The High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN), a University of California San Diego partnership project led by the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, supports Internet-data applications in the research, education, and public safety realms.

HPWREN functions as a collaborative, Internet-connected cyberinfrastructure. The project supports a high-bandwidth wireless backbone and access data network in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties in areas that are typically not well-served by other technologies to reach the Internet. This includes backbone locations, typically sited on mountain tops, to connect often hard-to-reach areas in the remote Southern California back country.

2020 HPWREN Accomplishments Including One Year Under Covid

April 5, 2021

2020 was a year to remember for HPWREN and everyone else. The first two and a half months were fairly normal with routine maintenance and upkeep to maintain services through the winter months when generally there is little fieldwork. One significant accomplishment was the installation of the SDGE supported San Juan Hills site including ALERTWildfire and HPWREN cameras in January 2020.

Fires, weather conditions, flooding, and other public safety conditions are scenarios where real-time sensor data distributions can become important aspects for situational awareness. HPWREN can now provide live feeds from most of its cameras, in addition to the post-processed videos shown at:
