Projects / Nightwing


Nightwing allows the creation of quickly deployed wireless networks without the need to make complicated configurations. With the implementation of a Mesh technology called B.A.T.M.A.N, Nightwing allows the extension of wireless networks with a simple way of adding devices that works with minimal human intervention. It has public and private connection interfaces, and the ability to filter content using OpenDNS. It is designed with security in mind, and has low hardware requirements.
