[WISPA] 900MHz band

2018-06-21 Thread Steve Barnes
We had an issue this week where we had a Power company have a 50K licensed band 
at 901.152 Mhz for power meter reading.  We have still a few older links that 
are 900MHz on Yagi's to individuals in deep woods.  I had to move channels all 
over the place as a 902-912MHz 10Mhz channel with UBNT does not have edge 
filters that don't pollute down to 901MHz.  So moving to the middle of the band 
cleaned up the noise on their license.

Now they are claiming that 10MHz channel width in the 900MHz ISM band is 
Illegal.  That the channel width is to be no larger than 8MHz. I have read all 
kinds of ISM docs from the FCC and I see no mention of max channel widths.  
They made mention of talking to the FCC if we didn't fix the issue.

Proof they are wrong any one?   This is a national company with a $10K Anritsu 
analyzer they hired in to find the noise.

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

2016-08-25 Thread Steve Barnes
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

Re: [WISPA] Meanwell DIn rail power supplies

2016-07-14 Thread Steve Barnes
Usually UPS have a voltage that they shut down the power and doesn't let the 
batteries go to 0Volts and collapse the batteries.

If you use a Netonix to power your stuff then you can set it to shut down at a 
voltage.

Can someone comment on what value there is in the UPS module, vs just using the 
charger and running the load off the batteries?

I can see value in the relay contacts for battery status, but if those are not 
being monitored, what else is that unit good for?  There is no LVD, no 
temperature compensation, no charge voltage regulation, and no real way to 
monitor the DC power supply (Is it even on) built into the unit.   There are 
more expensive units out there with much of this functionality.In our case 
we run without the UPS and monitor the power separately.  Maybe I'm missing 
something?

I've done a bit of work previously to reverse engineering the provisioning 
mechanism, and I see nothing that would be a problem collecting stats via that 
method. You'd still have to use groundcontrol to initially connect/provision 
the units first to exchange SSH keys, and you'd want it to be on a different ip 
that your previous aircontrol server.

A nasty thing about ubnt provisioning... if you replace the server on the same 
ip or a different ip, all of the radios that were previously provisioned will 
always try to connect to the old ip/server, which causes quite a bit of arp 
traffic.

 one thing I'd like to do is create a cleanup tool for that, though pssh 
(parallel ssh) + wireshark helped me clean up that mess manually in the past.

For those of you who haven't heard, several of us started a new

project yesterday.



https://github.com/esseph/groundcontrol



Licensing is tentatively set as falling under GPLv2.



We have already been offered code snippets, a dev box, a db server,

and several people have decided to volunteer time to make this happen.



The initial idea is that the system itself will be free, with a

possibly paid support/features option, or maybe a model similar to

observium where the is a community (free as in beer) version that

comes out every 6mo or so, and a paid version with newer features

and direct support. We're not sure yet, but we want to make this

project accessible and fairly vendor-neutral.



If any of you could volunteer time, support, code, documentation,

ideas, etc.it would be greatly appreciated. This is a project by and

for the WISP community. Thank you!

Subject: [WISPA] Quickbooks hosts

Does anyone have a good source to host Quickbooks?  I'm tired of hosting it 
myself and I would love to drop that Windows server like a bad habit.

I'm currently using Quickbooks Pro 2014 on a Windows terminal server.  I would 
like to be able to have 2 active concurrent users unless there's an additional 
recurring cost to this - in that case just 1 user is sufficient.

Re: [WISPA] AC Voltage Regulator??

2014-11-10 Thread Steve Barnes
Faisal do you use these.  I have tried them in the past and when they are 
working to handle enough clean power for a whole tower they seem to get really 
hot.

I also do not recommend running them off a poor generator to get cleaner power.

You can do a battery backup unit, like suggested by Sean H.

However to answer your question,  APC makes a whole line of Voltage Regulators, 
which are the product to fix this type of issue.

I was told by Matt Hardy that there should be a differnet config for each 
radio.  Pretty Simple reset one to factory make your default changes and save 
the config.

One of my techs have even gotten good at loading the factory defaults remotely 
and making enough changes to that config that he doesn’t even loose access.  I 
tell him whatever.  You are the dude that has to go climb and fix it if you 
screw it up.  So far only one has he bricked.

