this thread has
gone...wow

So, my 2 cents...

One of the largest concerns in the license-exempt world is the question of a
system's interference robustness.  However, before we can get into further
detail on the pros and cons of Alvarion VL vs Canopy, CSMA/CA vs GPS, etc --
it is necessary to realize that interference as a term is extremely broad
and vague, and can mean just about anything to anyone.  Heck, all radios in
the market have some sort of interference robustness / avoidance
capability -- the trick to understanding a system's capabilities is knowing
what TYPE of interference the system can actually handle.  Read on...I'll
talk more about each particular platform when I get some time to write Part
2 =)



WHAT IS INTERERENCE?

In the wireless world, interference, by definition, is a situation where
unwanted radio signals operate in the same frequency channels or bands -
i.e. they mutually interfere, disrupt or add to the overall noise level in
the intended transmission.

Interference can be divided into two forms, based on whether it comes from
your own network(s) or from an outside source.  If the interfering RF
signals emanate from a network under your control, whether it is on the same
tower or several miles away, it is termed self-interference.  If the
opposing signals come from a network, device or other source that is not
under your control, it is termed outside interference.  Thus, the
definition of what type of interference is being combated is not based on
technology, but ownership.

In licensed bands, where spectrum is relatively scarce (due to high costs)
self-interference alone must be taken into account; however given a more or
less known operating environment (the radio spectrum will only have signals
transmitting that are under control by a single entity) proper product
design and network deployment can reduce these interferes to a level where
they do not impact network performance.

Self-interference is not a phenomenon that is confined to licensed band
operations; license-exempt bands must address the same issues.  The
techniques and design elements of a given product that serve to reduce and
tame self-interference in licensed band operations can be applied directly
to license-exempt systems.

THE LICENSE-EXEMPT CHALLENGE OF INTERFERENCE

In the license-exempt bands, not only must self-interference be accounted
for, but, given the nature of the regulations governing these bands,
external interference must be designed for as well.  This can be extremely
challenging, as there is no way of knowing in advance where these outside
signals may be or will be sourced from, or even how strong the interfering
transmissions will be relative to the desired transmission.  This aspect of
the license-exempt bands represents the possible downside of
license-exempt network operation.

Yet as potentially damaging and unpredictable as external interference can
be in license-exempt networks, a properly designed and implemented broadband
wireless system can make a significant difference in the performance of a
network under siege from unwanted external radio transmissions.

DEALING WITH COCHANNEL INTERFERENCE: PHY LAYER

1. Modulation  the C/I Ratio

At the most fundamental level, an interfering RF source disrupts the digital
transmission by making it too difficult for the receiving station to
decode the signal.  How much noise or interference a digital RF
transmission can tolerate depends on the modulation used.

Fundamentally, modulation is the method whereby zeros and ones are
communicated by varying one of three

Oh Patrick, you couldn't resist  Motorola is extremely conservative on
the spec sheet.  4.21 Mbps Net typical where you get that?  I got
Advantage customers at 10 miles getting full 14 Mbps ...It may not be the
most effective modulation, but is a very good compromise between performance
and interference rejection.  And don't negate the fact that GPS is a must

play nice with other carriers using Canopy... Why you think all cell
carriers rely on GPS ?

Jon,

With a proper channel plan that is just not the case, not to mention
things like ATPC. Things like WiMAX use it because there you are dealing
with small frequency allocations where every last ounce of efficiency
needs to be found. In UL that is not the case since there is so much
more spectrum to work with. 

Please don't try to tell me Canopy's use of GPS is good example of UL
efficiency. We both know Canopy's use of GPS is more the reality of the
fact that Canopy is always talking and has no ATPC so the GPS is used to
keep it from stepping on itself. 

And speaking about efficiency, even the Canopy Advantage is a very
inefficient modulation relative to something like VL. Advantage, but
Motorola's own spec sheet, delivers 4.25mbps net typical, 14mbps max (to
1 mile) in a 20MHz channel. VL does over 30mbps net max with typical
over the air in an LOS environment being something like 80% of that well
over 1 mile.

In any event, there exist too many examples to count of scaled VL
networks with co-located cells say you are incorrect in your assertion
that VL can't be built in a cellular topology. It is a silly thing to
assert in fact.

With VL, you still run into the issue of self interference in a cellular

deployment(many tower sites in a region). The only products I'm aware of

that cooperate properly in a cellular deployment are minimally GPS 
capable, and the advanced products that support things like hand-off or 
N:1 deployment go beyond that with 2-way base station to base station 
communication. Technologies such as wimax, 3G, fiber networks, etc. all 
use GPS to to improve efficiency and operation. IMO VL may still be a 
good product to deploy, but just not in a cellular or colocated 
deployment.

 The value of consistent availability and right out of the box 
 deployment is PRICELIST!  This doesn't only save cost of installer 
 labor, but also management labor in purchasing and aquisition.

 I'll share something from my experience that I find is Ironic as heck.

 I always looked at Alvarion as the high end market gear, but its being

 a stronger residential play.   I recently have done a lot with 
 War/StarV3 for high end business, mostly Point to Point links, because

 I can get good speed, flexibilty to reach the neighboring building, 
 and great testing tools with things like Iperf  BUILT-IN able to test 
 Ethernet connections as well as RF conclusively link by link, as hops 
 increase as the backbone mesh grows.  Alvarion is also a great product

 for high end business, which I'm also using in some cases, but I have 
 a higher cost to accomplish that, since StarOS has dual radio slots.  
 Where Alvarion has now shown undisputable advantage based on its new 
 low price, is in its residential application. The difference between 
 $185 and $285, is almost nothing compared to my time savings in 
 operations.  The ease of opening the box and installing a VL is 
 unmatched.  What VL does for me, is that it gives me confidence in 
 using subcontractors to isntall. Because I know they'll take the time 
 to make sure they get the best signal.  With my other gear, its such a

 pain to get best signal, I was afraid to use contractors and only do 
 installs with employees by the hour, so their income did not deter 
 them from doing their best job. I gladly pay $100 more for a complete

I had offered some time ago to help set up a WISPA sponsored and
maintained web mapping server. This server could be tied to a database and
have whatever security is desired to maintain data security. Actual network
coverage footprints for each and every WISP could be possible on these maps
with security implemented to not show the public who covers where. The
benefit of doing this would be to finally show people like the FCC and
Congress the combined footprint of the WISP industry as a whole. With this
combined footprint it is easy to calculate the population, households and
other socio economic data that the WISP industry serves TODAY. For whatever
reason this idea has never taken root. I was not willing to do all of this
for free so that probably stopped it cold. If WISPA were serious about doing
something of this nature I would certainly lend my expertise to outline the
methods and requirements to set something like this up (and yes I would do
that part for free). It's a geographic information systems based software
solution (GIS). Used properly it can be a powerful tool and if WISPA were
armed with this type of hard data they could really start to put pressure on
legislators. We would even be able to tell each legislator what the numbers
were for the WISP's in their specific districts, without a combined base map
data set of the WISP territories it is not possible. It requires all WISP's
to pull together and make their footprint be known and entered in to the
mapping server database. It does not require that it be made public nor
given over to any other entity. WISPA could be the guardian of the data.
This was what I thought WISPA could do for the industry a long time ago. I
made the suggestion but it did not seem like there was a collective voice
that wanted to do this. Is the time right to approach the idea again? If
anyone wants and idea of what types of things GIS can do, there is a link to
a PowerPoint presentation on my web site. It does not specifically address
the concept of what I am proposing but it gives the general idea.
This same system could also be used for any disaster planning and
recovery programs that Marlon mentions.

Those are great points Forbes.

Let me hit on a couple of points.  First, we'll be spending some time 
training again.  There are a lot of new people at the FCC and I hope to get 
them there.  They don't know what a WISP is or why we are so important in 
the market place, let alone what we actually do.  I'm going to try for TWO 
meetings.  One that's really basic and one that would get more detailed 
about current market trends, what's working well and what isn't etc.

Next, your idea on a goal to walk out of there with.  It just so happens 
I've been working, as time allows, on an idea.  As we talked on the phone 
the other day, you had a local disaster hit a week or two ago.  *I* should 
have been down there to help you get your customers back online.  We only 
had one customer go down and who would have known that his chimney and tv 
antenna and my antenna would come down in a 60 mph breeze.  After all, we 
had 80mph a year or two ago  *I* could have gone down there and helped 
out for a couple of days and only had to put off a few installs.  No bid 
deal, people would have understood.  I didn't think of going and you 
probably didn't think of asking.

The idea I've been working on is that we create a database.  A map actually.

On this map we'll list ever provider out there and what technology they use,

what skill sets they have (climbers, network admins etc.).  When a disaster 
hits (like what hit Seattle or whatever), someone with the authority to do 
so will click on the areas around the disaster and start contacting 
providers to see what they can do to help the guys that are in the disaster.

What needs to happen is for FEMA, FCC, Red Cross etc. appoints a liaison 
with WISPA, when the stuff hits the fan, they contact us saying that they 
need access, or whatever, in x areas and we get on the phone and start 
moving help into the area.

I want this to be an official deal.  I want wispa to be in the first few 
phone calls or emails.  I want us to do what we did after Katrina, but I 
want to do it better, faster and in a more coordinated manner

  That's a question that Larsen and I have been hunting an answer to for a
couple years. We both said we were going to sit back and collect some of our
initial investments back over a year ago. I know Larsen is still hanging
gear in every town along the 3 States he borders (get 'em son) and also
created one of the longest production wireless backhaul links (60+ miles)
of anybody anywhere that I am aware of. I too have built 7 new towers in the
last few months and built out about a dozen new towns and gone to all fiber.


My point is this - - - it's a vicious circle! When is enough - enough? We
get a new tower up and swear this is the last, but from that tower there
is another community that is yet without internet connectivity and just one
more little hop will get them caught! It's a never ending story - - - looks
like we need a wireless anonymous group to help us break the cycle!!

 If you find the cure - - send Larsen and myself a double dose.

 Hi,

 Just taking a quick survey... answer if you can, but be honest... ;)

 What is the salary of the CEO of your ISP? Even if you can share the
 percentage of that salary compared to annual gross revenue...

they bought up a bunch of university 2.5  2.6 G licenses

A Orthogon Spectra will provide 111 Mbps in a 28 mile link using 4 ft dishes
on both ends , that's factoring a -75 db noise floor.  99.77% uptime.

And you have the advantage of a really intelligent radio that will work
around interference...

Subject: RE: [WISPA] 900 Mhz Mikrotik SR9 Clients

Why can't I sell what I've built ?Because it doesn't brag on the
Alvarion name ?  Please.

As for growth path, I've got rooftop leases for these repeaters.
They're
legally guaranteed for 30 yrs in most cases.  Sheesh, in some cases, the
houses will fall down before the equipment dies.

I noticed that you pointed out the CX-BA-2.4-900 stuff.  That's all fine
and
good.   Oranges to Oranges, its WA more expensive to use Alvarion,
and
by $1000's.  CX 2.4/900 repeater is like $2,000 or more.  Same
functionality
with Mikrotik and Ubiquiti is around $500.  So, the way I see it, I can
put
4 repeaters up, and cover 4 times the area that I can with one CX
repeater.
AND, my tower side cost me $2,000 less as well!   So, $5,000 spent = 1
customer and repeater with tower side on Alvarion, or 9 customers with
repeaters and tower side with Mikrotik / Ubiquiti, AND I've got 9
repeaters
out there touching a ton more customers.

With Mikrotik, I've got firewalling / vpn / qos / bandwidth metering /
HOTSPOT / OSPF / WDS / and a routed network all the way to each
customer, OR
a bridged network if I should so choose.

Why would I have any less a path for growth or satisfactory exit in
putting
together Mikrotik solutions as opposed to Alvarion ?  
Cost of implementation's cheaper.
Cost of replacement's cheaper.
Cost of value added services are cheaper, AND implemented with only a
phone
call from the customer or even a hotspot implementation.
Future bandwidth's just there - no manufacturer throttling to pay to
upgrade like Alvarion
Mikrotik doesn't tell me what I can't do - they put it all there and let
you
decide.  No unlock extortion.

Actually, I just sold a chunk of my Pennsylvania network, that was still
in
a build-up phase, with tower sites installed and a couple customers, for
some cash that's going to run the rest of my network for a while.  Whole
thing was built on Canopy and Mikrotik tower sides and cpe's.  

Ya know, there IS one product I'll use religiously from Alvarion and
it's
the 2.4 DS11 backhaul units.  Rock solid, decently priced (on the used
market) and it's truly install-and-forget-it's-there stuff.

I just don't see the financial advantage to spending anything else on
Alvarion gear though.  Especially when I've got high speed backhauls,
short
and long distance backhauls, multiple frequency ranges, including
licensed
and public safety, LOS, NLOS and hotspot / billing / etc all built into
one
platform that doesn't cost a ton of money, and there's a lot of good
support
for.   

I don't see how that's bad business.

basing it on Mikrotik.  We're faster, not cheaper, and definitely 
better.  But without being able to push 5 meg to the customer, I 
couldn't offer those plans.

Doing that with anything but Mikrotik or PERHAPS tranzeo is costly or

802.11 gear is good for starting out, but it doesn't scale ... been 
there, done that.  Replaced 100's of 11b gear with Canopy, never looked 
back.  Let me say more, that was the turning point of growth on my
company..

Hi Patrick,

What basis do you have for the claim that an Alvarion network will

sell prices?

