and to be reflected on 477, I believe you need to be the one billing for it.

As long as it is phone service that reaches NANP numbers including X11 numbers, 
it counts as long as it is offered by YOUR company. Can be white label. 


Yes, has to be reflected on 477. 


We did a webinar last week on this topic, hope to post for members soon.

Is there some information about what is considered phone service? 


Can we just offer something like Ooma? Does this phone service need to be 
reflected in FCC 477? 


Is there a place to go for further information? 


Thanks!

Short summary: 


477 Order - will revamp the 477 data collection process and information. 
Personally this is a good thing. 


RDOF - This is the next $20,400,000,000 (20.4 Billion Dollars) that will be 
spend to overbuild your network if you are not currently providing 25/3 service 
& phone. 


WISPA has time to meet with the commissioners and discuss up to the 25th. A lot 
of effort has already gone into making sure that both of these are fair and 
open to all providers, not just the Telco’s. There is no way to stop the feds 
from spending this money - it’s coming regardless of what we do. Both political 
parties, the administration, and the FCC all want to spend money on rural 
broadband. 


YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART to either position yourself to receive this funding, 
or prevent your competitors from getting it and overbuilding you.

But it's not their job. I'm not asking them to do my laundry either. 

That's the responsibility of whatever is feeding data to Authorize.Net\IP Pay.

If you haven’t heard of that, Mike, then you haven’t used Authorize.net. 

It IS IP Pay’s responsibility to listen to the customer’s needs. If they want 
to stand out, then they will also adjust to and meet those needs. They should 
at LEAST provide a similar level of service to Authorize.net. Like I said, we 
are small and things like that help a LOT! 

Otherwise the customer leaves. Maybe one day they will understand that they 
need to be flexible. And it looks like I am not the only one with similar 
views.

I will tell you my issue with IP Pay. 

We aren’t large. Our network runs like a giant Hotspot and most customers pay 
monthly when their time runs out.. Our billing solution(WiFiRush) uses 
Authorize.net. Authorize.net sends a payment receipt with transaction number, 
etc. to the Email address the customer provides. I also receive a copy, which 
is automatically sent to a folder that is only used in case there is a 
catastrophic failure of something and all billing records get lost. 

IP Pay is inflexible and refuses to do that. They want my system to send the 
receipt to the customer, which it does not. They also say that I must manually 
look up records of any past transactions in their web site. This is cumbersome 
and (for me) it is much easier to search for the customer name in my backup 
receipts that were Emailed. I seldom need them but it is good to know they are 
there. 

I once almost started using them but this issue stopped the show. Unfortunately 
they started billing me a monthly fee even though I never officially started 
using them and never processed any transactions at all. It was a lot of 
difficulty to make them stop charging me. 

If they would simply send the receipts, like Authorize.net does, I would 
probably switch to them since they are supposedly “ISP Friendly”. I can’t 
believe this is not an option of theirs!

I stopped IPPay for some of the same reasons as Ralph and that they would not 
provide the name of the customer who bumped their bill by claiming they didn't 
know who we were after all of our ippay customers had been on the system for a 
year or more. Plus they charged me for the transaction including a fee so a $50 
loss became a $135 bill. With service like that, who needs them? I went to a 
double entry system, write all transactions manually on paper and used the 
Wispmon.com (which can use IPPay too) and they keep records in their database. 
They are now known as https://sonar.software/ . They have a fully WISP centered 
system with maps, ticketing, sales, FCC registering, fresnel testing, parts 
inventory, parts sales and too much more to list here.

IPpay is like the Big Mac truck in Africa from 1985. Yeah. It does its job. But

Stripe is like the hot new Tesla pickup. Maybe it costs just a tad more. But

using them and never processed any transactions at all. It was a lot of 
difficulty to make them stop charging me. 

If they would simply send the receipts, like Authorize.net does, I would 
probably switch to them since they are supposedly “ISP Friendly”. I can’t 
believe this is not an option of theirs!

