The AREDN™ Project announces its release of version 3.16.1.0 firmware

This release focuses primarily on improving data rates and node manageability. The following changes have been made from our previous, v3.15.1.0, production release:
Data Rate Increase

  • 802.11n has been added to the RF protocol.  This improves the maximum data rate capability from 54 Mbps to 130 Mbps and allows AREDN nodes to take advantage of the Ubiquiti MIMO (concurrent data channels in both the vertical and horizontal polarization domains), although proportional data rate increases can also be achieved on non-MIMO devices

New Device Support

  • Added support for the Ubiquiti AirRouter and AirRouter HP.  These are desktop devices with an embedded a 5-port Ethernet switch we have preconfigured for WAN, LAN (ports 1-3) and DtD (port 4)

Upgradability

  • The distance parameter entry is now mandatory during initial node setup.  Its value can now be entered in either Kilometers or Miles.  Testing has proven that data throughput is highly responsive to correctly setting this parameter
  • Increased the upload-timeout for pushing firmware upgrades to remote nodes over marginal paths
  • Added the ability for packages, such as iPerf, to open firewalls ports at the time of installation

Node/Network Manageability

  • Added transmit...

The AREDN Project Announces the Release of its Beta Test v3.16.1.0b02

This is the second beta release of the anticipated v3.16.1.0 which focuses on improving data rates and node manageability.  The following changes have been made from our previous beta v3.16.1.0b01 release:

 

  • Improved the operation of the distance parameter Kilometers / Miles entry
  • Added a “busy spinner” on the SNR Chart to indicate data is being collected and to wait for results
  • Added a disclosure statement on what gets uploaded with the optional LAT/LON “push” and how it will be used in publishing the public AREDN map
  • Fixed an intermittent upgrade failure with “keep settings”
  • Increased the Firmware Upload script timeout from 90 to 240 seconds to allow sufficient time for remote nodes to be updated on marginal links
  • Resolved a DNS issue with node name changes
  • Resolved a Tunnel firewall issue
  • Added support for the Ubiquiti AirRouter (non-HP)
  • The TxMbps calculation in Mesh Status improved to more accurately characterize link throughput
  • Fixed an issue with programs running on a tunnel client or server node communicating across the tunnel
  • ...

​AREDN Team at Ham-Com 2016

The AREDN team will be present at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas on June 10 and 11. 

At 12:00 noon on Friday, Conrad KG6JEI will present an overview of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network project and how it can help you meet the growing need to  transmit large amounts of data efficiently over Amateur Radio. The talk will be followed by a discussion and workshop at which team members will demonstrate various aspects of the current software.

We plan to run the workshop again on Saturday. We are scheduled to be in Room 4 again from 13:00 to 14:50.

We are looking forward to seeing you there and answering your questions.
