Hybrid Wireless Mesh Network With Application to Emergency Scenarios
Source: Academy Publisher
Establishing and accessing a reliable communication infrastructure at crisis site is a challenging research problem. Failure in communication infrastructure and information exchange impedes the early response efforts resulting in huge loss of lives and economical impacts. In this paper, one present the results taken over the wireless mesh network that had been deployed to provide first responders with an infrastructure for local communication on campus during the drill. Additionally the network was connected to the outside world through a wired backhaul. This infrastructure is quickly deployable, easily configurable and interoperable in a heterogeneous environment with minimum interdependencies.
