WIRELESS EQUIPMENT, RADIOS, & ANTENNAS

The following information about customer premise equipment is provided for your information.

  1. INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (lSP): shall mean SoMoCo Wireless, Inc.
  2. CUSTOMER PREMISE EQUIPMENT (CPE): shall mean any and all antenna's, radio's, mounts, and associated equipment installed at a subscribers physical location.
  3. INELLECTUAL PROPERTY: shall mean any configurations, firmware, software, etc. that is electronically stored or programmed into the radio device.
  4. lP ADDRESSES: shall mean numerical labels assigned to each device in a computer network that uses internet protocol for communications. An lP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) manages the lP address space allocations globally and delegates five regional internet registries (RlRs) to allocate address blocks to local internet service providers. The addresses in use by SoMoCo Wireless are the property of our backbone service provider and are assigned to SoMoCo Wireless for use by its subscribers while a current subscriber of our services. No ownership of any address is transferred nor is any address guaranteed to be available permanently to any subscriber. Addresses are subject to change at any time based on the network engineer's determination.
  5. A MEDIA ACCESS CONTROL ADDRESS (MAC address): is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the media access control protocol sub-layer of the OSI reference model. MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface controller (NlC) and are stored in its hardware, such as the card's read-only memory or some other firmware mechanism. lf assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number and may be referred to as the burned-in address (BlA). lt may also be known as an Ethernet hardware address (EHA), hardware address or physical address. This can be contrasted to a programmed address, where the host device issues commands to the NIC to use an arbitrary address. A network node may have multiple NlCs and each NIC must have a unique MAC address.
  6. ALL CPE: shall remain the property of SoMoCo Wireless due to the proprietary information contained or programmed therein. SoMoCo Wireless is responsible for the maintenance of the CPE's firmware and configuration. This information is protected by password access only available to authorized SoMoCo Wireless personnel. All CPE contains ISP specific codes that allow the operation on specific frequency bands. Those codes are assigned specifically to the ISP and not to the subscriber. The ISP is responsible for the proper operation of the CPE pursuant to FCC regulations.
  7. A CHARGE: is made for the CPE at the time of installation which is considered to be a part of the installation in lieu of a monthly rental charge for the CPE. The demarcation point between ISP equipment and the subscribers equipment occurs at the power injector (POE) usually located within the subscribers building.
  8. DISCONTINUATION OF SERVICE: upon termination or cancellation of service by either party SoMoCo Wireless shall remove the CPE from the premises of the subscriber. This may include all of the CPE or select items as deemed appropriate by SoMoCo Wireless.
