The Birmingham Solar-Oscillations Network (BiSON) has been operating with a full complement of six stations since 1992. Almost 25 years later, we look back on the network history. The meta-data from the sites have been analysed to assess performance in terms of site insolation, with a brief look at the challenges that have been encountered over the years. We discuss how to access the ever-growing dataset produced by the network, and finally look to the future of the network and the potential impact of 25 years of technology miniaturisation.
