    • Denmark - Geography lesson Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
    • Denmark - Facts!
      • 5.427.459 (5 mill) people (jan. 06)
      • Highest point 130m (1000 feet)
      • High living standard and general social infrastructure
      • High IT infrastructure in urban areas
      • Lower Infrastructure in rural areas
      Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
      • State wants to guarantee IT
      • Powercompanies go telecom
      • IT and Telecom is relatively expensive
      • 3.610.100 phonelines
      • 4.785.300 Cell phones
    • Denmark - no internet?
      • Generally promise of up to 95% DSL coverage by Telecom
      • ~ 81% have a computer
      • ~ 83% have access to Inter net
      • ~ 50% access to Internet at home
      • Rural areas with communities of op to 50.000 only 75%
      • Tendency to “await fiber solution” as solution in rural areas
      Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
    • Why worry?
      • IT underdevelopment in rural areas equals de-population
      • Social deroute in rural areas
      • 2 urban cities tendency:
        • Copenhagen
        • Aarhus
      • Commercially unattractive
      • Fiber roll-out takes many years

        • Problems with 802.11a/b/g and telephony solutions
        • ...

    • Community solutions?
      • Volunteer based Communities:
        • Tired of waiting

        • Heard / read about / seen similar solutions all over the world
        • Unwilling to pay the expensive fiberbased solutions - if it comes
        • Used to TV by satellite
        • Denmark has Community culture

    • DjurslandS.net - Mikrotik
      • Mikrotik “saved” the project
      • User divide on routing platform
      • Too few “Linux nerds”
      • Started “borrowing” M$ server for routing
      • Met Dmitry and John, CeBIT 2003
      • Moved focus from platforms to learning how to route
      • Superusers can easily learn simple tasks in WinBox
      • We “nerds” may still “fool around” in shell
      Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
    • DjurslandS.net - People
      • 100% non-commercial
      • 100% build by volunteers
      • 100% growth expected the next 2 years
      • Users still pay $320,- and $16,- / month
      • STILL NO HIRED STAFF
      • 300+ Volunteers build everything
      • No fond finances, no help from government

      • Will include VoIP
      • Cost: $500,- and $16,- month
      • First link to remote island made
    • SevelNet.dk - Commercial Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
      • Powerline sold solution to the City
      • City had an “Investment community” that wished to finance the infrastructure, ROI = 3 years

      • Cost with VoIP: $200,- / $30,- month
      • Mikrotik based backhaul and CPE
    • Broadband in Denmark Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006
      • Power companies ”go Telecom
      • They use billions of $ digging fiber
      • States publicly that every home is FTTH enabled within a few year
      • Logistically impossible
      • Minimum 10 years before the farms in Denmark is FTTH enabled
      • Using inferiour PON fiber solution
      • Still a big marked for wireless
      • No need yet for TV on demand (illigal)
    • Farmers in Denmark whining Mikrotik in rural area networks - MUM Dallas, Texas 2006 ” Being a farmer without broadband sucks” ” Rural areas needs speed on the internet”
    • HiSpeed Internet cost
      • Even IF the Power/Telecom guys get there, a fiber internet connection is not cheap
      • Focus on speed, not price
      • Typicaly twice the price of DSL
      • DSL in denmark starts around $60,- / month – flatrate
      • Telephone monthly fixed fee is $20,- and then you start paying pr. minute
      • ” Do it together” wireless solution has an ROI of 1 (one) year in Denmark
      • A commercially is absolutely feasible:
        • RouterBoards as hardware
        • MT-OS as firmware
        • 5GHz (802.11a – 1W) radio technology
