Wireless Battlemesh 2014 upcoming

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. It originally started from a strong discussion between OLSR.org (Aaron) and Batman (Electra) some years ago about the merits of different approaches. So, in in 2009, the first "WBM" event took place with the goal of trying out different protocols and comparing them in a testbed.

Since then, many years have passed, the protocols have developed, become more specialised (Batman-adv was born and is now on layer 2 and not 3 anymore). The "WBM" event however still brings together people from wireless community events and mesh protocols.

If you are interested in dynamic routing protocols or wireless community networks the WBM might be just for you.

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.

OLSR.org 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.
