So the AP will deliver 14Mbps of bandwidth even if all the SM's are only 
running at 1x rate?

Another quick question...

If you are running a Canopy Advantage AP and you use regular Canopy 
SM's, can the AP still deliver the 14Mbps of bandwidth, or will it be 
limited to 7Mbps (like the SM's)?

Basically the timing is measured in nano seconds so it takes to long 
for RF to transmit the data across the wireless links to continue to 
propagate the timing signal.  But if you put a GPS sync generating 
device at AP#3 it would be in perfect time with AP#1 and close enough 
timing with AP#2 that they all would get along.


One thing to keep in mind is if you are the only Canopy shop in the 
area you can have your AP's generate the sync pulse and avoid the cost 
of the GPS synchronizing items.  Also again as for the distance 
statement.  6 AP's in a cluster sharing 3 channels have to be synced.  
believe me the messy antenna on the Canopy units dont have a good 
enough F/B ratio to not hear another AP 6 away from it.  The two AP's 
that are back to back share the same channel so that when they 
transmit the SM's that are listening are as far away from each other 
as possible and thus reduce any chance of talking over each other.  
The largest benefit that GPS sync allows is to add additional capacity 
to area's by allowing for more towers to be in a smaller area without 
self interference.  If long range rural deployments are the plan then 
GPS sync will only benefit you if you have competitors utilizing the

cluster has about 84mb total (Classic Canopy would be 42mb) FTP 
bandwidth available to it.  If more is needed you can place the towers 
with in a few miles and divide a cell into two micro cells each with a 
possible 84mb of total bandwidth for a total of 168mb serviced to a 
given area. One last note, GPS timing will not allow for two separate 
clusters of the same type ( two 2.4ghz clusters) to be on the same 
tower.  I can't write out whats in my head on this getting a

Hi,

First, the spec sheet on Motorola's website says -86 RSSI.

What happens when you have more than 3 towers outside of the 8 mile 
range of GPS sync? The 2.4ghz signal will definately travel that far, 
causing self-interference, correct?

If you are buying all new hardware (P9) it will all do 2X rate (14Mbps). We
run Advantage AP's and Legacy SM's, here's why:

With the Advantage AP you it will fun full 2X 14Mbps all the time. Legacy
SM's will run Full 2x Rate for the duration of the burst setting in the SM,
alter the Burt bucket is expended it will rate limit itself to a max 7Mbps,
Still run in 2x rate but it limits the Ethernet port throughput.

It is kind of confusing at first.

limited to 7Mbps (like the SM's)?

Trying to decide if I want to use Advantage SM's or just regular?

Well I have had 2.4ghz radio's link up at -89db (not very well mind 
you but...) so I don't know what to tell you other then Moto has 
traditionally understated there spec sheets.  The GPS is what sets the 
timing for the AP's.  The AP's coordinate the timing slots for all 
SM's registered to them.  So how it works is that all AP's on channel 
1 across the world all transmit at the same time, and all SM's synced 
to a AP on channel 1 with GPS timing from the AP listen at the same 
time.  Distance is not relevant unless you are utilizing the feature 
set of the SM to retransmit a GPS sync pulse that it receives from and 
AP to a BH or AP.  The lag that is introduced by having to transmit 
that pulse info across the wireless link to the SM retransmitting is 
the only time that distance can come into play.  The application this 
is used for is for a cheap repeater system so that you dont have to 
have a GPS synchronizing device at every tower.
/SM
GPS --AP#1 /
   \
 \SM (retransmitting GPS sync pulse) --AP#2 
--SM (retransmitting GPS sync pulse) --AP#3 (this AP will be out of 
sync with AP#1)

Basically the timing is measured in nano seconds so it takes to long 
for RF to transmit the data across the wireless links to continue to 
propagate the timing signal.  But if you put a GPS sync generating 
device at AP#3 it would be in perfect time with AP#1 and close enough 
timing with AP#2 that they all would get along.

