Re: [WISPA] SAF vs Trango

2012-11-02 Thread Travis Johnson
We have installed over 40 of the Trango links (in our network and for 
other companies). We install long links (some 18ghz links as far as 32 
miles), so the higher power output and better receive is a big plus for us.

Feature key is NOT required on Trango for more power. All the radios are 
at full power regardless of the license key.

Re: [WISPA] SAF vs Trango

2012-11-02 Thread Travis Johnson
When I have priced them before, SAF was the same price as Trango with 
their standard power... but when you increase to High Power then it's 
more expensive.

And SAF's 5 year warranty is very cool... the bigger question with this 
type of radio is how quickly can they repair/replace the unit? I just 
had water get into a Trango radio (due to improper installation), and I 
did a complete RMA process with Trango and had the radio back, fixed, in 
one week. That's from the day I submitted the request until I had the 
repaired radio back. :)

HI,

I have spoken to several other WISP's and when they actually compare the 
SAME radio from SAF to Trango (same power, same license keys, same 
dishes, etc.) then Trango is 99% of the time less expensive. Yes, it 
only has a 2 year warranty compared to 5 years, but that's the only 
difference.

And Trango is made in the USA, if that matters to anyone. :)

 Travis, I think your experience with Trango isn't shared by other
 WISPs.  Because of your relationship with them, they support you more
 than the average customer.  You get better pricing and support than
 the rest of us do.  A WISP just south of us has a similar relationship
 with Trango.  When we chat, he's say, Oh, I just ordered a new radio
 from Trango for $X.  When I call the next day, my price is much
 higher than what he paid.

 At least with other manufactures, I can call different vendors to get pricing.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti next product.... another router?

2012-09-14 Thread Travis Johnson
Sorry... I don't agree that Ubiquiti is in the same category as Cisco or 
Motorola. I have Cisco switches and routers with 5+ YEARS of uptime. My 
main Cisco switch is moving over 1500Mbps of graphic daily and has been 
up for over 2+ years.

We have had many Ubiquiti radios that if they have more than 100 days 
uptime, you have to reboot them BEFORE doing a firmware upgrade or else 
when they come back they won't pass traffic (even though they are 
connected via wireless).

 It's going to have to be really good to make people switch.

 Maybe they're going for a niche market of people who want only features
 relevant to the WISP market (bandwidth management, bandwidth accounting

From my perspective the value or a core/edge router is not only in the
  number of packets, it's more into the number of bugs and instabilities.

  A new product has less or more bugs/instabilities than others working

  I am not sure that I want to restart thinking new workarounds for a new

Re: [WISPA] Questions for those that have bought/sold WISPs

2012-09-03 Thread Travis Johnson
There is no set formula. This is a negotiation process you will have to 
deal with your other partners about. They can't force you out, and you 
can't demand a certain amount.


You would ask for a number (start high), and they will counter with a 
number (low), and you go back and forth until you both reach a number 
everyone is happy with. Think of it as buying/selling a house... your 
shares are worth what they are willing to pay for them.

etc. The thing I see the most is selling for 1x, 1.5x, or 2x gross 
annual receipts, unless it is a failing company, in which case the 
number is dramatically lower.


The only real difference for me is that I own less shares than the 
other partner. Has anyone bought/sold minority shares of a WISP, and 
is there anything different about valuing that? I'm looking at selling 
back my shares and want to make sure they're getting valued correctly.


I have proposed 12-months gross receipts * my percentage. They are 
pushing for net revenue or gross profit - which are both net of 
expenses or net of cost of sales. I've never seen a net number used 
before - my dad sold his aerospace company about 15 years ago and used 
12-months gross receipts + cash on hand for his sale number. In 
addition to this number, there are enterprise customer contracts that 
have been signed but have not been fully deployed yet, and therefore 
are not reflected on the books - it seems like these should be added 
to the value as well.


On top of that, I am a co-signer on a line of credit for the company, 
how should that be handled? Has anyone dealt with that?


Thanks in advance for any input or advice you guys can provide.

They require at least 2Gbps of Netflix traffic across your network at 
all time and require you connect the box to a 10Gbps port to our 
network. I really doubt there are many WISP's out there running this 
much Netflix traffic at one time. A few but nowhere near the majority. 
Also, for many of us, this probably isn't the problem of running out 
of internet transit but rather having AP's at capacity for which this 
would not solve at all.

 After receiving the IP allocation, we added it to our BGP configs, and
 contacted ATT and Windstream to have the block advertised out to the
 Internet. ATT got it dealt with within a few days and traffic to
 those IPs started flowing in. Windstream we have been fighting with

 It's costing us thousands of dollars per month, since we can't do away
 with the ATT circuit until Windstream bring traffic in via their

 Windstream say they are awaiting on ATT in order to be able to

 What does ATT have to do with weather I can advertise an IP block via

$139/night? The standard cabins were $279 for all 4 nights.

 I decided not to go since I just got back from Vegas...too many things
 going on to leave another week...not because of their response.

This is my 3rd time on this cruise... I go to get away from it all, and 
have something in common with people on board... it's not the ideal 
cruise for me (the plane tickets cost more than the entire cruise)... 
but I enjoy going and hanging out with people that I already know.


And it forces me to disconnect for 4 days, which I need once a year. :)

You know, if I were in their shoes, I would do what is required to 
keep a happy customer.


Next year I plan to go to the WISPA conference and skip this thing. I

eRate is used if you are selling services to the school (like internet 
access, or even just transport between their own schools, etc.).

Who knows eRate on this list?  We have an opportunity to rent fiber to

Also, what I have read, if the school incurs income because of it, 
don't they have to reduce their e-rate funding by the same amount?

