Mesh node

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A mesh node is a node on a mesh network. This node can be anything with a network transceiver. Mesh nodes communicate with each other and use some sort of ad hoc networking protocol to route messages amongst themselves without the need for a traditional, hierarchical routing model. This also allows for nodes to join, move among, and drop out of the network without having to make administrative changes.
