Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) have the potential to revolutionize the way we use the Internet. These networks have a low power requirement and therefore could be potentially fuelled by a low cost renewable energy source. Numerous spaced out meshed nodes route the data in a multi-hop manner in the WMNs. The WMN can be designed using three different network architectures. The key benefits of using a wireless mesh network are that they are easily adaptable, expandable and have low cost compared to conventional networks. Also WMNs support high demand, which is a must in today’s world. In this paper, we study the network architectures, routing protocols, and the research challenges of WMNs.
