Tutornet is a very challenging topology: it has very heavy, bursty  
packet loss. This is because motes are connected to wireless PCs that  
run OLSR; the nearby 200mW transmitters cause a lot of interference  
for 1mW motes. This is why net2 tends to focus its evaluation on  
Tutornet; it's by far the most dynamic and challenging network we've  
come across.
