How can I participate in the Althea Network?
Example of a revenue share and roles in an Althea Network.
There are four roles in an Althea network:
Bandwidth provider: Bandwidth providers play a passive role by running an Althea Node. They purchase a wholesale internet connection or serve as a middle mile provider and connect to an Althea Network.
Relay: Providing real estate and an Althea node which forwards bandwidth.
Network operator: A network operator gets paid for supporting and installing users (on a daily "uptime" basis) from live routers in the network. This role is supported by the Network Operations Center.
Network Operations Center: A Network Operations Center (NOC) is run by companies who support the operators with technical support, logistics and planning. Currently Althea’s parent corporation Hawk Networks is the primary NOC, but we anticipate an ecosystem to grow.**
