Re: [WISPA] Leasing Companies

2010-06-05 Thread Joe Laura
If you have a good business plan your probably better off dealing with a 
local bank IMO. If you cant convince the bank your business plan is good 
then something might be wrong with your business plan. We do out of pocket 
now but several years ago after showing the bank our business plan they gave 
me whatever I wanted as long as I showed them my MRC. Joe Laura

 StarOS used to have a utility called starutil if I recall correctly.

 have not used StarOS in MANY years, so I don't know if this is even

firing up their own A/P's others would connect to them and cancel service.

 Hi Boys and Girls

 If anyone has a solution they are using to monitor Proxim 5054 radios
other
 than Proxim Vision please let me know.

 I am looking to monitor RSL, uptime, and anything else without choking the
 crap out of my networks.

 I know I had talked with someone from one of the lists before but lost
that
 info.

 I am looking for a system that is doing this.  Not a system that SHOULD
do
 it.  Worked with enough of those already.  :-)

 Tnx.

 Offlist if you want.

 What I'm trying to do is not use an expensive high quality ip cams. A
 couple years ago I did a cam job using a Sony. When I was researching
 the project I talked to a guy that does cams for a living.

 He said, for the money you spend on an ip cam, you could get a lot of
 non ip cams.

 I don't know very much about cameras, figured there is some experts here
 on the list that can help educate me-us.

 Our tower crews are allowed to pick and choose what they like for
 Harness and Lanyards as long as it's approved by our safety manager.
 They all choose the exofit harness by DBSALA with the seat.  I prefer
 this one as well.  The new ones have a spring in the that makes the rear
 ring stick up,  very nice.

 He is in a hospital in Monroe tonight, but going to LSU at Shreveport
 tomorrow for further testing.  If he settles in someplace we will let

Re: [WISPA] Canopy NMS

2008-12-28 Thread Joe Laura
It does it automatic. You just put in the ip space. There is a feature that
does this. It also grabs the name from each canopy and lists that as well.
Its a pretty cool program. I have about 150 radios being graphed.

 Joe,

 The White Spaces are the unused television channels. In most major metro
 areas, many of the channels are in use by television broadcasters and
 other licensed users. Outside of major metro areas, there will be unused
 channels available that you can use. In general, the more rural you are,
 the more channels will be available.

Thanks to all of the offers for help! Its really appreciated! After getting
generators up and running I only had to change one backhaul antenna and all
seems well so far. I can see power comming up in different areas as clients
come online. What helped alot was having a pass to get on the rooftops as
soon as the hurricane passed. We did not have this for the last hurricane
and it really slowed things down. Thanks to homeland security for taking

 Mac,

 I could not have said it any better. It has been a long 3 years for me and
my family. While my company and a group of volunteers worked hard to get the
Misissippi gulf coast Internet and VoIP phones, a lot of people never knew
that I too lost everything in Katrina except what we could carry in our
vehicles. I do not think that I can rebuild my home again.

 I cannot say enough about the volunteers that were here to help after
Katrina. Some people of whom their names I may have forgot, but I will never
forget their faces. They worked damn near around the clock for weeks on end,
without any complaints.

 I've spent the last week trying to harden my system here. It will be made
available to any group that may need it. I owe a lot to WISPA and to
Part-15. I'm pretty sure that Joe Laura in New Orleans feels the same way.
We have to work together to get things back up as soon as possible. Although
it is tracking to south west Lousiana, it is still too far out the detimine
where the eye will hit land. We just have to be prepared no matter where it
hits. This storm is getting large enough to do a lot of damage to a lot of
areas.

 As I sit here in south Mississippi, I will be praying that people make the
right decision and get out of harms way. There is no reason why we should
have any loss of life. They know a storm is approaching.

 I will keep this list updated on how things are progressing on the MS gulf
coast.

 Best Regards and God Speed,

 DSLbyAir

 Kurt - you got off WAY CHEAP.. The company asking is buying new steel
 and you shouldn't have someone that isn't experienced with putting up
 200ft towers on the job-site

 Typical pricing for a tower installation of ANY height is $60-$90 per
foot.
 That does not include foundation costs That includes the tower crew
 showing up and installing the tower.

 If anyone out there is able to get the brother-in-law deals you got...

  We are installing a tower (super titian sc 100 200 foot) in east

  We

Re: [WISPA] Man fined for stealing WiFi

2007-05-28 Thread Joe Laura
I wonder if they had an acceptance page or not. If the network is wide open
without an acceptance page who says where it is comming from? Around here if
you walk in a coffee shop and seartch usually you can pull up several
networks. I know some coffee shops that ssid is default. I use MT hotspots
at mine and the customers have to at least get a user/pass to use them. A
local coffee shop here recently opened and the reciept had the wep settings
printed on it. They would change keys every week. Customers complained about
having to use keys so after three weeks they just leave it wide open now.