I think you need to re-visit IP Pay, Propay, etc. for current quotes. Stripe 
absolutely is more expensive.

Lower cost on the CC processing, also, our current system is built on that with

Seems like the BMU was a solution to a problem that didn't exist in the first 
place.

I imagine it's for new customers or customers stuck in their ways. Everyone 
else running Powercode is already running the BMU and spending their time on 
other things instead of replacing what's already working.

Re: [WISPA] Looking for a operator in South Dakota who can point us to Tier 1 PoPs near Aberdeen

"Tier 1" is not a useful term anymore. You're also not going to find the top 
carriers in Aberdeen. 

In Aberdeen, I'd be looking to SDN Communications.

You had to treat classes of traffic the same. All VoIP the same. All streaming

Talking Points for WISPA Members on “Net Neutrality” and “Internet Freedom” 
December 2017 

Overview for WISPA Members 

· These talking points are not intended to be used proactively. WISPA is not 
taking a proactive role in advocacy on this issue, and we do not recommend that 
you do. 
· The intent is to help you be prepared for media and public inquiries if they 
do come in. 
· If you receive a query about your company’s position on net neutrality, or 
WISPA’s position, we encourage you to refer it to us to handle. Please send it 
to: 
o Dale Curtis, WISPA Communications Support, d...@dalecurtiscommunications.com 
· If you do choose to answer a media or public query: 
o Please let us know, preferably in advance; and 
o Please stick to this script; going off script could create problems for you 
and your business. 

General Tips 

· Any statements you make must be 100% truthful and backed-up with facts; so 
please don’t say anything that is untrue or unsupportable with facts. 
· If you don’t know the answer to a question, just say so. A convenient way to 
say it is: “I don’t know about that , but what I do know is …” 
· Don’t bring up other issues. 

Talking Points 

· Let’s be clear: We support a free and open internet. 
o We don’t block, throttle, or prioritize any content. 
o We disclose our terms of service in plain English. 
o We support robust privacy protections for our customers. 
o Those are the core elements of “net neutrality,” and we support them. 

· We believe you can have a free and open internet without heavy-handed 
regulation and enforcement that is ill-suited for small providers. 

· What was wrong with the way the internet was regulated up until two years 
ago? It worked well then, and it will again. 

· FCC regulations designed to treat all internet providers like large monopoly 
utilities – with open-ended and vaguely worded requirements, all subject to 
bureaucratic whim – are taking resources away from investment in under-served 
areas and diverting them instead toward lawyers and compliance consultants. 

· When our compliance costs go up because of government action, we either have 
to reduce investment in our business or pass those costs on to our customers.

"Fast Lanes" were an idea posed by the anti-ISP crowd and then when the big 
ISPs started to catch on to that, the anti-ISP latched onto that as the next 
evil. 

They wanted paid peering and they got paid peering. NN didn't have any effect 
on that. The FCC specifically said they didn't understand how all that stuff 
works and didn't regulate it.

· FCC regulations designed to treat all internet providers like large monopoly 
utilities – with open-ended and vaguely worded requirements, all subject to 
bureaucratic whim – are taking resources away from investment in under-served 
areas and diverting them instead toward lawyers and compliance consultants. 

· When our compliance costs go up because of government action, we either have 
to reduce investment in our business or pass those costs on to our customers.

Nothing. It wasn't mayhem in the decades before 2015 and it won't suddenly 
become a problem now. The big guys are always going to try some crap until 
someone calls them on it, "net neutrality" or not.

What are the current thoughts on the effects of net neutrality being over 
turned on our bandwidth providers? I understand how the cable and DSL companies 
may react but as a small WISP, I've been thinking this will have little impact 
on us and our customers (since we don't intend on changing our policies) but I 
may not be thinking about the bigger picture enough. Perhaps my bandwidth and 
upstream fiber providers will raise rates or charge premium fees for fast lanes 
to middle mile access. 


