A wireless mesh network can be seen as a special type of wireless ad-hoc network. A wireless mesh network often has a more planned configuration, and may be deployed to provide dynamic and cost effective connectivity over a certain geographic area. A network with higher throughput will deliver better Quality of Service for bandwidth intensive applications such as video and voice streaming, VoIP, etc. A high throughput capacity WMN can support several users running bandwidth intensive applications simultaneously. The other advantage of using a WMN is that the geographical range of the network can be increased without disturbing the existing network topology.