 One of our salespeople got a call today from ATT that I feel I must share
 and see if others are getting similar calls.



 The ATT rep told our saleperson that he was looking for temporary (2 day
 service) to various locations that do not have access to cable/DSL or
fiber.
 They need these connections for conference call meetings and will need our
 company to set up a wireless router at the location as well.  He needs
these
 connections done in as short as a 3-4 day window.



 Has anyone else had similar calls?  Not sure if they are just fishing for

 Fix your system and get the customers back online WHILE trying to get

 is what I would do:

 Order an h-pol omni Monday and have it shipped overnight.
 Start changing customers Monday morning to h-pol. Should be able to do
 20 per day per tech.
 Contact an attorney and have a letter delivered to the Walmart manager
 Monday afternoon.
 Install the h-pol antenna Tuesday and continue switching customers.
 Have another letter delivered to Walmart corporate. Realize that once it
 hits their legal dept. you are probably 2-4 weeks for any type of a
 response.
 Credit customers for the downtime (pro-rated based on 30 days per
 month). This just helps your PR.
 Issue a press release to your local newspaper about the problem and how
 you were able to respond so quickly and get the problem fixed, even when
 Walmart did not want to cooperate.

 3) How many installations per month / week / day ?

 4) How did they find you ?  Advertising methods...


 I'm in the middle of rebuilding my company from the disaster it's been in

Re: [WISPA] SF Earthlink Study

2007-01-17 Thread Joe Laura
IMO the only thing that will make earthlink really have a chance of being
profitable in the wi-fi arena  is if they are able to sell city government
and/or business services. I think New Orleans is using the earthlink service
for the city camera project but I am not sure if they are charging a fee for
this or not. I could come up with some really neat ideas to sell service off
of the earthlink network but the coverage just is not there IMO. They are
offering a indoor CPE with a service commitment but in many cases a indoor
CPE is not going to get  clients a reliable connection. Testing from my van
in some areas I get a great signal and then it just drops to nothing. I do
see alot of tropos units with no ssid's and I am not sure whats up with
that. Maybe thats for the cameras.

Message: 12
Date: Mon, 15 Jan 2007 17:40:53 -0500
From: Ralph [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Numbering my responses to Kimo's questions:


1. Right now, a handful of cities (I think they are the 3 Metro-Fi cities in
Silicon Valley, plus Mtn View) are getting 1Mb. This is totally dependent of
the depth of the pockets of Metro-Fi's backers and on the advertising
revenues.  Ever play with a puppy in a pet store? They are so cute, you just
have to take it home.  If the business model doesn't pay out i.e.: They
don't get enough paying subscribers or they don't get the revenue from the
ads, then you will see it change. Not saying that was Metricom's demise, but
they had few users and any Metro network takes gobs of money to build out.
I've seen it first hand... With this model and with the equipment that will
be used in SF. It ain't free and it ain't cheap!

(kimo)
I agree with you- I think Metro-Fi's model still has yet to be proved a
success.  On the other hand ATT is doing Portland Oregon with them so there
may be more developing on this.


2. So Seattle will have it in 10 years.  By then, there will be something
bigger and better. Will the SF residents have to wait 10 years too?  Not
something I'd be willing to do- especially when I was faced with a proposal
from someone who will do it for free and assume all the risk.  What has SF
got to lose?

(kimo)
The EarthLink deal doesn't compare favorably with what other cities are
getting -  Why should SF settle?  Sf already has more hotspots than any
other city in the nation.  It is not hard to find a free hotspot currently.
SF shouldn't lock itself in to what is effectively a 16 year monopoly deal
with tech that is already dated.


3.  Milpitas, CA.  No tall residential buildings (but some are under
construction.  A 24-30 ft high access point with the relatively low gain of
the Tropos antennas will have a good amount of upward radiation.  It isn't
that much better of an antenna than a dipole would be.  It certainly has
little, if any, directional abilities.  It may not go up into a 30 story
hotel or apartment house, but how many residence in SF are in those?  That
can easily be the 5 or 10 % allowed not to be covered.  Most of my friends
in SF live in 2-4 story abodes.  According to the web page, the CPE is given
with a paid connection anyway, so there's no-one not getting one except for
the people taking the freebie.  Even if I chose to live in a place that
required use of a CPE, it is no different than buying an XM receiver to
listen to XM, or buying a transistor radio or boom box to listen to free
radio.

