Re: [WISPA] Gigabit Router or L3 Switch?

2011-02-04 Thread Mike Bushard Jr
I'd look at Imagestream or Vyatta. Cisco, like you say is pretty high priced
(You'd probably want a ASR1K). I love my Foundry routers, but they don't do
services (Great at moving packets though) i would look to a CER from
Foundry, but price will still be higher than you may want, think 10k.

 Realistically I don't think they'll use that all of the time, probably in
 the 500-750Mbps range. No clue on average packet size.

 You could use an ImageStream Rebel router for a WHOLE LOT less than the
 Cisco:

 I have a customer that needs a router capable of routing up to 1Gbps of
 traffic - ATT Ethernet handoff. Should only really need 1 WAN port and
 1 LAN port. What's everyone else using? They have shunned the idea of a
 RouterMaxx or PowerRouter. They prefer to stick with Cisco, Adtran, or
 Foundry.

 Cisco doesn't seem too cost effective; the only thing I've found that
 will run that much traffic is a 7206 with a G2. Anything newer and we're
 in the $20k-$40k range.

 Should I be looking at Layer 3 switches? They shouldn't need any
 firewall or filtering on this device.

Re: [WISPA] Competitor at -40

2009-10-16 Thread Mike Bushard Jr
Well, our conglomerate of dealers isn't too ad to work with, but in our area
they are running right at 4 watts EIRP. I got them to agrre to turn them off
after harvest. They just came in and putt htis stuff up, told the farmer it
wouldn't hurt us at all. I think the biggest issue is that we are on the
same structure, so our yagis ar pointed right at their antenna too. they are
running vertical here, and we run horizontal, but it is still enough to take
us into 1X. they claim they cannot program the hop frequencies. they also
did say that JD is coming out with a new radio this spring and they have
some big incentives to upgrade. the dealer didn't know what frequency it
was, but he said he had to register each site with the FCC. could be
whitespace i suppose, but i didn't think that anything was ready there yet,
otherwise 3650 comes to mind.

The machinery only needs to receive 1 of 10 transmissions, so they can deal
with a lot.

Re: [WISPA] Ceragon, DragonWave and whatelse?

2009-01-17 Thread Mike Bushard Jr
DragonWave has their Horizon Duo, which is a split mount system. If you
enable the second radio in the unit you take a pretty TX power hit though.
No 6ghz radio though, which you will want at 20-25 miles. I had a ton of
problems with my 2 Airpair 11Ghz links. Knock on wood, they have been
running for about a year now though.

Ceragon makes a very good radio, but lead times for 6 and 11ghz high power
stink. I put an order in at the end of October and have really been hounding
them. I should have the rest of my order next week. I bought 5 links, 4
11ghz and 1 6ghz, all high power. If you don't want/need high power it
should be better. I bought IPMAX2 HP because I can move the RFU's indoors if
I want and gain another 3db of TX power.

I also would look at Nera. They have a radio that is pretty nice. No 256qam
or hitless adaptive modulation yet, but price and delivery seem to be
reasonable. Nera also seems to have the best system gain in the market,
102db.

DragonWave will probably be cheapest, but they don't have a split mount 6ghz
radio. No experience with Nera yet, but I plan to this year. I really think
Ceragon has the complete package at this time, but getting equipment is like
pulling teeth.

My 2 cents anyway.

Subject: [WISPA] Ceragon, Dragonwave and whatelse?

Dear All,

we are considering to move to licensed frequencies for back hauling and
therefore some hints would be really appreciated. We are looking at 2
main manufacturers (Ceragon/Dragonwave) so the problem is which one
fits better for our needs?

Just to summarize:

a) links are around 20-25 miles
b) antennas: the smaller the better
c) robustness is very important
d) average life: 3 years

From what I have read in the data sheets I have done the following
considerations:

1) Dragonwave Horizon is nice but only if your site is well protected
from sabotage and stealing. The all outdoor approach is nice but it
has the drawback that if somebody takes the whole unit they will have a
brand new unit working. With the IDU/ODU approach they will have only
half of the banknote, so after the first or second time, they will not
spend time having something useless.
2) Dragonwave Horizon can be a problem if you don't use fiber from the
unit down to your switch. In few words, we have sites with huge amount
or EM fields, so even using shielded cables (e.g. Belden 1300A) we get
only few ethernet megabits. So we should use fiber to go up the tower,
but maybe be IDU/ODU approach is more robust (comments welcome).
3) All outdoor means that when you have to re-use the devices somewhere
else, you have to buy a whole new thing instead of just swapping the ODU.
4) In any case the (all outdoor or IDU/ODU) when the tower is frozen
(and when I mean frozen I mean a whole block of ice) then it does not
change much, you have to wait the better season to work on that.
5) Performances look more or less the same.
6) I don't know much about prices, I have looked on some website, I am
still exploring this aspect
7) Is anybody using the software-switch capabilities on this devices or
just using them as transparent bridges for your router/switch? Do you
need to reset them often?

Comments are welcome.

Am I missing some other good brand?

Thank you.

(I see the company has a newer model out now called the Air Breeze,  
rated at 200watts)

He also links to another test site: http://www.detronics.net/ 
airx_report.pdfThey have another report that lists the advantages  
of running a combination of wind+solar to balance things out over the  
year. But I think this is highly variable, depending on an area's  
sunshine and windspeed.

ATT will use the 700 Band for LTE, or/and MediaFlo. I highly doubt this

2.5 billion?  Oh brother.

Just what anyone needed.  Now there will be even more spectrum with no 
services offered.

And people are going to think, again, that they can just buy spectrum and 
make money from that.

Hi all,

I am looking for a licensed link to replace a fiber connection.   I am 
currently paying for a 100meg fiber connection between two of my towers 
and would like to replace it with my own infrastructure.  I own the 
towers on both sides, there is plenty of LOS and the link distance is 
2.9 miles.  The connection currently peaks out at about 30 meg, but I'm 
planning to put remote backup servers on the far side, so I'd like to be 
able to maintain 100meg speeds.

I am interested in finding out what kind of radios people are using for 
this type of link.  The fiber connection costs me $500/month, and I'd 
like to be able to pay for the link within 2.5 years, so that puts a  
$12-15K  price range on it.Vendors, feel free to contact me off-list 
about this one.

WiMax is sure getting lots of press.  Especially at CES.  Funny, they are 
talking up the Sprint roll out but Sprint has bailed.  Still smoke and

buzz.

While blathering on here, a business mentor told me long ago to contribute 
to all candidates for local office, not just the one you like.
I guess that applies to email lists as well.  Not saying I don't like WISPA,

just never have taken the time to participate.  I believe I am a sponsor but

on the home page I don't see any sponsor info.  I may not be looking in the

In any event, I guess I will be on two lists now.  Any bets on what is going

 And then I sometimes also say  What we have been doing , going into our

 Sometimes people actually ask about WiMAX, and we explain it to them,
 but it's not easily understood, the difference.

  Finding myself explaining about licensed and unlicensed spectrum and
 standards that aren't set is not an easy conversation, unless the person
 is technically savy.

 So I keep it simple.

 I find myself referring to WiMAX when describing our service.

 We use the term broadband to describe our service. When asked to
 explain the difference between our broadband and the others, it's
 getting easy to say you have heard of WiMAX right?  well this is what
 we do we use microwave to reach you rather than use the telephone or
 cable company.

 Now they think abit, and WiMAX and WiFi are similar sounding and most
 have heard the terms, so they sort of get it, but most importantly, they
 are very accepting of the technology.

 So I like WiMAX and I like finally hearing a name that describes and
 differentiates us from other technologies.

Do your radios have sub channelization?

