[WISPA] Some VOIP Experimenting

2005-09-27 Thread Matt Larsen - Lists
Hello all, I've been doing some experimenting with VOIP and asterisk over my wireless network and came up with a few general observations that I thought might be useful for those of you looking at voip and how it impacts your network: 1) My test voip server is a P3 550 with 512MB of

Hi Matt, We are using Asterisk too and it does seem to be very feature rich. When you where testing did you notice a difference between the voice quality of GSM and G729? Also, is your Asterisk server peering with your provider using IAX2 and G711? To optimize your StarOS AP I

Matt, I found an easy way to set up an asterisk box with AMP called [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://asteriskathome.sourceforge.net/, they have good help pages. You burn an ISO disk and then let it do it's thing on boot. It will wipe the hard drive clean and do a fresh install but it works great.

Auction, I hate that evil word. Really guys, if there is any time to hammer congressional legislators and Home land security personelle, NOW is the time. Before our precious spectrum is auctioned off to the special interets. Auctioning off 700Mhz to a major IELC could be the death of

[WISPA] Lightning protecting WRAPs

2005-09-27 Thread Tom DeReggi
What are people doing for WRAP board lightning protection? Basically the WRAP board has a part that blows up, if it receives more than 21 Volts to its DC input. So a typical CAT5 Lightning protector that protects the DC pairs at only 35V, 50V or 60V would pretty much be useless for protecting

I see you have made your introduction K. :-) I think you guys will find this lady's enthusiasm toward policy change to be no less than revolutionary. She has an eye toward a complete rework of the FCC (as in destroy it and rebuild governance of spectrum and policy from the ground up) to
