OLSR, Optimized Link State Routing protocol, allows mesh routing for any network equipment. This protocol uses multipoint relaying for optimized message flooding. OLSR is a good routing protocal for mobile ad-hoc networks. We an use this with our HSMM routers and build a permanent or a rapid deployable system. The system would be self configuring and self healing. These are some good points in using this protocol for emergencey traffic. The two biggest points are mobility and multihop. I am setting up some WRT54G routers with OLSR and DD-WRT and will start testing these units. In early testing it looks to be a good system.
