Mikrotik WISPs: Where?

Hi!

In Mikrotik Wikipedia page is told that Routerboards are "widely used by wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) in the Czech Republic".

I'm doing a sustained work about Mikrotik/Routerboard utilization viability and I need references that sustain that RouterOS/Routerboards are used by professional and amateur WISPs. Can anyone please give me the desired information?

Regards,

Rodrigo S.

You need information only for the Czech Republic or we can write something for other countries.. ?

Sorry, for every country.

Every serious information I may refer in my paper. It's preferable from a professional WISP than from an local amateur WISP.

Rodrigo

In the USA, BAMnet Corporation has outdoor networks covering several towns in both New Jersey and Florida using MikroTik hardware
exclusively.

I hope that helps.

Post #4, middle of the second paragraph.

I know it isn't a reference to a specific 'professional WISP', but acknowleges a major presence...

My understanding is that MT has a very large customer population in Europe. Have you asked them for potential reference customers?

do the math

2000 clients, suppose 40 clients by sectorial ptmp AP = 50 AP

suppose 3 AP per tower = 16 or 17 towers

suppose each tower serving 1 square kilometer = 16-17 square kilometers of service area

now you have to interconnect each tower to your core network using fiber or a ptp link etc

Hi!

since 2012 we are running a WISP in the Netherlands and use 99% MikroTik in our network, growing to 8 POP's this year and still growing where the demand is.

Running VOIP, IPTV and Internet (Max 30/30Mbps) without issues..

We got MT certified in 2013 and this year managed to get Trainer status (1st in BeNeLux!) and will start giving MTCNA and MTCWE courses soon + doing some MikroTik consulting.

It is not a WISP but free hotspots.

Hotspots in Nova Gorica have long history as the first point was operational in 2003. First it started as an experiment in local students club but after that the network was expanded to other organization, bars and restaurants around Nova Gorica. First the network was called kiWi-Fi network but after we decided to rename it to wlan.novagorica.eu as it is based in Nova Gorica.

Our hotspots broadcast SSID: wlan.novagorica.eu

Most of them is MikroTik.

The WISP that serves my family's home on the Central Coast of California is a Mikrotik shop: http://www.surfnetusa.com/

That said, the tech who did the installation claimed he wasn't familiar with our gateway device. It's a hAP AC. Slightly scary. (I wasn't present for the install or I would have inquired further.) The AP they put up on the roof is a QRT 2, and most, if not all, of the routers along the way as well as their core router in San Luis Obispo, are MT.

Most of them is MikroTik.
Similarly in Greece there are many many Wireless Community Networks with the biggest one being AWMN - Athens Wireless Metropolitan Network. http://www.awmn.net
It consists of hundreds of backbone nodes running BGP (each node is a separate AS in BGP) and thousands of clients.
90% of the network is based on MikroTik since 2005. It used to be mainly x86 PCs but now most of the nodes moved to routerboards since they last much longer, can handle the Greek summers better, use less power (plus you don't need to send 220v to the roofs) and are generally easier to install and manage.
In terms of antennas, the majority of the network uses parabolic dishes (80+cm diameter) with custom made 5GHz feeders for point to point links and omnis or sectors for access points (for statically connected clients or hotspot users).

AWMN has been able to connect wirelessly with other communities so the network spans from Athens (central Greece) all the way to Kefalonia (western Greece) and Evoia (north of Athens) covering hundreds of square kilometers. And it's all community run/managed with no real central authority or ownership :)

I am a WISP and an ISP and a Fiber-to-the-home provider.

As for the WISP part, I operate 200 APs in North Idaho and near-by Washington (kinda in the areas of Coeur d'Alene Idaho & Spokane Washington) . We have between 600 to 1000 Microwave clients. On Average, the wireless portion of my network draws around 1/2 gig of sustained bandwidth during peak rush-hour-high-demand hours.

All wireless equipment is Mikrotik using NV2. Most Mikrotik networks are 5 GHz, 1x1 , nv2 , N-Only , Horizontal Polarity , 3 to 25 km links. We offer 25 meg to 100 meg wireless accounts using Mikrotiks.

Every last weekend of the month, we disable all bandwidth rate limits for all customers. During this time, all customer (fiber and microwave) networks are wide-open go-as-fast-as-possible. Having a 10-gig Internet connection with thousands of customers running without any speed-limits will definitely but a huge bump in your total bandwidth consumption peak rates. During these weekends, most wireless customers can hit between 50 to 120 meg, and all fiber customers are suddenly all 1-gig accounts each.

