Ninux Roma Network Architecture
For years we have run the Ninux Wireless Community network in Roma, in small scale and with private IPv4 addressing. Exchanging traffic with the Internet was done using NAT, and exploiting the user home ADSL lines. In the very beginning we had a layer 2 network, then RIP routing, and finally since 2005 we started deploying the OLSR routing protocol. Because we had a very simple network structure and running just a single routing protocol, up to now we never needed a routing architecture. In 2011 we started to deploy a new Ninux network in Rome: dual stack IPv4 and IPv6, and with BGP peerings to upstream providers.
