Adhoc netwok, wifi


#1

hi.
I am trying to build an adhoc network using Wifi, preferably a mesh network. I know that building such a network is easy using Zigbee, but it has low data rate.
I also heard that 802.11s is for mesh networking, but I dont know how much it is practical, and which dragonboard support it.

Do you have any suggestion for me?

Thanks,
Ahmad

Hi @amati,

I only aware of ad-hoc network were practically used on OLPC (One Laptop per chile) project in the past but 802.11s is totally new for me.

It would be nice if you would be the first person to report your experience on IEEE 802.11s on this forum. :slight_smile:
