OLSR coming to Serval project - and your phone

Decentralizing GSM to Wi-Fi mesh phone calls.
by Alexander Chemeris

Integrating OpenBTS and Serval consists of two core components:

1) Routing systems inter-operation.
2) Numbering systems inter-operation.

Each are explained below.

1. Routing inter-operation was achieved during the Code Sprint hosted at the New
America Foundation in Washington, DC in early June, 2011. By using the OLSR
protocol on both Serval mobiles and on an OpenBTS test node, participants were
able to route IP packets in a flexible way in a mobile ad-hoc network without
any need for manual configuration. The OpenBTS part of the OLSR setup was pretty
smooth, taking roughly half an hour to get everything up, configured and

initial iPhone port

The crew from FunkFeuer Weinviertel ported olsrd to the iPhone.
You can get it from the download area. However you still need a working olsrd.conf file. Start it via
olsrd -f $conffile -i en0 -d 0
A nice UI is still missing! Feel like making one?
