A Smart Mesh network is a peer-to-peer, multi-hop wireless network wherein participant nodes cooperate to route packets. Basically, mesh allows access points to communicate with each other and load balance to assure adequate capacity at different areas of the building. Multiple radios and antennas in each access point assure no weak spots in an office.
Smart Mesh networks are self-healing: If any one of the nodes fails, the nodes note the blockage and re-route data.
Smart Mesh networks are self-organizing: When a new node appears, it becomes assimilated into the mesh network.
