The next ‘Wireless Battle of the Mesh’ will take place from Wed 2nd till Sun 6th of June in Bracciano (near Rome), Italy. The event aims to bring 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., and OLSR. This third WBM will be improving the testbed conditions for mesh protocols with standardized testing procedures that will be reported after the event for the wireless communities.
On the development side, a flashing tool will be presented to simplify the deployment of such wireless networks based on OpenWrt stable release and packages for each protocol.
If you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an interest in mesh networks you have to check this out!
The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an 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., OLSR, and Static Routing. It
is 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 want to check this out! 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. During the different WBM events, similar hardware and
software configuration will be used based on the OpenWRT BoardSupportPackage
and packages for each protocol implementation. The WBM events are also
a great opportunity to develop testing tools for PHY/MAC radio layers
(drivers, scripts and PHY analyzers).
Google Summer of Code
: The event will also offer opportunities for students and mentors participating in Freifunk Google Summer of Code to meet up and work on projects.
The "tournament" will take place from June 2-6, 2010.
The event will take place in the camping Porticciolo in Bracciano, Italy. along the border of the lake of Bracciano, just North-West of Rome.
Registrations will be available at different hackerspaces (Fusolab, HSBXL, /tmp/lab, metalab, CCC, …) and on the official website for the event at http://battlemesh.org
Every participant needs to donate 50 EUR (this should cover the costs for the camping, and the infrastructure). To finance this event, we ask you to pay when subscribing (paypal, bank transfer or cash).