How far reaching could this go? My hope was there is more competition in data 
centers for bandwidth so we won't see the games the last mile (cable & telco) 
providers might play with customers and content providers.

no more 10-40? Sorry, don't know about part 90, who's been doing the informing

CBRS opens up an additional 100MHz from 3.55-3.65GHz and changes the

The "citizens band” naming of CBRS is a poorly chosen name by the FCC and has 
nothing to do with the old “trucker” CB band.

Cambium also announced their LTE line. Not physically, but made the

[WISPA] Microsoft Update Thrashing Connections

2017-07-11 Thread Mike Hammett
It's Patch Tuesday, so I figured I'd pop in to remind people that have issues 
with Microsoft Updates to get packet captures of the problems at least one 
level upstream of whatever device is doing the rate limiting. When you have 
them, let me know so we can coordinate with whichever CDN and Microsoft to look 
into why it is happening. 

We're specifically looking for times when there are dozens of TCP connections 
open for the transfer or when the CDN is ignoring TCP norms and sending more 
bits than the customer is limited to.

Subject: [WISPA] Hmm.. Mikrotik or Cisco... 


Good morning. 


I have a deep question for the Mikrotik people and the Cisco people. 


Let me give you an overview of where we are. 
Currently we have all of our tower sites using Mikrotik connecting to our core 
with MPLS/VPLS to our core that is multiple Mikrotik routers using VRRP (I had 
a core die from power supply failure and our network didn't skip a beet while 
it was replaced.) The VRRP core then connects to our edge that is a Cisco 
ASR1001-x that connects to our BGP peers. 


The reason we went with Cisco was because all the CCR Mikrotik Lagged horribly 
when doing BGP full tables. We had a Maxxwave router that did fine with the BGP 
but had crap interface support with Mikrotik not having good drivers for the 
interfaces. Different MTU for the MPLS caused problems. 


It appears that now with Mikrotik's CHR fixes the driver problems. the Virtual 
host deals with the drivers so Mikrotik doesn't have to. 


All has been fine for a few years... but now the Cisco has reset itself twice 
in the past week. For whatever reason a reboot on a Cisco = 15-20min down time. 
We are now needing a VRRP solution for the Edge. 


So here is the cross roads... Do we get another ASR1001-x and struggle for a 
while to get a form of VRRP to work between them? Or do we get something like 
this 
(https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-SuperServer-5018D-FN8T-Rackmount-10GbE/dp/B01LXUATHB
 ) 

and keep it all Mikrotik for ease of training and use? 


We do not have much experience with Cisco. It takes us quite a bit to configure 
and change them. is it worth learning and paying the 12x the price for less 
throughput? 
Cisco ASR 1001 2.5gbps throughput = $6,680 
Cisco Licence for 10gbps throughput = $13,099 
Total for 1 Cisco router + Repair of current + 1 Spare = $41,558 


vs Mikrotik 
Supermicro SuperServer 5018D-FN8T + 16G mem + SSD = $986 

CHR 10Gbps upload per interface = $95 
Total for 2 routers + 1 spare = $3,243 


Is Cisco still the better option? would it be better to say use 3 MK routers in 
VRRP with one spare so 2 can fail and not be a problem?

The proposals protect Part 101 links using a database system. 


It’s curious that you would give up access to potentially >1000Mhz of clean 
mid-band spectrum because you don’t want your competitors using it. Given the 
current limited amount of spectrum available for PTMP use how do you propose to 
serve the demands of your customers without obtaining additional spectrum? 


You said “all licensed PTP links would be at risk”. I don’t believe that is the 
case here - we are only discussing 6Ghz which is largely used (in our industry) 
for long range legacy PTP links. It’s certainly important where it’s used at 
Mike Meluskey pointed out, but looking at the numbers the band shows pretty 
light usage. 


How much of the 6Ghz spectrum are you currently using for PTP links?

Use of this band for PtMP applications should not be permitted and all 
installations should require registration and professional installation. As for 
higher power and larger channels: I do think the band could use some updates. 
But not at the expense of the current links. 

We've seen the 5.1Ghz band fill in with noise almost as soon as certifications 
rolled out. I don't want hundreds of "Xfinity wifi" SSID's in 6ghz as well. 

