Re: [WISPA] procera or similiar product

2014-10-24 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Powercode is the distributer that Procera has chosen to use to get their 
product into the WISP market. Simon is very knowlegable on the Procera device, 
and the new lower priced unit at $17k is alot easier to swallow than the $30k 
mid range one they had before

 am hooked and want to learn more, but at $17k a pop it’s a little hard

 locations that I serve. Are there any other solution I can look for to
 do similar functions that may be more cost effective?
  
 I am also a little leery at the fact that I have left them 2 voice mail
 messages as well as sent an email from earlier this week with no return
 call. So that’s a concern if it takes a while to get sales support if
 tech support would be any different. So I was wanting some feed back
 from some actual users of their product or other similar products.

Re: [WISPA] Mimosa B5-160 v UBNT AF5-US Chart (working)

2014-08-08 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Jamie,

Thanks for the quick reply. In non-sync mode what is expected latency on
the links? Also in sync-mode what is the throughput hit when you adjust the
window size for better latency? Reason I ask is you mentioned 8ms latency
in your post and If I am backhauling across 7 towers that could add over
50ms of latency from one end of the network to the other...

  The implementation is integrated with an advanced custom GPSDO for 1PPS

 switch TX/RX  on the GPS epoch rise and fall.

  TDMA sync modes allow 50/50 split or 75/25 split for enhanced

  For non sync modes, auto TDMA adjusts up/down dynamically and avoids

Moisture is not an issue.  Good drip loops on both the antenna cable and
CAT-5 Cables.  We actually sealed the entry of the radio with mastic to be
sure.  The first radio lasted about 10 months.  When it went, we first
swapped antennas, thinking maybe a lightning strike damaged it (we've had
the same effect on signal from bad antenna).  That did nothing to help, so
we next swapped the radio.  Signal back.  That lasted about four weeks.
Swapped radio again, and signal back.  Lasted about 12 hours this time.

 

No visible damage to any of the radios.  No moisture found inside.  We don't
have capability to test in-house.  Will send to SWG or Wireless Units to
have them take a look.

 We're having an issue with a 9000APC that is very strange.  Here is the
 situation.  We have a remote water tank (stand pipe 75' high) that has a
 few homes around it.  So, we have a 9000APC and a connectorized 2450AP
 on the tower, both on Omni's.  The antennas are on a stand almost
 exactly 4' apart.  There are six subs on the 900MHz radio.  About a
 month ago, I had an issue where (after about 9 months) the signal to all
 of the customers just faded out, to the point that only two subs were
 still good.  I swapped the antenna and that did not help.  I swapped the
 radio, and that fixed the problem.  Trouble is, it only lasted about
 three weeks, and the same thing happened again.  I swapped the radio
 again yesterday, and today, I'm back in the same boat.  The radio in the
 AP keeps going out.  I had the climbers check the grounding, and we
 actually ran a dedicated ground yesterday off the water tank.  My knee
 jerk feeling today is that maybe the radios are too close together, and
 the 2450 is burning up the 900.  Could this be the case?  Any ideas?
 Here is an example of what happens.  Customers that run signals -47 to
 -57 become -70 to -75 and those who's signals were -70 and up fall clear
 off.  Swap the radio, and everything goes back to normal.  This is now
 three radios that have gone, each lasting a much shorter time than the
 previous.  (this one did not make it 24 hours).
 I can't completely rule out lightning - the tower is in a very wooded
 area.  But usually you burn up the NIC in that case - not weaken the
radio.
 Thoughts?

Interesting mystery!  Clearly you don't want to blow more radios this way.

Any more clues about what may have happened right before the failures?
I'm wondering about weather events.  Did it fail after a rain storm?
Water coming in to the radio or corroding the antenna connectors might
result.  And if the antenna's connector is flaky, re-attaching it to a
new radio might be a temporary fix, but reattaching it to an old radio
might fix it too (temporariy).  Have you examined the broken radios in
the shop?

Re: [WISPA] Strange problem with Canopy 9000APC

I use them with no insertion loss at all. There is a version of it with a
male end for antenna however I don't see it on Tessco's site. The polyphaser
model # is DSXL-MA

Never tried that before.  We always use LPU's on the CAT-5 but I've never
put one on the antenna lead.  What kind of line loss does it cause?  I don't
see that in the Tech Specs.  Also, does it come with a male antenna
connector side?

Moisture is not an issue.  Good drip loops on both the antenna cable and
CAT-5 Cables.  We actually sealed the entry of the radio with mastic to be
sure.  The first radio lasted about 10 months.  When it went, we first
swapped antennas, thinking maybe a lightning strike damaged it (we've had
the same effect on signal from bad antenna).  That did nothing to help, so
we next swapped the radio.  Signal back.  That lasted about four weeks.
Swapped radio again, and signal back.  Lasted about 12 hours this time.

 

No visible damage to any of the radios.  No moisture found inside.  We don't
have capability to test in-house.  Will send to SWG or Wireless Units to
have them take a look.

 We're having an issue with a 9000APC that is very strange.  Here is the

 on the tower, both on Omni's.  The antennas are on a stand almost
 exactly 4' apart.  There are six subs on the 900MHz radio.  About a
 month ago, I had an issue where (after about 9 months) the signal to all
 of the customers just faded out, to the point that only two subs were
 still good.  I swapped the antenna and that did not help.  I swapped the
 radio, and that fixed the problem.  Trouble is, it only lasted about
 three weeks, and the same thing happened again.  I swapped the radio
 again yesterday, and today, I'm back in the same boat.  The radio in the
 AP keeps going out.  I had the climbers check the grounding, and we
 actually ran a dedicated ground yesterday off the water tank.  My knee
 jerk feeling today is that maybe the radios are too close together, and
 the 2450 is burning up the 900.  Could this be the case?  Any ideas?
 Here is an example of what happens.  Customers that run signals -47 to
 -57 become -70 to -75 and those who's signals were -70 and up fall clear
 off.  Swap the radio, and everything goes back to normal.  This is now
 three radios that have gone, each lasting a much shorter time than the
 previous.  (this one did not make it 24 hours).
 I can't completely rule out lightning - the tower is in a very wooded
 area.  But usually you burn up the NIC in that case - not weaken the
radio.
 Thoughts?

Interesting mystery!  Clearly you don't want to blow more radios this way.

Any more clues about what may have happened right before the failures?
I'm wondering about weather events.  Did it fail after a rain storm?
Water coming in to the radio or corroding the antenna connectors might
result.  And if the antenna's connector is flaky, re-attaching it to a
new radio might be a temporary fix, but reattaching

I'm presently using UBNT M gear as 2.4GHz APs. I've found that all client
devices can connect on 20MHz channels and only some clients can connect on
40MHz channels. I also found that when the UBNT gear is in 40MHz channel
mode it doesn't fall back to 20MHz for the clients that can't do 40MHz
channels as some other brand APs do.

Is there an RF card that can be used with an MT board that does 40MHz
channels and will fall back to 20MHz channels for the clients that can't do
40MHz?

I'd rather stay all UBNT for RF but it doesn't appear they have something
that can do this.

Thanks!

The proper fix for this problem is a visit from the enforcement guys, and a 
nasty fine for repeat offenders.

After that, what would be so hard about using sensing and DFS (done right 
this time) to cause systems near the radars to notch out the 110mhz of 
spectrum while not bothering anyone else?

