Project: Metro wireless network in Petit-Goave, Haiti

Technologies: Ubiquiti Wireless, 802.11, WiMax, SonicWall

As part of a missions project following the Haiti earthquake of 2010, staff helped design a network to link together five sites in Petit-Goave, and share a single WiMax internet connection with an EV-DO backup link. The deployed solution consisted of Ubiquiti 900MHz radios to link sites up to a mile away through dense tropical foliage. At each site, a small Ubiquiti access point provided local WiFi access. Internet access and security via Sonicwall firewalls.
