Colorado Amateur Radio BroadBand Network (CARBBN) is an Amateur Radio club that is attempting to build a high speed IP network throughout the state of Colorado.

CARBBN’s High speed IP network would allow club’s, groups, and other Amateur Radio based groups to connect with each other in a whole new way.

What is a Mesh network?

  • Collection of overlapping nodes in a mesh topology
  • Each node routes traffic to other nodes in the network
  • Self discovering, self configuring, self healing
  • Mesh forms and adapts automatically as it grows
  • Dynamically adjusts to changing resources in the Mesh
  • Routing protocols enable automatic reconfiguration as nodes join the Mesh

What capabilities would the High Speed IP network have?

IP based phones similar to ones used with Allstar technology

VoIP technologies allowing Hams to interact with technologies normally not available to them

File storage for many purposes include EmComm

Software that runs on the Internet today can run on the network indepedently

What do I need to get started?

Getting started is not hard since there is a couple of methods to connect to the CARBBN network.  Check out the following links:
