The AREDN Project Announces the Release of its Beta Test v3.16.1.0b01

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

  • 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
  • Added support for the Ubiquiti AirRouter HP, a desktop device with an embedded a 5-port Ethernet switch we have preconfigured for WAN, LAN (ports 1-3) and DtD (port 4)
  • Added ability for packages, such as iPerf, to open firewalls ports at the time of installation
  • The distance parameter entry is now mandatory during initial node setup.  Its value can now be entered in either Kilometers or Miles
  • Added transmit data throughput values (TxMbps) for Current Neighbors on the Mesh Status screen
  • Decreased SSID Beacon rate from ~10x to ~2x a second. Providing more RF for data on links with multiple nodes, especially on 900MHz and 2.4GHZ at 5MHz wide channels
  • Added a user-specified time zone and NTP server on the Setup page
  • Completely rewrote the graphical reporting of SNR to show real-time and 2-day...

The AREDN Project announces its release of version 3.15.1.0 firmware  

 
This release advances the objectives of the AREDN™ Project: to provide quality high-speed data solutions for the Amateur Radio based Emergency Communications community.  Hams have been waiting eagerly for the features contained in this release… many of whom got an early peek at them from testing the beta versions throughout the past several months. 

The following changes have been made from the previous, 3.0.2, production release:
 
  • Added support for the following devices:
    • Ubiquiti 3.4 GHz NanoBridge M3, NanoStation M3, Rocket M3
    • Ubiqiuti 5.8 GHz NanoStation M5 (XW version)
    • TP-Link 2.4 GHz CPE320, and 5.8 GHz CPE510
  • Expanded channel support:
    • 2.4 GHz now offers channels -1 and -2 which are not shared with WIFI routers
    • 3.4 GHz offers 24 new channels from 3.380 to 3.495 GHz
    • 5.8 GHz there are now 52 channels from 5.665 to 5.920 GHz
  • Added “over the air” (OTA) remote firmware upgrades, allowing node owners to upgrade a node’s firmware without going out to the site.  NOTE:  The OTA upgrade does not preserve packages a node Administrator has installed and may not preserve custom config changes made by hand beyond the out of box AREDN firmware.
  • Built-in VTUN Tunneling support in the standard GUI.  You can...

Search results improvement

The results you will see from a search have changed. By default, search results are now grouped by the type of source page. This means that all results from Forum Topics are grouped together separately from search results from Knowledge Base, How To, News, Announcements and other page types.

Additionally, the source forum is indicated so that you will immediately know if the search result originated in a regional sub-forum or something else, such as hardware, VoIP, deployment or ragchew. 

We hope that this improvement makes finding information easier for you.
