Mark,

You just made my point, it appears to me that WISPA, many WISP's, and small
business owners in general have done their best to work with the system.
And what rewards do we get for it? I dont know about you but the system is
killing me! Mark my words, unless things change, the system that is
beginning to fail us now will eventually totally fail us. Sorry for sounding
so pessimistic but after watching our government at work after 35 years,
the only thing positive is that it can change if we want it to but it's
gonna be a long, hard fight.

 when you can, to affect change, but to try to wholesale uproot the system is
 going to cause you persistent pain and anguish.

 You forget, that if you don't have the ability to connect to other

 hehe.. when you start off a paragraph with this administration  or do
 a follow up with the previous administration.. that is as partisan as

 I agree with your 'Principle Numero Uno', but you are harking at the
 wrong organization.. it is not in  WISPA's charter or mission, maybe
 should be a member of the SBA association, or FISPA or COMPTEL ... but
 then again you will have to get your head straight about how the US Gov.
 has operated for the last 200 years

 WISPA's mission has been to address issues related to Wireless, (not
 business, not telephone service, not hosted services, etc etc)...
 While I understand your frustration with the Gov., and do agree with

  to watch closely what we inform membership, prepare to be involved

  If we give in to these irrational rules don't think Congress or the

  successfully they could go after existing frequencies too.  WISPA will

 With all due respect, it's exactly the mindset that government allows us
 to be in business that IS the problem. Telecom Act or no, regulation or no,
 there should be no question that we are allowed to make a living the way we
 want to regardless.

 a follow up with the previous administration.. that is as partisan as
 one can get

 I agree with your 'Principle Numero Uno', but you are harking at the
 wrong organization.. it is not in  WISPA's charter or mission, maybe
 should be a member of the SBA association, or FISPA or COMPTEL ... but
 then again you will have to get your head straight about how the US Gov.
 has operated for the last 200 years

 WISPA's mission has been to address issues related to Wireless, (not
 business, not telephone service, not hosted services, etc etc)...
 While I understand your frustration with the Gov., and do agree with
 some of your points, but what you keep putting forward on the WISPA

no body was scrambling to build private networks to connect to them
But those were early days. If left alone, we may have had something more

 So my question to the wireless folks is .. if there was no Internet Boom,
 which had a significant relationship with the Telcom Boom.. where would you
 all be today ?

 The Wire line ISP's learned the hardway...that their ability to continue
 offering services was tied to 'Regulations'... and forces were already in
 play which the ISP's in general choose to ignore (it does not affect us..)
 and the outcome of those decision ended up being their demise.

 At the end of the day, we are all in the same boat.. (providing

 really think things thru before you / us / we / just take a blanket position

2011-07-16 Thread RickG
 by Congress and their answer seems to be one
  of 'lets just put all frequencies up for bid, licensed and unlicensed'.
  None of us WISP's could afford to bid against the likes of ATT and
  Verizon and it has the potential of locking all small business out of
  any future frequencies.
 
  Yesterday the Legislative, FCC, and Promotions Committee of WISPA got
  together and released a letter to all Congressional Members of several
  committees relevant to this battle, in addition we paid to have a
 formal
  press release sent to the media objecting to this path that both the
  Senate and House seem to be pursuing.  We are now interviewing
 potential
  Lobbyists (something we've never needed before) and, other firms that
  can help us with this new front we have to fight on.
 
  Where WISPA will have to go to get the ear of Congress to stop this
  insane path is all new to us but we are up to the challange.  We have
  great legal counsel, members that can attend and testify hearings,
  allies in other groups such as New America feel the pain like us on
 this
  issue.  We will be making alliances, learning how to do social
  networking to reach our members, our members subscribers and, anyone
 who
  will side with us to form grass roots efforts to get the attention of
  Congress.  At this point we are not asking for a special assessment or
  other means to aggressively answer this call, we are within budget so
  far but it's hard to say how far this will go.  We simply are asking
 you
  to watch closely what we inform membership, prepare to be involved
  because unless you are content with the current frequencies and rules
 we
  are under you will directly be affected by this Congressional action.
 
