In wireless networks type MESH, data packets are delivered by routing mechanism (via nodes in the network). This approach increases the range, robustness and reliability and fixes potential problems of Star topology.
Mesh is the best network topology we know; so why only just few companies offer this solution for developers? Like any great solution, the mesh network topology has a number of challenges for network platform developers such as:
- Each path can be N-1hops long
- Slow bit rates
- Routing should run in real time
- Limited HW resources
- Low power consumption often required
- Conditions can change over time