There are other considerations besides cost.  It's important to
consider total cost of ownership. What devices cost you the least to
put up?  How does that square up with longevity?  What causes the
fewest repeat truck rolls and gives the greatest customer experience?
How does it scale across a large network?

Short of the 6500 with a sup 720-3bxl, not much.  The 7600 is really 
where you need to be if you want full tables on a chassis platform 
though, as cisco removed quite a bit of routing features from the 6500 
code line.


Keep in mind, they will do 512k of routes in the FIB, but that's IPv4 
only.  So if you have MPLS, v6 and other stuff running, expect that 
number to be much lower.   Per the latest cidr report, the routing 
table is 369k now.


Have you considered other vendors?  ALU and juniper have some great 
mid size routers with excellent BGP/routing support.

Ever radio we have sent back for RMA we have gotten a replacement (brand

When you do the license, you get two 40mhz channels.

The frequency coordinator will take care of all that, once you apply for

You coordinate two paths.  We have a Trango GigaLINK 6GHz link using

Frequency diversity for higher overall availability.

 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 connection in 10Mb full duplex and you will discover the story is
 totally different ;)

 Also, yes it's interesting to see what is happening on the network
 interface when the test is running...

 Do a real test and report back, like FTP. Ookla  Speedtest.net test are
 bogus 99.9% percent of the time because it's based on screwy test
 algorithms.

Re: [WISPA] Indoor N Mikrotik Router

Hi,

Do they require a CAT5 run to each AP, or are they repeaters as well?

Are there any companies making an indoor Wireless N solution based 
upon Mikrotik?  I have a need for some indoor N series routers. Have 
been deploying the Netgear N300, but need an AP which supports POE for 
a few places.  I would like to buy something pre-built if possible 
that is pleasing to be in an indoor environment.

Re: [WISPA] non-802.3 rackmount poe switch

(6)  1U shallow depth form factor.

Hi,

Has anyone ever used a Cisco 3GE-GBIC-SC line card in a 12000 series 
router and a WS-G5483 GBIC module (copper)? The data sheet on the line 
card says it requires a fiber GBIC module, yet the single GE line card 
will use a copper GBIC without an issue.

As long as NB is following part15 rules and not maliciously trying to

NB's network, just as NB has to accept interference from OB's network.


It seems that NB has tried to get along, it is about time OB started

Sound like new boy is the problem regardless of how old boy's network

spectrum analysis was done in advance or new boy would have seen it 
was a no go. New boy needs to look at using a different band or buy 
out old boy.


I would HIGHLY recommend new boy bail on 2.4, and use 5.8 UBNT Rockets 
with Sectors. He will be able to provide a higher class of service and 
be installing what he should have installed in the first place. New 
boy should include in the tower agreement language for exclusivity on 
3.65, 5.2, 5.4, and whatever unused channels there are on 5.8.

Robert,
Still missing some relevent detail...
New WISP uses 2.4 sectors.
Is the Old WISP boy also using 2.4G sectors?
As well, is the Rocket gear Single Pol or MIMO dual pol gear?
Expecially, is the new provider's 5.8G PTP and Rocket Sectors MIMO?
Legally- Part15 means everyone must deploy assuming the risk that
there could be interference. There are two potential outcomes. 1)
Coordination and cooperation or 2) survival of the fittest. This
might also come down to who has the best contract with the grain
towers. Whether anyone gained solid non-interference clauses or
spectrum exclusivity clauses in their contracts, versus hand shake
deals.
I dont agree with the assessment that the problem is the Old Boy's
bad design or unwillingness to change. (see below for justification)
The fact is, he was there first and had the flexibility to design
optimally for his need, and there was really no need for him to
design for the new providers need, becaue the new provider did not
exist at that time.  At the end oif the day, he has pre-existing
custoemrs that need him and that he needs revenue from, and he
isn;t going to bail on that pre-existing money tree, that has been
in motion for years. He will fight harder than the new provider
because, he has more at stake to protect, even though it may be on
a smaller scale.
Both parties are equally obligated to build their networks as
interference resilent as possible. But there are multiple
dissimilar approaches to accomplishing that that is jsut as good
as another. So who's to say what is ultimately the best practice. 
Its tough for a company who has built a network on a single pol

and 20Mhz design, and change to a dual pol 10Mhz design.
Whats less efficient? Dual Omnis each single pol, or two sectors
with dual pol?  Omnis are not always bad, IF there is adequate
physical obstruction isolation between grain towers, and using
polarity as a mechanism of interference isolation also helps. If
some else is operating on 20Mhz, a new provider on 10Mhz may not
help, because it still steps on half the 20Mhz channel.
I'd argue that the best way to coexist is to get rid of the Dual
Pol on the New provider's Mimo rockets, IF THEY are using Dual POl
MIMO. If Old BOy is using Omnis everywhere he likely is using
Verticle pol everywhere. So, New WISP should physically CAP the
verticle pol on their Rocket radios, and leave Chain Zero on
Horizontal polarity only. Then move new WISP back to 20Mhz if you
need to to regain the capacity.  Problem solved. But if you rely
on polarity as the mechanism of isolation, it simplifies
everything, so much easier than channel coordination.  Remember
that Polarity isolation often has much better isolation than
adjacent channel isolation. With OFDM you really need 20db of SNR
min, and polarity isolation will get you that. Its hard to get
that without polarity isolation.  Bottom line is, if you both
choose a different polarity, and stick to it, you wont interfere
with each other, just with yourself. But, self-interference is
much easier to isolate, when you know everything about your own
network, and can make the best choices and trade off for your
network. And you can make those changes without answering or
coordinating with someone else. Thats the benefit of relying on
Pol isolation. If old boy is using Omni, and new WISP is using
sectors, its a perfect situation for old boy to take Verticle and
New WISP to take Horizontal.
Dont get me wrong, I love Ubiquiti MIMO when I can use
it, but MIMO has a major flaw, and that is co-existing with
others is much more difficult, expecially if they are using 20Mhz
gear.
I hate to say it, but ethically, I'd side with Old WISP boy.
Comming in new with MIMO gear would surely going to cause
interference to pre-existing deployments, and the MIMO would
restrict your flexibility to resolve. If a new provider came in
with UNiquiti standard (non MIMO model), Id call it even more
irresponsbile. Bulilt-in spectrum analyzers are NEEDED in today's
day and age to adeqautely co-exist.
To be honest... I really think the burden to prevent interference
belongs to the new installer during installation. An installtion
should not continue, if its known to cause interference. This is
the reason its so important for

