FreedomLab is a collection of networking hardware, compute resources and software to support research & development, testing, education and serve as a proving ground for the FreedomStack.
We aren't developing anything new, but rather evaluating/testing/proving existing software and hardware components and then helping turn them into a turn key community networking solution.
- Continuous integration testing
