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

Olsrd 0.5.6-r6 released!

olsrd 0.5.6-r5 released!

This -r5 release of olsrd in the stable branch is probably the last release in this branch series. Henning, Markus Kittenberger and Keks from Berlin have been debugging and hardening the source code base. This fixes many issues we saw in messy, real world networks. The last bug that hit us was an incompatibility with the mDNS plugin. This one had the effect that packets would be parsed incorrectly effectively generating random topologies on Avila boards *if* the mDNS plugin was active .

We highly recommend an update for a stable environment. We consider this version an improvement in stability.

Excerpt from the CHANGELOG file:

- HACK: MinTCVTime parameter hack for Berlin FF network...
feel free to ask on the mailing list.
- add Watchdog plugin

Using Valgrind for profiling olsrd

Valgrind is a powerful tool for performance and correctness analysis of code. This page discusses how to set your development environment up, such that you can profile a running olsr daemon and later analyze its recordings using a graphical frontend called Kcachegrind.