 Tom,

 I agree that Linux works very well as a router, but it still doesn't
 compare to a dedicated hardware platform (like Cisco) that was built
 from the ground up to do nothing but routing. We purchased a used Cisco
 12008 router about 1.5 years ago off ebay. They are very, very cheap...
 the only downside is they are BIG and require 240VAC. But it's way cool
 to pull the CPU card while the router is moving 500Mbps of traffic and
 have it not even miss a single ping (due to the redundant CPU card).
 Same goes for the route fabric card. ;)

 We use Mikrotik for our inside core router and this big Cisco for our
 border router to our BGP upstreams. I have slept very well for the last
 1.5 years knowing everything in the box is fully redundant (CPU, route,
 power, etc.). :)

Re: [WISPA] Full BGP on RouterOS

2010-11-03 Thread Travis Johnson

Hi,

The higher end routers do their work in hardware with specific 
processors and memory for each function, which allows things like 
redundancy, speed, and hot-swap capabilities. I can pull any card from 
my Cisco router while it's running and put a different card in, 
configure it, and begin using it... all while the router is still routing.


Realize I am talking about a 12000 series Cisco, that when brand new was 
probably over $250k fully loaded they are now on Ebay for $3k.

Having two routers talking to each other is not the same as a single 
router with redundant parts. I can pull the CPU card from my Cisco and 
the box never misses a single packet because the 2nd CPU card is in the 
same box. Same with the route processor cards. Same with the power supplies.


If you have two boxes doing VRRP, and BGP, if the power supply goes out 
of a box, how long before the 2nd box could fully take over? 30 seconds? 
60 seconds? :(

There's no requirement to run a bridged network in order to operate iBGP.

Then you move the cards into the spare chassis you have sitting 3ft 
away in another rack and boot up and go... :)

However, I have NEVER heard of a Cisco 12000 series backplane failing. 
EVER. Can't say that for an X86 based anything... they fail all the 
time... cards, system boards, processors, memory, power supplies, etc.

Don't get me wrong here... we love Mikrotik running on our X86 
systems we currently have 20 or 30 of them running the heart of our 
network... including one directly behind our Cisco 12008 that does all 
of our routing and deactivation stuff... and handles 450Mbps x 200Mbps 
on a daily basis... :)

The point was, running RouterOS on a device taking multiple BGP feeds... 
which I would never do... Cisco still owns the BGP space... and my next 
choice would be Imagestream.

Re: [WISPA] Full BGP on RouterOS

2010-11-03 Thread Travis Johnson
Agreed. Whenever we buy any major component for our network (big 
routers, licensed links, big switches, etc.) we always buy a spare to 
go with it (if we don't already have one).


Example... our main backbone switch is a Cisco 3550-12T. All of our 
traffic (currently 450Mbps x 200Mbps) goes through this switch so we can 
mirror some of the ports for filtering and traffic monitoring. When we 
first purchased the switch, we bought 2 of them. We mounted the 2nd one 
directly above the first in our rack, and configured it exactly the 
same. So, if that switch ever dies, we simply move a few cables and we 
are back up and going... and at the same time, if we ever need to 
upgrade firmware, we can do it on the 2nd one, test it, and then move it 
into production and upgrade the 1st one with about 5 seconds of 
total downtime while we move cables.


Always, always have spares of your critical equipment. :)

Hot Swap is hard to fully accomplish with PCs. Everyone needs a plan

A standard Rack PC does not have HotSwap CPUs, and it is inevitable 
that sooner or later the Heatsink fan will fail or heat sink grease 
will harden.
And how does one troubleshoot that, on a live router? That is the 
negative of a Linux self made Rack PC. But again, thats the reason for 
a hot spare router to put in place, and a reason for scheduled 
maintenance to occur every couple years after hours, when a 60 
second outage is acceptable. As ISPs start to become gloabal ISPs 
opperating in multiple time zones, it becomes tougher, to find good 
times to do maintenance, but I dont think most WISPs are at that stage 
where it matters that much. When it does matter that much, I'd argue

If you have two boxes doing VRRP, and BGP, if the power supply
goes out of a box, how long before the 2nd box could fully

VXRs and down. Not GSR's and up. I wasn't entirely clear in my last 
message. Like Travis I was also commenting about the Cisco GSR / 12000 
platform. I'm well aware of the performance of a Linux box compared to a VXR. 
We run a few VXR routers in our network in addition to GSR's, BSD routers, and 
MikroTik.

What you're describing really isn't true hardware redundancy. I'm also 
well aware of BGP and its use in a multi-homed environment. We have two 
separate GSRs acting as our edge routers. One in California, one in Arizona. 
Both routers have multiple eBGP peers, and run iBGP between them. They're 
connected by a series of licensed microwave radios with about 155mbps of 
bandwidth between the two. We'll be supplementing that link with a dedicated 
GigE fiber link in the coming months.