The radar systems are well known, should be an easy signal to detect.

The radios already tend to send a LOT of data back and forth, radio name, 
signal levels, speed, language, channel used etc. etc. etc.  Certainly any 
radio that turns on could sense for 30 seconds, if it detects a TDWR signal 
at a certain threshold, then report than back to the AP and the AP could 
then lock out the needed channels for that particular location.

This should be able to be done via a firmware upgrade to any legacy or new 
hardware out there.

Cheap, relatively easy, fixes the problem and does NOT take away 110mhz of 
newly acquired spectrum from the rest of the country.

In spite of the noteworthy efforts on the part of many WISP operators and in
spite of a temporary decrease in the levels of TDWR interference reported to

us
by the FCC, the TDWR interference situation has unfortunately deteriorated. 
The
FCC now reports that some locations (New York, Chicago, Denver and Dallas) 
that
were recently cleared of interference are once again experiencing 
significant
interference problems. The TDWR interference in San Juan Puerto Rico is so 
bad
that the TDWR system had to be shut off by the FAA. This is not good news
because the FAA is pushing the FCC to solve these interference problems once

and
for all.

Voluntary database registration has unfortunately not proven to be effective
enough. There are still some operators who apparently have not heard about 
the
TDWR interference problem and some who have simply failed to bring and keep
their systems in compliance. On the supply-chain side, there are several
manufacturers and distributors who did take positive, affirmative and
responsible action to help address the problem however they were they in the
minority. Most manufacturers and distributors did not step up to the plate
with customer education or software upgrades. Because airline safety is a 
very
important issue, it only takes a few bad actors to cause significant 
problems
for everyone else.

The FCC is under strong pressure to take steps to solve the interference 
problem
for good. The FCC Office of Engineering and Technology has started drafting 
a
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). We don't know yet what new rules the 
FCC
will propose. They could require that the 5570 to 5680 frequency range be
notched out for all new equipment. This would mean that we would lose the 
use
of 110 MHz of spectrum. Another possibility is that TDWR database 
registration
will be required of all WISPs instead the current voluntary registration for
WISPs located near TDWRs. A third possibility is that all new equipment 
might
have to automatically log into a geo-location database (similar to the TV 
White
Space database) and receive a list of allowable frequencies. Nearby TDWR
frequencies and a guard band around the TDWR frequency range would be 
prohibited.

The FCC OET has agreed to meet with us to listen to and discuss our 
suggestions
about ways to address the problem and what new rules should be proposed in 
the
NPRM. I've prepared a short online survey for WISPA Members to see what new
rules they prefer and what suggestions they have. Please take a few minutes
today to review this survey and give me your feedback before I publish this

Re: [WISPA] NSM2 StarOS

2011-02-08 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Tranzeo joined the 10mhz party about a year ago with a simple firmware
upgrade to the CPQ/SL units. Before that only their newer SL2 radios with a
specific mini-PCI card had the option to do 10mhz And even that was only
about 18-months prior to now. I will say though that the 10mhz Tranzeo's
plays quite nice with a Mikrotik AP and I am getting about 8-9mbps to
clients within 2 miles. This has enabled me to survive a little longer
before upgrading the network. I will say if Tranzeo hadn't have added the
10mhz when they did I would really be hurtin but it came along just at the
right time and squeeze some more life outa these ugly white square's that
everyone hates.

 I understand Aggregate needs to be turned off on the CPE.

 I'm running 1.5.15.3b on the AP and I'm running 5.3 on the CPE.

 I'm using 10Mhz channels.

 I can see the AP in a site survey, but it won't associate.

 I've tried turning off superA/G and other special features on the AP.

 Can anyone think what I'm missing?

 Thanks,
 Roger

 Kurt,

 You are exactly right. Working inside the Beltway is very expensive. 
 Office Rent, Malpractice insurance, hotels, food and just about 
 everything else is twice what it is in the common world. However, to 
 be clued in and in touch with the daily events that happen at the FCC 
 and Congress, it is almost essential that we maintain a presence there 
 through our attorney. Many associations have their corporate offices 
 in the DC Metro Area. We are a long ways from doing that and we 
 maintain our virtual offices across the country at Board Member 
 offices and my little rented office in Indiana. We are appreciative 
 of all the supplies, electricity, insurance and other expenses 
 incurred by those that serve on the Board, so that we can maintain low 
 overhead and dedicate the major portion of our revenue to go to 
 lobbying type efforts.

 For those of you that are wondering. Our legal expenses last year 
 were almost $100,000.

 I appreciate your kind words and we will continue to work for the 
 industry. Hopefully others will join the members in supporting our 
 efforts.

 Respectfully,

 Rick,

 I just seen the total expenses sheet, and all I have to say is WOW. I 
 had no idea that there was as much legal fees associated with running 
 WISPA. Lets face it, these annual member fees are CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP 
 compared to the overall cost of running WISPA. And right now pretty 
 much everyone that is a WISP (paying member of WISPA or not) is 
 getting benefit from this organization from the lobbying efforts and 
 FCC agenda. I encourage anyone that is not a current member to sign 
 up. I know that there are a TON of wisps out there that are not 
 members. I would estimate that possibly only 25-50% of all total WISPS 
 are members.

 The WISPS that are not current members should be ashamed of themselves 
 because of all that they are benefitting from at the expense of the 
 rest of us

I remember being on the isp-wireless list and getting emailed about one

Part-15 lists.

Then it went from there to WISPA.

Then splintered to AFMUG and Butch's Mikrotik list.

Now we may be back to WISPA and the new wug.cc , although I do believe in

 Um people bash WISPA on this list occasionally. It's usually not
 warranted. There are a few trolls that like to make trouble. Why do you
 feel that we can't bash WISPA on this list? If there are legitimate
 concerns with the organization, and one feels they are a threat to the
 industry, then voice them.

 Also going on a list and complaining usually doesn't get anything done.
 It just wastes peoples time and bandwidth. If someone has constructive
 criticism, and a well reasoned argument/position, that will get
 something done.

 I've subscribed to the WUG list. Hopefully it will be interesting and
 not a waste of time, however I will probably start various new threads
 on the WISPA list, as it has served my and many others needs quite well.
 I've been on the list since 2008 and been very happy with it. Numerous
 products/services/organizations have been praised when necessary, and
 called out when necessary. So I'm not quite sure the purpose of the WUG
 list.

 We will see what the WUG list does. My initial feelings, is that it will
 be a fringe list that ends up doing a lot of harm to the industry.
 Journalists will see lots of trolling and pick that out as the face of
 the industry, because it makes better material for the sensationalist
 media.

 I realize that as business owners, we have very strong opinions and
 value our independence and rights. However we must also keep in mind
 that we as an industry are under attack on a continuous basis. WISPA has
 provided a focal point for us to coalesce around as an industry. They
 have continuously shown a deep understanding of how to keep the industry
 growing. They have produced a number of products (3.65 regs,
 whitespaces, dfrs etc.) These end products take substantial amounts of
 time and effort to produce. They have seen how the sausage is made, and
 not been afraid to get their hands dirty.

 I hope to join WISPA in the near future and contribute my support. I've
 been slowly ramping up my WISP and preparing to roll out a broad beta.

