[WISPA] Urging You to Vote for Your WISPA Board of Directors

Membership:

 

Not only is it important to exercise your right to vote for the next president of the United States, but it is also important to vote for your next WISPA Board of Directors (BoD).  Voting begins on Tuesday July 19th at 9 AM EST.

 

I would ask that you strongly consider voting for me as one of the BoD.  What I can bring to the board is over 20 years of experience as one of the founders of a successful ISP.  I have been directly involved with every aspect of the company including IT management, financial officer, tower installation, safety, consulting, security, customer support, acquisitions, and regulatory compliance.  WISPA is an excellent organization and has the ability to help each of our companies become more successful through lobbying, collaboration, and group discounts.  I would like to be a member of this team in order to serve you and help you meet your yearly goals.

 

Should I be elected, I promise to give WISPA my very best and to build upon the success of our past leadership and most importantly to be a voice for our membership.

 

I urge you to vote and ask you to consider voting for me to be one of the WISPA BoD.

 

Thank you for your consideration!

[WISPA] DC UPS (and Solar?) Setup.

Hi,

So historically we've been a mostly AC setup, but I'm trying to figure 
out a DC setup for some of our smaller sites, and hopefully a solar 
setup as well. I'm new to all of this though so I'm trying to see if 
anyone has any written guides or part lists. Basic goal is to power an 
airfiber or equivalent and A few Canopy or Ubnt APs.

Here's what I've been looking at so far:

48v DC power supply
Traco TSP-BCMU360
Packetflux Site monitor 2 base
Packetflux SiteMonitor 6 Channel Switch Closure Input
Neotonix DC switch

This seems to work okay, the TSP-BCMU360 charges and monitors the 
battery and the Packetflux Sitemonitor provides a network connection to 
monitor the status.

Issues so far:

I'm running the site monitor off the BCMU, but this means that it's 
input power is 48v, I want to monitor the voltage of the battery, but 
that's just 12v and I don't think I can have different voltages plugged 
into the two inputs to the site monitor. Another option would be to have 
the site monitor powered off the batteries directly, but that seems bad...

Is the packetflux stuff the best solution for this, or is there another 
web enabling option? Seem pretty good so far, but I'm not even sure what 
the other options are.

The other issue is I have no idea what I should be using for 
breaker/fuses for the equipment. A suggested list of DIN mountable stuff 
I should have would be super useful if someone has it on hand. Also who 
to order this stuff from.

The other thing I would like to try is some kind of solar setup. Again 
it need to be monitored remotely. Power draw would be as low as I could 
manage. This is Oregon, so not lots of snow, but there are a lot of 
cloudy days. Packetflux makes several items that integrate with Morning 
Star controllers. It that a good way to go? Something like a TS-MPPT-30?

Batteries are another thing. I'm also very curious if Lithium ion 
batteries are feasible yet. This would need a different charger but it 
would save a TON of space and maybe even be cost effective given the 
smaller enclosure size that would be possible.

Then there is the issue of what solar panels to buy.

If anyone has any thoughts, comments, links, documents, etc. I'd really 
appreciate it.

Thanks,
Duncan

[WISPA] FM Radio interference

I have an existing tower that has a FM transmitter on it.  I believe they are just under 10,000 Watts.
Since we have been one that tower, I could never link up Ethernet that runs up the tower to the equipment on the bottom at 100BT.  I've tried ferrite rings on both ends, all cables are shielded and grounded.  Always had to go to 10BT to get a link. 

I moved our radios 35 feet away from the bottom their antennas and still cannot link at 100BT.

The new radios require 1000BT too use them to full advantage.  Ideas?

I'm considering conduit all the way up the tower.  I don't want to put switches at the top.

[WISPA] Meanwell DIn rail power supplies

I know this has been covered a bazillion times but i couldn't find the threads.

I don't need UPS capability. Was there a specific Meanwell line to watch out for?

Thank You,

Re: [WISPA] DNS Name Resolver for WISP

Don't use any DNS resolvers not on your own network.

I know cira.ca has a service for ISPs. If you need a specific contact there let me know, off-list.

What dns name solvers do you use to hand out to your customers via DHCP and why? Today we just hand out Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as a name resolvers.

However if we handed out OpenDNS's IPs instead of googles, and provided a gateway, then that would remove that step of the client having to enter opendns IPs into their router right?Â

Does OpenDNS have a service for ISP's? That gives us insight as to where traffic on our network is heading based dns lookups? I know about Netflow etc, but doing this though DNS seems like a cool option as well. We wouldn't want to block anything as an ISP, but it would be useful to know the top visited site by our customers is facebook.com for example.

If not OpenDNS, then is there some other hosted DNS service for ISP's?Â
