A Brief Journey through “Wireless Mesh Networks: Architectures and Protocols” Ekram Hossain, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada Kin Leung, Imperial College, London, United Kingdom Introduction Wireless mesh networking has emerged as a promising design paradigm for next gen eration wireless networks. Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) consist of mesh clients and mesh routers, where the mesh routers form a wireless infrastructure/backbone and interwork with the wired networks to provide multihop wireless Internet con nectivity to the mesh clients. Wireless mesh networking has emerged as one of the most promising concept for self organizing and auto con?gurable wireless network ing to provide adaptive and ?exible wireless Internet connectivity to mobile users. This concept can be used for different wireless access technologies such as IEEE 802. 11, 802. 15, 802. 16 based wireless local area network (WLAN), wireless per sonal area network (WPAN), and wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN) tech nologies, respectively. Potential application scenarios for wireless mesh networks in clude backhaul support for cellular networks, home networks, enterprise networks, community networks, and intelligent transport system networks. Development of wireless mesh networking technology has to deal with challenging architecture and protocol design issues, and there is an increasing interest on this technology among the researchers in both academia and industry. There are many on going research projects in different universities and industrial research labs. Also, many startup com panies are building mesh networking platforms based on off the shelf wireless access technologies and developing demanding applications and services.

Prepare with the only official study guide for the CWNA-106

The CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide: Exam CWNA-106 is the officially endorsed CWNA test prep for the leading wireless certification. Expert authors and CWNEs David D. Coleman and David A. Westcott guide readers through the skills and concepts candidates need to know for the exam, using hands-on methods to convey an in-depth understanding of wireless network administration. Readers should have a basic knowledge of Radio Frequency behavior, experience with WLAN hardware peripherals and protocols, and an interest in designing, installing, and managing wireless networks.

Wireless technology is taking over the tech industry, and the demand for competent, certified professionals is far outpacing the supply. A CWNA certification denotes advanced-level proficiency in the field, with a complete understanding of wireless LAN components, features, and function—but the only way to pass the exam is to truly understand the material, not just the talking points. The CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide thoroughly covers each exam objective, and includes review questions, assessment tests, and exercises to test your skills. Topics include:

Radio Frequency technologies, regulations, and standards 802.11 protocols Network implementation and security 802.11 RF site surveying

Readers also get access to a suite of study tools including an electronic test engine with hundreds or practice test questions, electronic flashcards, exercise peripherals, and industry White Papers, which serve as valuable backup references. In preparing for the CWNA-106 exam, the ideal study guide should cover all of the exam topics in depth—CWNA: Certified Wireless Network Administrator Official Study Guide does just that, making it an excellent, comprehensive study guide.