 I should get back to that now, have a demo due by the end of the week

Nice to see products like this developing and being made available, but it
still misses the mark by not including SFP ports.  Also, the GigE port count
is far too few.  Six?  Need more like 24 or 48 ports!  grin

 

USB ports are great to see on this router!  Good job there and what IMO
should be mandatory on all HUB site or core based routers.

Baltic Networks introduced a new low-cost 6 Port Gigabit Router Powered by
MikroTik at the Animal Farm Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah

January 14, 2011

 

Aurora, Illinois - Baltic Networks introduced MaxxWave RouterMaxx 1106T, a
new low cost 6-port Gigabit Router powered by IntelR newest technology, the
CoreT2 Quad/, the CoreT2 Duo Processor at the Animal Farm Expo.  RouterMaxx
1106T runs on the MikroTik RouterOS platform and by combining it with the
latest Intel technology, it is the next-generation commercial-grade gigabit
router.  Based on the latest Intel 82574L Gigabit Chipset and utilizing 6
independent Intel gigabit controllers and a multi-core CPU, it's possible to
achieve over 200,000pps.  The product provides performance up to 3 times
faster than MikroTik's flagship product, the RB/1100. RouterMaxx 1106T
competes directly with MikroTik RB/1100, Cisco and LinkTech PowerRouterT.

 

Brian Vargyas, Managing Director at Baltic Networks, said: We felt that
there was a need to bring in the next generation gigabit router to the
market, given that the existing products on the market are all based on the
technology that is either out of date or not providing enough port power for
commercial-grade applications.  Teaming up with MikroTik and MaxxWave, this
next product represents a further step ahead in Baltic Networks' strategy,
aimed at providing low-cost and ready-to-deploy solutions.

 

RouterMaxx 6T Features:

 

- Fanless Desktop Size

- 1U Rackmount Bracket Optional

- Runs RouterOS V5+

- Level 4 RouterOS license included

- 1.6Ghz Dual Core Intel Atom Processor

- 6 Intel 82574L / 82583V Gigabit controllers (Supports Jumbo Frames) 

- 1 GB DDR2 800 RAM

- 1 mPCI-E internal slot for expansion (3G/4G Wireless Cards)

- 2 GB Flash

- 2 USB 2.0 Ports

- 1 RJ45 Console Port (Includes RJ45 to DB9 Console Cable)

- 1 2.5 Open HDD Spaces -- Includes SATA Cables - Use for Web Proxy Cache

- MTBF over 100,000 Hours

- Low power consumption of 15Watts (+2 Watts per port running)

 

Power: 100-240Vac, .5-3A, 50/60Hz  (12Vdc 5A Max)

The 5.2 certs do you no good.  5.25 - 5.35 GHz requires DFS as well for new

The cm9 and xr5 cards are certified for use in the 5.2GHz band
(5.18-5.32GHz) and in the 5.8GHz band (5.745-5.825GHz).

I don't use anything in the 5.4GHz band because that requires DFS

I really don't want to rehash the modular certification argument again.

 Correct. 
 
 If you can come off a large building out of any of the cities here in Ohio 
 that have carrier hotels - you can just backhaul your network right out of 
 the city.
 Cogent for example on their website today is offering $4/meg (for gige commit 
 I bet) 
 
 if TW wants to charge $2100 for 40 Meg ($52.50/meg) you really have to start 
 thinking about why not setup some backhauls to give yourself a better rate. 
 
 Coming from Columbus for example - and getting even $10/meg or Dayton or 
 Cincy for us @ $10/meg allows us to make up the other $42+/- per meg in 
 backhaul costs. 
 
 Lets say for giggles and grins that Time Warner requires a 4 year contract at 
 a rate of $2100 or at a total cost of $100,800
 In turn an agreement from a carrier hotel for Blended bandwidth or even let's 
 say from Cogent at a cost lets say for 40 Meg of $10/meg = $400/mo or $19.200 
 for the same agreement ( 4 years) 
 You really need to debate what the additional $81,600 could mean to your 
 bottom line.
 
 Even setting up multiple links from a carrier hotel - EVEN if it cost you 
 $50K for the links would still place $30K +/-  in your bottom line. 
 
 I could see where some of us that but up against each other could actually 
 build our own Network to assist each other even :-)   but that is a different 
 story
 
 Many will argue that Cogent stinks -   Funny but I feel just the opposite.  
 It is a great product for a good price.
 AND I find they still kick the heck out of Time Warner - but thats just my 
 opinion.

I have one in my office and home. Uses about 50k full duplex per phone
conversation up to 3 so a total of 150kbps full duplex. I do not see a
problem with any of my customers usiung them. Works flawless. Reason Verizon
is telling them it doesn't work with wireless is they are assuming your
wireless is satellite.

area.  I know that you don't have service down there but thought you might
know another provider.  She currently uses verizonwireless but the signal
was so weak I had to install a directional antenna on the roof.  With that,
she now gets -78dB but the speed is still around 300kbps and she pays
$60/month.  Your site claimed a lot better than that.

 

Please let me know what providers you are aware of near her area.  Here is
here address if you need it:

Just to update and close this thread, I have, as of 10/26/10, received a
check from Pasedena Networks (wlanparts.com) for the full amount of what the
dispute was. Frank handled this very promptly and I want to make sure
everyone sees it was taken care of. 

So I would like to apologize on this list for any harsh previous statements
as I look back at the emails they did seem a little harsh and I hope that it
has not hurt his business in any way. I would like to thank Frank for all he
has done and I look forward to possibly placing orders with them in the

Charles,

The owner, Frank, has contacted me about this as of 10 minutes ago. I don't
know what else I could have done here differently. First I sent an email to
wlanparts, (which Frank acknowledged on the list that went un-noticed.)
Second, I tried calling the phone number several times not getting through
and also have Josh verifying as well by posting on list that he couldn't get
through either on 4/27.) And 3rd I made the original thread on 4/27 asking
for anyone if they know whats going on over at wlanparts.com where several
people could have replied back and defended them including the owner Frank
but Josh was the only one that replied. 

So after all that effort I described above tell me what was I supposed to
do? It appears to me I exhausted all potential options. Anyways it doesn't
matter as it appears the issue is being handled now and I am looking forward
to posting on the list that it has been fully resolve as it appears Frank is
now handling the issue himself.

Or its a smear campaign that doesn't hold water.

I've seen that a lot on this list. Usually I stay out of it, but this time I
had to speak up to defend a friend and locally (to me anyway) run company. 

As evidenced by the reply no real effort was made by the op to resolve the
issue. Its easier to just write a nasty email to a professional association
list.

Most of the time a amp will clip the signal on an OFDM radio.  So you do
get amping but not accurate amping.

 

If they make an amp specifically for OFDM then there should be no technical
issues here.

 

Good luck finding one :)

Subject: [WISPA] Amplifiers OFDM: Facts vs Fiction

 

Hi all,  

 

Hope this finds everyone well. I wanted to reach out to the community as
I've had a few birdies in my ear telling me to throw bi-directional
amplifiers on our 3650 gear to reach the FCC limit on omni-directional
antennas. The gear we're thinking about here is a Redline AN100U which has
23dBm output. 

 

I have heard some people tell me that ODFM and amplification is a terrible
thing due to the carriers on the wave and timing. I have also heard people
tell me there should be no problem with this if it is a fast-switching
bi-directional amplifier. None of these people can really provide me
literature or references to site their knowledge or show me actively working
systems. 

