[vox] BALUG Dinner: WiFi Mesh Networking (Tuesday)

Title: BALUG Dinner: WiFi Mesh Networking (Tuesday)

Howdy Folks:

Balug on Tuesday will host a new speaker, Thomas Belote.

Tom will be talking about wireless mesh networking.  As a grad student at San Jose State, Thomas has worked on Wireless Mesh Networking and Mobile Ad Hoc Networking. His talk will compare solutions like OLSR and Microsoft's semi open source Mesh Connectivity Layer (that doesn't run on Linux). He will discuss why WDS is not sufficient and a mesh protocol is needed, and discuss the lack of openness thus far in 802.11s even though it is included in the OLPC, as well as security issues and implications.

If you'd like to come, please RSVP:
