Broadband-Hamnet

Broadband-Hamnet.org (a.k.a. HSMM-MESH.org) are the group of HAMs that developed High Speed Multi Media (HSMM) and High Speed Multi Media Mesh (HSMM-MESH) for the Amateur radio community.  HSMM-MESH was later renamed Broadband-Hamnet and the website was moved to Broadband-Hamnet.org.  Read more...

AREDN

AREDN.org, also known as the AREDN Dev Team, is a group of software developers (formerly known as the BBHN Dev Team).  They joined the developers at Broadband-Hamnet.org and were responsible for porting the BBHN mesh firmware from the WRT54G Linksys routers to the more robust Ubiquiti and TP-Link hardware platforms.  This allowed operating in the HAM only portion of the 2.4 GHz band (something the Linksys routers are not capable of doing).  They also opened up the 3 GHz and 5 GHz bands to mesh networking by using the Ubiquiti hardware.  The HSMMDev Team (now the AREND Dev Team) were also responsible for implementing the tunneling protocol that allows isoated mesh nodes to connect to each other over the internet.  Read more...  

SAREDN

SAREDN is a group of software developers, system integrates, RF site owners, and representatives from most of the counties in Southern California that are working together to build a high speed microwave backbone to link mesh networks from "the Mexican boarder to the San Jose bay area".  As yet, SAREDN does not have a public website.
