Battlemesh v10

The first week of June in Vienna, there will be the tenth edition of the Wireless Battle of the Mesh (WBM). WBM is the most important international community-organized event that gathers all the activists of community networks around the Europe, and lately, also from outside Europe. During the event the developers of the most used open source routing protocols set-up a testbed and “battle” to understand which protocol performs better. It is a great chance for all the devels to debug, exchange ideas and improve their software, but it is also a great chance for all those interested in community networks to enter in contact with other people and exchange experiences.

freifunk endorses the event. People from freifunk will be at the WBM, and we invite everyone interested in community networks to join us in Vienna!