I'm not sure what you're getting at regarding bridging between two 
connections. There's no requirement to run a bridged network in order to 
operate iBGP.

I have no doubt Quagga works well in some BGP applications. We don't use it 
because we have requirements for performance  uptime which a Linux/BSD box 
cannot currently meet. We provide voice (TDM) and data services for companies in 
various industries such as mining, manufacturing, aerospace, defense, energy, 
cellular, and even other ISPs. We literally cannot afford to wrestle with the 
issues others on this list experience

Re: [WISPA] Full BGP on RouterOS

2010-11-02 Thread Travis Johnson
Tom,

I agree that Linux works very well as a router, but it still doesn't 
compare to a dedicated hardware platform (like Cisco) that was built 
from the ground up to do nothing but routing. We purchased a used Cisco 
12008 router about 1.5 years ago off ebay. They are very, very cheap... 
the only downside is they are BIG and require 240VAC. But it's way cool 
to pull the CPU card while the router is moving 500Mbps of traffic and 
have it not even miss a single ping (due to the redundant CPU card). 
Same goes for the route fabric card. ;)

We use Mikrotik for our inside core router and this big Cisco for our 
border router to our BGP upstreams. I have slept very well for the last 
1.5 years knowing everything in the box is fully redundant (CPU, route, 
power, etc.). :)

 Note: Quagga has been very reliable for quite some time now. Imagestream and
 Vyatta both use Quagga. Both are great choices for BGP routers.

 I personally use Mandrake (Mandriva) Linux with a slew of custom
 modifications that we have made, loaded on SuperMicro, and then use latest
 Quagga.
 That has worked well for us, the last 5 years. (although, I dont recommend
 that to someone, until they are vastly familiar with their distro of Linux.
 Last thing you want to do is use your BGP router for a Guinee Pig Science
 project, rebooting it all the time to test script changes.) But once you are
 comfortable with your Distro, it works well.

 There are a million arguements for and against Cisco versus Linux, to be
 used for the ISPs' average NOC/POP router/switch. I dont dispute any of the
 arguements. But one area where I believe Linux stands tall, is as a CORE BGP
 router. A core BGP router can be one of the more simplistic configured
 routers because it only really needs to perform one function, BGP routing to
 its connected peers.  For BGP there are two critical needs Fast
 processors and Lots of RAM. In todays world there is no excuse to not have
 both of those.  The problem with Cisco is that it lacks both, unless you pay
 big bucks. Linux on the other hand has an abundance of both, when combined
 with PC-Like hardware.

   I laugh at my competitors, when they say, oh no, BGP reset, had to reload
 BGP tables, now there is latency for like 3 minutes or compromised routing
 for that period or got a route problem, the small prefixes aren't in my
 tables. . On Linux, if you want to restart BGP, well thats like 1 second to
 reload tables. And no need to drop any routes, unless you want to. You could
 have Full routes with like 30 peers from a single router, if you wanted to.
 You can load up Linux with like 32 NICs (qty8 4port GIG NICs) in a 2U case,
 if you want to, and dont even need a Switch. (Although new will cost you
 about $430 per 4port PCI-E Gig NIC).

Re: [WISPA] Looking for Bandwidth Manager

2010-10-14 Thread Travis Johnson

 Hi,

You need to fix your network, not the hardware/software you are running. 
I have over 60 Mikrotik backhaul links, with over 1,000 Mikrotik 
customer radios (plus thousands more Trango and Canopy) and have NONE of 
the issues you describe.


Our main edge router is a Mikrotik box (x86 with Quad core) and it has 
thousands of rules and NAT translations, moving 450Mbps x 150Mbps on a 
daily basis, and has been up for over 6 months right now (due only to 
firmware upgrades).


Having your network bridged is the problem. Take time out and fix that, 
or you will continue to have more and more problems...

Really Josh, you want me to rehash this?  To be simple I'm not a true 
geek, I barely speak linux and Router OS not at all.  Our network of 
700 over 12 towers is bridged, a big no-no but I can't keep radios up 
long enough to make us routed along with the growth sprut we've had 
this year (we 're averaging 3 installs a day with one installer/field 
tech).  We've found that if you get over 50 on Mikrotik you start 
getting latency issues, four of our towers have over that.  When I was 
all Mikrotik (well 90% that 10% Moto) it worked great for about a year 
and a half, then the packet storms started, then radios started doing 
weird intermittent things like turning off.  Sure we did the obvious, 
change passwords, isolate the radios from the rest of the network but 
it just started to get worse, probably traffic driven from our ongoing 
growth that the greater demand for more bandwidth (we are 90% 
residential so Netflix type stuff).


To solve this we started replacing backhauls with Ubiquiti radios.  
Ubiquiti allows more traffic so the added pressure really started to 
take down the Mikrotik AP's, ports and bridges now drop with 
undiagnoisable (new word) regularity.  Then the bandwidth manager 
failed, Butch rebuilt it but for some reason the upgrade to 4.11 made 
failures happen more often that were like the AP's, dropped ports and 
bridges.  We compensated by making a path on the Ethernet side and 
in-network side so we could maybe ... (fix the disabled port/bridge) 
from either end.  We are spending all of our time building redundant 
this and redundant that until we realized one thing, on every outage 
Mikrotik's had cascading failures shutting down ports or turning off 
radios (disabling)  meanwhile Ubiquiti never went down, ever.  So we 
started pulling all Mikrotik backhauls, now we only lose AP's and the 
bandwidth manager.  Since the bandwidth manager takes the entire 
network down we want replace it.  Now you're up to speed on where we 
are, I call Mikrotik my 'backwards momentum' mover, we have to stop 
our forward motion on building and installing so we can restore 
service, it takes the fun out of this business thats for sure.

