Mesh Network

A network in which every node connects directly to every other node in the network.

Mesh network provide low latency (direct) connections between adjacent nodes and many redundant route options between distant nodes. They are typically more expensive than hub-and-spoke or other hierarchical networks because of the extra connectivity.

Meshes are useful in radio access networks (RAN) because the extra cost is minimized to transmitters and receivers. A dynamic radio access mesh can be challenging to characterize from a performance standpoint. Cheetah Networks PulseView™ Solution provides a means to measure real time performance under varying usage patterns.
