Beta Test Announcement

 

The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN™) Project Announces an Important Upcoming Firmware Release

 

On May 28th, the AREDN Project released to its team of volunteer testers, a new beta-version of its upcoming release, v3.15.1.0.  This is the most significant and important release since this development team introduced support for the Ubiquiti AirMax line of hardware back in 2013.

Here is a list of some of the new features:

  • Over the air, remote firmware upgrades – this allows node owners to upgrade a node’s firmware release without going out to the site.  It accomplishes this by saving the node’s configuration settings and automatically reloading them after the upgrade has taken place.
  • Support for NanoStation M5 with the new XW boards – many have purchased these devices unaware that Ubiquiti made a hardware change to the product which rendered it unusable with AREDN firmware… up until now.
  • Support for the Rocket M3, NanoStation M3, and NanoBridge M3 – This is our first release supporting devices in the 3.4 GHz ham band.  This band has no commercial allocations in the U.S. and as a result should be ultra-quiet.  We are excited about breaking into this band and what it could mean for this technology.
  • Expanded channel support:
    • 2.4 GHz now offers channels -1, and -2 !
    • 3.4 GHz offers 24 new channels from 3.380...

AREDN™ - The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network

Mesh technology has evolved over the years.  Most notably, Broadband-Hamnet™ (BBHN) has made substantial progress over the past 2 years in expanding their unique approach to environmentally robust, commercially available, Ubiquiti, hardware.  This has changed the complexion of mesh implementations from an experimental, hobby-oriented, novelty into a viable alternative network suitable for restoring some level of Inter/intra-net connectivity when “all else fails.”

Recently, the developers of BBHN software have kicked-off a new project focused on taking this technology to the next level.  Comprised of the project manager, developers, and several of the testers who brought BBHN to Ubiquiti hardware, this team is geared to pick up where BBHN left-off.

The AREDN Project mission is to provide the Amateur Radio Community with a quality solution for supporting the needs of high speed data in the Amateur Radio and Emergency Communications field.

We invite you download and adopt the AREDN Release 3.0.2 and give us the opportunity to support your mesh implementation.

For the AREDN Team,

Andre, K6AH

​AREDN Team at Ham-Com 2016

The AREDN team will be present at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas on June 10 and 11. 

At 12:00 noon on Friday in room 4, Conrad KG6JEI will present an overview of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network project and how it can help you meet the growing need to  transmit large amounts of data efficiently over Amateur Radio. The talk will be followed by a discussion and workshop at which team members will demonstrate various aspects of the current software.

We plan to run the workshop again on Saturday. We are scheduled to be in Room 9 again from 13:00 to 14:50.

We are looking forward to seeing you there and answering your questions.