  If we give in to these irrational rules don't think Congress or the
  legacy characters will stop there, if they sell the revenue model
  successfully they could go after existing frequencies too.  WISPA will
  be releasing talking points next week so that you can help us by making
  appointments with your Congressperson while they are in district during
  the month of August.  We really need to educate them that this path is
  bad for America and their constituents.  If you need constant updates
  please join the Legislative Committee as we will be posting most of the
  Legislative work in that venue.  Thank you for your time and we
  appreciate you realizing the huge task we have ahead of us.

Re: [WISPA] The Legislative Situation Is Dire

2011-07-16 Thread RickG
 for the benefit OF THE OWNER, that's us.The FCC and Congress
 are
  managing for the benefit of the federal treasury and the donations to
  campaigns - which is the polar opposite of managed for the good of the
  people.
 
  In the previous post, I wrote an analogy, one where the city effectively
  puts every service and business up for licensure at auction.  It takes no
  imagination at all to see that the city coffers and the winning bidder
 are
  the beneficiaries and the people are the losers.   Spectrum is a public
 or
  national resource held in trust by the federal government.   Auctions to
 the
  highest bidder do not benefit anyone but the monopoly holder and the
  treasury, by creating monopolies or very limited competition.   Again, we
 as
  consumers and businessmen are the losers.  Imagine if there were enough
  spectrum delegated so that if us WISP's wanted to be mobile broadband
  providers we could, as well as cellular, or even video / audio
 broadcasters.
  Instead, such services have been delegated a minute slice of available
  spectrum, keeping up the price of the auctions - and the number of
  competitors down.
 
  Why?   It is in the interest of politicians to separate us from our
 money.
  But their REAL job is to defend us keeping it.  There are NOW myriad
  political allies to spread this message, to change the discussion from
 whom
  to screw out of lots of money to what is the best policy for the people
  and keep competition alive?   And, that's the message that is NOT being
  advocated by WISPA, and it should be.
 
  You seem to think that the answer is to find the right pol to influence
 and
  the right committee members to lobby and the right allies to obstruct X
 or
  advance Y, but those are expediency, not principle.   They should be
 TACTICS
  to a principled purpose, one that will attract others, on the basis of
 its
  soundness and validity.
 
  And lastly, about the FCC, the last administration's appointees were
  advocates for free markets and for competition and deregulation.  Not
  particularly effective ones, but at least they were not our enemy.   The
  current administration's people at the FCC are IN NO WAY our friend, for
 any
  way, manner, or purpose, and everything they want is bad for us and the
  country.  STop talking political party talking points, and get some
 reality.

  non-partisan manner, which can be understood by the general public, and
  put forward a reasonably understandable plan of action  I guarantee
  you, you will have many here who would be willing to listen and follow

 I wanted to know what antennas users/Pros use for PtP needs.(Apart from

 Both Flat Panel and MiMO dish as well as Panel.
 i was looking at different companies like Lanbowan, Jirous, ARCWireless.
 Lanbowan has 27 dbi Flat Panel, which others are not offering.
 ARC has got good reviews on mikrotik forum but jirous has got best port to
 port isolation(MIMO).
 Can you all please share your thoughts on antennas. Cuz a good Radio is
 nothing without a good antenna.
 My requirement is to have a good PtP links distance from 10-50 KMs range
 in very crowded environments.
 I have been trying different brands with different results and its
 difficult to test the brands in live environments, just thinking to take an
 advise here on the forum and buy the same and test it. Its not about just
 one link or two, i needed some permanent vendor.

 Hello Jerry,

 Thank YOu for the suggestion.
 You have exactly understood my problem, I read specs and bring the product
 and test then compare it with other I always had issues.
 My main issues is the place where I live I don’t have liberty of importing
 using direct channels. I have to use backdoors for importing and I usually
 import large numbers and keep them in stock.
 The stock usually last for  2-4 months.
 Problem now is UBNT is out of stock and waiting time is 6 weeks +.
 Appreciate your reply Jerry.

  Jawad,

 There is no simple answer to this.

 ** **

 You have to take manufactuer specs with a grain of salt as many will skew
 the numbers leading you to believe the product is better than it is. The
 other issue is that in many cases the product is a re-branded product made
 by someone else.

 ** **

 Truth be told, if you want PtP in noisy environments you might consider
 using the new Ubiquity RocketM-GPS radios. You will be able to run channels
 closer together and in some cases re-use channels which will help a lot. The
 kits are low-cost and high performance, and the dishes work great. 

