Welcome to the Centennial Mesh Network Testbed !

CoE Open House, March 2013

CentMesh : a project to build a versatile, open source shared resource on campus

Provide an active testbed to support research and instruction on wireless networks

Part of NCSU’s “Living Laboratory”vision

CoE Open House, March 2013

Multihop wireless

Stationary backbone – mobile routers and clients

Some nodes have Internet access – other share

Advantages: Cheaper, less infrastructure, more agile deployment, more intelligence in network

Potential: Metro area, municipal networks, tactical, vehicular, smartgrid, healthcare…

What is a “Mesh Network”?

  • Homemade !

    • Built by NCSU student researchers

    • Guided by NCSU faculty

    • Funded by Army Research Office and NCSU

    • Operationalized by Institute of Technology of Next Generation (ITng), NCSU
