Rooftop WLAN Redux

Date and Time

Wednesday, February 20, 2008 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm


MIT Building E-51, Room 335


Kurt Keville , Thaumaturgical Engineer , MIT Clinical Research Center - kkeville alum mit edu


Kurt discusses progress on the Rooftop WLAN project at MIT, and today's best practices in wireless Linux.


Wireless Access Points have become powerful embedded Linux appliances in recent years. Much of the functionality of standalone boxes or general servers that would reside at a layer above the wireless access equipment has now been brought down to the "first mile" point. Access to these features have, in turn, inspired programmers to do considerable development in packet routing protocols and network topology designs. Kurt Keville will give an overview of contemporary best practices in wireless Linux with particular emphasis on his involvement with the Rooftop WLAN project at MIT. He will put special emphasis on advanced routing features and non-RFC compliant functionality which has been the primary technology enabler in many Municipal Wireless initiatives.
