In this paper, we describe the performance of the B.A.T.M.A.N advanced (Batman-adv) protocol on an indoor Mesh Potato (MP) test bed. The MPs are small devices used for voice communications over the wireless medium but also supports data. The Batman-adv protocol is designed for ad hocwireless 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 to four hops is within the recommended boundaries set by ITU Recommendation G. 114. We also observe the how thenetwork's performance is affected by the varying packet sizes. Finally the experiments also reveal the common issues found on the wireless medium and also indoor testbeds.
