Development Code Branch Now Available


Last year AREDN moved away from a formal set of beta test scripts and dedicated testers to a more agile beta general-release model.  Users were eager to get their hands on features they requested months earlier and help us test in preparation for a production release.   While we have been happy with the results, we have noticed that features that take a long time to develop only see the light of day months after development.  We have no easy way to learn from them before beta release.  Today, this is changing.
 
We are going to give anyone who wants it, access to the AREDN development branch builds, which includes the latest features we are developing… even before we are done with them!
 
We have been criticized by some for putting out too many releases.  Our philosophy, which does differ from some other organizations, is very much aligned to the vast majority of open source projects in the industry.  We are completely committed to following this successful model. It is an approach that is more suitable to our nature characterized by: dynamic requirements, a small number of developers, a culture that readily responds to change, and a user community of hams comprised of a highly technical subset who are mature enough to distinguish bleeding-edge from production-ready software.
 
AREDN uses a continuous integration build server (Jenkins)...

The AREDN™ Project announces its release of version 3.16.1.1 firmware

This release is a security patch release from our previous 3.16.1.0 release. It is recommended to upgrade all AREDN nodes to 3.16.1.1.

OTA Upgrade Note
In a future release tunnels will be required to be disabled prior to upgrades being permitted on a mesh node.
If you are running a tunnel server or client it is recommended the following steps be performed as in the future similar steps will be mandatory.

  1. Disable all tunnel server/client connections
  2. Reboot
  3. Apply the 3.16.1.1 upgrade
  4. Re-install tunnels packages
  5. Enable previously disabled tunnel connection

 
The following changes have been made from our previous, v3.15.1.0, production release:
Notable Security Patches
 

  • SCS-2017-001 – High Severity
    A remote Denial of Service flaw impacting ALL RELEASES of the AREDN/BBHN branded firmware since at least version 0.4.3. Immediate upgrade to 3.16.1.1 (or newer) is recommended to ensure stability of the mesh nodes.
  • SCS-2016-005 – Low Severity
    A number of low severity flaw in dropbear (the ssh server) were reported to AREDN. While these flaws were in 3.16.1.0 they could not be exploited in a default installation as the features were not utilized (CVE-2016-7406,...

​AREDN in June 2017 QST

AREDN – A High-Speed Data Network by Andre Hansen, K6AH appears in the June 2017 edition of QST.  The article is a thorough discussion of a high-speed multimedia network for public service applications.

Andre describes the features and functions of this innovative open-source effort. The AREDN project repurposes commercial microwave hardware for use on amateur radio bands. He provides an overview of the steps necessary in designing, building and operating an RF network which is focused on supporting emergency response agencies.

A large-scale deployment already covers much of Southern California. A multi-tiered AREDN network in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles counties covers more than 16,000 square miles and has the potential to serve over 18 million people.

Hamvention 2017 Mesh Network Forum

Saturday, May 20, 2017
Forum Room 2 at 1:30 pm


Moderator:  Bill Curtice, WA8APB, Miami Valley Mesh Alliance (MVMA)

Hams around the world are now building radio-based high speed digital mesh networks across their cities using microwave technologies and low cost commercial hardware adapted for Amateur Radio use.  Mesh provides flexible, high speed wireless communications that can be adapted to varying terrain types, can be rapidly deployed, are fun to build and use, and are particularly well suited to the EmComm needs of many served agencies. 

The MVMA is delighted to host Andre Hansen, K6AH, of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) Project, speaking on how to build an effective AuxComm, high-speed data network based on Ubiquiti airMAX products and the AREDN Project’s firmware.

Andre will describe a 3-tiered architecture---using illustrations of actual installations---where AREDN implementers in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles Counties have combined to cover over 16,000 square miles with a potential of supporting Incident Command...

​Hamvention 2017


The AREDN Project and the Miami Valley Mesh Alliance will have a large presence at Hamvention 2017. We will be in booth 1001 in Building 1 at the Greene County Fairgrounds near Xenia, Ohio. The dates are May 19, 20 and 21, 2017.

We are planning to conduct several demonstrations and answer all your questions about how mesh networking can aid your local emergency response agencies. In the AREDN Forum under General Discussion we have a thread to collect your suggestions for what you would like to see demonstrated.

In Forum room 2 on Saturday, May 20th, from 1:30 to 2:30, Andre, K6AH, will deliver a brief intro to AREDN mesh networking and discuss a simple, yet successful implementation technique that has been used to provide coverage throughout 5 counties---over 16,000 square miles---of Southern California; standing ready to serve the disaster services needs of over 18 million people.  The deployed ham in this scenario delivers these services with an investment in gear, over and above an existing VHF go-kit, of well under $100.

This presentation will show you how you may be able to do this in your...
