Babel Router 1.4.3
This project provides a free and Open Source loop-free distance-vector routing protocol
With fast convergence properties, Babel is inspired by AODV, DSDV, and Cisco's EIGRP project, but it uses a flavor of ETX link cost estimation instead of a simple hop-count metric.
Originally designed for wireless ad-hoc networks, Babel works well on wired networks and features a distance-vector protocol, a proactive protocol, senses link quality for computing route metrics, and uses sequence numbers to make old routes feasible again.
