OpenWRT and OLSR or BATMAN on a Routerboard or Ubiquiti CPU platform may be ideal, but I need to learn more about OLSR and BATMAN in practice.  BATMAN seems to be a distance-vector algorithm, like, uh, DECNET 3 and 4 and IGRP, while OLSR is link state, like OSPF.  I am partial to link state.

The PtP/PtMP distinction does create interesting ambiguity.  But then My favorite ambiguity is whether the PtP/PtMP distinction applies to the full-duplex system or per traffic direction... one reading would say that an uplink(Customer - WISP) that is made using directive antennas can follow

Your best shot is back-hauling to a good capex x opex point as others pointed out, but if you find that doesn't work, consider using a mix of T1 bandwidth and one-way (better price and latency than two-way) satellite service, and policy-route traffic so some of it (usually web surfing, cache

One option to consider is a passive repeater. Wire a coax cable between the two dishes and you are done... no electronics to fail, no power to supply on a remote location. (haven't tested this trick with dual polarity, though) Rubens On Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 11:00 AM, Steve Barnes

Only good experience with them. The radios just work. Some were 11 GHz, some were 18 GHz, only one or two 7.5 GHz. Throughput matched the nominal 200/300/400 Mbps for small packets; for large packets, 170 out of 200 Mbps and 360 out of 400 Mbps; those values are consistent with IP-based (not

These are filters that I've designed for AirOS 3.x (Ubiquiti) but you can get the general idea which is to allow only unicast traffic and specific broadcast traffic, and then drop everything else. Rules are backward enumerated and the idea is to have the unicast traffic as the first match.

What UBNT has shown is that one can go inexpensive alternatives and make them good products. The equivalent in WiMAX is PureWave Networks; their base station can do MIMO and beamforming and doesn't require an ASN-GW, which was the higher CAPEX for a small 802.16e deployment until they came along.