 

I know, based on what we've seen with a few acquisitions, that amps dirty
pretty much everything but have gotten people through some difficult
problems. We've got some amps on older DSSS equipment that doesn't work
great but had enabled the previous owner of the company to house his radios
in the hut at the base of the tower. 

 

Any wizards out there that can shed some light on this?

Yeah but are the still going to have the 5GB/month cap? If so we could still
be a viable option to consumers even if our speeds were slower.

The concern I have is in my coverage area Verizon already has 6 towers.  I
doubt they would be to worried about working with me.  What I see is that I
have 2 years to upgrade my equipment to be able to beat Verizon at all
levels.  TVWS could be a real game changer to us being so wooded.  700 Mhz
LTE will already have the advantage.

Just got this from Verizon as a link on a advertisement:

 

Verizon's 4G network will be available in 38 markets and major airports,
covering approximately 100+ million people by the end of the year. We plan
to double that in 2012 and cover our entire existing 3G footprint with 4G
LTE by the end of 2013.

 

Verizon Wireless is aggressively building the nation's first 4G LTE network
across the same footprint that is currently covered by its nationwide 3G
network, which covers more than 90% of the U.S. population. In order to
provide access to this 4G LTE network to more of the U.S. population living
in rural areas, Verizon Wireless plans to work with rural companies to
collaboratively build and operate a 4G network in those areas using the
tower and backhaul assets of the rural company and Verizon Wireless' core
LTE equipment and 700MHz spectrum.

 

Verizon Wireless provides a unique opportunity for selected participants to
leverage the company's technical and spectrum resources. We are seeking
companies that can assist in bringing the benefits of 4G LTE service to
rural areas that currently lack Verizon Wireless coverage. Verizon Wireless
may work with rural companies that have towers and backhaul capabilities,
even if those companies are not currently wireless operators. Together, we
will plan and coordinate a local LTE deployment schedule that makes sense
for both Verizon Wireless and the rural company that we are collaborating
with.

2010-10-21 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
I would NOT recommend anyone ever buy from WLANparts.com. 

I used to purchase things there every six months. My last order I placed an
order for a RB600 and an HPOL 5.8ghz omni. Total order was for like $350 or
so. Got an email from them saying the omni was on backorder. Got the RB600
and waited for a month, didn't hear anything on the omni so I tried sending
an email. They don't have any email address listed on their site, was just
an online form. Tried that twice and never got a response, so I tried
calling the phone number, never got through to anyone, left a couple
messages and never got a return call. 

If I placed the order with a credit card I would have done a merchant charge
back but my order was on my bank debit card so I couldn't. I've never placed
an order with them again... that was over 6 months ago.

2010-10-21 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Charles,

Well I would love to post to this thread saying that the issue was taken
care of, I do not like posting negative stuff to lists about any vendors
ever but I didn't want the same thing to happen to someone else that
happened to me. 

Back on 4/27/10 after this issue occurred I posted to the WISPA general list
titled: wlanparts.com ??? and said Does anyone know what's going on over
at Pasadena Networks? Have not been able to get through on the phone for a
few days and emails aren't being responded too either.

The only response I got back on the list post was from Josh Luthman and he
said he tried calling their number too and couldn't get though. Not a single
other response from anyone else, for all I knew they were going out of
business and appeared nobody else was purchasing from them due to no other
thread responses.

Now if you say you have a way to contact the owner I would very much
appreciate it and tell him it is in reference to order # 2010-04-44416

2010-10-21 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Charles,

The owner, Frank, has contacted me about this as of 10 minutes ago. I don't
know what else I could have done here differently. First I sent an email to
wlanparts, (which Frank acknowledged on the list that went un-noticed.)
Second, I tried calling the phone number several times not getting through
and also have Josh verifying as well by posting on list that he couldn't get
through either on 4/27.) And 3rd I made the original thread on 4/27 asking
for anyone if they know whats going on over at wlanparts.com where several
people could have replied back and defended them including the owner Frank
but Josh was the only one that replied. 

So after all that effort I described above tell me what was I supposed to
do? It appears to me I exhausted all potential options. Anyways it doesn't
matter as it appears the issue is being handled now and I am looking forward
to posting on the list that it has been fully resolve as it appears Frank is
now handling the issue himself.

Or its a smear campaign that doesn't hold water.

I've seen that a lot on this list. Usually I stay out of it, but this time I
had to speak up to defend a friend and locally (to me anyway) run company. 

As evidenced by the reply no real effort was made by the op to resolve the
issue. Its easier to just write a nasty email to a professional association
list.

 Charles,
 
 The owner, Frank, has contacted me about this as of 10 minutes ago. I
 don't
 know what else I could have done here differently. First I sent an
 email to
 wlanparts, (which Frank acknowledged on the list that went un-noticed.)
 Second, I tried calling the phone number several times not getting
 through
 and also have Josh verifying as well by posting on list that he
 couldn't get
 through either on 4/27.) And 3rd I made the original thread on 4/27
 asking
 for anyone if they know whats going on over at wlanparts.com where
 several
 people could have replied back and defended them including the owner
 Frank
 but Josh was the only one that replied.
 
 So after all that effort I described above tell me what was I supposed
 to
 do? It appears to me I exhausted all potential options. Anyways it
 doesn't
 matter as it appears the issue is being handled now and I am looking
 forward
 to posting on the list that it has been fully resolve as it appears
 Frank is
 now handling the issue himself.

 Or its a smear campaign that doesn't hold water.
 
 I've seen that a lot on this list. Usually I stay out of it, but this
 time I
 had to speak up to defend a friend and locally (to me anyway) run
 company.
 
 As evidenced by the reply no real effort was made by the op to resolve
 the
 issue. Its easier to just write a nasty email to a professional
 association
 list.

[WISPA] Tranzeo RMA process lately....

2010-10-12 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Has anyone else been having problems getting Tranzeo RMA's through lately or
even a response from them? I usually only RMA 1 at a time but waited until I
got 4 radios this last time and filled out the RMA and got an email from
their tech saying I must have the radio LED's turned off or something.
(which I can assure you I don't) I emailed them back twice and 2 weeks later
have still gotten no response. Its almost like they are avoiding fixing
these radio's. 

 

I don't even know if people are even buying Tranzeo anymore with Ubiquity
around. Looks like Tranzeo's stock has been tanking the past 12 months, I
suppose that's why my RMA's haven't been coming through..

Oh believe me Josh, I haven't bought a Tranzeo for over a year. (I'm sure
many others haven't either) But these units are still under warranty and for
the price I paid for them ($180/each/CPQ19) when I could have bought 2
ubiquities I think this is ridiculus.

Not sure why you don't just toss the Tranzeo and buy a Ubnt - same features,

First at the interface level, you need to enable WMM. 

Then I set up the following rules which ensures that DSCP sets layer 2
priority WMM needs:

/ip firewall mangle

add action=set-priority chain=prerouting comment=VoIP WMM  disabled=no
new-priority=from-dscp passthrough=yes protocol=\
udp 

Most VoIP services tend to use DSCP of 46.

Then I set a somewhat broadbase firewall/queue rule which basically says UDP
packets should get preference since 99.9% of VoIP is UDP and I make it the
first queue rule before all others. 

