Mesh networking offers a new model of seamless mobility transforming wireless data and voice communications
Instant, wireless information access can provide both economic, quality of life, and safety benefits. Installed permanently or temporarily, mesh networks provide the required ease of deployment and high throughput in even the most difficult environments.
Wireless Mesh allows for resilient networks to be deployed quickly and at a fraction of the cost to implement or extend a traditional wired LAN or WAN.
This form of network is extremely reliable as each node is connected to several other nodes. Therefore, if one drops out of the network due to hardware failure, its neighbours will instantly find another route in order to keep you connected. This is commonly known as a self healing network.
Modern mesh networks are also self forming and balancing in so far as the nodes are intelligent enough to "form" the network by meshing via connection paths that offer best performance.
Wireless mesh networking is able to open the door to many new wireless capabilities:
- Instant, automatic formation and evolution of wireless networks
- Self-forming, self-healing and self balancing
- Increased coverage and performance
- Non-GPS location and asset tracking
- Lower infrastructure and operational costs
