Wireless Routing/Multi-hop Architectures (and Applicability to 802.11)
Christian Dubiel, FHP Wireless

Track: Untethered
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
      - multipoint-to-multipoint
      - radio access network
  • Benefits and limitations of each
  • Potential impact of wireless routing (e.g. on the future of 802.11)
