Current Trends in Community Wireless Networks and Beyond

Aaron Kaplan, Founder, FunkFeuer

Date: Friday, October 30

Time: 12:05 - 12:15 PM

Location: Transformatorhuis

All over Europe we can see innovative, meshed community wireless networks. These range from a couple of hundred nodes to 7000. Most of these networks are built and maintained by users of the network. What are the motivations and driving forces behind these networks? Imagine what a peer2peer built wireless and fibre network can do and offer for its users while running for a fraction of the costs of existing ISP models.

Aaron will talk about the history of community wireless networks, lessons learned and their future directions.

Special focus will be put on the OLSR-NG project which made the OLSR (RFC3626) mesh routing protocol highly scalable.
