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...

AREDN Presentation at IARU Region 2 Emergency Communications Workshop

Andre Hansen, K6AH, gave a presentation today to the IARU Region 2 Emergency Communications Workshop in Viña del Mar, Chile. He introduced the technology and the work of the AREDN Project software development team and described techniques for deploying AREDN in support of AUXCOM.

​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. Most of all, we went home with fond memories of the hundreds of friendly...
