Subject: Re: [WISPA] Anyone mixing fiber with your wireless deployments?

We've got a few customers that are mainly fiber carriers and use wireless to extend off that.  The fiber business is a whole differnet animal.  It can be good, but requires that you really understand what business you're getting into.  Especially if you are leasing capacity to other carriers, the audit requirements can get fairly hefty.  Most of the fiber folks I know of use the fiber as the primary backhaul for their wireless system and for direct drops into the biggest customers.  In one example a school disctict actaully paid for the installation of the fiber to hit all their schools (over 100 miles) but the WISP still owned it and was able to add additional strands for a little extra $.  But the school ended picking up 90%+ of the total cost.  Now that makes the ROI look much better.

Marlon, how would you have done the ethernet?  I thought you were 
restricted to basically 300 feet of ethernet without a 
switch/router/booster every 300 feet or so, or am I missing something?  
I have pole rights in town a $1/pole/yr so I'm trying to find an 
affordable use of them.

We use dry copper, wireless, fiber and dsl for backhaul.  I've not 
built my own fiber yet.  I'm sure the day is coming though.

I really screwed up a few years ago.  The town had the sidewalks all 
out down town.  I should have found the money and put some conduit in 
at that time.  I could have ethernet or fiber connections to all of 
the down town businesses today!  sigh

I am looking to talk with someone that has laid some fiber to complement
their wireless operations.  We have a couple of leads we are looking at
making some short hop backbones between towers, and having the cities 
get
involved as a customer of fiber, and hopefully it will pay for the 
venture.

On or off list replys welcome.

Thanks

Mike