I Congratulate you on the build, but I have to question if stuff like this
is not part of the total misunderstanding of WiMAX (what it is and isn't). I
really don't think WiMAX is the right term, Maybe WiMAX based, but it
definitely is not WiMAX.

We just turned up our first WiMAX base station today. Running 2.5Ghz and
using 16e ready hardware. I'm Not trying to steal glory here, just making a

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



One Ring Networks To Rollout New WiMAX Service
And Provide the Atlanta Metro Market with New Wireless Offerings

ATLANTA (January 9, 2008) - One Ring Networks announced today that it 
will be launching WiMAX service in the Atlanta Metro area using licensed 
spectrum it was recently granted.  The grant which gives One Ring access 
to 50Mhz of spectrum between 3650Mhz and 3700Mhz has favorable 
propagation characteristics.  WiMAX is a wireless technology which 
allows broad coverage with data-rich connectivity unlike Wi-Fi which is 
unlicensed and limited to small hot-spots.  One Ring will couple this 
spectrum with WiMAX equipment to offer a wide array of wireless business 
offerings.  By using the company's existing and extensive wireless 
infrastructure, the entire metropolitan Atlanta area and surrounding 
cities can expect to see new, economical, and innovative offerings as a 
result of the company's WiMAX network.

One Ring has aggressive rollout plans that will bring WiMAX to all major 
Atlanta sub-markets in 2008. Additionally, the company has plans for a 
multi-market initiative to expand the reach of its services to 
businesses throughout select metropolitan markets.  Our new WiMAX 
offering will allow us to provide Atlanta businesses with a whole new 
value proposition, said Matt Liotta, CEO of One Ring Networks. 
Businesses across metro Atlanta are increasingly discovering the 
limitations of T1s and the need for truly diverse telecommunication 
services.

In the United States, an estimated 2 percent of buildings have access to 
fiber. That means 98% of businesses don't have any access alternative. 
As a fiber and fixed-wireless provider, One Ring now has the 
infrastructure to offer access solutions to both large and small 
businesses regardless of their proximity to fiber.Companies often 
struggle with business continuity issues related to their telecom 
infrastructure, said Kris Maher, Director of Sales for One Ring 
Networks.  Most businesses can't afford a fiber build and are excited 
to learn about a wireless solution. One Ring's deployment of WiMAX 
technology will emerge as an alternative broadband solution for a range 
of business services where deployment of landline-based technologies is 
cost prohibitive.

About One Ring Networks
One Ring Networks operates one of the largest hybrid fiber-fixed 
wireless networks in the United States and is one of the few carriers 
offering end-to-end telecommunications and networking services that are 
truly diverse. Over its state-of-the-art network, One Ring offers 
high-speed data services and feature-rich IP phone services.

Say Ralph, I don't suppose your offer extends to others?

I've looked at Radio Mobile a few times, but didn't want to invest  
the time to figure it out.  My current method involves using google  
earth, drawing a line between the two points, then sliding the cursor  
along it to see elevations (while sort of watching the vegetation).   
Not exactly scientific!

If you don't mind doing a path analysis for me, here's one:

Site A:  42°55'59.62N 84°14'55.80W   I'm using a grain leg here.

Site B:  43° 0'15.15N 84°11'37.26W   ( I can get a gigabit  
ethernet connection here -- well, could only afford 5Mbit, but  
still ...)

I would need to build a tower at site B, but how high does it need to  
be?   It is only a 5.5 mile jump, and the elevation doesn't change  
much, so I would think 70' might work (enough to clear the trees,  
plus some). The grain leg is about 80', the connection would be  
5.8GHz.

If you would be willing to run Radio Mobile with this, I would love  
to see the results. Might encourage me to spend more time with it.

And if not, well thanks for your time and happy new year!

900Mhz can handle roughly 60-70 subs per AP. Now this all depends on the
packages being offered, how much each sub uses their connection, etc.

2.4Ghz would be the best bet it have Line of sight to all the rooftops. Then
you can run 100+ per AP.

Was hoping some one might comment on what the typical max subscriber
loading per Canopy 900 Mhz AU might be, assuming a per sector loading,
or a simple omni config.
I have been asked by a friend to evaluate the local ISP's ability to
service his new cottage development (350 lots) vs the option of building
out his own network to service his residents and some additional planned
development in the vicinity.
Incumbent provider is running 900 Mhz Canopy (~6.5 miles to tower).
Irrespective of the fact some of the coverage region comes up pretty
iffy, particularly when trees are introduced amongst the cottage lots,
my suspicion is there's going to be a need for additional infrastructure
based solely on current capacity requirements (150 lots initially).
Appreciate all comments, and thanks for all the great reading in the
past (have been in R.O. for some time).

RE: [WISPA] 3650 PtMP vs. 2.4 PtMP

2007-11-21 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
It does matter though. If the rules state that you can not do something,
don't do it, it is really simple. I never read the rules, and never applied
for one. The thing people need to understand is the FCC is probably the last
person, next to the IRS, that you want watching you. The FCC knows what was
going on, and they took notes I am sure, someday it could come to bite all
of us in the but..

As I remember the rules for the experimental license applications, it 
specifically says that they can't be used for commercial purposes.

But it really doesn't matter, the FCC knew what was being done with the 
bands and wanted to see what would happen anyway.

 An experimental license allows you to test systems, spectrum, or
 techniques that otherwise aren't normally allowed.

 I know of a number of service providers that used their 3650
 experimental licenses for commercial service. As I understand it,
 commercial operations aren't DISALLOWED by the Part 5 experimental
 license rules. What those rules DO state is that the Part 5 license
 doesn't give you any special preference whatsoever when the FCC deems
 that the period of your experimental license is up... like it would be
 now that the 3650 rules are set and commercial service is commencing.

 Those experimental deployments that I heard about were PMP for
 backhaul and for access for business customers; I haven't heard of any
 3650 residential deployments, though that would be feasible using 3.5
 Fixed WiMAX CPE that has been updated for 3650 rules.

 It was kept pretty quiet, except with the vendors that were supplying
 experimentally compliant 3650 gear, but there were MANY larger
 Broadband Wireless Internet Access Service Providers who used
 experimental licenses similar to Covad's rationale quoted in Dylan
 Oliver's message. While all those deployments had to be similarly
 couched in yes, we acknowledge it's experimental... language, they
 all used such systems for commercial, revenue service... THAT was the
 experiment - to see if it was feasible, economical, and reliable. It
 worked; looks like 3650 will be quite the success, especially with the
 mandated coordination / non-interference between competing service
 providers in urban areas.

 Thanks,

 Steve

 Those of that have using experimental licenses only got to test things
 such as propagation. We where not allowed to provide commercial

 certainly not going to admit to it on a public list. Therefore, your

I would also like to note that apparently the APC  isn't a true 24v...  one

Guys,

Now I'm looking at the fiddly-bits that I've

It has occurred to me that you must have

I've seen a few mounts that are basically a
pipe hanger bracket and a hunk of tubing,
while there are others that are much more
along the lines of SatTV dish installs.

Advise of any kind will be warmly welcomed.

My selection criteria has and always will be,

 Maximum bang for minimum practical bucks.

I see no future in buying stuff that
will have to be replaced in a year or
two. That's penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Thanks to all in advance.

Subject: RE: [WISPA] Alvarion VL TRUTH

I realize that others have chimed in with respect to performance, I
wanted to officially weigh in on this post with respect to pricing for
the BreezeACCESS VL product line.