(kimo)
Hmm ok, well there are more and more tall residential buildings in SF and
isn't anything over 2 stories already above the 40 ft coverage that
EarthLink is agreeing too?  Are you suggesting (I hope it's true) that a CPE
solves all indoor and above 40 ft issues?  I thought it was of limited
value?

New Orleans, currently, is not using the Earthlink service for thier camera
projects.  They do use Tropos nodes, though, but only where needed for
access to the cameras.  The Tropos nodes you see with no SSID were part of
the free network the city put up post Katrina.  Earthlink has since deployed
in those areas where the network used to operate, so the City is in the
process of removing those nodes from their current locations.

 Selling is actively working a process or plan to ink deals.
 It involves prospecting, answering objections, providing a value
 proposition, inking contracts.
 Charles is right about the used car sales attitude, but that isn't
 usually the issue.
 Usually the issue is that no one is selling... everyone is just taking
 the orders as they come in.
 That's like saying the guy at the post office is in sales... How many
 stamps do you want?
 Cold calling, door knocking, networking and prospecting are sales
 activities.
 Waiting by the phone is not :)

I agree with Peter as well. That being said with the lower cost of gear
today its much cheaper to build out for a select few without loosing money.

  Tom,
 
  My limited exposure has a different perspective:
 
  It is easier to keep building out instead of selling deep.
  A prospect comes to the WISP with a $400 per month pipe and the WISP
  builds to him.
  There is the hope (and the hype) that this prospect will be the first
  of many - and the footprint is extended.
 
  I don't see fiber providers selling deep. I don't see many WISP
  selling deep either.
  The cash flow comes from filling the pipe.
 
  That's my 2 cents.

  tower build would have, we can truthfully look at the big picture and
  say that our company is better off with the tower than without, from
  an evaluation/financial point of view.  If a move brings a company in
  a positive direction, why not do it?  The new tower never costs as
  much as the early ones.  Everytime a new tower is built, new
  opportunity gets created, but old costs get shared, such as the
  upfront fixed costs of backbone transit bandwdith and primary
  overhead office staff.  In this business, its hard to stay small.

Those setups add about $200 here and there when you do the repeaters.

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

It is a fair question and what I would say is that the AU is an even
more
critical point in the network. Our AUs have options to be inserted into
chassis with redundant power supplies, etc. The difference in cost of
the AU
is minimal when working out the entire cost of the sector and its
clients,
especially when working in the OPEX issues.

For example, OPEX aside, let's say you are in the AlvarionCOMNET program
and
buy at the minimum level of 25 CPE, which would get you a $285/CPE cost
with
free shipping. Let's assume all 25 of those attach to a VL sector. In
that
case the sector will cost you about $1900 plus $285 x 25, or $9,025. The
equivalent size network at Mikrotik with the prices in this thread would
be
$348 x 25 + the $500 AU or $9,200 + shipping.
So, not even counting the OPEX issues, reduced truck roll, and shipping
we
are $175 cheaper. Then add in the 1 year free warranty, domestic
support,
FCC legality, and higher equity value of the network. Let's not forget
no
user license fees, no fee for new software upgrades.

Is my math wrong? The business equation seems simple unless I am
seriously
missing something.

 Problem is I might only get 10-15 subs at these sites in the next year.
 Lets say I can buy 10 APs.  I'd rather have 10 sites with omni's than 5
 sites with 180* sectors.
 At 15 subs a site I'd have 150 subs on 10 omni's at $35 a month.  That
 is $5250 a month.
 If I sectorize 5 sites with 15 subs that is 75 subs and only $2625 added
 to the monthly income.

 Back to reality.  I can't afford 10 APs.but still, I don't see
 sectors as being such a great thing.  What is the point of doubling the

 Due to the eirp limits at 900 (36dB total) your antenna choice really
should
 take into account the radio gain first.
 
 Having said that, a lot of people put in the high gain 900 omni antennas
and
 don't seem to have much trouble with them.
 
 I agree with the sector idea though.
 
 The 900 that I'm using now is trango.  They have almost got the full eirp
 built right in to the radio/antenna system as it comes from the factory.
 The down side is that it takes 6 ap's to cover 360*.  That can get
spendy.
 Especially if you pay rent per antenna.
 
 As a rule, we are sectorizing more and more sites these days.  Even the
ones
 out in the sticks.  There are too many other users out there showing up
all

 on the PacWireless OD9-11 (http://tinyurl.com/vq7dj).
 
 With few exceptions, and omni in 900 is going to be too noisy to be 
 very useful.  There are probably some regions that this is not true 
 for, but I'd guess they will be few and far between.  I have one 
 customer that is using the SR-9 cards in a test scenario in east 
 Texas (on the outskirts of a large city).  He tried for a month to 
 test with a vertical omni...NO luck at all.  He went to a horizontal 
 omni without much improvement, though he could at least connect 
 beyond the 1000 foot range.  With a horizontal sector, he is getting 
 2-3 miles with good speeds.
 
 This band is almost impossible to work in without a spectrum 
 analyzer.  There is just too much noise around and it is not impeded 
 by trees (at least not as much as the higher frequencies).  At any 
 rate, ymmv.

Re: [WISPA] Legal insight? - OTARD VS Property Managers

2006-10-04 Thread Joe Laura
I did direct tv for years. Still do. You really have to read the rules to do
a install and be sure you are in the clear. For instance, you can not just
bolt a satellite arm on the wall even if it is not a common area. Thats why
you see alot of 5 gallon buckets of concrete with pipes in them. From memory
I do not think you are allowed to drill through the wall either. I used to
use a 6 or so flat cable coupler that the window would close on. I would
try to do the install in the late evenings after the managment office closed
and leave a copy of the Otard rule with the tennant with my phone# on the
front of it. Joe

Mike, they can prevent you from roof mounting if it is a multi-tenant,
multi-floor sort of building. If your customer rents a townhouse style,
you should have access. Maybe they can prevent you from holing the roof
itself for under some loop hole that protects them from risks to the
structure, but certainly they could not prevent an eave mount. 100% they
cannot prevent a mount on a subscribers' balcony.

Here is the FCC factsheet on the issue:

When I read the otard rules it seems to me that they CAN stop you from
mounting on the roof. The only place you could mount was tenant
exclusive
areas. Basically the balcony attached to the apartment.

I hope I misread it though.

Marlon,

Just curious, have you ever had to force this issue with property
management?  I imagine this could be a difficult fight to win for a
WISP.  What happens at the end of the day when the Property Manager
tells the WISP to shove off?  Legal action?  For what, potential lost
subscribers?

 I wonder how or if the privacy checkbox will effect the released data if
 they win.

 Also the information will be relatively worthless for what these people
 are supposedly looking for.  When the form is filled out, we only report
 total numbers and zip codes covered.  Granted if you serve only 1 zip
 code then it is obvious where your customers are.  Even in my small
 coverage area I serve 4 zip codes and only one of them has any
 substatial number of customers.

 What I will find disturbing is if they are successful in getting my
 customer count released.  So what if I find out that Qwest has umpteen
 billion DSL customers and they serve my zip code.  I already knew that.
 However if Qwest of any of the miriade of resellers can see that I have
 X customers in my area they may decide that marketing there is now a
 good idea because of the uptake potential.

  First of all to JohnnyO - you need to spend a lot more time practicing

  a request to change the name of the thread.  FWIW, Lonnie did NOT
  hijack this thread - others who were testing WAR boards out brought up
 
  their experiences with it and testing and Lonnie responded.  That is
  entirely appropriate.  There would not be a response like George's if

  want a breakdown.   Also it is not George's responsibility to manage
  posts and subject lines, so it is not fair to dig into him about list
  management.

  to JohnnyO offlist.  I don't think this was a situation of bigotry,
  just a slightly misunderstood bit of joking around between a couple of
 
  people who are a little bit sensitive toward ribbing coming from each
  other.  Not a big deal at all.
 
  Finally, to everyone...
 
  I am very happy to see that we have built up a nice community on the
  WISPA lists, and I  hope we continue to build that sense of
  community.  I am all for a little bit of spice and it is good to see
  some legitimate, real world experience and testing get exchanged
  between the members.  Of all the lists I'm on, this is now the most
  useful one to me by FAR, and that is not something that happened
  overnight.  It has taken some time and unfortunately we do still have

 Gang,

 I'm not a UPS expert, but if the batteries were deeply discharged,
 wouldn't the extra load of the external batteries would make it hard on
 the ups when it tries to bring them back up?

 Maybe I misunderstood the question; but, if I needed 48VDC
 uninterrupted, I'd string 4 deep cycle batteries together and connect a
 good multi-stage battery charger.  Then I'd run my 48 V devices right
 from the batteries.  If you don't need 120AC, then there's no need for a
 UPS.  If the UPS is already there and uses a 48V stack, then I'd tap
 into that...

  I currently use APC SU700NET UPSs in external 6-deep boxes to

of
  charge left, it e-mails to let us know it's in a critically low charge
  state.
 
  So, if we put on extra batteries, does the UPS know this and does it
know
  what kind of runtime it has left?

