About the Presentation:

The Free Network Foundation has been working with a global coalition of partners to design/produce/field a turnkey FLOSS access/distribution network technology stack (FreedomStack). This consists of CPE (FreedomNode), neighborhood level infrastructure (FreedomRelay/FreedomTower) and city level

The discussion will include lessons learned, existing deployments ( overbuilding Google Fiber in KC/Austin), technology decisions and questions from the audience.

The Free Network is using a mix of technologies at the media level (802.11g/n/ac, 24ghz (air fiber), 3.65ghz (802.11y). We are also using 802.1x (via Zeroshell) at the access edge (wpa2 enterprise security), OpenVPN for management, pfsense for the WAN edge, qmp.cat for the AP firmware (access/distribution).
