Emulating Huge Mesh Routing Networks

A year ago I set out to test various existing mesh routing protocols on different topologies. Especially emulating huge networks are tempting, since real hardware for this is too expensive (for me). I present the story, the projects [1] and my findings while testing emulated mesh networks of up to 2000 nodes.

Protocol implementations tested:

  • Babel
  • batman-adv
  • BMX6
  • BMX7
  • OLSRd
  • OLSR2
  • OSPF

I am long time Open Source programmer trying to make the world a better place. Often I contribute to Freifunk related topics and projects. My main interest is in mesh routing and how to make it efficient and scalable.
