What do you think about mesh networks(indoor Enterprise solutions).How good are they.There are some Automated Sitesurvey tools provided by them(Strix), can we depend on them.Please suggest.
First, there are specific uses for Mesh networks. You shouldn't be thinking to install a mesh WLAN just because it's cool technology. There are throughput issues in comparison with 802.11a/g infrastructure networks, troubleshooting nightmares due to ever-changing routing, etc. They serve a specific purpose, and when used appropriately, meet a definite market need. Additionally, you need to consider whether clients will/won't be involved in the routing process - (www.meshnetworks.com) or (www.firetide.com) for example.
