A Wireless Mesh Network is where Mesh networking works as a way of transmitting data. In this type of network, a node not only just sends or receives data, but relays the data to other nodes and each node works to circulate data in the network.

A wireless mesh network works as a collection of nodes where each node also works as a router. It is quite similar to a Wi-Fi access point where network can be provided only within the reach of a signal and connection goes off once the Wi-Fi is powered off. Mesh nodes works by rerouting the data to other hops to which it is connected for passing through the empty area where a node is off or missing. Though the Mesh networking comes in both forms of physical and wireless, it is more common for the wireless networks since the cabling cost is needed for a physical networking.

A mesh node works in a cooperative way where the more it is added the greater the bandwidth becomes. In traditional networking system, more bandwidth was added for more data to pass in real time. But once the data was less, the bandwidth got wasted. But in Mesh networking, the bandwidth scales automatically when the number of user increases or decreases.


Mesh network is involved with various fixed or mobile devices like tunnels or oil rigs, high-speed video applications on public transport etc. it has been deployed by the Electric Smart Meter system where a meter reading is transferred from one household to the other and eventually to the meter office. No human meter reader is needed thus or the physical cabling for that matter.

Google Home, Google OnHub or Google Wi-Fi also supports the Mesh Networking/ Wi-Fi system.

Achieving truly secure communications with DECT-compliant solutions

White Paper By: Plantronics

Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication (DECT) is a 1.9 gigahertz technology which is often referred to as being “interference-free” since it does not share spectrum with other technologies such as Wi-Fi networks. It utilizes a dedicated part of the wireless spectrum to provide high levels of security and audio quality in enterprise office and home environments. This...

Effective Audio For Video Conferencing

White Paper By: Clear One

For the success of any audio conference, the quality of the voice transmission line is crucial. Voice quality in a video conference is impacted by the acoustics of at least two rooms – the caller and the listener. Today, most audio conferencing endpoint products (speakers, microphones, and audio mixing controls) are full-duplex systems, providing the same kind of interaction one gets...
