Wi-Mesh Alliance Presents Proposal for IEEE 802.11s

The Wi-Mesh Alliance presented a proposal for a new global mesh WLAN standard to the IEEE 802.11 Task Group S (TGs).

The Wi-Mesh Alliance said its design intent is to be extensible with the future 802.11n high throughput amendment, provide support for the existing worldwide Wi-Fi network installed base, while extending Wi-Fi network deployments within designated radio frequency (RF) spectrum.

Details of the proposal are online.

Members of the Wi-Mesh Alliance include Accton, ComNets, InterDigital Communications, NextHop Technologies, Nortel, and Thomson.
