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

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.
