This paper proposes collaborative mesh networking as an alternative to the conventional multi-hop mesh networks for wireless connectivity in rural areas. The proposed method integrates a collaborative transmit beamforming technique in a wireless mesh network. As opposed to the approach of multi-hop mesh, where each node takes turn as a relay station to… CONTINUE READING