The lowest cost way for a WISP to access BreezeACCESS VL is via the
AlvarionCOMNET cooperative program. This program does require some level
of quarterly quantity commitment, but that commitment is very low. The
lowest commitment level is only 10 CPE per quarter and that 10 units can
be made of any combination of 5.3, 5.4 and/or 5.8 GHz CPE. At that level
the price per CPE is only $399 and that includes a full integrated unit
with built-in 19 dBi antenna and the 20-meter shielded outdoor PoE
cable. There is no need with these units to buy reflectors since the
included antenna is already high gain. These units also include
hardware-based AES (meaning AES can be activated with almost no hit to
capacity, unlike those versions that only enable software-based AES and
even that comes as an add-on cost). These units also have Alvarion
only type advanced features like per CPE distance learning (the AU
talks to each CPE at a different power level, enough to maintain the
desired performance), adjustable noise floor setting, 3rd generation
MIR/CIR and tons of other features that have been listed on this list
before.

While commitments can be any number 10 or higher, additional price
breaks trip per the following levels:

Minimum 25 units/quarter: $349
Minimum 50 units/quarter: $325
Minimum 100 units/quarter: $299
Minimum 300 units/quarter: $275

Also, if one signs at any number 25 of higher per quarter we give a
signing incentive bonus of your choice of either:
- 10 free capacity upgrades for CPE ($1,750 value)
- One free upgrade to convert an AUS (I'll explain what that is in a
moment) to a full AU (MSRP $3,300)
- One free WLP VoIP optimization software upgrade (works on the AU and
supports all associated CPE to that AU) (MSRP $2,395)

These choices are offered with only a 25 unit commitment and if one
signs at 50 then the choices doubles, at 100 the choices quadruple,
etc., so basically each 25 brings another free choice. 

The freebies are also given to members upon referral of another WISP
into the program.

Also, the AlvarionCOMNET program provides for very low cost capacity
upgrades for CPE that can be purchased at any time and in any quantity.
An upgrade from 3 Mbps 1 MAC (3 Mbps net down/2 Mbps net up) to a 6 Mbps
full bridge (6 Mbps net down/ 4 Mbps up) is a fixed $175. An upgrade
that can take a 6 Mbps unit to a 54 Mbps (32 Mbps net) unit is a fixed
$250. In order to understand the savings there, consider that a 54 Mbps
CPE is typically $1,995 retail. Through the program the maximum would be
$824 ($399 + $175 + $250). The idea here is that you do not have to pay
for more capacity unless you need it and the subscriber is willing to
pay for it.

Additionally, the program has mechanisms that create further price
reductions based on the collective volume of the entire cooperative (the
entire set of all member CPE shipped each quarter). The additional
discounts are automatic and are tripped at various levels.

I should note also that no billing occurs until the CPE ships each
quarter, so there is no advance payment required. When your ship date
pops up each quarter (a date you set), then the units are drop shipped
directly to you and the billing happens at that point.

So what about infrastructure (the AU side)? These units are not part of
the program and are purchased normally through your selected
AlvarionCOMNET VAR and at any time per your need. There are two types of
AUs. The full AU supports all capacity versions of CPE. AUs ship with
your choice of sector antenna and they provide net throughput of 32 Mbps
(ftp) at the highest modulation. This unit retails for about $5k and the
discount you can expect is something you should inquire about with your
VAR.

The second AU option is called an AUS and it is designed for more rural
markets. The AUS retails for about $2,500 and it supports up to 25 CPE
and can connect to 3 and 6 Mbps CPE versions. It provides the same net
capacity

Those are a couple things I really wish Canopy had.  Why should the
AP/AU transmit at full power to talk to an SM just down the block.
Its RF polution.  Also, why charge extra for AES when its a free
protocol and its less CPU intensive then DES by design.

RE: [WISPA] Alvarion VL TRUTH

2007-11-10 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
We have some VL in the air, real noisy area. We had to run 10Mhz channels on
H-POL, so we see 11-12Mbps net TCP throughput. We run VOIP on it also, Works
very well. I think we paid somewhere around 4000 per AU, and 399 per
SU-A-5.8-6-BD-VL hardware Rev E. I honestly like it better than Canopy. We
just install it and forget it. This stuff just plain works. Now if only they
would make VL in 2.4Ghz and 900Mhz.

I need to hear from a WISP that's BOUGHT and USES Alvarion VL equipment.

I need to hear real world pricing info, quantities, etc.

If anyone can hit me off list, I'd like to throw a few emails back and
forth.

I'm wondering if my little town coverage project, which was going to be
all cheap wifi equipment, would be better served by using VL as the
backbone / heavy customer equipment.

Got some other wonders...

 All,

 Bear in mind, Clearwire uses their own base station technology,
 which is mostly Nextnet base stations ( now motorola ) . Nextnet's
 performance is not wimax, just really high power base stations and  
 CPE.

 4 QAM / 2 WATT output power / 8dbi directional antenna on the CPE
 and I think around 10 watts on the base in power?

 ( originally was nextnet, then mccaw bought them for 50 million, then
 sold it to Motorola in exchange for 500 million in investment )

ROADSTAR’S NEW INET LOUDOUN WIRELESS BROADBAND SERVICE ‘A ROCKET SHIP’
ULTRA-HIGH SPEED CONNECTIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR LOUDOUN BUSINESSES!
LEESBURG, VA (October 8, 2007) – Marty Dougherty, CEO of Roadstar Internet,
the area’s largest Independently-owned Wireless Broadband Internet provider,
announced today the company has successfully completed field trials of its
new INET Loudoun™ service. He said that Roadstar began full-scale deployment
of the wireless-fiber network recently and customers may now sign up for
service in its OnNet™ designated buildings.
Dougherty said Roadstar plans to connect hundreds of buildings to the INET
Loudoun network within the next 18-24 months. 

John Wood, CEO of Loudoun County based Telos Corporation, one of the first
INET Loudoun trial sites, said, “Rather than calling it ‘INet Loudoun,’ I
think a better name … is ‘Rocket ship Loudoun.’”
INET Loudoun service shatters all previous boundaries businesses faced
obtaining “real” broadband connections. The new service offers ultra
high-speed symmetrical connections for commercial, institutional and
government use, Dougherty said. Roadstar's INET Loudoun offers fiber like
connection speeds to these users hard-pressed to find any type of high
capacity broadband connection options – much less at a reasonable price.
Dougherty predicts that’s INET Loudoun service will radically change the
playing field once dominated by wire-based providers. With today’s
announcement, Roadstar is offering INET Loudoun services that rival direct
fiber links at T1 pricing levels.
At the core of the INET Loudoun service offering is the latest in broadband
wireless technology. Using GigE 80 Ghz licensed millimeter wave RF
technology from Bridgewave Communications, Roadstar is now able to build
multiple gigabit backbone network pipes–“wireless fiber”–which provide
fiber-like connectivity speeds, but with the inherent cost and flexibility
only available from wireless.
Deploying wireless fiber means Roadstar’s INET Loudoun network will be build
out in a fraction of the time it would take to construct a similar
terrestrial-based fiber network. No digging or endless waits for permits and
construction; in many cases customers can go from conception to online
within days instead of weeks or months.
Roadstar is one of the first ISP's in the nation to deploy GigE millimeter
wave technology licensed by the Federal Communications Commission into the
core of its network. Because of this, Loudoun businesses will be among the
first in the nation to enjoy the results- high capacity connections for
their business at reasonable prices.
Since the company’s beginnings in 2003, Roadstar Internet’s engineering
staff has constantly researched and tested new equipment to determine the
best use of available licensed and unlicensed equipment and spectrum to
deliver dependable high capacity broadband to its customers. 
Roadstar also unveiled a new Web site at www.roadstarinternet.com and
Dougherty said complete pricing information for all services could be found
there.
Additional information about Roadstar or the INET Loudoun Network is
available at the company Web site at www.roadstarinternet.com or contact
David Hughes, Director of Communications, at 703-234-9969
[EMAIL PROTECTED]
Limited tours may be available of the new facilities.


