The 2nd International Workshop on Community Networks and Bottom-up-Broadband (CNBuB 2013) was hold the 7th of October in Lyon, France. 7 papers were presented organized in two session, one on networking topics and one on applications aspects of community networks.
CONFINE has a new open call for participation. The deadline for application is October 19, 2013. We are looking for:
i) experiments relevant to community networks that make use of the existing Community-Lab testbed. ii) expansion of the Community-Lab testbed over other community networks that bring added value to the testbed.

The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims to bring together people from across the globe to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, OLSR, and 802.11s. Of course, new protocols (working on OpenWRT ) are always welcome!
This year the even will take […]

What is Network Virtualization?
Network virtualization is the process of combining hardware and software network resources and network functionality into a single, software-based administrative entity, a virtual network.
A networking environment supports network virtualization if it allows coexistence of multiple virtual networks on the […]
What is a community network?
Community network (CN), is a term broadly used to indicate the use of networking technologies by, and for, a local community. Free-nets and civic networks may indicate a similar range of projects and services, whereas community technology centers and telecentres generally indicate a physical facility to compensate for lack of […]
Community network (CN) is a term used broadly to indicate the use of networking technologies by, and for, a local community. Free-nets and civic networks indicate roughly the same range of projects and services, whereas community technology centers (CTCs) and telecentres generally indicate a physical facility to compensate for lack of […]
