Major Tasks for 2016

  • New SOWN node firmware
    • Running OpenWRT Designated Driver
    • Cmalton has pretty much built all the firmware needed for at least 4 different pieces of hardware:
      • Meraki Mini
      • OM1P
      • OM2P
      • AR150
    • Node setup infrastructure to make node setup easier using requests and returned tarballs to/from

  • New server builds as VMs
    • Create on Sown-vms using Kickstart and Puppet
    • Need builds for the following:
      • RADIUS
      • Backup
      • Admin site
      • OpenVPN
      • Bind
      • Monitoring (Icinga)
      • any more?

  • Build new SOWN-Zepler (or Zacler)
    • Using APU board and Wireless AC card from
    • Another wireless b/g/n Mini PCI-e card
    • Mini PCIe SSD drive

  • SOWN[at]anywhere
    • AR150s ideal for this purpose

  • Build SOWN[at]coordinates node
    • Dependent on mast project
    • Mount a board of some description in an outdoor box on the dish
    • We have a 5GHz dish already!
      • But we'd need to have a 5GHz node first, so this idea probably is blocking on a moderately successful SOWN Zenler/Zacler

  • SOWN Eduroam extender
    • Use nodes as receiver for Eduroam back link when near campus.

Wiki Upgrade

  • Wiki has been upgraded to MediaWiki 1.26.2
    • Still a few teething problems with Semantic Forms.
