Wireless mesh networks explained and applied — what can they do for you?
Wireless Mesh in nothing new and has been used in defence, surveillance and media broadcasting for years. However, with more advanced waveforms and the ever-increasing demand for high speed data across large geographical areas demand is increasing. This presentation takes a look at how these waveforms can be applied to provide truly robust ‘last mile’ connectivity for the IP networks of the future and how they fit with the future ‘vehicle as the hub’ topology. Grant will explain the technology around COFDM and its benefits for direct mode IP mesh networks.
