Intel, which has been involved in the development of an 802.11s mesh standard, has introduced its proposal: The 802.11s group met for the first time in July and has issued a call for proposals. Intel’s plan builds on the existing 802.11 a/b/g standard, adding functionality that allows access points to discover each other, authenticate, establish connections, and support quality of service. Intel hopes that ratification of a standard may happen in 2008. If I’m reading this correctly, the idea is to make the mesh capability a software upgrade to existing 802.11-based gear.
