A Wireless Mesh Network-based System for Hotspots Deployment and Management
— In recent years Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) or hotspots, as they are commonly known, have emerged as a promising networking platform to extend network connectivity in public venues, providing local coverage for Internet applications on the move in urban areas and rural environments. Wireless hotspots using 802.11-based technology have popped up in corporate offices, coffehouses, airports, restaurants and bookstores worldwide. For all their utility and ease of use the 802.11 wireless protocol, known as WiFi, has become the mobile connectivity mechanism of choice for businesspeople, travelers, villagers, and everyone else. Unfortunately, even with the protocol’s ease of use and its accessibility, there are still technical challenges to be solved toward an ubiquitous connectivity using WiFi hotspots. In this paper we present an experimental wireless system which extends beyond the hotspot’s capabilities to provides wireless connectivity at distant areas and at a low cost...
