Advantages and Disadvantages of Mesh Networks

Filed under: WiMAX — dedi @ 5:40 pm

Advantages:

  • Extended range with extra hop.
  • Increased NLOS Coverage when one or more mesh nodes are added to go around obstacles.
  • Alternate paths in case of failure or performance degradation.

Disadvantages:

  • Increased delay introduced by multiple hops.
  • Increased complexity of protocols (MAC, routing, management, security).
  • Increased complexity of planning of initial coverage (network seeding).
