Those happen to be wasp nests, if I'm not mistaken... I'm assuming the only thing he could get out of them are dozens of painful stings :)

Re: NOT TO DO. Weird instalations?

Mon Jul 27, 2009 2:50 pm

This is one ISP at one residetntial location in Varna, Bulgaria. They told us this sh!t is because they are now investing everything in the new optic network and these will be replaced soon, but how soon? Not soon enough for sure.:

Ontop of the next building the switch is exposed to rain etc:
Image

They did not secure the cable that goes from otuside the building, over a nasty edge, into the client's balcony, so he had to do it himself, after his service was down due to wind action on that cable versus the edge, several times:
Image

The cable geos to this busted box.
Image Image Image

You can see a switch with a plastic case, the main link goes into that one, from that main link two wires are PoE that is transferred to proper DC via the two small PCBs... The nasty thing here is 1. crimping/plugs 2. The box is not locked, so links were down due to thief actions several times.. What lowlife dumbass will risk his life - possibly tripping over a wire on the roof in the middle of the night to steal a couple of fifth-hand smelly old 100Mbit switches all taped with ducktape? More than once LOL :D

The client had ping losses due to cheap RJ45 plugs. When weather gets cold, the metal pieces that make contact get smaller and contact is lost, amonsgst other similar problems. + Vibrations from wind etc. ... it's bad folks.

Conclusion: Don't install equpment and cables on the outside of buildings.

I'm publishing these pictures as a warning to others to remind you all that attention to detail is important.

When our technician (who no longer works for us) fitted the bottom antenna, he dropped one spring washer. He was too lazy to climb down the ladder to pick it up, so he just tightened the nuts.

The Cape Town winds came and started shaking the antennas. The one spot where there was no spring washer had no way to absorb the stresses and the result was metal fatigue.

Not sure if Steve's got the same problem in the USA, but here in Southern Africa we have a specific type of ant that seems drawn to electronics.

Strange, I know, but true.

A couple of times now we've had client computers that die for no reason. When we open them up we find that a colony of ants has moved in.

Hi,

is impressive but the RB532 NIC is working fine.. ¬¬u

This was an old installation and this was the connector connected to the RJ45 female in the box. I don't know why but this board is working without problems (with new wires/connectors).

It seams like the plastic RJ45 female stoped the volts.. xD Kamikaze RJ45 female.

The poe and 24V dead too.

Perhaps normis will talk us about the nice 532 surge protector..

RB532 is a very hardy board.

Last week I saw a tech accidently plug a 48V PSU in while the jumper was set to 12V. He pulled it as soon as we realised his mistake, put the 12V PSU in and the board started.

Are you sure? The connector on the picture is melted, ruined for good, burnt, destroyed, its smokeeennn - heat, energy, smoke - this MUST have affected the port it was plugged in!!!! Maybe if you look at the port you will see traces of smoke etc - so you should check the resistance of that port : (point A) cable->plug->port->pcb(point B) check resistance from point A to point B :)

This Board is a repeater, I don't need comunication over the RJ45. The PoE works fine.. : P!

But.. the connector is working "fine" because I connected my laptop and winbox works fine too.

The board port is OK but the RJ45 female was broken. We changed the ethernet wire too.

Did you take that picture? Was it intentionally installed that way, or did a pole just fall down? Have any more details?

Those two big buckets are to catch the water from the air conditioner. Notice they balance right above the company servers. Good design? :-?

Authorities not removing the cables allowed for enormous speeds for almost free. So. At least Bulgaria is doing fine, everyone is connected. But even here - there are not such oveburdened lamp posts. We don't want any citizen to get hurt by falling stuff, now, do we.

I worked at a ISP not too long ago. One of the shots they setup for a customer (older employee who left before I ever got there) made a funny install.

We got a call from someone because their internet was no longer working. After sending someone onsite we found out that a old truck moved and after that they no longer had internet. We found out after a bit of inspection that the shot was bounced off the truck and into our tower. When the truck moved (years later) they lost connection.

The famous bounce shot...

Whats happens when a custoner needs to make a "joint"?

Fri Jul 23, 2010 11:58 am

Suddenly Internet doesn't work and the fun thing is that "nobody has touch anything".

