I Am a Techie is happy to announce a post series on Wifi Mesh Networking. In the coming weeks we will be testing some of the major mesh firmwares and supporting software’s.

Wifi mesh networks consists of a collection of wireless routers which work together to provide wireless access to client devices. The mesh routers route packets from one router to another in order to reach destination. One of the major factor that helps us classify the routers available is the algorithm used for routing. Here is a simple wifi mesh network diagram.

Mainly two firmware are popular for mesh networking, meraki, and open mesh of which open mesh is best suitable for the time being mainly because of its cost.

By making an area wifi enabled will make you even call within the network free of cost using VOIP.

Subscribe to the RSS feed and wait while we uncover the mesh secrets.

    Great! I’ll be watching your progress with the testing … it’ll probably be more systematic and thorough than the ad-hoc testing I’ve been doing with various Meraki devices and accessory antennaes.

    There is another, much cheaper, alternative, when mesh nodes are the end user computers themselves. http://daihinia.com/about
