AREDN Announces Release of Fourth Beta 3.15.1.0b4

The following fixes/enhancements are found in the v3.15.1.0b4 release:

  • Fixed a couple of issues with the WiFi scan and in the process made it much more useful
  • Added a new sysinfo.json page which exposes many of the configuration, operational, and status parameters.  This provides a lightweight programming API that can be used to retrieve node metadata.
  • Various sysupgrade fixes
  • Various tunneling fixes
  • Fixed the package repo designation (Barrier Breaker instead of Attitude Adjustment)
  • Added support for a new model of Rocket M5 with USB
  • Fixed TPLink power configuration issues
  • The TP-Link user interface now correctly honors per channel max power limits declared by hardware
  • Added additional info to the support data dump to further enhance supportability and debugging
  • Fixed an issue where one or more neighbor nodes will drop out and not reconnect due to the node's receiver becoming deaf in noisy environments
  • Fixed a compliance issue with Part 97 identification requirements

We are all eager to see these fixes and enhancements in the...

New Paper on AREDN Published by TAPR

The Proceedings of the 2015 Digital Communications Conference include a paper, The AREDN Project by Andre Hansen, K6AH, which introduces AREDN, describes implementation techniques and concludes with a roadmap for the future.

Abstract

Mesh technology has been around for ten years or more. Over the past two years a team of developers has advanced the art by porting Broadband‐Hamnet’s extremely popular mesh firmware to the Ubiquiti airMAX line of commercial Wireless ISP routers and expanded its utility across a wide range of microwave bands. This has literally changed the complexion of mesh technology from an experimental, hobby‐oriented, novelty into a viable alternative network suitable for restoring some degree of Inter/intra‐net connectivity “when all else fails.”

In the midst of this work the AREDN Project was kicked off to focus development on taking this technology to the next level in EMCOMM communications.

This paper begins with an introduction to the AREDN Project and mesh networking and concludes with a roadmap for the Project’s future. It dives into implementation techniques and aggressive plans to implement across broad portions of the Southwestern US.

Request for Testers for Ubiquiti XW Issues

The Development Team is currently focused on troubleshooting the Ubiquiti XW issue.  We believe there are likely multiple defects across multiple products which has made this a challenging exercise.

We are looking for testers willing to step out on the edge for us to confirm the existence of these problems across our supported Ubiquiti devices. 

Test Setup

You will want to have two devices in the test setup: one being a known good device (XM device) and the other being the XW device under test.  The XW device should have something connected to its Ethernet LAN port that generates some amount of traffic, although the amount of traffic is not terribly important.

The problems are easy to spot… the device’s Ethernet interface simply stops working. 

If these devices are being loaded for the first time, be sure to downgrade to the XW 5.5.x AirOS image first!  It would also be helpful to capture a “board.info” file for us before proceeding.  These are necessary to add full support for devices that haven’t previously been seen by...

​AREDN Team to Attend TAPR 2016

The AREDN team will be attending the 35th Annual ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference on September 16-18, 2016, St Petersburg, FL.

Our very own, Andre, K6AH, will be presenting an update on the AREDN project at 1:00 pm on Friday September 16. His paper builds on an AREDN paper published in the proceedings of the ARRL and TAPR 34th Digital Communications Conference 2015. Where that paper introduced the technology and the work of the AREDN Project software development team, this paper picks up where that leaves off and describes techniques for deploying AREDN in support of AUXCOM.

We plan to be in the demo room to show some AREDN applications. We would love to see you there.
