The article discusses the concept of wireless mesh solution and its forecasted success in the wireless local area network (WLAN) market. Wireless mesh solution was regarded as the most widely deployed WLAN. According to the author, wireless mesh networks are different from traditional WLANs. Wireless mesh uses equipment that acts as node or access point and has an ability to communicate with other networks in other places.
