    Default Setting up a WISP network (Doing it right the first time)

    Hi!


    I'm new to Star-OS, so I was looking for a guide but found non. So I started the thread "Setting up a WISP network (Doing it right the first time)".
    Instead of inventing a senario, I chose the network I'm about to build.

    1. The network needs a backbone with failover AP/internet.
    2. High performance.
    3. It needs to handle normal and HotSpot subscribers.
    - using 802.11a for permanent subscribers and 802.11g to HotSpot customers.
    4. It needs to be easy to maintain and expand.
    5. Powerfull monitoring with alarms when failiure.

    The prosess would be something like this:

    a) Howto find and simulate the points needed to build the network.
    b) Howto choose the right equipment.
    c) What to when you recive the equipment.
    d) Howto configure the equipment.
    e) Howto install the equipment (se the other guides in the Best Practice section).
    f) Howto optimize you're network performance and stability.
    g) Howto monitor and keep you're network in shape.


    Hope this will be a guide usefull for other newbees

    a) Howto find and simulate the points needed to build the network.
    ***Radio Mobile
    b) Howto choose the right equipment.
    ***In my experience, the right equipment is dependant on how much you want to do your self, and how flexible you need to be - be ready to do lots of reading regardless what you pick
    c) What to when you recive the equipment.
    ***Test all equipment, try and find a realistic testing environment
    d) Howto configure the equipment.
    ***Be prepared to read
    e) Howto install the equipment (se the other guides in the Best Practice section).
    ***2 skills collide for wisp's to do well, strong knowledge of radio communications, and equipment (antenna's), and solid understanding of networking, and net administration
    f) Howto optimize you're network performance and stability.
    ***VNC has come out with a few tools that help, and there are other linux/windows tools that help (sometimes $$$) but solid understanding of networking will help hugely here regardless of tools. Majority of issues I have are resolved using ping, trace, and the staros tools
    g) Howto monitor and keep you're network in shape.
    ***same same
