This blog has been set up as a place for notes and field data collected as part of the Portable WLAN project.
Mark O’Leary and his colleagues at JANET are running a Portable WLAN Programme to investigate options for extending network access to off-the-grid locations. As part of that programme we’re looking at ways in which a portable wireless local area network can be used to support fieldwork courses, and potential options for connecting the local network to the internet in order to provide internet access for field students as well as field access for remote students and tutors on the internet.
This work builds on and contributes to our ongoing research in the Enabling Remote Activity project.