Roadstar Internet/INET Loudoun Fact Sheet
What is different about Roadstar’s INET and all the other wireless services
we hear about?
•   Today, several wireless providers such as Roadstar Internet can
provide users with T1-level service. There are more services coming, and the
soon to be auctioned 700 MHz airwaves may bring additional providers for
residential users. 
•   INET Loudoun service is radically different because it focuses on
the needs of heavy users and businesses needing very dependable, high
quality high capacity broadband connections. Company CEO Marty Dougherty
said that by utilizing this technology, Roadstar can  provide a T1 like
service for significantly less expense then a standard wired T1 (1.5Meg)
from an alternative provider. “What we are really excited about is being
able to offer you a 10-50 meg connection over the same network,” he said.
•   These lower costs mean the difference for a business considering
whether to stay in or relocate into Loudoun County. For many high tech
companies, a broadband internet

RE: [WISPA] RF propagation map: WiFi vs WiMax?

All,

Bear in mind, Clearwire uses their own base station technology,
which is mostly Nextnet base stations ( now motorola ) . Nextnet's
performance is not wimax, just really high power base stations and CPE.

4 QAM / 2 WATT output power / 8dbi directional antenna on the CPE
and I think around 10 watts on the base in power?

( originally was nextnet, then mccaw bought them for 50 million, then
sold it to Motorola in exchange for 500 million in investment )

 Outdoor, could be many more miles, but the ClearWire indoor-only
 self-install business model seems superior to all other WISP  
 models, unless
 you're selling a super-premium business service (fiber/T1  
 replacement).

 We basically sell Clearwire for all residential, and use our own  
 wireless
 network for premium business customers only (149/month minimum).

 Just curious if anyone has seen a coverage map that compares WiFi and
 WiMax?

 I spent a little bit of time researching WiMax, but decided I would
 be unlikely to have a license and to just go with what I have that
 mostly works (unlicensed). But I would like to know what WiMax means
 in a rural, tree filled environment.

 As a novice WISP (about 18 months now), I can only hope for good
 coverage with 2.4GHz to maybe a mile. A rare house might have LOS
 farther than that, but generally there will be enough trees in the
 way by a mile to block my signal.  (this is using farm grain legs/
 silos for the AP, so maybe 150' max AGL)   If I switch to 900MHz,
 maybe the distance gets out to 2.5 miles.

 Would a 2.5GHz Wimax AP push the signal much better thru trees?  I
 suppose it would make a difference what was at the customer end - a
 laptop with a WiMax card vs a fixed, outdoor radio.  And does AP
 height help a lot?  I don't see an advantage to paying commercial
 tower rates to get above 200' in my situation, but maybe that changes
 with WiMax.

Is that the same Link Jim had problems with every once in while after dark?

 Hi folks,

 So how many of you using it have experienced the DFS2 kicking in? I am
 curious because we are not getting many reports where radars are  
 forcing
 the radios to vacate and move to another channel.

 We are getting asked this a lot of late since we released our 5.4 PMP,
 but so far we don't see the radars much. IF you have a story, please
 indicate if you are rural, rural coastal, etc.

 Also how about 5.3 GHz. DFS2 is now mandatory there but I don't  
 think we
 have any case where those found a radar.

 Thanks,

[WISPA] Bandwidth, Best place.

2007-10-01 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
I figured I would start a new thread for this.

My question is with this type of thing happening, what would be the best way
to obtain bandwidth? Get multiple tier 1's, or a mix of tier 1's and tier
2's, or multiple tier 2's? 

Who would be the best ones to go with? How many carriers do you really need?

Currently we have one tier 2 provider, Onvoy, who has bandwidth from
multiple tier 1's and 2's. But we have been thinking of adding another
provider.

RE: [WISPA] Leasing 2.3 or 2.5 GHz Licensed Spectrum

2007-10-01 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
Mr. Booher,

Why in the Heck would someone pay WiMAX BST pricing if someone didn't want
WiMAX? I realize that WiMAX QOS is great, but with the proper equipment QOS
can be achieved.

How many providers have you talked to less than 10, 20, 50? I can see a
certain small number looking at it that way, but definitely not the masses.
I would sure think that those providers would be better off putting the cash
up to get Alvarion to make a 3.5Ghz VL product and have the software built
to provide the desired QOS if it isn't good enough already. I would bet you
could do that for the price of less than two or three 3 sector 4th order
diversity WiMAX BST's.

I think there are quite a few Operators who COULD have access to 2.5Ghz, but
most don't have the Cash, or the timing has passed to get it. The 2.5Ghz
profile is important because that is where Sprint and Clearwire are playing,
so if you want the chance for a roaming agreement, or a buy out that's where
you need to be. XHOM may be the big player, but I'll build a Carrier grade
WiMAX Network, set it up for roaming, sell to my own subs, take a roaming
agreement if I can get one (Which both Sprint and Clearwire KNOW They can't
do this alone, too much ground to cover and too much money) and even if I
don't I'll set up a daily rate and let their subs use my network.

You say Airspan is shipping, but the questions are these:
a. is it certified
b. what spectrum can we really use it in, unlicensed if full of noise (Which
WiMAX Hates), they ARE NOT SHIPPING 2.5GHZ (I talked the regional rep, he
said maybe next year), 3650 is no where near ready for real deployment
(Experimental Licenses don't count. No licensing system set up, no
Certification standard, etc.)
c. Who other than cell providers has 1.4Ghz?
d. 2.3Ghz is just as small of provider market as 2.5Ghz.
e. above 3700Mhz is mostly LOS, the power isn't there for indoor installs in
the 5Ghz UNII/ISM Bands.

Your best bet is to stop arguing, 802.16E is the future. Weather we all like
it or not. Fixed Unlicensed will still have it's place, but why would I go
with that when I can buy a Laptop with a built in WiMAX Chip and use my
internet anywhere. Now if I am out of the WiMAX Are then Fixed Wireless from
a WISP makes sense, but oh wait there are outdoor CPE, put a 24dbi grid on
one of those puppies and see what you can punch through, then maybe I pay an
extra $5 per month to have both my Laptop and the home CPE on the
networkSee there are so many options. 

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the WISP of today, heck I work for one, owned
one, and think they are doing great things the World not to mention their
local areas. Technology chances, times change, and the future is inevitable.

Patrick,

I disagree, as most of the network operators, internationally
that I have spoken with have stated that they currently have no  
interest in 802.16
and are just looking for standards  based solutions that utilize  
802.16a-2004 chipsets.
They just want QOS capable, scalable, FIXED BROADBAND WIRELESS ACCESS.

In the US there are very LIMITED # of providers than have access to  
licensed
2 ghz bands, so i don't understand clearly why the 2ghz profile would  
matter
as much, since you literally have 2 players in that space, now  
actually one, xohm.

not misleading fluff, Airspan for example is shipping TODAY 802.16-2004
compliant ( not wimax compliant, not that it matters considering  
there is
no wimax interop for QOS, so really who cares anyways ) solutions in
  1.4, 2.3, 2.5, 3.3-37, 5.4, 4.9, and 5.8ghz bands.

 Jeff,

 That would be stretching to the extreme since the simple point of fact
 is that there is no WiMAX Forum profile for the AWS bands. No profile
 means no ecosystem. No ecosystem means no chips and no devices in  
 scale
 or interoperability between suppliers.

 Folks, right now there is only one profile in WiMAX that matters and
 these are the ones based on 802.16e-2005 in 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5 GHz  
 ranges.
 Those are the only bands for which the ecosystem is revolving and
 evolving right now. Other may be added at some point, but right now
 anything else is misleading fluff.