/ip firewall mangle add action=mark-packet chain=forward comment=VoIP
disabled=no in-interface=ether1 new-packet-mark=VoIP \
passthrough=no protocol=udp

/queue simple
add burst-limit=0/0 burst-threshold=0/0 burst-time=0s/0s comment=
direction=both disabled=no dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 interface=all \
limit-at=0/0 max-limit=0/0 name=VoIP Traffic packet-marks=VoIP
parent=none priority=1 queue=synchronous-default/synchronous-default \
total-queue=default-small

These rules can be massaged quite a bit to be more specific since a lot of
other apps use UDP too. Some things we'll do to make the rule more specific
is find out the users VoIP provider and then setup the queue based on the
VoIP's IP block.

It would be just about impossible to do. Netflix uses Akamai, and Hulu uses
a mixture of Akamai and Limelight for content delivery services. These are
the same content-delivery services used by just about everyone that has lots
of content to distribute to lots of people (I'm pretty sure Microsoft uses
Akamai for Windows Update, for instance) - Akamai claims they're responsible
for 15 to 20 percent of all Web traffic on any given day, so blocking Akamai
wholesale would probably be the worst idea.

Why?  4.9 Ghz licenses are basically automatic.  If the agency already has

has very little engineering information.

By any - I mean they license they do their dispatch on.

Its OFDM, has the same plastic outer shell as the 430. Far as I know the 430

 We are in the process here to get a license for the local Sheriff

 for 4.9ghz, it is taking way longer than anticipated. The FCC is
 really
 slow. Equipment that we were going to deploy was Motorola PMP-49400.
About
 $1,500 per radio with integrated antenna for 21Mbps aggregate on a 10mhz

   Thanks Ralph. Yeah not looking to pass commercial traffic on this, I
 just didn't know anything about 4.9 and wanted to get some feedback,
 etc., from people just like yourself. Thank you for your response, and
 the others, too.

 The 4.9 band is PUBLIC SAFETY only. I have deployed a lot of it in my
 area
 on surveillance projects for the PD and some at the University of
Georgia
 (for their PD).
 It all has to be licensed and as was said by someone else before it
 CANNOT
 be used for regular ISP stuff.

 That said, I was not impressed with the performance. There seemed to be
a
 lot of interference and I ended up only using 4 links and they were all
 about 2 blocks in length. There's not a lot of certified equipment out
 there
 (don't even THINK about Mikrotik) and what is there is expensive.

 My 2 cents worth from an actual user  :-)

 Hey guys,

 We may be getting into some 4.9Ghz deployments soon and I thought I
 would check with you guys to see what sort of tips and 'gotchas' you may
 know of if you currently are operating in 4.9. We are having a meeting
 soon with the local municipality to see how we can work together to get
 this potentially going for the benefit of everyone in the community.
 Please feel free to email me directly if you'd prefer with any advice or
 tips in working with the local government, what equipment you recommend,
 maybe legal advice, etc.

 I know that's vague, but I hope it's specific enough as well :) ..
 thanks.

I'm not really sure if you're asking about what I looked for in WireShark or
just where is WireShark?  The program I just got from google.  Ultimately I
went to the tower where the problem was and isolated it from the network.
Shut off everyone and turned them on one at a time, the IP Conflict occurred
immediately when that person was on.  I went to their house and the
Bullet(Ubiquiti) wouldn't reset so I pulled it, replaced it and problem
gone... a VERY long weekend!  Let me know if you need any other help.  Those
guys with the shirts that say how bad bridging a large network is are right

Hey whoever forwarded my issue to Brett thanks, he pointed out how to
isolate individual bridges with WireShark. I did that and found the tower,
it's too late today but having that tower down brought the rest of the
system back up. As Marlon said so will you be routed tomorrow? Well maybe
not tomorrow but the switchover from Bridged to Routed is about my highest

Kurt,

Did it fail during a heavy rain/thunderstorm storm and was it directly
exposed without any waterproofing beyond it's own case; yes.  Can I say that
rain caused the failure; maybe or it could have gotten an electrical surge
too, hard to say, it just won't reset and it's junk to me now (I should
point out $89 replacement) .  Would I let that influence if I use UBNT, no,
I love their stuff and nearly 50% of my CPE is now Ubiquiti, the entire
network had the same rain/thunderstorm as the one that failed and performed
admirably.  The problem was that I had a bridged network not one failed
piece of it.

I'm not really sure if you're asking about what I looked for in WireShark or
just where is WireShark?  The program I just got from google.  Ultimately I
went to the tower where the problem was and isolated it from the network.
Shut off everyone and turned them on one at a time, the IP Conflict occurred
immediately when that person was on.  I went to their house and the
Bullet(Ubiquiti) wouldn't reset so I pulled it, replaced it and problem
gone... a VERY long weekend!  Let me know if you need any other help.  Those
guys with the shirts that say how bad bridging a large network is are right
on!

Hey whoever forwarded my issue to Brett thanks, he pointed out how to
isolate individual bridges with WireShark. I did that and found the tower,
it's too late today but having that tower down brought the rest of the

not tomorrow but the switchover from Bridged to Routed is about my highest

Ok, so I have an idea, how about deploying Canopy in the area's where I plan
on putting many AP's so I can use sync to reduce self-interference and then
deploying UBNT in the rural areas where I don't have any other towers nearby
that can hear each other???

Water in a bullet took down my entire network but that was a version 1
release which the water was coming into the LED strip.  This has been fixed.
However, in MY case it was from a failed install where installer boy taped
the omni connector down to the N connector forcing the water column in to
the bullet.

 

A bad install can cause many horrors no matter the manufacturer.  

 

Be brave, my friend.  Save the major mojo.  Try the UBNT stuff.

Curious as to if this bullet had gotten water in it or what. Someone on the
list a while back had a bullet got water in and take down there whole
network. If this is the case I'll factor that in when I consider deploying
UBNT or not.

Re: [WISPA] UBNT thoughts

UBNT is giving me headaches, I have canopy and I am loosing sleep at night
because of the price of this UBNT gear and wondering if I should start
deploying it or not. There is canopy gear out there that is 5 years old and
still in service. Does anyone think that the UBNT gear will last this long
or will it be like the 802.11b stuff in a couple years where you were
basically throwing it all in the trash?

Subject: [WISPA] UBNT thoughts

 

Hi Faisal and the list

 

We have also been using UBNT quite a bit lately over the last couple of
years.  I’m anxious to try some of the 900 and 3.65 when the time is right.

Nano 2 and Nano 5 have been in our arsenal for as long as they have been
out.  Never had a lick of trouble with them other than a WPA issue on the
very first ones. It got fixed quickly in firmware.  

 

Have now been using Nano 5M for some short links as well. They seem to work
well, giving great throughput,  but we have had a couple that want to lock
up. Haven’t put the watchdog on yet.  I think the issue is likely with WPA-
seems like that has been an issue with several manufacturers who use that
chipset.  I think the UBNT forum has some threads on that. We try to keep
them on the latest firmware (and sometimes on the beta ).

 

We have a PowerStation 5 link with 2  2’ dishes going 20+ miles and it just
hasn’t missed a beat.  Recently lightning took out all the Tranzeo and
Deliberant on the tower and only 2 things kept on ticking: The Canopy AP and
the PowerStation 5.  A lot of our old Deliberant and Tranzeo gear is getting
eaten by lightning and some of the Deliberant boxes (the gray ones) are
beginning to leak and corrode inside, so we are switching to UBNT as that
happens.