 ** **

 For panels, ARC has always performed as I expected it to.

 Why not use MT Routers to PPTP tunnel the remote networks back to your NOC

 Less costly and you get the benefit of a single server to view all the

No matter what quality, the shirt inevitably get ripped  torn from heavy
use such as doing installs and climbing towers. I buy the cheapest shirts so
I can replace them often.

On Sun, May 22, 2011 at 8:51 PM, Tom DeReggi wirelessn...@rapiddsl.netwrote:

  OK, Lets look at this from a different angle Durability.

 I've never been a fan of brand name, until Ralph Lauren Polo brand Polo
 shirts. They might cost two three four times as much, but they last longer
 than any other brand polo style shirt I've ever bought, years compared to
 months. Even high end department store brands are lucky to make it longer
 than 1 or 2 towerclimbs before they look like they are on their last leg,
 with snags. And if the tower doesn't kill it, surely the Coffee Mug spill on
 the drive in will, or the mustard stain from lunch on the run will.

 So, how is the quality durablity of the shirts, from the online stores
 you members are recommending?

 Any hints on the type (specifications) shirt that will last in the field
 for the working man WISP?

 With that said... I had gotton some polo shirts made by Anvil which were
 100% cotton for $8 each, and they seemed just as durable as any other brand
 I bought, (other than RL Polo). (google search for Anvil can find sellers
 of).  I figured if I wasn't going to find top quality, I'd go quantity,
 and at $8 a peice, so what if I had to replace them after a few weeks in the
 field.  (I had my neighbor embroider them who had a busienss doing that.

Re: [WISPA] Fuel surcharge for Customer Repairs?

Thats how I've always handled it. With that said, there are things we are
not responsible for because the equipment is in the customer's care. Up
until now, we havent charge for acts of God but we're close to doing so.
Actually, we're considering pushing our $5/month protection plan. My
analogy is similar to leasing a car: the leasing company expects to you to
cover everything!

 Matt, are you around?

 This method of farming can certainly grow produce where it would
 otherwise be impossible or impractical.  It also is more resource
 efficient.  However, I am curious how Matt can get a 136x increase in
 yield vs. conventional farming.

  most of the test are half duplex tests. In few words, they do one
  direction, then the other direction (e.g. first the customer download,
  then the customer upload).
 
  Suppose you have a 10Mb half duplex: the test will tell you that you
  have 10Mb in one direction and 10Mb in the other direction. Then you
 use

 The key central question is ... how to 'Capitalize' on it  and make some

 There are always two ways the Market move .. Either PUSH (try to sell your
 excess capacity on the network , making it attractive , lower the selling
 price, while increasing margins ... or Packaging your products differently
 for a different Target Market).

 or PULL .. where the customers are knocking on your doors to demand more.

 So.. here is bit of Challenge for All of US, including Rick  Travis

 If we have the capacity to deliver the high bandwidth to our customers..
 and in our market place the Phone Company is still selling T1' s and Metro
 Ethernet's  like hot cakes.. then there is only one possible conclusion
 .

 We need to Review our products / pricing / packaging strategy... since we
 are leaving a LOT on the Table..

 now, if you tell me that in your / our market place.. the Telco's are
 hurting in business because folks are lining up purchase your / our
 circuits.. .then and only then I can say you are starting to 'saturate' your
 territory.. time to expand and break new ground.

Re: [WISPA] Fwd: Data Caps and Streaming

2011-03-30 Thread RickG
If you use QOS then they are not using the internet the way they choose.
They want it wide open. Besides, this is not about choice. In my scenario,
they still have a choice. If people understood how a network works then they
would glad to do as I say. For instance, what if there were no traffic
lights or laws such as speed limits and those that keep slower traffic in
the right lane? The roads would be a mess! Tell me the difference? For me, I
want a nice, neat, efficient network that allows me to take advantage of it
when I need it to. I'd pay a premium to do so just like those who pay to use
high capacity lanes in the big city.