 Anyone else having a problem viewing the images at netflix.com?

 All the images are coming up broken links

The images on netflix.com are hosted by a CDN, which is why your
connectivity to netflix.com itself has nothing to do with the images. By
chance does your company or one of your upstreams use Cogent? If so, you
may want to be aware that Cogent depeered Limelight and WV Fiber recently
both of which are heavy content distributors.

We are peered with both Limelight and WV Fiber. We pull a lot of traffic
from them, so the move by Cogent caused some serious distribution. It also
makes the experience of Cogent customers that much worse.

I will have to disagree. Today the coverage may be poor, but give it some
time. Heck DSL coverage still stinks and that's been around for years. With
the Sprint Clearwire commitment and Intel backing thisIE building chips
to integrate into laptops...you will see a big movement, probably similar to
the Cellular boom. The spectrum is ready, the equipment is ready and getting
even better. EVDO, GPRS, etc can't touch the speeds WiMAX is capable of. 

I would call DigitalBridge and ask them what the deal is. Maybe something
wasn't provisioned right (if you know even a little about WiMAX you should
now there is nothing simple about it.). I know of providers pulling over
6Mbps each way over BreezeMAX at 4 miles with indoor CPE. And that's at
50/50 downlink/uplink.

I don't know how much more can say due to NDA's. So I better stop here.

The point is I bet something wasn't right.

Hello Travis,

Well now, this really doesn't come as any surprise, does it?  grin

I can easily get those speeds driving along nearly any interstate in the
country at 80MPH with my Sprint Data Card.

Again, the cellular providers will dominate the mobile user market if only
simply because they have the coverage.  Why would someone signup for
BridgeMAXX (with a fraction of a fraction coverage area) for equal or in
this case quite a bit slower access as compared to any of today's cellular
provider data networks?

Reminds me of the Sprint commercial where they are comparing coverage areas:
 
Client  Sprint  BridgeMAXX

Denver? Yes.Nope.
Nashville?  Yes.Nope.
Boston? Yes.Nope.  Wait, what was that again?  Boston?  Oh,
nope.
Vegas?  Yes.YES!, err I mean nope, but we have limited coverage
in Rexburg!  lol

Brad,

I received our modem from BridgeMAXX and tested on Thursday last week. 
We were located about 1 mile from their tower in Rexburg, Idaho. We had 
full signal (all lights on top of the modem) while indoor.

We ran several speed tests to Salt Lake City and Seattle. We purchased 
their up to 2meg service and the speed tests (using Speedtest.net, 
which has been very accurate on our test cable connection and test DSL 
connection) showed an average of 300kbps download and 450kbps upload. 
This was during the middle of the day (when most people are probably not 
using the service).

Loading web pages was almost painful however... espn.com took almost 15 
seconds to completely load. :(

 It leaves quite a bit to be desired when comparing broadband services.  

  

 My Sprint Data card pulls up the website faster and works ANYWHERE I have

 Just another hyped story relating to a service that will over commit and

 DBC purchased an existing company (Teton Wireless) that was using their
 2.5ghz license for Television and internet service. They started 10 years
 ago with just TV and added internet about 3-4 years ago. So, technically
 they are not a start-up as they purchased an existing business and
 license.

 They also didn't raise money, but rather sold another business (cellular I
 believe) and used that money to buy this business. They are in the game

 the short-haul, trying to get as many customers as possible with the full

2007-09-24 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
OK, I can see the College point. But it's not WiMAX, it must be their
backend. Sorry, I didn't realize they were competition. 

 

I am will to bet that if someone has built a system in 2.5Ghz they will have
a shot at a roaming agreement. Sprint and Clearwire both know they can't do
this alone, or even together. Some are choosing to run it in 2.5Ghz and
others are opting for 2.3. Sprint/Clearwire will run 2.5, the death star
will run 2.3. Currently from my understanding the Laptop chips will be in
2.5Ghz, currently no profile exists for 2.3. So the 2.3 rollouts are
actually 2.5 WiMAX systems running 2.3Ghz chips. Patrick may have a better
insight here.

 

I guess my main point is don't downplay WiMAX in general, you can have the
best radios, but if the providers backend sucks you can't see the radios
shine.

 

Disclaimer:

I know very little about DigitalBridge, their network, or anything related.
I just know that WiMAX works better than that when properly set up with a
proper backend.

Why would I call and say anything to them? They are my competition, and they
are doing a GREAT job... ;)

Just heard from one of my installers tonight about a customer he went to
last week who tried it and said it was terribly slow... so it wasn't just
by chance that they didn't setup my modem correctly.

My guess would be (from 8+ years of experience with this town) that college
students are using whatever bandwidth is available at any given second. When
we provided service to 15 college apartment complexes many years ago, it was
a joke. Some students would queue up 100 songs to be downloaded and then
just let it run all day while they were gone to class. It didn't matter how
much bandwidth you gave a complex, they would use 100% of it. 

You are also forgetting that although WiMax may be available in 100 cities
around the country, unless you have service in every one of those coverage
areas, you will get to pay again. Compared with Sprint or ATT, in which I
can pay $60/month and have coverage everywhere at the same speed... (and
like Brad mentioned, be moving down the freeway at the same time). 

Also, is there a set frequency that WiMax uses? In my area, they are using
2.3ghz. Is that the same all over the country? Is that the frequency that
Intel will build into their chips?

Hello Travis,
 
Well now, this really doesn't come as any surprise, does it?  grin
 
I can easily get those speeds driving along nearly any interstate in the
country at 80MPH with my Sprint Data Card.
 
Again, the cellular providers will dominate the mobile user market if only
simply because they have the coverage.  Why would someone signup for
BridgeMAXX (with a fraction of a fraction coverage area) for equal or in
this case quite a bit slower access as compared to any of today's cellular
provider data networks?
 
Reminds me of the Sprint commercial where they are comparing coverage areas:
 
Client  Sprint  BridgeMAXX
 
Denver? Yes.   Nope.
Nashville? Yes.   Nope.
Boston? Yes.   Nope.  Wait, what was that again?  Boston?  Oh,
nope.
Vegas?  Yes.   YES!, err I mean nope, but we have limited coverage
in Rexburg!  lol
 
 
Best,
 
 
Brad

I would like to look at the bandwidth per channel your system would use.
Around here there are multiple tv's per household, and very few are ever on
the same channel. That is where I see the issue, even at 1 meg per feed X 3

Not ready for prime time...?  There's already several hundred thousand
subscribers on IPTV platforms in the US alone, so I'm not sure what
you're waiting for...  what shortcomings are you seeing?

The technology IS being deployed in prime time scenarios already
(ATT, which is not known for being adventuresome with technology is
the biggest, but not the only domestic example; internationally, it is
being deployed much more widely).

The main problem that WISPs face is that you may have to do some
network overhauls to handle that sort of traffic...

When you resell DirectTV (unless they have changed their model since
2005, which is the last I looked at their agreements), it is more of a
referral/outsourced installation crew than reselling.  It does let you
offer triple play to a point, but (again, unless it's changed), you
can't do single bill and you can't really generate any reoccuring
revenue (which, as a service provider, is where your real profit tends
to be)

Although you do have increased costs in doing your own in terms of
network buildout and so forth, you also effectively (if done right,
profitably) subsidize the buildout of a better network

It probably is not quite viable for ultra-rural WISPs because of
really low densities and so forth.  In areas with higher densities
(definitely MDU), it is viable and deployable

RE: [WISPA] DIY Server Questions

2007-08-29 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
We buy SuperMicro systems. They just seem to work. www.8anet.com
www.serversdirect.com www.aberdeeninc.com

We are looking at moving to a Sun or IBM Blade solution also. The biggest
advantage we see is the support, both companies have a full line of parts in
stock about 2hrs away. When uptime is your business, it can make sense to
pay for things like 24x7x365 4hr or less response time. If we were closer to
the parts depot I would even go to 2hr response. This is just something you
do not get when you buy parts from newegg.com. I cannot say enough for a
redundant system either, hot standbys with automatic failover is critical.

