​AREDN Donates Mesh Networking Equipment to ARRL

 

High-Speed Multimedia Mesh (HSMM) technology has evolved rapidly in recent years due to the development efforts of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) open source project. This has changed the complexion of mesh implementations from an experimental, hobby-oriented, novelty into a viable alternative network suitable for supporting high-speed emergency communications and Internet connectivity when “all else fails.”

The AREDN project team recently donated the following equipment to the ARRL Laboratory:

  • Two Ubiquiti Nanostation M3’s for 3.4 GHz
  • Two Ubiquiti Nanostation Loco M5’s for 5.8 GHz
  • One PowerBeam PBE-M5-300-ISO for 5.8 GHz
  • One AirRouter HP (combination 2.4 GHz and Ethernet switch)

The AREDN (pronounced “r-den”) project is working with ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio to inform the amateur radio community about this high-speed, low-cost networking technology. To further our shared goal of supporting emergency responders, AREDN has donated a substantial kit of mesh networking equipment to the ARRL for their familiarization and deployment. Both groups plan to work together to provide written guidance on the best practices for using this networking capability to provide such services as voice-over-IP telephony (VoIP), streaming video, email, and much more.

​Hamvention® 2018 Theme Promotes Community Service


As reported by the ARRL, the theme for Hamvention® 2018 is “Amateur Radio...Serving the Community.” Ron Cramer, KD8ENJ, Hamvention General Chairman, said the theme acknowledges the role that ham radio operators play in their communities, especially in times of emergencies.
 
“During recent disasters, hurricanes in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico and wildfires in the West, Amateur Radio operators were once again called upon to provide emergency communication assistance when regular services failed or were overtaxed,” Cramer said.
 
He said that in keeping with the theme, Hamvention is planning to have forums on emergency communication and displays of Amateur Radio emergency communication vehicles. Disasters are not the only times that Amateur Radio operators contribute to their communities. 

For more information see the Hamvention website and the ARRL website.

Look for the AREDN team and the Miami Valley Mesh Alliance when you are there. We look forward to meeting you.

​DMR over MESH Forum from Cowtown Hamfest, 2018

From the Cowtown Hamfest, KD5RXT shows us how to connect DMR hotspots together over a MESH network, using either AREDN or BBHN.  AREDN is one of my show sponsors, and I am happy to support them.  This is a cool idea on how to setup an inter-op network to use DMR if you have to setup in an emergency situation or somewhere without internet.

​AREDN at Southern California Linux Expo in March


The 16th annual Southern California Linux Expo – will take place on March. 8-11, 2018, at the Pasadena Convention Center. Sunday, March 11 will be a day to showcase amateur radio. Remember that Daylight Saving Time starts on that day, so make sure your clocks are set correctly.

SCaLE is the largest community-run open-source and free software conference in North America. It is held annually in the greater Los Angeles area.

As reported by the ARRL, The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) will demonstrate and answer questions about Amateur Radio mesh networking. AREDN writes firmware to move wireless access points into the Amateur Radio portions of the 2.4-, 3.4-, and 5.8-GHZ bands. Images from an AREDN camera recently provided live images from the Thomas Fire in California.

​Orv Beach, KB6I, will present “Linux and the Ham Radio Internet” in Room 212...

Reminder - AREDN Has Implemented TLS on Website


The AREDN Project has enabled mandatory use of transport layer security (TLS) on the AREDN.org website starting today Saturday, September 23, 2017.  TLS is an encryption technology that obscures the meaning of the website traffic to 3rd parties. We are doing this to better serve our community and to avoid being labeled a potentially harmful website by ever increasingly strict search engines and browsers.

You should know that accessing the AREDN website with TLS over an amateur radio link may be considered a violation of FCC Part 97 regulations. 


​AREDN Team at HAMCON 2017


The AREDN team will be participating in the HAMCON 2017 / ARRL Southwestern Division Conference at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach Hotel in Torrance, California on September 15 - 17, 2017.

Andre, K6AH, will be present two sessions on the AREDN project on Saturday September 16. Andre’s talk is titled The AREDN Project: The Latest in Mesh Network.
His first session will be in the Pier 2 and 4 rooms at 11:00 a.m. His second session will be in the Pier 6 room at 1:00 p.m.

Andre will discuss key factors for success in planning and building a high-speed multimedia mesh network to support emergency service providers and communicators. He will present lessons learned from deploying a mesh network in Southern California which covers more than 16,000 square miles and has the potential to serve over 18 million people.
Both sessions will cover the same material.

We hope to see you there.

Archive of Release and Operational Notes

There are archives of the AREDN™ software Release Notes and Operational Notes as separate menu items under the Docs dropdown on the main menu bar. This should make it easier to find the important notes about each software version.