I put an AP up on a tower, and it interfered with a HAM radio guy.   Once I
moved it down on the tower 20 feet, the problem went away.  I put a 532

There is a HUGE problem with Mikrotik and FCC certification. The Mikrotik
532 puts out over 30db of constant noise in an area they should not be
(150MHz and 400MHz). It's still an issue, and has not been fixed or even

 Wow.  As I said in the first post, I have nothing bad to say about

 Plus, in the end the thing that I admit really gets me is that some 
 of these products simply are not legal at all and are illegally 
 shipped in from overseas. If we just blatantly flauted the laws we 
 could save tons in RD and legal too. It has always been 
 disappointing that some WISPs simply don't care about that.
 Especially when at the same time the same WISP might complain that 
 another WISP is over driving a system.

 This is a problem, but not so much of a problem as you make it out to 
 be.  I realize the law is black and white, but the reality is a 
 little more like shades of grey.  I'm not supporting anyone breaking 
 the law, but the truth of the matter is that there IS a difference 
 between operating a system that is not certified within legal limits 
 and operating a system that operates outside legal power limits.  The 
 primary difference is that one of these (you get to pick) will cause 
 more harm to the usability of the spectrum than the other.

 On another subject, take another look at the subject line...It's not 
 about Alvarion gear, but you seem to have stepped into the middle of 
 it (once again).  I really just wish you'd at least have the courtesy 
 to change the subject line if you are going to change the subject.

 You can't use just 1 battery. The APC units want to see 24vdc, so you need

 two batteries running in series.

 It works perfectly, as I have 20+ remote locations running off two gel 
 type batteries. Make sure you install some type of a fuse on the positive

 Tom,

 You're gonna bond 2 atlas links and get close to 100 Mb full

 How is that??
 The 200 Mb Exalt is 100 Mb TX /100 Mb RX

 If you use your  equation you really need 4 Trango radios which is 5 x
 $3000 = $15000 and that will give you 100 mb with 50/50 MIR.  Not to say 
 what you would use up in spectrum (20 Mhz. x 5 = 100 Mhz..OK...you 
 could play with polarity with good antennas and probably do better).

 So the Exalt doesn't look that expensive after all  :-)

 And BTW:  I was told to expect MIR control for asymetrical bandwidth
 soon...

 Tom DeReggi wrote:

 The advertised throughput on a 200 Mhz radio is 100 Mb true

 in each direction port to port. The radio throughput is based on a 64 
 Mhz channel.


 OK so lets compare to Trango Atlas or Alvarion Backhaul (which has
 similar metrics) with equivellent speed models. Taking that maybe only 1%

 of my market could pull off a 64Mhz channel.

 Exalt Specs... 200rating @ 64Mhz = 100 mbps then
 100rating @ 32Mhz = 50 mbps... @ $16,000 list.
This of course being best case based on noise
 level and acheivalbe modulation.

 Trango Specs 54rating @ 20Mhz = 45 mbps, for $3000.
 So, if I bonded two Atlas Links, I'd get equivelent performance to 
 the
 high performance version at 30% less spectrum use, and 1/5 th the cost.
 Now of Course Trango, is Ethernet only, and does not have the wayside T1 
 support or Fiber/GPS features. And there is value to that for someone 
 offering Voice services also.

 All I'm saying is that the street price sure better be a lot lower 
 than
 the list price listed, as you suggeset it is. The second you are in the 

 $15,000 range, you might as well be doing licensed for the extra $1000 
 bucks or two to make it survivable.

 Mhz..OK...you could play with polarity with good antennas and 
 probably do better).

 So the Exalt doesn't look that expensive after all  :-)

 And BTW:  I was told to expect MIR control for asymetrical bandwidth 
 soon...

 OK so lets compare to Trango Atlas or Alvarion Backhaul (which has 
 similar metrics) with equivellent speed models. Taking that maybe 
 only 1%

 of my market could pull off a 64Mhz channel.

 Exalt Specs... 200rating @ 64Mhz = 100 mbps then
 100rating @ 32Mhz = 50 mbps... @ $16,000 list.
This of course being best case based on noise 
 level and acheivalbe modulation.

 Trango Specs 54rating @ 20Mhz = 45 mbps, for $3000.
 So, if I bonded two Atlas Links, I'd get equivelent performance to
 the
 high performance version at 30% less spectrum use, and 1/5 th the cost.
 Now of Course Trango, is Ethernet only, and does not have the wayside T1 
 support or Fiber/GPS features. And there is value to that for someone 
 offering Voice services also.

 All I'm saying is that the street price sure better be a lot lower
 than
 the list price listed, as you suggeset it is. The second you are in the 

 $15,000 range, you might as well be doing licensed for the extra 
 $1000
 bucks or two to make it survivable.

 You can't use just 1 battery. The APC units want to see 24vdc, so 
 you need two batteries running in series.

 It works perfectly, as I have 20+ remote locations running off two

 Buy the sealed AGM style batteries (same style used in UPS systems).

 We are using AGM type (same thing used in UPS systems) big batteries

A few things to consider

The Exalt does the whole 5 Ghz. band, including 5.3 and 5.4

It also allows you to set the center channel on any 1 Mhz. division.

It has GPS syncing so you only need to use one channel for a handful of 
radios at the same site.  (Try doing that with Orthogon)

It is capable of elctronically switching polarities like the Trango 
radios do. (yeah,yeah...something like the Orthogon).

And finally...they are not owned by MOTOROLA!  :-)

FYI...I have installed approx. 11 Orthogon Spectra links.  I have had 
power supply failures 5 times.  I just waited 12 days for a replacement 
power supply after ordering it from the distributor.  The last link we 
ordered was missing part of the mounting bracket.  One of the mounting 
brackets did not have one of the holes tapped.  Not fun when you are 
onsite for an install.

I still like Orthogon.  I just like Exalt better.

Im only concern is on the channel size for big bandwidth.. 64 mhz is way too
much, on the side note the spectras 30 mhz dual polarity channel is very
flexible cause you can set one end to tx on one slice of spectrum, wheres
the other end can tx on other slice ... really handy in noisy areas ..

 A few things to consider 
 
 The Exalt does the whole 5 Ghz. band, including 5.3 and 5.4 
 
 It also allows you to set the center channel on any 1 Mhz. division. 
 
 It has GPS syncing so you only need to use one channel for a handful of 
 radios at the same site.  (Try doing that with Orthogon) 
 
 It is capable of elctronically switching polarities like the Trango 
 radios do. (yeah,yeah...something like the Orthogon). 
 
 And finally...they are not owned by MOTOROLA!  :-) 
 
 FYI...I have installed approx. 11 Orthogon Spectra links.  I have had 
 power supply failures 5 times.  I just waited 12 days for a replacement 
 power supply after ordering it from the distributor.  The last link we 
 ordered was missing part of the mounting bracket.  One of the mounting 
 brackets did not have one of the holes tapped.  Not fun when you are 
 onsite for an install. 
 