Like I said, uptime is your business, right?

 Hi Gang!

 I'm finally, at long last building my Network Operations Center
 and would love to hear recommendations from the brave
 souls out there that build their own hardware.

 I'm looking for recommendations for motherboards,
 rack-mount case vendors, Rack vendors, etc.

 I must admit I have a bias against Intel-based systems,
 but would defer to experience supporting an Intel platform.
 I will in every instance be running on flavor or another of Linux
 for all my OS needs, should that have a bearing on the response.

 My previous experience favors ASUS motherboards, and
 good name-brand memory devices. I have lost faith in most
 of the Disc Drive makers, however Shugart's 5 year warranty
 is tempting me in their direction.

 Any thoughts, comments, etc are welcomed.

 If appropriate, you may contact me of list.

other is not so kind. It simply has a ladder up the side and over the

no catwalk. We were thinking about using one of those 170 lbs. Water

Brett Bonomo and Greg VanDell of Exalt provided amazing pre-sales support
when I inquired about their 4.9 GHz gear for an RFP a few weeks ago. Exalt
takes the cake in 4.9 GHz because of high guaranteed throughput (up to 55
Mbps goodput with 20 MHz channel) and sync, which would allow many more than
two links to be deployed from a central location. They can also do
sub-millisecond latency (or up to 5 ms for maximum throughput) and have
adjustable channel sizes - down to 5 MHz, I believe, with 1 MHz spacing - to
help one fit into cluttered spectrum. All of these things apply to the
5.xtri-band product, except that it can do 13 Mbps (in 8 MHz) to 216
Mbps (in
64 MHz). The integrated tri-band radio/antenna looks like the most flexible
option out there right now for shorter links where any of the three bands
would work.

Has anyone spoken with any TTP for CALEA mediation boxes?

After re-reading the Cisco CALEA compliance stuff today, 
(http://radinfo.blogspot.com/2007/04/calea-tpp.html) I'm beginning to 
think that you need a box that can massage the data dump and transport 
it to the LEA.

According to Bearhill's webinar today 
(http://www.bearhill.com/webinars.html), being able to make th etap with 
compliant equipment is one thing, being able to extract the data and 
send it real-time to the LEA is another thing.

I have a client who spoke with Apogee, who is basically re-using an SS8 
box. Cost is about $800 per month. They do all the heavy lifting.

I read a couple reviews of Solera. There box is about $7000.

I don't know what Bearhill's solution costs. It depends on how many 
POP's I guess.

So any input on TTP's ???

RE: [WISPA] What about equipment providers?

2007-04-23 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
Where did you see that equipment must be CALEA Compliant? 

We chose Vantage Point for a TTP, and all they were concerned about was the
network layout and how routing was handled. The need to know where to put
taps and probes.

Subject: [WISPA] What about equipment providers?

If we're to take some of what's been published literally,  all wisp
equipment providers are going to be required to be CALEA compliant.

This is going to lead to some serious compatibility and interoperability
issues, if you ask me.  HOW equipment maker A, B, and C accomplish stuff is
likely going to be different.   Thus, a network with mixed equipment may
turn out to be almost impossible to put together completely.

What about all of us who buy stuff from outside the US?What about the
people who have large networks with now out of production equipment?   Will
CELEA COMPLIANT stickers now be required to get into the WISP business?

I don't see anyone addressing this.  Nor do I see anyone addressing
community and free networks.   While WISPA is definitely a WISP association,
we're dead in the water if the WISP equipment providers dry up or go away,
or we become stuck with one or two equipment providers, and all the
compliant stuff is 50% more in price...

To provide terrestrial service, TowerStream must file an application for a

Are they talking about a STA here or can we get useable, for profit

I think that 3' is small enough, 11Ghz fades in the rain pretty good, so I
would think that you would only use 3' dish on links less than 5 Miles. Why
now just run High power 18Ghz radios with 2' then?

Hello Everyone
Wanted to update you on our walmart rfid problem.We spent hours on monday
trying to talk to someone on their rfid deployment team,we finally made
contact.We were informed that it used the whole spectrum,had to run at full
power and used circular polarity.They stated they were operating within the
legal limits and could not change anything to help with our interference
problem.I ask if they could turn off their equipment for 30 days to give us
a chance to relocate to a new site.They agreed to two weeks which suprised
me.When they turned it off all of our links instantly went back to working
including the one inside their store at the eye doctors office.We start
looking for a new site and equipment to install on it.Well today walmart
calls us and say they want to work with us on the problem and they are
sending a engineer to this store to check for a possible rogue piece of
equipment and possibly trying to place some type of schielding between them
and us IF we will QUIT posting info about this problem on broadband reports
forum.I am amazed that they changed their whole attitude because of a little
bad pr.Maybe we will be able to find a solution to the problem now that they
seem willing to cooperate.Again thanks to everone who offered their advice
on the situation.

 I believe it can now be said without reservation, that if you are using
 unlicensed and wanting to implement a double play of VoIP + data, the
 ONLY product out there that can do it in scale and with toll quality is
 BreezeACCESS VL.


 Bzzz.. Wrong.

 Aperto supports toll quality voice of about 400 calls per sector, on 1/3 
 of
 the channel width that vl requires.

 Other than aperto though, I would agree with most of your sentiments.

Hi,
those of you who use Canopy 900: what is the actual throughput 
you've gotten to the CPE?  4Mbps or less?  Has anyone run a bandwidth 
test while passing traffic simultaneously in both directions (such as 
with Qcheck)?
Thanks a lot.



If you have adequate SNR to be able to associate at the higher modulation
(2X), then you will get an aggregate of 4 Mb
Regarding up vs down, that depends on how you set your ratios in Canopy
(it's allocated on a percentage basis)

Qcheck is a horrible program for accurately checking bandwidth, I would
recommend you look into something that actually works like Iperf

 If you need 100 megabit Cat 5 performance then it is best to
terminate
 on 110 blocks instead of 66 blocks. That is what I was always told in

 I am curious if using it on a tower could save in future

 You'd have it punched in a block at the top and bottom

 Wow! Business must be good!

That depends on your perspective. We have a ton of orders and are racing 
to service them all. The more we install the more capacity upgrades we 
have to do meaning even more installs. This kind of growth is extremely 
challenging because if it isn't done correctly we can destroy the company.
 Look at licensed. I know that is obvious but I think it is the only 
 way short of bonding Orthogons together. I thought the max distance 
 for 70 GHz gbps radios was about 7 miles. It has been a while since I 
 read the specs. I am sure the rain fade would be an issue here. There 
 is actually much less attenuation of 70 GHz than there is at 60 GHz. 
 There is a spike of absorption of 60 GHz where water molecules eat 
 that signal. It gets better above 60 GHz. I believe that you can go 
 through the air better with as high as 100 GHz than what you can with 
 60 GHz. Obviously there are other licensed options in lower frequency 
 space as well. I know Charles has some experience running licensed 
 high capacity backhaul. Charles, what do you run for backhaul over 100 
 mbps FDX?

Licensed doesn't make a lot of sense for us. We simply don't have the 
ability to predict where are growth is coming from. We routinely upgrade 
existing backhauls and/or reconnect our POPs together in different ways 
to increase our capacity and redundancy. With licensed we are forced to 
have a static configuration.
 I thought 24 GHz unlicensed had limited bandspace which made the top 
 end about 100 mbps FDX?