 Fred, I respectfully disagree. First off, applications being run on my
 network ARE my business. Many apps can have detrimental effect on it and
 therefore I have a right and responsibility to say what can run on it.
 Secondly, priority bits simply cost more to provide and tax the network more
 than non-priority. Everyone expects their high priority apps (video/voice)
 to be first in line without delays and that's really what all the fuss is
 about. Meanwhile, we have been focusing on raw usage but that is only a part
 of the equation. Just billing for monthly overages does not consider daily
 peak usage times. In fact, in questioning many customers, they would be
 happy to pay a premium for a high-priority, low latency connection for
 certain apps. Heck, I can even see premiums for usage based on the time of
 day but that may be pushing it. This may sound extreme but everyone laughed
 at me back in 1997 when I bought an Allot box for UBB.
 BTW:While economic optimization is good, network optimization is better.
 Over the years, I've seen fast networks and slow networks, I'd pay more any
 day to be on a fast network.

Re: [WISPA] Fwd: Data Caps and Streaming

2011-03-30 Thread RickG
I'm not sure my argument is the same as theirs but actually that's my point.
Currently, I cant allow certain applications such as PTP due to lack of
network and billing inefficiencies. In my scenario, you would be able to run
any application but there will be a cost associated with it. As far as the
ILEC's - as long as they take public funds I feel we have a right to their
networks. I dont feel we have the same right with CableCo's. AFAIK, TW
doesn't have to allow me to have access but they do for a price.

  Rick,
 Be-careful when going down this road... this is slippery slopes...

 This is the exact argument used by the ILEC's / and Cable Co's to keep
 folks like you and me to connect to their networks.

 The one attribute of the Internet has been 'no one is going to mess with
 the apps running on it'... that is the primary sole attribute of the
 Internet that has made it what it is...

 There is noting wrong with they way you look at your network, but if
 everyone looked at their network in this manner, we all would not be in
 business...

 Just pointing out that there is a sensible middle ground in this debate,
 but be very careful as you start to define terms and conditions.. What you
 do for your customers is exactly what the Upstream providers can do for us
 who are downstream and their customers..

Flamefests accomplish nothing! I agree with what you say below and at this
point not sure what else I can add. Making it happen is what I want to see.
I may be wrong but I truly beleive proper UBB it's the only way to true QOS
on the internet, especially as applications continue to grow and become even
bigger resource hogs. I beleive we previously established that you have a
few years on me but this subject reminded me of back in '79 when I worked at
IBM as an Engineer. Companies charged for usage of their multi-million
dollar mainframes to both their internal and external customers in order
to keep a handle on resources. The current attitude of internet users is
that network resources are cheap. Over-usage is an unsustainable model even
with Moore's Law in play. The next few years will be interesting to say the
least!

 Let's set that aside for a moment...


 Secondly, priority bits simply cost more to provide and tax the network
 more than non-priority. Everyone expects their high priority apps
 (video/voice) to be first in line without delays and that's really what all
 the fuss is about.


 I entirely agree.  My original note, if you look carefully, said that
 priority and other higher-than-BE QoS *should* cost extra.  Lack of a good
 charging model is one reason why we have a big BE Internet and not much
 else.  But I'd like to see one.

 BTW, entertainment video is much more tolerant than voice.  It can use
 retransmission and buffering, or find other strategies to cope.  Real-time
 video (telepresence) is the bear.


 Meanwhile, we have been focusing on raw usage but that is only a part of
 the equation. Just billing for monthly overages does not consider daily peak
 usage times.


 I don't object to time-of-day pricing either.  One rough example: Usage
 midnight to six, not counted.  Usage 6AM to 9AM, counted half.


 In fact, in questioning many customers, they would be happy to pay a
 premium for a high-priority, low latency connection for certain apps. Heck,
 I can even see premiums for usage based on the time of day but that may be

 Sure.  But if your network is capacity-constrained, or the cost of capacity
 is particularly high somewhere, then you have to make do with what you
 have.  Which is why you care what apps are run.

 I am one of those old-timers who thinks that the Computer II decision was
 one of the smartest moves the FCC ever made.  It literally made the ISP
 industry possible, and its revocation in 2005 directly created the network
 neutrality kerfuffle.  CI II banned LECs from dealing in the upper layers;
 any enhanced services had to be on a fully separated basis.  So it was
 literally against the law for the telco to ask what the application (in the
 layer 7 sense) was.  But it could certainly offer services with optional
 QoS features that were optimized for different applications.  So it might
 offer a CBR service (voice-optimized) and a BE (UBR) service
 (Internet-optimized).  But if somebody ran voice over a BE service, that was
 their own issue, not the telco's.