 I still like Orthogon.  I just like Exalt better.

No, but I'll see your question and raise you another question.

Anyone have any recommendations on (if this even exists) small managed 
or semi-managed switches? Basically, I just want to be able to graph 
traffic by port, and mybe shut off a given port, but you usually 
only find that in physically large (i.e. rackmount) switches. I want

 Peter R. wrote:
 Covad Communications Group Inc. announced it will acquire the assets
 of
 DataFlo Communications LLC, a Chicago-based broadband wireless provider, 
 adding a sixth market to its coverage area.

 Covad will acquire substantially all the assets of DataFlo for 
 approximately $1.4 million in cash. For the full 2006 year, DataFlo 
 expects to generate approximately $1 million in revenue. In keeping 
 with Covad's profitability goals, the transaction is EBITDA 
 accretive. The transaction is expected to close later this month 
 subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

 Covad already offers broadband wireless to Los Angeles, San Diego,
 San
 Francisco, Orange County and Las Vegas through its wireless subsidiary 
 NextWeb, which it acquired earlier this year.

 Speaking at the Internet Telephony Conference  Expo today, Claude 
 Tolbert, Covad's senior vice president of product solutions planning 
 and priorities, said the acquisition of NextWeb was primarily in 
 response to regulatory uncertainty over the company's access to 
 incumbent broadband networks. With that concern ameliorated, he said, 
 the DataFlo deal is more of a continuation of an overlay network 
 strategy.

 Broadband wireless allows the company to provide higher-capacity 
 services. It can offer 100mbps on unlicensed band and 10mbps on 
 licensed bands - speeds unavailable with DSL. Broadband wireless also 
 enables Covad to turn up services more quickly, reducing intervals 
 from 25 days for wireline to 10 days for wireless. It also enables 
 the company to serve clientele with temporary needs.

 Tolbert said the DataFlo network is pre-WiMAX and serves businesses
 via a
 direct sales force. This distribution strategy, he added, will help Covad

 to balance its predominantly wholesale focus.

Another quick question...

If you are running a Canopy Advantage AP and you use regular Canopy 
SM's, can the AP still deliver the 14Mbps of bandwidth, or will it be 
limited to 7Mbps (like the SM's)?

Trying to decide if I want to use Advantage SM's or just regular?

Well I have had 2.4ghz radio's link up at -89db (not very well mind 
you but...) so I don't know what to tell you other then Moto has 
traditionally understated there spec sheets.  The GPS is what sets the 
timing for the AP's.  The AP's coordinate the timing slots for all 
SM's registered to them.  So how it works is that all AP's on channel 
1 across the world all transmit at the same time, and all SM's synced 
to a AP on channel 1 with GPS timing from the AP listen at the same 
time.  Distance is not relevant unless you are utilizing the feature 
set of the SM to retransmit a GPS sync pulse that it receives from and 
AP to a BH or AP.  The lag that is introduced by having to transmit 
that pulse info across the wireless link to the SM retransmitting is 
the only time that distance can come into play.  The application this 
is used for is for a cheap repeater system so that you dont have to 
have a GPS synchronizing device at every tower.
/SM
GPS --AP#1 /
   \
 \SM (retransmitting GPS sync pulse) --AP#2 
--SM (retransmitting GPS sync pulse) --AP#3 (this AP will be out of 
sync with AP#1)

Basically the timing is measured in nano seconds so it takes to long 
for RF to transmit the data across the wireless links to continue to 
propagate the timing signal.  But if you put a GPS sync generating 
device at AP#3 it would be in perfect time with AP#1 and close enough 
timing with AP#2 that they all would get along.

One thing to keep in mind is if you are the only Canopy shop in the 
area you can have your AP's generate the sync pulse and avoid the cost 
of the GPS synchronizing items.  Also again as for the distance 
statement.  6 AP's in a cluster sharing 3 channels have to be synced.  
believe me the messy antenna on the Canopy units dont have a good 
enough F/B ratio to not hear another AP 6 away from it.  The two AP's 
that are back to back share the same channel so that when they 
transmit the SM's that are listening are as far away from each other 
as possible and thus reduce any chance of talking over each other.  
The largest benefit that GPS sync allows is to add additional capacity 
to area's by allowing for more towers to be in a smaller area without 
self interference.  If long range rural deployments are the plan then 
GPS sync will only benefit you if you have competitors utilizing the 
same equipment and configuration in the area.  So a Moto advantage 
cluster has about 84mb total (Classic Canopy would be 42mb) FTP 
bandwidth available to it.  If more is needed you can place the towers 
with in a few miles and divide a cell into two micro cells each with a 
possible 84mb of total bandwidth for a total of 168mb serviced to a 
given area. One last note, GPS timing will not allow for two separate 
clusters of the same type ( two 2.4ghz clusters) to be on the same 
tower.  I can't write out whats in my head on this getting a 
little late in the night but if you wanted to I could talk to you over 
the phone and explain it.  Send me an email to anthonyw (at) 
broadband-mn.com and Ill give you my cell phone number or give you a

What happens when you have more than 3 towers outside of the 8 mile 
range of GPS sync? The 2.4ghz signal will definately travel that far, 
causing self-interference, correct?

With the Advantage AP's and legacy SM's you get the Latency, and High

To answer your question, yes the Advantage AP will deliver the full 14Mb

Another quick question...

If you are running a Canopy Advantage AP and you use regular Canopy 
SM's, can the AP still deliver the 14Mbps of bandwidth, or will it be 
limited to 7Mbps (like the SM's)?

Jon,

Why is that the case? You really think GPS on Canopy is some cool
feature? Canopy must have GPS to function. Without it, it kills itself.
It is all to prevent self-inflicted interference (remember, Canopy does
not even have ATPC) and to allow for channel re-use. Other systems, like
VL, do not need it. It provides far more capacity than Canopy, so it
does not need to re-use channels and with basic channel planning you
don't have issues with self-interference.

Patrick,



Rssi is very important to determine if a link is properly aligned and
its achieving its link budget.



Altough we dont use alvarion(yet), we are currently researching
backhaul options and the way we comission ptp links here is that we run the
calcs on radio mobile and spreedsheet to determine the link budget in advance
to implementation. Snr wont help much there...

 Brad,

 

 Software controlled dual polarity might be nice. Not
sure why you

 consistently harp on us though since no one else has
it either other

 than your longtime preferred vendor.

 

 I am not as convinced about your complaint about
RSSI. Is it just used

 to RSSI like being used to feet in stead of meters.
But also, isn't RSSI

 less sophisticated and a less useful number than SNR
since it is only an

 indication of receive signal without discounting noise?
SNR provides a

 more accurate representation of wanted signal since
it discounts for

 unwanted noise.

 

 Not sure of your complaint about the RJ45. No one
else remarks about it

 and we don't have issues with water intrusion. In
other words, it works

 well. If the opening was enlarged you increase the
potential for water

 intrusion.

 

 Following the color code? Yes, as an old cabling
guy, I would agree. But

 I am pleased to note that one is really running out
of things to harp

 about when one continually highlights this a major
deficiency.

 

 So now that I have responded here to your public
mail, will you please

 admit that even if the VL came to life and saved
your kid from a flood

 you complain that it was not fast enough and that it
ripped the kid's

 clothes. I wish some day you'd accept that your
customer chose VL and

 you should take the opportunity to learn about it
instead of still

 trying to make it fail so you can get them to switch

The prices you state seem way low.  I've only see nthat on temporar or Ebay

Is their a CONSISTENT source for $225 and $550 pricing in less than 25 qty?

I believe that anyone that is required to buy in qty higher than 25 to get 
best price is getting overly burdened and likely loosing their savings after

looking at all cash flow costs.

 Hi,

 I changed the subject line to reflect more the direction of this
 discussion (Trango vs. Canopy vs. Alvarion)... ;)

 This is just off the top of my head, and I would love to see more data
 on any of these radios:

 Trango 5830AP - $1,079 retail
 Dual polarity
 10Mbps (auto up/down ratio)
 Easy management (CLI and web)
 $149 CPE ($199 up to 10 miles)

 Canopy 5.7 AP - $970 (Advantage $1,974)
 C/I advantage
 Fixed up/down ratio
 $490 CPE ($737 advantage)

 Alvarion VL AP - $4,500 (rough retail)
 36Mbps and 40,000pps
 $1,000 CPE

 For whatever it's worth, we have over 2,500 CPE in the air and over
 2,000 are Trango (900mhz, 2.4ghz, 5.8ghz). The Trango product has worked
 very well for us, and we are located on some mountaintop repeater
 locations that literally have over 100 antennas (paging, HAM, WISPs,
 etc.) within 100 yards of each other.

 Our biggest problem is frequency availability at all (regardless of
 radio choice)... we have a 2.4ghz AP at a repeater station that is
 full. We attempted to install a second sector today and ran a site
 survey at this location across the entire 2.4ghz band, the average
 signals ranged from -25 to -55 at the best. :(

 ARQ does not affect C/I like FEC does for example. When you say ARQ is
 fixing any resiliance problems that may be true. But you'll also
 suffer from increased latency and less throughput during those
 retransmissions. Not good if you want to support VOIP and keep
 customers happy. Having a low C/I means the system will be stable more
 often and maintain a lower retrans. Trango's ARQ is not even an option
 in the 5800 model which is what you and I probably have a decent
 percentage of in our Trango networks. Having a low C/I requirement
 affects other things like increases the range of a product. I'm laying
 out facts, you can convince yourself of whatever you want...

Trango Atlas CPE with dish  $250?
Canopy with dish $275

Canopy Advantage Cluster:
6 Ap's @ $1500 each = $9k (you can start your pop with a fcc certified omni
unit for $2.7k and evolve to a full sector later)
CMM Micro for Power and Sync = $1.5k *optional
BAM - Prizm = $2k *optional

The CMM Micro is optional component for GPS Sync, you can achieve sync among
the cluster with 10 ft of cat 5 and 6 rj11 connectors

BAM - Prizm is a NMS for Management but is NOT a required component, you can
manage all your settings from the web interface on each unit including
bandwidth and such.  I would only recommend the Prizm NMS for big WISP's
(200+ units )

About the Third Party:

There are a couple on 3rd party improvements for canopy, almost all were
created on a cost savings stand point, Example:

Motorola reflector dish for 10 mile + links $100
Beehive Wireless reflector dish for 10 mile links $49.95 (fcc certified)

Motorola CMM GPS Sync System $1.5k
PacketFLux GPS Sync $300

Any other questions ?

So what is the onesy-twosy price of a Trango Atlas with an extended

extended range? I have plenty of data I've found, but there seems to be
some wide discrepancy here among you folks.

How about total cost for a Canopy cluster with the BAM, GPS synch, and
other little extra things you need for it to be complete?

Also, I've heard a number of you talk about availability of third party
improvements like it is a benefit of the Canopy system. Seriously, isn't
that more a reflection of the glaring gaps in Canopy that have led smart
WISP entrepreneurs to capitalize?

WE provide Symetrical Business service with Canopy, why you couldn't ?

A Regular AP has 7 Mbps if you split 75/25 that translates to : 5.25 / 1.75

Why can you sell a 512/512 over that type of AP split ?

We use Advantage and have 10/4 MBps of capacity.  My biggest Symetrical Plan

The biggest reason we use Trango is because we sell our wireless service 
as symmetrical. Even on the residential level, if they purchase 512k 
they get 512k down and 512k up. So, if I use Canopy, I have to do a 
50/50 split, which means even the Advantage product only provides 7Mbps 
of usable bandwidth.

I would estimate 15% of our new signups for wireless are because of the 
symmetrical speed (even though 99% of them never use it). Another 15% 
comes from offering a real static IP address.

 Of course you can also just string sync cables between radios for free.

 True, but this is truly what makes canopy works and you have nice 3rd 
 party
 options like www.lastmilegear.com and www.packetflux.com for the gps 
 sync
 units that start @ less than $300 for a 4 port Sync unit

   

 Thanks for the reference to third party sync devices. I am not at all 
 happy with the CMM. I looked at the devices from the respective 
 vendors you shared. While they do look more in line with our needs 
 than the CMM I was wondering if you have seen any third party sync 
 devices that are rack mount and can handle 10+ radios. In fact, 
 handling 24 radios would be awesome for us.

As much as I've protested Canopy, (in my mind poor design), the smaller the 
gaps are getting.
The problem is that Trango kept degrading their gear more and more like 
Canopy. And Canopy kept improving their gear.
Trango still wins, because Trango is less expensive.
Canopy still has some of the traits that I also don't like about Trango 
(darn DSS dish antennas).

My goal is to gain the High Arpu business.  Who the winner will be is not a 
dying breed product, but the manufacturer that steps up to the plate to 
deliver a complete product.
I want to be done with half-assed antennas.   What I've learned is that the 
ANTENNA IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE RADIO.

Trango's strength had always been their internal antennas and options for 
good external ones.

On a side note, Does Canopy 5.8G CPEs have external connectors?

The truth is, I want the cheap CPE antenna option, for half my installs, 
cause it saves me money and thats all I need to do the job. I just don't 
want to give up the flexibilty to optimize reliabitly for the other 50%.