 From personal experience I can tell you that you will be very
 happy when you make the switch.  I just replaced three Mikrotik
 BH/AP units, pings went from their rather wild 30-120ms swings to
 a steady 15ms no matter what time.  Just be ready for three
 things, you can't put usernames in the ACL like Mikrotik, there
 is less routing because UBNT expects filtering to be done in your
 router before their equipment, and it will never go down because
 it's just a transparent bridge so traffic that would have
 overwhelmed Mikrotik equipment and crashed the LAN port won't
 happen on Ubiquity.  Oh and you're right, I've found that if you
 use dual-polarity you can't mix that with non-dual and
 connections with non-, its far better to have all Airmax running
 rather than a mix, this means replacing CPE so that all customers
 on that tower are the same equipment, spendy (relative to UBNT's
 low cost) but worth it.

 equipment.  So I am considering taking down the Mikrotik and 120
 degree sector and putting up a UBNT Rocket and Airmax 120 sector.
 It will take time to physically switch all my clients to new UBNT
 Airmax equipment but would like to get it done before the snow
 flies.

 Has anyone down this?  Success?  I know I cannot turn on Airmax
 till everyone is on the UBNT with that capability but does it work
 fine till you get it on?

  The RB1000 is not much of a router when under load. You can build a 1u 
ATOM based system for less money that has 4x the horsepower.

 I am not aware of a similar document from Juniper, however one there
 product brochure they do list pps performance number. Keep in mind they
 do packet handling very different from CISCO, as such are able to handle
 traffic better.

 Using Google, some sites show RB1000 is capable of doing 199,000 pps
 with Connect track off... check the Cisco Chart... that is about 100Mbps
 of traffic.

 I cannot find the PPS rating on RB1100... so if you know would love to

 of what the PowerRouters can handle...

 Welcome to the Mid-range of traffic handling...

 There is nothing on the market place that is affordable that will do

 Best thing you can do is deploy two devices.. a Gig Switch, pick your

 For Core Router in the Cisco world you are looking at something with a
 G1 or G2 engine ... (7206vxr or small 7301) range $5k to 10K on the used
 market place.

 In Juniper Land... M10i or an M20 (if you like redundancy...) cost on
 the secondary markets about $8 to $10k

 You could use a Mikrotik Power Router.. cost $ 2500 to $5000

 Only the Cisco 7301 and Mikrotik are small and consume little power...
 Everything else is big and consumes power.

 Most common, cost efficient network design would be to use GigE Switches
 in a ring or your favorite network topology, with one or two Routers
 located at DataCenters or NOC...


 If you find some other solution, that can do what you are looking for,
 please share it with us, cause we have been looking too... what I am

 You need to worry about TCAM (hardware route memory) in addition to
 RAM on Layer 3 switches and apart from decked out Cisco 6500s or
 greater you aren't going to find that.

 The Juniper MX80 should work. It is 2U and can have 48 GigE ports. You
 should be able to get it for $30-50K.

 Alternatively you could try a multihop BGP setup like Cogent has been
 known to do.
 Setup one BGP session between the customer and your Layer 3 switch at
 the tower. This carriers a route for your border router/route
 reflector to the customer and vice versa.
 Then setup a BGP session between the customer and your border
 router/route reflector.

 Or you could drag MPLS into it but 2 simple BGP sessions seems like
 the most straightforward solution to me.

Not much of a point to the RB1000 when a 1U Atom box is cheaper and

Re: [WISPA] mikrotik vs ubiquiti

2010-09-04 Thread Travis Johnson
  To each their own... we use 100% MT on our backbone (over 70 
production links, some up to 73 miles). We are fully routed (even on 
each wireless hop), so using MT works great because I don't have to have 
a separate router like if I used UBNT. I have full telnet, speed test, 
packet sniffing, and routing protocols at EVERY wireless hop (we run OSPF).

And MT didn't build the case that holds an MT radio on a UBNT dish... 
that's a 3rd party thing. I guess it's hilarious that UBNT made a 2ft 
dish because Pac Wireless has had a 2ft dish for 6+ years? :)

 We always have, because we will not build our own uncertified gear. If it
 comes down to an interference issue we do not want the FCC fine or the
 stigma of being nailed for violating FCC rules.

 That said, we like the routerboards pretty well for use at our hotspots,
 with certified radios. The routerboards have a lot of features.

 As far as UBNT goes, the person who said Airmax is a game changer is
 correct.

 We are sometimes even able to use UBNT in situations where we might have
 used an Orthagon (sic?)
 We can use narrower channels and get more bandwidth
 When (and I'm sure it is coming) timing/synch becomes available, it will
 frost the cake.
 The support organization listens to users and takes suggestions and doesn't
 break more things than it fixes.

 And finally- I think it is absolutely hilarious that the latest MT
 innovation is a device that leverages something that UBNT already developed
 (this routerboard that snaps on a UBNT dish thingie). Of course I would snap
 on a Rocket M5 instead- it has an FCC sticker (ducking).

Re: [WISPA] Akamai / other caching servers

 Yes, but the bandwidth savings are not worth the headaches (another 
box or two to maintain, some sites don't like to be cached, customer 
support calls, web sites blocking a certain IP address because ALL the 
traffic from your network is coming from the cache server IP, etc.).


Unless you are paying a FORTUNE for bandwidth, it's not worth doing.

