February 4th and 5th, 2014 155 N. 1000 W. Salt Lake City, Utah 84116 Utah State Fairpark - Grand Building

The Animal Farm (Season 8) trade conference is focused on service providers, WISPs and suppliers from around the world who in large part provide high-grade, high-speed broadband services and equipment to areas that are mostly underserved (or poorly served) by incumbent wireline service providers (i.e. cable and telco).

Animal Farm is held once annually in Salt Lake City, UT and is a place where you’ll find technical training, opportunities for industry networking and a trade show. Users of various broadband equipment from varied backgrounds meet and discuss topics of common interest.

These events are typically user driven, not vendor driven. The main focus is on what the users need, not on what someone wants to sell.

Join the event!

Streakwave Wireless Inc., a global distributor of wireless broadband equipment and related products (http://www.streakwave.com) is a Gold Sponsor of this event.

New Vendor Announcement - PingBrother

PingBrother is a manufacturer of cost effective, industrial passive POE switch (PSE) products, that can work with a wide range of low voltage inputs and can distribute its input power to any standard or non-standard POE device. The POE output power can be fully managed either manually, remotely over the network, scheduled, or by its own built-in control system which allows full user scripting. It also works as an IP watchdog, or intervenes when there is a change in input voltage, current or temperature. Automatic log entries and/or email notification can be made about these events and responses. It is a great and cost-effective multifunctional tool for unattended network devices such as IP cameras, Wi-fi radios, VOIP devices and switches, especially those which have a POE support. By manually deactivating the POE function, PingBrother can control any non-POE device by its relay contact outlets.

Organization Members Help Restore Broadband Service To Tornado-Stricken Oklahoma

WISPA and WECAT assist fellow wireless Internet service provider in rebuilding network through equipment and service donations


Bluffton, IN (May 30, 2013) – The WISPA Emergency Communication Action Team (WECAT), and the Wireless Internet Service Provider Association (WISPA), a membership organization that promotes the development, advancement and unity of the wireless Internet service provider industry, responded immediately to help restore vital broadband service to areas that were destroyed in the tornado that devastated sections of Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, 2013.


In the hours and days following the tornado, WECAT answered the call of Sooner Wireless, a wireless high-speed ISP that provides communications services to inner-city, rural, residential, and commercial customers in Oklahoma.  In the tornado, Sooner Wireless lost two of its wireless communications towers, causing loss of service to its business and residential customers.

To reduce the financial and service burden, members of WISPA donated enough equipment to Sooner Wireless so it could rebuild its wireless infrastructure and restore service. Both WISPA members and non-members that donated equipment and service included Baltic Networks, Convergence Technologies, Link Technologies, Fourway Computer Products, On-Ramp Indiana, Streakwave Wireless, Ubiquiti Networks and WECAT.


“We appreciate the generosity of the WISP community in helping us get back on our feet.  Before we even had a chance to ask, WISPA began collecting and sending us equipment,” said Jeff Burnham, President of Sooner Wireless.  “The help we received will enable Sooner Wireless to restore service ‘sooner,’ in the spirit of our state’s founders.”


“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those in Moore, Oklahoma and the surrounding areas.  WISPA and WECAT support members in need and all necessary equipment has been donated, allowing Sooner Wireless to begin repairs and to restore broadband service,” said Victoria Proffer, WECAT President and a WISPA Board of Directors Member. “WISPA and WECAT are pleased that they can be there for companies and communities that suffer from catastrophes such as those that occurred last week.”


WECAT is accepting donations for WISPs that are in current need of assistance.  For more information and to donate equipment, services or financial assistance, click on the following link: www.wecat.org.


About WECAT

The mission of the WISPA Emergency Communication Action Team (WECAT) is to assist in the repair of emergency and existing wireless broadband infrastructure during times of need. WECAT works directly with Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) to ensure emergency communications are available to their surrounding communities and help in the rebuilding of their infrastructure.


About WISPA

WISPA is a membership-driven trade association that promotes the development, advancement and unity of the wireless Internet service provider industry. WISPA has over 700 members that support WISPA’s advocacy, education and other collaborative industry initiatives. For more information, visit www.wispa.org.


About Sooner Wireless

Streakwave Announces New Product Line - RF Armor


RF Armor, LLC is a producer of Carrier Class RF shielding products designed for the Ubiquiti (UBNT) MIMO product line to help reduce the front to back noise ratio, eliminate collocation interference, greatly reduce foreign/hostile interference, allow for better channel planning, and protect the Rocket and Jumpers from the debris, pests and other elements. The RF Armor line substantially improves performance by providing a lower noise floor with higher sustainable air rates with fewer errors. Featuring marine-grade aluminum, their shield kits have been created with both durability and quality in mind to last throughout the years. - See more at: http://www.streakwave.com/product-rf-armor.asp

Here’s what customers are saying about RF Armor:


"We got a 3 dB signal improvement with this shielding kit, higher data rate and most important the clients bandwidth doubled."


"I couldn't believe how well made these things are made, Is a super good fit and make for a really sturdy mount, Oh and it's also good at blocking out other RF's, well worth it."


"Like some others, I have to admit I was slightly skeptical about these units when I first heard about them two years ago. However, since using them we will never go back. They definitely reduce noise, boost the operational efficiency of the sectors, and protect the radio and connectors from the weather. Highly recommend!"

Streakwave Webinars is pleased to present a product and technology overview of Tycon Power Solutions. This Webinar will look at creative ways to add power solutions to broadband wireless, IP Security and Surveillance, and a range of wireless applications. 


Tycon Power specializes in solutions involving multiple power options such as solar, wind, battery and PoE. By engineering the right solution, applications can be placed in the field where little or no primary power sources may be available or financially viable to bring to the site. 


Tycon Power and Streakwave will examine the requirements for power, ways to deploy, solutions, and products available. Do you need a remote power solution? Perhaps a way to supplement power choices? Do you want a self-contained IP Security System, hotspot, backhaul, digital signage, or other solution and need a way to integrate power solutions, consider Tycon Power choices.


Tycon offers products in a wide range of voltages and for differing power demand needs. You may need simple back-up or have more complex power needs. Your site may be remote or just inaccessible in a very populated area. Learn some of the choices and typical applications that can be deployed. 


Streakwave Wireless (http://www.streakwave.com) is a value added global distributor of broadband wireless products including power options. Please join Streakwave Webinars for this one-hour presentation including (time permitting) a digital question and answer session. There is no cost for this Webinar.
