We use 2.4 ghz GHz 802.11g or 802.11n wifi WiFi gear with omni or semi-directional antennas to provide connectivity to devices such as laptops and smartphones at street level and within buildings. We are currently using a variety of gear including Ubiquiti Picostation M2 HP and Ubiquiti Bullet M2 HP routers for the outdoor APs.
A high-speed We're currently deploying a wireless backbone for the mesh will be provided by 5 ghz 802.11n hardware, usually with of point -to -point or and point -to -multipoint connections links. These devices are mounted in high places such as on rooftops, flagpoles , or antenna towers. We currently have firmware support for a variety of Ubiquiti M5 (802.11n) routers , such as airgridsNanoBridges, nanobridgesNanoStations, nanostations and a rocketRockets. As of June 2018, we're currently working to establish gigabit links with 5GHz and 24GHz Ubiquiti airFiber routers, as well as 60GHz Microtik wireless wires.
See the [[Mesh/Home and extender nodes|Home and extender nodes]] for more info about how these are setup.
All of the outdoor gear will be is Power over Ethernet (PoE), requiring only a single cable for network and power connectivity.
