This chapter examines how several wireless mesh networks can be used to support a variety of networking activities. It explores network operational examples associated with specific vendor products instead of by application. By examining network operations with the viewpoint of a single vendor at a time, we obtain a better appreciation for the similarities and differences between currently available wireless mesh networking products. Firetide is a relatively new networking company which was founded during 2003. One router, referred to as the HotPoint 1000S is designed to be used indoors, and the vendor’s HotPoint 1000R represents a wireless mesh networking router developed for outdoor applications. In comparison, a Firetide HotPoint wireless mesh router can be viewed as providing an inverse networking function, enabling Ethernet switches or individual clients to be wired to the router which in turn provides a wireless connection to other devices in the network.