  Brian,
 
   I guess I am an idiot because I hadn't thought of that! I don't have
any
  (hardly) of my APC UPS's overloaded and it would probably be pretty
easy
  to
  do that. I bought some rack mount Compaq 3000Watt UPS's for the NOC
and
  tied
  4 Gel Cell 100lb batteries to each of those Compaq's. That has been
  working
  like a charm, but it scares the fire out of me to mess around them.
While
  connecting them I managed to arc the wires and that produced a ball of
  fire
  that was bigger than I was! I later found out those 4 12VDC batteries
in
  a
  series (48VDC) produces more than enough DC voltage to knock your guts
  out
  while it blows the bottom of your feet off.
 
  Sorry for that story - but it may keep some of us from leaving here
  early
 
  Mac

  Mac,
  Can you tap in to the battery lines on the UPS and add extra
  external
  batteries to extend the run time? This would give you the advantage of
  conditioned power and automatic switch over of the UPS, and you would
  still
  have any other management features of the UPS still available to you.
  Just
  an idea to consider.

 Hi,

 I'm not sure about other parts of the country, but here in Idaho they
 have been using 700mhz for city/county emergency services. Many towers
 have expensive ($100k) point to point links to feed the system, and then
 a full rack of equipment inside. The idea is that every emergency
 service would be able to communicate with each other using only 1 radio.
 They will also have voice and data services from that same radio, and
 it's fully roaming.

 I only know of two towers with it running, but there are plans to
 install several more systems this summer.

  By Jeffrey Silva
  May 12, 2006
  WASHINGTON—Law enforcement and first-responder groups asked key Senate
  lawmakers to consider a private-sector plan to designate a block of
  spectrum in the 700 MHz band for a national wireless broadband
  public-safety network, one that would be shared with commercial
  wireless carriers and include an interoperability capability
  policy-makers have repeatedly call for—without success—since the Sept.
  11, 2001, terrorists attacks.
 
  “We are dedicated to ensuring that public safety has access to the
  most advanced technology to support those services that meet its
  stringent requirements to provide safety and security to all
  Americans. Congress and the [Federal Communications Commission] cannot
  afford to pass an opportunity to explore the availability of an
  additional 30 megahertz of spectrum that would meet public safety’s
  needs as well as elevate the safety of all Americans,” stated the
  organizations in a letter to Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted
  Stevens (R-Alaska) and the panel’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Daniel
  Inouye (Hawaii).
 
  The letter was signed by officials of the Association of Public-Safety
  Communications Officials-International, International Association of
  Chiefs of Police, International Association of Fire Chiefs, Major
  Cities Chiefs Association, Major County Sheriffs’ Association and
  National Sheriffs’ Association.
 
  The groups said they are studying the proposal submitted by Cyren Call
  Communications Inc. to the FCC late last month, and have not decided
  whether to endorse it. “However,” they stated, “we do believe that the
  concept of reallocating the 30 megahertz of spectrum in the 700 MHz
  band in a manner that would promote interoperable, public-safety
  broadband communications is worthy of public discussion.”
 
  A public debate that could prompt lawmakers to reconsider plans to
  auction by February 2008 valuable spectrum in the 747-762 MHz and
  777-792 MHz bands is precisely what the cell-phone industry wants to
  avoid.
 
  Mobile-phone carriers are keenly aware of how Cyren Chairman Morgan
  O’Brien won over policy-makers in the late 1980s when he presented the
  then-radical idea of cobbling together narrow radio dispatch
  frequencies to create Nextel Communications Inc. (now part of Sprint
  Nextel Corp.). Nextel became a competitor to the cellular duopoly at
  that time. National mobile-phone carrier executives have not forgotten
  either about Nextel’s successful campaign to remedy interference
  Nextel caused to 800 MHz radio systems in a way that secured Nextel 10
  megahertz of spectrum in the 1.9 GHz band.
 
  Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), chairman of the House telecom and Internet
  subcommittee, is the only lawmaker to publicly voice outright
  opposition to Cyren’s proposal. Upton did so shortly after Cyren
  submitted its proposal to the FCC on April 27. The Michigan lawmaker
  argued the plan would disrupt the balance in legislation that forced
  broadcasters to surrender 700 MHz as part of their transition to
  digital technology, set aside 24 megahertz for public safety and
  earmarked $1 billion for public-safety interoperability deployment.
  The 24 megahertz already reserved for public safety is adjacent to the
  separate, clear chunk of 30 megahertz at the heart of Cyren’s
  initiative. The 30 megahertz is potentially worth billions of dollars
  in auction receipts for the U.S. Treasury. In addition to mobile-phone
  carriers, wireless Internet and computer firms have expressed interest
  in the 700 MHz spectrum to drive WiMAX and other wireless broadband
  technologies.