 

We have a long Rocket 5M link up with 2’ dishes and it works pretty well so
far. Because of the 20 mile distance, we need to increase dish size though.
Signal isn’t good enough to use Airmax.

 

Just put up a tower cluster of 3 Rocket 2 radios/sectors replacing some
Deliberant 2700s. So far so good, but don’t have enough users on it yet to
tell about any issues with the sector patterns.

 

We have never used a piece of uncertified gear!  I value my license (Amateur
one) too much to get involved with illegal activities and the FCC. They tend
to go harshly on Licensees for violations even in other services.  The
Latvians make great routers (we use them almost exclusively) but I wouldn’t
touch their wireless with a 10 foot pole.  There is plenty of reasonably
priced great gear out there whose manufacturers do go the extra distance to
get certified.

 

Just my .02 from a good old Southern boy.

Re: [WISPA] UBNT thoughts

2010-08-08 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Those prices are crazy on the DSL, 15/month without phone line with no
contract, how can any wireless provider compete. However whats going to
happen when they have that many DSL subs with the crosstalk? Will their
service degrade?

 

Also, I have been looking at the Moto PMP430 series and I hear rumors of a
2.4ghz OFDM line coming, (my prayers may be answered).  These products would
be equivalent to the UBNT MIMO in speeds. I’m not too crazy about the UBNT
plastic shell as they just seem of less quality when you stick them side by
side to the Moto gear. I doubt we will be seeing SYNC on the UBNT stuff
anytime soon, might even require a complete new product line. However,
considering the MOTO gear has sync TODAY and the same throughput as UBNT
MIMO and the moto stuff is non-MIMO, I would go with the MOTO because I can
put up an Omni versus the UBNT I need a bunch of sectors. Also if the market
plays like it did with the old Canopy FSK gear at least our equipment will
hold re-sale value if we do have to change it down the road versus the UBNT
I fear you will have a hard time finding someone to give it away too.

Well.

I don't know how things are in Ohio... but in our neck of the woods, things
are getting interesting.

Will high light 3 points, you make your own conclusions.

1. For our area, broadband is pretty much a duopoly .
 Comcast is doing this
http://business.comcast.com/internet/plans.aspx
 Comcast Resi:  1.5m x 384k   $24.95/month 15meg x 3meg $42.95/month

   DSL   Bussiness:

U-Verse Resi :
http://www.att.com/u-verse/explore/internet-landing.jsp 
U-Verse Business
http://smallbusiness.bellsouth.com/uverse_internet.html

ATT  Comcast are now going at it with each other aggressively.. .I just
ordered  Naked Uverse service for 3 residential locations $24.95 each with
$29activation, not install, no contract, no equipment fees, (att will
provide onsite install  router) 12 month promo... for 18meg x 1 meg
service.

2. Our customers are wanting faster internet without having to pay top
dollars for it. the direction things are going in ... in most metro
areas sub 10meg (asymmetric) are most likely going to be the dialup accounts
of yesterday...

3. Questions for WISP's  What technology is available on the shelf, even
half baked that can be deployed in the field that can allow you to deliver
competitive services to your customers ?  If you don't do that. then be
prepared to be marginalized shortly...


Having said that...Our past experience as a Wireline ISP has been that...
3-5 years is a petty good amount of time to get your money's worth from
equipment deployed in the field.. after that much time, you have to start a
technology replenishment cycle..

Based on what I know, today, UBNT has the most affordable, almost working
95%.baked, 802.11n MIMO gear available and is rapidly making improvements...
I also know that there a few other folks feverishly working on getting
802.11n , MIMO radios / drivers / hardware to the market place.. So..
tomorrow is definitely going to be a brighter day for the WISP's... but you
have to start laying out strategy / and planning from now...

We consider ourselves fortunate,   having spent over $10,000 in legacy gear
(Alvarion, Trango, Moto Canoly, Staros) which was NEVER Deployed  (only
tested in the lab..) have choose to start our deployment with the 802.11n
Gear from UBNT..  I am sure we will pay a price for learning, as we go
along, but it is the only stuff that at the moment has the potential to give
us a fighting chance to be able to compete and survive as a decent sized
niche provider.

(ohh.. did I forget to mention.. in our area.. you have to offer phone
services as well.. )

[WISPA] XBOX live, NAT, and UPnP

2010-08-02 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
So does anyone here have any customers that use XBOX live and bark to you
about you NAT? Apparently the XBOX live service is very picky about being
behind any NAT device and its ability to make connections to other servers.
From what I gathered is that the LIVE service uses Universal Plug and Play
(UPnP) to get around this but the question I have is. If your doing
masquerade on a Mikrotik Core Router should you enable UPnP on that device?
Or should I just issue public IP's to the customer that games and let them
worry about it? And if you have UPnP enabled on the core router and then do
a double-NAT through the customers Linksys router with UPnP enable does that
not work because of the double-NAT?

Everything i keep coming up with to make this work ideal according to the 
customer is Im gonna have to sell them a public ip for $10/month *grins* 
and then make sure their CPE is in bridge mode and assign that static to the 
customers router so they can enable UPnP themselves.

 In an ISP environment, the best option really is to disable UPnP if you

 I don't seem to have any issues with double or triple NAT.

 When I was working with MT to fix the upnp issue with Xboxes. I have
 it marked as 4.6 with modifications (it was an unofficial 4.6 they
 gave me) so I would say 4.7 or higher should enable Xbox upnp. Even
 this requires a public IP on the Mikrotik to remove even nice strict
 (I think it's called open?).

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

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

Another thing to check, do you have any switches that do POE? Make sure you 
don't have a CAT5 wire with water getting inside and traveling all the way 
down into your switch and dumping water in there.

 Hi Forbes,

 I agree with Kurt (below), sounds like a layer2 issue.

 I had similar issues in the past, after storms.
 Typically a dumb switch on the network goes bad,
 and causing arp problems.

 Now ... the hard part... how to find which device
 is causing the problem?

 Some ideas:

 1) Try pinging a device on your network that you know is working fine.
 If you can't reach it, then good!  Now immediately dump your arp
 table and look for the mac address of the ip you are trying to ping.
 This mac might be the bad device.  Or at least it might point in the
 right direction (if you're doing proxy-arp on some of your links
 then the bad device may be located on the other side of this mac).

 2) Start up wireshark (or tcpdump) and watch the arp packets.
 Look for a mac address which show up a lot. Dump your arp table
 and see what ip addresses match this mac address.
 Look for arp table entries which have the same mac,
 which is not normal (unless you're doing proxy-arp).

 Doing this may give some clues.  If you have many different
 types of devices on your network, use one of the mac lookup tools
 to find out what kind of device it is, given the mac address:
   http://www.coffer.com/mac_find
 This might help narrow down the device.

 3) Watch the stats on the radios to see which clients or radio links
 have high packet counts.  If there is an arp storm, this may
 help you narrow down which client is causing the storm.
 (ideally do it at a time when your network is normally quiet, like early 
 morning)

 4) Focus on sites where you have dumb switches installed.
 I find these dumb switches often go berserk when zapped.

 5) Focus on sites that have had problems in past storms.
 Chances are higher that they are causing your current problem.
 (in my case these sites are the ones which don't have shielded cat5 or
 are poorly grounded)

 6) If your network covers a large geographical area and
 the storm was localized then focus on looking for the bad
 device in the area where the storm hit hard.