 Its possible to prevent Squid from caching certain sites. Just create an ACL 
 to deny caching them. Still too much to maintain? Deny caching all content by 
 default, then create an ACL which only allows caching of sites you choose.

 If you don't want your proxy requests sourced from a single IP then use 
 TProxy (http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/Tproxy4). With this your proxy 
 can be fully transparent appearing as if the requests were sourced directly 
 from a client instead of your Squid box.

 Get a Cisco router and redirect traffic to Squid using WCCP. If your Squid 
 box dies the router automatically stops redirecting the traffic, and your 
 users continue to surf the web normally.

Re: [WISPA] Bandwidth Providers

2010-09-01 Thread Travis Johnson
  You can almost always get the new pricing, if you want to sign a new 
contract for the same as your existing one. I have done that at least 20 
times with Qwest on PRI and T1 lines for customers.

The original poster just said they won't give me the new pricing. 
Sometimes you have to work at it, but as you said, most of the time they 
are willing to do it if the new contract total value is more than the 
existing contract value.

 Not so fast... Sure, if the other party wont let you out of a contract, the
 ethical thing to do is honor it.
 BUT... its not unethical for the two parties involved to mutually agree to
 change an agreement for mutual benefit. Most contracts specifically allow
 that.
 There are many reasons a party might want to let the other party out of a
 contract term or renegotiate it.

 A vendor does not benefit if a Buyer goes out of business.
 A Vendor does not benefit if a Buyer is locked in for another year at a high
 rate, if that rate forces the buyer to signup with another provider at a
 lower rate for the rest of enternity.
 Its called customer retention.  When the market changes sometime contracts
 need to adapt with the new market conditions.
 One must also ask what it might cost to inforce a contract, and sometimes
 taht is more than the revenue that would be discounted by keeping the
 custoemr happy and retained long term and paying on time.

 I'm not going to mention any names, but at ISPCON, someone I considered a
 mentor spoke at a session, and what he learned was So what if there is a
 contract... Hold out, and convince your vendors why they should work with
 you on price. While under contract, he was able to get most vendors to lower
 prices, for mutual benefit.

 Admittedly, ATT is not like a company that would easily budge on contract
 terms, expecially in an underserved area where they are a near monopoly, but
 it doesn't mean that they wont.

Re: [WISPA] Akamai / other caching servers

 You monitor your usage on all the links up to, and including your 
backbone. If I have 100Meg from my core to a tower, does that mean I can 
only sell ten 10Meg connections? Not if my usage never goes above 
50Mbps or even 80Mbps. I graph and monitor every single link, every 
port on every switch, etc. and we use that info to know when to upgrade 
links, etc.


Out of five customers with 10Meg connections, only one of them actually 
bumps up against the 10Meg, and that's only for a couple hours per day. 
Businesses never use what they think they need... but when they run a 
speed test, they want to see 10Meg. :)

Re: [WISPA] Broadband work with Indian Reservation

2010-08-13 Thread Travis Johnson
The reservation in our area put an actual ordinance in effect that bans 
all outdoor antennas on any structure (including their homes, sheds, 
garages, barns, etc.). We still do installs there (along with 2 or 3 
other providers), but technically they could enforce it.


The reason? Because they are going to do their own internet, TV and 
VoIP solution... they have only been talking about it for almost 6+ 
years and have not installed a single piece of equipment. They have two 
nice water towers, and a nice tower up on a 500ft tall butte right in 
the middle of their area... but they won't allow ANYONE on any of it 
because they are going to do it.


This is the EXACT reason the tribes are SO FAR behind, and can't compete 
in the real world. They won't allow us to bring them technology that 
would help all their people. Instead they just built a huge new Tribal 
headquarters and are trying to get money to build a huge gambling casino.

I will be attending a Strategy Meeting in New York later this month

Intersections International).  Alex Goldman will be covering these 
meetings as well.  Between now and then, I would like to hear from 
WISPs across the country that may have worked with Indian tribes in 
the past or are presently working with them.  Part of Alex's articles 
will focus on how private ISPs are successfully working with the 
Indian Nation, however I would also like to hear the downside of 
anyone's experiences.  NABA has reached out to WISPA to develop 
alliances and collaboration, both on the lobbying front and the 
development of public/private partnerships so that many of the grants 
awarded to the Indian tribes will have a good local ISP partner to 
assist in the implementation of the projects. 

 

If your ISP business is near a reservation, I would like to hear from 
you in the next week.

Re: [WISPA] OT, new IP addresses blackholed

2010-06-28 Thread Travis Johnson
Keep pushing your upstream(s) to get it fixed. Daily calls.

We had the same issue with our 69.20.128 block about 6 years ago... 
apparently the entire 69 block used to be unrouteable IP space until 
ARIN opened it up and starting giving it out to poor suckers (like 
me)... the problem was most providers didn't take it out of their filters.

 Hi All,

 We're trying to get some newly assigned IP addresses to work right.

 199.204.200.x thru 199.204.208.x

 My upstream tells me that their upstream is trying to work with ATT on the 
 issue (that's where a trace route dies).

 We can get to most internet sites, but those within ATT's network seem to 
 be dumping into a black hole.

 I've GOT to get my addresses online.  We're completely out of space on two 
 of our class c's.

 Any ideas for me?

Re: [WISPA] Network Redesign

2010-06-28 Thread Travis Johnson
One way to conserve IP space is to route a subnet to each tower rather 
than each AP. Have every AP plugged into a switch at the tower, and then 
into a router before it leaves that tower. That way you can use up the 
entire subnet before adding another. ;)

 We're in the process of doing this too.

