TIMEPLAN OLSR-NG WORKSHOP
14:00 opening, general intro, what is freifunk, what is funkfeuer, what is OLSR-NG ? problem description
15:15 intro into OLSR and other MANET protocols (same presentation
as dec 2006)
16:15 Detailed Description of the olsr.org algorithms and currently
implemented improvements (ETX,fisheye)
16:45 Code demonstration & analysis (by Bernd Petrovitsch)
17:30 Details of new algorithm ideas... forming of groups for special
19:00 going out to a typical "Schnitzelhaus" (Adlerhof, Burggasse 51
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
NG project presentation.
* Location: http://www.metalab.at/wiki/LageWho 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 additionWhat is OLSR-NG?
Worldwide, many community WLAN networks work with OLSR (RFC 3626) as
a base internal routing protocol (c.f. www.olsr.org
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 netidee IPA
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 rewardedThe central goals of OLSR-NG are:
with money prizes in addition <<<
- scalability: we want to scale up to 1000+ nodes (real world, not simulation 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 (+security audit)
- 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 netidee NIC.AT
