I like Tom's idea. Just replace one site, with other gear. Trango, 802.11 (if it's a site with no 15 mile shots) And take the old CPEs down and re use them as you hook up people to the other Karlnet sites. I think this is the least disruptive. You would be only messing with one site.

And no, Trango will not work with you current gear, but you know that.  :)

What Trango units attach to my existing antennas?  I thought Trango used
integrated antennas...

My advise, is to buy Trango, and start replacing one of your cells sites, and then the pulled units you can then use at your turbo cell sites.

Subject: [WISPA] Looking fora new system


Hi all,

Well, with YDI/Terrorbeam closing the Karlnet office in Ohio, I think I
need to find a replacement for TurboCell systems..

My requirements for a replacement .....

1) must use the same 2.4GHz antennas and amps I currently have installed.

2) compatible with many different boards for CPE and AP

3) polling or token based.  No hidden node issues.

4) tolerant of a wide spread in snr levels between clients.

4) low cost.... (yeah, right!)

I am not interested in 'all in one systems' where I have no ability to
mix n' match antenna's and such.

So far, I have heard a little about Netstream, (from MikroTik), and
about StarOS.

Netstream seems to offer polling and long range PtMP.  However, having
to get new licenses every year is annoying.

StarOS offers up to 10 non over lapping channels in the 2.4GHz band.
This could be useful in cleaning up interference issues at some towers.

I lean toward Netstream because I have had good luck with my Mikrotik
routers that are currently in service, but I am more interested in
finding something that will last.  I am also concerned about being left
high and dry as ydi/terabeam just did to me and many others.

Anyone out there using one or both of these systems?  How about another
system meeting these requirements that I don't know about?

Thoughts?
