FabFi FlashFlood

It's been a while since I last updated, but that doesn't mean we haven't been hard at work. The Distribution is largely complete, the website is up, and we have a new link in JBad at the IOC School. That makes 5 links overall in JBad.

This new link is running the newest revision of the X-Small reflector, which wasn't even field tested before this install. We're running a reliable connection at -70dBm (about 25dBm out of the noise). I don't have any intel here in the states on the pointing or obstructions, so I can't say anything about gain, but it works, so no complaints here. Click for pics.

The newest SW distribution includes a fully updated auto-config script that makes configuring routers a process of only a couple minutes, and a self-diagnostic and logging feature.

We also have a newly implemented testbed in Cambridge to test new hardware and software before sending it into the field. Next up, real time stats?
