Chissungo, Edmundo, Edwin Blake and Hanh Le (2011) Investigation into BATMANd-0.3.2 Protocol Performance in an Indoor Mesh Potato Testbed. In Proceedings South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists, pages 267-270, Cape Town, South Africa.
In this paper, we describe the performance of the B.A.T.M.A.N daemon (Batmand) protocol on an indoor Mesh Potato (MP) testbed. The MPs are small devices used for voice communications over the wireless medium but also supports data. The batmand protocol is designed for ad hoc wireless networks. We measure delay, packet loss in order to understand the MPs network performance. The experiments used packets of varying sizes over multiple hops. We analyze the data to see if the network latency for up to four hops is within the recommended boundaries set by ITU-Recommendation G. 114. We also observe the how the network’s performance is affected by the varying packet sizes. Finally the experiments also reveal the common issues found on the wireless medium and also indoor testbeds.
