Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors investigate architectural and practical issues related to the setup of a broadband home network solution. Their experience led them to the consideration of a hybrid, wireless and wired, Mesh-Network to enable high data rate service delivery everywhere in the home. They demonstrate the effectiveness of their proposal using a real experimental testbed. This latter consists of a multi-hop mesh network composed of a home gateway and "Extenders" supporting several types of physical connectivity including PLC, WiFi, and Ethernet. The solution also includes a layer 2 implementation of the OLSR protocol for path selection.
