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.

Unboxing Routers on the Table at Battlemesh event
some from Wireless Communities worldwide met in Aalborg University to have a whole week to make test for some routing protocols, that are able to make wifi communications possible for mesh networking. these are some cuts from interviews with that people at the last night, when they were going out for party and to sum up that week.
The Battlemesh event that aims at bringing together people from across Europe to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, OLSR, 802.11s and Static Routing. It is a tournament with a social character. The goal of the WirelessBattleMesh events is to set-up hands-on testbed for each available mesh routing protocol with a standard test procedure for the different mesh networks.
Wireless Battle Mesh v5 is at hand and it is time to bring together the agenda. As last year’s attempts to construct an agenda was well received and provided the grounds for numerous healthy discussions the broad majority asked for similar action. However, the number of talks is going to be reduced to leave more time for individual discussions and testing.
