Mesh Wi-Fi is a hot topic, with commercial products, standardisation activities making good progress and much excitment about the potential for wireless cities using this technology. Onthe other hand, reserach commissioned by Ofcom suggests that the some of the claimed spectral efficiency and capacity advantages of meshes, particularly at lower frequencies and in mobile scenarios, may be false.
Why the disparity? Is the Ofcom study not relevant to wireless city scenarios?Or are manufacturers overlooking some basics in the rush to produce product.? I'd be interested in views either way..
