This document specifies an directional airtime link
metric for usage in OLSRv2. A major shortcoming of
OLSR was the use of hop count as a routing metric for
MANET networks, which can have highly variable and
heterogeneous link properties. OLSRv2 integrates the
concept of link metrics directly into the core specification
but the calculation and/or acquisition of this dimensionless
additive link cost is not specified.
Working Group Summary
There were no working group issues with any specific points.
There are at least 3 different independent implementations.
Most OLSRv2 implementation authors have either implemented
this draft or at least voiced the desire to do so.
