About the Presentation:
The Free Network Foundation has been working with a global coalition of partners to design/produce/field a turnkey FLOSS access/distribution network technology stack (FreedomStack). This consists of CPE (FreedomNode), neighborhood level infrastructure (FreedomRelay/FreedomTower) and city level
The discussion will include lessons learned, existing deployments ( overbuilding Google Fiber in KC/Austin), technology decisions and questions from the audience.
The Free Network is using a mix of technologies at the media level [masked]g/n/ac, 24ghz (air fiber), 3.65ghz [masked]y). We are also using 802.1x (via Zeroshell) at the access edge (wpa2 enterprise security), OpenVPN for management, pfsense for the WAN edge, qmp.cat for the AP firmware (access/distribution).
The presentation will also cover the overall business model (FNF (ip owner), Nodal (for profit, neighborhood networking kit and professional services), gii (tier2/tier1 backbone connectivity).
About the Speaker:

About the Location:
PARKING: Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.
SECURITY: there is a security desk in the lobby, in case they ask, let them know you're going to Q's office at suite 925.