One thing to keep in mind is if you are the only Canopy shop in the 
area you can have your AP's generate the sync pulse and avoid the cost 
of the GPS synchronizing items.  Also again as for the distance 
statement.  6 AP's in a cluster sharing 3 channels have to be synced.  
believe me the messy antenna on the Canopy units dont have a good 
enough F/B ratio to not hear another AP 6 away from it.  The two AP's 
that are back to back share the same channel so that when they 
transmit the SM's that are listening are as far away from each other 
as possible and thus reduce any chance of talking over each other.  
The largest benefit that GPS sync allows is to add additional capacity 
to area's by allowing for more towers to be in a smaller area without 
self interference.  If long range rural deployments are the plan then 
GPS sync will only benefit you if you have competitors utilizing the 
same equipment and configuration in the area.  So a Moto advantage 
cluster has about 84mb total (Classic Canopy would be 42mb) FTP 
bandwidth available to it.  If more is needed you can place the towers 
with in a few miles and divide a cell into two micro cells each with a 
possible 84mb of total bandwidth for a total of 168mb serviced to a 
given area. One last note, GPS timing will not allow for two separate 
clusters of the same type ( two 2.4ghz clusters) to be on the same 
tower.  I can't write out whats in my head on this getting a 
little late in the night but if you wanted to I could talk to you over 
the phone and explain it.  Send me an email to anthonyw (at) 
broadband-mn.com and Ill give you my cell phone number or give you a

 a unit with a 60* pattern (Trango or 
Canopy).  Just include the$50 for a reflector or stinger from 
http://www.wirelessbehive.com





Based on the information from Mike, I could not use Canopy. In 
several areas, I have 4-5 towers located within 5 miles of each 
other how do I do that with Canopy? With Trango, I use a 
different channel for the sector pointing toward another tower 
(frequency planning and coordination is very important) and 
everything works great. Is there a solution for this with Canopy?



This is where GPS sync comes in.  You can point two different tower 
locations on the same frequency at each other and they will not 
interfere with each other.  This is how it is possible to do a 6 AP 
cluster on one tower with only 3 non overlapping channels.




Also, by using only a 10mhz spectrum per channel, Trango's channel 
1 and channel 8 are actually outside the reach of Canopy and 802.11 
(for the most part) and thus can almost always be used in a noisy 
environment.



Remember with Canopy you generally don't have to avoid 
interference.  Find the cleanest channel and 90% of the time you 
will be the few db louder then the noise that you need to make a 
viable link.

Well, so far as we can tell the only thing that can kill canopy, 
IS CANOPY.
We have put it up against WaveRider, Alvarion, and 802.11b. They 
all fell of

the face of the earth.
We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE 
and more

on the way. (I realize there are many people bigger than us.)

We use a mix of MTI Omni's, MTI or Tiltek 120deg Sectors (MTI for 
Horizontal
and Tiltek for Vertical) and integrated 60deg sectors (I really 
wish someone
would come out with a descent H-pol as I don't like the integrated 
antenna)

with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have 
speed of

light issues from tower to tower.

Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, 
yes. You
just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this 
mean I

recommend it, NO.

Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so 
many AP's in
a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At 
least we know

there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 
900 that
will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor 
was
lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a 
long ways.

It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

YMMV.

I'd be interested in further explanation on this topic. We have

Granted we don't have a large amount of pmp, but I would certainly

Basically the timing is measured in nano seconds so it takes to long 
for RF to transmit the data across the wireless links to continue to 
propagate the timing signal.  But if you put a GPS sync generating 
device at AP#3 it would be in perfect time with AP#1 and close enough 
timing with AP#2 that they all would get along.