 My name is David Maddox and I am an AmeriCorps member volunteering with
 the Louisiana Delta Service Corps, and acting as the Parent Liaison for
 Mayfair Elementary School in Baton Rouge, LA.  The school had been
 closed for years but was re-opened due to the overwhelming influx of
 students displaced to Baton Rouge by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  Now
 that the necessary changes have been made to accommodate these students
 within the Baton Rouge School System, Mayfair's sustentation is no
 longer required.
 
 Understanding that many of the families here have not yet decided, or
 have been unable to decide about where they will be making a new life, I
 have been researching Virtual Schools as an option for some of the more
 itinerant families.
 
 Through the network created by my involvement with the Americorps
 program, I have made contacts with local NPOs who make available to
 hurricane survivors the necessary hardware and software to participate
 in the Virtual Schools program; however, these low income families would
 still need assistance with internet access.
 
 I am emailing you today in the hopes that you might be able to point me
 in the right direction.  If you are aware of any agency or program that
 might help provide free or discounted internet access please let me
 know.
 
 Thank in advance for your help.

 Jack,
 I hate to say it but didn't we say I told you so There is just not
 enough spectrum to design networks like this to work with anything but
 dedicated CPE devices with outdoor antennas. Simply flooding an area with
 more signal to let laptops inside a house work will not solve the problem.
 It just creates more noise on already maxed out spectrum. I really wish
the
 vendors and project stalwarts would admit this is a problem with these
 networks and not gloss it over. Self interference and outside interference
 are always going to be huge problems in these muni-networks. Everyone
trying
 to build on the fact that off the shelf consumer devices can access this
 network will be the downfall. Wi-fi was never designed for a massive
outdoor
 deployment such as this and when you try to make up for the fact that you
do
 not have control over the CPE when it comes to proper RF planning you are
 doomed to failure. Just my 2 cents.

 Unfortunately, this may be one of the first of many such muni problems
 that I've been forcasting for years. Muni wireless can be done correctly
 and WISPs (IMHO) should always try (when allowed) to play a positive
 role in proper network design and operation however most muni networks
 are incorrectly designed by people with limited wireless experience
 (yes, that even includes some mesh network vendors) which will lead to
 network failure, waste of taxpayer money, and possible loss of jobs on
 the part of the city IT folks (not to mention the elected officials) who
 backed the networks without first learning about how wireless technology
 really works.

 HP likes to design these Tropos networks by never having more than 2 hops
 before it gets put on some sort of backhaul. This in theory works well but
 in reality, you still run out of 2.4 GHz channels to place the access
nodes
 on. Remember each radio/mesh unit is at the same height as every other one
 thus firing their signal directly in to the antenna of all neighboring
 nodes. The users may not see the noise but node to node traffic certainly
 hears it. When the mesh radio is deaf because of noise, the network just
 plain fails to work. End of story. Mesh will simply not work on a loaded
 residential user based system without a lot more spectrum. People are
trying
 to fight the laws of physics. Ask any ham radio guy about this. When they
 originally built packet radio networks back in the early 90's, they found
 you needed separate channels to make it work (and that was only 1200
baud).
 San Francisco, Philly and any other muni network are going to fail based
on
 this problem. The idea and premise of a muni network is solid based on the
 points Matt Larsen brought up but as Jack and others have stated, they
have
 been sold on all of the positive benefits but never get told the
 limitations. The typical IT mentality is that they can throw more money at
 the problem to increase capacity. This is simply not true based on the
 limited number of useable channels. Sad thing is there will be a lot of
 taxpayer money wasted to prove this point.



 Thank You,

 Dawn,

 Thanks for posting the St. Cloud PepLink and HP info.

 Using standard CPE (PePLink)is very good but using Tropos nodes is very,
 very bad. Very bad because they only have one single 2.4 GHz radio so
 after 2 or 3 hops, all the throughput capability is gone not to mention
 that the interference level from having all the access and backhaul
 packets colliding on 2.4 GHz (along with any WISP and other 2.4 GHz
 network packets) will slow all the networks (muni and WISP) down
 further. I hate to finger anyone but Tropos' stubborn refusal or
 inability (anyone at Tropos listening???) to produce a 2-band mesh node
 is going to doom them to failure along with any big city that deploys
 their nodes without an extremely efficient point-to-multipoint backbone
 design on 5 GHz.

  PePLink announces as the official Citywide Wireless CPE provider for
  City of St. Cloud in Florida  *
 
  *Hong Kong, Mar 7, 2006 - *PePLink, a leader in citywide WiFi wireless
  broadband devices today announced the City of St. Cloud, FL, a suburb of
  Orlando, has chosen PePLink to be the official wireless CPE provider for
  the Cyber Spot, the City's 100% free citywide high-speed wireless
  Internet service.
 