Re: [WISPA] Mimosa B5-160 v UBNT AF5-US Chart (working)

2014-08-06 Thread Steve Barnes
Matt, nausea can be fixed with realism. I have used nothing but 5GHz backhauls 
for 8 years. Only in the last 2 years have we gone to any 5 GHz Client other 
than business.  I have 15 towers and each has at least 2 paths in and out for 
redundancy.  So that is 35+ Links.  Most are 5 miles or more so not an AF24 
candidate in my rain zone.  I can't afford to just go out and buy $175,000 
worth of licensed backhauls.  But for the price of one Licensed link I can buy 
2.5- 5GHz links (AF5, Mimosa, or whoever)  saving me $100,000 when all is said 
and done.  

Would I prefer to do all licensed and save all the 5GHz for Customer?  Heck 
Yes!!  But that is not the reality I live in.

 I'm not sure this puts the Mimosa device in a positive spot light?
 
 H/V instead of cross-slant antennas.
 Pretty bad F/B compared to the airFiber.
 And latency is higher than an airFiber
 
 What's the amazing thing about this new device?

 I'm waiting back on UBNT to help further fill in the chart, and some

 TODO: For sure, add bandwidth / distance / modulation / signal / 
 channel width table

 Also, would like to hear Mimosa's PPS count, and see any results of 
 an
 RFC2544 test (which normally eats most wireless gear alive).

I'm right there with ya Matt.

Steve,
Do you have any competitors in your area? City/County/Government putting up 
5ghz?

Around here there are 7 (including us) using 5ghz in a WISP/Managed services 
capacity. Add on the city doing a 1-3 antennas on every major intersection in 
town for traffic light control plus some of their own inter building 
connections and it's VERY busy in the main part of town. It's driving us to 
licensed links to get the bandwidth out of our data center where we can use DFS 
to make short jumps to sub towers.
Last week a competitor (wispa member) fired up a 5ghz link and took down an 
entire tower for us until we moved to a DFS channel then eventually they turned 
it off and we moved back to our original channel.
Unfortunately because of the distance to this tower I can't use DFS legally and 
because of channel usage don't have a second link. (sucks)

 Would I prefer to do all licensed and save all the 5GHz for Customer?  Heck 
 Yes!!  But that is not the reality I live in.

 THanks Josh!
 I'm not sure this puts the Mimosa device in a positive spot light?

 H/V instead of cross-slant antennas.
 Pretty bad F/B compared to the airFiber.
 And latency is higher than an airFiber

 What's the amazing thing about this new device?

The future is going to be interesting for sure.

A few questions come to mind.
Is there a business model where WISP's can partner with a Google or Microsoft 
to help advance our offerings or would you be just selling your soul to Satan.
How do you compete against that level of investment if they start putting up 
hotspots to offload from the LTE networks in your area since that will most 
likely destroy 2.4 and 5.7-8 bands.

Subject: [WISPA] Rocket AP through put

Looking for some feed back concerning Rocket APs. We have quite a few of these 
in the field with UBNT Sectors and KPerformance Sectors.

What we run into is customer complaints about slow speeds at night when they 
call into after hours support. We come in the next day and run speed tests to 
the radios and they look ok.

Some APs have 20 subs and some as high as 50 subs.

Yesterday one of our employees ran speed tests from his home connected to one 
of those APs during the day and he got 15M. Then that evening he tried to watch 
Netflix - biggest complaint from most subs - and it would not start. He ran a 
speed test and got 500K. The AP he is connected to has 19 subs.

Trying to figure out just how many subs streaming on an AP will bring the 
through put down to 500K?

We are considering limiting how many streams can run on a given AP but need to 
figure where the breaking point is if that makes any sense.

Thanks for any insight any one can shed on this.

Timeclock is a NO NO.
You setting his schedule is a NO NO.

You hire them for a job.  He can bill you by the hour and you can agree on a

 The job he is to do is all he is to do not whatever you tell him to do.

Subject: [WISPA] remote employee

So, we finally got our former local tech set up at his office at his new home 3 
hours away. He has tunnel access into our net, access to billing and his VoIP 
phone tied to our switch to make and receive calls on our local lines, just 
like he did when he sat 10 feet from me. So next is to fine tune things.

