Executive Summary

Many wireless networking systems were established to manipulate metropolitan networks in order to provide internet, voice, data, video and TV services in large cities. Two major systems were used for such services; Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS) and Multi-channel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS). Both of these systems are fixed broadband access networks and both have problems in the cost, speed, coverage area and last-mile bottleneck, especially when the network size is increased. Deploying a new technology of a Wireless Optical Mesh network (WOMN) which uses wireless optical communications between nodes can overcome these problems and can provide more bandwidth, an interference-free network, a frequency-free network, and more effective applications that require a real time responding like video surveillance.
