MESH Routing Empowered Scalable and Intelligent WLAN

The MESH WLAN has been well researched within the last decade. The real-world deployment of MESH WLAN projects has demonstrated that with the proactive routing methods (such as OLSR), it is feasible to mesh 1000+ nodes with shared gateways. In real-world deployment, to overcome the difficulties of manageability of wireless networks, a proactive monitoring approach and intelligent self-diagnosing, self-healing  mechanisms has recently been developed by Nebula Networks. Together with MESH routing, smart, scalable and reliable wireless network may be deployed and managed by IT clueless people.

Another challenge for MESH WLAN is client roaming. To enable the seamlessly quick hand-off between Mesh APs within and/or among networks becomes the necessary features for mobile applications such as VoWIFI and mobile video surveillance. In this talk, the roaming approach will be reviewed. As part of the talk, the live demo of Nebula’s proprietary intelligent mesh WLAN will be presented.
