FreedomLinks connect wireless mesh traffic from FreedomTowers in a single municipality or region to other Free Networks (via secured links; think distributed VPN) and routes packets to the Internet itself. They peer directly with other Autonomous Systems of the Internet via BGP. FreedomLinks will be situated initially in colocation facilities, and eventually in network meet-me rooms. They serve as gateways for logical connections via FreedomTunnel. FreedomLinks will have substantial computational capacity, be multi-homed, and peered via fiber-optics. FreedomLinks are the focal point of the Layer 2, regional meshes – as such, they are intended to serve communities of 25,000-75,000.

Status

June 2012: the inter-link routing protocol will probably be babel
