  • 5. Wi-Fi Repeater Procurement & Research Document V1.1 !1. Basic InformationIn the common infrastructure network, the nodes must be configured to pass along traffic to other nodes.However there might be some obstacle exist between the link that make the Line of Sight (LOS) becomeimpossible. The WiFi repeater is a node that is configured to rebroadcast traffic that is not destined for thenode itself using the obstacle between nodes as repeater site [1]. The WiFi repeater can also supply an Ethernetconnection to provide local connectivity. Moreover, a repeater can use one or more wireless devices, asdescribed below [1]: • A repeater with single radio (called a one-arm repeater), overall efficiency is slightly less than half of the available bandwidth, since the radio can either send or receive data, but never both at once. These devices are cheaper, simpler, and have lower power requirements. • A repeater with two (or more) radio cards can operate all radios at full capacity, as long as they are each configured to use non-overlapping channels.The WiFi repeater can be purchased as a complete hardware solution, or easily assembled by connecting 2 ormore wireless nodes together with the Ethernet cable. When planning to use a repeater built with 802.11technologies, the nodes must be configured for [1]:• Master (AP)• Managed (Client or Station)• Ad-hoc (mesh node)• Monitor (used for communications)• Other proprietary (MicroTik Nstreme or Ubiquity airMAX)Typically, both radios in a repeater are configured for master mode, to allow multiple clients to connect toeither side of the repeater. But depending on the network layout, one or more devices may need to use ad-hocor client mode. 5
  • 6. Wi-Fi Repeater Procurement & Research Document V1.1 !2. Network & Hardware Analysis2.1 Analysis of the Network RequirementBefore choosing what kind of WiFI repeater product that will be proposed to be used, it is important tounderstand the requirement of the network where this hardware will be installed. Below is the ConDroidteam’s analysis to the network requirement: Figure 1. Long line Interconnection between SomaliREN NOC and Amood University [2]1. The WiFi repeater would be installed in 100 km long distance link betweeb SomariREN NOC in Hargeisa City and Amoud University in Borama. The distance between the SomariREN NOC node to the WiFi repeater approximately would be 60 km, and the distance between the Amoud University node to the WiFi repeater approximately would be 40 km. Based on this data, it is clear the WiFi repeater set (the antenna and the repeater board) that would be chosen should have capability to cover are up to 50 km distance, in order to reach both of the end nodes.2. The installation of the WiFi repeater would be self-sustained, solar-driven, possibly with an ultracap battery as energy store. As the installation would be in the middle of the dessert, we can assume that the component would has enough power to operate.3. The WiFi link band and the component we propose to use is the 5.8GHz band rather than 2.8GHz band. This decision is made based on the considerations below: 6
  • 7. Wi-Fi Repeater Procurement & Research Document V1.1 !• The link between SomariREN NOC in Hargeisa City and Amoud University in Borama is a backhaul links point-to-point, thus it is better to use 5.8GHz band. This band offers a less crowded spectrum and smaller Fresnel zone while the 2.4GHz only has 3 non-overlapped channels, has crowded band, and larger Fresnel zone [3]. Thus it might face a lot of interference, example from the other WISPs, cordless phones, SOHO Wireless Router, etc.• The WiFi repeater would be placed in a mountain ridge, with 5400 feet elevation and both of the end nodes (SomariREN NOC and Amoud University) have approximately 4500 feet elevation. Based on general checking on Google map, we find out that this link is in the middle of the dessert. The 5.8GHz is known has more intolerant to obstacle than 2.4GHz [3], but based on this consideration we can be assume that there is no significant obstacle, like trees, buildings, walls, etc that would become barrier to Line of Sigh (LOS) of the WiFi signal.• The 5.8GHz has higher gain antennas and can better immunity to external sources of interferences if it is combined with this highly directional antenna [3].• There is no regulatory restriction in Somali on using 2.4GHz devices (with a narrow channel width) as point-to-point links. Thus there is no need to obtain permission from local authority or using the 3.65GHz band.2.3 Analysis of the Hardware (Ubiquity vs MicroTik)After doing the research of the network requirement, the Ubiquity and MicroTik technology and the productsthat available on the markets, we propose to use Ubiquity WiFi repeater board rather than the MicroTik,based on the comparison below (the detail of each WiFi repeater board of these 2 vendors available in section3 Harware Technical Detail): 1. Configuration point of view: The Ubiquity GUI interface makes the board become much easier to configure. Meanwhile, the MikroTik component requires specific training to be configured. 2. Processing point of view: Having the router and radio on the same device has some disadvantage as it may make the device prone to "hang" then need a reboot. Then if the routing becomes crucial requirement in this installation, then it would be needed to use the MikroTik RouterBoards with upgraded memory. But, if there is no routing requirement, then it is better to use the Ubiquity hardware. 7
  • 8. Wi-Fi Repeater Procurement & Research Document V1.1 !3. Protocol point of view:• MicroTik radio link protocol (Nstreme Dual) has 2 radio cards thus it can provides 2 physically separate antennas that deal with 2 different aspects of a TX-RX. Thus the power consumption is much less than the Ubiquity WiFi repeater board. However, the MikroTik WiFi repeater board might suffer with the interference between these 2 antennas when it is used in TX mode at the same time.• The Ubiquity radio link protocol (Airmax TDMA) has a modem that provides built-in GPS to synchronize the radios and out them in TX mode at the same time, provide radio link with full duplex bi- directional. Thus it solves the interference problem and provides more throughput to the network (up to 100 Mbps), thus it is preferably to be used in the backbone link.4. Power Consumption point of view:The Ubiquity board might have more power consumption compare to the MicroTik. However, as this WiFirepeater is designed to be installed on the top of the mountain, in the middle of the dessert with solar-driven,possibly with an ultra-cap battery as energy store, then we can assume there is enough power to run this WiFirepeater. Thus the issue of power consumption in the Ubiquity board can be acceptable, compare toits benefit.5. Serial Connection point of view:Both of the Ubiquity and MicroTik WiFi repeater board has serial connection that makes it able to be c. TheUbiquity WiFi repeater board provides TTL serial port, while the MicroTik WiFi repeater board providesRS232 serial port. We preferably to use the WiFi repeater board with TTL serial port (Ubiquity board) becausethe 2 USB-to-Serial converter boards (IOIO and Seeduino/Modern device), that we have chosen to connectthe Android device to the WiFi repeater board, also have TTL serial port, thus there is no need for TTL-to-RS232 converter cable to set up this Remote Management system. 8