One thing to keep in mind is if you are the only Canopy shop in the

of the GPS synchronizing items.  Also again as for the distance 
statement.  6 AP's in a cluster sharing 3 channels have to be synced.  
believe me the messy antenna on the Canopy units dont have a good 
enough F/B ratio to not hear another AP 6 away from it.  The two AP's 
that are back to back share the same channel so that when they 
transmit the SM's that are listening are as far away from each other 
as possible and thus reduce any chance of talking over each other.  
The largest benefit that GPS sync allows is to add additional capacity 
to area's by allowing for more towers to be in a smaller area without 
self interference.  If long range rural deployments are the plan then 
GPS sync will only benefit you if you have competitors utilizing the 
same equipment and configuration in the area.  So a Moto advantage 
cluster has about 84mb total (Classic Canopy would be 42mb) FTP 
bandwidth available to it.  If more is needed you can place the towers 
with in a few miles and divide a cell into two micro cells each with a 
possible 84mb of total bandwidth for a total of 168mb serviced to a 
given area. One last note, GPS timing will not allow for two separate 
clusters of the same type ( two 2.4ghz clusters) to be on the same

? With Trango, I use a 
different channel for the sector pointing toward another tower 
(frequency planning and coordination is very important) and 
everything works great. Is there a solution for this with Canopy?


This is where GPS sync comes in.  You can point two different tower 
locations on the same frequency at each other and they will not 
interfere with each other.  This is how it is possible to do a 6 AP 
cluster on one tower with only 3 non overlapping channels.




Also, by using only a 10mhz spectrum per channel, Trango's channel 1 
and channel 8 are actually outside the reach of Canopy and 802.11 
(for the most part) and thus can almost always be used in a noisy 
environment.


Remember with Canopy you generally don't have to avoid interference.  
Find the cleanest channel and 90% of the time you will be the few db 
louder then the noise that you need to make a viable link.

We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE

with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have 
speed of

light issues from tower to tower.

Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, 
yes. You

just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this mean I
recommend it, NO.

Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so 
many AP's in
a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At 
least we know

there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 
900 that

will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor was
lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a 
long ways.

It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

YMMV.

Jon,

For sure I'm all over GPS for all licensed (world of small channels) and
when there is a small amount of spectrum to work with in UL. For
example, in the coming 3650MHz band, GPS should be a must for PMP. Same
with scaled 900 (we offer it there). It is just not needed with VL. What
for? It already gives massive capacity without any re-use. Even with GPS
and re-use I do not think Canopy can get close to the amount of capacity
VL can offer. Frankly, even if we had it for VL no one would buy it.

No argument from me on the scheduled MAC front, except to the extent
that in UL it needs to come with good interference mitigation (not
talking about self-inflicted interference) techniques to make it useful.

alvarion debate from my standpoint, more so a scheduled mac(canopy, 
wimax, 3G...) vs unscheduled(wifi, VL, currently Trango). I'd predict 
that as wisp education progresses, they will realize the power of 
scheduled mac and GPS support. By then maybe the rest of the BreezeMAX 
code will have made way to the VL engineers and everyone can be happy
:-)

It is all to prevent self-inflicted interference (remember, Canopy does
not even have ATPC) and to allow for channel re-use. Other systems,
like
VL, do not need it. It provides far more capacity than Canopy, so it
does not need to re-use channels and with basic channel planning you
don't have issues with self-interference.

RE: [WISPA] vendor specs -- Jon

Patrick, ditto on the 3650 band. However the reality is that self and external
interference in the UL world is all too common. You say UL bands or at  
least VL doesn't need GPS capability because of so much capacity. If  
you want I can get you a list of wifi/trango/etc.-to-Canopy 'converts'  
that will tell you otherwise.

