Study of Wireless Mesh Networks and WMN Architecture
The Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising technology in providing the last mile broad band access. A Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. In a WMN, a mesh client can access the Internet through formed wireless mesh routers which are interconnected in a multi-hop fashion. Wireless mesh networks often consist of mesh clients, mesh routers and gateways. This paper is on technical overview and covers: WMN overview (i.e., fundamental concept, technology, standards, etc.) and WMN architecture (i.e., network and node architectures, components, applications, etc.) Finally, a list of issues requiring further research is deliberated.
