Underscoring the growing trend to move to next generation mesh networks, the municipality of Red River, New Mexico has replaced its existing wireless mesh network in favor of a third generation network from MeshDynamics. The newly deployed mesh network, which the municipality says serves up to 15,000 people in the resort town, solves the "multi-hop" challenges that first and second generation mesh networks initially deployed in municipalities could not handle.
MeshDynamics, Inc. also announced new features in its MD4000 family of Structured Mesh„§ wireless nodes to bolster security and fine-tune performance in demanding outdoor 802.11 WiFi networks. The two features include support for IEEE 802.11e Class-of-Service and expanded WiFi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) security. The combination of these two features allows network providers to offer different service types securely on a single wireless mesh infrastructure.