 On the other hand, the ISP is explicitly not a common carrier, and thus has
 the right to be more specific.  ISPs are above that boundary, not below.  So
 sure, as an ISP, you should have the right to sell applications.  There is
 no bright line between ISP and ASP, or between ISP and time-sharing service.
 (That ancient business has been revived under the moniker cloud.)  So
 sure, you can do DPI if you want, provided that you do it in a way that
 respects customer privacy.  Note that I do not think that DPI should go all
 the way in to the payload, as some systems do, or ferret out value from
 transactions, etc., as some vendors propose.  I call that wiretapping.

 However, I'll quote R. Milhouse Nixon here and suggest that in most cases,
 you can do it, but it would be wrong.  The reason is that the value
 proposition that customers want from the Internet is one of flexibility and
 openness.  They probably don't want their ISP to be a mail-and-web
 service, although that's what Blackberries usually get (in exchange for
 unmetered usage of those applications).  While I am not one who believes
 that all innovation happens at the edge, I don't want edge innovations to
 be blocked

It sounds like it has improved somewhat from when I was using the Allot box
back in '97. It would be nice if there was more automation in the process.

On Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 2:48 PM, Rick Kunze rku...@colusanet.com wrote:

 It's been a lengthy learning curve, I've been forming this mechanism
 since around 2001 but it all works very well now.  I use 5 levels of
 priority for customers, Level 0 through Level 4.  Level 5 is for
 special use when needed and 6 is infrastructure equipment.  Level 7
 (top level) is reserved so I can reach things in the event of some
 other host or interface causing a packet storm or the like.

 Then the balancing act is grouping day-user businesses with
 night-user residentials, or whatever is needed to lump all customers
 into a few smaller groups.  Then the total bandwidth is partitioned
 into the same number of slices as there are groups of
 customers.  This becomes the CIR but is fundamentally based on
 priority.  The burst then comes in from the scattering of priority
 levels within each group.  Basically residentials are sacraficed
 during the week days for any other higher priority packet.  But
 ceilings are also put in place to keep any one customer from sucking
 all the Ether out of the wire.  That's also inherent in the grouping
 strategy.

 It's always a moving target though, and needs re-shuffling from time
 to time as the usage patterns of some users change over time.

 Some groups are geographical, but mostly it's random based on usage
 patterns.  What I've seen change the most over the last 6-12 months
 especially is that residential is overtaking business.  The night
 time bandwidth demands are equal to and starting to exceed daytime
 business demands.  The former having ramped up considerably lately
 with movies and the like.  A streaming Netflix standard def movie is
 roughly a 1.2 meg stream for a couple hours, but the duty cycle as
 I like to call it is only about 50% to 80%.

Re: [WISPA] Always climb with a buddy......

You know what happens when you assume :)

But he was young and strong and it might be safe to assume on something...

 An elevator in the tower stops about 45 feet short of the top. Ginopolis
 said the man did not appear to have access to the elevator, which is kept
 locked.

 “The only thing it’s safe to assume is that he got there under his own
 power,” Ginopolis said. “You have to climb the tower get to the top.”

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

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

 Dear Mr. President,

 I have built, own, and operate an Internet Service Provider (ISP) company.
 I have done this with my OWN money, blood, sweat, and tears for over 13
 years. We presently cover 5000 square miles of previously unsupported areas.
 So far your broadband stimulus moneys' have done nothing for my customers
 but cause interference from wanabe ISPs using the peoples money to mess
 things up.

 Sure, most of them will be out of business in a couple of years, but it's
 still adds more work for those who have to live through it. We may even do
 pretty well buying up all that equipment that was purchased with the peoples
 monies and squandered.

 Leave business to the business people. We don't want your money, it came
 with too many strings attached. Rather than sell radio spectrum, also an
 asset of the people, you should designate more of it for the unlicensed
 bands that us WISPs use.

Re: [WISPA] NSM2 StarOS

2011-02-08 Thread RickG
Correct. As an aside, UBNT 5GHz doesnt like StarOS/CM9 combos which I
previously used for backhauls. The trick was to make the Ubiquiti
radio the AP and the StarOS the station, then it works. Glad those
days are over!

