VA4WAN – continued progress

A large contingent of hams scaled the 55 Nassau building last Sunday.  Accompanying us was our ISP provider Les from les.net (who coincidentally happens to also be a ham) and with us was a large external enclosure and some new RF gear — a spanking new Air Fiber 24GHz unit!  So the point of this visit is to replace the existing link with this new hot one.  With one radio already setup at the base and this one being installed, the speed will be over 1Gbps duplex 🙂

SO – how fast can this this transfer data?  How about 800Mbps sustained!  Now that’s quite a data feed for our little radio setup – and that’s without tweaking the configuration.

We have more work to do on the network configuration/management end of things, but it’s all good working forwards.

The effort now is to bridge this connection to remote points of the city and outside to provide services to hams and ham groups.

Stay tuned!
