Mesh routing is difficult, mesh routing for low power and lossy networks is straight up comatose. This session will help understand how the signalling/messaging works and depict sample packet captures for RPL signalling from real environments. It will also introduce tools apart from wireshark, such as scapy that can help construct/deconstruct the messaging. Obtaining performance data for mesh networks is another aspect covered in the session. What makes taking performance difficult? What are the best practices and some of the case studies? The session will also provide a demo into creating a sample 10 node RPL network on a laptop and getting the packet capture for the network formation.
Rahul Jadhav is an avid coder, and a system engineer working on solutions involving network and transport optimization. I have contributed towards more than a dozen open sources including Linux Kernel and worked closely with IETF Standards Working Groups (such as ROLL, 6lo, LWIG) and Linux Foundation Groups. Taken several projects from conception to market. Architected metering infrastructure based on 802.15.4G + PLC/6lo/RPL for Smart Grids and has a special interest in scalable mesh network architectures for low-power networks and has contributed towards IETF protocol standardization in the domain. Currently, I am part of the Accuknox team figuring out the best way to handle Zero-Trust based Security solutions involving Cloud/Edge/IoT.
