What is a mesh cell?
A mesh cell is a group of wireless mesh nodes sharing the same SSID and frequency. They are able to wirelessly link together creating a "mesh cell". Mesh cells can connect to other mesh shells via Ethernet ports or through a multi-radio mesh units, utilizing static or dynamic routing techniques.
What is the maximum number of HauteMESH units recommended per mesh cell?
8 nodes for most IP CCTV applications, up to 15 for other applications including voice and data.
What is the maximum number of hops that you recommend for IP Video applications?
8 hops maximum.
What is a hop?
A hop is counted every time data is sent from one layer 3 networking device (any HauteWRAP) and is received on another layer 3 networking device. For example, a data packet being sent from a wireless router A to wireless router c will hop two times. A to B (1 hop), B to c (1 hop).
What is the maximum number of cameras you recommend per mesh cell?/b>
Generally, 8 IP cameras. Typically up to 5 Megapixels per camera.
