The “Wireless Battle of the Mesh” is an event that aims to bring together people from across the globe to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, OLSR, and 802.11s.
Many developers and community networkers will join the event to hack, test, discuss, explain and learn.
If you are interested in dynamic routing protocols or wireless community networks you can’t miss this event!
The battlemesh is free of charge and open for all, every year we strive to keep participation costs low by negotiating deals for accommodation and food.
This year the event will take place from 3rd to 9th August 2015 in Maribor, Slovenia and will be hosted by Wlan Slovenia.
freifunk.net endorses and supports the Battle of the Mesh v8 because it’s a great opportunity to meet all the developers and community network activists at one place. Our communities take benefits directly from results of the battle. The battlemesh gives us help and inspiration for further development of our firmwares and all the communities.
freifunk.net will support the event by:

- bring members of the community to the event
- give talks about advancement of our community in certain aspects
- provide hardware for the routing protocol testing
- collect donations and will donate some money to the organizers
