A type of multipoint-to-multipoint network in which each node has a connection to more than one other node, forming a "mesh" or lattice. Communications may pass along links between several nodes before reaching their destinations. In a mesh network, all nodes can communicate with all other nodes along more than one path. This redundancy means that mesh networks tend to be resilient, coping with disruptions to one signal path by rerouting to another.
