[olsr-dev] OLSR-NG kickoff
Wed Jan 24 12:29:18 CET 2007
we - http://www.funkfeuer.at - a free wireless community network
in Vienna - are proud to announce our first official olsr-ng
workshop. If you happen to be around in Vienna on
* Saturday, 27th of January
* 14:00 - 18:00 (going out & party afterwards, open end)
then feel invited to join us at our http://olsr.funkfeuer.at - OLSR-
NG project presentation.
* Location: http://www.metalab.at/wiki/Lage
Who should attend?
* Researchers and students of computer sciences or similar fields who
are interested in working in the field of mobile ad-hoc networks
* You should be good at C programming in addition
What is OLSR-NG?
Worldwide, many community WLAN networks work with OLSR (RFC 3626) as
a base internal routing protocol (c.f. www.olsr.org for a
However the most commonly used implementation from olsr.org has -
although it is very adaptable and in fact was adapted many times - a
few drawbacks which we can notice in real existing WLAN community
Thanks to our sponsor www.netidee.at (IPA/www.nic.at) we are able to launch a
bounty competition for enhancing OLSR. We call this new project "OLSR-
NG" (next generation). But you can substitute any name you like -
batman-olsrmix or whatever. The point being:
>> The very best approaches and patches for OLSR will be rewarded
with money prizes in addition <<<
The central goals of OLSR-NG are:
* scalability: we want to scale up to 1000+ nodes (real world, not
if possible. Simulations will be helpful but won't count.
* improve and/or replace the basic algorithms (fisheye/ETX/MPR/...)
* improve the C code for the current olsr.org implementation
* write a new RFC from the results we have learned .
Details will be presented on Saturday, 27th. of Jan. (language will
be english for international guests)
Thanks go to funkfeuer.at and especially www.netidee.at (NIC.AT /IPA) who
made this possible.
