I have a working prototype of a sequence number based retransmission system
compatible with normal OLSR. Each nodes sends ttl 1 beacons with ANSN-
number/originator-ip combinations. Nodes that detect a neighbor with more
recent data can ask the neighbor to reconstruct the TC message and flood it
This should help to reduce the number of flodded messages by a HUGE number. It
has options for variable timings (only send TCs if it's necessary) and some
"quickstart effect" (starting nodes can aquire the necessary topology data by
It will need a little bit more work, but the experiments in VMs showed nice
