Il “Wireless Battle of the Mesh” è un evento che mira a far incontrare persone da tutto il pianeta per testare le performance dei differenti protocolli di routing (Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, OLSR, 802.11s, ecc) e per parlare di community network.

Molti appassionati di reti mesh si uniranno all’evento per presentare novità, testare, sviluppare ed imparare.

Se sei interessato in protocolli di routing dinamici, reti comunitarie, reti wireless o reti mesh non puoi perdere questo evento!

L’evento è gratuito ed aperto a tutti, ogni anno ci impegniamo a tenere i costi di partecipazione bassi facendo accordi per pernottamento e cibo.

Quest’anno l’evento si terrà dal 3 al 9 Agosto 2015 a Maribor, Slovenia e sarà tenuto da Wlan Slovenia.

Ninux sostiene il battlemesh dalle sue primissime edizioni perchè è anche grazie a questo tipo di eventi che riusciamo a migliorare le nostre conoscenze sul campo delle reti distribuite e sulle reti comunitarie.

Ninux supporterà l’evento principalmente in tre modi:

  • aiutando con la promozione e gli “endorsements”
  • portando membri della comunità all’evento
  • proponendo talk riguardo gli sviluppi della nostra comunità

Potete trovare più informazioni sul sito ufficiale del Battlemesh.

Se hai intenzione di unirti a noi ti consigliamo di seguire la mailing list dell’evento per non perdere gli ultimi sviluppi.

the ninux community supports the netcommons project

To the reviewers of the netCommons project,
To whom it may concern.

Object: support letter for the netCommons project

Ninux.org is a wireless community network born in Rome, Italy, in 2002 and now spread all over the Country. Its name currently stands for “Neighborhood Internet, Network Under eXperiment”. In fact, Ninux.org has been testing devices, home-made antennas and routing protocols while exchanging knowledge with the other Community Networks in Europe. Also, Ninux.org Rome is among the first networks in Italy to provide native IPv6 connection to residential sites. It is an Autonomous System with IPv4 and IPv6 peerings with other local Internet Service providers and interconnected at NaMeX, Central Italy’s Internet Exchange Point. Many services are provided by users inside the network: VoIP, XMPP chat, Web, search engines. Ninux.org has been also involved in the Google Summer of Code program, in which many open source projects have been extended or initiated. For instance the Nodeshot map server, produced in the Google Summer of Code 2011 is now employed by Ninux.org, SeattleMesh.net and Sudo Mesh. The Ninux.org network is currently composed of about 330 active nodes. More information can be found on the websites http://www.ninux.org and http://map.ninux.org.

Having read the white paper describing the netCommons project proposal we believe it is a very important chance to support the growth of the community networks movement, and its outcomes will produce both technological and social innovation needed for community networks to flourish.

Thus, we fully support the netCommons project and hope that it will be financed, so that our community, as others, will benefit from its results.

If the project will be financed, we also express our availability to be involved and to cooperate netCommons: informally, during the European meetings where people from our community normally participate, or formally, with the financed individual participation to the netCommons’ project meetings and activities. The form of such cooperation will be negotiated, if necessary, after the project approval with the project partners.

Sincerely,
The ninux community
