The importance of mesh networking in the evolution of telecommunication efficiency has been proven through numerous projects and researchers' literature contributions. All industries and fields rely on reliable communication mediums. In this paper we present the foundation for future research by creating a telecommunication solution using modified Raspberry Pi devices. This project aims to provide solutions for two problems. First, it seeks to instill a viable network alternative in a major catastrophe that is compliant with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations. Second, it aims to create an affordable entertainment platform for impoverished or elderly communities. We additionally provide further discussion points for future research purposes.
