In this paper, we describe the performance of the B.A.T.M.A.N daemon (Batmand) protocol on an indoor Mesh Potato (MP) testbed. The MPs are small devices used for voice communications over the wireless medium but also supports data. The batmand protocol is designed for ad hoc wireless networks. We measure delay, packet loss in order to understand the MPs network performance. The experiments used packets of varying sizes over multiple hops. We analyze the data to see if the network latency for up