While I don't think our company alone counts as significant opposition, you can

Hi Everyone, 




I'm looking to this group to feel out the feasibility of an idea. 


I'm working with a project that is looking at doing a sort of "analytics". One 
of the possible things this would involve would 
be paying WISPs to collect data on a particular SSID (this SSID would be 
controlled by the project I'm working with, so this isn't going into 
any gray privacy grounds). The group would want to get the content of the 
beacons seen with this particular SSID(s). It could either be done through 
vendor equipment that would support it, or it could be done via a passive probe 
colocated with the WISP's gear. 


I thought I would float this idea out to the group to see how it is received. 


Thanks in advance,

Subject: [WISPA] FCC tower lighting question 



Can someone comment on whether this new ruling is going to pass or not: 

New FAA Marking Requirements May Impact Rural Towers Under 200 Feet 

A recently passed law, the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act of 2016 
(Act), will affect certain towers that are between fifty (50) and two hundred 
(200) feet in height by requiring that many of these towers in rural areas be 
marked and lit. The law, passed to protect agricultural aviators (crop 
dusters), will make rural towers previously not subject to Federal Aviation 
Administration (FAA) requirements more visible with painted markings and other 
visibility attachments. The Act also requires these towers to be documented in 
an FAA database. The FAA must issue regulations by July 15, 2017. As compliance 
with these rules may prove costly to wireless carriers, particularly where they 
are unnecessary, we are working with the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) 
to create an exemption for communication towers. Your feedback on specific 
towers in your service areas is requested. 

Summary of the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act 

The term "covered tower" is defined in Section 2110(d) of the Act as a 
structure that: is self-standing or supported by guy wires; is 10 feet or less 
in diameter; is between 50 - 200 feet AGL; has accessory facilities on which 
equipment is mounted; and is located outside an incorporated city or town, or 
on undeveloped or agricultural land. The term does not include a structure that 
is: adjacent to a house, barn, electric utility station, or other building; 
within the curtilage of a farmstead; a utility transmission pole; a wind 
turbine with a rotor blade radius over 6 feet; or a street lighted maintained 
by a Federal, State, local or tribal entity. 

The Act requires that all covered towers constructed on or after the date on 
which the regulations take effect must be marked in a manner consistent with 
guidance under the FAA Advisory Circular issued on December 4, 2015 (AC 
70/7460-1L) or other guidance as determined by the Administrator. Existing 
covered towers, constructed before the regulations take effect, will have an 
additional year to comply with the new regulations. 

AC 70/7460-IL recommends that towers under 200 feet be painted with alternate 
bands of aviation orange and white paint. The band width should be equivalent 
to 1/7 of the tower height and the paint must be reapplied if it begins to 
fade. The Advisory Circular also recommends that high-visibility sleeves and 
aviation orange spherical market balls be installed on any outer guy wires. 

The new law also creates an FAA database of all towers covered under this 
provision. The database will contain location and height information of each 
Covered Tower. The FAA administrator will ensure that any proprietary 
information in the database is protected from disclosure in accordance with the 
law. 

Exemption Proposal and Input Request 

As mentioned above, we are working with CCA to create an exemption or carve out 
for communication towers. Based on meetings with Senate Commerce Committee 
staff, CCA is working to include in the exemption any tower possessing clear, 
visual cues such as bases, attachments, antennas, or any equipment critical to 
service. Other suggestions for exemption include temporary towers or CoWs, 
towers that comply with local zoning ordinances and/or National Historic 
Preservation Act, towers with an antenna array over five feet (5') in diameter, 
guy wired towers, and towers with antennas that have reflective material. With 
regard to the FAA database, an alternative proposal is to make a database of 
communication towers available to aviators for reference and not require those 
tower owners to mark their towers.

No easy swaps to different gains. 

No easy radio swaps.

That's at the top of my list right now. It does everything I want and it's dirt

hearing reports, it's literally very promising. Probably worth trying, if I get 
a chance. At that price ($500 for 24 ports) you can't go wrong.

