How could Mesh networks be used to address intrusion and monitoring concerns?
jack12 25 weeks ago
I was in the shower yesterday and heard a piece on Morning Edition about the use of mesh networks in response to concerns over outside entities monitoring activity. I didn’t catch the entire thing, but it seemed to imply that a mesh network would be a more secure alternative to a traditional network. Does this make any sense? I thought mesh networks were essentially a method of connecting devices on a network through something akin to a cellular communication network, hopping a device to another access point as needed. What would make a mesh more (or less) secure than any other network?