We dumped him as a regular employee and moved to contract labor with no 
benefits, basically bumped him to a level where his pay per hour covered what 
he received via benefits, like insurance and vacation. Makes it easier for the 
accountant as she just cuts a check and doesn’t have to deduct taxes, however 
it now becomes his responsibility to claim wages and pay the taxes.

What we are working on now is management. My boss wants him to log everything 
he does and pay from there, but to me that seems to be a lot of work. We have a 
web based time clock, but I already have issues with techs forgetting to clock 
in or clock out, I cant imagine it would be better having a guy clock out after 
every single support call. Our phone system can log time on the phone and where 
the calls went to, but of course a guy can be busy updating firmware and 
re-configuring equipment without being on the phone.

The guy really only wants to clock 4 hours a day, but I need him available off 
an on during the day. He is unique and he could sit at home all day. I would 
almost just pay him 4 hours flat a day to sit and have him there and available, 
but the bosses want to pay him for only what he works, which I think puts more 
load on us deciphering logs to see what he actually worked.

Subject: [WISPA] Tower Seminars?

Long time subscriber, first time poster.

My name is Isaac Wilder. I'm one of the cofounders of the Free Network 
Foundation, an NGO that supports user-owned telecommunications systems.

I'm writing to ask if any of you have recommendations for seminars/cert 
programs for tower engineering (calculating loads, ballasts, guy tension, 
assembly, grounding, testing). I am in the Kansas City area, but could travel 
for the seminar. Something that ended with a cert would be a plus, but the key 
thing is the know-how.

Also interested in climbing/rigging programs.

If I could get both in one place, that would be great, but it's not a 
requirement.
We're a small org, and operate on a shoestring, so price is a factor, but 
obviously safety/quality comes first.

Looking for reccomendations, but would also like to know if there are folks to 
avoid.
Any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated.


with gratitude,

Re: [WISPA] ATT MIS Throughput

2014-02-24 Thread Steve Barnes
How is your CPU on your router?  65 mbps sounds low for sure.  If you are on a 
100 Mbps circuit have you ever plugged a PC in directly and made sure you are 
getting the speed. With 100 M setup 92 is about the Max but you have a long way 
to get to there.   What type of router?

Things to look at:
Router CPU Load (while running test)
Queues setup wrong
Poor cable between upstream and router.
Wrong Handshaking from upstream.

Have you tried the Shireen dry gel?  I’m addicted.

Stays dry and easy to work with until it gets wet.  IF there’s a problem that 
allows liquid into the cable it self seals the hole.  Pretty cool stuff.

I do wish they had a better packaging system.  I really miss the “rabbit pull”

Scott does not have the same issues due to using Mikrotik in mostly metal

I have attached a link for an antenna we commonly use on our Canopy PMP100 2.4 
Omnis. I have an issue with an AP where everyone has decent signal but 
throughput is suffering (decent down capacity, crappy up capacity). Usually I 
have never had ice on these antennas. I did however use to have an icing issue 
on a smoother 5.7 AP 4 winters ago where I de-iced a few times a day, maybe a 
total of 20 times that season, on the same tower. This antenna has a rough 
texture, but I have never, that I know of, had an ice issue on it before. I 
have a guy trying to determine from the ground if he can detect ice, but it’s a 
175 foot climb. It’s a better day than today to climb for sure

anyways, just curious if others who may use this antenna has had the issue

depending on SNR but most have a 2MB or less service.  They both work.  But 
these are very Rural and when the RTK farming system is active for Planting or 
Harvesting then it gets a little dicey.  But they have no other option when 
they call and complain during those times I explain that it is noise I have no 
control over, Sorry.

[my opinion]
Putting multiple 900Mhz Radios on a single tower is IMPOSIBLE without GPS sync. 
 The Noise from one to the other, even from bounces off of buildings 1 mile 
away makes the noise too high for the sector.  I mean come on you only have 
25MHz to play in and in today's world to offer the speeds you need to on 900 
you need to use 20 MHz.  Even if you use 10Mhz and use the top and bottom you 
only have 5MHz Separation and on the same tower unless you are on opposite 
sides of a solid steel water tower, you will have enough bleed over that your 
receive sensitivity will be shot.

