General Notes

The increasing requirements from our served agencies for high speed data are pushing us toward mesh.  Video and large scale missing persons tracking are data intensive.  IP phones are supported. 

We are using Ubiquiti equipment on 5GHz 802.11a/n, with OpenWRT and OLSR.  We do our own device programming so are not beholden to any other groups.  The data rate is around 10 megabits.  No license is needed so we can support strong encryption and multple agencies and data streams at once. 

The mesh network is Internet risk /outage free. 

11/27/19: Plans include a link to Bloomington.  More sites are needed in Minneapolis and southern downtown St Paul.  Live video was tested in November- see the photo at right.  
8/2/19: The Minneapolis to St Paul mesh link is installed