 We're going to run a bridged backbone (mostly) with routing AP's.  Mikrotik

 For IP space we went to ARIN and got our own (two upstreams on opposite
 sides of the network).

 We were able to get 8 class c's this way.  We're also subnetting a LOT of

 When we run out of space on an AP we'll just add another subnet to that AP

Yes, we see 6-8db fluctuations during temperature changes... but that's 
an 18ghz frequency thing, not specific to Trango. We also saw the same

 Make sure you don't use RPS, the ports will not come back up once they

 but are happy so far with the performance... ~250MB FDX almost 25 miles.  
 Modulation has dropped in rain but link never stopped passing traffic.  
 Looks like its more sensitive to temp inversion fluctuations than 5Ghz but 
 one side is at 1200ft so it may have something to do with that as its 
 higher than we have ever put gear around here.

 Good luck fixing your problem, report back once you figure it out.

 Subject: [WISPA] What are the Challenges?

   
 Members and WISP followers,



 We would like to better understand some of the challenges that many of you
 face on a daily basis as we continue to fine tune the Regional Meeting
 Agenda.  As you know the 1st Regional Meeting is scheduled for July 21st 
 and
 22nd in St. Louis. We have been pleasantly surprised at the response we 
 have
 received from vendors in our industry in committing to exhibit at our
 Regional Meeting.



 One thing we have noticed during the signup period is that many WISPs that
 are attending are traveling long distances to come to St. Louis in the 
 first
 stages of signup.  We originally picked St. Louis because of its central
 location in the US and because there are a tremendous amount of WISP
 companies throughout the Central US.  We really anticipated that 70% of 
 our
 attendees at this meeting would come from a 500 mile radius from St. 
 Louis.
 This does not seem to be the case and we find ourselves wondering why this
 to be the case.



 My first inclination is to blame it on weather.  I realize that weather in
 the Central US has been extremely volatile this summer with persistent
 storms continually moving across the region.  I am asking if this is 
 really
 the reason preventing many Midwestern WISPs from signing up for this 
 meeting
 or not.  If it is something else, I would like to investigate further.  We
 believe it is our obligation to the Vendors who have committed staff, 
 money
 and resources to attend the meeting, that we ask these tough questions.



 Our goal and the budget for the RM are based on a count of 200 attendees. 
 We
 are pretty sure we will reach this goal but if we are not going to get
 there, we need to start preparing now.  As you may or may not know, we do
 have a price increase of $50 per attendee beginning on July 1st.  It would
 be silly of me not to point this out to any prospective attendees.



 This week, we were able to negotiate a much nicer hotel and meeting
 facilities at the Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis.  The Renaissance 
 actually
 lowered its room rate surprisingly to $79 per night and threw in free
 internet, parking and shuttle.  These concessions are saving our
 participants nearly $60 from the previous hotel.  The catering and AV
 budgets alone exceed the registration fees we are charging for members.



 Therefore, I ask that everyone describe your intentions for attending or 
 not
 intending and send a brief description why.  If it is summer vacation, 
 that
 is fine, that is a risk we took when choosing these dates.  If it is 
 summer
 activities such as 4H fairs, baseball tournaments, or whatever, just let 
 me
 know.  If it is the weather and damage has not allowed you to book because
 of excessive repair bills, that is also fine.  I am just trying to get a
 feel on the pulse of the industry as we analyze the success of this 
 meeting
 and possibly plan the next one.



 If there are other challenges you wish to discuss, let me know.  I would
 rather the Board be aware so that we can formulate policy and programs to
 alleviate these concerns as we move forward.



 Respectfully,



 Rick Harnish

 We just upgraded one of our 18GHz links to 1.2.3 and now it won't pass
 traffic.  We can get into both sides but nothing is going between
 them. They show a link and linktest is working, just nothing is
 passing.

 Toggled back to the previous firmware and that didn't fix it either.

 Any ideas?

Re: [WISPA] [Motorola II] Network Redesign

2010-06-25 Thread Travis Johnson
It's not that easy anymore. Seven years ago when we applied to get our 
first ARIN block, it took about 2-3 days and some paperwork. We got a 
/18 without too much trouble.

A year ago, we started the process to get another block. This took over 
a month, with over 30 emails back and forth, and even then they would 
only allocate us a /20 because that's all we would need for the next 2 
years. When I asked about year 3 and on, they said re-apply for more 
space then.

Meanwhile, places like Mercedes have a /8 and they are using less than 
1% of it. :(

 Getting new blocks from you upstream should take them about 10 minutes.

 I recommend you go straight to ARIN and do the justification for a /16.

 um... Just think about your network as it will be in ten years, at your
 current rate of expansion, and then project your need ahead two months
 instead of 10 years, and you'll be fine.

 I got all my /24 and /16 NET-BLKs from nic.ddn.mil under direct

 justifications even when it was internic.net, before ARIN.

   
 Anyway, we haven't run out yet, I'm just trying to get an idea and

 We are in the process of redesigning our entire network from our

 Currently everything is bridged and on the same physical network.
 Obviously we are wanting to change this for many reasons. Subnetting
 it out on the private side isn't a problem, but the public side is.

 We are leaning towards having routeros based routers at every tower
 and subnetting all the way to the AP's. We don't have enough public
 IP's to allow enough room for much growth. My main question is, what
 is the best course of action once you run out of IP's at an AP or
 tower? What is the most efficient way of bringing more IP's in without
 renumbering everything?

 I appreciate any and all responses on or off list. Let me know if more
 information is needed to give better answers.

I knew MB had a /8, because I remember an article in Time magazine a 
while ago that they were going to assign a static IP address to every 
single car they produced. Not sure if that ever happened, but that was 
their plan 5 years ago.