DragonWave seems to have a 24Ghz unlicensed product that can do 200Mbps 
full duplex.

RE: [WISPA] Canopy 8.1 firmware

2006-12-09 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
Be careful, I ran 8.1.4 on one tower for a week with no issues. I then
proceeded to run it on 6 more towers for 2 weeks, no problems. But when I
did the last 8 towers we had our highest number of tech calls since our mail
server crashed. SM Ethernet ports would just lock up (RF interface was still
accessible), customers with no problems started forming thousands of session
per day. Just a real bad deal, mind you it did fix some problems, but it
wasn't worth it so we rolled back to 7.3.6. That was another headache. A
little birdie told me to NOT run 8.1.4 or 8.1.5 and wait for 8.1.6. Take
it as you choose.

RE: [WISPA] What the heck chews up 100mhz of 5.8ghz?!?

2006-11-30 Thread Mike Bushard, Jr
Funny you mention that, But you are right. We are located on a tower with a
2.4 WM and a 5ghz WM. We put our stuff up, ran the SA and went holy S***. We
were able to move around them. But I forgot about them when I moved some
channels around, and sure enough about 3 months later I was taking to the
area tech and I asked how everything was working... They never could
figure out why their t-1 radios kept dropping until I asked what channels
they were running.

Canopy gave them some problems, but we never saw anything. So now I have
those channels blocked out..

Not that this is a good practice...but 

Wmux radios are extremely sensative to interference on the Rx size (a wiff
of anything takes it down)
Figure out the Tx/Rx spread (may be 5.3 GHz on that particular site), and
shut them down on the Rx side -- maybe then they'll talk =)

actually do this job with much much less spectrum. I know of ceragon and 
their fiberair, as well as redline can do this. I've never heard of a

change plans and that's gonna be a little expensive. Sort of wish I'd

based on past experience it wasn't going to be a problem... WRONG!

Subject: Re: [WISPA] FREE OSS and Billing Software for WiSPS

The paid services look pretty good.   I'm checking them out now.  I've 
looked at other 3rd party tech support companies but they all seem to have 
to adapt to WISP support.  This is a WISP that knows WISP needs.  When I 
talked with the guy he had most of the right answers to my questions.

They will send you 2 servers to put at your main POP.  The two servers load 
share and fail over.  The servers are in-line on your network but parallel 
to each other at your POP.  Your customer traffic goes through them...they 
each split up the load of CPEs they manage and if one goes down the other 
takes on all traffic from all CPEs.

The servers do bandwidth management (I think it's limited now in that it 
cannot do traffic-type-shaping...just mainly up/down speeds on different CPE

service type profiles).  They do DHCP, NMS, alerting, etc.

Their level 1 tech support:
- will take phone calls from your customers (currently they have a 12-hour 
shift but he said they were expanding their level 1 support hours).
- will help your customers with their routers, their firewall software, 
their e-mail program, their e-mail password
- will provision a radio on your system and set up a customer record
- will help you over the phone to allow you to have one guy out there aiming

an antenna at the AP getting feedback on bidirectional SNR, packet 
loss/retransmission, etc
- will help you over the phone if you're on top of a tower putting on a 
connector and asking How's that working now?

Their NOC support:
- responds to alarms and checks a protocol to see if you want to be woken up

at 2 in the morning for such an alarm (7/24)
- watches performance of backhauls

Their billing system is free for you to use and integrates with the customer

service side of the database.  If you have your own merchant account for 
billing via credit card, it will do that free of charge.  If you want to use

their merchant account, there are fees.  You can even set it up so that your

customers can pay by check but you never have to handle the checks (with 
fees, of course, as this will take labor).

I'm on the upper end of their 250-CPE mark and will pay $250 per month with 
(most likely) no $$$ up front.  Then I will pay $500 per month for the 
251st-500th CPEs.  I am going to try this out on a 1-year contract.  It's 
worth that much to me just to see if it will work out for my situation.

I think that if it is a good service, then it will be a good option for some

small WISPs.  It is clear to me that if my business will keep growing, it 
will grow out of a service like this.  This may buy me some time and get me 
over that hump, though.

p.s.  I haven't talked with them about their CPE lease option but I plan to.

I'm also talking to other leasing companies about leasing CPE.  Anyone out 
there have opinions on leasing companies?  (I chose my words carefully there

about not starting a debate on whether or not to lease CPE.)

Subject: [WISPA] Legal insight?


This outta be a fun and interesting thread:

mks:  You are one mean drunk, Superman!

As it relates to this space, rate the following 1-10 (1 being high
priority and 10 being I could care a less) in terms of important if
you could bend the mind of top legal experts to get an opinion. Add
other questions you like answered in your reply.

mks:  I guess I'm a bit confused.  Those are not really 1 thru 10 type 
questions.  Those are questions begging answers.  I'll try to do both 
though.

Comment or add to this list:
- What good is Form 477

mks:  It's the ONLY official head count of broadband customers.  1

 and do we really need to file it?

mks:  Absolutely.  Without known customers we have NO value in the food 
chain.  The more customers we have the more power we have.  1

- Does CALEA affect me?

mks:  Still trying to figure that one out.  I've got a note in to the
FCC 
for some clarification on this issue.  3

 How? When? How do I solve it without it costing
an arm and a leg?

mks:  Not only that, but it is really any of MY buisiness what my
customers 
do on the net?  If someone thinks there's a problem with a customer,
come to 
me with a search warrent and the needed tools for the search (just like
you 
would come to my house) and have fun.  No one is going to want 
everything they've ever done on the internet saved forever.  That's the
kind 
of silly crap that the Nazis and Soviets did.  Look where it got them.
2

- What's the real risk, if any, of not using certified systems?

mks:  Realistically?  Little or no risk.  Although, under the rules
changes 
from 2005 it's pretty hard to be out of certification these days.  Power

levels, that's a whole nother issue though.  Gotta pay attention to
them!  5

- What does it mean to have a certified system in the first place?

mks:  It means that ALL of your radio gear, clear down to the cable
level, 
has made it past the FCC and is certified to work within certain
parameters. 
Note: I did NOT say work as advertized :-).  8

- Don't the revised rules allow me to make the choice about what base
station antennas I wish to use?

mks:  Yes.  3

- How is 3650 coming along and how do it look like it will shape up?

mks:  Great question.  I sure wish I could get something out of the FCC.

Sinces it's an issue on the table at this time they won't talk to me.
Will 
they change the rules that they put out for us last year?  I hope not.
1

- Does the FCC really read comments I file on anything?

mks:  Yes.  Even the late filings.  3

 How important
(and difficult) is it for me to officially voice my comments?

mks:  Within WISPA it's easy.  When we find out about issues that mater
to 
the industry we file on the issue.  We also point out EXACTLY how our 
membership can also file on the issue.  EVERYTHING that the FCC does,
rules 
wise, comes from the written reccord.  If you don't voice your thoughts
they 
CAN'T legally act on them.  And it has to be in writing, you can't just
call 
in and tell them what you want them to do.  3

- What the deal with the TV bands?

mks:  I'm loosing hope on this one.  The broadcasters are very powerful.

And they seem to be willing to pull out all of the stops on this.  Clear

down to a 60 Minutes exploding gas tank version of the truth.  And
because 
we, as an industry, aren't good at filling out our 477s we're not even
give 
pimple on the but status these days.  The current chairman at the FCC
has 
turned out to be far less of a fan of the entrepenure than Powell was
and 
that's not gonna help either.  1+

- Are there realistic options for WISPs to get licensed bands?

mks:  Not at this time.  I know

If you are buying all new hardware (P9) it will all do 2X rate (14Mbps). We
run Advantage AP's and Legacy SM's, here's why:

With the Advantage AP you it will fun full 2X 14Mbps all the time. Legacy
SM's will run Full 2x Rate for the duration of the burst setting in the SM,
alter the Burt bucket is expended it will rate limit itself to a max 7Mbps,
Still run in 2x rate but it limits the Ethernet port throughput.

