Mesh network


Mesh networks are radio communication networks in which radio nodes act as a relay to neighbouring nodes. Mesh networks allow connectivity between nodes in a network that can not reach each other directly.

There are two types of mesh networks:

  1. Structured mesh networks,
  2. Ad-hoc networks.

In a structured mesh network, the nodes have fixed positions. A structured mesh network is used in fixed wireless access. The mesh network makes wireless access possible for nodes that can not reach the base station directly.

Ad-hoc networks are based on mobile terminals which form an autonomous network as they come into each other vicinity.