But Mike that is the Rub. All things are never the same.  900 is dirty and 
Susceptible to so much noise and reflection because the signal does not die as 
quick.  I understand the “Theory” but still have a hard time understanding how 
a slower carrier wave (900MHz) can carry the same Data as 5800MHz carrier wave 
but I know that it could in a vacuum. The issue is we don’t live in a vacuum.

There's really only two models of CPEs in the 3.65 world... the NanoStation and 
the NanoBridge.  The NanoStation will be good for about a mile clear line of 
site.  The NanoBridge will be good a few miles out, and perhaps closer with a 
small obstruction (bush, single tree, etc).

3GHz requires nearly clear line of site to operate properly.

You must register your 3GHz with the FCC and pay the $200 license fee.

You must coordinate with grandfathered earth stations if there are any near you.

On tower at LocationA there are two Airfiber pointing at the same direction 
LocationB and LocationC, more or less.
On the tower at LocationA, the two airfibers are mounted at let's say
1-2 meters distance (horizontal and vertical) and 10 degrees of difference in 
the 2 directions LocationB and LocationC.
LocationB and LocationC are two other towers both pointing at LocationA.

I am wondering if at 24Ghz I could see some interference or not , in this 
situaitons

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti ERLite-3 3-port Router

2013-01-08 Thread Steve Barnes
That's the new UBNT Edge Router line.  I was not aware that they have actually 
shipped to general public yet.

UBNT is trying to get into the Router market as well.  Time will tell.

Re: [WISPA] Are Ubiquiti cables failing???

2012-11-02 Thread Steve Barnes
I had my fist 3 cable failures this week.  Blown radios and POE's.  I know that 
I don't get any credit for labor but I also don't want any new cable that will 
fail in a year.  I think I will just have them replace the radios and go one 
with Life.  Not sure how I would ever get rid of 10 boxes of new UBNT cable.  I 
would put it out.

Yes. As stated the green stuff is crap. Ive got boxes of radios with dead 
ethernet ports. Forget new cable, I want my radios fixed! We used the cable in 
short runs 15ft, and are finding more and more places it was used as those 
sites fail.

 Hi All,

 it seems that lately the Ubiquiti cables that we installed some time

 It happened with one cable on one site, then another cable on the same

 Any comment?

Hey Fred,  we did exactly that with our Hardee County Network, we use licensed 
links between MEF switches.  Rapid deployment with fiber forward design.

I think we have been through all configurations,  bridging, routing and layer2 
switching.  You could not hit the nail on the head any better here.

The advantages of this type of design include scaleability, performance and 
reduced opex.

There could be one NAT, at the access point.

My taste, which to be sure I haven't tested at scale in a wireless network (but 
plan to), is to follow what is becoming standard wireline practice and do 
switching, not bridging, at layer 2.  Routing would then be lumped into one 
place, making it easier to manage.

The problem with small Linux-based systems (this includes both UBNT and MT) is 
that they don't tend to have switching documented or set up in the UI, even if 
it's possible.  Bridging is bad -- it was designed for orange hose Ethernet, 
and it passes broadcast traffic to everyone.  We invented this at DEC in the 
1980s and discovered how it doesn't scale too well -- we had a couple of 
thousand DECnet and IP nodes on a bridged LAN, and the background broadcast 
traffic level was 400 kbps.  This was a lot for systems to handle in 1991.  I 
was testing ISDN bridges and discovered how you can't just bridge that type 
of network across a 56k connection.  (I discovered the traffic when I first 
turned up the bridge.  I ended up isolating it behind a router, built from an 
old VAX.  At DEC, we built everything ouf of VAXen.)

Switching, though, is what Frame Relay and ATM do, and now Carrier Ethernet is 
the big thing for fiber.  It uses the VLAN tag to identify the virtual circuit; 
the MAC addresses are just passed along.  Since it's connection-oriented (via 
the tag), it can have QoS assigned.  I think it's theoretically possible to tag 
user ports, route on tags and set QoS on RouterOS, but it's not obvious how to 
do it all.  Switching doesn't pass broadcast traffic; it provides more 
isolation and privacy than plain routing.  Mesh routing then works at that 
layer, transparent to IP.  It'll be interesting to set up.

doing VPN's and every form of video and music and have never had one problem.