Licensed carriers use GPS to greatly diminish what we experience as common day
interference problems. IMO I can't blame the FCC for not giving more  
spectrum than they have as we've already trashed what we've been given.
Lastly, what Moto did was brought GPS sync to the UL world however as  
standard option and in very economical form factor, not expensive  
chassis and such. If you haven't already, get your VL guys with your  
WIMAX guys and you could have a clear winner down the road! :)

Quoting Patrick Leary [EMAIL PROTECTED]:


Jon,

For sure I'm all over GPS for all licensed (world of small channels) and
when there is a small amount of spectrum to work with in UL. For
example, in the coming 3650MHz band, GPS should be a must for PMP. Same
with scaled 900 (we offer it there). It is just not needed with VL. What
for? It already gives massive capacity without any re-use. Even with GPS
and re-use I do not think Canopy can get close to the amount of capacity
VL can offer. Frankly, even if we had it for VL no one would buy it.

No argument from me on the scheduled MAC front, except to the extent
that in UL it needs to come with good interference mitigation (not
talking about self-inflicted interference) techniques to make it useful.

RE: [WISPA] vendor specs -- Jon

2006-09-25 Thread Patrick Leary
For sure I am no expert there. Plenty of skilled Canopy users here and I
believe to a WISP here each one that is scaled uses the GPS sync. I
leave it to them to chime in. Some already have, like Jon L., Rick S.,
Gino,  Mike B.

I just know we get no requests for it from VL users an there would be
little benefit. The system simply does not require it. I mean, we only
need 3 sectors of 20MHz to net out over 90mbps of capacity. And then
there is the 10MHz channel options. So there are plenty of channels to
work with. Also, our system uses an intelligent ATPC and cell distance
learning so the gear isn't driving power beyond what it needs to sustain
links at whatever mod level the operator selects.

Well, so far as we can tell the only thing that can kill canopy, IS CANOPY.
We have put it up against WaveRider, Alvarion, and 802.11b. They all fell of
the face of the earth. 

We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE and more
on the way. (I realize there are many people bigger than us.)

We use a mix of MTI Omni's, MTI or Tiltek 120deg Sectors (MTI for Horizontal
and Tiltek for Vertical) and integrated 60deg sectors (I really wish someone
would come out with a descent H-pol as I don't like the integrated antenna)
with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have speed of
light issues from tower to tower.

Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, yes. You
just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this mean I
recommend it, NO.

Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so many AP's in
a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At least we know
there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 900 that
will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor was
lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a long ways.
It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

YMMV.

Hi,

First, the spec sheet on Motorola's website says -86 RSSI.

What happens when you have more than 3 towers outside of the 8 mile 
range of GPS sync? The 2.4ghz signal will definately travel that far, 
causing self-interference, correct?

Hi,

I'd like to go back to the specs on different radios just so I can 
compare for myself...


Trango 2.4ghz:
5Mbps auto ratio
8 non-overlapping channels
10mhz spectrum per channel
-90 Receive level
15 mile range (without a grid)
External connector and dual-pol integrated antenna
$879 AP (WISP price)
$479 SU (WISP price)

Canopy 2.4ghz (regular):
7Mbps fixed ratio
3 non-overlapping channels
20mhz spectrum per channel
-86 Receive level


2.4 canopy has a -89 receive level


5 mile range (without a dish)
$902 AP (reseller price online)
$490 SU (reseller price online)


I am guessing your quoting single prices here.  Now that maybe viable 
for this discussion but realistically if a WISP is not financially 
able to purchase in 25 packs they likely are very underfunded.  So 
that the information is available a 25 pack of the Classic 2.4 ghz 
Canopy units is $6709 so if you break that down to single price that 
is about $269ea + $50 for reflector for a total of $319ea.  
http://www.doubleradius.com   It is possible to get them cheaper then 
this but you will have to deal with co-op's or ebay.com
Also I would never install a unit with a 60* pattern (Trango or 
Canopy).  Just include the$50 for a reflector or stinger from 
http://www.wirelessbehive.com





Based on the information from Mike, I could not use Canopy. In 
several areas, I have 4-5 towers located within 5 miles of each 
other how do I do that with Canopy? With Trango, I use a 
different channel for the sector pointing toward another tower 
(frequency planning and coordination is very important) and 
everything works great. Is there a solution for this with Canopy?


