Open-source implementation of 802.11s (open80211s) on Nokia N810 internet tablet
Nokia's N8x0 has 2.6.21 kernel and wifi driver (without mesh support), but there are opensource mac80211-based driver (published at 8.09.2008 by Nokia). As you know, since 2.6.26 kernel linux contains some mac80211-code for support mesh connections.
We are going to make Nokia N810 internet tablet as 802.11s mesh capable devices using open-source implementation of 802.11s (open80211s). The main target is to get the first practical experiences of the possibilities of the technology and services it allows.
1. Kernel update
We are building and installing new kernel on N8x0 and setup mesh. Target date: December 2008
We are testing communication between several N8x0 devices by using driver debug interfaces and/or wireless monitoring. We will try to make testing ramework for WLAN investigation. (Public report on FRUCT). Target date: March/April 2009
We are testing features of open-source implementation of 802.11s and detect areas for improvement.
- Testing heterogeneous mesh networks
- Improvement of routing procedures
- Creating full-functional testing tool-set (framework).
- Connect implementation activities with simulation modeling in NS2 (Project: )
