Lessons Learned while Bringing Research Results to Real-World Wireless MESH Networks

Prof. Antonio Capone
Politecnico di Milano/MobiMESH, Italy

Abstract. Wireless MESH Networks (WMNs) have been a hot research topic since several years and a large amount of research ideas and results have been obtained by the academic community. WMNs have also been one of the networking technologies that havestimulated most the launch of start-up companies where academic researchers are actively involved. Bringing research results to real-world wireless mesh devices, however, is not an easy process and sometimes the impact with reality changes the scenario of the important technical issues to be considered. The keynote will present the lessons learned in the start-up phase of a small spin-off company that has been built on the ideas and research results obtained at the ANTLab of Politecnico di Milano.
