The FreedomLink is how the Free Network Stack connects with the rest of the world. It will speak BGP with the internet at large and various interior gateway routing protocols (Babel/OSLR/OSPF/Batman) with the FreedomTower.

FreedomLinks will be situated initially in colocation facilities (with wireless radio links to FreedomTowers, 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 regional meshes and 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. More to come soon!
