Mesh WLAN

In what case is it absolutely necessary to deploy a mesh network instead of a regular mesh?

Re: Mesh WLAN

What is the difference between regular mesh and a mesh network?

Re: Mesh WLAN

I was recently faced with the same question/issue.  For me the difference is that "regular mesh" is part of ArubaOS and the controller environment, while "mesh network" is part of the AirMesh product line running MeshOS.  We have a policy that all vlans are tagged on trunk links and that was not possible with ArubaOS (the management vlan had to be untagged). We are now using the MST200 for point to point bridging.

 

I guess that the question for Verotiana is, what are you trying to accomplish?

Ok, typo, my mistake.

I meant "In what case is it absolutely necessary to deploy a mesh network instead of a regular wireless network?"

Re: Mesh WLAN

Mesh networks are usually deployed outdoors, where the uplink of an accesspoint is not wired but wireless.

Re: Mesh WLAN

Not sure I follow, but anything client to AP is 'wireless access / wireless network', anything AP to AP could be 'mesh / wireless bridging'.
