Bristol Wireless is pleased to announce that funding has been secured for 2 years to keep the network running courtesy of the University of the West of England (UWE) and High Tech Bristol & Bath CIC.
The funding will be used to ensure the Bristol Wireless volunteers can continue to operate the network – including maintenance, licensing and the like – and provide a tesbed for IoT devices using the LoraWAN media access protocol.
Two of our network nodes already feature LoraWAN gateways and Bristol also plan to purchase some LoraWAN devices of our own (just so we’re not left behind in this new branch of communications technology. Ed.)
We’d especially like to express our thanks to Ben Glaster of UWE and John Bradford of High Tech Bristol & Bath CIC for their generosity, as well as to Tarim from Bristol Hackspace for all his help is securing these monies and a further two years of Bristol Wireless.