The other thing you forget is, I'd now rather fight it out, and stay put on 
the channel, doesn't mean that I will win.  With Trango, I still have the 
option to change my mind, when somebody beats me up, and I need to go run to

another channel or polarity. Its always good to have a backup plan.

better to claim the space and say, I'm here first, go find another

is this MRSP ? you can buy this the AP for $800 +/- , Advantage for $1500

#C/I advantage
#Fixed up/down ratio

Add GPS Sync, Feature rich firmware, NMS Software, Strong support, Good

Hi,

I changed the subject line to reflect more the direction of this 
discussion (Trango vs. Canopy vs. Alvarion)... ;)

This is just off the top of my head, and I would love to see more data 
on any of these radios:

Trango 5830AP - $1,079 retail
Dual polarity
10Mbps (auto up/down ratio)
Easy management (CLI and web)
$149 CPE ($199 up to 10 miles)

Canopy 5.7 AP - $970 (Advantage $1,974)
C/I advantage
Fixed up/down ratio
$490 CPE ($737 advantage)

Alvarion VL AP - $4,500 (rough retail)
36Mbps and 40,000pps
$1,000 CPE

For whatever it's worth, we have over 2,500 CPE in the air and over 
2,000 are Trango (900mhz, 2.4ghz, 5.8ghz). The Trango product has worked 
very well for us, and we are located on some mountaintop repeater 
locations that literally have over 100 antennas (paging, HAM, WISPs, 
etc.) within 100 yards of each other.

Our biggest problem is frequency availability at all (regardless of 
radio choice)... we have a 2.4ghz AP at a repeater station that is 
full. We attempted to install a second sector today and ran a site 
survey at this location across the entire 2.4ghz band, the average 
signals ranged from -25 to -55 at the best. :(

 Tom, I have nothing to gain or lose by telling you what we've not only

 that there isn't a good product and struggle when their actually is a 
 pretty darn good one...and on top of that has an upgrade path in it's 
 vision, it keeps getting better.

 ARQ does not affect C/I like FEC does for example. When you say ARQ is 
 fixing any resiliance problems that may be true. But you'll also 
 suffer from increased latency and less throughput during those 
 retransmissions. Not good if you want to support VOIP and keep 
 customers happy. Having a low C/I means the system will be stable more 
 often and maintain a lower retrans. Trango's ARQ is not even an option 
 in the 5800 model which is what you and I probably have a decent 
 percentage of in our Trango networks. Having a low C/I requirement 
 affects other things like increases the range of a product. I'm laying 
 out facts, you can convince yourself of whatever you want...

 Nice try, but I've found that comment to be not at all true. I have 
 often chosen to avoid canopy user's channels, but because I am a good 
 WISP neighbor, not because I had to.  Why fight if you can 
 cooperate.  On a SPEC sheet Canopy does boast the lowest C/I.  But 
 Trango's specified C/I was reported before considering ARQ. And 
 Trango has always underspec'd their spec sheets.  C/I is not nearly 
 as relevant as SNR resilience anyway. With Arq, we've easilly ran 
 links as low as 4 db above the average noise floor, reliably.  There 
 is VERY little difference between the Trango and Canopy C/I in real 
 world usage.  The Trango just adds more polarities as more options to 
 work around it, when needed.  One of the reasons we like Trango is 
 its resilience to noise, that gives us the abilty to fight it out and 
 stand our ground.  The Foxes w/ DISH, have excellent ARQ and 
 resilience to Noise, within their range and LOS.

 When we start to have trouble with Trango, is when we start to push 
 the limits of the technology.  Its a LOS technology that we attempt 
 NLOS with. My arguement is also not that we can't be the last man 
 standing. Its that when the battle happens the customer sees it, and 
 the customer does not tolerate it.  IF a Canopy and Trango went to 
 war, one might survive a little better than the other, but ultimately 
 both customers would feel the interference the majority of the time.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] Alvarion VL Fixes Problems with Backhaul Links

Because, over the years I lost 100% of my high ARPU subs that used 5830-ext 
in these areas. Yes that REALLY hurt the financials of my business.  The 
reason, is that its a high noise environment where we're attempting to 
deploy, and its impossible to offer zero packet loss solutions with TDD 
unless ARQ is available, in these situations.  It makes it worse with all 
the WiFi gear going up, because you don;t know its there half the time, 
until its starts transmiting. (darn I hate contention based). Yes, of 
course, Beta ARQ firmware exists for the 5830-ext, but it can't be used 
reliably.  One of the big mistakes I made is I tried to use it, and learned 
that it locks up the SU radios every couple of days, when under heavy load. 
I did my testing of it on about 10 links. I started on 4 low use links, and 
it appeared to be stable, with only a random lockup every couple of weeks 
that I thought was something else. But after I installed it on the high 
volume links (other 6), they started locking up like crazy. (yes used most 
recent supposedly fixed firmware). Auto-Reboot devices causing two minutes 
of downtime for a reboot, is not adequate for High ARPU large office T1s and

VOIP services. I'd rather not have the business, than to get my reputation 
tarnished by installing links the subscriber ends up cancelling and 
complaining about.  Evey T1 that gets cancelled means there is a MTU 
property owner involved that got the word (they make the referals) and a 
trusted advisor Computer guy (agents that give stamp of approval) that gets 
scared off, when they learn about the failure. Deals with partners that took

months to build get thrown away over night, with a couple reboots from buggy

ARQ firmware.

What you can't forget is that in PtMP, you can't encrease the antenna side 
of the AP. Not everything can be solved with the big antenna on SU side. 
Without ARQ one is toast.

Trango gave me so much hope when they developed ARQ for the 5800 Foxes, 
which works fantastically. I'd select the Fox over a 5830-ext any day 
because of ARQ. But thats not good enough, I need ARQ and EXT connectors. 
Last year,  I made Trango aware that we needed ARQ on 5830-EXT and Link-10s 
more than anything, and a year later, we still don't have it, and its not on

their priority list.  That is frustrating for my business.  Customers don't 
wait in Urban Tier1 markets.  When the Link doesn't go up in a few days, or 
their were a couple of noise issues that scare them, they have already 
placed their order with someone else.

What it has forced me to do, is slowly start swapping out my Trango APs, to 
make room (spectrum and antenna lease fees) for radios that can deliver 
packetlossless links.  Even Wifi gear can offer packetlossless links.  And 
its forced me to go back and re-negotiate my contracts with property owners 
to try and not pay per antenna, so I can get more antennas of larger size 
(PtP) for less money on the roofs.  Its a BIG waste of time, that I wouldn't

have to do, if Trango added ARQ reliable ARQ to 5830-ext.

I'm still a Big Trango fan, and still am basing my business around its 
product, because of its value proposition, but I am loosing sales and 
getting more black eyes than I have to, because Trango does not have a EXT 
antenna product line that delivers reliable ARQ.  I haven't bought a new 
Trango 5830 AP in ages, I have to many pulls on the shelf waiting, when I 
need one.  If Trango never released ARQ for the FOX, I would have never kown

what I was missing. But now that I have experienced it, I can't live without

it.

