Networking Essentials IT2035FP Page 1 / 2 Wireless mesh networks 802.11s can wirelessly connect using existing technology wireless network such as the 802.11 standard. Traditional networks depend on wireless hotspots to connect users in typical café style environment. In a wireless mesh network, multiple nodes/APs (with or without Ethernet connections) communicate over wireless interfaces to form a single network. Mesh networks allow several access points to wirelessly share a single Internet connection. Nodes are small radio transmitters that function in the same way as a wireless router. Nodes use the common WiFi standards known as 802.11a, b, g, n and ac to communicate wirelessly with end-users and with other nodes. Nodes are programmed with software that tells them how to connect to the network. Information travels across the network by hopping wirelessly from one mesh node to the next. The nodes automatically choose the quickest and safest path in a process known as dynamic routing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
