An Introduction to Wireless Mesh Networking
Wireless networks provide mobility for laptop and PDA users who no longer need wires to stay connected to their workplace and the Internet. Ironically, the very devices that provide wireless service need lots of wiring themselves to connect to private networks and the Internet. This white paper presents a viable alternative to all those wires – the wireless mesh network. The paper covers basic mesh concepts and technologies, key capabilities needed to deploy an effective and robust solution, and target applications in both private and public networks.
