• People notice NetJSON 25 August 2015
    Seems like one of the tasks that Funkfeuer supports within the CONFINE project – NetJSON – is being noticed outside of the regular community wireless circles: there’s a very encouraging post on ycombinator!  Way to go. me and Fede should still work on the other parts and submit the RFC in Sept! Let’s go go go […]

  • Congrats OLSRv2! 22 August 2015
    Today I just saw the results (and graphics) from the wireless battlemesh: OLSRv2 really was very successful. The graphs are quite impressive: the more on the upper left corner the line, the better.   […]

  • working on the NetJSON common output format 22 August 2015
    Federico and were working on the NetJSON network description format. The idea is that we define a JSON format for the most common use-cases for data transfer within applications (such as node databases) within community wireless networks. Of course , t... […]

  • Improve authentication forms 15 June 2015
    During the development of the dashboard, I adapted the login form to the visual style of the dashboard. Unfortunately, this resulted in the loss of notifications, e.g., after a password reset there should be a notification telling the user that an email was sent to the account with a temporary password. At the Nodedb workshop […]

CONFINE

Large-scale integrating project (IP) Community networks are an emerging and successful model for the Future Internet across Europe and far beyond.The CONFINE project complements existing FIRE infrastructure by establishing a new facility built on the federation of existing community IP networks constituted by more than 20,000 nodes and 20,000 Km of links. These community networks incorporate a large and wide variety of commodity wireless and optical links, heterogeneous nodes, different routing protocols, applications and a large number of end-users, following an innovative model of self-provisioning using unlicensed and public spectrum.The project develops a unified access to an open testbed with tools that allow researchers to deploy, run, monitor and experiment with services, protocols and applications on real-world community IP networks. This integrated platform will provide user-friendly access to these emerging networks supporting any stakeholder interested in developing and testing experimental technologies for open and interoperable network infrastructures, strengthening open community networks. This type of networks is an emerging and successful model for the Future Internet across Europe and beyond. The project includes as partners well established community networks with large end-user bases and diverse application providers (e.g. content distribution, voice, data and multimedia communication), research institutions with experience in key related areas, non-profit organizations and SMEs with experience in supporting researchers, community networks and end-users.Open call: a new open call with project funding was open from September 2 closing (Extended to November 14) October 19, 2013 to use and expand our community networking testbed (Community-Lab) by external research groups, and also by other community networks.
