MAZI means “together” in Greek. The Mazi project is developing a toolkit for building local, community wireless networks: MAZI Zones.
We call this alternative technology Do-It-Yourself networking. It combines wireless technology, low-cost hardware, and free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) applications. MAZI Zones will be easily deployed and configured based on a rich set of customization options and interdisciplinary knowledge.
The MAZI project is an EU Horizon 2020 funded project that runs from 2016-2018, as part of the CAPS initiative – Collective Awareness Platforsm for Sustainability and Social Innovation (ICT-10-015).
