County-wide Communications Exercise - Mesh Networking

Date: 04/12/14 Start: 8:00 AM End: 2:00 PM Location: Edith Morley Park, Campbell
MAC Credit (What's this?): No

Overall Event:  This is a county-wide exercise focused on emergency communications.  It is designed to provide participants with valuable in-field operating experience.  It will include several fun and challenging assignments.  Of course, standard County procedures will be used:  Resource Net, ICS documentation, Performance Standard and Best Practices.

Mesh Activity:  This activity will give you the opportunity to learn about and experiment with mesh networking. 

You don’t have to buy or bring anything.  You can just come and observe and try out the demo equipment that others will bring.

But if you DO want to bring a node, server, IP camera, or VOIP phone; bring it out and get a little experience setting it up by connecting to the drill network.

(Note:  be sure you can operate on batteries because the drill will operate completely “off the grid”).

Sign-ups:.You can sign up for this activity in addition to other drill activities.  If you want to do this and two other activities you will need to arrive at staging by 8:00 am.  If this is the only activity that you take part in, you WILL NOT receive MAC credit for the drill.  You will however still need to use the Resource Net for travel to and from the drill.

You will received MAC credit for the drill if you take part in at least one other activity.
