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 Monday 12th to Sunday 18th of May 2014 in Leipzig, Germany at the Sublab, a very cool local hackerspace.
AlterMundi endorses and supports the Battle of the Mesh v7 because of the efforts made by its community to advance the field of wireless mesh networking and foster the development of grassroots community networks.
While this year we’ll be unfortunately unable to participate in person, we’ll support the event in the following ways:
- help to promote the event
- prepare the testbed firmware in advance, as part of the firmware team
- design meaningful tests that can be run during the event
