1. Install and configure ARDEN software on all node radios, such as the 900MHz, 2.4GHz, 3.4GHz, and 5.8GHz band types.
  2. Conduct site surveys for possible antenna deployments locations, and then test node radios for adequate signal strengths and reliability.
  3. Configure and test the Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) settings for Device-to-Device (DtD) communications over the Ubiquiti ToughSwitch (8-Port-POE) and network segmentation.
  4. Identify, install, configure, and test applications and services on Raspberry Pi3 server(s) for anticipated ECOMM deployments.
  5. Configure and test the Ubiquiti 5-Port-POE EdgeRouter and/or UniFi Security Gateway (USG) for anticipated network security threats.
  6. Configure and test both the fixed and mobile internet connections for anticipated ECOMM deployments.
  7. Deploy and test mobile relay nodes for extending network backbone capabilities in difficult terrain, vegetation, distances, or weather conditions.
  8. Identify battery power requirements and conduct battery life estimations under heavy and normal node radio, including off-grid usage.
  9. Configure and test AREDN server and client tunnels with other interested groups (i.e. ARES, RACES, etc.) for anticipated ECOMM deployments.
  10. Develop configuration guidelines, operating procedures, and other documentation for emergency and field use.
  11. Develop Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) regarding technical and operational topics to build PDX metro area expertise.
