Our History

ARRA Milestones

Our decentralized last-mile infrastructure incorporates a plug and play platform that dramatically reduces the cost of delivering broadband to new areas. This is a complete solution with built-in billing, automated network management, and regulatory compliance.

2012
Initial research begins at the Mesh Network Laboratory of Cambridge University
2016
  • Chainreactor (rebranded in 2019 as ARRA) is formed around the design team
  • focused on developing mesh network technology associated with Blockchain
2017
  • Mesh Network Laboratory goes private leaving Cambridge
  • Spectramesh is founded to assume mesh WIFI design responsibilities, Chainreactor/ARRA continues as the Sales entity
2018
Mesh technology enters the market using TV White Space (TVWS) with extended range of 8-10 miles.
2019
  • Refocused on 2.4 & 5GHz mesh technology, solidifying both our unique mesh technology and the Network Management System (NMS)
  • Modular board designed to incorporate multi-spectrum capability
2020
  • Finalized the router design
  • Received FCC certification for the Industrial Mesh Router
  • Completed integrating worldwide billing systems
  • Demonstrations across the globe, resulting in sales in five countries and the U.S.

What we strive towards

Mission & Technology

ARRA Networks Mission is to dramatically reduce the CAPEX and OPEX costs to enable cost effective Broadband Access for underserved urban, rural and Industrial IOT/Precision AG markets.

ARRA accomplishes this by seamlessly integrating FOUR technologies together in their Wireless Mesh Router Solutions:

ARRA mission
1

Innovative Blockchain-based decentralized Network Management and Billing System with full and accurate Local Taxation Support.​

Vertical Dots
2

Open Source Wireless Mesh Technology with SON for automated provisioning that enables multiple hops with less than 2% bandwidth loss per hop supporting Industrial Scaling.

Vertical Dots
3

Fractal Antennas with AI to extend the coverage.

Vertical Dots
4

Full modular support for all wireless spectrum to ensure a future proof, cost effective spectrum support design.

The Network Operator wraps their Offers and their IP Backhaul from their Cell Towers, Small Cells or Satellite IP Service to deploy the ARRA Networks Industrial Mesh Network as an element of their Broadband Solution/Offer at upwards of 10-20% of the current network CAPEX/OPEX cost enabling more cost-effective offers for Work-at-Home/Learn-at-Home/Telemedicine and Industrial IOT/Precision AG opportunities.

Our Strategic Partnerships

Who We Serve

While the applications for our long-range, self-healing, and monetized mesh WIFI routers are innumerable, our target markets have resolved into six main deployment schemas:

  • U.S. based rural ISP’s and COOP’s ​- the demand for connectivity to farms and the small-town USA is enormous and is supported by several large federal and state funding initiatives. Our platform provides an economical – yet high-profit complement to trenching fiber backhaul down every country road in America. We have had significant interest from a number of small to large telcos and ISPs, and are beginning to negotiate terms with two organizations.
  • Government sponsored WIFI distribution in underserved communities outside of the U.S. While the economic layer is an attractive option in these use-cases as it enables micro-economies, it isn’t a necessary component for success when funding is provided by NGOs or charitable organizations. World Bank Funding to Uganda is a prime example of this type of deployment.

  • Sales of both routers and backhaul by ​existing international Telcos​ or other organizations (perhaps established for this purpose) in specific territorial markets. License and exclusivity fees precede router sales but guarantee an entity's rights to market the technology within their region.
  • US​ ​State, Federal, and military sales​. Applications that we are pursuing include; military training support, Border Wall augmentation for connectivity and sensor data retrieval/management, emergency response at FEMA, tactical and operational deployment, etc.
  • Urban 5G deployment (domestic and international)
  • Schools and Education Connectivity
    (Domestic and International)