  With a reliable, secure, ease of use wireless CPE - PePLink Surf, every
  citizen or business in the city of St. Cloud can connect to the citywide
  wireless network at a high speed. The CPE greatly enhances the
  throughput and reliability of both up and down link compared with a
  wireless-enabled computer desktop or notebook computer.
 
  The simple true plug and play nature of the PePLink Surf helps the
  citizens in St. Cloud to bring the wireless signal indoors with ease. At
  the same time, the PePLink Surf units can be remotely managed, monitored
  and provisioned by PePLink's carrier-grade management and reporting
  solution, PCMS (or PePLink Centralized Management System). This can
  ensure a scalable and rapid rollout of the wireless systems within a
  short period of time. This eliminates an onsite installation charge.
 
  Being chosen by City of St. Cloud has further endorsed our capability
  to offer reliable wireless solutions to municipal wireless networks
  built with mesh network technology, said Alex Chan, Managing Director
  of PePLink. PePLink Surf together with PCMS is the complete solution
  specifically designed for today's citywide wireless networks.
 
  PePLink Surf series consists of Surf 200BG and Surf 400BG. For more
  information on PePLink Surf series, please visit http://www.peplink.com

Anyone know anything about Motorola's 802.11 mesh products? Are they
rebranding someone else's gear (as it appears they did with Orthogon)
or building their own? I haven't heard anything about it, but just
found the marketing on my most recent visit to canopywireless.com.

Any success stories with mesh muni wireless yet? I just attended a
'Wireless Wisconsin' conference largely about Milwaukee's project,
which is being done by Midwest Fiber Networks. They've not resolved on
a vendor yet, but claim that they'll build quickly because they will
operate the network independently: they only lease the city's
infrastructure.

You are absolutely right John. I can't list all the cities we are doing
Public Safety projects for right now, but we are starting to light up the
city of Gilroy CA. A lot of dollars are being spent on projects in the name
of Public Safety, especially to allow Emergency Services to be able to
remotely access network resources. The next thing on the radar is providing
Internet access. If the WISP gets there early, he can be a part of the
solution. If the WISP isn't there, the city will go ahead and do it anyway.

Munis are just your hometown wanting service just like residents,
business and education. As soon as we learn this we will all benefit
from it greatly. Public safety specifically is the killer application of
muni broadband in my opinion. If we all learn how to sell this to our
towns and service it correctly we will inevitably win in the end.
Backhaul to munis who decide to go it alone is also an option. I would
bet most if not all of them would pay for a service agreement on their
networks also. Maybe they will pay you to build their network for them?

 What I thought the list might find interesting is that we
 (AirInfinite, now One Ring Networks) were included in GTS's bid and
 will now be providing backhaul for the wireless network. I believe
 this is an interesting approach for WISPs to take when dealing with
 munis that have an interest in wireless.

Subject: [WISPA] Generator -- UPS


 Winds in my area knocked power out early this morning (GEORGE R - heard
you
 guys had 100mph gusts on the Oregon coast...how'd it go?).

 I power all my WiPOPs with an APC UPS (Smart-UPS 700) and grid power.
They
 keep the sites up for 2-3 hours depending on equipment load at the site.
I
 put in a SNMP card (AP9617 - can e-mail upon many different UPS events
 without having a SNMP server).  I get notified that the site is on battery
 power...buys me time to get to the site with a generator.

 My goal is to have a generator that I can plug the UPS into.  Here's the
 scenario I want:

 1: Power out. I get notified that UPS is running on batteries.  Get geared
 up.
 2: Hook up generator to UPS.  (here's the important part) BATTERIES CHARGE
 ON UPS.
 3: UPS Battery gets fully charged.  I get notified 'fully charged'.
 4: Fuel in generator runs out.  I get notified that UPS is running on
 batteries.
 5: Get fuel to site within 1-2 hours  restart generator.  GOTO 3:.

 Site never goes down and I don't have to make unnecessary trips because I
 think the generator might be low on fuel.  Last year we had power down at
a
 site down for 2.5 weeks.  Problem was that the site was a last priority
 because the problem was past any homes with humans in them. Shuttling gas
to
 a generator twice a day for 3 hours of driving for 2.5 weeks got very very
 very old very very very quickly.

 I've got a generator now (Coleman 1850W).  Even with the power sensitivity
 level set to low on the UPS's, it they won't run on the generator.  So I
 think I need cleaner power.

 Recommendations?

 (power just came back up to my site...got notified by the UPS...gotta go
and
 take the equipment off the generator and plug it into the UPS...customers
 down for 60 seconds while the Trango backhaul boots).

  Why (slamming head on desk) would you continue with Motorola when them
 dirty suckers are against you at every turn? They come out (Motorpoota)
 with a new CPE, lower priced but cut your through put (and throat)  to
 almost nothing just to bait you into paying for an upgrade at a later
 date. Who in their right minds would buy a CPE that had its nuts cut out
 to a 512k connection? Get real - Trango is our buddy in that they have
 stepped up and brought us affordability, ability (triple play) and they
 arent lined up in D.C. trying to reclaim spectrum to put under license!!
 Not only that, but Motorpoota has lobbyist that are on payroll and in DC
 everyday!

I think WISPA needs to have a plaque made up and sent right to the
 top man with the brass Kahonnies (Todd)  at Trango exclaiming our
 approval, thanks and support :-) for enabling us to deliver what we
 deliver at a price that is affordable associated with a name as good as
 Trango. You know these guys put a lot of effort into this product with
 US in mind!

 Sascha,

 Although I agree with you, Bell South's actions do not condone the action
of the city.

 New Orleans could easilly instead announce a grant offer or loan program
for small business ISPs, to rebuild New Orlean's
 communications systems.

 They could understand the problem with having only a monopoly providing
most of the services. And they could fix that problem from
 the start, empowering the vast amount of talent the industry has to offer,
to accellerate the launch of a network. Instead they get
 their network designed by a Manufacturer.  The mayor should be helping the
peiople rebuild their homes and neighborhoods, and let
 the communication companies do their own thing.
 How about giving the grant money to New Orlean local businesses? It may
add one or two more local jobs.

   And with bell having to rebuild their whole infrastructure here in New
   Orleans its a bigger slap in the face IMO. The hotel owners are pretty
   upset
   with this as well. Ya, the City has really ruffled some feathers over
   this
   move.
 
  Regardless of whether or not the City of New Orleans government needs a
  spanking ;) -- I have a fairly different take on this matter, one less
  focused on the specifics of the New Orleans/BellSouth fiasco and more
  oriented toward BellSouth's general business strategy.  BellSouth is
  clearly attempting to leverage it's market dominance in one area
(wireline
  communications) to prevent competition in a different realm (in this
case,
  wireless networking).  This is exactly the type of dynamic that
anti-trust
  laws were intended to keep in check.
 
  BellSouth's actions in New Orleans are just the most recent
manifestation
  of a strategy that _will_ be utilized against folks like us (e.g.,
  independent ISPs). BellSouth has systematically attempted to prevent any
  sort of competition within their service areas -- their New Orleans
  tantrum is only the latest example.  I wrote up a brief piece about some
  of their most recent actions here:
 
  http://www.saschameinrath.com/2005dec04bellsouths_shame
 
  I'm sure there are numerous ways in which the City of New Orleans needs
  reforming -- but BellSouth's actions are targeted against any and all
  competitive entities -- they will certainly focus on WISPA members down
  the road.  Instead of blaming New Orleans for what is obviously a
  widespread business strategy, I'd recommend focusing on BellSouth, who
  clearly isn't interested in playing well with others and has a
  well-documented history of using its market power to bully others.

Title: Message



Before putting anything on a tower near new orleans 
I would suggest you do a site survey first. Unfortunantly, Since the cell guys 
came into town 5.7/5.8 does not work anymore. There is a wisp here that has a 
meeting with the FCC today here in New Orleans to try to make them take their 
36db dishes down and play nice. Everyone wants to shoot 5.8 and it just aint 
working no more. 5.8 gear is still up and hopfully it will beable to be used 
again cause the 5.2/.3 is extremly crowded as you can imagine. Joe

Re: [WISPA] Back to the hurricaine......A time to focus

2005-08-31 Thread Joe Laura



Sorry I did not post a reply until now. I just got the opportunity to sit in 
front of a PC. I want to thank you'll for all the E-Mails I got of support. I 
really needed that. Its extremly hard to sit down an even just type something 
about this Hurricane. It has been a nightmare to say the least for all of us on 
the Gulf Coast. All of my family is alive and I am so thankfull for that. The 
mental effects that this has on one is unimaginable. At first I thought it was 
just me but everyone I talk to just begins to break down when they realize the 
reality of what is going on. I am determined to get past this and find the 
strength to be back in action as soon as I can get back home. They are talking 
maybe three months to even drive into New Orleans. I am at my Wifes cousins 
house and Shrevport and just wish all of the other people were as fortunate as 
I to have a roof over there head. Thanks for the offers of help!! Its the 
things such as that, that help us keep strong! Joe Laura
