WMN, the Wireless Mesh Network is a promising technology in providing the last mile broadband access. In a WMN, a mesh client can access the Internet through formed wireless mesh routers which are interconnected in a multi-hop fashion. This paper is a quick 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.
