WasabiNet endorses the Battle of the Mesh v9

on Fri, 02/05/2016 - 9:51pm

The "Wireless Battle of the Mesh" is an event that aims to bring together people from across the globe to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N, BMX, OLSR, and 802.11s.

Many developers and community networkers will join the event to hack, test, discuss, explain and learn.

If you are interested in dynamic routing protocols or wireless community networks you can't miss this event!

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.

The Importance of Shielding

TDLR version:
Shields are absolutely necessary for any radios hung on the same mast.  Homemade shields described below will work, but you might as well just buy the $28 prefab RF Armor shields for Nanostation here and Nanostation Loco here.

Longer version:
Despite better judgment, I have been rolling out some nifty homebrew "RF Armor" style shields on Nanostations and Nanostation Locos.  They yield particular benefit for any radios mounted on the same mast.  Indeed, I'd say such shields are required for co-located radios, even with 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz units.
