The article discusses research by In-Stat entitled "In-Depth Analysis: Wi-Fi Goes Long: The Wi-Fi Mesh Equipment Market" that reveals the market for Wi-Fi access points capable of handling meshing will almost double by the end of the 2000s, but a lack of multi-vendor interoperability could be an obstacle to the technology's growth. The research notes that the growth of the market is closely tied to municipal Wi-Fi deployments where the inter-AP communications can replace the need for wireline backhaul.
