Serval DNA has been integrated into the Commotion Project's OpenBTS GSM base station in order to connect conventional GSM phones to the mesh and extends the reach and security of Commotion's mobile coverage by meshing its OpenBTS base stations together:
Disaster response teams need rapid communications with their local headquarters whilst in the field. The only channels are typically low-bandwidth and expensive, like satellite phones. Succinct data transmits short messages like MeshMS over these channels by using data compression, relegating large data items like images or videos to Rhizome, which will arrive later.
Serval Project has participated in field exercises of the New Zealand Red Cross for the last two years.
There are several Student Projects completed, in progress and proposed.

Some Serval Project team members usually attend the annual Linux.conf.au conference to promote the project and engage with the free software community.
The technology roadmap describes ideas and features that have not yet been funded or scheduled for release.
