When we deploy one laptop per child, we must also provide additional infrastructure extending the capabilities of the laptops. While the laptops are largely self-sufficient, a mesh portal providing connectivity and shared resources greatly extends their utility.

These persistent services required by OLPC laptops could conceivably be implemented in a fully distributed manner. They are , however, currently provided more economically by a centralized local resource, the school server. The functions provided by this server are open to debate, but at a minimum they include internet communication and storage resources to the school's wireless mesh.