 Good luck.

 John

Re: [WISPA] Lightening protection

2010-07-27 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
I had a problem customer than was always getting CPE Ethernet knocked out.
Switched to shielded CAT5 with a pac wireless POE adapter that grounds the
jacket through the 3rd prong ground of the house plug and problem went away.
Also it helps if the pole the the CPE is mounted to is grounded as well. If
its on a roof you may have to run a ground wire to the pole to dissipate
static.

I have a couple of POPs that are silos.  Several of them are old
concrete silos with metal domes.  The top of the dome is more than 10'
above the top of the concrete.  I have been mounting with 10' pipe on
the ladder side and not servicing customers on the back side.  It has
also worked out that the backhauls are on the ladder side as well.
This year the trees seem to be growing a lot more leaves than in the
past.  I have a couple of silos that I need to get the backhaul higher
than the 10' mast will allow.  If I can get above the dome, I could
also increase the covereage area.
So, the question is, for those of you using silos, how to you get above
the dome?

n type connectors are NOT water proof!  They WILL get water into them.

What happens is the sun comes out and warms up the connector.  Then it rains

on it, quickly cooling the connector off.  That creates a vacuum inside the 
connector, sucking a bit of water inside.

I've literally seen mold growing inside connectors that weren't taped or 
taped right.

Try this.  Put your connection (use a toss away one) inside the dish washer.

Then toss it into the freezer.  Back to the dish washer, then set it in cold

water.  Then the oven, back to cold water.  Might use some salt water too, 
that'll speed up any corrosion.

If you get ANY water showing up in the connector you've got to do a better 
job of sealing it.

I just took down a competitor's tower site at a farmer who fired them. 
They didn't seal the connector at the top of the tower.  Water got into the 
coax and drifted 50' down the tower, into the box and rusted the amp that 
they were using at the bottom of the tower!

EVERYTHING outside needs to be sealed up at these frequencies.

Good luck!  grin

 Marco,

 I took your advice on the Polyphaser and came up with a way to put it on
 without adding extra coax. Just screwed the Poly directly to the antenna. 
 So
 it's grounded through the antenna mount itself. I sealed the bottom
 connection but not the top, I know, I probly should have but I was looking
 at the top connection and I see absolutely no way water can get into the
 center pin. Even if it starts to fill up in the connector it will quickly
 drain out of there before it fills up high enough to go over the wall to 
 get
 into the center connector. I tightened the top connector down pretty good
 with a wrench also so we'll see...

 BTW the zip ties are temporary! Forgot to grab two hose clamps and I'll be
 up tomorrow for the 900mhz AP and antenna and I'll get it then.

I hear ya Kurt.

Not sure about the 900mhz part.

In my mind the problem isn't only the moisture, it's also the corrosion that

comes with it.  900 handles water better than 2.4 or 5 gig does, very true. 
But a corroded connector isn't going to work as well as a clean one.  And 
it's not like the old VHF days when we had tens or hundreds of watts to play

with and only voice, that no one expected to sound perfectly, to transport.

Me?  I just don't buy devices that I can't weather seal.  I tell 
manufactures that all of the time.  I don't care if you can give me a $5.00 
radio that will deliver 200mbps to home users at 50 miles on the other side 
of a mountain, if I can't make it reliable I just can't use it these days. 
Internet is no longer a toy used for sending the occasional email and 
downloading one's favorite songs.

I've tried silicone in a situation like that but there is something inside 
it that will actually speed up the corrosion inside the connector.  So far 
the best thing I've found is to take the offending device to a machine shop 
and modify it.  And/or use jumpers so you've got more room to work with.

Have fun!

 Then toss it into the freezer.  Back to the dish washer, then set it in 
 cold

 water.  Then the oven, back to cold water.  Might use some salt water too,
 that'll speed up any corrosion.

 If you get ANY water showing up in the connector you've got to do a better
 job of sealing it.

 I just took down a competitor's tower site at a farmer who fired them.
 They didn't seal the connector at the top of the tower.  Water got into 
 the
 coax and drifted 50' down the tower, into the box and rusted the amp that
 they were using at the bottom of the tower!

 EVERYTHING outside needs to be sealed up at these frequencies.

 Good luck!  grin

 Marco,

 I took your advice on the Polyphaser and came up with a way to put it on
 without adding extra coax. Just screwed the Poly directly to the antenna.
 So
 it's grounded through the antenna mount itself. I sealed the bottom
 connection but not the top, I know, I probly should have but I was 
 looking
 at the top connection and I see absolutely no way water can get into the
 center pin. Even if it starts to fill up in the connector it will quickly
 drain out of there before it fills up high enough to go over the wall to
 get
 into the center connector. I tightened the top connector down pretty good
 with a wrench also so we'll see...

 BTW the zip ties are temporary! Forgot to grab two hose clamps and I'll 
 be
 up tomorrow for the 900mhz AP and antenna and I'll get it then.

[WISPA] 900mhz co-locate with farm RTK

2010-06-13 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Does anyone here have any 900mhz Canopy co-located on the same tower with a
farmers Real Time Kinetics for the GPS in the tractors? I know they use
900mhz and I talked to the company here local that put the RTK on the tower
and they claim that they had stuff on a tower once with another ISP doing
900mhz Canopy and the ISP said that he could not tell of any interference to
his customers or AP but the guys tractors wouldn’t receive for about ¼ mile
around the site that the Canopy equipment was on. I have a site where I am
thinking of deploying Canopy on and I can get 10 feet of horizontal
separation from the RTK antenna but can’t get any vertical separation.

You can't use a fiberglass omni at the top of a tower and expect it to
survive a strike unless it has a copper groundrod built inside of it
protruding from the top in which it was designed to take a strike. Learned
this from various HAM radio operators. Only 2.4ghz omni I know of that has a
metal frame and can survive direct strikes are slotted waveguides such as
the various H-POL omni's you see. If I'm going to use a VPOL omni I make

 We have extensive knowledge and have used Trango, Ubiquiti, MikroTik,

 Hey all,

 I've got what appears to me to be a dumb question, but I'm all out of good
 answers right now.

 We've got mostly all Alvarion stuff on our WISP Network - All bridged,
 including the backhauls. The entire network is addressed @ 10.0.100.x for
 management / monitoring purposes, and has been running fine. (Our Public 
 IP
 address space is 98.100.x.x)

 We recently added a Tranzeo AP, and (1) client at a new POP - Addressed 
 them
 into our 10.0.100.x Network and set the client up. Signal is great, but
 we've had nothing but problems at this location. It will run for a short
 while, then drop off, then come back, etc. (And on, and on..) While
 testing we discovered we can ping the 10.0.100.x address, and / or stay
 logged onto the radio consistently, but the Router on the Public IP drops
 off. We've swapped Radios / Routers / Switches / Etc. - The only constant 
 is
 the Tranzeo link. (The Client at the POP that we're broadcasting from work
 flawlessly - It's a Ubiquity Bridge Link.) There's the scenario, here's 
 the
 question.

 Is there a problem with me addressing the Tranzeo Radios in the
 10.0.100.x? Arp Table problems?

Most people,if they can raise the  $200 to setup and another $45 for the 1st
month, or $245 up front, will pay their bills.

