The Mesh in Bo-Kaap

bullet1 Red Potato: An integrated Telco Platform for human beings!

Published: 22 Oct 2010

It has been two weeks of hard work in the Village Telco Camp and all the pieces of the Village Telco architecture start to fit into place. As part of the validation of the platform, fifteen wireless nodes have been installed in Bo-Kaap and we expect a total of 100 nodes in the network before the end the year.

Two major milestones of the integration are now completed:

Scalabity: The server includes support for Asterisk Realtime and our Installation wizard install a server in less than 5 minutes.

Autoprovisioning: First round of real testing of SIP auto-provisioning is giving good results. We are getting closer to a scenario where a mesh potato can be put into the network and auto-configures without intervention.

It is a very special feeling to see a system that starts to behave in the way I always dreamed about!
