Please excuse the following shameless self-promotion however, it's my
"mission" to try to be helpful therefore I respectfully offer the
I think you'll find my book helpful:
or my workshops:
or my telephone consulting or on-site consulting.
You're always welcome to phone or email me and if I can answer your
questions in 15 or 20 (or even 23) minutes, there's no charge.
I'm sure you can also pick up some excellent ideas (and pick some very
knowledgable brains) by attending a few carefully selected workshops at
quality broadband shows like WISPNOG.
With a good grasp of how to calculate a link budget, how to interpret
those sometimes incomplete vendor specifications, and how to avoid the
common installation-process pitfalls, you'll be able to write up a
design and installation procedure that should work pretty well for your
company, going forward.

I know we keep working on our processes to improve the installation of
our links. We still have a "burn-in" period after installations because
our processes aren't yet 100%. I think it would be great if we could
together work up a documented procedure to ensure better wireline
reliability of wireless links.

Well engineered links with proper installation, lightning protection,
battery backup and good gear will be just as reliable (if not more) as
any land line system in my opinion. The rub is that many wireless
links are poorly engineered, bad gear and not installed well. Garbage
in...garbage out. I am just as guilty as anyone else. I am fixing that
though. I have wireless links that are getting to be as reliable as
wired ones. I will be "better than wired" reliably here in a year. The
cost factor puts wireless well ahead of any risk/reward or value
comparisons to other broadband platforms. Wireless will be the clear
winner in the end if we all learn to do it right and buy good gear.
