Babel hackathon
[19-21] july 2013 @ Le L♾p

A hackathon dedicated to the Babel wireless mesh routing protocol will be held during three days in Paris, at the LeLoop.org hackerspace. The event primarily aims at testing the new features of Babel (diversity, RTT metric, source-specific routing, etc...) in a real-world environment.


14 h Talk Juliusz Chroboczek "À propos de quelques extensions récentes du protocole Babel" French
14 h 30 Talk Baptiste Jonglez "Utiliser le délai comme métrique pour Babel" French (slides in English)
15 h Talk Matthieu Boutier "Routage spécifique à la source" French
16 h Workshop Err404 "Babel pour les débutants" / "Babel for noobs" French (English on demand)

Planned experiments

Different setups will be in place during the hackathon. One of the goals is to test and evaluate these setups.

Some ideas that we might want to test:

  • Babel-Z evaluation, by Juliusz Chroboczek & Benjamin
Using a network of multi-radio routers.
  • IPv6 multihoming, by Matthieu Boutier
  • Setting up hybrid routers, by Baptiste Jonglez
Classical AP, with traffic routed through the Babel backbone.

This list is not exhaustive, and we might come up with other ideas during the week-end.
