Community mesh networking

Ubiquitous wireless mesh clouds with olsrd from olsr.org

Olsr.org's improved algorithm (compared to the initial INRIA OLSR draft) and how it may influence the development of ubiquitous free wireless networks.

The Optimized Link State Routing Deamon - olsrd - from olsr.org is a routing application developed by community networking activists for wireless mesh networks. It is a open-source project that supports Mac OS-X, Window$ 98, 2000, XP, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD. The application is available for Accesspoints that run Linux like the Linksys WRT54G, Asus Wl500g, Asus Wireles Harddrive, 4G Access Cube or Pocket PCs running Familiar Linux.

Olsrd is a tremendous success. Community Wifi Networks all over the world are using olsrd now - in South Africa, Europe, Asia, Nepal, to mention a few. Rumours say that the most prominent person that communicates using olsrd at the moment is the Dalai Lama in exile...

I will show what is going on in olsrd, where we are heading to with the protocol, what you can actually do with it now and what are the differences to the initial INRIA OLSR draft.
