The article reports on the first and geographically largest deployment of mobile mesh networking technology for use by a civic public safety entity in Garland, Texas. It is based on a micro-cellular architecture that places router functionality in every network component, a scheme that creates a self-forming and self-healing network with peer-to-peer networking capabilities. The approach embeds a wireless router in every device so that each unit can extend the network, determine optimum paths for data transmission and provide additional paths for connectivity.
