A tour of the HSMM-Pi web interface. The HSMM-Pi project transforms a
Raspberry Pi into a High-Speed Multimedia (HSMM) wireless mesh node.
The web interface of HSMM-Pi greatly simplifies the process of creating
the most common types of mesh nodes.
Way back in the version 1.0 days there was a way to load the BBHN 1.0 software on
a Raspberry Pi and use it as a BBHN Node... Has that process expanded to version
3.1 and if so... Where do I find it???
The reason I want it is I want to build a mobile BBHN Node for my car... and I want to
be able to expand the BBHN in places where using a Raspberry Pi could be advantageous.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
Mesh Networking Over Ham Radio, HSMM Broadband Hamnet
Getting started in Broadband Hamnet, previously known as HSMM-MESH
networking for amateur radio. As amateur radio operators we have our own
"Internet like" backbone, for emergency communications or for fun. It
is very useful and can be deployed for a lot less money than you think.
Check out this video to learn all about it and a future video sometime
when I get it operational at my QTH.
Operating a SharkRF Openspot over a MESH Network:
Today Darryl, K5DLQ, and I connect our MESH nodes together over an
internet tunnel (this simulates a true over-the-air MESH network
connection that isn’t possible due to the distance that Darryl and I are
from each other) and connect our SharkRF Openspot devices together,
then perform a short QSO.
The SharkRF Openspot has been one of
the most popular DV hotspots, allowing connection into the DMR, DSTAR
and YSF networks. Today Darryl and I setup the SharkRF Server/Client
option in the Openspot menu, then we use our DMR radios to communicate
through each of our Openspot units (his being a server, and mine being a
client which connects to his IP on the MESH network).
This can be a great tool for using MESH networking to allow connection of non-MESH devices onto the network.
Amateur Radio Operators have access to frequencies in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. This video is an introduction to HSMM-MESH or newly called Broadband-Hamnet.
You take off the shelf FCC part 15 Access Point/Routers, upload some firmware and turn these devices into a broadband mesh network for use in the Amateur Radio service. This is cools stuff.

Mesh networks are not just experimental network architectures — they are actively being used to connect devices in a decentralized way. This video explains how mesh networks work, and how the concept can be employed more broadly.
