The article focuses on the application of wireless mesh networks. Mesh networks are designed to provide inexpensive Wi-Fi service. However, the lack of coverage and some provisioning issues have slowed the spread of mesh networks to larger markets. Despite these issues, the mesh business model is improving and prompting more companies to deploy mesh networks as a workable business opportunity.
