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).
AlterMundi endorses and supports the Battle of the Mesh v9 because of the efforts made by its community to advance the field of wireless mesh networking and foster the development of grass-roots community networks.
It’s been three years since we last attended, so we’re eager to reunite again with old friends, and meet new interesting people, strengthening this worldwide community, contributing our South American experience and fostering collaboration. Last time (back in 2013), in the friendly environment that the BattleMesh creates, Libre-Mesh was born, out of this shared desire of summing up efforts. What next? Come join us and find out together!
AlterMundi will support the event by:
- helping to promote the event, as always
- bring members of AlterMundi to the event
- give talks about progress of our group regarding wireless networks
- help design tests scenarios and deploy them during the event