I'm not looking for copper, except maybe a couple ports for the local

rural FTTP build, dropped into a pedestal somewhere in the middle of noplace, 
to feed a cluster of nearby buildings. MikroTik isn't in that space yet; CRS 
seems to be lots of copper.

Re: [WISPA] source for lightweight NPRM

I get mine from Baltic. 

I'd imagine your best option is a local shop if you need 200 of them.

Just to add to that 

a) Take all what Brian said below, and add to it the fact that, in many cities 
they are very quietly installing Micro-Pops, every few blocks, fiber feed 
(essentially replacing street light poles with, poles which are light poles and 
micropops). 

b) The noise and developments in LTE-U 

c) The very strange, over-priced acquisition of FPL-Fibernet by Crown Castle 

d) Relatively quite conversion, installation of GPON system on every building 
that ATT had a Metro Ethernet presence in. 

e) Hype and noise about Gigabit fiber delivery, installation of fiber based 
service in select areas, ATT Conversion of their select IFTL neighborhoods to 
Gigabit fiber.. 

f) The rumblings about Cable Co's moving over the Docsis 3 

Granted that this is not ubiquitous across the nation.. but I can see the 
competitive service providers could easily be starved out by the choke hold on 
being able to deliver/buy/have access to fat pipe especially in the middle 
mile. 

I think in most major metro areas the perceived minimum base level of service 
offering is going to hit high triple digit numbers in terms of bandwidth i.e. 
200meg,300meg,500meg etc... we are already seeing customer expectations / 
perceptions around 100meg.

So far so good! The 16 port is just a switch, smaller ones are routers. The 16 
is what we are using. powers 4 48vdc and 12-16 24vdc. Spring storm season will 
tell. Considering the number of fried Netonics and Digital Loggers over the 
years, with not just surge damage, but issues in software... this caused the 
switch back about 6 months ago. Using Traco power supply systems with battery

Most of the good quality outdoor Ethernet cables have a 'strength tape' in the 
middle... 

UBNT Carrier has a nice piece of plastic in the middle... 

Shireen cable has a nice fiber tape .. 

etc etc. 



If you can tie these cables at the top securely, then there should be no issue 
is letting it dangle in the center of the monopole.

The ideal signal range is around -60dBm, any stronger isn't necessary. 

The SMTRL will cause the subscriber to back of TX power until it meets 
the Target Receive Level. 

I would not recommend a Target Receive Level any lower than -65dBm, or 
your network will probably not work very well.

The ideal signal range is around -60dBm, any stronger isn't necessary. 

The SMTRL will cause the subscriber to back of TX power until it meets 
the Target Receive Level. 

I would not recommend a Target Receive Level any lower than -65dBm, or 
your network will probably not work very well.

installation in our Proxmox environment: 
mkdir cnMaestro 
cd cnMaestro 
lynx https://support.cambiumnetworks.com/files/cnmaestro/ # Login and download

tar -xvf *.ova 
qemu-img convert -f vmdk cnmaestro-on-premises_1.2.1-r1_amd64-disk1.vmdk -O 
qcow2 qcowdisk.qcow2 
2. The using the Proxmox UI create a virtual machine with the following system 
specs: 
Item
Value   

Name
cor-cnm-00.excel.net

OS  
Linux 4.x /3.x / 2.6 Kernel

Fixed: 4096 

Network 
Bridged mode, Model: Intel E1000

Hardware
Display: VMware compatible (vmware) 
3. We now need to get the disk image into the newly created virtual machine 
using the following commands as root from the folder created above: 
modprobe nbd max_part=63 
qemu-nbd -c /dev/nbd0 /root/cnMaestro/qcowdisk.qcow2 
dd if=/dev/nbd0 of=/dev/zvol/Storage/vm- NNN -disk-1 bs=1M # Replace NNN with 
the actual vmid for machine created in last step, this will take a while 
4. Fire it up using the Proxmox console. It will initially have some issues 
waiting for network configuration, do not worry and just wait it out. Once 
booted login to the console using the username of cambium and password of 
cnmaestro . 
5. At the Operations menu setup the Network and Password options as appropriate 
for the environment and then Reboot the server to make sure it comes up with 
the new settings. 
6. Immediately login to the WebUI using the username admin and password admin . 
Change the password and create a second administrator account for access! NOTE: 
Google Chrome seems to have issues with the site . 
7. At this point the server is up and running as needed.

