Wireless Mesh Networks provide a flexible network backbone for large industrial plants. The communication is controlled by a mesh routing protocol, When developing such protocols, it is very important to test and evaluate the implementation under realistic conditions. For this reason, a testbed consisting of many stationary and mobile mesh participants is operated in the faculty building. This testbed is used to evaluate the performance of routing protocols and their extensions, as well as for demonstration of the developed protocols.
