RE: [WISPA] Returns to Hyperlinktech.com is it possible?

2006-06-01 Thread Rudolph Worrell
Credits are always given when we are in the wrong or if we have a bug or so.  
As for refund we rarely do and if it comes to that we are the ones who initiate 
this.  The worst thing is to string a customer along even though you know that 
you cannot fix the issue.  I have found that it is better to say catch you next 
time or when it is fix than to have false expectation.


Quoting JohnnyO [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 Sure do - We credit ALL of our customers without them having to ask for
 any downtime over 12hours they experience on our system. If someone is
 not happy with our service and ask for a refund for their installation,
 we just give it to them, pick up our equipment and leave smiling.
 
 How about you Rudolph ? How do you treat your customer base ? None of
 our customers are due to advertisement, they are referrals by word of
 mouth. How stupid would it be to give someone a hard time over a few
 dollars when our business is driven by word of mouth advertising ?

Has anyone ever returned and item to Hyperlinktech.com

  2. People find something cheaper after the fact.
  3. Sales people may have already been paid commissions.

  full
  cost of the product sitting in inventory for a long time, while price
  drops
  by the time someone wants the product. Guaranteed to sell the product at
  a
  loss as well as tie up cash flow.
  5. People often irreputably return other vendor's products. Company 1
  has
  stock and can ship today. Company 2 has lower cost.  Company 1 product
  gets
  installed. Company 2 product when arrives gets sent back to company 1
  for
  refund. Buyer actually makes a profit on the deal, getting a higher
  dollar
  refunded than he paid for the gear from company 2. You'd be surprised
  how
  often this happened. Sometimes even involving invoice forging and
  swapping
  serial number stickers.
  6. The easy way to keep EVERYONE happy, is instead to just offer credits
  or
  replacements. It keeps everyone honest. If the buyer is really going to
  be a
  repeat customer, its just a matter of time before he has another order
  that
  he can apply the credit to.
 
  This is standard distribution policies. There are some exceptions. If
  the

  a

 As for the marketing bit, I have a 2.4Ghz wireless device that can

 there

 will
 
 
 get hurt. For instance, I have a unnamed mesh vendor quoting 14 nodes per
 square mile for 100% coverage in a decent sized community in MA. They'll
 need at least 40ish... And please keep in mind that different parts of
 the
 Country where tree lines/foliage, noise floors, and topology are
 different
 create their own separate challenges. Throw in voice as some of the
 wireless network experts have advised and a whole new overlay of
   
 
 problems
 
 
 surface.
 
 There is a place for mesh just like other tools in your kit but covering
 whole counties or even trying to cover a whole City is quite a stretch
   
 
 IMHO.
 
 
 How did we get to this point of mesh first being considered a
 convenience
 or hotspot extension to what it has become today where it is seen as the
 4th solution to the last mile or a cost effective roaming solution for
 public safety or city workers? 
 
 I have seen designs in the NE US where 40 to 69 2.4 Ghz nodes per square
 mile are needed when a simple implement of 900 Mhz mobility with two base
 stations (redundant) per square mile can do the trick and save 90% of the
 cost of a mesh network. Use mesh in the parks, at the pool, in the
 restaurant district, or anywhere else people may want public access. And
 I'll add that opening up my notebook on a sunny day outside is pretty
 much
   
 
 a
 
 
 waste of battery power. I'm afraid Tempe AZ and St Cloud are just the
   
 
 start
 
 
 of some of the bad press we're going to see related to our wireless
 industry. 
 
 But then again, I'm a show me guy so if one of these major networks
   
 
 actually
 
 
 works, has an ROI and doesn't become a boondoggle for tax payers, and
   
 
 serves
 
 
 the public well then I'll be impressed. Brad

John,

Thank you for the response.  I am  hoping that everyone including myself will 
pony up be a paid member.

My issue is simply not having the time.  Installer,CEO,support, tower engineer, 
and I am sure you know the rest.

I know we all work but is there anyone out there with some free time to give us 
all a call and make us pay.  That would work for me because then it is in my 
ear.

Furthermore can you direct us all to the mission of WISPA and what we are doing 
along with what we could possibly help with.  I think that involvement would 
bring in the bucks and to tell you the truth a face to face meeting once a year 
will not hurt.  We can all turn off the support calls and cross our fingers 
hoping nothing breaks while we are gone.

 I don't have the answers but we should now think of a few things that come
 to mind as we move forward.
 
 1.) Security to this list (my customers can join along with anyone else)
   
 
 Paid WISPA Principle Members have a members only list server called 
 [EMAIL PROTECTED] It is not open to anyone other than paid WISPA Principle 
 Members. We keep this wireless@wispa.org list open to the public to 
 attract new membership by allowing them to see what we are working on to 
 some degree. Issues we do not want exposed to outside world are 
 generally discussed in the [EMAIL PROTECTED] list server. So the long and 
 short of it is this, we plan to leave this list open for now and keep 
 the paid membership list for members only. 
 
 2.) Frequent meetings
   
 
 The board meets via IRC at least once a month. In person meetings are 
 not feasible with only 47 paid members. We do have some in person 
 meetings of members at the FCC headquarters when they meet to discuss 
 issues with FCC regarding our industry. I would like to see us do this 
 more. It takes money. I would like to have at least one nice formal 
 meeting a year with all members and we may do this at some point. It is 
 common for WISPA members to arrange to meet at shows and such. Until we 
 get more than 47 paid members it is unlikely WISPA will be hosting many 
 in person meeting events.
 
 3.) We need formality and a great deal of lobbying for WISP.
   
 
 Lobbying can be extremely expensive. The costs for what work we have 
 done at the FCC and Senate have largely been subsidized out of pocket by 
 members who want to help. We need more members in this organization. 
 Paid members that is. If you or anyone you know has not paid your dues 
 then fill out the form at http://signup.wispa.org and we will get you 
 invoiced for your dues and set you up in WISPA. Good post, Rudy.

2006-02-06 Thread Rudolph Worrell
This is a good thought to get something out of the deal.  I really think that 
we need access to utility easments.

Imagine putting an AP everywhere the cable and phone company aggregates thier 
fiber/wires etc.  Imagine being able to put an AP on or near a stop sign or 
anywhere you deem necessary to deliver your service.  This would greatly help 
our LOS problems and bandwidth issues.


Quoting John Scrivner [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 How about if we propose to the Congress that they allow a per base 
 station license to be paid annually for broadband use that gives first 
 in rights to those who launch broadband in a given geography in the 
 channel registered for each base station? Then everyone would have the 
 ability to have access to spectrum with some rights to prevent 
 interference and have something that investors could be comfortable with 
 investing in. This would eliminate the spectrum class split we have now 
 where some have rights of licensed use and others (like us) cannot play 
 in the game without using spectrum with no spectrum rights (unlicensed). 
 The government could have the revenues they demand which they normally 
 get from auctions which I oppose due to the inability for smaller 
 operators to have a chance to buy in.
 Just a thought.

Re: [WISPA] Good news and bad news today

2006-02-06 Thread Rudolph Worrell
Mac,

I am with you.  We need to be very aware but also plan and propose so that we 
are not spoken for in an ill way.

One thing that would really help here and on the paid side of things is to have 
clear goals, leadership, and direction.



Quoting Mac Dearman [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

   I say whoooa mule!
 
 I think before we jump the gun we ought to see what lies ahead of 
 us. If they plan on taxing the free spectrum it will have to be done at 
 the manufacturers level. There is no way to tax us per device and if we 
 are taxed per user  - - - then we will just pass that on to the end 
 user. Ultimately all taxes will have to be passed down to the end user - 
 it always has been - - -it always will be. I dont mind paying the taxes, 
 its all that damn collecting and book keeping I hate. It seems that 
 Uncle Sams money always get intermingled with mine and then I try to 
 find ways to keep it :-)
   
   From what I have read earlier today its not a done deal ad 
 its just talk at this time. We do need to keep our ears to the ground 
 and our eyes open though and if we can lead the horse rather than eat 
 dust from the Cavalry ahead of us would be a choice place to be.

  How about if we propose to the Congress that they allow a per base 
  station license to be paid annually for broadband use that gives first 
  in rights to those who launch broadband in a given geography in the 
  channel registered for each base station? Then everyone would have the 
  ability to have access to spectrum with some rights to prevent 
  interference and have something that investors could be comfortable 
  with investing in. This would eliminate the spectrum class split we 
  have now where some have rights of licensed use and others (like us) 
  cannot play in the game without using spectrum with no spectrum rights 
  (unlicensed). The government could have the revenues they demand which 
  they normally get from auctions which I oppose due to the inability 
  for smaller operators to have a chance to buy in.
  Just a thought.

Re: [WISPA] need WISPA to step up

2005-09-02 Thread Rudolph Worrell
I am not sure where you will be getting uplink service to get out to the world 
from New Orleans but here is a link to someone who may be able to help with 
that.

Quoting Matt Liotta [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 I think at this point there is the support needed to provide help for 
 the hurricane, but we need some organization. It seems to me this should 
 be a WISPA lead effort. I think someone from the board should lead the 
 effort or have the board designate a volunteer to lead the effort.
 
 We are ready to provide support ourselves. We can offer Tropos equipment 
 for instant Wi-Fi meshes as well as VoIP termination of phone calls.