It is kind of confusing at first.

 Also I would never install a unit with a 60* pattern (Trango or

 http://www.wirelessbehive.com



 Based on the information from Mike, I could not use Canopy. In 
 several areas, I have 4-5 towers located within 5 miles of each 
 other how do I do that with Canopy? With Trango, I use a 
 different channel for the sector pointing toward another tower 
 (frequency planning and coordination is very important) and 
 everything works great. Is there a solution for this with Canopy?

 This is where GPS sync comes in.  You can point two different tower 
 locations on the same frequency at each other and they will not 
 interfere with each other.  This is how it is possible to do a 6 AP 
 cluster on one tower with only 3 non overlapping channels.


 Also, by using only a 10mhz spectrum per channel, Trango's channel 1 
 and channel 8 are actually outside the reach of Canopy and 802.11 
 (for the most part) and thus can almost always be used in a noisy 
 environment.

 Remember with Canopy you generally don't have to avoid interference.  
 Find the cleanest channel and 90% of the time you will be the few db 
 louder then the noise that you need to make a viable link.

 Well, so far as we can tell the only thing that can kill canopy, IS 
 CANOPY.
 We have put it up against WaveRider, Alvarion, and 802.11b. They all 
 fell of
 the face of the earth.
 We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE 
 and more
 on the way. (I realize there are many people bigger than us.)

 We use a mix of MTI Omni's, MTI or Tiltek 120deg Sectors (MTI for 
 Horizontal
 and Tiltek for Vertical) and integrated 60deg sectors (I really wish 
 someone
 would come out with a descent H-pol as I don't like the integrated 
 antenna)
 with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

 Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

 If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
 If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
 channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have 
 speed of
 light issues from tower to tower.

 Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, yes. 
 You
 just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this mean I
 recommend it, NO.

 Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so many 
 AP's in
 a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At least 
 we know
 there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

 Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 
 900 that
 will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor was
 lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a long 
 ways.
 It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

 YMMV.

Well, so far as we can tell the only thing that can kill canopy, IS CANOPY.
We have put it up against WaveRider, Alvarion, and 802.11b. They all fell of
the face of the earth. 

We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE and more
on the way. (I realize there are many people bigger than us.)

We use a mix of MTI Omni's, MTI or Tiltek 120deg Sectors (MTI for Horizontal
and Tiltek for Vertical) and integrated 60deg sectors (I really wish someone
would come out with a descent H-pol as I don't like the integrated antenna)
with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have speed of
light issues from tower to tower.

Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, yes. You
just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this mean I
recommend it, NO.

Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so many AP's in
a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At least we know
there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 900 that
will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor was
lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a long ways.
It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

YMMV.

I'd be interested in further explanation on this topic. We have some 
Canopy pmp and haven't found the lack of GPS a problem. Granted we don't 
have a large amount of pmp, but I would certainly like to understand any 
future pain before we experience it.

Just visiting www.orthogonsystems.com
to see if Spectra will do 2:1 Master:Slave asymmetric throughput like the
Gemini (Spectra won't) .. I see the Gemini and Spectra have been rebranded as
the PTP 400 and PTP 600, respectively. 

What stupid names! I hope to god they don't screw up the hardware as they're
doing to the brand. 

Who wants to talk about a PTP-600?

Subject: Re: [isp-wireless] Sector Antenna's I want the Best!


 David, as usual, great thoughts.

 Let me add a bit here on the but what should *I* do??? side of things.

 I have both omni and sector solutions on the air.  I have both non amped 
 and amped of both.  Let me show you how/where I get to each option.

 Very rural, few customers likely in the first 18 to 24 months.  The 
 AVERAGE ap out there will service from 75 to 100 subs jut fine as long as 
 you don't have many hogs.  So in a case where I'll likely have less than 
 50 users I'll go with an amplified omni unless the geography is such that 
 there's just no way to get more than a few miles of service out to people.

 Down town where there are a few companies in the shadows of my main wpops 
 I may put in an omni.  Low gain so that coverage only extends a few blocks

 etc.

 I have some sites on hill sides that overlook many hundreds of houses. 
 Very stiff competition so there number of customers isn't really an issue.

 Spectrum issues are though.  There are at least 4 other wisps on the hill,

 one of whom is both stupid and mean.  You know the type, never met an amp 
 he didn't like.  He's got a sector that points to NO customers, only 
 to my tower.  The good news is that operators like that eventually run out

 of money and will go away.  But in this location I've got SIX different 
 systems.  4 of them are 2.4 and three of those are on the same channel. 
 Remember you have not only the noise that your ap's see to deal with but 
 also the noise that your cpe sees coming from his ap's.  In my case I have

 sectors as narrow as 30* (panel antennas make nice sectors and are 
 cheap!). I also rotate polarity ass needed to help bleed off as much noise

 as I can.

 There are other spots that I have no customers behind a tower on a hill so

 sectors just make sense anyway.  If long range is needed OR if I do have a

 customer or two out of the main lobe of the sector I may put an amp on the

 sector too.  Usually there's no need though.  It's surprising that a 
 sector with an amp and running at the max legal 4 watts will often not 
 give much more coverage than a sector with no amp running at 1 or 2 watts.

 The main reason for that is the noise that the amp injects into the system

 keeps your SNR about the same as often as not.

 There's also a cost factor.  A good Maxrad adjustable beam sector (the 
 only ones I buy nowadays) is about $400 from EC.  The H-Pol version is 
 $250ish. I tried the cheap sectors from Maxrad and another company and all

 systems running them act just a bit strange.  Drop in a good antenna and 
 it's AMAZING how much better the system runs!  A good omni antenna from 
 Maxrad is about $100.  Others that are worth having are in that ball park 
 (remember, there's ALMOST NEVER a good reason to run an omni over 
 10dB!!  The high gain ones are just more money for the sales 
 geeks).

 Sooo, 360* coverage with an omni and amp.  $400 for a good ap, $250 for a 
 good amp ($800? for a great one), $100 for an antenna, $25 to $150 for 
 cables and we're at around $1000 for an omni based wpop.  (plus backhaul 
 but we'd need that anyhow)  For a sectored solution you've got $400 for an

 ap, $400 for an antenna, $5 to $25 for cable (cat 5 this time).  Times 
 THREE or more puts us into the $1200 to $1500 range.

 Now, there are some that say you should put in the sectors just because 
 it's so close in price and you have better spectrum usage that way.  I 
 don't really buy into that theory.  You'll usually use ALL spectrum when 
 sector vs. one channel when using an omni.  However, with sectors it's 
 easier to avoid noise coming from different directions on different 
 channels/polarities.

 The FIRST thing you should do is figure out if there are enough customers 
 in a given area to at least pay the bills.  Then you need to run a 
 spectrum sweep to make sure that the band you want to use is indeed usable

 (do NOT make the mistake I did and assume that because you are out in BFE 
 you'll not have other wireless users in the area).  NOTE:  Netstubler or 
 anything like

I realize it's a commercial and all; but seriously

There appears to be a Ladder inside the tower, just like the 1,000 footers
up here. I would surely not think they would try to climb the face of a
tower like that.

Second, a tower like that SWAYS big time that high up, with a good breeze I
can watch the 1,100' tower sway with binoculars. During a storm, if it's
light enough out, you can see it with the naked eye.

The older fellow did not have any shock absorbing lanyards with, much less
hooked off above him.

However I would have liked to saw what happens to that coke bottle if it hit
he ground.
