On 6th May 2018 Sunday our client Last Mile Heath complained that the Internet service was not working. My Boss Mr. Haresh called me and informed me about this incident.
We have Access Points at strategic locations all over the city that we normally get a clear line of sight and connect our numerous clients.
One of our AP’s is located on a tower at SKD complex. This client was connected to this AP. There was heavy rain the night before and the whole tower came crashing down around 05:00 p.m. when a big gust of wind came in.
Internet service to all clients connected to this AP was affected.
The tower is still being rebuilt, as we write this blog, but we had to find an alternate solution to connect our client(s).
I called our technicians and asked them to be available as early as possible on Monday morning so that we could go to LMH and reposition the AP’s direction to another AP located at Old Road.
Here are some pictures of the fallen giant tower at SKD:
We arrived at the LMH office much before 8 AM on Monday morning to begin our work. Below is a picture of the Internet dish antenna pointed to SKD tower side.
We shifted the direction to old road AP.
We changed IP and SSID. Using MikroTik Interface via Winbox software.
The signal strength from Old Road tower is very good and the internet connection to our client is stable.
