A wireless mesh network (WMN) is termed as a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. It is also a form of wireless network. The wireless mesh networks often consist of mesh clients, mesh routers, and gateways.
The mesh clients are often laptops, cell phones, and the other wireless devices while the mesh routers foreword traffic to and from the gateways which may, but need not, be connected to the internet. The coverage area of the radio nodes working as a single network is called as a mesh cloud.
Access to this mesh cloud is dependent on the radio nodes working in harmony with each other to create a radio network. A mesh network is reliable and offers lay-off. When one node can no longer operate, the rest of the nodes can still communicate with each other, directly or through one or more intermediate nodes.
Wireless mesh networks can self form and self heal. Wireless mesh networks can be implemented with various wireless technologies including cellular technologies and need not be restricted to any one technology or protocol.
Unlike Wide Area Network access points, the WMN architecture does not need cables to wired port. The architecture of Wireless Mesh Network provides economic and spectral efficiency and also delivers high bandwidth over the coverage area.
WMNs are amongst the most efficient technologies to provide wireless broadband services without investing in costly radio spectrum. Wireless Mesh Networks help enterprises in generating more revenue by extending the reach of Wireless Local Area Networks securely, and in a cost-effective manner.
Several network operators have adopted this network to perform a wide range of applications such as home networking, community networking video supervision, medical device connectivity and various functions; which was not possible with the help of traditional wireless facility.
The emergence of the wireless mesh network as cost-effective solutions for the enhancement of wireless communications across several industry verticals; along with its easy & fast deployment facility are likely to augment market size in the upcoming years.
The increasing LTE & 3G networks and their rising demand can restrict the growth of wireless mesh network market during the forecast period. The rapid adaptation of wireless mesh network for public safety has become critical in several industries and can have a positive impact on the market penetration for the network.
Wireless Mesh Network Market size By Radio Frequency Band spans Sub- 1 GHz Band, 4 GHz Band, 9 GHz Band, 5GHz Band. Wireless Mesh Network Market size By Application spans Hospitality, Government, Logistics, Mining, Education, Health Care, Others. Wireless Mesh Network Market size By Geographical Region spans North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
North America has the largest market size for wireless mesh network and projected to show a significant growth over the forecast period on account of increasing consumer preference for mesh network due to safety & security concerns across various industry verticals.
Additionally, growing acceptance of Internet of Things (IoT) in order to have better connectivity & fast data sharing has also boosted the usage of the wireless mesh network in the region. Asia Pacific has the fastest growing wireless mesh network market size and is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to rising number of smart city projects initiatives to offer a safe & communication infrastructure to the societies.
