In the present scenario, improvement in the data rate, network capacity, scalability, and the network throughput are some of the most serious issues in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN). Specifically, a major obstacle that hinders the widespread adoption of WMN is the severe limits on throughput and the network capacity. This chapter presents a discussion on the potential use of a combined Orthogonal-Frequency Code-Division (OFCD) multiple access scheme in a WMN. The OFCD is the combination of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA).
