Wireless Mesh Networks: Opportunities and Challenges
Time: Monday 27 June 2005
L. Sichitiu, North Carolina State University, USA
In this tutorial we present a relatively new wireless technology, commonly called wireless mesh networking (WMN). These networks have the potential to deliver Internet broadband access, connectivity and wireless coverage for both stationary and mobile hosts at low costs both for the service providers and customers. The core technology involves a network of wireless routers relaying each others' packets in a multihop fashion. We will present an introduction to the core technology, applications, design options, a survey of the state of the art and major research problems that have to be solved for the technology to be successful.
