AREDN at Frostfest 2019

AREDN mesh networkers will be at the Frostfest 2019 in Richmond, VA on Saturday, February 2, 2019. The location is the Richmond Raceway Complex, 600 East Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, VA 23222-2253. This event is the ARRL Roanoke Division Convention, so there will be many League officials on site.

A group led by Damon Schaefer K9CQB will be on hand to demonstrate equipment and answer your questions. Just look for the large AREDN banner at their table. His team plans to populate the booth with several masts bristling with equipment and 2 large monitors, one running an AREDN slideshow and one with a local mesh network for live demonstrations. 

Stop by and say hello!


Standardized NanoStation XM Ethernet port configuration


The NanoStation XM devices now have fully functional ports - both main and secondary.   This capability will be in Dec 3, 2018 nightly build.   The behavior is now same as NanoStation XW devices.   POE Passthough is also functional.   

This new capability means the following usage is significantly simplified to setup.   At local community events when setting up ipCams around a parade route or event area, there can be a station with 2 nodes -- incoming link on one channel/band and outgoing link on another channel/band.  This means many HD video quality signals can go through the station as this relay station does not share the same frequency.

Before:   

2 mesh nodes, 1 ipCam, 1 5-port switch, 4 way power split to all devices, junction box.   Lots of labor and points of failure to build and configure the enclosure and cabling.

After:

2 mesh nodes, 1 ipCam, daisy chain the cat5 cables though these devices, no enclosure.   


Issues to consider when deploying:


1) I've seen a NSM2 XM device...
