In this report we have presented the network architecture of the long-range WindScanner
system that allows utilization of mobile network connections without the use of static public
IP addresses. The architecture mitigates the issues of additional fees and contractual
obligations that are linked to the acquisition of the mobile network connections with static
public IP addresses. The architecture consists of a hardware VPN solution based on the
network appliances Z1 and MX60 from Cisco Meraki with additional 3G or 4G dongles.
With the presented network architecture and appropriate configuration, we fulfill the requirements
of running the long-range WindScanner system using a mobile network such
as 3G. This architecture allows us to have the WindScanners and the master computer in different geographical locations, and in general facilitates deployments of the long-range WindScanner system.
