  • SOWN[at]HOME Nodes
    • Halls' Bars' nodes (daveruss)
      • No progress
    • Chamberlain Node (daveruss)
      • This appears to have been fixed. The node has not been rebooted since
    • New node deployments (crwilliams)
      • No progress
    • Buying new nodes (Davetaz)
      • We would like to buy one or two 802.11n nodes.
      • We would also like to buy a couple of OpenMesh nodes.

  • Node in Building 2A lecture theatre H (Tyler)
    • This now has the go-ahead from ECS. ECS have agreed to fund this. We need to liaise with the relevant people, and probably speak to StageSoc regarding deploying in the projection room.

  • N-nodes (Tyler)
    • There are a few N-nodes that may be suitable, but we need to investigate what radio chipsets they have.
      • Linksys WRT160N, WRT350N are unsuitable due to use of Broadcom chip.

  • Davetaz's points
    • Ideas for projects and potential funding
      • 'Location Awareness'
        • 'Exam Room' Scenario - blocking access to wifi network based on location.
      • 'Location Tracking'
        • Providing details of the user's location, etc.
      • 'VLANs'
        • Investigating pushing out a number of VLANs to the nodes, tunnelling them to different places. Essentially this will allow us to provide the eduroam VLAN to the nodes.

  • Admin Tasks
    • Leth has been working on Object Relational Model for SOWN

  • Planning for this weekend's workshop
    • The task list (above) has been updated.

  • AOB
    • We are considering virtualising Sown-dev so that we can restore if necessary.
