[Discuss-gnuradio] Looking for 802.11 MAC & PHY Package

Dear Marcus and all,

Many thanks for the advice regarding the Hydra and ORBIT project.

Actually I'm looking for the open-source 802.11 PHY&MAC packages which are compatible with Recent GNU Radio and USRP N210/X310.

I've searched from internet and got some findings listed below:
1) Hydra PHY & MAC from University of Texas at Austin [1]
2) FTW IEEE802.11a/g/p OFDM Frame Encoder [2]
3) UWICORE m-HOP 802.11 MAC for USRP based on the FTW PHY [3]
*** All (1-3) only compatible with gnuradio-3.2.2 which was too many years ago.

4) WIME IEEE 802.11a/g/p Transceiver for GNU Radio v3.7 [3]
*** This is a most recent package for gnuradio 3.7, but is PHY only. Are there any MAC package which compatible with this WIME PHY?

5) ORBIT Project [5]
*** This is a huge project which can be studied. Are there any project provide both 802.11 MAC & PHY like Hydrd did before?

Best regards,

Good luck with finding a "new version" of Hydra; I didn't find any
publication after 2009 on a quick first glance on google scholar[1]. And
I couldn't find the source code anywhere. Honestly: If you don't find
anything that proves otherwise, I'd presume that Hydra is kind of dead
[2]. Please prove me wrong on this!

There is the ORBIT lab that has come up with a rather comprehensive
infrastructure for wireless testbeds, so you might want to look at that[3].

Thanks for your reply. I think the best way to us is to find the new
version of Hydra package which is based on the recent GNU Radio version
working with current USRP produces.