  Phil,

 Swap out the CPEs first, then you can swap the APs.   That is what I'm
 doing and it seems to be working very well.   The UBNT radios don't seem to
 have a problem associating to the older APs.   I use StarOS for the APs
 instead of Tranzeo, but that shouldn't make much difference.

  Swap out the CPEs first, then you can swap the APs.   That is what I'm
 doing
  and it seems to be working very well.   The UBNT radios don't seem to

  problem associating to the older APs.   I use StarOS for the APs instead
 of
  Tranzeo, but that shouldn't make much difference.

 I didn't say that, but it is well known.

 Second, Connect Kentucky came to me and asked us to be a partner to Connect
 Kentucky.  I said sure, send over the paperwork.  It was a minimum $10k to
 be listed on the associates part.  $50k to be a partner.  Do they honestly
 think I can afford either?  Guess who was partners? HughesNet, WildBlue,
 Bellsouth (ATT), Time Warner, Windstream, Insight... so when a customer in
 my area called them to see about access, even though I fully cooperated with
 CK, went to EVERY meeting, provided them with full mapping data and showed
 them how to use Radio Mobile, they referred them to HughesNet or WildBlue.
  They knew I had that area covered, it was very blatant, but because I
 didn't pay them the money, they referred them to an inferior product,
 satellite service.  They were provided with MILLIONS!!! to do mapping for
 Kentucky.  The maps they did were immediately removed and taken offline as
 soon as their funding ran out.  It was done in spite of the Kentucky
 Government.  The TAX PAYERS OWN THAT DATA, and they stole it from us all.
  Guess what happened another year later?  Another company was hired to do
 THAT EXACT SAME MAPPING again, and yes, they got MILLIONS again.

 I tried MULTIPLE times to work with them, and MANY MANY MANY open ended
 promised were made by them.

 None of this is opinion, it's all FACT.  Ask MANY MANY MANY people around
 the US that are under a Connect program.  Most will show their displeasure.

 I would agree with that it is a well known opinion by many on this
 list.  However, from what we've seen, they lobby as much, if not more, for
 independent companies like most of us are.  They lobby for Broadband in
 general - they don't play favorites at the high level.  However, they have
 some very knowledgible, dedicated wireless guys.  And if you work very much
 with them, you'd see that wireles is all those guys are about.

 It is well known that CN is a marketing and lobbying front for the
 Bells.  Bob's satire was harmless, reflective of their value to
 independent ISPs, wireless and otherwise.  If CN is whinging, let
 them, because it hit home.

 Bob's contributions have at times been a high point of this

Rick,



Actually, if you look at today's SpeedTest.net rankings (with the larger
server network) the US ranks 31st (http://www.speedtest.net/global.php#0).
 And according to the OECD, which uses advertised speeds, the US ranks 24th
(see
http://www.oecd.org/document/54/0,3746,en_2649_33703_38690102_1_1_1_1,00.html,
table 5a).



We welcome the FCCs project to collect data in a more randomized and
standardized way through their performance monitoring project with SamKnows
(http://www.testmyisp.com/faq.html).  We feel that our test and our report
over the past few years have helped point out the problems with buildout in
the US, particularly the rural-urban digital divide.

 Believe me, I understand speed tests, and sure, I do speed tests of 30+Mbps
 all the time. But that’s the point. The speedmaters.org website is
 proposing that the “The U.S. ranks 25th in the world in average Internet
 connection speeds.” Is this statement based upon these test servers?

 Hi Rick.



 I'm not sure what might be causing the lower reported speed in your case.
  We regularly have tests that come through as 100Mbps or more (mostly from
 research institutions).  Your distance from the testing server could be a
 factor.  We use the same technology as speedtest.net, but fewer servers
 due to cost constraints.  You might try their site to see if you get a
 different result.

Those are actually called rain caps for a reason. If you are prone to
snow, your better off with a exhaust pipe Thimble system such as this:

 Since the weather had turned nasty here in Texas, I thought I'd test out
 the Generator to ensure it would do it's job.  It fired up just fine, but
 one of the exhaust flaps that keep water out of the exhaust had frozen shut
 with a large clump of ice on top to boot (counter weight).  This would have
 eventually fouled the plugs on one side had I not checked.  Running for 5
 minutes did not clear it.

 Yet something else for us to look for.