I can ping from ::0:32::77 from our office router (::0:32::32) 
I can not ping ::0:32::77from my office desk which can ping other

And when I set the customer ASUS router to native IPV6 DHCP-PD enabled and plug 
it into the server network. 
Nothing happens.

Art, 
Are you talking about the DHCPv6-PD allocation ranged I talked about? If so 
those prefixes are intentionally different than what would be present in the 
routing table. Those prefixes would normally be injected into the tower agent 
by the router performing DHCP relaying and / or the DHCPv6-PD server. If you 
are just labbing add the customer prefix to to the router where appropriate. 
As far as routing protocols you will only be able to use EIGRP, OSPF, RIPv6 and 
BGP. 
You likely want the relay agent, tower router, to learn the routes. In Cisco 
land you have to tell the router to snoop on the DHCP packet it relays and to 
inject the route.

You should also do it on customer-facing ports not allowing anything to come

If you have a default route anywhere, that won't work. 

If you have more than one upstream with differing routes, that may not work. 

Once Mikrotik adds the ability to set it per interface, that'll help.

Re: [WISPA] Anyone ever had your phone number spoofed?

2016-10-21 Thread Mike Hammett
I don't know of it being spoofed, but spoofing phone numbers is even easier 
than spoofing IP addresses. ;-)

Subject: [WISPA] Anyone ever had your phone number spoofed? 

Yesterday we started receiving a large number of calls saying that we were 
calling them and they got disconnected or talked to someone who tried to scam 
them (yesterdays's scam was a government grant sent to their nearest western 
union). 

We called our provider (RingCentral) and they said our phone number had been 
spoofed. 

Anyone ever had their number spoofed? How long did it last? Did you have to 
change your phone number? 

This is the second day in a row. We changed our voice mail letting people know 
and asking them to call the FCC - we called the FCC yesterday and reported it, 
but they need the people receiving the calls to call and complain. 

any thoughts appreciated.

You should also do it on customer-facing ports not allowing anything to come 
in, but that would be best approached once Mikrotik and the per interface 
setting for unicast reverse path filtering. You would then said customer facing 
interfaces to strict and all other interfaces to loose. They accepted the 
feature request, just haven't implemented it yet.

Powercode does not have a real coverage map. They do generate the deployment 
.csv file, based upon the assumption of reporting any block in which you have a 
customer as being deployed. That approach will definitely generate incomplete 
results, but I'm seeing a way way worse problem. Powercode was giving us 22 
blocks reported on the deployment CSV, when I did it by hand in GIS software, I 
have 841 blocks. Something seems to be very broken. I just finished the 
analysis right now, I will be emailing them shortly. 


If you guys are blindly dumping your Powercode deployment CSV into 477, you 
really should check the data yourself somehow. I have talked to one other 
powercode user who was seeing this problem. He actually had a mapping 
background and helped me do the analysis in MapInfo.

Working on our 477, mapped the deployment data from powercode in our GIS 
software, we found it was grossly inaccurate, probably only has 10% of the 
blocks in the file compared to ones where we have customers. Has anyone else 
noticed this? 


We were previously not mapping the output and just blindly submitting it 
bad idea... we were grossly under reporting our coverage.

Powercode does not have a real coverage map. They do generate the deployment 
.csv file, based upon the assumption of reporting any block in which you have a 
customer as being deployed. That approach will definitely generate incomplete 
results, but I'm seeing a way way worse problem. Powercode was giving us 22 
blocks reported on the deployment CSV, when I did it by hand in GIS software, I 
have 841 blocks. Something seems to be very broken. I just finished the 
analysis right now, I will be emailing them shortly. 


