On December 5th from 10:00 to 12:00 HST the Hawaii IEEE Communications
Society Chapter is hosting a seminar Introducing the technologies behind
AREDN MESH and the possibilities and capabilities to serve counties and
state for backup emergency communications.

It will cover the concept, design, and implementation of an AREDN MESH
network in Hawaii, explain where things started, what are some of the
constraints and obstacles with the design, how far it has come so far
across the state, and how the future looks for this system to play a
role in EmComm.
