Wireless Routing/Multi-hop Architectures (and Applicability to 802.11)
Christian Dubiel, FHP Wireless
Date: Wednesday, April 23
Time: 5:15pm - 6:00pm
Location: Stevens Creek
The introduction of routing into wireless networks enables the creation of new network architectures that can extend the benefits of traditional point-to-point or point-to-multipoint networks. Specifically, multi-hop routing techniques have been used to provide extended wireless network coverage, overcome line-of-sight limitations and to enable rapid deployment of ad-hoc wireless networks.
Dubiel's talk examines the ways in which routing techniques can be incorporated into wireless networking, highlighting the benefits and limitations of multi-hop network architectures. The discussion will examine three wireless routing approaches: mobile ad-hoc/mesh, fixed multipoint-to-multipoint, and routed radio access networks.
Specific topics include:
- Intro: wireless routed networks--what are they
- Characteristics of wireless routed networks (i.e. how are they
different from traditional wired routing)
- Primary wireless routing implementations:
- mobile ad-hoc/mesh
- radio access network
- Benefits and limitations of each
- Potential impact of wireless routing (e.g. on the future of 802.11)
