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 Sunday 1st to Saturday 7th of May 2016 in Porto, Portugal. The event is locally organized by INESC TEC, Porto, Portugal. INESC TEC stands for Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science and is a private non-profit research & development institute located on the campus of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (Portugal).
The Wireless Community Weekend 2016 is following this event directly and takes place from 6th to 8th May at the c-base in Berlin.
freifunk.net endorses and supports the Battle of the Mesh v9 because of the efforts made by its community to improve OpenWRT, wifi tools and modern dynamic routing protocols.
freifunk will support the event by sending some developers to the event to help setting up the testbed, documenting results and running tests.
Many other communities endorse and support the Wireless Battle of The Mesh v9 and an up to date list of the endorsers of the Battlemesh v9 can be found at the main Battlemesh website.
