Mesh networking provides users wireless access to broadband applications anywhere, including a moving vehicle. Initially developed for secure and reliable military battlefield communications, mesh technology supports public safety, public access, and public works. Mesh technology reduces the expense of wide-scale networks, by leveraging Wi-Fi enabled devices already deployed.
Mesh points are access points dedicated to mesh network support. Mesh points capture and disseminate their own data and serve as a relay for other nodes.
|Mesh Point Connex Policy||Lists the administrator assigned name for the MeshConnex Policy, defined upon its creation. The name cannot be edited later with other parameters|
|Is Root||Displays whether the mesh point is the root node in the mesh network or not. True defines the mesh point as a root, False indicates that the mesh point is not a root, and None means the mesh point root has not been assigned yet|
|Preferred Root||Lists the MAC address of a preferred root device|
|Root Selection Method||Displays the method used for selecting a root node.
|Preferred Neighbor||Lists the MAC address of the preferred neighbor within the mesh point's mesh topology|
|Preferred Interface||Displays either 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz, or 5 GHz as the preferred band of operation for the mesh point|
|Monitor Critical Resources||When activated, you allow the dynamic conversion of a mesh point from root to non-root when there is a critical resource failure. This option is not selected by default|
|Monitor Primary Port Link||When activated, you allow the dynamic conversion of a mesh point from root to non-root during a link down event. This option is not selected by default|
|Path Method||Lists the root path selection method used in the mesh
network. Available options include:
