Using ESP32 with existing Mesh networks that use OLSR?

Postby chibill » Tue Oct 15, 2019 5:40 pm

Is it possible to use an ESP32 as part of an existing mesh network that uses the opensource and widely used OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing Protocol)? I am interested in using them as low cost nodes to get thru areas that more expensive nodes wouldn't be a good choice.

Hi chibill,

Sorry I'm afraid ESP32 don't support OLSR network, but we can support ESP-MESH(Wi-Fi Mesh) and ESP-BLE-MESH(BLE Mesh) if you need this function.

OLSR is the packet routing method for use on Wifi Mesh networks.

The mesh I am trying to use an ESP with uses the standard Ad-Hoc mode of wifi as defined by 802.11

I mentioned OLSR because I though it would be relevant. I feel like you didn't know what OLSR with that reply.

Hi chibill,
ESP32 doesn't support Ad-Hoc mode actually.
Our esp wifi mesh protocol is different from the 802.11 wifi mesh. So I'm afraid that there's no relationship between OSLR and esp wifi mesh.

Is there any documentation on wifi stack so I could try and hack support for a 802.11 standard? Or is that some thing that Espressif can't release or opensource.
