Packed up the truck and headed off on an adventure. Helped design, set up, and operate the wireless network at Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. About 2 hours north of Reno. In the middle of nowhere.
Spent 6 weeks onsite living in an 8×10 box (with AC!). Helped set up numerous towers, mount and align radios, and ensure the network provided the services we needed. The event network supports the business operations as well as casual access for up to 70,000 people.
Wireless backhaul of 12 miles to the nearest connection to the Internet (which was a microwave link of over 40 miles). Incredible experience working with some of the greatest minds in wireless and networking. Luckily once we had the network operational, we were able to kick back and enjoy the incredible art installations built out there. Once the event was over, we proceeded to tear it all down and pack it away for the next year.
