Technical information

WiND is written in PHP and uses a MySQL backend for storing the data. Smarty is used as the template engine.


* Supports multiple users and multiple nodes per user
* User management: different access rights for each job
* Stores all the node information a Wireless MAN will need: location, height, area, region, backbone & AP interfaces, roof view photos, subnets & hosts in a node etc.
* Provides an easy (but powerful) way of searching for specific nodes
* Using NASA's SRTM data, it graphs the "Line of Sight" (and "Fresnel zone") between two nodes and calculates "Free space loss" for the distance between them
* Uses Google Maps to show the nodes and their links on the map.
* Can be used to manage the distribution of IP Ranges and forward/reverse DNS assigned to each node ("Hostmaster")
* Fully themeable interface (using simple (X)HTML templates)
* Support for L10n localization; Unicode/UTF-8 support
* Integrates with BIND Nameserver for serving the DNS zones, PowerDNS integration planned
* A WHOIS server is provided that serves the data using the WHOIS protocol

Future Plans

* Installation page
* Administration page (SRTM file upload)
* Peer notification on new link creation (BB or client)
* Monitoring links using graphs (snmp data)
* Monitoring of IP layer (pings, latency etc)
* Radio coverage (Google maps, Google earth)
* PowerDNS integration
* Statistics (new nodes, new links)
* Action logging