The Mikrotik CPE was running and was wirelessly connected. The "joint" worked fine as PoE with no ethernet communication. It is the miracle of 802.3af when You make a short in the same color wires.

PS: It was all into a plastic bag, all waterproof.

I'm getting really annoyed that you all keep posting *only* photos of *my* installations.

Also, how come you know where they all are around the world ? Are you MI5 ?

Lastly, i left my new shoes in the shoebox, so if you could lift up the battery and get the shoes, and send them to me, i'd appreciate it.

This guy seems to have a fear of cable ties / general neatness. He also leaves his packing material and other junk on the ground and doesn't appear to know the first thing about the laws of RF.

IMG_1790 (Medium).JPG
Then, just to add insult to injury, they run UTP / PoE up the tower causing interference with VHF, UHF and ISM frequencies.

WiFi generally is done badly by people who need it to work to make money.

There are very very few who can afford to 'do it properly'.

There is a much bigger number of people who can buy some stuff and slap it on a tower.

Even when the physical links are 100% wonderful, there is an even smaller number of people/organisations who can do the QoS so customers get what they expect (never mind what they want).

It's like the Wild Wild West IMHO, and there *is* Gold in Them Thar Hills.

Yeeehaw !

If you desperately need to power switch in a fast-developing 'crapnet', you can do it by ignoring health and life hazards as well.
I know an operator, that could fill this thread easily just with pictures from 3 houses...
Sadly, the price for internet is a reasonable factor to cheap-ass customers.
More coming...

"That is a tragedy waiting for its time."

Am I crazy or is that 220 mains spliced somewhere, all sitting on nicely seasoned timber?

I have replaced much safer installs at my own cost just so I could sleep at night.

Well, you can easily bite off psu cable with teeth and connect it without instruments, ensuring that only 12v or so go through your cat5, but no - some people just have to go funny ways. I know, that the other end goes to clients apartment. And what if the client gets curious?...

In Bulgaria these are called "satellites", not receivers or antennas.

I thought this thread was about posting other mistakes, not your own. Your own installs shuld be perfect! Learn from other mistakes, and don't make them yourself.

Wow, the photo on the first post is really radical. I wonder what is up with the one who installed this on that cubicle. If the power source was coming from that side of the room, then maybe he did not put the toilet on that side. Or better yet, he should have installed racks to place the hardware on. They are just to damn expensive to just dip on toilet water in case they accidentally fall down. Good thinking.

Some of my competition never cease to amaze me - for their stupidity.

This guy bought an expensive enclosure. He then bought an expensive plate to mount the board on. He then went to the trouble of marking out the holes to mount the risers in exactly the right places, but he wasn't bothered to secure the UFL connector with some insulation tape. Even better than that, it seems he lost 3 of the 4 machine screws needed to mount the board. Result: He used a plastic bag to insulate the board :shock:

No wonder he has one client less...

lol, we only had this up for a couple hours while we did some testing. Our zip ties were to big so we started pulling random things out of the car to make the zip tie fit. But you didn't notice the 433 indoor case duct taped to the bottom of the sector. By the time we had it up it was so damn funny I had to post it.

I almost sprayed tea all over the monitor when I saw those pictures.

I've done some "field expedient" engineering in my time, but that is way out there.

Why can't they bury some tubes for optic cables etc? Digging technology, construction and organizational procedures exist and should be cheaper now.

It's never a good idea to judge others by the way we see things.

You will only understand why they have such a love for overhead cable once you've been to South Asia.

I don't exactly judge others. I am just asking a question which any engineer can ask because it concerns building of networks. What solution applies around the world can be easily applied where you live as well. This is why I kindly request some insight. I don't mean to disrespect.

When nobody controls who puts wires where, when anyone can take your wires, when there is no free wireless spectrum, when it's not possible to put wires in the ground - then you get something like this. You must see the traffic in the streets to get the atmosphere :)

Some people are ignorant and don't have design and planning about the equipments. Preliminary they don't want to spend much money but after a certain period they start suffering which costs more $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

They need to shift these equipments to a good location and have proper design to avoid future occurrence.

