Welcome to the Village Telco Wiki. This site contains documentation on various aspects of Village Telco technology and operation. If you're interested in learning more about actual Village Telco deployments, have a look at the Deployments section of the Village Telco website.
Mesh Node Hardware
There's no vendor lock-in with Village Telco. While we do manufacture the Mesh Potato, we recognise that there are many excellent WiFi manufacturers and for some scenarios, other hardware may be desirable. Accordingly we produce a Village Telco firmware for Ubiquiti and TP-Link hardware. If you have another OpenWRT-compatible device that you would like to see the Village Telco firmware running, please get in touch

Server Options for Village Telco
In the past, Village Telco developed its own server solution which comprised Asterisk and A2Billing with a simplified UI for A2Billing as well as an installation wizard. We haven't been able to continuously update this software combination and it has to some degree now been eclipsed by other options. You can read more about it Archives/Village_Telco_Server of this wiki.
Mesh Network Monitoring
Not to be confused with standard networking monitoring tools like Munin, Nagios, Zabbix, and others, mesh monitoring tools measure the health of the mesh routes on the network. Some of them can do some of the monitoring that standard networking monitoring tools can do but the reverse is not true.
