[WISPA] procera or similiar product

So the last booth I visited at Wispa in Vegas was the Procera booth. I am hooked and want to learn more, but at $17k a pop it’s a little hard to swallow, as I would need to purchase 4 of them for my current locations that I serve. Are there any other solution I can look for to do similar functions that may be more cost effective?

 

I am also a little leery at the fact that I have left them 2 voice mail messages as well as sent an email from earlier this week with no return call. So that’s a concern if it takes a while to get sales support if tech support would be any different. So I was wanting some feed back from some actual users of their product or other similar products.

 

Thanks

Heith

[WISPA] small 24GHz radio

Does anybody know of a 24GHz radio that is smaller than 1’?

It doesn’t have to go very far, but we are wanting 24GHz.

[WISPA] hopper wifi

I have 2 partners that deal with dish network. One of them was having real weird issues with his connection at his home/office using a ubnt router when everything looked good. I sent him a Tik router and 2 unifi APs to clean up his mess of wifi gear. Everything was working good then went to hell. I logged into his router and could see his Hopper MAC address pulling several addresses under ARP. He didn’t want to trouble shoot so he just unplugged the hopper.

 

A different partner who has always used a tik called me yesterday and his router was down. This has happened a few times over the last month. He did a reboot and came back up. While looking at his arp table I noticed the same arp issue with his hopper.

 

I had a customer call today using ubnt router. He said he was connected but no internet. Radio looked good. Logged into router and I could see he had a Hopper as well. I did a remote reboot and it cleared up.

 

I don’t have Sat TV so I have never seen a Hopper. Almost looks like WDS issue. On the ubnt router of course the arp table is not as active on tik so I don’t know if it was doing the same thing. Would DHCP reservation help, on the tik, or is there something else I should be looking for on the Hopper?

 

Thanks

Heith

[WISPA Announcements] Association Management Committee Changes

Dear Members,

I have been appointed the new Chairperson for the Association Management 
Committee (AMC).  The role of this committee is to review all contracts 
for employees and contractors of WISPA and recommend the contract 
proposals as is or recommend modifications.  I would like to take this 
opportunity to announce that I will be restructuring this committee and 
the role it plays in WISPA affairs.

It's always been my opinion that the AMC pretty much rubber stamps 
whatever the board members say with no real knowledge of issues we've 
had with the employees or contractors. The purpose of the committee is 
for the membership to double check the board's actions with the opinion 
from the Membership.  I'm not saying the board makes incorrect decisions 
but having guidance and a fresh set of eyes from the membership is very 
important to your board.

Therefore I am taking four immediate actions:
1) I am removing all Board Members except myself and the President of 
WISPA from the AMC list
2) I am asking any current member who wishes to reapply to email me as 
soon as possible as this request is also going to the membership list
3) All applicants will have to sign a legally enforced Confidentiality 
Agreement not to share committee information with anyone
4) Committee Members will be added by name to WISPA's Errors and 
Omissions insurance policy to protect you against legal retaliation from 
employee/contractors

I will accept 10 total applicants and we will meet every other month 
except when a contract is up for renewal.  If chosen you will be advised 
of all board action to an employee/contractor, and President (who serves 
as the board representative to employees and contractors) report 
including disciplinary actions or change in duties.

Please send applications to: forbes <at> wispa.org

Thank you,
Forbes Mercy
WISPA Chair: AMC, Promotions, Disaster Services
President of WECAT, Board of Directors WISPA

Re: [WISPA] Bid on the pink bibs

Congrats to Dave Giles for winning the bibs.  He makes them look great!

 

There were a number of Vendors as well as WISPs that agreed to match this winning bid of $251.  I have sent emails to the ones that I had on the list giving them the link to donate directly to the NBCF.  If you were one of the folks that agreed to match the bid and didn't just get an email from me, please contact me off-list so I don't miss anyone.

 

All donations are tax deductable and go directly to the NBCF.  They have told me that these proceeds will go to help fund the free mammography program.

It's not too late to help.  If you would like to match Dave on the $251 that's great but any donation will help.  Below is the link to the donation page where you can see the total and make a donation if you would like to.

It was great seeing all the pink on Thursday. 

 

Thx,

[WISPA] 5GHz CPE Install Information

1st: I had thread view on and I am a failure that doesn't now how to reply to the thread in that view. It has since been changed to the normal "send all messages" format.

2nd: Thanks for the quick and detailed reply Chris!

Do you or anyone else on the list have a handy cheat sheet of pricing for what you might do for that 60 - 100 ft tower at a customers house regarding service? Are you talking some kind of TV antenna tower or another type of tower?

Being that you offer service on the other bands (900 and 2.4) do you have any problems procuring the gear for those still?

Thanks in advance, Tim

[WISPA] 5GHz CPE Install Information

I am doing a lot of research as well as a lab built 5GHz test system for a point to multi-point build. It seems everything is going the way of 5GHz and with that I have a fair amount of concern regarding getting a definite clear line of site from a customer to a tower offering them service. Specifically I am struggling with what others are doing on the customer side.

The area I am looking to build out with 5GHz would be pretty typical farmland. The vast majority of it is wide open but around the houses people do have a fair amount of trees to create wind blocks and just physical separation from the fields.

If the customer has an obstruction like trees or other rooftops that might block a signal do you put up your own small tower to get them service? Do you not try to service them?

What type of equipment do you use to actually do the installation then? Do you generally say because of xyz reason you need a tower and we do it for you but it will be a one time fee of x or a monthly fee of y?

Thanks in advance, Tim