Here's one I replaced not long ago... This yellow wire is the internet connection feeding an apartment complex - it went into the building, into a router, and the yellow wire is the primary connection going to a series of routers (not access points - routers) mounted throughout the ceiling. I didn't open a cover or unscrew the terminals - that's exactly as I found them, fully exposed.
Photo Oct 10, 12 25 28 PM.jpg
I'm not sure why they didn't go around the electric box - instead they just broke out of the conduit and went directly behind the panel
Photo Oct 10, 12 24 53 PM.jpg
Then came out the top and went back into conduit and up into the attic.

In the attic were a series of these shelves holding up routers - with electricity piped to each one. Many had a kludge of external high-gain omni and directional antennas.
Photo Oct 10, 11 52 50 AM.jpg
Photo Oct 10, 11 54 20 AM.jpg
Unfortunately, because they were routers, some were routing and/or handing out conflicting DHCP addresses on the same network. A scan of AP's showed about 18 depending on where you stood - noise was through the roof, and reliability was in the toilet. When they locked up (once or twice a day) the apartment manager couldn't get to the AP's in the attic, so he had a process of resetting breakers he'd follow that would reset the whole system.

This is just one of the closets where there were AP's, a computer that I never even turned on - just ewasted; and an omni.

Customer had a power outage. Had never seen their network cabinets before. Went up stairs and had a look. This is what I found. No documentation or labels (the labels you see mean nothing). Took two hours to fix a fault (bad cable causing Cisco switch to shut a port down).

Again

the core issue is that equipment is very cheap nowadays ... Installation of equipment is extreme expensive - so where is the client who pays the money for installation costs?

do not forget! to ever troubleshoot an issue - would pay the money easy for proper installation - though - that's another budget so we are fine.. you think.. and client pays anyway...

sorry, but sad to see so many bad examples.

My company bought a tower from another company. As the RF engineer I was charged with taking inventory of the site and equipment. There was a wireless ISP already on the site when I got there. I took the following pictures of what I found.

Image
photo hosting sites
Image
how to screen capture
Image
picture hosting
Image
image hosting over 10mb
Image
screen shot windows
Image
image hosting free no registration
Image
image sharing

It is our company policy to keep everything neat and tidy. The ISP had already been given notice that they would have a clean up their mess and they had failed to do so. So I called my boss and asked him what he wanted me to do. He told me to remove the equipment from the building and that he would call the ISP and let them know that they were being evicted from the tower.
By the time they arrived at the site their equipment was sitting outside in a pile. Words were exchanged and I had to call the sheriff to the site to have the persons from the ISP escorted off the property. The building is no longer there. Neither is the ISP.

no, they are just staging them for your amusement.

I find myself in many of the pictures due to limited budget/possibilities to mount equipment.

I saw the 13A plugs and figured it had to be an ex British colony or protectorate. Suspected it was Zimbabwe when I saw the lattice mast.

It is nice to sell a rack enclosure, just to stuff equipment into it like garbage.
If the NAS does not fit on top of the PC, it will be okay to turn it 90 degrees.

Another good find, an offset antenna with an "all purpose plastic connector box" used instead of a head.
Bandwidth reaches a lightning fast 1 Mbit/sec when the weather is fine.

No, but I don't know for sure who did the installation, so no names. :)
This is a new client of ours, who had very low standards in IT before realizing it hurts the business.
We literally find new kludges every day.

Like this nice, twinned power cable. Having everyting on an UPS is a good thing, right?

Soldering wires from back of the pcb conducts better and reduces number of connectors used. But this is not so bad if someone wants to keep warranty. Worse are the holes without fastening cables.

Problem was, that there wasn't possibility for soldering, otherwise I would do it better way ;)
The holes were covered later :)

about concrete-reinforcing of steel tubes for cabling: truly russian-style of networking, where not only dozersfrequently ruin copper and fiber cables, but dog-sized rodents pose serious threat both for equimpment and humans.

If it is finally on both sides it could work as only 4 wires are used for 100MbitFD Ethernet.

I have done this a couple of times, when there was 1 cable run available and 2 connections needed on 100Mbps.
And it works flawless.
