Challenges and Issues in Designing Architectures and Protocols for Wireless Mesh Networks
Source: University of Calabria
Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising wireless technology for several emerging and commercially interesting applications, e.g., broadband home networking, community and neighborhood networks, coordinated network management, intelligent transportation systems. It is gaining significant attention as a possible way for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and other end-users to establish robust and reliable wireless broadband service access at a reasonable cost. WMNs consist of mesh routers and mesh clients. In this architecture, while static mesh routers form the wireless backbone, mesh clients access the network through mesh routers as well as directly meshing with each other.
