Wireless Battle Mesh

The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims at bringing together people from across the world to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX6, OLSR, 802.11s and Static Routing.

It is a tournament with a social character. If you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an interest in mesh networks you might want to check this out!

The goal of the WirelessBattleMesh events is to set-up hands-on testbed for each available mesh routing protocol with a standard test procedure for the different mesh networks. During the different WBM events, similar hardware and software configuration will be used based on the OpenWRT BoardSupportPackage and packages for each protocol implementation. The WBM events are also a great opportunity to develop testing tools for PHY/MAC radio layers (drivers, scripts and PHY analyzers).

Upcoming Event

See you at WBMv13 in 2020!

WBM is going virtual!

After some months of reconsideration, we have concluded that it would be kinda difficult to do the WBMv13 in person this year :..( But our mission can't be shutdown by mere 7.5 kilobytes of RNA - there will be a dedicated mesh developer/community event in 2020!

The idea is to put together a schedule of around 10 interesting presentations, via BigBlueButton (streamcopied to Peertube/YouTube) and a set of topic-based rooms on a voice chat server (mumble).

We could also use this event to try running distributed experiments. For now things are stil flexible - we can change this model according to the expected number of participants.

Next Steps:

1) Please help us find out how many participants we can expect for a small online event that spans over 2 half-days during a weekend in November. by marking your preferred date here [1]

2) Please help us spread the word by forwarding this call to your local communities!

All the best,
