Coming from the NANO what can we expect?

Recommended Posts

I've been enjoying and getting used to the NANO, what can we expect differently in the TETRA? What I know of ....

  • 2.5GHz & 5GHz
  • Four antennas compared to two - what is the function of each of them? Is one available for connecting to an AP without taking from other functionality.
  • Ethernet - what tricks can we use this for?
  • No SD card I think, but various USB ports which can be used how?
  • Will it be using the same firmware base as the NANO?

Hi hackattack,

  • Correct
  • There are two antennas per radio (2x2 MIMO). This does not give you an extra radio for clientmode
  • The WiFi Pineapple TETRA has two ethernet ports. One classic one, and one over one of the micro USB ports
  • No SD card, but 2GB internal storage. If you want more, a USB stick will do the trick.
  • Very similar. Same interface, and same base features, but of course with added 5GHz things down the line.

The TETRA is also a lot faster (NAND flash, newer MIPS architecture, 533MHz CPU), and the radios are a lot more powerful (4 discreet amplifiers).

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

Thanks Seb for the clarification. With MIMO on both radios the range should be fantastic.

So one of the micro-USB is for a second ethernet (I guess it would be via a OTG host cable?), what is the second micro-USB for, power?

The ethernet port was put there to connect to a headless Raspberry Pi running Kali.

Right? ?

You can connect a Pi over a traditional Ethernet cable or a Micro USB table to the onboard USB Ethernet controller. Similarly we are working on an ARM "WiFi Pineapple Core" device which will interface with the TETRA and NANO.

I was thinking about getting a CanaKit Raspberry Pi 2 Complete Starter Kit but since you say that do you think I'd be better off just waiting for your device? When do you expect to be rolling this device out? Can you tell us more about it?

TIA

6-10 months is my guess but this stuff is really hard to gauge.

10-4 / Understand. Appreciate the quick reply.

I'm sure I'll get the unit you're developing regardless :grin: so I may as well get a Pi now too, I like me some tinkering.. :grin: :grin:

Thanks Darren.

The ARM device sounds pretty interesting.

Can you comment further on its capabilities, or is it still too far out?