Pro's:
Customer can plug PC right into POE or switch and don't need a Router.
No worry if customer plugs router in backward of getting their DHCP on our AP
Customer has another level of security (yes its poor)

No you cannot force something on their normal screen.  But what Josh was 
stating was you can setup a Redirection so that any client that opens a browser 
and tries to go to a website will be redirected to a site of your choice.  Now 
that works good but that is all they would get.  Like Chris stated if you have 
a Mikrotik in the line you can enable the hotspot so that they would get a 
splash page for until the hit a continue button.  Neither are a very good 
option.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] UBNT APs: can they do UAM + DHCP on one fat AP?

Thanks, Sam.  That is helpful.

FWIW, I'm currently researching the following things on UBNT...

1) How exactly is UAM done on all Ubiquiti radios?  Specifically, can an AP do 
the following...

a) white lists an offsite portal page (e.g. NNU or Aptilo)
b) redirects unauthorized users to this portal page?
c) after client pays on portal page, tell the AP UAM webserver on Ubiquiti 
radio to authenticate the user
d) pre-authenticate user MAC addresses that roam from other APs?

2) If a Ubiquiti device already services an SSID, how can it also serve a 
separate SSID that (a) does it's own UAM, and (b) does its own DHCP scope?  Can 
I do this existing hardware?  Or do I need to get a new radio for each new 
service?

Ideally, I'd like to stack services on existing UBNT networks, as well as 
roll out new ones...hence the reason I'm hoping for some sort of simple UAM 
overlay.

 This sounds pretty much like UniFi.  The UniFi units do not handle the 
 DHCP so you would need something handing out leases like a small Mikrotik box.
 You then add all the UniFi units that you want to be 'seamless' to the 
 same network in the unifi controller.  The unifi controller can be run 
 anywhere that is reachable from the UniFi units (the UniFi's do not 
 have to be reachable from the controller though, so then can be behind a NAT).

 (Apologies if my questions are a bit naive, I'm still getting used to 
 how Ubiquiti does things. I've always done things the traditional way 
 in carrier networks, i.e. tunneling everything back to the core and 
 then breaking out traffic accordingly).

 I have some questions about Ubiquiti's ability to integrate with UAM.

 I have a scenario where I will have approximately 1000-2000 APs 
 scattered across different extremely rural areas with limited backhaul 
 space. These areas will likely NOT have the expertise to properly 
 babysit a core solution.

 In a past life, I've often just put in an access point with some sort 
 of DHCP solution and UAM redirect. This AP plugged directly into the 
 modem (DSL, cable, etc) and then got a public CPE address which I 
 could manage remotely. When customers hit the open SSID, they got a 
 spash page that was served by NetNearU (NetNearU.com), and when they 
 authenticated, their MAC was whitelisted on for the duration of time. 
 When they went to another AP that had a different DHCP server, their 
 MAC address was pre-authenticated and they appeared (from their perspective 
 to roam).

 A few questions on how I can do this The Ubiquiti Way.

 1) Does Ubiquiti do DHCP at the edge on each AP? If not, is there some 
 3rd party software I can use? I understand if this is not supported 
 and if I have to figure this out myself. That is not a problem.

 2) Does Ubiquiti have a way of vectoring the users off to this 
 database? I see that Chili has a plugin, and it looks relatively simple to 
 integrate.
 Does this still work with the current OS? Or have things changed?

 http://coova.org/node/3685

 3) Can someone recommend a hosted user database solution that is cheap 
 and reliable? If I had to roll it myself, what would you recommend?

 4) Do I have to use UniFi? Can I just script out some sort of login 
 script to quickly deploy and configure these thigns?

 This project (if it takes off) could be about 1000-2000 thousand APs 
 scattered across rural Africa and South America. I'm hoping for 
 limited equipment at the edge (things like battery backups and 
 customized antennas may be needed in some cases, but I'm hoping for limited 
 network equipment).

 If anyone has any ideas or would like for me to connect them with the 
 various decision makers, please feel free to contact me offline. I'm 
 not looking to make anything off this project, just donate a little 
 time in helping it get off the ground by asking the right questions.

Subject: [WISPA] NanoStation M w/ Reflector Installs



We have decided to standardize on the NanoStationM2 for all our 2.4Ghz

installs.  At this time, the installers use the lights on the radio for

alignment.  When using a reflector, they are complaining that they can't

see the lights on the radio to align it.  Besides allowing them to login

to the radio to check signal, what are you guys doing to properly align

the NSM radios when using a reflector?  Is it as difficult as my

installers are making it out to be?

Re: [WISPA] Omni antenna for a rocket M900

2012-03-16 Thread Steve Barnes
Blair, how is this setup working?  Is this a real Option for future 
deployments?  I have a grain Leg that would be perfect 25 homes within a 2 mile 
radius, however, light to moderate woods at 1 Mile almost 100% around the Gran 
leg.  Backhaul not a problem from top but without 900 I cant get 1 mile and

CCQ.  Throw a OLD Tranzeo CPG-19 at the site and get a solid 48 MB 90% CCQ.  I 
have seen this on this sector mostly and it was all replaced in DEC due to ICE

Sorry Guys I see you point and you would be right.  However, Our Installer was 
using a AirGrid not a Nanostation M2.  Airgrid actually gave better signal 
strength -65 as compared to the Tranzeo  -71 but the Tranzeo had much better 
Connection rate.  Last month had another customer complain off same AP that her 
speeds were terrible.  Got looking and same issue AP RX rate was 3.3.  Went out 
replaced a NSM2 with a standard NS2 connection rates went from 3.3 to 48/2 
(10Mhz Channel)  Install just told me he has had 3 more like that and wants to 
change the sector.

If they are gray that means they are not connected. You can Sort By status.  
Highlight the disconnected ones, right click and hit connect/disconnect.  Enter 
the user and password and wait.  (of course this works if you have them all 
with the same user and pass) if not you will have to connect one at a time.

If the status light is orange then they are just off-line.

[WISPA] Horizontal or Vertical

2011-12-14 Thread Steve Barnes
I have a company that is going to deploy a WiFi Hotspot underneath a tower that 
I already have 4 UBNT M2 Sectors on.  The reason for the Deploy is they need to 
use hand barcode scanners over their whole Lot.  Luckily they plan to work with 
me on this situation and coordinate frequencies.  I have a stock of old Omni's 
that I have taken down, half are Horizontal and Half are vertical polarity.  
Since my AP's are dual pol that does not matter.  There however is generally 
less noise on Horizontal.  The hand held barcode readers give no spec as to how 
the internal antenna is oriented.  What would others recommendation.  I am 
using as high gain antenna as possible then turning down the transmit so the 
receive will be good both ways.  This will be covering about 4 acres.

Re-reading your posts brings me to another question.has any VOIP
carriers ever used cellular carriers numbers? Is it even possible?

 First, wrt the Livingston exchange, 931-397 and 931-403 belong to US
 Cellular; the latter is pooled (they're using the 7's).  Nextel has
 -871, pooled (using 6 and 7).  Oddly, US Cellular but not S-N says it
 subtends a Gaineborough tandem, which is Twin Lakes, but most Twin
 Lakes exchanges subtend Nashville.

 As to VoIP via cellular numbers, well, its sort of odd, but it might
 be possible.  The new rules may actually say something about this -- 
 there was a VoIP company affiliated with a wireless company that was,
 uh, alleged to have been laundering its LD calls via the cellular
 company in order to get the lower termination rates.  They deny it of
 course... but that may have been addressed in the intercarrier
 rules.  I haven't gotten through it all yet. (It's freakin' huge.)  I
 actually had a client that was a wireless company whose business
 included lots and lots of modems, way back when, so it's not
 unprecedented to have, uh, incidental non-wireless traffic go
 through a wirless feed.  And heck, put up one 3.65 GHz base station
 (if it's allowed there) and declare it CMRS, and you're a cellco too!

 There's one lawyer I know who sort of specializes in this sort of thing.

  I like to think of that as a challenge. ;-)  The good news is that
  they use the Nashville tandem, not their own, so the traffic exchange
  can be indirect.
 
  But it's true that there are no CLECs with numbers in TLTC's
  area.  Powertel, US Cellular, VZW and Sprint Nextel are the only
  other carriers there, all mobile.  No Celina numbers, either, if it
  matters. But Livingston has pooled prefix codes available.

