Suppose you want a broadband internet connection but you are operating it in a county with more cows than
people, and DSL and cable simply aren’t available? Having access to fast broadband is important for both
individuals and businesses. If you are in a rural area, it is unlikely that you will have access to cable broadband.
Wireless Mesh Networks have become popular and are used everywhere as an alternative to broadband
connections. The ease of configuration of wireless mesh LAN, the mobility of clients, and the large coverage
make it attractive choice for supporting wireless technology in LAN and MAN. The most recent report from the
Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development ranks the U.S. 12th in total broadband penetration.
“There are a slew of technologies out there, but it looks like fixed wireless has taken forefront, [with] satellite
service being a good alternative in some areas,” Scott Lindsay, head of the Rural Broadband Coalition in
Washington said.
Wireless mess technology, an end-to-end solution specifically designed for service providers deploying wireless
community services for cities, has the flexibility and capacity required to deliver many different applications to
millions of users across an entire city. ISPs can offer many different services on their network. The types of
services offered depend on the competitive environment and the business needs of the service provider. A local
cable company could use a community Wi-Fi network as a mobility enhancement for their residential
broadband service. ISPs that provide dial-up service may move to Wi-Fi as a way to own a broadband
connection to their customers. Rural telephone companies could operate Wi-Fi networks as their primary
infrastructure for reaching their customers.
