The OLSR Success Story

A routing protocol for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) developed integrally by the Hipercom project team, OLSR has become standardised and widely adopted: Google references OLSR with more than 450,000 hits, DARPA uses it as its reference protocol for its tactical networks, there are many urban deployments of OLSR based MESH WiFi networks, and industrial adoption of OLSR is significant.

Indeed, the OLSR protocol is a rare example of IETF standardisation of a protocol driven from the very beginning (development of algorithms and ideas) to the very end (formal publication of a protocol specification as an RFC - an official document sanctioning the protocol as adopted by the IETF) by a single academic actor - the Hipercom project team.

Dr. Omprakash Gnawali's talk On the Repeatibility of Wireless Sensor Network Experiments
Abstract: Repeatable experiments are thought to be an essential core of any scientific discipline. In this talk, I will describe the challenges in making sensor networking experiments repeatable. I will then describe the work I and others in the sensor network research community have done to address the repeatibility of network experiments.

Speaker Bio: Omprakash Gnawali is an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston, USA. He was a Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford University, got his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, and received his Masters and Bachelors degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research lies at the intersection of low power wireless networks and embedded sensing systems.
