BattleMeshV4

We would like to give to the 'Battle of the Mesh' the flavour of a tournament with a social character. If you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an interest in mesh networks you might find this bunch of crazy folks gathering for the Wireless Battle of the Mesh V4 very interesting. This event is also an opportunity to meet developers from the most popular open source mesh protocol implementations (Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N. L3 and L2, BMX, OLSR) and watch their ideas compete. If you have implemented an interesting mesh protocol capable of running on OpenWrt Kamikaze you can take part to the tournament.

RESULTS

The results and the material produced at the event will be available online through the rsync protocol:

What

In brief: we will deploy a wireless mesh network over the neighbourhood, run different routing protocols on top of it, perform some tests and see which routing protocol behaves better.
