802.11s

An IEEE standard for a Wi-Fi mesh network that forwards packets over multiple access points. Using the same network name (SSID) and IP address, an 802.11s network extends a Wi-Fi hotspot over greater distances and can also route around failures. Each node in an 802.11s network is a mesh station (mesh STA) that supports the Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP), although other protocols can be used. See 802.11 and wireless distribution system.

En cuanto al protocolo de enrutamiento a implementar en la red, se concluyo que el mas adecuado para los nodos de la malla es STP, debido a que este es un protocolo para redes fijas y de nivel 2, el cual tiene la capacidad de restablecer las rutas en caso de caida de algun enlace y ademas, concuerda con las bases del nuevo estandar IEEE 802.
