The B.A.T.M.A.N. project endorses "Mesh is in the air"

Added by Simon Wunderlich almost 6 years ago

The B.A.T.M.A.N. project endorses "Mesh is in the air" - this year mesh up of the "Wireless Battle of the Mesh" and "Wireless Community Weekend".

We keep the approach to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks and combine it with the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the yearly Freifunk community get together. The mix becomes a global gathering of wifi tech experts, mesh developers and community networkers that join the event to hack, test, discuss, explain, learn and barbecue at c-base, Berlins famous hack-space-station.

If you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community activist, have an interest in wifi or dynamic routing protocols, you can't miss this event! So check out our continuously updated information about the event at

The battlemesh is free of charge and open for all, every year we strive to keep participation costs low by negotiating deals for accommodation and food.

This year the event will take place from Monday 7th to Sunday 13th of May, 2018 in Berlin, Germany. The event is locally organized by Freifunk, Germany's community wireless network.

The B.A.T.M.A.N. project endorses and supports the Battle of the Mesh v11 because of the efforts made by its community to advance the field of wireless mesh networking and foster the development of grassroots community networks.

The B.A.T.M.A.N. project will support the event by:

  • help to promote the event
  • numerous members of the B.A.T.M.A.N. community have already confirmed their attendance
  • help organizing the event
  • help setting up the testbed for protocol testing
  • will organize workshops to discuss integration and new features with other communities
  • test our new algorithm B.A.T.M.A.N. V
