This is about a Zoom session to be held this coming Saturday about deployment of AREDN mesh nodes in Hawaii. AREDN is basically an IP network (like the Internet) that is implemented over microwave based radio links in the amateur radio bands at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. In many areas of the US, AREDN mesh networks form a critical part of EMCOMM infrastructure. Aside from its use in EMCOMM activities, it is a very interesting area of work in amateur radio. This Zoom session is a great opportunity to learn more about this technology, including how it is being used and deployed in Hawaii. This meeting is open to anyone interested.

Here is the official invite:

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.
