Call for Participants

We are pleased to announce that the /tmp/lab will be organizing a Spring Wireless OpenWrt Mesh Contest called “Wireless Battle Mesh” during 2 days (April 11-12th) with the goal of building 3 wireless mesh networks based on embedded hardware running OpenWrt and different concurrent mesh routing protocols.

The targeted architecture will be 3 networks of 25nodes + 1 wireless management network (10-20 nodes) to achieve realistic size of nodes number, data traffic, configuration problems. The architecture will be set-up indoor and outdoor around the building of the /tmp/lab.

OpenWrt will be the selected for the BoardSupportPackage running on the different hardware nodes and a core network configuration will be built on Linux servers with user-friendly features such as :

  • VLANs
  • Captive portal
  • Authentication
  • Admin portal

Concerning the mesh-protocols, selected targeted protocols are :

Concerning the hardware node, we are looking for hardware sponsors that could enjoy this “real-case” contest by providing 50-100 nodes to the event. This sponsor will be actually displayed on the organization website as well as during the event. The feedbacks for the hardware manufacturers can be not only from the users but also from the network community running real-case test (academic- or community-wide).

The TMPLAB core team.

Hardware platforms

We managed to get sponsoring for such hardware :

  • Linksys WRT54G/GS
  • Asus WL500G Deluxe/Premium
  • Fon Fonera

Software platform

The different software versions in use during the Wireless Battle Mesh are :

  • babel-0.93, there's also a page about [Babel]
  • olsrd-0.5.6-r4
  • batman-adv-r1220

OpenWrt should be Kamikaze 8.09. Broadcom-based hardware should be using the brcm-2.4 image while Atheros-based hardware should be using the atheros target.