If you guys are blindly dumping your Powercode deployment CSV into 477, you 
really should check the data yourself somehow. I have talked to one other 
powercode user who was seeing this problem. He actually had a mapping 
background and helped me do the analysis in MapInfo.

When I do the export from powercode it dumps two .csv files. DeploymentData.csv

Re: [WISPA] Big Guns align behind 3.5 ghz CBRS LTE

2016-08-25 Thread Mike Hammett
The former IDEN channels Sprint is using were in the 800s (862 rings a bell, 
but maybe not). Some are 3 MHz due to competitors (I forget the southern 
company still running IDEN), but most of their 800 LTE is 5 GHz FDD. They're 
also running 1x-Advanced for voice and text in 8xx MHz.

Yes, add that to the spectrum list. At least in Sprint's case. They own most of 
the BRS/EBS licenses and leases, and are using it for their LTE. A few others 
are there too, on a more local basis. Nextel had some iDEN frequencies in the 
900 MHz range and that too is in Sprint's network now, but those were IIRC only 
3 MHz channels, so mostly good for voice coverage. Sprint still can't hold a 
candle to the big two in that regard, though, and even T-M is ahead now with 
its 700 MHz coverage. 

AT holds a lot of the 2300 MHz WCS licenses. I think one of the Nextwaves 
held some and was leasing them to WISPs, but AT bought them. Verizon of 
course had bought a previous Nextwave.

We are involved in this band, at WinnForum. That's where the standards are 
being written. The FCC announced the rules last year and did a minor update of 
them earlier this year. Now we're working with WinnForum to fix an oversight 
that makes the band pretty much unusable by rural WISPs. ("What, your 
installers don't carry a sat phone?") We expect to make progress, though. 

The name Citizens Broadband Radio Service is really unfortunate. Press articles 
about the CBRS Alliance are making jokes about "breaker-breaker good buddy", 
and the article that Gino pointed to had a picture of a President Washington CB 
transceiver. This band has nothing to do with CB and doesn't work a bit like 
it. The only thing close to CB is that its rules were assigned to a new Part 
96, while CB itself is Part 95 of 47 C.F.R. (the FCC rules). It probably should 
have gotten a Part number in the 20s, though, down by cellular. 

The FCC rules are by design technology-agnostic. The CBRS alliance looks like a 
pro-LTE group. LTE is going to be the dominant technology, and some companies 
think LTE will totally dominate the band, but some of our vendor members have 
other uses for CBRS. Existing 3650-3700 MHz is being merged into CBRS, of 
course, which is what led to its being frozen in April 2015. Some WiMAX 
equipment could be upgraded, for instance, to be compliant. WinnForum has a 
Coexistence Task Group working on ways to mitigate interference between 
dissimilar technologies. 

The big carriers are looking at this for "small cells", essentially a way to 
add spectrum capacity relatively cheaply so they can sell more gigabytes of cat 
videos to smartphone users. Assuming we fix the glitch in the rules, this will 
also be a useful WISP band, especially in rural areas where the big boys don't 
need additional capacity. After all, they already have 700 MHz, 800 MHz 
(original cellular A), 1900 MHz PCS, 1700 MHz AWS-1, and soon 600 MHz if the 
Incentive Auction now under way is successful at buying out TV licenses. In the 
city, all those cat videos are clogging existing spectrum, but elsewhere CBRS 
is likely to be their fourth or fifth choice. 

Licensing is complex. As you probably know, there are "incumbents" (includes 
currently-registered 3650 licenses), PALs, and GAA ("licensed by right" as a 
variant of unlicensed). PAL merely grants priority over GAA in the Spectrum 
Authorization System; it doesn't block off any frequencies. Rumor has it that 
one of the very big national carriers plans to go all-GAA themselves. Since the 
license area is a Census Tract, a PAL might be quite affordable for a rural 
WISP, if you think it's worthwhile. 