The two biggest reasons, for lack of progress in my company is, 1) Waiting 
for technology, and 2) Waiting for finance to come through.  I can't count 
how much money I burned just waiting.  I don't want to wait any more. I'm 
tired of waiting. I don't have the energy to keep waiting. I want it now.  I

need it now.  This is a time to market business, where there is a domino 
effect of disaster tied to waiting.

So when a company like Alvarion or Valemont come out with a product that 
will do the job, and I no longer have to wait, I see no reason to wait.

Northrop to provide wireless public safety net for NYC

BY Bob Brewin
Published on Sept. 12, 2006

New York City has awarded Northrop Grumman a $500 million contract to 
develop a broadband wireless network, which the city characterized as 
the most aggressive commitment by any municipality to provide a 
next-generation public safety network.

The New York Citywide Mobile Wireless Network (CMWN) will provide the 
New York Police Department, Fire Department, Transportation Department, 
Office of Emergency Management and other agencies with a high-speed 
network capable of handling a variety of broadband data including 
federal and state anti-crime and anti-terrorism, fingerprint, mug shot 
and city map databases, and full-motion streaming video, the city said.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the new network will help fill in the 
communications gaps that occurred as emergency workers grappled five 
years ago with the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center. 
One of the most important lessons learned from the Sept. 11 attacks was 
that our emergency responders need better access to information and 
clearer lines of communication in the field, Bloomberg said.

CMWN will ensure that public safety workers will have the tools they 
need to fight crime and help in emergencies, Bloomberg said. It will 
also improve efficiency and productivity in nonemergency situations by 
streamlining communications and improving service, he added.

The city said it expects Northrop Grumman will turn the network on in 
Lower Manhattan by January 2007, with citywide deployment planned by 
spring 2008. The city has an option to extend the contract for 10 years.

The company said it selected IPWireless to provide its Universal Mobile 
Telecommunications System equipment used by commercial cellular carriers 
for CMWN. The gear can provide mobile users with broadband data service 
at speeds up to 16M per second, according to a fact sheet on the 
company's Web site.

Lori Horton, director of strategic wireless initiatives at Northrop 
Grumman, said CMWN will provide users with data rates of 2M per second 
in a vehicle moving 60 miles per hour. The company demonstrated in a 
test earlier this year in Lower Manhattan that it can provide such data 
rates to vehicles moving at 120 mph, she added.

A unique feature of the network will address concerns raised by top 
commanders' inability to communicate in the aftermath of the terrorist 
attacks, Horton said. It will give priority to incident scene commanders 
so they get the bandwidth they need when they need it, she said.

The city said the high data rates provided by CMWN will allow the NYPD 
and FDNY to deploy new applications to workers in the field. The network 
will enable police officers to access real-time photo, warrant and 
license plate databases.

The network will enable FDNY to establish reliable wireless connectivity 
between the Fire Operations Center and responders in the field to 
transmit on-scene data and video, the city said. New York will work to 
provide network access to state and federal public safety agencies.

The city said it plans to use CMWN support a number of nonemergency 
applications that will provide a significant improvement over existing 
technology for city workers in the field. For example, it will include 
remote water meter reading technology for the Environmental Protection 
Department, which will reduce costs associated with conventional methods 
of meter reading.

The city said its DOT will use the network to expand its ability to 
remotely monitor and program traffic signal controls daily and during 
emergencies.

When New York released the CMWN bid request in 2004, it attracted 
interest from bidders including EDS, IBM, Lucent and Lockheed Martin.

Next it'll be used in a town that's got someone (they think kids) taking

the street and set up a sting.

This one has good resolution, a zoom lens, built in web server, audio and 
video, built in motion sensor (though it will false alarm in the dark), 
ethernet AND wireless.  I paid about $500 for it.  It's WELL worth the 
price.  I have a $150 dlink cam too.  It's got a decent picture but I never 
was able to get the dang thing to send pics to a server off site.  I ended 
up just giving it away.  The Inscape ones can be had with an outdoor

When I get it back I can set it up so you can view it if you'd like.

Lonnie is famous for hijacking threads

Regardless of the original thread topic, I'd argue that...

The goal is to find a manufacturer that can deliver what we need, the 
complete solution, at the price we need. If someone can do that, there is 
not much more to find out, in my mind. Its not about who is better, its who 
can deliver, because WISPs are starving for solutions.  When I think about 
it, until just recently, I have been using the same product that I selected 
as best for me 5 years ago and there are two reasons for it. 1) Loyalty to 
vendor  and 2) there is lots of advancement, but not enough of a value to 
justify change.  A great OS does nothing if it can;t run on adequate 
hardware, and adequate hardware can't do much without adequate software.

I am exstatic to hear about what Lonnie has accomplished with his new War/V3

solution.  To my recognition, he is the first to deliver a complete low cost

solution to meet todays ISP's backhaul needs. (that means he's listening to 
WISPs).  It delivers low cost, total link w/ antennas, radios, cases, etc, 
under $1000, it allows us to transparently bridge without compromising MTU 
delivery, and it will pass 35 mbps, adeqaute speed for backhauling a 6 six 
sector cell site.  First, a product must meet the need of the solution. 
Every other component of the OS's I feel are almost pointless, or just value

add to help tip the scale.  A 12-20 mbps solution is just not enough.

I'm not saying there are not other vendors with adeqaute solutions, nor that

the other products don't have valueable features for other solutions. But 
War/V3 might have been the first to deliver all three needs in a PTP (also 
possibly PtMP sectors, but thats a different discussion with different 
things to compare.). For that recognition is due, and I commend him.

 11MByte/sec as in approx 88Mbps?  Sounds about like NStreme Turbo (40MHz

 Considering this thread was originally about the RB532 and its

 Tom,

 The new V3 release has been posted and you can set MTU to very high
 values if your cards support jumbo frames.  Our WAR board, with its
 very advanced Intel Ethernet can do 16K for the MTU.  Most other cards

 have limits in the 2K to 4K range.

 We also have released the first x86 PC Architecture version and the
 updated x86 WRAP version.  They  have the same features as the WAR
 version.

 I'm not sure if we mentioned it but the x86 version has a free mode
 that is no longer a 24 hour trial.  It saves settings and everything
 works, except of course the advanced features that we use to add
 value.  You can use it for fairly advance routing (quagga has ospf and
 rip) for free.

 We'll require a paid license for wireless, policy or source routing,
 bandwidth control and our firewall scripting.  We are pretty sure that

 more than 11 MBytes/sec in Turbo mode on a power machine will meet
 with approval.  Device bonding will be coming fairly soon and it will
 allow simple hdx bonding, fdx bonding and failover bonding.

