This is a bit of a no-brainer, but IDC is saying that mesh networking will be the next step in Wi-Fi development: Motorola and Nortel are offering mesh solutions and IDC expects other major network vendors to follow suit.
As IDC notes, North America has already been building mesh networks, particularly to cover city centers. But interest is starting to grow in Europe. IDC’s research is backed up in a press release issued by Tropos which mainly just brags about Tropos deployments. But the announcement includes a statement from Esme Vos of MuniWireless noting that the site has seen a growing interest in municipal networks and that Tropos, which uses mesh technology, is a leader in deploying such networks.
