Overhead Measurements from WCW 2013 Berlin

Protocol overhead measurements of BMX6 and other routing protocols from Wireless Community Weekend (WCW) 2013 in Berlin
Added by Axel Neumann over 9 years ago

Several routing protocols (OLSR, Babel, Batman-adv, and BMX6) have been tested in a temporary wireless testbed at the Wireless Community Weekend 2013 in Berlin [1]
The testbed consisted of ~20 TPlink nodes configured with the same system as used during the WirelessBattleMesh (WBM v6) in Aalborg [2]
For the test one node moved around the side and measured the overhead produced by each protocol with tcpdump.

A graphical overview of the measured overhead is available here:
and showing BMX6 as the protocol with the lowest overhead.
