High Speed Internet at the Hacker Lounge

The Open Source Bridge Conference will have a 50mbps microwave uplink backing our powerful wifi network at the 24hr Hacker Lounge, the area open to all attendees for open source collaboration. All of this is thanks to a generous sponsorship from Stephouse Networks.

I had finished most of the logistics work when Tyler Booth, president of Stephouse, came forward with an offer that I couldn’t refuse. After some quick planning, Monday morning I met up with Josh Booth, a Stephouse technician, for the installation of the microwave uplink. Having established line of sight to their NOC he placed the antenna and radio. With a little configuration work we were up and running.

The antenna sits on the roof above 23rd story Alexander’s Restaurant and Lounge in the downtown Hilton. Thank you Stephouse, for delivering premium connectivity to our 24hr Hacker Lounge. So everyone, drop your plans and come Hack on This!