This is where GPS sync comes in.  You can point two different tower 
locations on the same frequency at each other and they will not 
interfere with each other.  This is how it is possible to do a 6 AP 
cluster on one tower with only 3 non overlapping channels.




Also, by using only a 10mhz spectrum per channel, Trango's channel 1 
and channel 8 are actually outside the reach of Canopy and 802.11 
(for the most part) and thus can almost always be used in a noisy 
environment.


Remember with Canopy you generally don't have to avoid interference.  
Find the cleanest channel and 90% of the time you will be the few db 
louder then the noise that you need to make a viable link.

We have 16 tower sites deployed, all 900Mhz and 2.4, over 1000 CPE 
and more

on the way. (I realize there are many people bigger than us.)

We use a mix of MTI Omni's, MTI or Tiltek 120deg Sectors (MTI for 
Horizontal
and Tiltek for Vertical) and integrated 60deg sectors (I really wish 
someone
would come out with a descent H-pol as I don't like the integrated 
antenna)

with 900. Cyclone Omni's or 120deg sectors on 2.4.

Here is what I have found with GPS Sourced Sync vs. Generate Sync:

If you want channel reuse you need GPS sourced sync.
If you have a tower more than 8 miles away, you need to use different
channels no matter what, even with GPS sourced sync you still have 
speed of

light issues from tower to tower.

Can you Generate sync and deploy multiple AP's in a given area, yes. 
You

just need to make sure you have Frequency separation. Does this mean I
recommend it, NO.

Also even with every site GPS Synced, you still can only put so many 
AP's in
a given area be for you need to go to a different polarity. At least 
we know

there will never be another 900Mhz based ISP in one of our towns.

Also on a side note, I have never found a problem with 2.4, it is 
900 that

will give you problems, it just carries so far. If the noise floor was
lower, and Canopy could run at -90 we would have coverage for a long 
ways.

It seems like we can always pick up a AP at -80.

YMMV.

of any scale that did not require GPS.

  


I'd be interested in further explanation on this topic. We have some 
Canopy pmp and haven't found the lack of GPS

The timing or range is a configurable setting in canopy, you set them at 
20 miles and the AP's as far as 20 miles and under will all be in sync. 
If you have 2 AP past 20 miles but LOS to each other, you can calulate 
to see if the RSSI on the AP's is close to the reciever sensitivity(or 
noise floor) of either AP. If it is above the sensitivity or noise, that 
AP could cause small amount of extra interference(self interference) but 
again this is very rare until you get to the 900MHz freq. In that 
scenario canopy advertises 40 miles LOS(no noise), so that should give 
you an idea of how much self interference may be occuring in 
un-syncronized networks.

Hi,

First, the spec sheet on Motorola's website says -86 RSSI.

What happens when you have more than 3 towers outside of the 8 mile 
range of GPS sync? The 2.4ghz signal will definately travel that far, 
causing self-interference, correct?

Hey Patrick, GPS...there's many reasons and it's not a canopy vs 
alvarion debate from my standpoint, more so a scheduled mac(canopy, 
wimax, 3G...) vs unscheduled(wifi, VL, currently Trango). I'd predict 
that as wisp education progresses, they will realize the power of 
scheduled mac and GPS support. By then maybe the rest of the BreezeMAX 
code will have made way to the VL engineers and everyone can be happy :-)

Jon,

Why is that the case? You really think GPS on Canopy is some cool
feature? Canopy must have GPS to function. Without it, it kills itself.
It is all to prevent self-inflicted interference (remember, Canopy does
not even have ATPC) and to allow for channel re-use. Other systems, like
VL, do not need it. It provides far more capacity than Canopy, so it
does not need to re-use channels and with basic channel planning you
don't have issues with self-interference.