 After I was done with my few minutes of doing things, I wanted to make sure 
 I had not physically disconnected or accidentally unhooked anything (messing

 Acer Aspire One to be precise, running windows xp, using the normal wifi

 were connected, and then I decided to run a speed test.   I got about 30KB/s

 speed, which is like painfully slow.   I was standing outside, with the

 So, I decided to see what it was associated to, and it was another access 
 point ...  11 MILES AWAY!   I confirmed it by the SSID and by the ip dhcp 
 had assigned, as belonging to the ap 11 miles distant.

 It has no external antenna, just the one the factory built into the netbook.

 I have detected, using netstumbler and the internal antenna on my laptop 
 (dell C610 and CM9 installed) access points over 24 miles away before, but 
 this is the longest, by far, I have been able to get a real connection, dhcp

 assignment, and transfer data.

Re: [WISPA] Ubiquiti - Success Feels Good

2010-06-12 Thread Travis Johnson
Hi,

I would still like to know what it's going to do when an entire 
polarization gets jammed with noise? Will the radio still pass traffic? 
Or will there be so many errors that it will overtake the link and 
nothing will work?

 I jsut wanted to mention, that it really does give peice of mind knowing 
 that there is a MIMO technology out there that I can count on, that is 
 inexpensive.
 I just finished my 4th Ubiquiti PTP link (over last two weeks).  Once again, 
 Painless and perfect.
 I got 38mb one way 22mb the other with 10Mhz Channel MCS 15.  And with 20Mhz 
 channel up to 69mbps one way, and 80 the other.
 Link Quality nad Capacity showed like 96%.  LAtency was also down under 2ms.
 But my point here is not the speed. It was that it was easy. I just put it 
 up, and it worked. Air view was helpful, finding channel. All 4 installs 
 worked that way. No hassle, no fuss.
 This last one was a 15 mile link, Rocket5M on each side, with PACWireless 
 2ft dish on one end and a 23 db panel on the other.
 Nothing has ever been this easy.

 With that said There were some confusing things. I ran V on Chain0, and 
 H on Chain1 got -66, then for grins swapped conectors on CPE side only, so 
 Chain0 was H and Chain1 was V and got -65.
 I do not understand why this happened. I would have thought signal should 
 have dropped by -20 db or so? Wierd. This did not just happen when in 
 Alignment mode. I may have been in MCS7 mode at the time though.
 So it appears it must be transmitting on both pols in MCS7 mode, I dont have 
 any other way to explain it. But none the less, it just worked.

 I'm concern about using it at PtMP, because we use Station WDS, and AP only 
 supports up to 6 WDS clients. So it wont scale for PTMP Briding clients. 
 Unless that can be curred. But I tell you for PTP, or a couple associations, 
 its pretty sweet.

 (I still like T-Link-45s better when I only need 25-30mbps, but  the UBNT 
 has shown to be a wonderful experience, also.)

 I'm getting mixed information form my accountants on this and want to

 expensing or depreciating the equipment? Equipment being radios (AP 
 CPE), antennas, switches, firewalls, etc.
 With the cost of the electronics being so low, its not making much
 sense to depreciate. Which takes me to a second question: Have any
 WISPs been audited by the IRS for this reason?

Re: [WISPA] legal entity type - was taxes

The other thing to remember is with a corporation, technically you are 
not self-employed... which can make a big difference when trying to get 
personal loans, etc.

 I'm with Travis on this one.  Sometimes we take the entire hit at once,

 deductions and what the equipment is.

 Our accountant has taken a lot of time to learn this industry and is

 good.  The phone number is 509.982.2922 if anyone is looking for a good

 Travis, thanks for your input. I'm really looking for feedback as to
 what our industry's standard is. I submit that the IRS does not look
 at it as a personal, business choice. I'd rather do it correctly now
 than find out from the IRS I'm doing it wrong.

 I'm getting mixed information form my accountants on this and want to
 know what everyone else is doing. The basic question is this: Are you
 expensing or depreciating the equipment? Equipment being radios (AP 
 CPE), antennas, switches, firewalls, etc.
 With the cost of the electronics being so low, its not making much
 sense to depreciate. Which takes me to a second question: Have any
 WISPs been audited by the IRS for this reason?

Re: [WISPA] ROS on x86 - Backup Everything (system, config, license)?

2010-06-03 Thread Travis Johnson
The ROS license is stored in the MBR of the hard drive. There is no way 
to copy it or back it up. It is tied directly to that drive.

 I've googled and searched and can't find an answer to this. I posted to the 
 MT forum, but I thought I'd try here too. Thanks!

 I would like to know if it's possible to back up the entire RouterOS install 
 including the license on an x86 installation. I have a computer on which I 
 was using for RouterOS but have swapped it out for an RB750. I want to use 
 the computer for other things (perhaps Astaro or Untangle) but I don't want 
 to lose the RouterOS license, and I would also like to have the computer 
 ready to go back in service with RouterOS should the RB750 fail (I lost one 
 to lightning before adding lightning protection). Understand I am not trying 
 to pirate RouterOS or do anything which is contrary to the terms of the 
 license. I just want to use the machine for something else, with the 
 possibility of reverting back to RouterOS if the RB750 which replaced it 
 should fail. If I didn't live in the jungle of South America I'd run down to 
 Best Buy and pick up another SATA hard drive and use that for the other OS. 
 But I only have one drive so I'm looking at imaging the drive with RouterOS 
 on it and keep t
 ha
  t image safe so I can use the hard drive for something else. Should this 
 work? Any advice would be appreciated.

 Greg
