Re: scarcity
I can't see how mesh networking is going to solve the problem of local superpeaks in wireless demand -- there are only so many WAPs in an arena or hall to provide connectivity for the occupants. All mesh routing will do is spread the pain among the crowd and annoy the cognoscenti who cluster in the far corners of the hall where the closest WAPs aren't being pounded on quite as hard as the ones down front or in the middle of the seating areas. I also wonder what the ping times are going to be like for someone connected to the internet via a mesh chain of half a dozen low-powered handheld devices rather than single-hopping to the nearest WAP, no matter how much contention there is going on at that device.
