(I) Multi-hop Wireless Network
WMNs help in broadening the inclusion region of the existing network without influencing the limit of the channel and furthermore convey NLOS(non-observable pathway) between the customers, regardless of whether they don’t have any immediate connections between them. The multi-hopping in the mesh spine of WMNs is crucial, in accomplishing higher throughput with no loss of successful scope of the radio through shorter connection separations, less number of mediation in the middle of among the hubs, and additional viable re-utilization of recurrence.
(ii) Ad-hoc network support, self-association, self-mending, and self-shaping
As WMNs have adaptable network design, can without much of a stretch be sent and arranged, flaw tolerant, and multi-point association between the mesh hubs, it’s forthright venture necessity is less, and the network can be scaled up as and when required.
(iii) The movement of node relies upon the sort of nodes
In WMNs the mesh switch in mesh spine has zero versatility which is an advantage for power need. In any case, the mesh customers can be versatile just as stationary.
(iv) Many sorts of network access
WMNs, supports the association in both P2P (i.e. peer to peer)) and Internet access utilizing backhaul technique. Likewise, WMNs is coordinated with various networks and offer offices to end-clients of these networks.
(v) The confinement of energy utilization reliance on the sort of nodes
There is no impediment on vitality utilized by the spine mesh switches as it is fixed at an area. Be that as it may, the mesh customers may require the conventions which are vitality productive in nature. For instance, the correspondence conventions for a mesh-fit sensor must be vitality proficient. In this manner the MAC or steering conventions advanced for mesh switches and mesh customers, for example, sensors must be distinctive since the vitality is the key issue if there should arise an occurrence of wireless sensor networks.
(vi) Adaptability with existent wireless networks
The WMNs developed relying upon IEEE 802.11 innovations ought to be to such an extent that it is must be friendly with IEEE 802.11 norms in the rationale of strong with both the networks which are able to mesh spine and traditional networks having Wi-Fi customers. These WMNs are with the end goal that different partners as WiMAX, Zig-Bee, and cell networks can work all the while. Keeping in view the attributes of WMNs we can say that WMNs are a kind of ad-hoc network with additional abilities. In this way, ad hoc networks can truly be considered as a subgroup of WMNs.