I do these last-weekend-of-the-month un-limited-bandwidth periods to help me determine any potential problem areas in the network and to locate any possible points of congestion. Then we fix, upgrade or re-configure any problem areas. This helps to keep a fast running network for all customers month after month and year after year.

If there is a problem discovered during the wide-open unlimited-speed-end-of-month-weekend, then we determine if the problem can be fixed at that moment -or- stop the unlimited weekend speeds and fix in the next couple of business days -or- if we can continue the unlimited speeds end-of-month speeds and fix in the next couple of business days.

All ISPs and WISPs have a certain level of potential bottlenecks and weak areas in their networks. This is why we do the unlimited speeds during the last weekend of the month , so that we can discover potential issues under heavier than normal customer loads.

These special weekends help us determine if any work/upgrades/maintenance needs to be performed on our Internet feed -or- our internal core network -or- on any last-mile network connections to customers.

Also of note --- If/when we get a call from a customer stating that it was very fast over the last weekend and now it is slow (after the special weekend), then we explain the last-weekend-of-the-month and offer up-sell suggestions to the customer to upgrade their account to a faster speed account.

Every last weekend of the month, we disable all bandwidth rate limits for all customers. During this time, all customer (fiber and microwave) networks are wide-open go-as-fast-as-possible. Having a 10-gig Internet connection with thousands of customers running without any speed-limits will definitely but a huge bump in your total bandwidth consumption peak rates. During these weekends, most wireless customers can hit between 50 to 120 meg, and all fiber customers are suddenly all 1-gig accounts each.

That's an excellent idea. I got curious: do You see a huge increase in traffic, beyond the expected? I mean: are the users aware of this "download from heavens" window, and scheduling his activities to match it?

re: ... You see a huge increase in traffic, beyond the expected? ...
lol
- for total Internet bandwidth, on average , I might see a 10 % sustained increase
- for the average customer (with 10 meg or faster accounts) , I may see a 5 % sustained increase
- for the average slowest account we offer customer , I may see a 5 % to 50 % sustained increase
*** The above is the average for ALL customers ***
In general , must customers do not change their Internet bandwidth usage when we do the end-of-the-month wide-open speeds. However, a few customers might bandwidth shoot through the roof - but the average remains at stated above. It is the customers who have bandwidth shooting through the roof that are the ones I want to call me and ask why there were soooo fast - this gives me the opportunity to upsell.

FYI - Although we do the unlimited last-weekend-of-the month , If another ISP/WISP wanted to try the same thing, they don't necessarily need to go full-on unlimited, they could make it 2x or 4x the customer normal purchased bandwidth. This could help prevent the ISP/WISP from over subscribing their networks and could generate customer calls which could then be made into customer upsells to purchase a faster account.

FYI - When we do the unlimited-bandwidth end-of-the-month weekend, I have just 5 mouse-clicks needed to set the new mode -and- after , 5 mouse-clicks to return to normal. I just disable the Captive-Portal bandwidth rate settings on my in-office customer-upstream-gateway servers. I do not re-configure each customer device one-by-one, that would take me forever.

Thanks, that is very interesting. I always wanted to know what people would do with huge amounts of bandwidth. Make sense just a small change: above a given limit it makes not that difference in practical (and home) use.

If there is Interference, there is only one way to get better ccq! Use free channel, is there is no free channel, use better Antennas, but with better Antenna spectrum doesn’t gets better!

They are all over the world. here in the US they are widely used in rural areas where the large cable based ISPs often don't see the cost as being worth their effort. This is where small ISP providers are literally a lifeline for many communities.

IDN if we count as a WISP, we have a fiber backbone and use wireless to the home. We use Juniper and Ruckus on the back and Mikrotik at the customer level, except the gateway at multi unit as Routeros 802.1X port level radius auth is a joke.

Currently just under 1000 Mikrotiks in service

Here is our coverage map.

https://gcet.net/coverage-map/

All residential customer can get 150/150. We currently have a 10g back end connection that will need expanded soon.
All connections are unmetered.

Serving Greenfield MA (pop. 18K) and have many towns in New England and New York interested in us providing service.
We want to be rock solid before expanding further.

Just started a new WISP in Papua New Guinea.

I'd like to say we are 100% mikrotik, but given many reasons we've gone with ubiquiti radios and antennas. Mikrotik still sit at our (decentralised) core, about 8 RB1100's deployed for tower and relay sites, doing PPP termination and OSPF. Mikrotik still very much run our network, and boy do I wish I could have used mikrotik radio's because Winbox is so much better than airOS web management (especially over 500ms satellite links), but Ubiquiti's offerings seem to work just that much better in the noisy environments.
