[WISPA] Missing Bridgewave

One of our installers lost one end of a Bridgewave GE60. According to our reseller we need to purchase a complete new link. What would you guys do in this case? Press charges against the installer and file with insurance? Just fire the employee? Anyone else had someone this stupid do

You could do it a couple ways. First, use BGP multihop inside your network to connect all three routers. Second, use a tunnel to connect them with normal BGP. Then, traffic will go out the best BGP route. WISPA

Is there a simple solution to convert single mode to multimode? We have a location where the customer required their contract put in the conduit and pull their own cables. Well, they installed and ran 650ft of single mode even though we explicitly said multimode. This is for a Bridgewave

The longer the cable run, the more you will need 24V. If your unit runs reliably at 12-15V, then you are fine. However, if it starts rebooting during tests, then you will need to increase the voltage. WISPA Wants

A RB450G should be fine for what you need. Or use an RB493AH if you need more ports. If you can wait a couple months, the new RB1100 is coming out which looks pretty sweet. WISPA Wants You! Join today!

I think one of the main differences is BGP failover. With one box, your BGP session never drops. With two distinct servers, the session will drop and the second router will start it up. Then, when the primary comes back online, the session will drop again and restart.