Will bonding interfaces of 2 Rocket M5 Dish units result in full duplex 
transmission?  We are needing to increase the backhaul throughput of one of our 
links.  The obvious answer is to convert to a licensed full duplex unit  (which 
we plan to do) but in the meantime to get by will bonding interfaces fix our 
issue?  We are getting about 45-50 mbps duplex mode on a single unit (using the 
built in speed test), if we bond two we are assuming that we will see 
90-100mbps and hopefully full duplex instead of half.

have one residential sub  who month after month uses more bandwidth than the 
next 3-4 residential subs combined.  Last month, they used over 105GB.  Is this 
excessive?  The next top residential sub in the same month consumed 37GB (which

With Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc, this may be the new normal . . .

[WISPA] Porting Number to VoIP

2011-11-09 Thread Steve Barnes
I live in an area in Eastern Indiana that used to be Verizon and now is 
Frontier.  I have gone to a VoIP system at my office and love it.  I got an ATA 
to setup my home, got the temp number and started the port process and My home 
exchange cannot be ported by my provider. It is different than the office 
exchange. They are checking with Level3 to see if there is anything more that 
can be done. I want to start offering VoIP to that exchange but if I can’t get 
the port to go I will have very few takers.

What is my next step.  What should it do before I file a complaint with the FCC?

The FCC has nothing to do with it.  The number isn't the problem, the 
origination carrier.  That's like complaining to the FCC that you
(Steve) don't offer service in Canada.  If you didn't try Level3 before who did 
you try?

We had 20 or 30 origination carriers before we could port 99-100% of numbers.  
1 or 2 big ones cover 95% of numbers.

Hi Steve,

Here is a nice thread with a lot of good info related to LNP. 

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r24697102-Rural-number-porting-
situation-is-geographic-LNP-live-

To get around this you will need to find a Carrier that is somehow connected to 
that exchange or has a switch in that lata to be able to port that number.

While it is more convenient for your VOIP provider to blame Frontier, the real 
issue is that your VOIP provider either directly or indirectly does not have 
any (interconnect) services in your local exchange area.

Faisal.

I would say do a double run on 120*.  Maybe 90* in 5.8 but the spectrum isn't 
there in 2.4 or 3.65 for 90* or 60* yet without AirSync.

I definitely want 120*.  Beyond that, assuming we're talking about 2.4, then 
60* isn't doable.  There just isn't the spectrum and without GPS it isn't going 
to work.  90* is going to be tough but could probably work with vertical

[WISPA] Website owner

2011-11-02 Thread Steve Barnes
I know this is not a WISP issue per se. In our local area there was a network 
admin for a large company who on the side setup about a hundred websites for 
local small business and individuals.  Last month he took his wife's life and 
then killed himself.   No other family left and no one to handle his affairs.  
His Clients are coming to me and asking how do I get control of my website.  
They had no agreements and no proof of ownership other than the dead mans 
handshake.  

What steps can be taken to recover these sites?  
What is the best way to research and find where they are hosted, not just the 
registrar?

Re: [WISPA] Verizon wants a piece of our pie

2011-10-27 Thread Steve Barnes
In Indiana they have been selling everything they can unload.  Most of the East 
Side of Indiana was Verizon now Frontier.  In Fort Wayne 2 year ago the dumbed 
a bunch in FIOS and sold it less than a year later.

I believe that with the FCC decision today Verizon sees its future as 100% 
wireless.  I expect to see them offload even more of their planted 
infrastructure in light of a wireless one.

 I think you should rephrase your statement - Cellular networks 
 (especially in metropolitan areas) WERE built for coverage.  With 4G 
 services, they are built for capacity.  I doubt the coverage metric 
 will change in rural areas though.

 There is also a major question on backhaul.  Microwave backhaul may 
 be equal for 2G/3G networks, but as 4G proliferates it will have a 
 higher dependency on Fiber or 60GHz/80GHz short range high capacity 
 backhaul.  Most rural sites will only support 11GHz/6GHz for backhaul and 
 therefore lower found
 capacity they could deliver via fixed wireless.

 On the other hand, WISP's can be nimble to all of these demands, at a 
 much lower equipment cost.

