The goal of the project is to develop a modular system that allows connecting and expanding coverage for the interconnection of communities that do not have access to the Internet. Thus, the project will develop technology and conduct a study to design and build a programmable device that operates as a powerful router, allowing the interconnection of devices to share a single connection, or as a router to connect to the Internet. The device will be developed using open source firmware based on low-cost hardware and new algorithms for achieving greater Internet coverage, as well as an innovative use of programmable radio technology. This technology offers flexibility to modify and optimize the operation of the various systems that make up the proposed device. In turn, this allows expanding the connection to the Internet or increasing intranet coverage, since the fact that it can be programmed using free software means that the device will be adaptable. A key part of the design consists of implementing algorithm variants based on the OFDM modulation method. Together with spatial diversity techniques such as MIMO, these algorithms seek to achieve a broad coverage of data transmission, improved transmission speed and quality of service.
