Executive Summary

Wireless mesh networks have seen much attention in recent years, and are still a topic of much interest. These networks have application in tactical military systems as well as commercial systems. The question of which duplexing, multiplexing, and multiple access techniques are preferable for mesh networks is also a subject of some study, but this particular topic has seen surprisingly little attention. It appears that time-division, or "Bursted" waveforms are currently favored in many systems. In this paper, the authors provide a basic comparison of time, frequency, and time-frequency schemes, highlighting their similarities and differences.
