How it works

The physics of broadband wireless communications stipulates that trade-offs between data rate and radio range for any given transmitter power output have to be made. That is, for a specified transmit power, the data rate available (i.e. throughput) will decrease as range from the transmitter increases. This is true for any radio modulation or protocol. Once a radio reaches the maximum allowed power level, it must start dropping data rates to increase transmit distance.

When a user sends data out into the network, it can travel along any number of paths (redundancy) to reach its destination. Wireless mesh networks have the advantage of allowing data to travel to any node within range, rather than only through direct connection. This makes the network self-healing, instantly finding new paths around blockages.

Mesh WiFi Technology

A wireless Mesh network provides both redundancy and self-healing as each node in the Mesh network is connected to at least one other node and uses intelligent routing to find other nodes in the network should its primary connection be disabled.

A mesh network (Fig 1) topology is a decentralized design in which each node on the network connects to at least two other nodes. Mesh networks are expected to play an important part in the Internet of Things (IoT).


Unlike nodes in a star topology, which require a router to deliver Internet service, network nodes can "talk" directly to each other without requiring the assistance of an Internet connection. A big advantage of this decentralized topology is that there cannot be a single point of failure (SPoF). If one node can no longer operate, all the rest can still communicate with each other, directly or through one or more intermediate nodes.

Mesh networks can use a full mesh topology or a partial mesh topology. In a full mesh topology, each network node is connected to all the other nodes in the network. In a partial mesh topology, at least one node connects directly to every other node while others may only connect to those nodes they exchange data with on a frequent basis. This is why a Mesh network can achieve a high level of availability and network redundancy.

What this means

In the past, networks were always wired, the topology could be expensive (and complicated) to implement because each node had to be physically connected to the other nodes. Today, however, advances in wireless communication and short-range wireless personal network (WPAN) specifications have removed the physical and financial barriers allowing you to provide efficient WiFi for your tenants with speeds competitive to conventional in home WiFi.
