The multi-hop wireless networks developed by the FP6 IST ADHOCSYS project provide a cost-effective solution for providing broadband access in mountainous regions. The solution is based on ad hoc networking technologies, created using cheap off-the-shelf hardware equipment, open source software, and an enhanced version of the OLSR routing protocol. This paper describes the implementation, installation and deployment aspects of the project, focusing on current deployment of a pilot network.

A Cost Effective Solution for Broadband Internet Access in Rural and Mountainous Regions

Aiming at providing reliable Internet access in rural and mountainous regions where xDSL is not available or non-profitable, the ADHOCSYS network provides a cost-effective solution based on multi-hop wireless networks.

The reliability performance of wireless multi-hop networks with apparent link-failures

An analytical model of the apparent link-failure probability in a wireless mesh network is provided and an upper and lower bound for the model is presented and applied in a reliability analysis of wireless mesh networks.

Modelling the behavior of a beacon-based link sensing mechanism with variable sensing range

The model is extended with an algorithm for finding the upper and lower bound for apparent link-failures in an arbitrary mesh topology and the validity of the model is investigated using different link models.

Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSR)

The Optimized Link State Routing protocol is an optimization of the classical link state algorithm tailored to the requirements of a mobile wireless LAN and provides optimal routes (in terms of number of hops).