 FTTH of course is a different metric altogether.  Verizon wireline 
 loves to plow fiber now.

 Anyways, my 2 cents.  I could certainly be wrong :-)

 I have a dissenting opinion...

 It all comes down to a simple economics in the end.  Who can most 
 cost effectively provide broadband.
 A cellular network is built for coverage

 Additionally, large companies, from a scale and operations 
 perspective, will tend to put the same equipment everywhere

 What that means is in order to offer the nationwide network, that the 
 tower in the rural area that's required to cover that stretch of 
 highway where there's only a town of 1,000 people will have the same 
 equipment and capacity as the tower in downtown Chicago that has 
 1,000 simultaneous users

 So in rural areas, where the costs of the tower, backhaul and base 
 station have already been amortized and paid for to fulfill their 
 coverage requirements, but many of these towers are sitting at 5-10% 
 capacity

 In their mind, to add another 100 or so fixed wireless users off an 
 AP and putting them in a lower QoS bucket (so the primary mobile 
 customers aren't affected when fixed customers start slamming 
 Netflix) is found money -- self installs are quite nice when 
 putting out +60 dBi EIRP at the tower with
 700 MHz on licensed spectrum with zero noise floor

 At the end of the day when a WISP puts up a 'cell' site it is 
 probably costing them 1/100th of what it costs the cellco to do so.  
 The equipment used is most likely 1/100th the cost at the 'AP' and 
 1/10th at the CPE and the spectrum that the cellco uses is not free.

 Even when you take into account that the cellco operates on a much 
 longer ROI and they can get some economy of scale on certain things I 
 don't see how they can overcome the price difference to be able to 
 effectively compete against a WISP, especially given their lack of 
 spectrum.  Sure you get a much better noise floor, but they have 
 fewer channels to deal with.  And from a cost perspective it is a lot 
 harder to justify putting up micropops as a cellco.  I know plenty of 
 WISPs that can afford to put a micro-pop up for 3 customers.  I do 
 see how a cellco could afford to do that for eveny 20 times that number.

 Deep pockets only last so long when you are losing money.

This sounds like an odd thing to try but have you tried switching which end is

Also with some help of Justin Wilson we have found that there is more stability

 You probably either have 1) noisy channels, 2) incorrect ACK 
 distances, 3) not optimal firmware version, 4) Or some third
party 
 factor effecting testing, such as testing devices that cant
generate 
 that much traffic or buffer sizes of routers.

 The first thing to try is switch down to 20mhz channel and
see if the 
 speed tests stays the same or higher, or if it drops
proportionally. I 
 bet the 20Mhz channel will perform better.

 Dont rely on CCQ on its own. Its one indicator, but does not
mean you 
 have a clean channel for sure.  Also remember, the Eth port
is limited 
 to 100mb, and if there is cable quality issues such as due to 
 distance, it could autoadjust to half duplex. Test laptop to
PC, 
 isolating RF path, just for grins.  It is very rare to find
40Mhz of 
 clean spectrum for Dual polarity, and even the slightest
packet loss 
 and delay can drastically reduce TCP throughput.

That might work, but again this evening the CPEs won't stay up long enough to

I did climb up to the antenna on the worst offender from last night. It

October is a pain for 900 around here.  My theory is the color in the leaves is 
from the metals that get left behind.  Thus we have a bunch or mirrors making 
all sorts of goofy signal patterns.  It is probably worse in the late

 In the worst conditions, a MT CPE with default configuration will 
 retransmit the same frame 200-300 times per second at the lowest rate, 
 consuming all available bandwidth.  I've observed this in the field 
 and on the bench.  Getting stats from the AP/CPE to easily show when 
 this is happening has proven quite difficult.  I had to use a third 
 station to do a TZSP sniff and analyze the data in wireshark in order to 
 observe it.

 Setting frame-lifetime=1 (1 centi-second/10milliseconds), will drop 
 that number to 20-30 frames per second.  It sets a hard limit to how 
 long the AP or CPE will spend retransmitting the same frame.  So to 
 answer your second question, you can try setting frame-lifetime=1 on all the 
 CPEs.
 It shouldn't make a difference on good CPEs, but it will likely make 
 the bad CPEs worse, bringing them to light.
