Abstract

What can be an alternative to Infrastructure based communication Systems like WLAN, GSM and others? This Demo/Presentation discusses one such experiment

Outline

There are several challenges to building a network that can defeat interception, jamming and reliability. We can take lessons from how the Tactical Radio Networks of MANET are organized and build them cheaply using off the shelf modules and components that are easily available everywhere.

Requirements

A whiteboard, Projector that can take standard HDMI.

    Farhan, can you please upload reference material available online for people to read-up before they attend the talk. Since it is fairly advanced talk for people who may not be aware of networks, it will be a great prep material before the talk.