But making matters more complex is the need to protect fixed satellite earth 
stations, as low as 3600 MHz. Plus the need to protect naval radar, the band's 
primary owner. So the SASs will require radar detectors (ESC) in the field 
before anyone can use the band outdoors within about a hundred miles of the 
coasts. A ship pulling in to port might then force frequency changes. So the 
actual use of this shared spectrum is going to be a complex multivariate 
problem.

Thanks for posting this Gino, 

I read the article and thought it was interesting. My only concern is there 
will be that many more bidders in the PAL license area. I think that this 
alliance has the capability to be a very good thing for wisps. But it will make 
us have to spend the money to actually purchase our spectrum. This is a new 
thought for many of us. 

These 3 main players are already in the LTE market with Intel, Qualcomm, and 
Nokia already having silicon that can do the CRBS band. A stable uniform 
platform may arise from this that may interoperate between carriers and may 
give WISPs the first time chance to partner with celcos with interconnect 
agreements. Our networks will have to be able to handle it but I think there is 
more revenue possible, at least for Rural WISPs. Companies in very metro areas 
are probably out of luck. 

The thought of having a large amount of equipment that all uses the same spec, 
the same timing mechanisms with GPS sync, allows us to buy into the technology 
and share the spectrum. Maybe we can make this band work the way that we wished 
all the bands worked and interoperate with everyone who follows the spec and 
not be fighting the big boys all the time….

what is required by code for grounding these masts and the cat5 lines to the 
radios where they enter the rooftop mechanical building. 


It is an older 10-story apartment tower. I did not pay very close attention to 
grounding when I was on site, I do not believe there is any sort of lightning

installing a small POE switch to power the APs. Hoping someone on the list has

Re: [WISPA] DNS Name Resolver for WISP

2016-07-08 Thread Mike Hammett
I (and others) keep saying it because it's a fact. 

CDNs use latency to your DNS resolvers (among other things) to optimize the 
delivery of content. If your DNS resolver isn't on your network, you simply 
aren't best able to take advantage of that infrastructure. You're more likely 
to be going to a worse node increasing latency, decreasing throughput, 
increasing chances of unreliability, etc. 

Setting up local resolvers is a relatively simple and painless process. Just do 
it.

Re: [WISPA] Rogue Accesspoint Detection

2015-01-06 Thread Mike Hammett
A WISP doesn't own (or lease) everywhere. A company owns or leases their 
corporate space. 

If a Russian or Chinese spy snuck a MiFi into Lockheed Skunkworks and somehow 
passed their other forms of security, you'd be okay with them chugging away 
uploading whatever they found?

attack would be harmful, and interference. 

I can agree that you can detect it and shut it off on a port on your network, 
but you should not be able to interfere with other operations, regardless if it 
is your property or not. Maybe that’s not the intent from those actions, but 
it’s clear that if it’s not on your network then you can’t do much about it. 
Now, if they are on your property, sure you can tell them to turn it off or 
leave, but that’s another issue. lol

In reading that second one, they also keep bringing up that Marriott charged 
for Internet (and a lot at that). 

Specifically, such employees had used this capability to prevent users from 
connecting to the Internet via their own personal Wi-Fi networks when these 
users did not pose a threat to the security of the Gaylord Opryland network or

Sounds like security is a viable defense.

I have a customer that is being required to get rogue access point detection. 
not a one time thing but ongoing detection. What products have people used.

Literally anybody can do it... just depends on how much time and power they 
have to throw at the hashes. 

Even easier when you know the provider (like ATT) has a default password 
that's 10 digits, numbers only. Generate (or download) a dictionary with every 
possible combination... and use it only on your own network to ensure its 
security.

 While I understand your reasoning, I would disagree. If you could do this, 
 for the security of a WISP, we will shut down all 
Access Points via Deauth attack that my Access Points can see. Also note, I am 
not talking for the FCC, but for what I believe is 
right, in this case, you can’t own a location or area of the wifi bands, 
therefore, you can’t cause harmful interference, and a 
deauth attack would be harmful, and interference.
