'''1. Access point distros'''
specification of distributions, define distribution requirements, distro matrix suggested
start with bewitched, create a list, then discuss additional requirements
start a wiki page and list the current reqs, question the additions, does anybody want to lead the dist specs?, what are the requirements for an ap?
example > can you run captive portal on it?
speakeasy allows setup of public nodes
hold up let's finish agenda items first then technical ops later, requirements specifications, DarrinEden leads this item
'''2. Requirements specification and compare existing distros'''
soekris hardware can run a captive portal in the access point, all in one hardware, essentially 486+linux+radio card+runs host ip, possibly going with minipci or pcmcia (some previous discussion on listserv)
he hears the consensus is for pcmcia, pcmcia cards are lower in cost
discussing hardware model 4521
model 4521 includes two pcmcia slots, minipci and compact flash, additional specs look on soekris site
why don't we use external access points?
Urban is an example of business that already have an access point connected directly to their DSL modem. There is no computer involved so there needs to be a solution provided that allows them to use their access point and PTP captive portal page.
public and private channels can organize quality of service needs
the maximum is 64 megs
clarification > up to 64 megs
'''3. Soekris hardware'''
does soekris allow for easier mass production?
enable people like coffee shops that don't have the time to learn
standardize on 4521 agreed, do we want 200 milliwatt cards? what's the recommended card? (open item)
questions the board used in pioneer square, how many days before the next reboot?
we're not the only ones to use this configuration, what type of compact flash? like sandisk, flashed locally
it is flashed via a prepared cd
we must inform people that assembly required, needs cf card-pigtail-wireless card-antenna, price list see hotspotpackage
all this stuff acquired from netgate
recommends amazon and look for 10 dollar rebate
'''4. PTP equipment inventory tracking'''
this item i'm working on, we're gonna inventory all the hardware
do you need help with the database
probably run on mysql, adam needs to update it
Aaron is on the database team for asset management, clarification > he will help create the table schema
'''5. New node development updates'''
new node development projects discussed
'''6. Tri-Met - T.I.P. MAX line open house and expansion'''
tri-met's t.i.p max line open house and expansion
he's gonna check out the open house in beaverton
it would be cool to get access along the max line
