ikewillis writes "Intel has introduced a new wireless networking standard called
802.11s. This standard utilizes a mesh topology, allowing for fully
self-configuring networks where each node can relay messages on behalf of
others, thus increasing the range and available bandwidth with the number of
nodes active within the system, versus the point-to-point structure of existing
WiFi networks. This will radically transform WiFi hotspots, allowing the
geographical area and available bandwidth on the network to scale with the
number of participants."
