The article reports on the IEEE standard for the interoperable Wi-Fi mesh networks. The standard is key to the battle between Wi-Fi mesh and wireless networks based on IEEE 802.16, such as the so-called WiMAX and the ETSI HiperMAN. In technical terms, the goal is to create a protocol for auto-configuring paths between access pointes over self-configuring multi-hop topologies in a wireless distribution system to support both broadcast/multicast and unicast traffic in an ESS Mesh using the four-address frame format or an extension.
