Open Source Wireless Mesh Software


Broadband Blog: The Champaign-Urbana Community Wireless Network (CUWiN) has announced that its free open source wireless networking software is available for download. The idea behind the CUWiN project is to provide a free wireless networking system that any municipality, company, or group of neighbors could easily set up themselves. Unlike most broadband systems, CUWiN’s software builds a local intranet as well as providing for Internet-connectivity. Thus, a town that uses CUWiN’s system is also creating a community-wide local area network over which streaming audio and video, voice services, etc. can all be sent.”
