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.

Tunnel Solution

Thanks to the hard work of Darryl K5DLQ and the Beta Team, we are happy to announce that a new feature allowing tunnels between nodes that do not have RF connections, but do have internet connection, is now available as an add-on to the 3.0.1 BBHN build.  While this feature has been heavily requested by many users, it does have some limitations on the supported hardware in that it will only work on devices  with 8mb flash and 32mb of ram. This means that while all Ubiquiti devices are supported that we can only support WRT54GS v1,v2,v3 from the Linksys side. This feature is expected to make it into mainline in the near future, for now to install this feature requires performing some manual steps. Full install instructions can be found here: http://www.aredn.org/node/25

 

3.0.1 Released

Today I am happy to announce the 4th stable release of BBHN in the past year. 3.0.1 is available for immediate download and consists primarily of bug fixes. I am also happy to announce at the same time that the bugs that are fixed in this build have allowed for the final development of a tunnel solution for extending node networks when no RF path exists. Release notes for 3.0.1 are available at http://bbhndev.org/node/24 for more information on this release.

 

3.0.1rc2 Released

3.0.1 Release Candidate 2 (3.0.1rc2) is now available. Changes in this version compared to 3.0.1rc1 is a fix on a regression of BBHN->ticket:74 on LInksys devices that broke package downloads. Ubiquiti build is the same as 3.0.1rc1.

 

3.0.1rc1 Released

3.0.1 Release Candidate 1 (3.0.1rc1) is now available. Changes in this version compared to 3.0.1b01 is the addition of a new watchdog script that we believe will solve the reboot count issue on nodes (apparent false triggers of the OLSRD Watchdog) and some overdue legal work in the backend adding the GPLv3 License header to appropriate files. Should this version pass testing the current goal is to promote this version to a full release before February 1st 2015 (The 1 year anniversary of adding Ubiquiti device support) A patch file is available for Ubiquiti, due to file size no patch is available for Linksys.
