Southbound Dart status from Pearse Station
IntroductionDublin Ad-hoc Wireless Network (DAWN) is a project undertaken by the Networks & Telecommunications Research Group (NTRG) of Trinity College Dublin that aims to build a production ad-hoc network operational in the entire city of Dublin. DAWN aims not only to be a testbed for the research undertaken at the NTRG, but also to serve as a prototype 4th Generation Mobile Network.
AimsThe basic aims of DAWN are summarised below:
Current StateCurrently the Dublin Ad-hoc Wireless Network (DAWN) has successfully completed Phase 1 (end of August 2002) and is fully operational in parts of the Trinity College campus:
The NTRG is at the moment actively working towards realising the second phase of DAWN. When Phase 2 is complete, DAWN will cover the entire Trinity College campus, as well as parts of the Dublin city centre.
ApplicationsThe NTRG has developed a number of applications that work on top of the Dublin Ad-hoc Wireless Network (DAWN):
The NTRG Protocol StackThe NTRG ad-hoc protocol stack employs a generic layer architecture that seeks to allow a LEGO-like approach to the development and assembly of networking protocols:
