Quick Mesh Project (qMp) is a system for easily deploying Mesh/MANET networks using Wi-Fi technology.
qMp has been designed for being used in any scenario such as free community networks, corporative networks, large social events, quick network deployments, etc.

The qMp firmware, based on OpenWrt, works on many embedded WiFi network devices. To start deploying a qMp node, you can get the software for your device at the download page.
All the qMp source code is public, free and open, and can be accessed from the development website. If you want to join the project and contribute with your code, check here about how to start contributing on qMp.