Every time I fall for a sob story about the install price, the client

 SuperPass is an excellent antenna brand. The founder has several unique
 patents in antenna technologies, that other antenna manufacturers would
 love

 to get their hands on. There are several uique end results they offer...
1)
 They tend to make it possible to make shorter antennas for similar gain.
 For example with 5.x sectors, the make some of the most compact sector
 antennas on the market. 2) They can make them very cost effectively, and
 still have them perform well.  These are great for repeaters, where there
 is

 a low budget, and cosmetics and size is a concern, and closer to the
ground
 where less durable mounts are perfectly acceptable.

 Now everybody cant be everthing to everybody. Just like anything else
 in

 this industry, and Provider needs to define what they need and pick an
 antenna that matches their specific need.  SuperPass is NOT a MTI antenna,
 they really serve two different market segments.

 MTIs are EXPENSIVE and LARGE and HEAVY, the exact opposite of a Superpass
 antenna.  Of course the MTI is going to outperform the Superpass in most
 cases. The MTI was purpose built to get optimal RF characteristics out of
 the technology, and the trade off is expense, size, and weight. But the
MTI
 makes a VERY high quality antenna, if not one of the very best, from the
 perspective of RF pattern, isolation, and sturdiness.

 In 900Mhz, our personal favorite are the Tiltek sector antennas. We like
 them because they have excellent front to back isolation and quick drop on
 beamwidth edge comparatively, have rock solid mounting hardware thats easy
 to adjust, and priced a bot lower than other high end antennas. We find
 Winncom to be a good source for these, although I'm sure there are other
 good sources.   The Tilteks have both a Dual Pol and Single pol options. I
 dont think its possible to buy a better antenna. Again, with quality, also
 comes size.  This is a 4ft by 1.5ft antenna at about 10db for 120deg.
 (Thats

 not exact db spec)

 There also becomes a convenience factor to consider. We Almost always use
 the Trango built in antennas when we can, and I've heard that people using
 Canopy  are happy with the Canopy brand integrated 900Sector.

 When the sectors quality reallty starts to matter is when trying to
 colocatemultiple antennas near each other to get full 360 degrees.
 With the Tilteks, we can get 3 120degree sectors of the same polarity
 colocated without self interference (meaning all on adjacent channels),
 fasten directly to a Guyed tower structure (meaning very little horizontal
 seperation, maybe 3ft)  if we put about 15ft of verticle seperation
between
 each antenna.

 Originally, we put them back to back, which worked way better than the
 other

 native antennas could. The excellent F/B ratio and tight beamwidth made
 that

 possible.  But as our buildout grew, and we had more links and varying
 signal strengths, and more close to beamwidth edges than others, we
 recognized a clear improvement when we added the verticle seperation also.

 To start out with, I have heard nothing but bad news about Super Pass. I 
 have never used them, so I am NOT speaking from experience. I am also a 
 80% or more Canopy shop...so take that as you will. For Canopy, I have 
 used 120 degree H-pol Tiltek sectors...they work !@@@!...@!@ great! But they

 are expensive I am one to buy the close to what I think is best first 
 and worry about the consequences later. I sleep better.

 Now in your situation, the Super Pass may work great? The only 900 Mhz I 
 have used is Canopy. Canopy supposedly has the magic sauce of GPS timing. 
 On the Tiltek sectors, with Canopy, I have customers out to 10.5 miles 
 away and could have further but that is the the MAX AP distance that is 
 set on my Moto 900 AP's.

 If you are trying to go PTP, I can offer you some suggestions on things 
 much cheaper. If you are going to try PtMP, my suggestion will be Canopy 
 unless you expect less than 20 subs.

Yes I have used the R5H and LOVE IT. Very nice card and a good price. I
think it performs better than the XR5. However some people say that the card
burns up easily but I run them all locked at 20db power output for all the
modulation rates. I do this for two reasons. First so that the signal level
stays consistent across all the rates, and Second, if they do have an issue
with burning up, I'm running them at 1db under their rated power output so
I'm not stressing the power amplifier built into the card. Also don't ever
power them up without an antenna attached I've heard that makes them burn up
as well. I have not had any such problems at all.

Re: [WISPA] MT PtP

2010-04-28 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
Some people say there is 1db or 2db loss on the pigtail due to the MMCX
connector. This is not the MMCX connectors fault but it is due to the
connector being a right angle connector. I finally caught on to this when
I was testing a right angle barrel N-connector versus a straight barrel
N-connector. Anything with a right angled connector was showing a loss of
1-2db. Switched to straight-MMCX connectors and gained a couple db on all
links. 

And this right angled connector loss is present on EVERYTHING from cable TV
to VHF/UHF land mobile radio's. I put a right angled F-connector adapter on
a cable TV coax once and the TV screen went from clear to fuzzy. 

I won't use right angle connectors on anything anymore no matter what it is,
wireless internet or whatever.

Oh, no, not the MMCX!  That stupid U.fl crap.  Love the MMCX.

All my MT cards are u.fl, I couldn't afford the MMCX MT.  Crazy premium for
good connectors.

Mmcx connector popped off???

 I've had two burn out from the connector popping off for whatever reason.
I
 learned to tape them on after that.  But even with that, I finally pulled
 them all down.  But they really do make for a great dual band card for
 laptops, the R52H ones, that is.  Since we run both 2.4 and 5.8 I can see
 everything with them.

 Yes I have used the R5H and LOVE IT. Very nice card and a good price. I
 think it performs better than the XR5. However some people say that the
card
 burns up easily but I run them all locked at 20db power output for all the
 modulation rates. I do this for two reasons. First so that the signal
level
 stays consistent across all the rates, and Second, if they do have an
issue
 with burning up, I'm running them at 1db under their rated power output so
 I'm not stressing the power amplifier built into the card. Also don't ever
 power them up without an antenna attached I've heard that makes them burn
up
 as well. I have not had any such problems at all.

 Have you used the r5h?  The r52n is very disappointing.

 What 350mw card are you using? I wouldn't use anything less than XR5 or
 R5H
 because their receive sensitivity is so much better. Plus you will use
 MMCX
 connectors with these two cards which is going to save you a lot of
 headaches over u.fl. Also definitely turn on N-stream. I had a link that
 was
 bouncing around between 75-90% ccq and couldn't ever get it up higher
than
 that. As soon as I turned on N-stream my ccq went to 100/100%. And
 modulation locks itself at 54/54 all day long.

 I want to setup an MT point to point using two MT 411 boards, 350mw cards
 and a 23db rootena. Distance is 7km. Is there anything I need to tweak or
 watch out for? New to MT. I have setup a basic link and tested in the
 office.

 Thanks

Re: [WISPA] Antenna Mast/Tower

2010-04-28 Thread Kurt Fankhauser
I can drive to American Tower from my house and get there in 20 minutes :) 

If you are looking for anything that's not an actual tower check out this
company. http://www.skywalker.com/ 

I use them for roof mounts, mast mounts, and any other kind of mount you
didn't even know existed they have it.

For me every install is different so other than the j-arm mounts, it's a
crap shoot on what we need.  I keep my eye out for used tower sections and
even knock on doors to see if I can have old American Tower TV towers that
are no longer needed.  Plus the local scrap yard keeps an eye out too so for
me, it's just about anything that will go up and stay up.

We are looking into a mast/tv tower type product for our client 
installations, I'm interested what others are using to accomplish this 
today. Looking for the best compromise between low cost and labor.
