Practical Issues of Implementing a Hybrid Multi-NIC Wireless Mesh-Network

Mesut Güneş, Bastian Blywis, Felix Shzu-Juraschek, Philipp Schmidt— 2008

Testbeds are a powerful tool to study wireless mesh and sensor networks as close as possible to real world application scenarios. In contrast to simulation or analytical approaches these installations face various kinds of environment parameters. Challenges related to the shared physical medium, operating system, and used hardware components do arise. In this technical report about the work-in-progress emph{Distributed Embedded Systems} testbed of 100 routers deployed at the emph{Freie Universität Berlin} we focus on the software architecture and give an introduction to the network protocol stack of the Linux kernel. Furthermore, we discuss our first experiences with a pilot network setup, the encountered problems and the achieved solutions. This writing continues our first publication and builds upon the discussed overall testbed architecture, our experiment methodology, and aspired research objectives.
