Mesh Networks

What is a Mesh Network?

A mesh network is a cluster of interconnected wireless access points, providing coverage over a large area. Often, mesh access points are cheap and easy to install, and the goal is to have a higher number of them linked together to make sure there are no dead spots in an area. Mesh network can often extend wireless coverage without a requiring a hard-line connection to each access point.

How does a Mesh Network work?

Mesh networks work by providing or repeating a wireless signal so that a user may move freely around an area with coverage without experiencing any interruptions. They are often deployed across large structures (such as a stadium or conference center), or around large outdoor or city areas (such as parks or a city center).
