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.

​ARRL Awards 2018 Microwave Development Award to AREDN Team


​The ARRL announced that The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) project team was named as recipient of the 2018 ARRL Microwave Development Award for its initiatives to utilize Amateur Radio’s microwave bands. These included extending the network’s high-speed multimedia capabilities from solely 2.4 GHz to 900 MHz, 3 GHz, and 5.8 GHz, and adding 802.11n protocol to improve data throughput. The Board also acknowledged the efforts of the many AREDN implementation groups around the country who are building networks based on this technology and who stand ready to utilize them to serve the needs of their communities in times of disaster. 


AREDN Team Receives ARRL 2014 Microwave Development Award

Members of the AREDN Project accept  the 2014 ARRL Microwave Development Award for the microwave mesh networking advancements they achieved as the development arm of Broadband-Hamnet™ in 2014. Dick Norton, N6AA, Director-ARRL Southwestern Division, presented the award at the ARRL 2015 Southwest Division Convention's evening banquet.

​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.

Changes in this Release from BBHN 3.0.1

  • Header and footer added to the GUI screens with branding of AREDN™ logo and color scheme
  • Default SSID is now "AREDN".  Change to "BroadbandHamnet" if BBHN compatibilty is required
  • Bandwidth selection is no longer forced to be 20 MHz when using the default SSID on 2GHz

Additional Reading:

Please read the operational notes for usage information

 

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.

 

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.
