Prospect Hill Wireless Network

The Harvard Forest has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to build a wireless network across the 400-ha Prospect Hill Tract, providing high-speed network access to a wide range of short and long-term experimental sites. The network will make it possible to monitor and control instruments and to collect and analyze data in real time, effectively creating an "outdoor laboratory and classroom" for researchers and students at Harvard, in the LTER Network, and in the larger scientific and educational community. Design and installation of the network will be completed this year in partnership with Harvard University FAS Network Operations and Silvian Technology Services, a local wireless engineering firm.
