Abstract

Project ExScal (for Extreme Scale) fielded a 1000+ node wireless sensor network and a 200+ node ad hoc network of 802.11 devices in a 1.3km by 300m remote area in Florida during December 2004. In several respects, these networks are likely the largest deployed networks of either type to date. We overview here the key requirements of the project, describe briefly how they were met and experimentally tested, and provide a pointer to our experimental results.
