[OLSR-users] Size of Networks
Thu Apr 28 18:26:58 CEST 2005
Wondering about the limits of the size of an olsr network. Running on
486 hardware, what can one expect as a limit to the number of nodes in a
network? I am in the process of setting up 100 soekris boards across a
city, and I am having no problems as of yet. Currently I only have
about 10 nodes up and running.
I understand that the concept of mpr's can handle many nodes very well,
I am just trying to see if there is some sort of limit other then radio
space and the number of hops degrading bandwidth.
For example, on a hypothetical level, if a network were to have 1000
nodes which were placed out over a large geographical area where each
node could reach any other node even if it is over a 10-15 hop count
(fully connected mesh), would the network be viable if you had an hna
node routing 0.0.0.0 every 3 or 4 hops?