 We use the Linux 2.6 kernel and we have been able to get this image to

 well under 8 MB and average ram use on bootup is about 16 MB.  It took

It will just be easier to support an insane MTU size so that people
can go and do whatever they want.  I can imagine people doing some
vlan in vlan and then running the whole works over a tunnel, and each
one adds tags and headers to the actual 1500 byte payload.

 Lonnie,

 I just wrote to you off list, before seeing your onlist response.

 V3 has support for a fully transparent
  client bridge when it talks to an appropriately configured V3 AP system.

 That is good news!

  License Fee after 1 year.

 The policy you explained, is fair and reasonable.

  We are currently working on a custom MTU size interface for every
  device to be able to handle whatever you want for MTU size.

 Great.  To be more clear... Its easy for people (like me) to get confused
 between IP versus Ethernet headers. In our VLAN applications, its the
 Ethernet packet that needs to be supported above 1500bytes (for addition
of
 VLAN to Ethernet header), we'd rarely ever need to increase IP packet MTU
 above 1500 MTU. (although I see applications for IPSEC if larger MTU
allowed
 or possibly for passing MPLS).

2006-08-12 Thread Gino A. Villarini








Well Tom,



We are in the same situation as you,
testing backhaul replacements. Our Network backhauls are made of : Spectras
, Gemini, Trango Atlas, Motorola BH units and Proxim MP11a. So we started
looking for a 802.11a based unit, config channels of 5,10,20 and 40 mhz,
support for bridging and basic stuff needed for backhauls no fancy stuff. The
are some products available like the Trango Atlas, Solectek among others but we
decided to test Mikrotik RB500 units, we saw the same results as you did, not
very amazed. But, last week I decided to test out StarOS WAR plataform
and let me tell you:



6 mile link with 533 mhz WAR Board with 1 CM9
card each on both sides 23 db flat panel ( -66 on both ends ) One End connected
to a Mikrotik 2.8 ghz Router , my laptop at the other end WAR board set
on bridge mode, connection tracking disabled.



First of all, latency :



1- 64 byte ping from my laptop to the Mikrotik router : 1ms

2- 1500 byte ping from my laptop to the Mikrotik router : 2  3 ms



Nice, thoughput :



20 mhz channel:



TCP : 35 Mbps

UDP: 28 Mbps ( weird, usually is the
opposite )



40 mhz channel:



TCP : 45 Mbps

UDP: 72 Mbps 



For Paul:



20 mhz chanel UDP test with 100 byte
packets : 5 Mbps

40 mhz chanel UDP test with 100 byte
packets : 6 Mbps







Pretty darn exiting results! I just need
to iron out a vlan issue with Lonnie.. and I would make this units our defacto

Task: Test Max Speed doable using Mikrotik NStreme 2
(two MPCI cards in one board).











test environment...











AMD 3Ghz Laptop wired - Mikrotik 532 w/ CM9 -
Mikrotik 532 w/CM9 - wired to HP PIII-800Mhz Laptop.





Connected in a lab environment, zero noise.











Mikrotik OS ver 2.9.28











Test software 1: IPerf TCP running on both Laptops.





Test software 2: Mikrotik Bandwidth test running on
Mikrotiks.











TestMethod 1 (running test to/fromLaptops):
used about 80% CPU power on Mikrotik board to pass the traffic.











Test Method 2 (running to.from MIkrotik): used about
100% CPU power on Mikrotik.











However, interesting enough, the results of the speed
tests, whichever method used, were just about identical, give or take 1 mbps.











The results of tests were











Maximum speed transferable in one direction 20Mhz
channel: 16.6 mbps.





Maximum speed transferable in both direction
simultaneously (addingtogether the values) 20.8 mbps (13.8 mbps and 7 mbps
in the other).





Maximum speed transferable in one direction 10 mhz
channel: 15.8 mbps.





Maximum speed transferable in both directions 10 Mhz
channel: 19 mbps (10.4 mbps and 9 mbps)





Maximum speed transferable in one direction Turbo
Mode speed: 18 mbps





Maximum speed transferable in both
directionsimultaneously Turbo Mode (addingtogether the values):
22mbps.











Note: Turbo mode tested in two configurations, (A)
the lowest 5.8G channel send and highest 5.8G channel for receive, and(B)
5.8Ghz to send and 5.3Ghz receive.





Note: All 5.8Ghz test resultswere at54
mbps speed modulation, and setting it to slower speed/modulation lowered the
test speed results.





Note: Test performed with RSSI somewhere between -60
and-68, without antennas, but w/ high quality pigtails w/Bulk head N,
Pointing N connectors to each other.





Note:Re-tried tests with antennas used, to
increase RSSI (-50 to -60 db), but itdid not improve results.





Note: All tests done when in NStreme2 mode, using
twocards on each end. 





Note: Both boards mounted in Mikrotik Plastic Large
Case (sweet cases) and using 18V (.8amp) via POE.











One thing that was really odd...Mikrotik
has a value for TX rssi and RXrssi. The TXrssi was the exact RX
rssi acheivedat the otehr radio in all cases in any slot, in any
configuration. 





However,the CM9 inthe TOP Slot of
the532board consistently showed an average of 10 db worse TX RSSI.
(sometimes around -75 db). Swapping TX CM9s did not help. TX from the top
slot oneither of the Mikrotik CPEs showed the same results.The
only way I was able to make the TX rssis the same on both CPEs simultaneously
was to set the BOTTOM port/CM9 on each Mikrotik to be the TX radio. This
indicated that the 532 board possibly might have a powerproblem to the
top slot. In this configuration, at 54mbps, RSSI was about -65TX
and RX on bothCPEs.











My conclusion of this experimentwas that the
ideal configuration for a MIkrotik 532 board is with10Mhz channels in
NStreme2 mode.





Because Spectrum efficiency is maximized, Interference
avoidance maximized, Cost low, and very little aggregate speed
benefitacheived by using the larger channel sizes

 Hosted telephony services provider Optivon Inc. recently announced its 
 multi-year outsourcing agreement with Sago Networks, which coincides 
 with its North American expansion and focus on the carrier channel.

 Optivon will provide hosted telephony services to Sago, including IP 
 Trunking, IP Telephony - residential and business, IP Centrex/PBX 
 Hosting, CTI informal call center, unified communications, local and 
 long-distance telephone service, billing services, backroom operations 
 services, as well as other hosted applications that Optivon will 
 periodically add to the its suite of services, the company said.

 Sago will bundle Optivon services with other Sago services and will be 
 delivering the IP-based voice services over its private microwave and 
 fiber circuits to the customer premises. The company said it will not 
 be using the public Internet to access the customers and will be able 
 to guarantee optimal quality of service.

 Quality of service is our foremost concern, said Miller Cooper, 
 president of Sago Networks. Therefore, after an extensive national 
 evaluation process we selected to team up with Optivon to launch our 
 voice services.
