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.

​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.


​AREDN Map Now on Home Page

A map of the currently known AREDN nodes is available under the Map menu item on the main menu bar. You can also download KML files of the node location to use with Google Earth.

The collection of How-To articles is now found as a sub-menu under the Docs menu item on the main menu bar.

Please consider uploading the coordinates of your AREDN nodes per the instructions below.
 

Optional Settings on AREDN Basic Setup Page

If you choose, you can specify your latitude, longitude, and gridsquare for location purposes. The lat/lon values should be in decimal format (ex. 30.444522 and -95.111234).

  • The Find Me! button to use your location aware browser to populate the values. This works very well if you are viewing this page from a mobile device with a built-in GPS.

  • Use the Apply Location Settings button to persist the lat/lon and gridsquare values. A "Save Changes" button click is not required for these settings.

  • If you have an active internet connection available, the...

​AREDN at Ham-Com KG6JEI Presentation Video

A video of the presentation given by Conrad KG6JEI titled AREDN: The successor and future of BBHN at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas is available on the Internet. It was produced by Jason KC5HWB and is available on his website Hamradio 2.0 Live from the Hamshack. Jason did an excellent job of recording the talk. He also offers his personal impression of the evolution of mesh networking in the introduction. There are many other entertaining podcasts, now numbering 47,  on Jason's website.

The presentation slide deck will be available shortly in the Archive section of Ham-com 2016.

The AREDN team would like to thank the organizers of Ham-Com 2016 for putting on a first-rate convention. The staff were always eager to help and always delivered quickly. The Irving Convention Center is a great place to hold a large gathering - bright, clean and easy to get around.
