This project seeks to provide continuity to the LibreRouter stack, a series of hardware, software, documentation, and audiovisual support designed to technically and socially facilitate the development, deployment, management, and expansion of community networks. LibreRouter was created with funding provided by FRIDA and was the first project to be selected in two regions (the second being Africa – FIRE). As a result of its success over the years, communities on all continents are choosing to use this technology today.
The goal of this project is to redesign LibreRouter with state-of-the-art technology, as this will allow: (i) avoiding the decreased availability of LibreRouter V1.0 components, which has a negative impact on its cost and production times; (ii) taking a qualitative leap in terms of performance and energy efficiency, so that, in the future, this can continue to be a high-performance option; and (iii) incorporating changes that have been identified over years of deployment experiences in various scenarios.
