Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are wireless communication networks organized in a mesh topology with radio capabilities. These networks can self-form and self-heal and are not restricted to a specific technology or communication protocol. They provide flexible yet reliable connectivity that cellular networks cannot deliver. Thanks to technological advances in machine learning, software defined radio, UAV/UGV, big data, IoT and smart cities, wireless mesh networks have found much renewed interest for communication network applications.
