  Thomas Belote, Wireless Mesh Networking

   As a grad student at SJSU, Thomas has worked on Wireless Mesh Networking
   and Mobile Ad Hoc Networking. The talk will compare solutions like OLSR
   and Microsoft's sorta open source Mesh Connectivity Layer (though it
   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
   that I am still currently researching.


Although it is not required, we like to have an idea of how many
people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
are planning to attend.


For information on getting to the meeting, please see:


Traffic on 101 can be pretty bad in the evening, so we encourage you
to check traffic conditions before driving by dialing 5-1-1 on your
phone or visiting www.511.org, and if possible to take public transit
(best bet: bicycle via Caltrain) or carpool to this meeting.


See www.penlug.org for more information.
